125 to 600

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by mini_chew90, May 17, 2008.

  1. Hey guys quick question. not that i'll be getting on soon, but do you think that a 125cc to a 600cc is too big of a step??

  2. No, no problem at all.
  3. should be OK. you could do the hart intermediate course on a 600 to see how you go.
  4. Only if you intend to lift the engine with one arm.
  5. 250 to 1000 is the same step, proportionately, and lots of guys do that.
  6. hmm i notice noone has said it all comes down to how your going to ride the thing, snap the throttle open like you would on your 125 and you could hurt your pride and your wallet, take it easy and there won't be a problem at all
  7. cheers guys for the input
  8. Everything happens a lot quicker.

    Find somewhere quiet to practice manouvering slowly, starting up hill, making tight turns and simulated filtering.

    Also work at turning the blinkers on & off without looking. :?
