The Aprilia now, I think you can get here, but only for "off-road" use. I did see an RS125R with street tags one time though.
The RS125 is still available in the shops here, sold restricted to 15hp, and
road legal. It costs just a tiny bit less then Kawasaki ER6n, or the Aprilia
Pegaso Strada 650 though.

There's also one Derbi GPR 125 2 stroke leftover (from 2007!!) available
locally, same story, 15hp restricted, good for 90mph derestricted.
Engine from the Yamaha TZR 125.

for my.. this:



The only thing stopping me is my common sense (read: My GF.)


I would LOVE to have that thing!
Am I too old for that nonsense at the age of 30?

I think anything with a shifter, especially on a low powered engine is a pain
around town. Great? Probably not. Fun? HELL YEAH!

How would that help? "Honey bum, sugar plum, apple of my eye, A man halfway around the world thinks that doing this is the proper thing, so can I?" Especially considering that this site is for a particular brand of two wheeled crazy.


As I have said before, A Girlfriend has no say. A fiance is a girlfriend with a ring. A wife is the one that can lay down the law.

That goes both ways btw.

Do it.
I'm about to turn 40. I look back on me at 30 and have no regrets about wishing I'd bent to the will of a girlfriend more. If anything, I wish I'd had less girlfriends since all my exes seem now to have corralled some guy into minivan/mortgage/kids land while I escaped that trap.

Would I repeat it to your gf? You bet. I'm not sleeping with her. What do I care?

Quoted for truth.

I'm one of the lucky ones, she hates kids..

Seriously tho, the guy wants some money in that trade, and I really can't
afford to keep 2 bikes now, but would get into it if it was a straight up trade,
at least to have some fun on it for a season or two.

What I really need is a 50cc scoot so she can ride too (no big bike licence).

I'm about to turn 48 and after a boat load of crap over the last couple of years, wish to hell that I hadn't bent AT ALL!.

Women are evil creatures, hellbent on sucking the life out of you if you'll let them. Do what makes YOU happy. If you don't, no one else will. If your girl really loves you she'll understand. If she doesn't... hell, another will be along any minute now...

Back to the bikes... I still think that Madass looks cool as hell. Is 30 too old? Hell NO! I'm 48 and I'd ride it if in the right locale for a bike of that nature. As you get older you'll realize that age is a figment of peoples imagination. At least until your body won't cooperate with your mind any longer. My point is, as long as you're physically able, don't let a number dictate what you enjoy. You'll still want to have fun when you're 60 unless you let a woman make an old man out of ya, that is...

No kidding - I'm 64 and still having fun - probably more than when I was 40 (I really was much older then than now). I'm very fortunate in that my wife also rides and supports my desire to get out and play on 2 wheels.

Being older and no longer giving a shit what others think about what I ride/drive/fly/play, I'll show up at the Rock Store, Newcomb's Ranch, Neptune's Net, etc. on what ever feels good that day, including the Helix scooter.

If you enjoy the MadAss, then go for it. Hell, you can always change your mind and get a different one. The GF might even find that there's a certain caché to riding on one.
