Re-Joining After Buying a New Super Cub

Post by 2wheels » Sun Nov 17, 2019 4:24 pm

Hi there, I was a regular visitor (and member) a few years back but sold my C90 so stopped visiting the site.
I've now acquired a lovely new C125 Super Cub so thought re-joning would be a good idea, there are a few write-ups / discussions about the new Super Cub on this forum after all.
Anyway, it's nice to be back :)

Hi and welcome
Exactly the same story as me, only sold my 90 because I could not hold my own in modern traffic and everyone made it there mission to overtake and bully me into the kerb. This new 125 whilst still totally cub (even rubber swingarm bearings ) can live with traffic.
So what colour did you opt for?
Many happy safe miles

It had to be a blue one...to me it just looks right. I also bought a rack and have a retro looking stainless steel topbox fitted. I've owned it two weeks now and have covered 350 miles - it definitely is a fun bike to ride :)

That was my choice as well including rack passed my test on blue 70 back in 81.
Brilliant miles you have put on already 200 on mine now but down with man flu.

The seat is fine so far - not as much room to move about on as the seat from a C90, but it's plenty big enough and we'll padded.
