Plenty of Cub folks with the new C125 now, and they are well liked. You'll find a fair amount of feedback and write ups on here.

I was 14 stone and 6' and rode a Cub. (I'm under 12 stone and 5'11" now but that's another story :lol: )

I'm in West Sussex. So is Barker. Other Cub folks aren't too far away.

Hi and Welcome, I'm 6"4"and about 17 stone :oops:, and I have no trouble on a C90, you mentioned a C50, your not to big but the lack of speed might be annoying.

You would fit the new 125 with ease ,Black Country Pete 6 foot plus a bit :lol: has one and has done some long distance runs on it , I rode it last year (2019) and found it ok at 6 foot plus .
The Southern Softies in August will be fun.

Hi David and welcome... yes you probably are to big/tall and heavy for a cub..... just like thousands of other people!
I'm 6'5" and 110kg / 17stone in my kit and don't care what I look like on my super cub and if it brings a laugh or smile to folk that's great.
I did give up riding the c90 because I could not hold my own in modern traffic being constantly overtaken is not ideal.
Although I have only put 600 miles on my new 125 super cub it seems to be able to hold it's own in modern traffic but is still 100% Honda cub.
