Yes I think a few fathers don't mind their kids learning on an airhead ... plus also it seems alot are being " cafed "

Yes LAMS approved here too, I did cringe a bit when he collected it and put an L sticker on it....back in the day a learners bike was a Honda 125/250..... now you need 40+ HP.
Most young guys go for a Japper as they are too tied up in Ilife and Friendbook to work on machines...

I did my L's on 200 cc Lambretta ... Bored out to 225 with a race kit and power pipe ... Still one of the quickest bikes off the mark that I have even ridden .

On that point there are quite a few guys reliving their Mod youth ... With prices of a Lambretta and a few collectible Vespa ( GS and the like ) . Prices of those aren't that much what I paid for the R90S ... The difference I fell a lot more comfortable travelling more than 100 km's from my house than a vintage scooter
