Heh. I did take the basket off, and my dad fitted a pouch under the seat for my iPod. I've also got a big maroon poncho thing for when it's raining - it covers the whole thing, and me, with my head poking out the top under a hood. The laydeez love it ...

It won't do 25 miles, though - the furthest I've gotten is just over 16.

Sure. You have to flick the "Speed" switch to indoor when you're on the pavement, though - apparently 4mph is the limit.

Heh. Car would be better, but I'm too cheap!

The again, I know 2 people who died in traffic accidents on bikes, both were the fault of incompetent car drivers.

But if I go work in London it'd be so much more convenient...

From what I've heard, the CBT "Test" you have to take is hardly anything like a test at all!

It's more like... An "All-Day Lesson", in the way your are, basically, helped to drive around cones and stuff, and, according to someone I know who recently passed his, they pretty much but the words in your mouth for the answers to the questions, anyway.

All you really have to do is pay your fee, turn up, and it's a guarrenteed pass - not even `I┤ could fail this one (however, I see much more sense in driving a CAR rather than one of those little "gimp-mobiles"!).

Anyway, buy a car. Or a real bike. Mopeds are death-traps and most moped drivers are really irritating as they haven't got a clue on road rules.
