Bad news is that a big end has just gone in my trusty (up to now) CX500.\nNow awaiting surgery/transplant. Good news is that I have rediscovered the\njoys of my CG125 (MTSOTHPR). I took it out for a bimble and thoroughly\nenjoyed myself. Ah, the excitement of reaching up to 50mph on twisty\ncountry lanes and 65mph on long (very long) straights. Mind you on a CG125\nyou get twice the thrills at half the speed - especially when approaching\nsharp corners and realising that there is only a pathetic little drum brake\non the front which is having GREAT difficulty in reducing that "massive"\n50mph down to something low enough to keep you on the road. Great fun. And\nit has a new replacement cheapo silencer that makes it sound quite\nimpressive too - my son came out to look at my "new" bike when he heard it.\nHe couldn't believe it was only the CG.
