2007 Yamaha YBR125 from United Kingdom
Best times with Dad, EVER!!
Nothing that wasn't my fault.
What a fantastic bike! I passed my CBT on this machine, and after my Dad broke his leg on it, showing me how to ride 'safely', he and I rode it on a camping mission! I'm a fairly big lad and my Dad's a complete pork hound... Dad had to ride it as I wasn't qualified for taking a pillion. We decided to go 'tarping' (extreme camping)... It was May, so the weather wasn't too cold. Before we 'went for it', we did our homework. See what the little bike could do. We went on a little ride with a full expedition load... Oh dear!
My little Yam struggled, really badly! But my Dad's a clever bloke. He's a teacher... and fat... and busted his leg showing me how to ride safely (idiot). But he is, actually, a very clever man. "Two up, with all this gear, this mission is suicide!"... He said. I asked if that meant it was off... "No!"... he said... "We must use our brains!". Dad suggested that we leave home before 'God got up' and caught the 'grim reaper with his pants down'... So we did!!
We left home at 05:30... Filled my bike (it was on vapor) with £9:00 of petrol and pottered off... Dad riding and me as pillion with an enormous Bergen on my back! Dad was SO chuffed... His plan worked!! We got behind a big Polish lorry and stayed there, 50MPH... We pottered along for 50 miles before diving off onto 'slower' roads and on towards the campsite.
Wonderful little weekend away, 'hard core' camping with Dad. He's such a lovely idiot. I love him SO much... And I love my Yamaha YBR 125 too! Mum rocked up to 'save' Dad. He's not in the best of health, bless him. I ROARED (110 miles) home at 60 MPH behind Mum's 2.2 Astra. I've a feeling she wasn't 'gunning' it!
Best bike EVER!!!
