Hi and welcome to the forum.

Advice on 125...about a grand....

Don't bother, it's not as if you have never ridden a bike or are frightened of them, you don't say where you are living but you should be able to get a direct access course near you.

Direct access allows you to bypass the 125 stage, take lessons and a test on the trainers bike, then buy any bike you want,...If you are thinking of buying a 125 just to learn and take the test on you have to pay a fortune for the bike, another for the insurance, then more for any lessons and tests, then repairs and maintenance, some on tax and mot. You can cut that down by going to a decent direct access course.

If however you are going to be riding for many years on a 125, go the way the others suggested.
