    We are thinking of buying a small (125cc) scooter to put on back of van - does anyone have any recommendations? We will have quite a substantial payload to play with but would like a lightweight bike so that we can manhandle it easily enough. Thanks.

    We have the Honda PCX 125 - wonderful machine and so easy to ride in the traffic with two up.

    We have a Suzuki Address 125, almost the same as the Honda Innova

    Keeps up with traffic no problem even when two up.

    Do you need to have a full bike licence To go two up on a 125 cc scooter abroad?

    I'd like the answer to this one too. Though I think you need to pass your bike test first, car licence only cover you up to 50cc if you passed you test before a certain date.

    I think you need your bike test before you can go two up on a 125. Two up on a 50 CC is covered by your car licence unless you are young.

    Don't forget that with a 125 even if it's just you , you have to do a CBT course before you can ride it and I believe you have to retake the CBT every 2 years.

    The CBT is easy enough but you will find you will do it with a load of 16 year old moped monkeys.. That was my experience a few years back anyway.

    Edit - you don't need a CBT if you have a full bike licence

    For two-up riding you definately need to obtain the full motorbiking licence.
    I did and can now proceed with my yamaha ybr125 on my motorbike rack.
