Run a hand over it once in a while and enjoy it.

If it was me, I'd be keeping your fantastic CB125, surely it can only appreciate in value from here.

Think you'll regret it if you sell.......
Thanks for your kind comments chaps, as you say cost relatively nothing (insurance & electric) to keep it in it's air-con cocoon, just seems a shame for it to not to be ridden, if I could find someone else locally to go on trips with, I would keep it. Tried several branches of the Vintage Japanese Club, but the members just seem to be frustrated Rossi's (Barry Sheene's for you oldies) who want to ride everywhere balls out, on 1990's GPZ's & GSX's (not exactly what I class a classic bike) dressed in multi-coloured leathers with knee sliders, all very well on modern stuff, but hardly in keeping with a 65 mph 125 !!

Michael.
