I've been riding the Big Burg for a few years now and besides a few issues (suspension, mostly sorted) it's been an ideal mount. Thing is, I'm worried about losing my motorcycle shifting skills--I enjoyed that aspect of riding. So I've been toying with getting a CBR125 just to keep the muscles busy. It's small on everything, gas/insurance/maintenance/hp. I know it's no freeway monster (tested the first NA model, maybe about 110km/h max). What I want to know generally is: how dangerous is slow accelaration and restricted top speed? Are there more close calls in traffic than on more powerful machines? I know I don't need 100hp, nor even 50hp. My old gs500 did fine with 35. Bigger isn't always better, but when is small too small?
