Honda are bringing out a new cub its a 125 that does 180 mpg price is 2000 according to mcn last week,its probably more than you wanted to spend but no doubt there will a deal on hp,Honda are also fitting free trackers to all there new bikes which should help with insurance and as a deterrent from theft,it looks smart too.old bikes are ok if you can fix them yourself but if you cant it will be a money pit.

Wouldnt want to be spending that on a winter machine. Could pick up an adventure bike for 1500. But begrudge paying that, I want something that will slide across the ice without me worrying!

Saw a plated husky locally but the guy wont budge on 1500 which is a bummer.

Having a good winter hack to commute on is a very bitter pill to swallow!
You have to forget about getting any bike that might be fun to ride and aim purely for reliability, weather protection & economy - and nothing else.
Completely forget being a rider, think like a commuter instead - and what does that job best is as close to 2 wheeled car as you can find.
You workmate's got it right with a 125 scooter!
Like I said........having a good winter hack to commute on is a very bitter pill to swallow!
