Yeah, 125s are not my cup of tea any more. They are fun and light but, I'm old and fat now so...

You will figure it out with time but they are very much like a light switch. It's either on (wide open throttle) or it is off (anything less than WOT). They don't make much torque as you found out on that first hill. You need momentum and you need it to be on the pipe to get up things like that. If you do that they can go thru and over most anything. Just takes some seat time.

Yeah, I'm already learning a bit about that...I clearly have a TON more learning to do though. I'd be happy to keep learning through you guys so that maybe my curve can be a little less steep
