I'm only 5'8" and 185 and the 125 is barely big enough for me to ride comfortably. You need something with a larger frame. Maybe a CB500 or an XS650 perhaps? Something along those lines.


I'm 6'3 and I'm perfectly comfortable on my CB125S with drag bars...   I might LOOK silly, but it's not uncomfortable to me.

Then again, I've been riding sportbikes for 20 years and still do... so my idea of comfort is relative to that.

Give some thought to that shifter linkage.  It's looking a little flimsy.  You should be able to manage the offset of the shifter and foot lever with the use of threaded rod and clevis, and you get adjustability as well.

Mount the clevis on the inside of the foot lever and the outside of the shifter to reduce the offset, and the clevis are designed to work on an angle as well.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Here is a vid of the taillight, its three high power LEDs driven by an Arduino in a box under the seat.. they flash rapidly three times before they come on fully when I hit the brake, but you cant see it in the video because the capture framerate is not quick enough.   did the circuit design, build, and code myself

For YouTube just paste the regular URL into your post

How are you sharing your photos?  Doesn't seem to be working.
