In Mexico City looking for a bike

Hello all,

I'd like to buy a 125cc bike here and take it as far south as my will and money'll take me. Any advice as to where to find a used one, and saddlebags? Is there a requirement for a motorcycle license for a bike that small?

Gotta do it!

Mike.

bike in mexico

I just met a guy 2 days ago in Uvita Costa Rica who bought a CGL125 Honda in Quintana Roo Mexico, got his plates the next day, put on some cheap Givi panniers and high-tailed it south...he's going to Ushuaia on it.
Cost was 1400 usd new, here is 1700usd by comparison.
If you are over 180-200 lbs I recommend a slightly bigger seat like the 150 honda Job has.
Suzuki GN125 is a good bike too and has more power and bigger seat, maybe costs 100 more ??
Genesis now sells the same bike as the cgl125 same manufacturer etc for less than Honda price (Yamaha dealers sell these)
I just bought a Genesis 200 enduro which is exact copy of Suzuki DR200 and boy do I like it ! In Mexico it is a Euromot, or QingQi, or Qlink or somesuch name..decent price too. All suzuki parts fit it.
