Not sure what your phallic imagery has to do with motorcycles. If I go more than half a mile from my house I usually don't walk. I ride my bicycle or take a motor vehicle. If I spend more than 3% of my income on fuel then it becomes a concern.

If you want a 125 and it is not available then feel free to do it yourself. In the part of the country that I live in riding 55 is a recipe for disaster if I am on pavement. Putting a 125 single four stroke in a small road bike is not much of a challenge. 250s make a much better compromise in speed and economy.

Rather can complain make up what works.

“There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
Ayn Rand
