Also, it sounds like comfort is a high-priority on your list, that sounds practical. The fact is, hyper bikes like the Hyabusa and ZX-12 arent that comfortable either. Look how the riders have to hunch forward. That will get uncomfortable quick. well the busa is supposed to be pretty comfortable. B...

The insurance isn't really a problem. Although I am a first time rider, I have 0 accidents and 0 traffic violations on my record and have been driving for about 7 years now, not including the underage driving I was doing before I got my license. I drive an 02 Chevy Corvette convertible that is a li...

all other issues aside, if you think your going to finance a 13000$ motorcycle then actually afford the insurance you might want to call a local insurance person and just utter the words 'hayabusa' and 'loan', see how fast you hang the phone up honestly. not to mention tires every what 4000 miles? v...

One thing is certain. The higher your skill level, the better prepared you are for any possible situation. So, ride often, and practice your necessary skills frequently. Use a parking lot after, or before business hours. Set up cones, tennis balls cut in half, whatever. Have fun getting good at thi...

Well I am starting on a 91 CBR 600. I cant say I chose the bike, the bike chose me. It was forgotten in a garage for a few years. It was offered to me for $800 with full equipment. Too good of a deal to miss. I have some experience riding mopeds. I used to drive a stella (http://www.mopedarmy.com/p...

Re: how to fill tank

I use option #2. Also I get fuel in a clean plastic gas can and fill my bikes at home. The reason being that if using a pump that has one hose for all grades, if you want premium you will pump at least 1/2 gal of what ever fuel was pumped last. If you pump 1 gal into your car and then fill the gas ...

i jam the nozzle all the way in the tank and fill fast without worrying of it splashing out. then as it gets near the top i pull out and slow fill to get it near the top. end up holding my hand under the nozzle while its over my tank to catch and dribbles.

I don't want to buy a pos to ride for a month then sell it and buy a better bike that suits me more. No offense dude, but until you get some experience under your belt, you have no idea what bike suits you the most. You DO have an idea of what bike you'd like to BE SEEN on . Hey that's great.

Attitude, Attitude, Attitude. If you were going to fly a plane you would go to flight school, right. So if a guy wants to ride a race spec bike why not. If you go to flight school they will tell you when you can fly. Apply the same rules to the race bike, go to school, have the instructers tell you...

Even if you put some sort of governor on the bike, you still have to contend with the twitchy steering response and the grabby brakes, two things which can easily put a rider down. exactly. it may be light but it is top heavy and ment to tip over fast. most likely youll be going slow but weaving al...
