My thought would be that it would only cost you a little less as the bike will still look like a full power 600 to anyone wanting to steal it.

I think the only way to find out would be to ring some insurance companies and get quotes over the phone.

Mind you I am a little concerned that it is very slack in places and quite tight in others. Do I need to replace the chain? Trike is mostly because Jules will be pillion. (YOUR mobile is turned off) I'll have a look - can't remember when it was last done, know it's been a while though. Who's 'Lex? ...

Re: Need help convincing my mom to let me get a bike

she was like "you can get a motorcycle when you move out" My mother said the same and I actually had to move out (don't let this put you off though). She has come around to the idea now though (3 years on) and wants me to take her out as a pillion. The thing to do, as others have mentioned, is show...

As far as I was told it came out of a running superdream and I've never taken it apart. However it did live in the bike pit at ours with the ivy as a rainguard. That'd be cool, saves me taking the radiator up to him in a rucksack :) Even if he dosn't answer his phone or reply to queries on his Live...

They are Bridgestone Battlax BT45. Same as I have on my CB500. Quite a long lasting tyre, I've had 8-10,000 miles out of a rear and the front is on at least 12,000 and still going strong

I have been, and still am using this method to turn my CB500 round in tight space such as my drive, it saves a lot of hastle and is a lot faster than a 20 point turn. I've never had any problems with it, and the sidestand is fine. I know several other riders that also use this technique, but general...

I want one of those! I think that would be a sweet around-town bike. There not just good for around town. Had mine for 3 years now and it's still a lot of fun to ride, have even taken it down the drag strip a few times. It's good 2 up (unless your both on the large side) and I've even been to ralli...
