Sold my 'summer' car because of my bike...

It seems that my bike took a lot of the fun out of my summer car, 91 Toyota MR2... So much so, that I just sold it today- and now I'm in search for a more practical daily driver/bad weather car (thinking of a VW GTI), for when I'm not or cannot be on the bike. Am I alone? Or did some of you find a w...

Hmmm... I'd love to tell him to hold off until it's actually out, but I think they want him to put down a deposit for it right now... Hopefully that's not the case. gsus.... I don't know about the 250 Ninja being fuel injected, but I sure do like your Magna. That is one good looking bike. Thanks :th...

2010 Ninja 250R, fuel injected?

My friend is looking to get a new Ninja 250 and this one dealer "friend" called him and told him to buy the 2010 model that they (the stealership) are getting in October because they are fuel injected. I can't find anything online that can confirm this... have any of you guys heard this or is my fri...

I'm dyslexic when it comes to choosing Insurance coverages!

Last May I got into an accident, when an old man ran a stop sign and got in front of me. He was coming from a small side street and went into the main 2 lane street that I was on. I was wearing full gear at the time, but still I had to have surgery on my knee this past January and I'm still working ...

Anybody riden an 07-08 Z1000?

I've fallen in love with this bike for some reason, guess I just have a soft spot for naked bikes. Anyway, has anyone on here been on a 07+ Kawasaki Z1000? Anyone know how it compare to a 97 VFR? I know it makes about 20 hp & 20 lb/ft more than my VFR, but I'm curious about the power delivery on the...

Actually, that is what we agreed upon today. Unfortunately, his financial situation is not so great right now give that he has a 2 month old son. So, I'm drawing up a contract with him, which will allow him to pay me in payments.

Cousin crashed my bike... couple of question

The bike was my 97 VFR750 :( After just having finished working on another friends bike (we installed sliders and fender eliminator on his new GSXR). My cousin pulled my bike out to the alley so that my friend could take his first ride on it (he didn't want to ride without the sliders). My bike was ...

Re: Is there a bike out with a mix of cruiser and sport bike

I put my bike up for sale on CL for about a day (if that) and then reconsidered, partly because I couldn't remember where I had left my title. However, I'm now going to give the VFR another chance this Spring. IF, the bike still doesn't work out for me, I have for the most part narrowed my selection...

Re: Is there a bike out with a mix of cruiser and sport bike

Thanks for all of the suggestions! Unfortunately I'm biased towards the Japanese (& Ducati) bikes because I have several local dealers for them around me.... Suzuki B-King - I got to sit on one of these bikes a few weeks ago while my friend was buying an 09 600 GSXR. It felt big and wide while still...

Is there a bike out with a mix of cruiser and sport bike?

I started off on an 83 Honda Shadow 750 in 2007, in May of 2008 I moved up to a 96 Honda Magna only to loose it in an accident a week later. After I got back on my feet a few months later I decided to try a different style bike, so I picked up a really low mileage 88 Honda Hawk GT NT650 (at a really...

What are the chances of recovering a stolen bike?!

I just found out that my friends 2007 White Honda CBR600RR was stolen last week Tuesday. I have yet to get all of the details from him since I actually just found out from another friend, I called to confirm the story though. http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/3830/mikeysbikejg3.png Obviously if any...

Shopping for new helmet - Shoei, Joe Rocket, Scorpion

My flat black Type-O HJC CL-SP is no longer produced in the design that I had and the insurance company tells me that they will be taking it if they are paying for it. Fine with me. So i spent a couple of hours at the local dealer test fitting different helmets. I found none of the HJC helmets to fi...

I have a beater car that I use to ride around when I'm not using my MR2. I was hoping to do the same until I can afford to pay for the bike that I want (in cash)- I'm looking for a 98+ VFR. Anyway, I'm thinking of getting a used Purple 1994 Suzuki GS500e (4.5k miles), naked bike, in the mean time. T...

Is the Honda VFR a whole different beast from the Magna?

Long story short, I had an accident on my Magna... Old man ran a stop sign. Chances are that it will be totaled. Here's the sucky part I only had my 96 Magna for a week and a couple of days before the accident. Anyway, since the bike will more than likely be totaled I was looking into getting anothe...

Well, He test rode my friends 07 CBR600RR and was excited by it... so we proceeded to check out the VFR. While the VFR is a nice bike and my friend like it, it was not worth what the seller was asking for, so we walked. Anyway about 3 hours after we got back I get a text from my friend saying that h...

Thanks for the input guys, I have two other friends that do ride crotch rockets. One of them is going to let him test ride it, to show him how powerful the bikes are. However we are going to check out a 91 VFR750 today... We'll see what happens after his test ride (which will take place in a few min...

Hi guys, My friend is now trying to get a motorcycle finally, however he prefers crotch rockets. I myself was/am more into cruisers, until recently, were I may be getting a VFR800 if my insurance totals out my 96 Magna. Anyway, I've been trying to get him to look at Ninja 500 & 650R's, Suzuki GS500'...

Craigslist...better States to look in for a used bike?

Things aren't looking all that great for my current bike. It has trouble starting and I'm starting to feel less and less inclined to put more money into it to get it running (may need a stator & rectifier/regulator). Anyway, I'm thinking if I can't get this bike running again, I may be looking for a...

How do you decide Cruiser or Standard.

I was forced to quit riding early last year because my bike ended up having a BHG. Anyhow, I'm going to repair the headgasket to hopefully get me through this upcoming riding season. If it matters my current bike is a cruiser 1983 Honda Shadow 750 (claimed 66bhp, probably less with new SAE standards...
