Where do you draw the line

Riding is all about assuming risk. Where do you draw the line? My MSF instructor talked about this alot. There were roads he refused to ride on, like the high traffic thru town 4 lanes etc, bad weather conditions(provided you are given the choice.) He had rode for years and years. Being very green, ...

It is really frustrating. I have a terrible time finding things that fit well. I have no legs and not very big. So everything is huge. It is hard to even find cool tshirts. There is things available on the net, but sizes vary so much, you can never be sure of the fit. I have thought about starting m...

Welcome and congratulations!! Do you have someone who can go with you and look at the bike mechanically? Carburetor issues can be a headache. But your looking at the right size bigs. Take a look at the Shadow. My VLX is a great little bike and is so forgiving. :) I am 5'3" and I flat foot with no pr...
