Re: Are you a leftie or a rightie

Left; Throw, kick, shoot, bowl, archery, eat, tie my shoes and write (hand only- no foot writting) Right; Bat, box and golf. I surf and skateboard goofy foot, I am s...

Re: Poll: New riders, do you consider weight of a motorcycle

I know I am late on this topic, my 1st post here actually, but for me it was such an important factor when choosing the correct bike. I have been ridding for 24 years, both enduro and street.
