Re: 2015 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R ABS 30th - Coolness Factor =

The 14R is a completely awesome machine. Personally I like it best in Kawi metallic green......but this is cool. I remember when the 900 Ninja appeared , I was in high school and wanted one desperately , along with the 1000 Interceptor (only ONE year of those!) . The 900 WAS revolutionary for KAWASA...

I like it......its modern yet retro in its styling. Its a mid size (these days) vtwin but makes 100 hp ....kudos......its not really heavy and its priced reasonably. I like the direction they are going ......hopefully this will lead to more interesting models , maybe even NON cruiser bikes.......wel...

Re: This Week: 2015 Polaris Slingshot SL - Vote Today

Well , a lot of good points. Is it a motorcycle? NO But as pointed out , how exactly DO you classify a motorcycle? Is a Spyder one? I dont think it has to do with how many wheels it has as much as it has to do with how its ridden and set up. On motorcycles , you sit ON them for the most part and you...

Re: This Week: 2014 Ural Gear Up - Vote Today

Well.....Interesting they are..... Basically a 1930's BMW 750 with sidecar. Updates are nice but almost odd on such a rudimentary piece. They are definitely cool to some degree but , wow.....look at some peices and parts and it looks pretty ......lets say ....rough. I would NEVER consider spending o...

Re: 2014 Honda NM4 Vultus - Coolness Factor = 44.4%

I voted Cool......this was tough . I like this particular styling try better than other similar stuff like the DN01 etc. This is basically like a large moped which is not all bad. It is too heavy but would probably be VERY practical with super high mileage and tons of comfort and room for stuff pote...

Voted cool. Like Victory in general for being different than Harley to some degree while offering more performance overall and better pricing.

Like most though, I wish they would make other types of bikes.......

Re: 08 CBR 1K

08 CBR1000RR was a real move forward for Honda and the liter bike class. That bike is STILL , in its updated form , arguably the best liter sport bike out there. It doesnt have the BMW's top end power , the R1's cross plane crank, the Kawi's electronics or the Gixxers heritage.....but it is supremel...

MR. Max , the maximum Musclebike.....

Well I got an excellent opportunity to ride a 2014 Yamaha Star V-Max. I rode this bike directly after climbing off of a 2013 Ducati Diavel Carbon (with Termignoni pipes and program). As you may have read in my review of the Diavel , I really liked the bike and it was tremendously quick. It had a fee...

Re: 2015 Yamaha SR400 - Coolness Factor = 80.5%

Definitely cool......the SR's were/are great bikes. I do agree though that a bit of updating sure would be nice though while still keeping it simple. Rear disc brake and a bit of styling help. Maybe they will offer a cafe version if it does well.....that would be nice.

jstark..... I think you are correct for the most part. I have heard the Multistradas are really nice overall bikes , though some "Ducatisti" refer to them as the ANTI Ducati because they actually are pretty well rounded . Unfortunately , most of their models are less comfy for me these days......I L...

Really cool seeing the Ural bikes. Very unique and rugged....though with modern peices like fuel injection and disc brakes (Brembos!)

Runnin' with the Devil....Ducati Diavel

Well I was fortunate enough to get a demo ride on a '14 Diavel Carbon :devil: with Termignoni/tune last week. I am considering a few bikes and this one really intrigued me. First, its a Ducati. I have long been an admirer of this hallowed mark and have ridden several over the years. Most have been c...

Re: Helmet laws - for or against

I feel that you should have the right to choose .....BUT .......that is as long as it doesn't affect ME . You choose not to wear one , you pay more for insurance etc. The cost shouldn't be spread out to all of us. This is difficult to enforce but I am sure we could find a way. If you want to risk it...
