I am, without a doubt, a fair-weather rider. I enjoy riding when it's nice out. I don't enjoy riding when the weather's cr@p. Would rather take the van in bad weather. Call it self-preservation....or fair-weather riding. That's ME!

Peace~

I also started riding when I was 10--a Yamaha Enduro 100. Rode that and my brother's 250 until I was 18. My next bike was a Suzuki Intruder 800. Now I have a '02 Dyna Wide Glide. My son is 9, and he has a Yamaha TTR90. I hope he has as much fun as I have. :)

I started on the street nearly 50 years ago on a Whizzer motorbike and a Harley Hummer 125cc. Bet most of you guys never heard of either bike. XS I'd like to see a picture of that Harley. Was looking at a '52 Harley the other day while my bf's bike was being worked on. Not for a long trek.... linz

Lemon pledge does wonders. Works just like rainex- doesn't discolor platic, cheap and has the added bonus of giving your desk or coffee table that envied luster. Get THAT out of your bike polish! :laughing: I haven't used pledge. Cool. Cycle Care products are good though, and the Windshield, Paint,...

Hmm.... I'm a family doctor who pulls a lot of ER shifts, a single mom with a great 9 y/o son who rides a Yamaha TT-R90--his first dirtbike :) I hike and camp and skydive in my free time. I have a frisbee dog and two worthless but cute pups....and a cat who's ALL THAT!

I'm a mom too. My son is 8, and he got a Yamaha TTR-90 this summer. I ride a '92 Dyna Wide Glide. I have some misgivings about riding, but I also skydive and I have more misgivings about that :? I continue to do both, though skydiving definitely takes a back seat to other things....like work and bei...

the vast majority of the local riders are mid life crisis harley riders usually wearing no gear or helmet at all. We also have the requisite squid population. "Mid-life crisis" harley riders?

The other day I pulled up to a stop sign and a guy pulled up on a HD next to me. Now I know he knows people I know but he doesn't know me, but I recognize him. I wave hi... he looks over sees I'm on a old Honda then looks back as if I don't exist. Wow what a jerk. I pull out behind him and get a go...

I wonder what the average height of women riders is. I've really never given the size issue much consideration, but I'm relatively tall--5'9" and have never had a problem fitting on a bike. I bet it'd be a bit more intimidating at 5'2". A guy that I ride with (and jump with--he's a kick-ass pilot) i...

Seriously nice bike(the XB9). As for concerns: my kids. Nothing else is more of an overriding factor to my former squidliness. It keeps me focused on the big picture. That's EXACTLY what I thought when I read the question. Well....my kid (singular). As far as riding....I worry about deer and dogs a...

I'm not trying to convince you, but if you want to ride naked then have at it. We all have to weigh our risks. I'm not going to bash anyone who doesn't want to wear leather in the summer time. That's an individual decision. I don't bash people who don't wear a helmet (except my bf :lol: ). I get ann...

The beauty of being a grown-up is that you can make an informed decision. People can bash all they want, but if you choose to ride in a t-shirt, then ENJOY the RIDE!!! If you want to wear your sneakers then enjoy the breeze on your toes... My $.02 linz Ok. I know I'm setting myself up for a bashing....

Coup/ Contra-coup head injuries. These injuries are the result of the brain bouncing around inside the skull. Your helmet cannot protect your brain from these kinds of injuries. Not entirely true. A good helmet has layer of foam that is designed to reduce the G forces put on your head by absorbing ...

I grew up on a pseudo dirtbike.....an early 70's (I think '72) Yamaha Eunduro 100. Haven't ridden one since about '83 or '84 or so. Now my little boy's yelling for a dirtbike. I'm thinking that I'll have to get one to ride around the farm with him. Maybe I'm too old for that, but it sure does make m...
