I would have given it an Awesome if not for the prohibitive price tag.

Re: This Week: 2015 Yamaha YZF-R3 - Vote Now

I also think it's the best looking 300 yet. Very nicely proportioned and cool paint. I'm so happy to see that motorcycle manufactures have wised up these last few years and are offering smaller displacement bikes that look good. Hopefully, more people will consider riding if we can lure them in with...

Re: This Week: 2014 Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS - Vote Now

Worst name ever for a bike! The name just adds to the dork factor. Who exactly buys these scooters? The thing costs a fortune! I always think of a scooter as a little affordable inexpensive vehicle. Something like "motorcycle lite". Now we have luxury scooters. That's like expensive hot dogs. What'...

Re: CB599

I had a 2006 Honda 599.
Tuned for street riding. Very manageable power. The fit and finish is top notch.
I have nothing bad to say about it.
I sold mine because it was too much bike for my little commuting around the city.
But I still miss mine.

Re: This Week: 2015 Honda CBR300R - Vote Today

Finally Honda is offering bikes that people want. This 300 and their new 500s are probably going to sell well. I've been worried about Honda for a while. Who the heck at Honda is deciding to offer bikes like the Fury, CTX700 or the worst yet NM4. This fun little 300 has renewed my warm fuzzy feeling...

Riding has awakened me to an unsettling trend

I'm wondering if any one else has noticed the smell of rx much more frequently wafting out of cars.
When I'm riding, I can smell everything.
And this smell seems to be on the rise.
Are more people actually driving around while getting high?
I find this very disturbing.

Re: The wave

I wave to everyone, every time. This is why. Learning to ride a motorcycle has taught me a lot about myself. I started riding about 7 years ago, wanting to fulfill a childhood dream. I was scared and didn't have much positive encouragement from family and friends. Riding taught me that I'm braver th...

Re: Trade a Buell Blast for a Suzuki Katana?

The Katana is a heavy and awkward bike, especially compared to the Blast.
Did you test ride it?

Re: I need helpful advice, not post-facto criticism, please

First of all. thank you for your service.

Pay whatever you need to get the thing delivered.
Don't ride it home, it's not worth it. You'll be in way over your head.
Park it in the garage.
Get a small cheap bike to learn on.
Best of luck.
