If this passes in NY, then all 50 states will have a precident to act upon.

Call, write, email your congressmen, legislators, senators, etc.

If they want their jobs back at election time, then they need to know how we feel.

Take it from someone who went to school in a black leather trench and HD boots, you can wear anything you want and nobody will care, if you wear it naturally. If you are comfortable with it and with yourself, wear it. Don't make excuses for your gear, don't tell them that you didn't have the money ...

Anybody own willie & max saddle bags?

Hey Gang, I saw these willie and max saddle bags at a bike shop near me and they looked pretty good. Inexpensive too.

Anybody else have them? How have they held up?

What I mean by full price is that just because it's after xmas and the riding season is dead for most of the country, don't expect a good discount. In NJ I got an 06 leftover at xmas for 6700. MSRP is 7350. If it were springtime and everyone was lookin for a new scoot, I probably would not have seen...

and with the money I make from selling both bikes I can buy the Yamaha V Star 1300. From 5 days ago: the main reason I hate cruisers is cause of the forward placement of the footpegs and the heavy feel and weight of the bike... to me riding any cruiser on the road is boring And from yesterday....

We've been blessed with 40+ degree weather all month here in NJ. I went out on a christmas ride for hopefully the first of many xmas' to come. I think I've found a new holiday tradition. Funny thing is it took me 45 minutes to get to a 711 that's normally only a 5 minute ride. I took the scenic rou...

Not to beat a dead horse, but I have a jacket question.....

Since I just got my first bike 2 weeks ago, I was wondering, what kind of summer weight jackets are ya'll wearing, leather , tex, etc.

My leather is really heavy and I don't want to melt in the summer. The NY Int'l bike show in NYC is around the corner so I want to check some out.

It all depends what type of bike you want, bikes in high demand will sell at a high price any time of year, the best time is in the early spring when the dealer just got a tractor trailer load of new bikes, the dealer owner is worried cause he owes somebody some big money real soon if he don't sell...

I hear that load and clear! That fear has been replaced with anticipation of the next ride. Although I still struggle with starting on an uphill, but that will come in time.
