Different type of bike...for a different type of ride?

I like my bike, but I never end up doing the type of riding I bought it for. I bought my Suzuki Boulevard M50 under the false impression that all the guys I know with cruisers that actually do ride all the time...would actually like to do it with me from time to time. Apparently we live on different...

Blue, just a thought since you said you think it was your front tire that jinxed you, check your tire psi. While you were pretty preoccupied with the SUV, a low tire psi might have enabled a wash out. I already added that to the list of "things to pay attention to when my body feels up to riding ag...

I looked over my bike a bit better, and I looked at the scene of my accident as well, and it makes a lot more sense to me now, though not entirely. I realized that the problem was that my front end gave out, not my rear. I believe I was turning the bars (not countersteering, because of the VERY slow...

First things first, do not finance a bike. Save up for it and then buy it. ook at something like the SV 650 or Ninja 650R or the ninja/gs 500 as a first bike. Insurance for a brand new 16 year old on a CBR 600 will be over $1,000 a year. if by over 1000 you mean SEVERAL TIMES OVER, then yes, over 1...

I have no experience with either of those. In fact I could only guess about certain things that would make you like either of them.

Instead of helping I will give you a list of other bikes that are also awesome:

Triumph Speed Triple

Suzuki Bandit 1250

Suzuki SV650 (1000)

enjoy.

Thanks for the support guys. I'm really more upset that it happened, because I remember going "oh "poo poo", this turn isn't happening right" But I (and the bikes behind me) didn't really get a good idea for why or how i went down in the exact way that i did. Also i'm upset at exactly how I landed, ...

Had a lot of fun zooming around farms and lakes and such all damn day, came home and got gas, left went to the pier, went to leave the pier and...i have no idea how...I guess we'll call it a low side. wouldn't have been a big ...

Re: dropping the bike

I have an idea... how much does your bike weigh? If you had a method of grabbing it better, would you be able to push/lift that weight? (i'm thinking using the butt and back to the bike walk it up method) I'm thinking about some sort of strap you could wear and attach maybe to the forks and like und...

cleanup?

is there anyway we can just kill this whole thread? maybe I'll start over on a BLOG, so I can stop mean things from creeping in...

and since a certain person is gone now...it wouldn't be so much of a problem.

RAT = Riders Association of Triumph. Kind of like the Triumph equivalent to HOG. A local chapter is a pack. Ours is headquartered at Mt. Holly Kawasaki/Suzuki/Triumph/KTM.
someday me and a speed triple will be all ABOUT that ;)

Great Day.

I worked all weekend, and it was "Real Purdy Like" all weekend, and I got to look at it out the window and just DIE inside from not being able to ride. Well I had today off, and I went RIDING. Had some fun around town for a bit, then took off (after calling a friend and inviting him out to lunch) to...

my advice is to keep saving, keep paying them (maybe pay more per month as well) Keep some money stocked up for when THE BAD STUFF happens (fender bender, starter goes in the car, whatever) and keep looking for a bike on THE CHEAP (do you have your license? go to an MSF course and get one, now, befo...
