Did you ever get them? I have been interested in these as well. Paul's comments at newenough are usually right on. I measured my calves and they are only 15.5" so it should work in that regards. My caveat is that I have big thighs so I don't know if it will be too tight there. :frusty: I have the Ic...

Re: Buying Used CBR600

Also in the ad it says the only problem with the honda is that it pops out of gear sometimes. Is there a way to fix this or no? Depends. If it is an occasional false neutral it could be simple as adjusting the clutch. If it is a constant problem under acceleration, then it is probably a worn gear o...

Like others said, the VTR for whatever reason is a bigtime gas guzzler. Other than that, it's a great bike and can be had for pretty cheap. There used to be one in town with loud D&D pipes and it sounded awesome.

+1 on the Pilot Roads. I have them on my R1150R. It is much better than the crapola Michelin Macadams that came with the bike originally. It is not as sticky as the Pilot Sports that are on my CBR600RR but for this kind of bike(Standard or Sports Tourer), it is more than good enough. I scrape the pe...

I've got an old '96 Viffer and it is a great bike, in every way. The first time out it was pretty tame compared to what I was used to but it feels better and better the more that I ride it. I swear that it was 15 years ahead of it's time. I'll probably keep it so I have something I can tour on and ...

Before I bought my Ducati Hypermotard, I was considering the Speed Triple. However when I checked insurance, the ST was about twice the cost of the HM to insure. :shock:

I couldn't understand it. They are both similar Hooligan bikes that make you do foolish things. :lol:

Re: What do you think of the Kawasaki brand?

1972 H2 Mach IV - TWO-stroke, three cylinder, over 100hp if tuned right, horrible handling, and 26 mpg! :twisted: Those triples were some of the baddest sounding bikes ever too. 8) The sound of an unmuffled triple ring-a-ding accelerating at full throttle would make the hair stand up in the back of...

I had a 1998 VFR800FI. To me that was the perfect Interceptor. It had the great 800 engine without the VTEC and it had the gear driven cams. I had a Two Brothers high mount exhaust and the bike sounded awesome, like and Indy Car! :mrgreen: It did pretty much everything well. It was fast, handled wel...

Since I am so obsessed with keeping the tank in perfect shape, I have tankslapper on the tank, then a second look color matched bra on top of it. :roll: The bike and the tank still looks showroom new.

Hey RC did you buy a DP bike yet? If not, have you considered the Kawasaki KLX250S? It is about the weight of the XT250 but is liquid cooled. As far as the seat height goes, it's between the XT & the DRZ. The DRZ is sky high and the XT is super low. The KLX will be much better than the XT offroad an...
