there are times when i would rather see her alive than frendly. she is dead serious about this bike. she wont listen to me, she wont listen to her mom, she wont listen to MY mom, ignores my emails when i tell her about smaller bikes... for such a smart person, shes being realy stupid, and i dont wan...

i think the solution lies with the parents. the problem with her dad is lack of knoledge about the subject. the reason she isnt listening to her mother is that her mom has a tendancy to be... overbearing. so, instead of showing synth the page, ill just show the forums to her dad. *works on emails* i...

maybe i didnt make myself clear. she WANTS a gsxr. her mom and i have been trying to turn her opinion with varrying degrees of success... but her dad isnt helping at all. i did direct her to this site, she glanced through, never posted anything, and turned her head. (most likely because the wisdome ...

thanks for the info, but getting a 1000-2000 dollar used bike like a gs500-e or f sounds like a cheaper thing to do for a year or so. that way i would have more money for a better bike later. besides. at 5-6 hundred dollars for riding gear, 200 four the rider course, and 6-7 thousand for the bike it...

you had to walk up hill both ways carrying 25 gallons of milk that you got fresh from the farm on the other side of the state. oh yea, and milk cartons were gaudy monstrosities, you had to carry the milk by HAND! prolly leaked more than a 1980's subaru gas tank. ;)

650's are bad learner bikes, 650's are good learner bikes?

one fourth of the people say that 500cc and below is the way to go for the learning curve. one fourth say that 650cc is the bare minimum and that you should hop on something like a 700cc to start off with (if i see you on the street, i dont know you, and your probably not in this forum anyway) one f...

a question of compatability

in theory, if a gel seat for a 2004 sv650 works on a 2005 model, would the 2004 or five seat work on the new 2006 model? people do this with cars all the time, but bikes seem a little more... exclusive toward their parts, and there is literaly NO market for 2006 accessories (probably wont be till 20...

lmao i agree about the squidly bike. the reason i was looking at frame sliders was because i WANTED to get a new bike for my first one, and while i was learning have a way to protect it... but i think that getting a used or trade in is a better bet. if i keep the used for a bit, ill have enough to b...
