Heya SV. sorry to hear bout the 'tona.

Really is unreasonable for a new bike to act that way.

Kinda makes me wanna stay away from the triumph line. Even if they do make me drool like sally struthers at the wonka chocolate factory.

I've never had a shield. That'll beat you to death in fairly short order if you're doing anything on a highway. I don't have a shield for money reasons though....Not because I don't like how they look or am at all concerned about stability issues with em. If you do ever get a windshield on your bik...

I own an 05 c50. They're heavy. The tank is wide. (too wide in my opinion.) The stock IRC's on mine turned to cupped pudding. and the ends of my bars hit my thighs when I make a tight turn and have something in the pockets of my pants. Otherwise they are good bikes. I aint sure I would want it to be...

I don't need "government clearance" to believe that starting an armed conflict with a foreign nation that posed no immediate threat to the US was not a proper use of the US military. Based upon what?

05 C50 here. It's a good bike. Not too powerful. Pretty comfy. I think due to the injection mine is a touch twitchy throttle wise. Nothing that can't be worked around. But it will sometimes give a little lurch if you're rolling on from zero throttle. It starts easy. It looks good. I like the way it ...
