Judging by your size, I would get at least a 500cc cruiser. The 250cc bikes are just too small and I think you would find them uncomfortable. When you take your BRC, you'll be using 250cc bikes and the rebels are just tiny little things. At my class they had a few dual sport type bikes and all the b...

At my place, they had a phone number that you could call at 1pm on Wednesdays to see if there were any cancellations. Once I found at there was a cancellation, I drove straight to the local community college to sign up. There were at least 6 other people there doing the same thing. Be persistent and...

Well since I just joined the forums today, I'll revive this thread. I'm in Hoodbridge, Virginia :wink:

I'm a new rider, but I like to find twisty roads to practice on. I find it easy riding fast and straight, but I want to build up my skills on the corners.

Thanks! Yup the rear wheel is stock as well as the quad exhaust. The bike is completely stock from what I can tell. The only upgrades are the crash bars and the front pegs. I've already been bit by the upgrade bug and I've ordered VTX headlight components. From what I've read it is a direct swap for...

Nolan N-102

Well first I should tell you that I'm brand new to motorcycling and this is my first helmet. With that being said, I really like my Nolan helmet. At first I was not looking at purchasing a Modular helmet, but instead wanted a full face. Well after looking at the N-102 at the local shop I figured I'd...

New to Forums and Motorcycling

Hi all, I've been riding for about a month now and I'm totally in love with it. I can't believe it took me 25 years to finally get my own motorcycle! I've been on mopeds before when I was younger but the bug never bit before. I went on holiday to the Philippines for a few weeks and I got a chance to...
