Re: Just wondering--Do you listen to music while you ride?

I use the Sena SMH-10. Love the bluetooth and the quick ability to pair with another rider when cruising through DC Metro area traffic.

Street legal pit bike? Nice metro hopper? Gymkhana monster? I'd buy it. Cool in my book!

Re: Ducati encouraging MSF classes

Depends if your classes are subsidized by your state. The market price is about $350 in the DC metro area, but Virginia pays $200 per student from M endorsement fees. Private sites here still charge the full $350 since they are not eligible for subsidies.

Re: This week: 2013 Benelli BN600: Vote Today

Looks like a Hyosung Comet/Yamaha FZ8 hybrid. If it was from Hyosung I'd actually give it a decent rating as they are definitely improving as a company. However, this hits a fail until proven awesome in my book. Benelli even before becoming chinese was starting to suck the big 4 1 1

Re: I've just about decided on a bike...but what about gear?

If you believe the guys that race the 250s in WERA, there is a difference in cornering. It's much easier to corner on a 250 than their 600 and 1000 cc sportbikes :lol: Given how fast those guys go and my own experience on the ninja 250 you won't have problems passing at 80 mph. Most guys that talk d...

Out of curiosity- are you giving that ranking to all sport bikes unless they have a standard seating position (kawasaki 650r, 300r)?

Re: This week: 2013 Hyosung GT650R: Vote Today

What? We only get side photos? With the death of the SV and the increasing quality of Hyosung I'm finding less and less to hate about the company and this bike. We have 2008 Hyosung GT 250's in our training program and have had 650's show up for track days for years. While the suspension is underwhe...
