Re: This Week: 2014 Norton Commando 961SF - Vote Now

Well then, I better go with my wife's advise above and vote Awesome...lol. Really great bike, loads of power from a parallel-twin (80) and oozing good style to boot! Like everyone, I think the price is just darn too high for it, but it's uber-exclusive (right now) so I'm sure the prices will come d...

Re: The color of my new Scout

Now for the rest of the story. I got a call from the dealer that my bike was in. I ran out to the dealer to finish up but the sales manager would only give me $2200 for my pristine 2009 Buell 1125CR. Kelly blue Book says $3800 wholesale $5500 retail. The guy wouldn't even talk about it. So I walked...

Re: This Week: 2014 Norton Commando 961SF - Vote Now

Nice bike but like others have said - there is no way that it justifies the price given the performance available. I am not sure if this is the limited edition "Dominator" model but if it is apparently they are ALL sold out so someone out there thinks it is worth the money....

Way to go Mikey! Love that bike, even the stock version, but this is outstanding ( minus the fairing). Give me a shout tonight (cell). I'm even in Texas!

Re: This Week: 2015 Can-Am Spyder F3S - Vote Now

I'm going to take a different stance than last time and give it props for being an improvement on the original. Just like when atvs first came out, people hated them because they were not motorcycles, but really I need to ride one a judge it for what it is. If I could afford to do it I would buy my ...

Re: High_Sides Trips and Pics

The slow realization of the additional time I spent in Moab was starting to take hold, and I had to face this reality when I considered my time remaining. Should I take another southern swing down to visit the Canyons of the Ancients and cut some of the mountain passes out as a result? Not this time...

Re: High_Sides Trips and Pics

Now it's really been about 15 months since I completed this trip and admittedly the details are becoming a little hazy as time passes on. This is the very reason that I started this "blog" back in 2006 in order to help me remember all of the great roads, and the ups and downs of each trip. There ha...

Re: The Blog of Blues

My first time back here in a while and now Blues is looking at getting a new bike! Hopefully you can get a demo on a V-Strom before buying it. They are great bikes and I have never heard anyone say anything bad about them, but it's always nice to try before you buy - especially when it is so radical...

Re: Discuss: Have you (or would you) buy a full leather suit

I used to have the full racing jammies and they were great for back then, and matched the rest of the persona that I had going on way back when. They are safe,and offer a lot of protection and for the track it is the only way to go. But our track is gone :( and I cannot believe how much better my tw...
