    I have those (but the guy's version). I haven't had the opportunity to test them yet since it hasn't been cold enough. I've used the Cortech Scarabs, Alpinestars ST-1 Drystars, and Fieldsheer...

    I don't understand what you mean. That there is no waterproof jacket that will keep you completely dry, or none aside from that plastic-y material that is actually waterproof? Or something else...

    I'm too lazy to read the article, but of those pedestrians, what percent of the "traffic" are they? If 95% of the traffic are pedestrians and only 2% of the traffic are motorcyclists, then...

    Depends on your pace. I would scrape my stock SV pegs all day long and that was at a comfy pace. Now my rearsets are raised, and there's no way to scrape them without pushing it. I imagine I'd scrape...

    I wouldn't call the VFR a sportsbike, more like a sports-tourer. What year? You may get to enjoy the rectifier problem...

    Thunderstorms don't really happen where I live. At least, not without lots of rain before and after. Were I caught in an unexpected one, I'd chill under an overpass or at a gas station until it...

    I would advise against Adobe Premiere. I used that for almost two years, then gave Vegas a try. Vegas and Premier are almost identical (for the basic editing I do) with one fundamental difference;...

    You still have the instruction manual, correct? Set the camera to record in 720p.

    But if your computer is too slow to properly view 1080p, odds are you're not going to be able to edit it without...

    I upgraded from the standard to the HD. Like others have said, the sound is also much better. What I really like is that the battery is rechargeable, and lasts up to 2.5 hours as opposed to the older...

    1. It varies so much you can't really generalize. Most people sell their 250's for a bigger bike after a year, but after that it's up in the air.

    2. Only 3000 miles in a year of city streets...

    Half-tint shields are what work for me. I used to switch my shields out for a dark smoke and a clear depending on daylight or night time hours. The half-tint works equally well at 12 noon or 12...

    I'd look into Alpinestars or Rev-It. I'm a guy with small hands but I guess normal length fingers? Alpinestars and Rev-It fit me well in a small. I also have a pair of Cortech gloves that fit me...

    It's getting colder now, so I'd go with the first. That's actually the first jacket I've ever seen that comes with CE back armor (and I've seen a lot).

    I know car tires have a lifespan of 6 years. For bike tires I'd put the limit at 5 years if stored indoors. If outside I'd say 3. I've ridden on 7 year old tires that slid sideways while going in a...

    My F3 weighs almost the same as my EX500 did. The biggest factor in determining ease of control was ride height. I could flat-foot my 500, but my F3 is about an inch higher. During the first week I...
