    Public transit does not explain the EU, where bikes rule. Same with Shanghai.

    Definitely move and stretch. I try to stand up for a bit at least every 30 minutes or so. This is proactive and fends off the stiffness for quite a bit.

    Well, their picture of "millenials" doesn't jibe with the two millenials in my house. What the two millenials in my house do not have is enough money to buy much of anything, so any personal...

    My perspective is that the whole premise of this "study" is wrong. They assume that motorcycling will never be more than a fun activity, instead of being a primary form of transportation like it is...

    Yeah, here in MI, they just patched I75 by my house. The patches for the frost heaves are about 15" wide. They brought out the grinding machine so hopefully they all stay patched.

    A certain gal in Columbus and I keep sitting on the Triumphs (oh, that XCx is sooooo mine) and wondering why we haven't just pulled our respective triggers!

    After careful study, it was determined that use of hte kill switch on any bike running Hella EFI is a fast road to a misadapted idle air controller and a dead bike.

    So, while it is generally safe...

    I measured my Sherpy. 34" unloaded seat height. My 32"ish legs can reach both feet to the ground. This is called loaded sag. Static sag is probably about another 2". Basically, the bike's suspension...

    250cc Dual Sports are all that.

    I rode mine to work today! KL250G Super Sherpa. Definitely not the bike for you, it's designed for small people. However, the seat height is reported to be 32.2"...

    That is not bad at all. I don't get into trouble until I start stacking several 500+ mile days up. 300 mile days are easy-peasy and fun.

    I would totally do that!

    Second helmet is a great idea.

    I have my fancy-pants Schubert C3 for everyday wear and an old HJC IS-16 for backup, like when Schubert had to warranty my original C3 due to a paint issue.

    Hi, bar denizens....

    I watched Chips on my flight home from Germany. It was dumb and silly and completely overdone. I was not pleased with the whole steel cable thing because if anything, it...

    No, no concern at all. In automotive motorsports, helmets are valid for ten years from certification date. I personally consider the limit for a moto helmet to be 2000 hours of use. That works out to...

    Ok, this is so tempting. I haven't really attempted to do it under control, only have lifted the front a couple of times going over hills (suspension compression thing). Hmmmm. Time to Sherp!

    Yes, the new 310s are awesome, but I fear they are not really what you are looking for, either. The 310R is analogous to the Ninja 300 and the little CBR. The 310GS has only the CSC adventure bike in...

    Good point, OBX. There is a lot of variety.

    I do ride mostly pavement. I am not taking my GS that far off road, I have the Sherpa with IRC TR8s.

    I do have the Tourances on the 650. I mean the behaviour on wet pavement is not as predictable as on dry pavement.
