    Yea I’d have to agree but i’d probably lean very heavily towards the 500. In the past my recommendation was always the age old, but oh so very good Suzuki S-40. But the Honda 500 is almost identical...

    I do think once I’ve notice my ride is off I immediately start overthinking. I know once I start overthinking I tighten up my body posture. That would in part explain my increased tendencies of SR’s...

    That's a good point Jeff. I usually ride mornings and it's possible I have drank enough water. I know the MotoGP guys drink gallons of water so there certainly merit here.

    Yea that's looks like fun as well! The club (in Anza) is relatively close. That's getting out near Palm Springs. 3 1/2 hours on a good day. 6 on a bad day :) But the class is up north is at Chancy's...

    Looks fun. They’re out in the desert somewhere since they’re talking about riding seasons and arresters. Probably anywhere from 2 to 4 hours out not withstanding 7.1 earthquakes and traffic(I don’t...

    Yes well my very closest friend (and riding friend) is a complete desert rat. He’s got the two dirt bikes with the trailer and often makes a weekend with his family. He’s also a better rider than me...

    What do you suppose

    I went out to the canyons early yesterday (4th of July) and had a really great ride. I was quick (at least for me), smooth and maintained a safe but aggressive pace all day. I felt really good...

    I think most are pretty focused on re-building right now. That and since we only get one or two days of light rain annually, re-planting is particularly difficult. It, much like the Station Fire up...

    I was out yesterday. Where it’s true in that the sight lines are better I still struggled. I struggled because it’s a bit like riding a canyon you’ve never ridden before. Nothing looks familiar and...

    We rode Mulholland, Malibu and Ventura all day last Sunday. Almost everything north of Malibu Canyon (Pepperdine area) is burned to the core almost all the way to Magu Navel Station. What struck me...

  14. My beloved riding area is all but gone

    I’m sadden by what looks to be the almost total destruction of the Malibu/Mulholland area which is my primary riding spots. My first pick to ride not only for the challenging stretches of road but...

    The rear on the Triple would skip, uncomfortably so. That became a big enough issue for me to get off my butt and get the suspension tuning process at least started. I think it'll be a "process" in...

    Suspension

    Took my Street Triple to a suspension specialist here in the Valley today. It took two or three rides for them to hone in on things and I’m not positive we’re 100% there yet. (The cost of the service...

    I’m a tad confused. I did the search you suggested and of the first five. I’ve read only one that listed the SV-650 as a wheelie machine, and even then the “gist” of the review was 1) It lift’s...

    I didn’t really “retract” it. I just gave up :) Truth is the SV-650 much like the Ninja 650, Honda CB650f, and the Honda Rebel 500 are all docile bikes. As far as you riding an SV-650 and finding it...

    Ha :)

    Naw, at least historically, the SV650 is a genuinely docile bike. I've been out on the SV-650 previous to this incarnation, probably a 2017. No one should confuse it with an R6, CBR600rr, or...
