    I did the MSF first during which I rode a dual sport. I'm 5'5" and I barely fit on it but I owe a lot of my love of riding due to that bike I think. They might look the most bland but it was just so...

    I tried but the wife wasn't having it. I'm hoping to get her a Grom one day though. I figure that way I can get her into riding or at least improve my own skills.

    Certainly a possibility given my history. Having a sumo track nearby, I'd like to think I can get any desire to carve out of my system there. And with a cruiser, I don't have the desire in the first...

    That's fine. It's the appearance of a sportbike and stigma that comes along with it that my family doesn't care for, naked or not. I would love a CB500f but it is still a no. If it was purely left to...

    Clearly an indication right there. :( No offense given, thanks for your candor. I need to hear it from someone else.

    I have a kart/sumo track within 30 minutes of me, and so the idea was to take...

    Sportster 883 vs DRZ400sm

    Greetings all,

    I am seeking some advice. I am coming from a GSXR 600, having rode it about 20,000 miles and 2 years of twisty loving good times. I also had a track day under my belt....

    Eh, I've bought Auctmarts fairings before. Quality wise, it's nothing compared to OEM but I didn't have any fitting issues. For the money, it's not bad if you're not looking to win any beauty...

    So am I correct then that having raised forks probably decreased the effect of the tank slapper?

    I still have the standard front end. I probably didn't need to swap the front end but I did it for peace of mind after my crash.



    It does have a steering damper for which I was grateful for. As...

    I assume it's the same length, just raised. I have an 02 GSXR 600 which uses standard forks and I swapped them for 00 750 forks which are the same generation but inverted forks. Was a drop in fit.

    Yeah, a lot of things went wrong that run. I'm sure had I picked a better line, anticipated the camber change and decreasing radius, had more experience, etc, I could have made it. I was a little...

    I won't deny I fucked up, went too fast for the corner, and should have kept this shit at the track. But I wasn't trying to make a knee drag video. I scraped peg in the past, was told to...

    Thanks.

    Not too long ago, I helped my gf's brother get a 250 instead of that literbike he wanted and I'm sure I'll be sneaking in rides when it becomes my gf's bike.
