Crash Course: How To Safely Fall Off A Motorcycle
With your riding mix, any 250cc twin will work fine. Cruisers (Rebel, V-Star/Virago 250), standard (Nighthawk), or sport (Ninja 250). The Ninja is really more of a sport/standard, it has a fairly upright riding position. IMHO, I’d pick the Ninja if I were you. In addition to being a great city bike, it’s also the most freeway capable out of the ones I mentioned.
One of the beauties of motorcycles is their simplicity…We’ll see if this catches-on. It is odd to see something like that on that sort of bike. I don’t even think the big sport-touring rigs (ST1300’s, FJR’s, etc.) have systems like that.
I was a cruiser guy, but now I’m more interested in sport/standards, like the Ninja 500R or 650R. That 650 looks like a really sweet bike! It seems to me that you get more for your money (disc brakes front & rear, fuel injection, etc.) with a bike like a Ninja 650, than you do with an entry-level cruiser. My ultimate goal is to get one of the big sport-tourer mounts one day. My plan goes in this order:
1. Start with a Ninja 500R or 650R
2. Move to the Honda Interceptor (what a sweet bike!!!)
3. Then maybe a Concours, FJR1300, or ST1300
4. Then, if the wife will ride with me, Goldwing all the way!
Wow…lots of Texas folk on here!
I’m in Bedford right now, probably will be moving to NW Tarrant county soon. Which is a shame, b/c a MSF course is literally right down the street from me!
Thanks Scotty, what area in TX? I’m in DFW
