Crash Course: How To Safely Fall Off A Motorcycle
I am thinking about going to college at the University of Rochester. I live here in California which already has enough problems, but I was wondering how traffic conditions are in New York for riding if I do happen to get a bike freshman year. Would you recommend it over the GS500f and how is the ride when you use the freeway/highway?January 13, 2010 at 2:42 am in reply to: Hi from California – Future rider in need of assistance!! #23993
What would you guys recommend for me?: a 2009-2010 ninja 250 vs. 2010 KLX 250 SF vs. 2006 to Present Suzuki GS 500f vs. Suzuki Gladius
Which would be the most comfortable?
Would they last long?
Which would be worth saving the money for ?
Best on the Highway/freeway?
Good for long trips as a college student?
Safe? : In terms of Control
Is it Hot?(Looks)
Ninja 250 Sf

It is just that I cannot pour money into a used or brand new sports bike. I think that If I could convince my dad to assist me in this project during Christmas, he probably might go along with it. I would also seek for any assistance in assembling the bike if I built it straight from parts. I may lack experience, but it is too exciting and it looks like a fun thing to do on my freetime. Also, do you think I could be charged a fee for asking somebody at a shop to help me assmble a bike from parts. Is it relatively cheaperr than buying a salvaged or brand new or used motorcycle?November 16, 2009 at 5:56 am in reply to: Hi from California – Future rider in need of assistance!! #23345
Sorry to digress from the topic here, but I had just saw this video on youtube about this gsxr being assembled from parts. I was wondering if it were possible to assemble an older ninja 250 from individual parts assembled or repairing one with a salvage title.
Also, if the bike has major cosmetic damage would it be better/cheaper to repair the salvage title bike, buy a new bike, or assemble one from scratch if I was able to find the parts for low cost. After seeing this video, I would like to start a small project building a motorcycle although I have virtually no experience on doing this. This project is possible, and I was wondering if you guys could give me tips on putting a sports bike together like the one in this video. I would definitely ask for any availible outside help because my dad and uncle only have experience in automobiles instead of bikes.
Thanks.September 14, 2009 at 1:52 am in reply to: Hi from California – Future rider in need of assistance!! #22333
Why me? My senior year of high school has now begun and I haven’t even made a title for my report (did not start it yet). I’m trying to find time to start researching, but it looks like all of this college preparation is getting in my way. It looks like i’m screwed again.August 18, 2009 at 5:45 am in reply to: Hi from California – Future rider in need of assistance!! #21750
I think I found that book at Barnes and Nobles about 2 days ago, and skimming through it I fund that most of it talked about safety techniques. There was a bit more content to read, but I didn’t really consider it woth the purchase. Anyway, I am going to prepare the report now all I just need is some statistics and possibly some testimonies from motrocyclist. I found 3 riders that I know, but I was hoping maybe you guys could provide your own so I could include them into my litlle project.August 10, 2009 at 5:06 am in reply to: Hi from California – Future rider in need of assistance!! #21434
Yes, I think some statistics might aide in my report. I just hope my parents won’t scrutinize the entire project to look for any flaws. If they do find any major problems, I’m screwed.August 5, 2009 at 8:30 am in reply to: Hi from California – Future rider in need of assistance!! #21251
Thanks. Also , my parents use AAA as their vehicle insurance provider and I found out that they pay around 5K a year for insurance. I went to AAA to get an insurance quote for a young new rider and confused myself a bit messing around with it. Besides that, are there any more perks?
