Crash Course: How To Safely Fall Off A Motorcycle
Lol The other day I’m wondering why the guy ahead of me is swerving a bit and driving way too slow for the road we were on. I go around him and sure enough . . . he was reading a map. Not glancing at it next to him, it was full out on his lap staring at it.
I’ve seen the same talk too. If you do the research you’ll find alot more arguements, against bigger is better, than for. I’m with you on the cruiser thing. I’ve been checking out bikes like the honda rebel, and V-star 250 (formerly the vigaro). Both have a cruiser styling and capable of doing 75 to 80 but past that from what I’ve read and seen is kinda pushing it.
I emailed a dealership by me for a quote, the guy I was dealing with even said the rebel would easily do 80 for most riders and is a great choice for first bike to commute with. Even on the least reputable highway in jersey!
Yeah I took my written test and I “tried on” a couple 250’s to celebrate. They felt like toys when I was on them lol.
The speed thing was a secondary concern. I want something I could commute to work on, and while I don’t generally drive too fast it’s a bit comforting to know that there’s a little more to squeeze out in a sticky situation. Even for a “drop back” kinda driver like I am there’s always those moments where you just need to pull around someone who looks like they’re about to do something stupid.
Thanks for the reply :o) Can’t wait the first open safety course I could register for actually starts on my birthday (aug 4th) not a bad way to ring in 26 eh?
You can get a few quotes. i know for jersey I’ve gotten quotes for around $500 a year on a new financed honda rebel. and that’s with $500 collision and comprehensive deductibles. My dad when he insured his bike ended up paying 100 for the year on a used bike for liability only.
