How You Can Improve Your Comfort While Riding
hey all- KNOX is awesome and expensive but there are a few deals left at oncycle.com and I can say they are decent to deal with- be safe all!
closest Ive seen that you can ride and upkeep and learn on and and and
i am now on a bonnie as well- I gotta say I thought, oh maybe a larger bike next- but then with gas and the fact that Ive never needed to go faster than the 865 cc’s Ill likely aim for a 500cc next to save even more gas and also there as such peppy bikes out thee it should be fun-
what i did was take advantage of the numerous awesome reviews on the site- then read all the posts, i imagine that combined with your own thoughts will decide it for you and welcome- also after doing that buy a t-shirt and support what Ben is providing here-
I agree, those tight turns and also combining turns with brake, gear use!
oh…yes and the CARS!!!!!
I read on another forum something that seems to be prevelant in most cases like this one:
the person said “you already know what you are going to do, you are looking for validation, someone to say do it- so just do it”
and I hate to say it but when you havent ridden- which was me just 3 months ago- you are dangerous, because you think you know alot, or at least you reason alot- and then you want it to be- its not- 1300 is just going to end up as fun as driving bigfoot when you should b enjoying a tacoma truck-
maybe we will ALL be wrong and youll somehow make it to the point where you are comfortable, but youd be there soo sooo much faster on a smaller bike and then build the needed foundation- I knew a guy who was the same, took the safety course and now is afraid to even ride, he is taking it to parking lots slowly trying to get used to it- oh and the it is a 1200 haaa
you are right everyone should indeed know and congrats!!!
I know these are beautiful bikes- I now have one- there is a thread if you read through and it has nobbies which dont handle well on the road by most accounts- and finally its nearly 500 pounds!
I had great luck with competition accesories as well
I wear a few types, none of them keep air out- goggles do- I wear oakleys under the helmet and also smiths and von zipper- I prefer the plastic wrap around styles like smith and vonzipper to the metal oakleyys for keeping bugs out if the shield is up
how much were they asking?
thanks I agree- no need to get worked up but I think once I wrote that I felt better- plus its easy to act like this is a safe thing to do- good to check that once in awhile, its a HUGE risk and I know many disagree but to be honest to myself (I love it Im soooo hooked) but it is NOT SAFER to me than drivin g a car I dont care, if I had a car I would have bumped her thats it, on the bike I was inches from death-
anyway haaa theres some more therapy funny I had about 4 seconds time in all that and I couldnt do any thinking just react and so I let off the throttle sat up, steered over and pressed the brakes slowly no way to downshift as it would have required moving, thinking etc haa
I loved the vulcan- I am 6-1- there is a guy here who had the s40 and Id imagine that too would be nice for you- I think in a cruiser with these displacements you arre fine with a 500 and would be happy now and in a year-
hey there- I am from STL also- south county- living in vermont now- anyways welcome and congrats ride well!May 31, 2008 at 7:50 pm in reply to: My own research bike list (for beginner bikes)…ONGOING #6856
