  1. First Bike / New Rider
    So I've recently become interested in a 2001 Honda SABRE. From what I can see this is a 1100cc bike. This will be my first bike. I have a couple questions reguarding this. First, does an 1100cc cruiser make much of a difference for a new rider? I'm 6'4" 250lbs. From what I've seen it shouldn't...
  2. First Bike / New Rider
    So I have a friend who is selling his 1980 Kawasaki CSR, It's got 19391 miles on it, and is in pretty good shape. From what I can tell he takes good care of it, with one of the only problems being that the left blinker doesn't work, which he said he'll fix before selling. The Kelley Blue Book...
  3. First Bike / New Rider
    Hi all- here's the background info... My girlfriend bought a new cheap little 50cc Chinese scooter a year and a half ago. I never really paid riding much thought in the past, but we both have really come to enjoy driving around town and have used the hell out of it. We both feel it's time to...
  4. Sport Bike As First Bike
    Hey guys, I have wanted to get involved in biking for a while, but it looks like this summer may be my first real opportunity because I will actually have a little extra money. My question is this:Is it legitimate to want to get a decent cruiser/standard style bike from the 80's (sucha as a...

  8. First Bike / New Rider
    I am looking at getting a "new" bike and this is my first. I found one at a used car dealer. The bike was a 2008 overstock and has zero miles. It is a Wildfire Cruiser 250cc. Has anyone ever heard of these and any known issues?

    I haven’t been able to find a web site for reliable reviews. Can you please recommend a motorcycle jacket that has great safety features? I have a road bike and prefer something without all the big logo’s and lettering.
  10. First Bike / New Rider
    Hello all, Good to be here. I've read DevRev's replies to the "newbie bike advice" post and it boosted my trust in posting on this forum and asking for your advice. I'm 28, 190 pounds (90 kilos), 6'1", I grew up as a inline skating kid, wasn't much of a bicycle guy, a few months ago I started...
  11. First Bike / New Rider
    So I realize that this question has pretty much been beaten to death but I haven't really found advice for my situation.. :confused: Everything I've read has told me to get a 500 ninja as a newb rider (which I am) but I don't want a sport bike.. I get that a Kawasaki Ninja is great for a...

  16. First Bike / New Rider
    Hello, I have been riding a Buell Blast since August of '08. I am ready to buy my first "keeper". To make a long story short, I want to get a cruiser so that I can comfortably take my wife on long rides. I have rented the HD Heritage Classic. I like the look of the bike and how it handles...
