    Hey all, I know it's been a while since I posted. But honestly, I wanted to wait until I actually passed the MSF course to get back in the community. Well folks, I made it! After listening to all the suggestions and taking my comfort level into account, I decided on a bike. The motorcycles I...
  2. First Bike / New Rider
    This is a project bike that I bought recently and I’m finding it hard to find information on it. The big thing I’m trying to find now is a replacement headlight.

    Hey y’all. So I grew up riding dirt bikes and four wheelers, biggest I ever rode was a Honda CRF450 back in the day. I messed around with a MT-07 we just got in at the shop I work at and had a blast. Wanted to see what other people who’ve owned one thought of the MT-07. I’m also open to getting...

    So I’ve decided to go get the a1 licence as I just turned 16. I’ve been looking at a few bikes, and yzf r125 and mt 125 has caught my attention. The only problem is that they are a bit pricey, so I’ll bring the CBR into consideration. I’m about 184cm tall and weigh about 75kgs. Imo the looks...

    I bought my first motorcycle last week, a Honda VFR 750 94 model. I was so happy! It was the first motorcycle I have ridden, and I felt in love right away. I'm really happy to find a community where I can reach for help if anything. As the previous owner didn't give it much time and love, I...

    I found a 1975 Yamaha 750 special for $300 on Craigslist and I thought I'd be a perfect bike to start on. They seller says it does run, but it needs a battery and a tune up. I've never even ridden a motorcycle but when I saw the add, I thought it was too good to pass up. Can anyone's give me...

    For a first time bike purchase, never having ridden before, what would be the wiser purchase? My goal is to eventually take rides in the country with my fiancé (total body weight just under 350#. Will be taking a 2-day certification course in two weeks. Here are two options. 1. Well cared...
  8. Motorcycle Repair
    I just bought a used 2010 Hyosung gt250r and soon after I've realized the starter needs to be replaced. The person I bought it off him said that he can send me the parts to do so, but I'm not sure if I'd be better off sending it to the shop than attempting to repair it myself. So my question is...

  12. First Bike / New Rider
    Long post, fair warning. Recently began riding, still clearly a novice; 50 yo, 5'11', 200 lbs, pretty athletic. Recently took the MSF course as my first ever riding experience; my nephew lives in Buffalo, NY, so I've borrowed his 2013 Triumph Speedmaster for the winter (since 5 feet of snow...
