  1. Ninja 300 on the highway?

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    So as some of you may know, I was unable to get the CB500F I am so in love with due to not having enough credit history. I've been scrounging around craigslist lately, and a certain white Ninja 300 caught my eye. However, a lot of my riding will be commuting to and from work (but let's be real...

    I have about a 20 minute highway ride to my high school which is in a small town (about 1200 people so I won't ever be in traffic) and I don't know what would be a better bike to ride to and from school daily.

  5. First Time on the Highway

    First Bike / New Rider
    At one point, as we turned back from our 30 mile jaunt into the wilds of Westchester County, I just screamed for joy into my helmet and sang born-to-be-wild into my helmet. Despite the fear and the fury of dumping the bike last weekend, I was out and living and riding, 70 mile per hour concrete...
