  3. First Bike / New Rider
    I'm in love, but my experience with two wheels is mostly limited to cycling. Of course, that does mean I'm used to being invisible on the road. That's something, right? I posted here a few years back looking for help choosing a starter bike. As tends to happen, life went a different direction...

  10. Sport Bike As First Bike
    I need a couple opinions.. I'm lookin to get a first bike and I've been leaning towards a sport model..

  15. First Bike / New Rider
    I'm about to buy my first bike and I went to sit of a few today. I could tell differences in the comfort of the seats and how heavy the bike was. I also noticed the differences on where the handle bars were. I obviously can't put my feet on the pegs or else I'll fall over. What else should I...
