    It's getting colder here in MI and I'm looking to continue riding until the ground starts to slick. That said, any opinions on heated grips vs. heated gloves? Which is the better investment for colder weather riding?
  3. General Motorcycle Discussion
    I have been riding for a few weeks now (just hit 900 miles) and I have noticed that in any area that I have encountered other riders people have seemed very friendly and helpful. In shops conversations are struck up and cordial. On the road almost everyone gives the two finger wave or head...

    Im looking at getting into riding and know someone who is selling a 2002 harley sportster 883 (~18000 miles).

    So, I’m 21 and my father recently passed away. I inherited his Kawasaki zx12r made in 2000.

    I am in need of help from just about anyone at this point. I bought a 1980 Suzuki gs450 not too long ago knowing it didn't have spark and the previous owner said its possible that there is a short somewhere in the electrical. I'm wondering if anyone has any knowledge or knows something that I...

    Hey everyone! I just bought an electric bike (Zero S) and rode on the freeway here in NorCal for the first time. I had a Ninja 250 back in 2013 for a couple months, but I never took it on the freeway, so this was my first time. I don’t have a windshield, and the strength of the wind (not...

    What's up guys, *Some history on the bike: So I was given a 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 mean streak that's been sitting for about 5 years. According to the guy, it ran before it sat. So far I've done an oil change, new battery, spark plugs. So I just put the starter in my Kawasaki Vulcan and...

    My boyfriend is just about to buy his first bike and I want to get him some good quality gear (that won’t break the bank!) He already bought a helmet but that’s it. He doesn’t want to wear a thick jacket since it’s rather hot where we live, I still want him protected though. So any...

    Used 2007 Kawasaki Vulcan 500 ltd, worked fine for 2 weeks then stalled and wouldn't start again. When I start the bike it turns over once or twice then makes a buzzing noise (sounds like a game show buzzer) that seems to be coming from the regulator. I jumped the battery and it worked for...
