  1. General Motorcycle Discussion
    Hi! Brand new to the forum. I am not even a rider but want to get a bike for three days a week commute over the mountains and into the city. Sadly, I cannot afford much. Is there anything inexpensive that you all would recommend for a brand new rider with a 1-hour commute? Thanks!

    Hello, I recently purchased an old chopper frame and have come to realize that the forks offer no suspension and I would like to swap them out.

    Four things, I'd like to communicate, towards our new riders... 1.) If possible, ride a used dirt only bike, for a year (learn to fall + fix, before you learn to ride) and/or take at least the first two levels of classes at Motorcycle Safety Foundation Home Page. 2.) Whatever bike you end up...

    I've always been enamored with cruisers. (not necessarily any particular makes or models just that cruiser style) I've rarely ridden or spent the time to learn about motorcycles but am now in a position to buy one. After checking the forums and youtube videos the consensus is that cruisers are...

    I am about to buy my first (xs750 1977 Yamaha) this Saturday. I've seen the bike run but the seller says it needs a battery and a tune up. I just talked to a buddy and realized I don't want to pay a few hundred for a tune up if I don't have too. What all would a shop do to this bike and how much...

    I'm considering a Yamaha V 250 as my first bike, with plans down the line for a 650 cruiser after I've gained experience and improved my skill. Does anyone know if the V 250 has enough oomph to ride on the highway? I'm in NYC, and highway traffic moves anywhere from stop-n-go to 75.
