    New to the forum from Salem, OR. I ride a 2005 CBR 600rr. This is my sixth bike and I am really enjoying it. It doesn't beat the old carbureted 1994 900rr but it sure is fun. Poor gas mileage for sure. I like to make GoPro videos of my rides. The latest is a solo beach ride. Used other...

  11. Is Kelly Blue Book (KBB) good for price checking?

    Sport Bike As First Bike
    I've been looking around for a sport bike in hopes of purchasing one. (No need for chewing my ear on how beginners don't need a sport bike, unless you feel obliged.) What I've noticed, is that it seems that compared to the KBB retail price everything on ebay, craigslist, and other used...

    I'm taking my Rider's Edge class next month, and I'm going to be needing a helmet. I would like a full-face, just because they look good with sport bikes :icon_cool:, but I'm not sure what brand to get. What brand would you recommend, preferably not the most expensive but good quality? I'd also...
