  1. Advice with Insurance

    Sportsbike Forum
    So currently I ride a 2008 ninja 250r. I love it and ride every day however I'm looking to buy something with more power. I've ridden a few of my friends bikes like the cbr 600 and a r6.

  4. 600cc okay if not "sport" bike?

    First Bike / New Rider
    I fully understand not getting a 600cc+ sportbike for my first bike. However, I'm curious if there is a distinction between sportbike and a non-sport bike (cruiser, etc). For instance, I've found a lot of 1984-1986 Honda Nighthawks for good prices on craigslist but those are 600-700cc bikes...

  8. Not a sport bike or a cruiser

    First Bike / New Rider
    So I took the MSF course and I'm in the market for a used bike. I'm not a sport bike guy nor am I a cruiser guy so I'm looking for something a bit different. I was thinking of a dual sport or motard but I'm not really sure what the difference is. I was wondering if someone could give me some...
  9. Complete noob - GSXR 750?

    First Bike / New Rider
    I'm very much new to the motorcycle scene. I've been considering it for a while, especially recently, but have yet to ride, obtain a motorcycle license, or purchase one. I recently saw an ad for a 2003 Suzuki GSXR 750 sport bike, and I'm more tempted than ever. What with it being a private...
