A few bikes ago I came out of a little store to find the store owner tooling around the parking lot with his 6 year old in back and his toddler on the tank. Nice man and from a different country not...

Oh, that takes me back. Many products of the time couldn't even get the point across as well as that murder of English. I hate it when the exhaust box explodes.

I don't agree with the "answer" to 8. New asphalt can be quite slick in my area as naptha leaches out. I learned to do end swaps in cars on new asphalt. I avoid it on a bike or car as you also pick...

Another good dealer is Honda of Winter Haven, maybe an hour or so away? Most dealers would rather consign your trade than buy it outright, that way they don't have to wait on profit. And you don't...

Chrome is what I am using, maybe not the best, but far ahead of IE. Think I'll go ride my cbr instead of looking at adds for junk I don't want.

This must be an IE issue. I'm using a different browser because of, well, you know. This post was the first time I've seen the black bar and it doesn't repeat. Spamming would be a capital offense...

Well, I have been avoiding this but now I'll just say it. Geico covers my CBR well for $103 a year. They apologized for charging so much as the CBR designation runs it up a tad. Last year Progressive...

The wave in the 60's and 70's it was the power sign, left fist raised to shoulder height. Somehow over the years it has become the left open hand palm forward just outboard of the left knee. I missed...

I have one on my CBR, as a joke. The best road demon/gremlin repellant is a wing with Honda written under it.

Been awhile, but I lost my license twice due to points on MCs. The only one I didn't deserve was for blowing my horn in a tunnel. Florida just doubled all fines and they were high before. The cool...

Wanna see a nice nekkid bike? Check out the CB-1. I still lust after one even with all those carbs and more than 20 year old gaskets and hoses. Pretty much the same dimensons as the 250, but a good...

I-95 in Broward County. If I still lived there I wouldn't own a motorcycle. Got tired of cars going 90 on a flat in the breakdown lane. I fear for your safety.

I found the same stuff on the ledge of the fairing under the shifter. No odor, and black filthy dirty gummy tar. Cleaned it off, put a paper towel over the area and found no more. I am convinced it...

Google Deals Gap Goldwing, the video from a sport bike is amazing. The Goldwing never crosses the yellow line and the sport bike is dragging pegs trying to keep up. The Tree of Shame is getting full.

I'm 6'-2" and 220 lbs. It is not to small for me. With a long reach I don't have to lean foward to grip the bars. I knew all I needed to know about fit when I sat on it at the dealer before the...

I have the same non abs black, one of the first in the state. I'm a little South of Sebring. Where is Poinciana?
