I’ll just tell you upfront, long story short: I’ve been given a new opportunity to be gifted a new motorcycle, virtually any bike new or used under 9k, whatever I want. I need your help to find that bike.
...have there been a disproportionate number of #twowheelsbad articles on the FP?
I’m not complaining; on the contrary kudos to the Lanesplitter team et all for churning out so many articles. I’m just not as much of a bike guy, so I tend not to read those articles.
Motorcycle culture must look pretty funny from an outsider. You have your douchebag sportbike squids riding in groups of 100 smashing side mirrors off cars. Grease-bag wannabe hell’s angels dressed like…. pirates I guess? And don’t forget the dorky BMW riders with $20k “Adventure Bikes”, geared up in 5 grand worth of…
This is a car site. We’re car enthusiasts, and we like cars. Four wheels good and all that. Personally, I like motorcycles too. Not everyone agrees, and that’s OK. As I’m enjoying my last few days of riding through an unusually warm streak before putting the bike away for another New England winter, I’ve been…
Regardless whether you think a running engine will ignite fumes, at least pay attention so you dump fuel all over the ground. This was a 2008 Road Glide, so it only has a five gallon tank. Pay attention.
So I’ve recently passed the one-year mark of being the owner of my Kawasaki Ninja 400R. It is my first bike and a pretty good one for a beginner. It’s quick but not too quick and comfortable to ride. However it is a sport tourer and as a result is a bit heavy and the almost-upright seating position makes it…

I thought I would get this out of the way before the imgur crowd wakes up.
They moved the car yesterday, but I didn’t realize until this morning that it was only moved to a proper, metered spot.
One month ago today, we visited Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis, SD.
I want a simple 250cc Honda or Kawasaki to use around town. This is why I can’t have one. Bandit is sad.
I took these photos, hoping to put together some sort of clever, “Oh shit, I went to the wrong one” post, but just can’t put it together.
This proves what I have known all along. I will drink anywhere.
Welcome to part two of That Time We Experienced Reliability Issues With American Motorcycles. You knew there wouldn’t be just one, right?
Raise your hand if this is a surprise to anyone.
Usually when I go somewhere, I usually don’t rely on turn-by-turn directions. I take a look at the map, jot down a few notes on a piece of paper, and that’s good enough.
