  1. What's right for my height?

    New Rider Orientation
    Okay so I'm 15, only 5' 6", and a girl and I just passed my permit test for my motorcycle. I've been driving my brother's 1993 Gl650 motorcycle, but it's a little bit to tall for me( the seat height is around 30-31 inches) and too heavy( weighing at about 550 pounds). I know a kawasaki ninja 250...
  2. Should I even bother servicing this '01 F4i which has no proof of maintenance?

    General Discussion
    I plan to purchase a 250-300cc starter bike this autumn. Most likely, after 1-2 years of riding it I'll want to move up to a bigger bike. My older brother's 2001 CBR600F4i has been sitting in the garage for 3 years. It may be the bigger bike I'll want to ride in the future. How much money should...

    Here's the thing...I REALLY want a bike. I've wanted one for about a year and I finally have the funds to get one. However, I've never driven a manual car much less a street bike. I have every intention of taking it slow and learning on back roads and things. My friend sent me a link from...
  6. CBR vs. Fireblade?

    New Rider Orientation
    Hello, everyone. I'm new to riding. Been learning on a 150. So far, so good. Planning on getting a Honda 250 (fingers crossed) when I feel quite comfortable riding in traffic. Been reading up on differences, or lack thereof, between CBR and Fireblade. Is there really OR are these just two...
