I figure there are some motorcycle guys/gals on CP, so I thought we could have a place to talk all things Motorcycles.

Tire Mount and Balance Prices (as of 10/29/16)

Prices based on if you remove the wheels yourself and bring the wheels and new tires with you:

Cycle Gear - $35 per wheel if you buy tires from them. $58 per wheel if you buy tires elsewhere
Rawhide - $65 per wheel (assuming it would be the same at other HD dealers. they book it at 1/2 hr per wheel)
C R Cycle Tires (DeSoto) - $30 per wheel

Cheapest I've found my Michelin Commander II's. Seem like they have good prices on other brands too.

I'm a big honda guy. They are tanks.

My current rider is a 2002 CBR F4i. I also picked up a 1974 CB750 project bike. I haven't had the chance to crank on it yet but I'm looking to this bike as inspiration...



I'd like to upgrade my F4i and get something a bit friendlier on the back but stay in the sporty field with the naked bike, cruisers just aren't my thing.

I'm looking at the CB1000R



or the Triumph Street/Speed Triple

You queer n00bs should keep to posting in the baking and Pine-Sol threads.

I've ridden Harleys, sport bikes, muscle bikes and loved them all.

I do if they wave first.

30 mph is the same on a scooter as it is on a motorcycle.

Probably can't go wrong with the Yammy (formerly). Of the metrics cruisers I think Yamaha/Star motorcycles are the best.

Had about a dozen bikes, here are stock shots of my favorites;

1985 Suzuki GSX-R750 Air Cooled, 388lbs pure rush


During the seventies, I rode this 2 stroke 750 triple and it was a great bike, great times


I also rode moto during the sixties & seventies, my 1972 Bultaco 250 Pursang looked like this (note the right foot shift, as I recall it was a backward pattern too -- 1up 3 down)



It's been several years since I sold my last bike. I am thinking of getting another one -- 2013 Yamaha VMax looks like fun

Those first Suzukis were mean as shit. I rode an 1986 one about 8 yrs ago. Thing was so unpredictable from a lower standpoint. Which made it so much fun.

The old Honda Hurricanes were slick too

I ride a K6 Gixxer 1000. (on the street, anyways)

Used to do track days but really haven't had the time in last couple years.



Off road is a different story.

Still manage to tear it up on the mountain trails behind my cabin every other day.
:-)




As far as bikes I wouldn't mind having in the near future....

I have my sites set on the Ducati Multistrada.

The thing I liked about that GSXR was the super light weight and the 18" rims -- could really scrub into corners hard and the bars stayed neutral. I made a few trips to Laguna Seca with that bike in tow. Flipping down the corkscrew was a rush on that bike -- it left the pavement coming out of the top corner and down the screw the first time I really opened it up on that course. heart went in throat. But I managed to always keep the shiny side up on that bike.

Hurricanes were great handlers also. bit heavier, but quite capable.

I'd love to find another GT750 Triple, that bike was a great traveler and having the two stroke midrange was just pure rush on the highways.
