Hey guys,


Let's get to know each other better. What do you guys currently riding now or have ridden? I'm new to the motorcycle brotherhood so I don't ride anything at the moment. Had rode on my cousin 2008 Truimph 675 when I visit him in WI. That would probably be my second bike probably choose the 675R.

I'm looking to buy my first bike. I've been saving up a little bit (not a lot in all honesty) and I am looking for an entry level bike to learn how to ride on. I'm trying to look at bikes that haven't come out yet because that will give me time to save more money and I can tell people that I am waiting for the bike I want instead of telling them I don't got the cash right now.

Sounds like a plan bro. Paying cash for one is probably one of the best option, but if you want to build good credit pay 80% and then pay the rest off like in 3 months.

Good advice. Even if you can, try to set up really low payments that last a while even if you have all the money to pay it up front. Even better way to build your credit

dont buy anything you dont have the cash for.

I ride the family dirt bike, little CR250 and I'll occasionally sneak my brothers Ninja 300 out for a ride or two ;)

I've notice a couple of 300 around my area. Yes, buy what you can afford.

What are you riding?

Easiest way to break the ice, what are you currently riding?

List your current bike(s) or even bikes you have owned in the past.

CBR125 right now, its so nimble and light. Seriously feels like a bicycle in a sense AHAH. Contemplating keeping it along with the R3... Kinda of thinking the 125 might be a fun bike to learn track on...

After all thats where the best all started :D;)

I presently have 4 bikes: an FZ07, CB300F, Zero S (2013 8.5), and a 2014 Vespa 300 ie. My last few bikes have included 3 Ninja 300s, a 2011 GSX-R1000, A 2012 Triumph Street Triple r, and a Honda Grom, among many others. I ride over 20,000 miles a year. Since I live in Texas I ride year around. In fact, I'm headed out right now.

I am jealous lol temperature here is dropping. Yet, I love the mountain view here and the green.

I never have to deal with battery tenders, fuel additives, etc. cause I ride all my bikes almost every day. I don't ride in rain is all, but we have very few rainy days and even then, the rain stops and the sun comes out to dry the road it seems like. I bought my FZ07 in June and I know I've ridden it every day since then. I think if I did live in a cold climate, I would still try to go riding often, just not every day if there were wet, sandy, snowy, icy roads. The cold wouldn't stop me, I don't think. A lot of bike problems start with the words..."I hadn't ridden the bike in several weeks and when I tried to start it up......"


I did break my leg about 3 years ago (not bike related) and couldn't ride. At that time I had 2 bikes and I just started them and reved the engine every couple of days for 2 months in the garage with the door open. When I got back on for the first time, the bikes started fine but the gears were clunky I guess from not getting oil into them for 2 months.

You must live down south if that's the case, being a rider it sucks to be living somewhere that gets winter weather for 4-5 months out of the whole year.
