Went dirtbiking at a friends house last night. I was on a 150 for most of the night (Friend is rich and loves dirtbikes ), then at the end went on his 250 while he tried out his new 450. He asked if I wanted to try, but fuck I thought I was going to kill myself.

haha no dude its nice year around. It might be a little cold during January - Febuary for us beach bums, but as long as u wear all your protective equipement u will be perfectly comfortable. Only thing that stops us is the rain. Now summer thats where i find it more difficult, its so hot u cant wear your protective gear especially with our freeways and surface streets so jammed u dont get any airflow (405, 605 pch) Have fun!

thanks for the heads up. Im sure if it was in the valley itd be fine, but coast might be a bit chilly, I was considering if I should aim to go try to get everything around the new years or just wait till spring, thanks for the heads up.

well i know for a fact around here (long beach), the bikes go down in price in the winter. If i were you i would get it during the winter when the prices are cheaper, u might not get to ride it as much as you would during the spring but i think saving a couple hundred bucks makes it worth while. Plus u would have time to polish mod ect. I rode my bike all this past winter when i sold my car in december and the only time i didnt ride was when it rained. As long as i wore my leath. jacket, full helmet, gloves and pants i was completly comfortable.

So my dad finally unleashed me into the streets, Sunday we went for a ride, he has a 2004 Kawasaki Concurs and I was riding my aunts 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 Classic. This was my first time on a road bike and my first time on the streets. We rode for about 2 hours did just over 80 miles I think.

It was a blast, the feeling of cutting through the air and lanes seem so wide when your are on a bike. It was great and sealed the deal I am going for my MSF training and getting my liscence soon, hopefully one weekend this september.

Question: how bad is upshifting without the clutch? I did it by accident today when my hand slipped off the clutch but my foot kept going up.

I was surprised how it worked fine and didnt grind at all.

Actually if done right it's barely hard on the tranny at all, and it saves your clutch.

If you want to make a quick and smooth launch, you can do that. But unless youre under some hard acceleration, dont do it. Just a track trick.

I've been thinking about buying a bike for a while now.

I'm 6'1, 185.

I love the looks of the YZFR6/Kawasaki ZX6R but I've been told that those are way too much power to start on.

I don't need ridiculous power, but I want something that looks damned sleek.

Are there any modern-style beginner bikes that look sporty, or am I going to have to take it back to the 80's?
