    I've never ridden a C but am confident in saying the HP is nothing to worry about. I've had an R1100RS for 19 years and I'm sure they are similar.

    No SV650

    The SV650 is too fast for a total beginner. If she has some prior experience, maybe she's pretty good on a dirt bike, for example, then maybe ok. If she tends to be a hot rod and has little or no...

    I have a 94r11rs and have put over 10k on 2 sets of 21's. Rain, canyons, desert heat and a sleet storm near Flagstaff. I'd run them again.

    If you're still in North Hills and want to listen to my bike, which makes the "they all do that" noise, PM a number where I can reach you. Looks like you're not that far away and I could probably...

    Poll: Whoops, me too

    Wasn't paying enough attention to the polling request. Sorry. Please disregard my vote for the old un-restored bike that wants another chance to show the young pups it can still cut the mustard.
