Re: Because DWC members know their shit: Motorcycle questions - what to get for my first real bike

Really appreciate all the comments, definitely need read/watch videos and practice braking. Will keep updating my learning and the bikes in this thread. Had a great ride last Sunday and the bike was really great. Fun to discover old roads and riding through the smaller towns that unfortunately I se...

Re: Because DWC members know their shit: Motorcycle questions - what to get for my first real bike

I've just read down through this thread, it's very interesting as I'm also thinking about getting a bike. I've seen you guys reccomend all sorts mainly Japanese or European bikes, but very few American bikes. I dont remember seeing any suggestions for Indians. I presume they are not really starter ...

Honda CB-F concept.

Re: Because DWC members know their shit: Motorcycle questions - what to get for my first real bike

Need more pics andrea This is the actual bike I’m getting. I love the old school looks coupled with that sporty heart They took one of the best 900 engines made (at the time it was best in class), and they tweaked it from the original “racing” settings to a much more usable beast: it’s 110 hp with ...

Naked bikes have been doing well in terms of sales for some time now, the hornet was the first one to bring them into the mainstream. Prior to...
