I'm actually impressed he didn't slide further than he did. Sounds like his gear worked as it should.
How is the finger length on those? My normal issue with gloves is that they fit in width but not in length.
For day-to-day wear, this isn't a problem, but on a bike or a motorcycle where you are putting weight on the joint between thumb and forefinger, it gets uncomfortable if the glove is too short.
I usually have a problem with my fingers being too long and these gloves are perfect. If you size right it will be easy o accommodate the width and length. If you're interested, PM me. Remember, 100% satisfaction guaranteed or you can return it!
about to buy a pristine condition 2012 Ninja 650R with 5.6k miles, needs a new rear tire..other than that it's fine and comes with a two bros exhaust, seller was asking $4,900, I got him down to $4,200 (apparently lost his job and needs $)
this is a first bike so I'm going used...think I should pull the trigger?
It's a parallel twin, so not as twitchy as an I4 - for a beginner I think it's one of the better choices as far as a sportbike goes. A cousin of mine got one as his first bike and I was nervous for him, but once I rode it I could see it working for him. Weird thing - asking seems to be low to mid 4s for all of them, from 2005-2012.
What I've encountered on my CB400T is being unable to maintain a buffer zone to the rear when someone inattentive comes up behind me too quickly. It will (theoretically) top out at ~100 mph, but if I'm cruising at 60 mph in 5th it'll take a while to speed up unless I downshift a couple of gears and lean on it. I290 if really bad for this, to the point I typically keep the gears low and the revs up, just in case.
Gents, the g/f is putting me under a lot of pressure, some shit about "All I hear is talk about your next pair of shoes or your next bike but nothing about us (read: ring), blah blah blah". SO it seems my 1098 Streetighter S dreams might have to get put on hold. 2nd gen Speed Triples are looking pretty good right now though. Suspension is a little soft and it doesn't have balls like the Duc but I like how they ride. What say you?
Buy her a helmet and ask her if she'll be your ride or die chick?
