  4. motorcycle registrations and fatalities

    We all know motorcycling is dangerous, right? Motorcyclists are somewhere between 10 and 30 times as likely to die in a motor vehicle accident as automobile drivers. The chances of this dire outcome are small, and we individually do what we can to increase our odds, but the statistics do not lie....

  17. Downsizing bike?

    So my wife is giving up riding, so I thought it'd be a opportunity to trade in both our bikes and get a new bike. Life has been busy for me last few years, so I only get to take it out on weekends now. Was thinking of maybe downsizing to a 300cc-500c bike.. I know I only have a SV650, but it's...

  18. Switching from Beacon to Coast Capital for 3rd party insurance

    Ever since I got my SV several years ago, I was using Beacon for 3rd party insurance. I liked that they pay out agreed value for the bike, and that they would insure my track only bike for theft. These are the 2 things that as far as I know no other 3rd party insurance would do. Last few years...

  21. Bike covers - good? Bad?

    I bought a new bike today and the sales guy told me I'm better off leaving my bike to the elements rather than using a cover every day (during summer that is). Apparently putting a cover on and off that often wears on the paint, and if the bikes still warm it will cause condensation leading to...

The thin leather on the sides of the fingers is always gonna be the weak spot on a sport glove, and I suppose there...
