So obviously I'm out of the motorcycle loop a bit as I'm not sitting on one yet.

Noticed Kawasaki had a 300 out now that costs like 4800 as opposed to the 250s 4500.

Anyone know how those are going? As a guy who weighs like 200lbs and who would like to keep their bike for quite a while, would it be worth it to step up to the 300 over the 250 for long term purposes?

And since we're posting photos.
I used to own one as a race bike.

But really, I bought a leather jacket today, and I got white. Will I have any trouble keeping it clean?

I don't like the looks of most the Honda Sport bikes with the stubby nose. It looks like you ran into the back of a car and smashed it in.

My bike is all dismantled and in my bedroom! Well, almost. My ******* "friend(s)" that said they'd help me carry the chassis into my room are nowhere to be found. Besides that I'm ****ing beat from carrying everything else up. Pics to follow later tonight when I force someone into helping me haha.

I've never liked the styling of the CBR's myself.

Went on a four hour ride today with a group of about 10 people. First time riding with a group of younger people, so naturally they were all blasting down the road doing 160. One wrecked taking a turn too fast, but other than that it wasn't too bad.

Test drove one, the back seat comfort isn't on par with the Goldwing's at least for the Mrs. it wasn't. Loved the electric windshield and other state of the art goodies, but won't buy any new model bavarian until it has a couple of seasons on it to work the bugs out. That being said, I'm looking at either a loaded GS or GSA for "my ride" as the Wing is "our" ride next year when the Wing is paid off.

I'm 19 and haven't killed myself or wrecked doing outrageous stuff. Some people really have no damn clue. It's my opinion everyone should ride dirt for years before getting on the street. Not really related to what were talking about...but...yeaa
