That's too bad. Is it just a bit of a reliability nightmare? I'm considering picking up an old Suzuki enduro cheap to fix up and hoon about and explore dirt/gravel paths I wouldn't take my CBR on.

Hard to say. I'm a new rider and since I'm older (33), I tend to ride slower. Was scared for the first couple of days but now I'm getting more used to it. The bike is a great starter bike and I still have lots to learn, but it can feel little sluggish at times. Gunna try to head out to Pitt meadows with my instructor and see what I can do there

The wife's ninja is a much better looking bike IMO. Haven't had a chance to take it out yet but will report back

Hi everybody - it's short notice and I know a lot of people are doing things for Mother's Day tomorrow but Jessie and myself might take a leisurely ride out to Harrison if anybody wants to join.

I ride my brothers Ninja 250 sometimes and keeping it in a lower gear so it stays in the power band helps around town with acceleration but that's only till 90 after that it’s pretty gutless lol

Any recommendations for a Bluetooth headset? My wife and I took our first ride together but we couldn't even communicate at all. The one I wore during training hurt my ears but I don't know what brand it was

Sema SMH10 is a pretty popular one. I'd go with the newer 20S which has Bluetooth 4.0 and FM radio.

I wish I went with the 20s instead of the smh10. Sena has the best customer service, I broke the clip on the back and they sent me a replacement part

To stay cheap go with the SMH10, you can get a pair for under $300. The 20S is much more expensive. I'm waiting for the price to drop before jumping the gun. But for most peoples use, the SMH10 is fantastic.

the 20s doesn't have great reviews on revzilla

I don't care much about price. I'm more worried about comfort and will pay extra for that. Will update when I find a set

Yea I love my SMH10. The only thing I want from the 20S is FM radio, though I usually stream radio on my phone if I feel like listening to the radio. Usually it's Spotify or my own music though. I want to listen to Podcasts but I can't understand what they're saying over the road noise especially on the highway where I spend half of my commute on.

The Sema SMH5/SMH10/20S units are not uncomfortable. You remove the padding in your helmet, fit the speakers underneath and fish the wires through, then put the padding back in. It took a few tries to find the most comfortable and best sounding position for the speakers but I haven't touched it since.

Also good thing about the SMH10 is the extra headpieces are $45 @ Modern. I have 3 helmets and they're all hooked up with a boom mic.
