My ninja 250r was 35 bucks with icbc
And now gixxer 600 is 65 bucks
It's just about double.
I have max discount

In terms of 600
Get the one that you like the style the best.

I've got a not really a Motorcycle question, but might be the good place for it.


So around my home and work there are a few crack heads that have shitty old mountain bikes that have a little 49cc engine bolted to it. Are those illegal to ride? If you put a motor on a bicycle, does it not become a moped? Obviously you can't get insurance for it. But are you allowed to use them on public roads?

Yea, they are very illegal on public roads. I saw one pulled over a couple of years ago by a cop. Maybe muffle the shit out of the exhaust and disguise the engine as a battery pack. lol.

It's interesting they use an 80cc motor in it. Probably a standard kit package designed to fit on a whole bunch of bicycles. May be legal on dirt paths.

You'll get better suggestions if you give an idea of price range to stick with?

$500ish budget, I could go higher if I had to. It really all depends on the brand and so on. Just looking to see what people use and have used and what they prefer most.

I think you're typically looking at $900 minimum for a one piece leather suit. You could go textile but they're almost throwaway the first time you go down, while leather will handle a number of slide outs.

Forgot to add, there will be some end of season deals.

That's about $800 with our crappy exchange rate. And he could get dinged for taxes too.

Bananana melts in rain so it's depending on weather for me also. I'm planning to do the The 2015 Distinguished Gentlemans Ride on the same day. Hopefully the times won't clash too much!

I did the nerdy wet weather thing yesterday and went to Holeshot to sit on some bikes.

I sat on a KTM RC390, which is a bike I have thought is very cool. It has a very upright riding position and the grips are high and easily accessible. I can imagine this would be a comfortable bike to ride.

Earlier in the day I had read an article in Sport Rider comparing the 1299, S1000RR and the new R1... and it was clear that the R1 had (by far) the most aggressive rider ergonomics. I found it pleasantly accessible. The clip-ons felt fractionally higher than mine and the seat fractionally lower. No question it's an aggressive riding position. I adore the TFT display.

I have a huge boner for the rc390. Hard to get past the 1 cylinder exhaust note though. 50hp is plenty for the city. Same as my gf's old gsxr400. Would like to feel the difference on a new single vs an old straight 4 making similar power. Really want to test ride one
