Custom Molds Make All The Difference

For the first few years riding i didn't use plugs or earbuds at all. Really regret that.

SV v CBR

My wife just sold her SV650S and bought a CBR250R. Both bikes have the same kind of puppy-dog fun about riding them. Obviously the SV lopes along a little easier at higher speeds, and the CBR is...

Keep giving the market what it does not want?

I dont think its a good business move at all. The Gen 6 VFR is 10 years old so no surprise people aren't clamoring to buy, and the VFR1200 was never well received here. Honda seems to take from...
