We just picked up our first Ural the other day. With our family setup, multiple drivers, home, safe record, etc, it was only $27/mo to insure it for a proper amount we do, which is pretty decent. I...

IMHO, they're one wheel and a lowered suspension away from being a side-by-side atv, and nowhere related to 'motorcycles'. If anything it's just a convenient licensing/insurance way of defining it as...

Spyders on the other hand... I feel they have more in common with snowmobiles and ATVs...

Fair enough. I tried to put it on a third time just now and it really doesn't feel 'right' to me. I'm going to send it back and do a bit more research. Maybe a size up will work eventually. :cry

Believe me, I'd love to! The closest dealers to me are hours away, and I don't have a real excuse to drive 3+ hours to find one. Even if I was lucky, they'd probably only carry one of the brands I'd...

Arai XD-4 Too Tight?

Oh, I know, this has probably been talked about before. I did some searching, but none of the threads I came across seemed to mention my particular worry.

I think the majority of us were required to go around for a second pass. Remember, there were only 5-6 of us. I distinctly remember thinking 'oh, I guess we have to do it the other direction on take...

I'll defer to your knowledge. As I said, it's been a while. I really appreciate rider coaches. I promise. :D

This was a couple years ago, so my memory is a little fussy, but I think it happened like:

Instructor gave us the instructions on the serve course. On first set, we all went right. On second set,...

Oh, don't get me wrong, I messed up a few other things (forgot instructions on the swerve test and ended up following every other student in swerving in the wrong direction.

The shifting cost me...

You see, I had the opposite neutral problem a lot of people seem to have. My bike seemed to refuse to go into second on command on first try. It was a little Kawi Eliminator 125. I failed the test...

I'm working on getting my first adventure bike soon, but right now I ride a cruiser (highly modded Kawi Vulcan 900). I get snubbed by guys every now and then as well, even when appearing to be apart...

An excellent point! I won't be changing loadouts or riding styles often enough to warrant the ESA. I'll be 80/20 on/off at very most, always alone with minimal gear (few sets of clothes, basic...
