I'm trying to get her to ride but will not force her. We'll see. I get the "If I had a Ninja 250 or Buell Blast I would ride more" speech. I rubut with If you rode the honda more and got better you would have your sport bike.

I'll probably find her something in the next month or two so she wont be so pissed when I buy a new Tiger or Uly.

When you decide to sell the Rebel let me know the wife would love it.

I gotta say, I would have riden ANYTHING when I first got my license, I just wanted to ride! But I can relate in a way; its all about comfort & mindset. If she has her mindset on riding a ninja she'll never want to ride the rebel. I would suggest getting her something (if she really wants to ride) BEFORE buying yourself another bike so your not sleeping in the garage with all the bikes
Hubby is itching to get a dual sport now, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna come home one day & there's gonna be a new bike in the garage

Right near us so I've gone a couple of times. Got a jacket that fits right on the spot (which doesn't happen often when your not a standard size 8) so that gave them definate points in my book! Have had service done on my quad there, which was good. Overall I like the place, the guys alll seem pretty cool & helpful

Ain't been there for service, but got my helmet and first jacket there last year. Dude in the softgoods store was uber helpful and way nice, even cut me a deal since they didn't have the helmet I wanted. Thumbs up for gear shopping with them, for sure.

For tire changes and inspections I've been using Chuck Wagon Racing @ 151 Allen Blvd. in Farmingdale,he's an independant shop and big into motocross.he also works on all types of bikes, people in the off road world swear by him. $35 for tire off the bike.

Here comes trouble.

OffTheGrid-thanks dude you locked it up at the BBQ with that ride. Even though I couldn't swing my leg over I'm dying for a 450exc. The wifey has no idea. One good deal and that thing is mine.

Mineolamoto- they have lots of my money but I've never felt dirty leaving there like some other places. Helmets, jackets, service (even it kawi brute force they don't sell) no bikes yet because they don't have anything I "need"....hehe

Otg and LIB if you guys are mounting tires yourself let me know. Would love to see that as I hate laying out $$$ for something so easy.

Did I mention I really want a wheelie pulling 450exc :)

I'm in for jeremys tomorrow night. Even leaving work early which is unheard of.

Nice! Glad to be of service.

I had the cash and was VERY eager to buy, but was patient. Within a week after posting this ad http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=468116
I had my new bike.

Be patient! It will happen. Check KTMtalk too.
