mr stewart's starts were un-fricken-believable. literally unbelievable.
Amazing eh? And RC was the holeshot king till last weekend.
Posted April 4, 2005
I watched it last night.
Now I know that Bubba will fall off before the end of 20 laps on occaision, but the current, and former champs may as well pack it in, and head for the TV commentary booth. Stewart has everyone's number

Can I interest you in a 96 ZX-6R for $1200? Got one in my garage this weekend........
That's not a bad deal.
KatanaPlanet.com is Kana-tuna central, but it's down right now.
Skip the GS500- fine for an all-around newbie, but not for a current rider. You'd likely get tired of it in about 10 minutes.
A 600 or 750 Katana would be fine.
JUst try not to look at it as you're walking up to it

While I'm sure there are some of you who do ride here in the desert southwest most of you who are suggesting kick start bikes have no idea how hot it gets out here in the desert and kick starting a bike that has just been dumped really, really sucks. He just wants a bike that he can ride with his son and very low maintenance. Yamaha TTR250 electric start goodness.
True enough- I live in SoCal, and have been riding an older DR350 kicker.
I recently picked up a 99 E-start model for under $ 2000.
A Suzuki DR350 is a pretty bullet-proof bike- air cooled- the same physical size as the DR250.
Ones from 94, or 95 and up can have electric starters too- for under $ 2500.

I'm finding the the FJ1200's and 1300 are hard to come buy. I want a good balance of both sport and touring, but probably more touring. FZ1's are nice, I need to ride one.

Yes. Try one.
And after you've ridden the rest, try a VFR.
Sounds terrible. Sorry to hear it.

You can stop looking. Yamaha FZ1. Yearly award winner of best overall bike and tons of mods that make touring easier (luggage, etc).
I wish to hell I never sold mine.

My legs don't fit in the tank cut-outs.

Engaged? At his age? With his money? Are his advisors as stoopid as he is?

I rode at Gorman about a year ago- did around 50 miles on a Saturday, and passed 5 other bikes at most.
Posted March 27, 2005
Is $ 1500 too much?
Posted March 26, 2005
Never been past it myself but if you're free on Sunday I'd be up for that ride with you.
Posted March 25, 2005
Wow. Lot's of VFR brothers here;
I voted with my wallet.

That must be the area just south of the Orange Empire Rwy Museum. I guess it was just a matter of time.
I guess it was just a matter of time.
Sad though- When I was riding there in October we were speculating on how long it would take to happen, and nobody thought it would happen this fast.
i've never ordered from them yet was always ordering from dennis kirk but with all these good posts ill give it a shot
You mean that you're gonna try the TT store, right
Posted March 17, 2005
I placed an order on Friday-changed it Saturday, it was shipped on the same Saturday, and I received yesterday- Wednesday.
Shipping was $ 7.00
No complaints here.

I had the petcock fail on my SE too, only when I went to start it, it was hydrolocked (BAD ), luckily I didn't hurt anything. My carb also had a cracked o-ring on the float level seat. If you have experienced this your oil will be thin and stink of fuel as the other guy said previously.
The problems that you guys are mentioning are typical of any bike that is 12, or 13 years old, not just a DR.
That's Old School.
I'll bet that sticker was designed around 1970
Ya young whipper snappers.

Only if he paid off the loan.
If he took her $$, and took off without paying off the loan, I'd say your friend is screwed.
The DR is an under-braked bike IMO - that is compared to other bikes I ride - I would opt for the over-sized rotor, IF titax is worth a crap. Is that rocky mountain's own brand or something?
If it is their house brand it looks like they're changing.
Instead of being 85 to 100 $, they're only $ 30 for reg.steel, and 40 for stainless.
Going with the oversize rotor would require caliper mods too, which I'm not interested in doing. I've also found it has enough brakes for off-road riding.
I went with the regular steel versions. It's unlikely that I'll ride enough to wear one out, and here in SoCal rain isn't that much of an issue.
