THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

Are there any considerations I have to take when it comes to picking a bike? I was planning on used, and I'm looking for something along the lines of a cruiser or street bike. Ideas?
Personally, as my father said get a **** bike that you won't be afraid to throw against a tree. I did this and I'm having every bit of fun learning the ins and outs of this bike and not having to worry about if I lay it down.

My recommendation so that you can go off and on road to practice would be an enduro. You will learn a lot riding one especially off road and slippery surfaces on road. I had an experience several times today where I locked up the rear tire and skidded just to get the feel for it. Riding through the sand and dirt and knowing what to do and how to handle the bike will also teach you a lot about recovery.

This however is all personally what my father has told me.

Warning - an enduro will tend to turn you into a hooligan and you will want to go on sidewalks and up/down stairs.

Mine is tall enough for me at 6'2" - 6'4" at 235 pounds approximately.

Pretty much decided on a Ninja 250 myself. Going to have the cash by next spring and I'll look around for a used one in decent shape. Pretty excited!

Hey folks. I'm looking for a fun sport touring bike. A family friend is willing to sell me his 2007 Moto Guzzi Norge. Price is as yet undetermined, but it'll probably be in the $7k range. That's about right.

Does anyone here have any experience with Guzzis? Can anyone recommend anything similar to look at?

'77 CB750. 100% stock and will stay that way. The original owner had a stroke in '04 and died, and this has sat ever since. He had the foresight to drain the carbs and gas tank. Runs great, just needs some tuning and loving. I dig the older Japanese bikes and I'm starting to outgrow my '81 KZ440.
