    That's why I always carry my trusty 12 gauge with me everywhere... :suspect:

    But for real, that sucks man. The court system is never fun and always takes forever to get anything accomplished.

    Need all the motorcycle ppl opinions:

    My bike has a big ol bananannannana seat, that takes the "sporty" look away (google 09 Ninja 650R to see what I mean). There's two ways to fix that, either A: seat cowl or B: new seat. Obvi the seat cowl removes the ability to take a passanger. But still can't decide.. help me choose!

    Usually I prefer seat cowls, but that seat on the red one looks nice.

    Welp, i'm about a month in and had my first accident. Driving on a country road, was in 2nd... not going fast at all, and sure enough his some loose gravel. Rear wheel slid out from under me, I popped up on my turn and tried to stop, didn't work. Went into the grass, and the bike slid. Pretty minor, need a new front cowling and mirror... about $400. Some minor road rash on my elbows, and a major hit to the ego. Dangit!

    Gravel will certainly do that.

    I was pulling over trying to stop and use my phone, tail end slide out from under me but I managed to save it. Would have sucked to because I was right beside a huge ditch that did not look soft at all.

    Been thinking about getting a bike the last couple of weeks. Never been on one in my life. Probably won't follow through and get one, but it's always been an interest in the back of my mind.

    I am trying to sell a big bike(750) that needs a little work. If you are interested in something that big as a first bike, let me know. And no, I wouldn't sell it still needing work.

    I'm all about the Bonneville. If it was good enough for Steve McQueen, it's good enough for me.
