My state has no helmet law for motorcycle riders. It is time for a new bike. I want something light and easy to handle yet still cruise worthy. Any suggestions?
I had a Triumph Bonneville 650 in the 70's.
I have a Kawasaki 750 Vulcan now.
Something along those lines would be good.
They discontinued the Vulcan.
Triumph Bonneville can still be had.
Either can be had on E-Bay.
Get some good leather too. And for anybody just starting out, always have this attitude whenever you're riding, "EVERYBODY else is somehow trying to KILL ME." It'll drive your awareness to the level you need to stay safe.
I think that it's literally the most accurate attitude to have when you're just learning how to be safe out there, because sometimes there appears to be no other logical explanation for what's happening. Just tell yourself, They're trying to kill me, I cannot trust them to keep me safe, I have to do it myself.It sure seems that way at times.
Right. For those driving cars and trucks, when you're behind a bike it's easy to creep in closer than you would when trailing another car or truck. Leave them more room than you ordinarily would, it'll keep them safe from suddenly being run over from behind, by giving you enough time to respond to any sudden need to stop.Typically, people driving cars and trucks are focusing on other cars and trucks and they tend to not see motorcycles.
or, one i'd like to get someday
