That's always been my issue too. When I first heard about the 500EXC, I though that it had the potential to be my next bike.

As great as it is though, it doesn't have a subframe that can...

For me, the twin makes sense for the reasons above, plus the fact that it's more fuel efficient than the triple and - in the case of the Yamaha - runs on regular fuel. I'll even bet that the twin...

Juice may not have ridden the FZ-07, but I have and I was blown away by it. Mind you, I had already ridden the FZ-09 and absolutely loved it as a hooligan bike. (Nothing gets me excited like the...

Amen!

My main touring bike (don't have an adventure bike yet) is an old YZF-600R. It's 465 pounds and makes about 100 hp at an RPM I virtually never get to... I seldom have it over 5,000 rpm. So...

They already have the 700 twin, though, and are looking for more places to use it.

And while the S10 might be struggling in sales, that seems to be all the more reason to come up with something...

Not a bad theory, but I would think that it would be easier to redesign the sump than tool up for a new 495cc engine. I'm chomping at the bit for a mid-sized adventure bike from Yamaha. It will be...

Thumb Camera Update - Got my new one

I was trying to decide between the RX100, the RX100 II and a few others. The Sony was my main contender, but I like to keep an open mind. I was also struggling about the extra couple hundred bucks...

No thanks to you guys, my budget is completely blown. I started out with a plan of buying a cheap point & shoot to replace my old 7 mp Nikon L14.... something around $150.

Then I discovered the...

Spitting on your earplugs, aside from being disgusting, opens up the likelihood of an ear infection. You don't want saliva in your ear canal for hours on end, particularly in cold conditions.

Respectfully, I disagree that he would have had the same fate on any bike. The intoxicating rush of speed on a sport bike is often too much temptation for an eager young person. Plus, the twitchy...

My thought as well. I've heard that the street version of the F800 gets 60+ mpg... not sure about how the GS version does. I've always been a fan of this bike's weight savings, nimbleness and fuel...
