Want to improve the performance of your motorcycle? Learn to ride!



I had a friend who had a cruiser SuZook ask me if I used the front brake!! ( I ride a BMW RS and a Yamaha sportbike) Say what? THAT my friends is an accident waiting (not for long) to happen.



I took him out to a parking lot and we did some braking drills and got him over his fear of the front brake and now he rides a bit better. Braking and swerving is next! THAT should be interesting!

Wait for the ZX-14 Concours next year. Bags, shaft drive and as they say on the Right Coast "Wicked Fast!" I am tempted to get rid of the BMW and go this route. Heck I really need that power to haul my 140 pounds around!



BTW I have been to the Freddie School - it really is a great educational experience. It changed my riding (for the better) a large amount.

"Trickle down Economics" or "Reaganomics" is a great policy if you're rich.



If you're on your game you'll give the rich big tax breaks while we are at war, the first time ever.



Our Children face a grim legacy in many ways, our record setting national debt removes many options.

Don't forget Kerry and the rest of the libs criticized Bush 1 because he didn't "finish the job."

Except for wheel size, and a disc rather than a drum on the back; the EX500 hasn't changed since 1986. (styling changes in '94 excluded)



Still, it is(was) a good bike. Ditching the flexi-frame, adding better brakes and a decent suspension - would have been sufficient to sell EX500's for at least another 10 years. Instead, Kawi killed it with the EX650/ER-6N.
