|19 years ago today I skipped school,went to andersons honda and started my road bike carrer on a 1989 fzr600 yamaha. Remember it like it happened yesterday. Here is some of what I have learned.
1 asphalt hutrs. see I cant even spell it right.
2 its a road,not a race track.
3 tires arent cheap
4 Chics dig motos
5 the more motos the better,the more broke you are as well...
6 cage drivers are going to try to kill you any chance they get.
7 scooters are great tools for learning how to ride in traffic.
8 2 strokes are more fun,and klotz is the best cologne,I mean oil, you can get.
9 safety starts between the ears.
10 good gear is worth the extra quid.
11 dirtbikes are the greatest thing next to women.
12 dirtbikes require as much maintenance as women.
13 chrome wont get you home,but it might get you laid. thank you h1.
14 Honda builds almost undestructable roadbikes.
15 fzr plastics are the most frail,brittle, piles of poop ever concieved for a motorcycle.
16 good tools=easy maintenance
17 Mentoring is harder than learning. Teach them well.
18 PRACTICE YOUR TECHNIQUES.
19 RIDE,just ride. therapy, bah hum bug,ride. booze and drugs,pah! doesnt get me high enough,ride. No matter what happens in a day,I can always go ride.
Its the first day of fall. Remember temps are a falling,tires need temp to work. Deer are horny and do the craaziest things right now. Keep a level head. Oh and most important,RIDE! Cheers.
Oh forgot always check your mirrors.... loads of knowledge that would take pages to impart.
I always ride on today,and today its coldish and rainy. Im growing weary with riding in the rain. Oh well,better than driving.
the best bike out.... is the one your on...
1996 honda vfr

|I'm hoping you got a second disc up front, plus a fork brace and a reed valve on the fuel intake. Those Kwackers are known for having rather abrupt powerbands as well as 'issues' with steering and stopping. :)|
A buddy of mine told me the first time he took a ride on an H1. He's sitting at a light, pooting two-cycle smoke out the back, and some guy in a Camaro rolls up and revs the engine. So Kurt decides, what the hell, he's gonna show this fool what he's up against. Light turns green, he romps on the throttle, and to his surprise, the Camaro's gaining ground rolling into the intersection. So he kicks the bike into second, Camaro's still pulling ahead... drops it into third... and that's when the rear wheel hooked up, front wheel goes skyward, and Kurt's doing a pull-up on the bars while shooting past the muscle car like a scalded cat. He NEVER got hamhanded with that H1 again, ever.
