    If you're one of these...

    If you're a rider that buzzes, cuts off, passes too closely, or is otherwise a jackass to other riders, FU. I don't care what you ride or how cool you think you are, FU. I also don't care if you "wave" or "flash a peace sign" after doing it, FU. If this offends you, perhaps consider how you...

    Black CBR650F in San Diego?

    I saw a black CBR650F in the North Park area of San Diego today parked on a residential street. Anyone from here? Bike looked in decent shape and was all black, not a shiny black though.

    Odd experience today

    I went for a long ride today which was a lot of fun. What wasn't fun was having the bike stall at speed many miles from services. After pulling the bike to the shoulder and shutting it off, I took a look to see if there were any issues. Not seeing or hearing any, I tried to restart the engine...

    CBR650F seat latch issues

    After reading other posts, my problem is likely the spring. Getting to the latch is a problem, however. The bolts with the round tops and what looks like a allen wrench fit don't. What sort of tool and what size do I need to remove those? They are the ones on the bar the latch bolts to.

    Suggestions for new foot pegs

    Only a couple of weeks in and I'm considering a change for the bike. I have noticed that I bump my foot pegs when walking my bike. Any suggestions for new pegs? I have a 2018 CBR650F.

    CBR650F Hello from San Diego, CA

    Yesterday was a very unusual day for me. Yesterday, I had two motorcycles. A 2005 Kawasaki Ninja 500R and a 2014 Kawasaki KLR 650. I had planned to look around for a new motorcycle to replace my other two. I didn't expect to go to a dealer and leave with a brand new bike. Certainly not what I...
