    Sub-4K bikes?

    Soooo I’m seeing a few Vmax (vmaxes?) for sale with 20k miles or less for around or below 4K. Is this legit pricing for some of the older first gen bikes? I’m headstand to get too optimistic. Just seems like such a beast would be going for more! Sorry for the stupid question. Just wanted to...

    Transporting dirt bikes

    I'm entertaining some trades for a vehicle I have, looking at taking in a YZ250 or TE250, I'm interested in how one might safely transport one without a pickup truck. I thought I saw an apparatus on a sedan that went to a receiver hitch and fastened that way somehow, anyone use a system...

    Rebuilt Title Bikes

    Hey guys, I have a chance to buy a bike for the wife for a fairly good deal but it's a rebuilt title bike. The damage the bike had has been all repaired with new Yamaha parts. It'll save me about half of what a new one would cost but I just have reservations I suppose. Thoughts?

    6 cyl bikes video

    An interesting view, includes some rare birds like the Honda RC166 GP 350 cc racer, the FGR Midalu 2500 cc bike from the Czech Republic, a Laverda racer of 1000 cc and and the Horex VR-6 1200 cc bike, which has a narrow-angle (15 degrees) configuration like the VW VR-6 engine...

    Father / Son Dirt Bikes!

    A brief history: I bought my son a Honda CRM 125 here in Hungary. It's nice, but I rode a little 50cc scooter when we rode together on the trails. That sucks. So I found a 1984 Honda CR 125 about 4 hours away. Test rode it, everything was fine, but when I got it home, the engine seized on my...

    Small engine-big on style + 1960 era bikes from catalogs

    Built by an Argentinean, a 210 cc Gilera, his first custom effort. I think it demonstrates you don't need 1000 cc+ to make an interesting bike. From the side, you don't have a good sense of the narrow nature of the bike, but the rear view shows it off. I like the girder, a Sachs, and the...

    Best AGM Batteries OR ? For Various Bikes.

    The battery in my 89 Vmax is an Odyssey PC-680 that was bought in 03/2007. It's just now beginning to fail (The Bike Has A Good 4 Pole Starter). I'd consider that a great service life for a battery BTW. I think they have cheapened their manufacturing requirements though? I also have an 05...

    Why do most or all vmax bikes have a front end wobble if you let go of handle bars?

    New to Bikes and Just got a gen 1 vmax

    As the title states, I just purchased a 2002 Yamaha V-Max and I'm completely ignorant to this bike. So far I've noticed that there are not a lot of options as far as wheels without extensive work to the swing arm and or wheel itself( had my heart set on some ride wright wheels) and the aero...

    Looking at replacement bikes....

    So shopping around at other bikes. I have plenty of ideas 1 M109R for a street cruising toy. I like the looks and the big 1800 cc motor. I know its not fast, but honestly I don't care about that, that much anymore. Still have my ZX14. Hyperpete you can chime in anytime on this :) 2...

    Race bikes vs grudge bikes, the day has come when a street bike is faster.

    I dont really follow the race scene that much anymore. The street scene is just so much more interesting and fun to watch. I stopped by my buddys shop and he has been building another bike to race. His last bike was a bad ass.... 7.0's @202 mph with him on it and National Champ Rob Budgell ran a...
