Another thing to consider is the fit of your helmet?
My first helmet was far too loose (I thought it was tight) and at higher speeds the buffeting would make my vision go blurry.
When I bought my latest helmet (Bell Qualifier) I went one size smaller.
Because the fit is tighter it is less...
I had a Virago 250 as my first bike. It was a ton of fun!
In some ways I wish I still had it just because it was a blast to boot down country roads.
The reason you see so many of them going cheaply is that as soon as you start riding with others on more powerful bikes

As the days get longer and the snow starts to melt, the sap starts running, and the scent of maple syrup permeates the sugar bush.
The Canadian motorcycle enthusiast emerges from his den where he has spent the past six months huddled by the fire, reviewing last seasons Moto-GP race videos and...
Nope, don't do it, totally impossible and impractical. ;)
Given how low bike lifts are when folded down I don't think it's necessary to build in a sump. We're only talking a few inches. If your water table is only within inches of your garage floor you have other bigger...

I'm looking on the Sheridan college continuing education website and found that they no longer offer the
riding courses at the CCIW location in Burlington.
Does anyone have any insider knowledge about why that is?
