Topic: Best age to teach my son to ride in the dirt

I got my kid a used Yamaha BW-80 when he was 6 years old. 2 fat tires, 3 gears but no clutch. When he was 9, we traded up to a Honda XR with a clutch. He is 12 now, and a real log jumper.

Nothing teaches responsibility, risk, reward, and rip roaring fun better IMHO.

When I bought my R in 2003, I asked the dealer about the usual RPM limits during break in. He told me to ride it HARD from the start. "Don't beat it, but be sure to use the entire powerband often." It turned out to be good advice. I twist the throttle hard, and venture into the party zone a lot. The...

On July 2nd 2005, I hit the pavement face and shoulder first with a Nolan NE100 flip face. Although I got busted up pretty good, my smile and striking good looks are still intact. (Of course everyone is looking good on the net) My insurance company sent me a check for a new helmet, and there is noth...

308, if you have any trouble, PM me an email address. A member here (sweatmark!) sent me an email loaded with instructions and detailed pics a few years ago ago when I bought mine.

I can forward that email to you if you need it.

Not sure a currency converter portrays the actual costs of the 2 bikes in Canada. BMW Canada lists the MSRP on the K1200GT as $24,500 Canadian, perhaps that price has increased? The Yamaha Canada website has 2 FJR1300 models: The A model for $18,899.00 CDN. The AE model for $20,999.00 CDN. BMW's hav...

Sorry, I am not Doug, but here is my take: This is the main section for the R1150R website. Only R1150R (or at least i.e.-R1150R- motorycle-based) topics should go in here. to-mat-o vs. to-mot-o?

My R1150R also cranks a lot more to start in colder temps. When it gets real cold, I will need a few hours of a battery tender else I can kill the battery.

I recommend getting a battery tender and leaving it plugged into your accessory port during your cold season.
