    New track bike

    Love my Nomar! Had buyer remorse right after I bought it but after I broke it twice and Nomar sent me replacement parts without cost or questions I realized it's a tool for life and I'm now content with my purchase. Figure in another couple years I'll break even on my investment.

    Starter Bike for Wife

    Late to the game here but thought I'd share my wifes bike progression over the years. ... She stared with a vstar 250 great for learning but once she had it down and knew what she was doing we quickly realize how anemic it was almost to dangerous levels and we made a mistake. The bike was just too light to be stable at speeds, or in any kind of cross wind it was all over the place. On the open road it didn't have enough power to get out of its own way. One time on a 4 lane(non interstate)she was attempting to over take a semi at maybe 65mph. She got beside the semi and stayed there, took a few miles to make the pass. I gave her hell at the net stop saying if that truck would have made a bad move or lost tire she would have been dead. Her reply made the decision to get rid of that turd. She said "I had it wide open" she hit the side draft off the truck and the bike just hit a wall. Around town this bike would be fine but anything over 45 mph i would strongly discourage it. She then went to a Honda VLX600, great bike pretty much bullet proof. 100lbs heavier than the 250 and almost twice the power. She rode that for several years. then she wanted a more all day bike to ride. One more for the hiway and open road so we went with the vstar 1100. It was a okay bike for her although "I" hated it. Really heavy for what it was carberated and air cooled, don't regret buying it but she wanted something different eventually. She now has here Indian Scout and WOW! what a bike. Lots of power, perfect size and comfort for her. That thing still impresses me. Can't think of a better bike for her now.

    @Pokey sold me a POS. Worst bike I've ever owned. I hate it and never ride it. Should piss on it and set it on fire. What an a-hole.

    Funny picture thread.

    Anyone else order one?

    Eating burritos helps with that.

    Anyone else order one?

    This obviously depends on the the size of said burritos. We don't have enough info to form a hypothesis. If your going to ask such insane questions with out the information needed to answer them you can just remove yourself from our Burrito thread.
  16. For those that are following Dan (Danimal) and his big trip in South America know today while visiting Machu Picchu he dropped his good digital camera and it broke. He is now without a camera other than his little iphone. Dan's camera has been our window into his world and journey and I personally have enjoyed every damn post of it. Dan said he doesn't have it in his budget to replace the camera so im going to try and do a little fund raiser. I'd like to gather the funds via friends and followers and send it to him via paypal so he can source and purchase a new camera while on the the road. If anyone wants to contribute to Dan's camera replacement fund I'm going to head it up. Send paypal funds of any size to..... EDIT: PAYPAL EMAIL REMOVED BECAUSE FUND RAISER IS OVER.....RESULTS WILL BE POSTED BELOW. .....and I'll be sure dan receives every dime. I'm also going to do some coordination with various web sites and forums very soon and make this more formal/official. Please include any well wishes and or comments in the donations and i'll be sure you get credit for your contribution. Please sent funds via paypal freinds and family so we incur no fees or charges. Or if you wish you can send fund to me personally and ill be sure to include them in the transfer. Lets get the big guy a new way to show us the world!

    Let's help a brotha out.(EDIT: FUND RAISER ENDED)

    Okay folk this list is current and the fund raiser is over. Like I said before we got a overwhelming response and have raised...... $950.....for Dan to replace his camera, help cover the glass door he broke at the Hostel last week and the rest will just buy him more days on the roads or for future unforseen things. I have sent the money to Dan and currently awaiting his initial reply to it. It was far more than I thought we would get so I'm sure he's shocked right now. THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR HELP A MASSIVE SERVINGS OF GENEROSITY, YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!

    Let's help a brotha out.(EDIT: FUND RAISER ENDED)

    Okay folks first of all I want to say between here, FB and ADV Rider we have had a overwhelming response to this call out. I want to thank everyone that has donated you have truley out done yourselves. This whole paypal thing has made it so easy. I'm happy to say we have more than over passed my initial goal and amount of money i think Dan will need to replace his camera. At this point I'm just going to leave it open for continued donations till tomorrow(11/24) evening maybe around 8pm. And all the fund that go over what is needed for his camera replacement will simply go towards and other expenses and thing associated with his trip as a whole. So anyone else that still wishes to contribute by all means your generosity will find it's place during Dan's journey. So tomorrow evening I'll post a list of all the donors so they can be thanked and recognized(won't post how much for each individual) but I will post the total once I have sent it all to Dan. Thanks again y'all !
