  1. 600cc or 1000cc for starter bikes?

    This is pretty old and might need a few parts or work. https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/mcy/6117058030.html
  2. 600cc or 1000cc for starter bikes?

    This looks like a dealership. I wonder if you could finance it. It does indicate that it has some plastic damage. https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/mcy/6136530537.html
  3. 600cc or 1000cc for starter bikes?

    If it's a valid advert, you could go and see it and offer less money.
  4. 600cc or 1000cc for starter bikes?

    https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/mcy/6117293734.html Just found the advert. That's all I know.
  5. 600cc or 1000cc for starter bikes?

    Do you think a Ninja 250 is the same or better than a CBR 250? There are 250's with ABS even.
  6. 600cc or 1000cc for starter bikes?

    The 250 should be fine then. A 300 would have a little more power, but they cost more, too.
  7. 600cc or 1000cc for starter bikes?

    The stock tires will be good enough. Watch moto3 racing. Relatively skinny tires.
  8. 600cc or 1000cc for starter bikes?

    In that case, maybe the 250 is OK. It will be really fast compared to a bicycle and it has lights! What's the highest speed during your commute?
  9. 600cc or 1000cc for starter bikes?

    I'd say no. Get a Ninja 500 in that case. Or just get *a* bike and start riding! By next year you'll really know what you need. Or grab that SV650 in the previous post.
  10. GPS recommendations

    One downside of a cheaper phone seems to be less storage space. Sygic takes up a lot of space from what I can tell. Could try a larger uSD card, I guess.
  11. GPS recommendations

    I have a cheap, Tracfone Android. I plan to try it with Google Maps. The phone itself cost maybe $40. Not a big loss if it falls off! So far, from what I've seen, using maps barely uses data. I use way more credit for texts. Topping it up is still less expensive than a monthly plan so far. I use PC's more so anyway.
  12. Nicky Hayden Bicycle Accident

    In Italy do they drive on the American side of the road? In England there have been incidents in which people looked the wrong way before trying to cross a street. I was a bit overloaded trying to drive a manual motorcar on the opposite side. A few times I smacked my shifting hand into the door panel. And round-abouts are clockwise.
  13. GPS recommendations

    Yeah, that stuff looks good. What would be considered a bargain for an SMH10? I don't foresee needing an intercom. Mainly something that will output audio, and /maybe/ take some voice input.
  14. GPS recommendations

    I need to hijack something, so... After researching less expensive (than the Sema SMH10) BT receivers, I bought a RAM mount for my phone instead. heh I figure do try this in 2 or 3 steps. First, mount the phone, then add a power connection, then maybe add BT. As it is now, I pull out my phone when I get lost, look at the map, put the phone away, then get lost again.

    For OP: Quick search on Cinci CR in the $3000-$3500 range. Anything decent? https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/mcy/6099369934.html https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/mcy/6074701551.html https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/mcy/6108070880.html
