    Anybody have any info on tires? I need a rear. I got 4k miles out of a Bridgestone Battlax that came stock on the bike. It's a sport bike but i dont ride extremely hard. I've been up to the mountains but the rest of my miles have been on the highway. Im not a stunter or a racer even though I frequently open it up on I-20. Im trying to determine which tires to get. No need for the hyper sports. They are great for speed and performance but they dont last very long. Im not a track guy so I dont see the need for them. Im thinking of going with the sports touring line. Anybody ever run those on a sport bike? If so how did it work? Where can I get a good price on tires?

    The continental conti are a good tire day to day

    Michelin pilots are pretty much go to classics
    ... personal favorites

    Pirelli Diablo are solid but burn up quick
    Dunlop road smart.....heat up quick and stay sticky ....

    I'm mad that maxxis stopped making sport bike tires .... them joints was rock solid

    I'm digging those Triumph bikes, they look real slick. I see a lot of people on them on the north side of Chicago

    I'm not a fan .... but they have a nice riding seating position of more upright .... making maneuverability better for city traffic ..... kinda like riding a street fighter style

    I must be an idiot because I know two people who have seriously fucked themselves up on bikes in my time, yet I've decided this year that I want to learn and get my motorbike licence. General biker opinion is that accidents tend to be due to bad drivers.

    I partly agree, but my advice is that you have to always be reading the road though and assume that everything is against you... I think most accidents happen 2miles away from your home, so dont assume that just because you are nearly home that you are now safe and can let your concentration slack...

    But if you are at a set of traffic lights and car smashes into the back of you there not much you can do to prevent it, aside from keeping your break light on to let them know you arnt moving...

    I dont commute or ride every day on a bike as Im a fair weather rider, but Ive still had some major close calls and minor accidents at low speeds when I first passed...

    You only live once bruh and I refuse to live afraid. You can get fucked falling off a motorcycle just as easily as you can get fucked up slipping on soap in the shower. I know someone whose life was permanently altered by slipping on soap in the shower. If I gotta be fucked up like that give me a bike. You can keep the soap.

    About to cop my first bike. Flipping between 250 and the 300. Copping gear too

    250cc or 300cc and you might as well get a scooter.

    Yeah, I think if you are looking at a first sports bike Honda CBR500/600 are a good start...

    anything less than a 600 is a waste of time and money

    Not really, to get around town, especially European towns with smaller roads they can be handy to commute with... Plus zipping around on Mopeds is quite fun...

    Mopeds =/= real bikes. Try again

    What are you on about??? What does that mean??? Mopeds are what we call scooters... I dont own one, I got a Harley and had superbikes, but Ive ridden scooters on holiday and friends ones when we where 16... Schitt even Lewis Hamilton gets round on one in Monte Carlo...

    You know scooters come with 600cc+ motors, right? BMW, Suzuki, Honda, and a few other companies make scooters like that these days. IIRC the biggest I've seen was 670cc on a Honda.

    Lol at comparing a scooter to a sport bike. Even if they have similar engine displacement a scooter and a cbr are not the same. They are 2 totally different types of machines that were built to do 2 totally different things. The Z06 'vette and the caddy cts both use the exact same engine but they are completely and totally 2 different machines. Lol at thinking that a scooter with a larger engine is anything other than a scooter. As I said earlier mopeds =/= sport bikes. Try again.

    Im not sure what the debate about scooters and bikes has got to here lol All I said was scooters arnt wack if you have a purpose for them, i.e commuting in towns like London or in Italy were they have a cult following, especially Vespas... Like I said even Lewis Hamilton commutes on one in Monaco or wherever hes at these days...

    Ive never had one, but Ive zip around on a couple 125 and 250's on holiday etc and they are quite fun... Though I wouldnt bother buying one personally...

    My first sports bike was a CBR600 before I got a Fireblade, if you were to get straight onto a Blade or GSXR after passing your test you would probably end up killing yourself, a the dude who taught me said one of his old students killed himself jumping straight onto in a 1000c Ninja trying to keep up with some other experienced riders... A 500/600cc Sportsbike is a perfect first sports bike imo...

    Each to their own though I guess...

    I totally agree with the bolded. 600 is the perfect beginners bike. I personally wouldn't start out on a 750. Starting on a liter bike is straight suicide.
