Is this a good first bike?

You sure that's not for chicks considering how long the arms are in comparison to the torso? I honestly have no idea how women's gear sizing works so I could be wrong.

drat I'm not sure honestly. I really just bought it on a whim and thought that was the style as I've seen other jackets like that. I wonder if A* would help identify the jacket if I sent them an email.

After about two years, I'm starting to admit my bike is probably too broke for me to fix myself, or at least I won't find the time to do it properly. So, I should probably just buy something new. I'm a little scattered with what I want, though.

A) A modern (fuel injected) 650 cc comfortable sport/touring bike. Versys, Ninja 650r, SV650, F650GS, etc. Willing to pay around $3,000 for something like this. I realize for this price, it will be an older or higher mileage bike, but I want something that runs and has a title.

B) Old UMJ for under $1,000. Again, something that runs and has a title. Doesn't have to be pretty, but I'd like something 450 cc or larger.

C) Crashed Vulcan or Ninja 500 who's engine I can transplant into my bike. I just care about the engine/trans, no title necessary.

I'm in Central Illinois and am willing to travel 3 hours or so for something. I'm also up in Chicago a lot, so going into southern Wisconsin or western Michigan is alright.

Well, I have a couple interested parties locally, but people flake a lot and more exposure never hurts.

I'm selling my 2010 Honda Shadow Phantom. Completely stock, except for the addition of the tall Honda passenger backrest/mount plates and black finish mirrors to replace the stupid stock chrome ones. I've also added a Vista Cruise pressure-clamp style throttle lock. Bike will come with a pair of Tour Master Cruiser III box saddlebags in XL (unused) and a Cruiser III sissy bar bag in XL (cooler bag insert and small internal case are unused). You'll need to buy mounts for the saddlebags. The sissy bar bag is so huge I've never needed the saddlebags. As you can see in the picture, I mount it backwards and use it as a backrest.

Bike is located in Champaign, IL.



$5300

You can reach me via PM or stupid doo doo head at the gmail for more info.

I'm selling a single ASV BRC520-K Standard Brake C5 Sport Motorcycle Lever it's all black with a red adjustment knob.

This lever fits a TON of bikes and comes in the plastic bag that the factory shipped it to me in with all the spare parts. It even has ASV stickers in the bag.

The cheapest I could find this was on Amazon for $112 + shipping. I'm asking $80 shipped in the US, UK goons talk to me and we can work something out. It will go out the day after payment is received, Paypal only. I modified the clutch lever of this set for my DRZ and I absolutely love it.

Selling some Fieldsheer mesh pants that I bought last year but never ended up wearing because they're too small for me. Only worn a couple times. $75 shipped?

I'm tall but these pants weren't tall enough. My other pair of motorcycle pants that fit me well are 36x35. These are size 34 - they're very adjustable in the waist so they fit me fine there, but the legs are too short and the knee armor sat too high. If you have an inseam of around 32 they should be fine.



They have hard plastic knee armor with padding around them.



Boot zippers



Adjustable thigh snaps (velcro adjusters for the calves too, not pictured)



Hip armor is just foam but hey better than nothing!



The non-armored pants are very meshy and flowed a ton of air.



edit: forgot to mention these come with a zip in quilted liner thing that looks decently warm, never tried it out.

For regular pants I'm a 34 in the waist - I just tried putting these pants on and there's a couple inches of stretch needed in the elastic for them to fit for me, so I think they could work for you, especially if you wore them over shorts. Beyond being mostly made of an elastic material, the waist does have adjustable straps to tighten it down too.

I need to somehow get a hold of a multimeter so I can pin out my headlight wiring and install a brighter front end. But I also need to finish the Thieves Guild quest line so I can restore order and honor to the underworld of Riften.

They're not bad at all. Still the powerband of a v-twin so it's completely manageable, even in the lower gears. Really the only differences are in 60-100 and torque wheelies. An SV650 or 650r will still hit 60 in under 4 seconds

Mine makes about 120 at the wheel, so it can get crazy, but its not peaky at all and its decently hefty. Its certainly still less crazy than a modern 1000cc supersport. Its about on par with a 600 supersport, with a lot more torque.

I rode my 500 for about four years and was about ready for an upgrade, but I haven't been on a bike in about two years, so I'm a little apprehensive about jumping onto something too powerful before getting my "sea legs" back.

After making my post, I looked online and see used engines going for around $500-700, so I think I'm going to go that route. Now just a to make sure which model years are compatible with my frame.

Tour Master Flex pants - size S



These pants are amazing. They're the jack of all trades. Great in super hot weather (I used them over summer when I was riding in Dallas), and great in cold weather with the liners. I'm selling them because they're 1 size too small for me (I needed medium talls). They're $180 shipped pretty much everywhere online, so I'm asking $140 shipped.

These are still available! Price dropped to $130. They're perfect for summer riding!

As long as the thermal liner isn't in, yeah. I've actually used them as overpants for my jeans lots. They'd fit you perfectly if you normally wear a 31x31.

I still have my Alpinestars SP-2's in large (which are by every account closer to medium/large) they retail for 100 I'm selling for 50+shipping. Excellent gloves, I tried them and I let my uncle use them for a little bit too, but they were just a bit too small for both of us. Pics reflect the wear on the rubber wrist pads from grabbing handles and the sp-2 and alpinestars rubber logos are wearing off too, they weren't put on with anything it seems. The velcro strap is really cool, it can either go tight to your wrist or over your jacket sleeve. Really cool design, and only 1 strap per glove.




I REALLY wish I fit these, they are leagues above the Cycle Gear gloves I settled for. I also wouldn't mind trading these+cash for some riding pants in 32x32.

They are not a winter glove, they are your everyday glove, they are slightly perfed. I have not ridden in the summer yet, so IDK how they would be in 90+ degrees, but temp wise they were great in 60-80. I'm in 90501 (Torrance, CA)

I have a pair that I commute in whenever the temp is about 65 or so. They flow a pretty good amount of air and are comfortable up to 90-95 degrees but above that nothing is comfortable.

I'm also selling these Scorpion Savannah pants, size "XXL" which is actually about a 10. They're really great, just not my style, which might be obvious because I spent a lot of time de-girlifying them. I don't know why it's so hard for manufacturers to make something femme without gluing rhinestones all over it. So, de-rhinestoned, and I darkened two of the flowers with permanent marker. Great pants though; protection's good, has a winter liner, great cinching straps on the thighs, and they fit like a pair of jeans. Let's say $90+shipping.

Money, Clothes, and Hoes;
All a Nigga Knows

Hey guys

I am looking to buy a motorcycle in/around hollywood, california. My budget is around $1500, but can go up by a few hundred dollars for the right bike. Looking for something older, 60's-70's, I like the cafe racer style, and would like something around a 350-500, but okay with going a bit larger (my last bike was a 78 CB550). However, I am pretty open with what I am looking for. I am okay with a project, and something that needs some work is okay with me, as long as it runs (it doesn't have to run well).

If you have something in this price range, email me at eazyefromli@gmail.com, or PM me on here.

Thanks!

I am interested in these but had some bills come up this month. If you still have them, I'd be interested in getting a bit more information from you about them (and hopefully buying them from you) in ~10 days when I get paid again. If you get someone else that can send the money immediately then please don't hold onto them for me. Just didn't want to leave you hanging.
