I get the following error message when I visit OCMOTO by going to http://www.ocmoto.com/.

Short answer: If you're after power (and sound) boost for an otherwise stock bike, 100% worth it if you remap your fueling to accommodate the change.

For lame people like me, who like that quiet stock exhaust, not so worth it.

CycleGear sells mostly Chinese junk that costs them $10 and they charge $150. They're doing fine because they primarily retail junk equipment.

They made a niche for themselves, serving the broke, first time, or otherwise unknowledgeable rider.

Yes, they technically carry the whole line that RevZilla does, but if you ask their executives they'd rather sell you a house brand item than anything else.

You forget, while they cater to newbies, and the unknowing with their house brands, they also carry super high-end A*, Dainese, Arai, and Shoei gear.  Nothing in the middle for average Joe's like me...  :26:

This has absolutely been my experience. The sizing in the premium brands is usually limited, too. Especially in the larger sizes.. ahem.

Cycle gear seems to be opening new stores .
It must be bad poor management

Where can I find the worst vendor who doesn't respect board rules at all?

MOTO-D

Bend over, and take the MOTO-D.. The D is for Douche-bag!

Your blatant advertising is still unwanted. At least place it in the correct forum: http://ocmoto.com/index.php/board,89.0.html

Weather should be top notch this Sunday.

The surest way to attract younger riders into the fold is to give them room in their paychecks to afford bikes and gear in the first place.  Start by lowering rent.  That's not going to happen any time soon in California.  If they can't afford rent they sure as heck ain't going to afford a bike payment.  Most folks in their early 20's probably take home $3k/mo or less if that.  If half that goes to rent and car payment, well, not much left for anything else.  Unlike 20 years ago, today's young adults spend a lot more on their Iphones, cars, & rent.

Loving the photos and such, as always.  :1:

While I hate thieves, I don't think the rights of individuals should be violated in order to help solve a crime.  Procedures are meant to be followed and should not be bypassed by lazy detectives/police officers.  I doubt the SCOTUS will weigh in favor of these types of searches as this will open a "can of worms" in relation to other less severe crimes such as citing for having an out of state motorcycle, equipment violations, etc.

^ That sums it up

Everybody will have different rates depending on the zip code you live in, your driving record, number of vehicles you have, whether you're married or not, garage parking, it can also vary amongst occupations, etc.  So asking what someone pays will prove little to nothing.  I shop every time at renewal and the Auto Club is always the cheapest, and they have great claims service.  Next pricier option was Geico and Progressive has always been the highest.  YMMV

AAA here also. I combine multiple policies etc and always come out cheaper than anyone else.

Adding renters insurance actually saved me money by a notable amount. Probably helps I have 6 bikes and 2 cars on the policy :o

This is my last weekend dealing with moving so.. next run I'll be in for sure.

Other than that, just keeping up-to-date with SMF versions would be a plus (security.) I know that's made difficult with the event plugin that's used; there wasn't an updated version last I checked.

my understanding is we wrote that event/thread plugin ourselves and it's what kept us from updating.

It's a (well.. was. inactive at this time) publicly available plugin. I tracked down the old version on a test install, and tried to work on updating it. It had too many issues with the new version that would require nearly a full re-write to address.

Edit: I did find a similar plugin and was able to implement similar functionality after some modification, though.

The only thing I'd like is a "Like" button.

I love how they stop at the NR @ the end. I hate to say it, but I'd take that over any bike they presented. :)

The main downside of nakeds to me is just lack of wind protection. Seeing as you've put a ton of mileage on your Monster, maybe I'm just a wimp.

For a daily rider/commuter, hands down the naked over a 600 SS though. There are other options I'd prefer but that's not what this video was about.

Still rockin my summer gloves.

It was pretty cold tonight, though. Maybe I should get the OE heated grips for the new VFRs...

Bikes For Sale / Re: FS 2007 Yamaha R1 $5299

You almost have to give away a used bike nowadays especially if it has a lot of miles. My Ď07 VFR800 with 52k miles is probably worth about $1500 if I wanted to sell it quick. $2000 if I were patient and even then thatís reaching. Iím better off trading it in.

2k-2250 imo.

My 2002/38k mi VFR sold like a hot cake for 2k.

I think HD has the right take on it; teach more people to ride.

Manufacturers should provide free MSF (or whatever it's called now) courses to get people over the hurdle. Yes that's an investment by them, but it's investing in future sales more than anything.

I mean shoot, if you're not a rider and you learn about a free weekend to learn to ride, on someone else's motorcycle... sounds like a winner to me.
