    Does anyone here ride a motorcycle?

    I've always wanted to get one... and this warm weather we had in NE today reminded me of that. Problem is, i've heard that the crotch rocket type of bike i want isnt suited to tall guys. I'm 6'5"... so that might be a problem.

    Does anyone here ride? Any advice on what bikes are best for tall riders? I really like the Ducati Monster S4...

    I ride a Yamaha Virago 920. Once you ride a motorcycle, any other mode of transportation sucks.

    Well, mine has two wheels and a motor but I wouldn't call it a motorcycle.

    When I do upgrade, I think I'm gonna go for a sport cruiser, maybe a BMW.
    Cool

    I'd agree that Harley's look great and sound awesome, but they aren't very dependable, it seems. I have a few friends with Harley's and they are always breaking down, or in the shop, while I'm cruising along with my piece of crap. They are a nice bike to look at though.

    Also, the styling of the newer bikes is catching up to Harley. I really like the Marauder.....sweeeeeet.

    Mine has over 20,000 miles and runs fine. But I will say, on one trip to texas it cost me $600 US to get it fixed and get back home.

    My uncle has one that has over 130,000 miles on it and has never broke down.

    I just ordered a new one and should have it today. The old one has taken it's share of licks and I felt it was time to replace it.

    I ride, I wish I could afford a Harley but that's not possible right now. I am starting out with a Honda Sabre.

    As long as your riding it doesn't matter what you are on. You will have fun anyway.

    Crotch rockets usually sit higher so they are better for taller guys, you will be able to touch the ground with both feet when stopped. I can hardly touch ground on a SPORTY.

    Nice ride, what exhaust do you have and why did you go with the 2 into 1?
