Loud Exhaust=noticed. Noticed=not dead!
i have checked out a Honda Shadow VLX 600 it sounded really good too. and i'm sure both will last a very long time.

then the reality of me not even knowing how to ride one sinks in, i should probably start off with something basic. like a 250 type.

oh btw, i painted my stock 16s white like you guys suggested. i like the look, now i just need mud flaps to add to the rally look.

loud exhaust=distraction lol anyway....

Go take a motorcycle class. Get your license and go find a honda shadow 250. Or a ninja 250 whatever. My boss had a shadow 250 and said it was a great starter bike. Theyre under 1k as well.

Mine was a failure.... Ended up being screwed. When I can try it again I will look for a shadow and do it right.

edit: apparently nighthawk and rebel are similar too.

edit again: hmm.... y'know maybe I will rebuild that thing after all. at least THAT would make it desirable to sell. and I DO still like it anyway.

i would go with the rebel if i got a 250.
there is this class the general manager here recommended, i guess it's 4-6 weeks long on the weekends and at the end they give you your license.

SLCC offers a class too. That's where my roommates girlfriend went to get her license. I don't think you have to be a student. So it might be worth looking into. And I think it's cheaper than the class you mentioned plus they still give you your license.

Agreed! Ya they can be kind of distracting like mike said but it's so much better for people to be able to hear you. I can't even count the times my roommate told me he wish he would've put an exhaust on his CBR600 due to the drivers on Utah roads.

Mark you also might like the Xterra's too. I really do like them but I want a V8.

btw about the xterras and Im warning you now. Replace the fuel pump when you have to and make sure to change the sending unit with it. We had one in the shop for a few weeks trying to figure out why it would just randomly shut off. Then another one (same color) came in. Same problem. Finally replaced the sending unit with it and wow no more issues.

The xterras look pretty mean all lifted and stuff. Might be worth checking out.
