I used Beacon one year then C+ the next for comprehensive. Beacon was $700 C+ was $500 with double the gear coverage and 2 mil coverage compared to beacons 1 mil. Going into my 7th year riding and sitting at $900 a year for the liability coverage. So yah, same price at $1400 total per year with really solid coverage. I don't bother with Modern. Every time i've called with a question the owner/manager of Modern just gives me a headache. What are you riding these days?
also with beacon, I have another 05 gsxr 1000. My last one was the black se with marchesinis, new owner has it up to 250hp. Iím not going as nuts with this one.

No, I laughed at just how cheap it was.

I really love this bike. No joke, I just got back from a long *** 270 mile ride today on the illinois river. Aside from a small amount of saddle soreness and a little upper back soreness (helmet) I'm doing great. Bike has loads of power and has an attitude that resembles that of muscle, has loads of torque from 2000 rpm all the way to the rev limiter and really makes you hang on tight. Bike also corners wickedly, I've never felt something so sharp and crisp going through fast curves.Plus, I **** you not this bike turns heads everywhere. No one paid attention to my sportster or bright red R3, but I've gotten 4 comments on it in person in only two weeks of riding. I know its a love/hate look, but the people that do love it (like me) really just stare. Honestly I could talk for ages about the greatness of this bike but I'm sure it would bore you guys. 10/10 scooter.

Buell’s have a sense of presence all their own, my man. Also, you know I’m an enormous fan of the brand.

You were so right. To be honest i was skeptical at first about the power and speed. I was wanting something as fast as a 600 and i felt like i would be making a compromise by getting the buell. I was pleasantly suprised. Yeah its not a 155mph bike like the 600s i was looking at but they can still max over 140 and can hang with the inline 4s up to 100. Plus i dont have to downshift to pass or anything

Yesterday i found what was probably the only road in all of illinois that is straight, flat, wide open, and completely smooth fresh pavement. I hit 120 fairly easily and it was super smooth at that speed but i realized it can be a bit scary, i mean really whats the point of going over 100mph on the street anyway? Most of your fun is gonna be 0-100 in the real world anyway, and the incredible thrust you get from the big v twin in any gear at any speed is incredibly addicting

155 is cool and all, but so is being able to power wheelie in 4th.

I may end up buying an 1125R, I adore the Rotax Helicon motor.

I can't really get on board with the looks with that thing, but I definitely appreciate their speed capabilities

If you can look past the radiator scoops it’s pretty cool.

Thanks, already getting bombarded by people in the streets that are stoked on the bike. I've put about 200 miles so far. The quickshifter is unreal fun. I do however need to adjust it maybe 1-2 mm. The shift from 1st to 2nd isn't perfectly smooth. A little bit of a harder shift compared to the other gears when it should be buttery smooth.

Rode to work for the first time in months. In fact, I haven't ridden in several months. Felt good.

Parked next to my twin. One model year newer, since it has the blue frame. Same bike/specs though.



He has the nice side pannier/cases too. Crazy expensive. I only have the top case.



Can't really split lanes as easy with those huge things.



These two bikes have been sitting here collecting dust for about 2 years now. I asked the security guy about it and they said it wasn't worth the cost to tow them since there was some legal loophole about bikes. Don't know the details. But he said they're just letting them sit because it doesn't really affect available parking in the deck.

Don't know the left one, but the right one is a KTM 390. I remember when the guy got it. Was brand new. Now front tire is flat and it hasn't moved in 2 years. Sad.



I didn't write it. The words were here for at least 6-8 months.

Suspension travel. They're basically like dualsport bikes but you can also tour long distances with them.

But in reality, they're not THAT tall. A lot of that is electronics, gas tank, crash bars, windshield, and other creature comforts when cruising long distances.

Google says:
R3 seat height - 30.7"
R6/R1 seat height - 33.7"

BMW R1200GS seat height - 33"
BMW R1200GS Adventure seat height - 35.2" (but adjustable down to 33.5")

So lols, my bike's seat height is lower than an R6/R1.

There are generally stories behind bikes that sit like that. Maybe a cut license, who knows.

Yesterday I got my first real good ride in. Went up sea to sky highway since the weather was beautiful out. Beforehand I adjusted the shift rod on the quick shifter 1mm longer and 1 tooth on the spindle. I noticed in one of the pictures above it is slightly out of alignment. The bike NOW feels like it should, buttery smooth up and down. Absolute blast riding with that quick shift.

How hard is it to install a quickshift? I was considering one for my buell. I think it needs an ignition cut wire, and what else?

To be honest, it is someone who probably works in my company.

We have a wide demographic of employees due to the nature of our industry and it is somewhat common for police to just come in and arrest people while they're working. So if they have a car/motorcycle/whatever it'll just sit there. It has happened before.
