Motorcycle thefts are on the rise, and California, for the second year in a row, is the top state for stolen bikes.The annual theft report from the National Insurance Crime Bureau shows bike thefts rose 2% nationally in 2016. A total of 46,467 motorc...
Matt FredendallI always thought reports like these were misleading without knowing how many registered motorcycles there are. With motorcycling becoming more and more popular - it makes sense that if the number of registered vehicles goes up, theft would also increase. More bikes - more opportunity for theft, right?

Donald ButlerDuh, California has far and away the most bikes owned, surprise Florida is second, followed by Texas. Amazing, the states with the most bikes have the most thefts.
Evan KayFor anybody unsure of whether "Full Grain Microfibre" (Sidi's spelling) is durable, Alpinestars has been making their roadrace boots with this ("Lorica") for over 20 years. Anecdotally, I can attest to the fact that it is extremely durable(they last for many years) and holds up even after multiple on-track crashes. Why not the racing suits? The stuff is too heavy, thick and inflexible for that, but it works great for the boots. Just speculating, but because it is synthetic, it may also be easier to mold the complex curves of a boot more easily than with panels of leather (which then requires more cutting and sewing making it more expensive, too).
Out for a ride on the motorcycle, came across this tree that came down and hanging on the electric wires a couple of minutes before I got there! Moral of the story: be prepared for anything out there! ... See MoreSee Less
Tawnya KohrdtHave I missed the reviews you have posted of women's gear? I haven't seen any... Women ride and need to see reviews of their products too. I would be happy to help you! Some gear is unisex, and honestly that's awesome. But men's pants don't fit my hourglass shape, honestly neither do most of the women's pants I have spent hours trying on. Most women I have spoken to would like something besides pink or purple in jackets and helmets. Manufacturers need to have the pressure of reviews to see their products flaws and successes. If you need women to review products, contact me. If not, let's get those reviews posted.
John LaRockActually those Honda's were as fast and powerful as British and American bikes twice their size and as reliable as German bikes twice their cost.
Today we view a 300 cc machine as tiny and perhaps only suitable for off road or city use, back then they were mid sized bikes and quite capable of running at highway speeds for days on end.
Though Persig was wise enough to stick to mostly the back roads where all the interesting things are.

Gort FastburnerIIRC that was a Honda 305 "Dream" Back in the day, even 2-up, its wasn't fast. But, It was solid, smooth and very reliable for its time. It was designed to be maintainable. And.......it didn't leak. :) Ride-on.
