They are "required" for bikes that came with them from the factory. That bike was a factory dual sport so it has them. My area doesn't have inspections though so you can pretty much get away without them on any bike unless you piss off cops and give them a reason to want to harass you.

Personally, I think you should have them if you spend a lot of time on the street though. Luckily I use my dirt bike mainly for dirt and save street riding for my street bikes.

>>19975365

Permit is lightning fast. License is quick if you're willing to jump straight into the test. It's not super difficult but it's easy to fail. You can always take the 2 day course which is basically practice for the test, you go through all the individual events a bunch.

MSF allows you to take the beginner course and test on their bikes.
>>
>>19975434

Most do, if not all. You take it through the DMV. My buddy had to do his out in town because the military one had no spots open for months, they provided CB300Fs for anyone without their own bike. The military one had little 250 Vstars.
>>
>>19975437
>>19975438
sounds like a great system to me! Thanks again.
>>
>>19975455
Some states even allow you to earn your license WHILE taking the MSF course. In MO for example if you attend the 2 day course and do satisfactorily on the exercises you get a voucher for both the written and skills test. Just take it to the DMV and instant license.

New rider here, got about a month of riding in and getting a bit more comfortable with it. I live on the city outskirts and my parents live on a rural highway

One thing that still gets me anxiety is turning left into a driveway/street from a busy rural highway. Any tips here? The shoulders are often loose gravel. I feel like a sitting duck sometimes on these roads and hug the center as much as I can to wait for a clearing. Not sure if other bikers just go until they can safely turn around and make a right into the side street/driveway.

I've looked all over youtube and re-read the safety course booklet but don't find anything mentioned about this
>>
>>19975511

i wouldnt pay more than $200 for that sorry excuse for a bike.
>>
>>19975511
I don't see anything too "good" about it. It seems like it's in fair shape at best. If you go see it I would start out offering 500 to start.
>>
>>19975517
No MSF in my state. We have a different privately run program. Its not required by the state. The only requirement is a 20 question test for a learners permit ($12) and a $20 run through a road course for turns and brakes and such that takes 5 minutes and no one gives a shit.
>>
>>19975538
What state is that?
>>
>>19975517
Whether the course is equivalent to the state testing requirements vary according to your state laws. Some states accept the MSF course as a direct substitute, some only accept it as a practical skill substitute, and I think some states don't accept it at all.

Yeah it's a bad situation. I almost got rear-ended when turning off the a rural highway yesterday. Looked in my mirrors and saw the SUV behind me wasn't slowing down, so I just turned off going a little faster and sooner than I normally would to make sure I got out of the way.

Keep an eye in your mirrors if there are people behind you. As you go down that road try to distance yourself from cars behind you. So if you are at the back of a group of cars, just stay there until you turn off. If you are in the middle of a group of cars, try to pass and speed ahead to get a big buffer zone before you turn off. If you're stuck in a group with cars behind you, then just signal way ahead of time and flash your brake lights to make it obvious you are turning.

You'll probably just have to be quick about it. How comfortable are you leaning? You understand countersteering?

>>
>>19975591
Thanks, that's my plan usually. Just not sure if I was being overly cautious by saying fuck it and just going up further to turn somewhere easier and loop back for a right turn on a busy day
>>
>>19975630
Yeah that's a good idea if you can spare the time, especially if there is heavy traffic and you would have to be a sitting duck in the middle of the lane for a while.
>>
>>19975605
Turning is fine (counter-steering), its more so the situation where I've got a left turn coming up with traffic not too far behind me, then when coming up for the left the oncoming lane is just too busy forcing me to wait.

I could weave through if there are some gaps sure (in some cases, most rural driveways are gravel so can't go too quick)
>>
>>19975638
Thanks
>>
>>19975659
another alternative is to just pull over onto the shoulder on the right and wait for a gap in both lanes
>>
>>19975685
I've wondered that, how slow would you have to drop down to, before making contact onto a gravel shoulder?

Wtf happened to me guys, I'm scared as fuck now. I'm fine piloting the bike, just like old times. When I'm off it though the knowledge that I'm a biker once again and all the shit that can go wrong is fucking with me mentally.
It's fucking pathetic, but the nostalgia was definitely better than actually being on a bike. Jesus. Even though I'm having fun while on the road I can't help but shake the feeling "I've made a terrible mistake"

I'm still relatively new. I get off the bike just fine, but that corner is a sharp left immediately after a sharp right; shifting all the way from one side to the other very quickly is something I definitely have to work on.

It definitely didn't cost 30k either, lmao. 24k out the door.

I like to think that I ride my bike pretty hard for my skill level, but I slightly hold back because it's expensive and my only form of transportation. Would like to pick up a cheap bike to really wring out on the track without worrying too much about binning it, but I'm a faggot and want to keep it Italian. Will probably pick up a 749 or 748 on the cheap and make it a dedicated track bike.

I don't understand the riding season thing. Sure, if there's snow on the road and you have street tires, I wouldn't ride either, but we only get that like 2 weeks in the entire year, the rest of the time the roads are clear and you can ride perfectly normally.

There's really not many things that have changed in the last 20 years that matter if your not in the top 5% of skilled riders, and besides things breaking is perfectly normal on dirtbikes, it would be a far cheaper option to preemptively replace anything you think could have worn out than to buy a whole new bike.

Anyway bikes do idle pretty rough but idle speed for bikes is turned up to around 1250rpm usually so it isn't as noticeable

Not amazing, but certainly not bad. You won't bore of it too soon because it actually has 40hp and on a small bike, that's plenty for fun commutes and weekend getaways.

they are based on the cb125r that weighs 126 kg/277 pounds

I doubt the ADV lookin one is that light.
Also. A 125 should never be over 250lbs. And even thats insanely heavy.

That’s like 40 lbs more than the grom sooooo no

How much more? And what is the use of it? Because you can’t squeeze enough power out of a four stroke 125 for it to not be painfully slow anyway at that weight.

Can you guys recommend a winter riding glove? So far when I layer my shirts, and have some fleece lined pants, the only thing that gets cold are my fingers and I know they're more oriented for summer riding. Unsure what brands are good and what will be fine for 40-50 degree weather. I don't have wind guards on my bars either. Not too interested in installing heated grips unless thats the only choice.

Was considering these. The $30 chinese specials are tempting, but after a sprinkling of reviews saying 50mph below 55F, they're not great. That's what makes me wanna spend more (double) on something that doesn't have a single negative review regarding the temps.
>>
>>19978318
Honestly, once it gets cold out its really hard to keep your hands warm without having some kind of heated gear or hand guards. Before I got the heated grips on my Street Twin I had to use a set of Klim Adventure gloves for anything under 50 degrees, now I can wear my Rev'it Summit 2 gloves down to 40-ish. You might be able to swing some glove liners, if your current gloves are big enough.

if you have a price range set, I would recommend looking at Revzilla for other options in that price range. Amazon is really shitty for trying to find something that isn't Chinesium

at -20 I would be worried about how much grip the bike has.
at 60mph in 0 degrees ambient temp, it will feel like -33 degrees according to the weather service. I would imagine you would want a full windshield, grip mittens and as much heated gear as you can lay your hands on.

They're probably right around 15hp like most over full size 125s, although the CB125R is only 13hp. The Grom has like 9hp, similar to something like a 125 pit bike. I'm guessing the difference is down to air vs. liquid cooling.

buy a bike with a slipper clutch
>>
>>19978318
Heated grips man.
Buy a cheap throttle tube first tho.
>>
>>19978760
rev matching is overreving before dropping a cog? Is there a point in rev matching if you keep the clutch depressed while dropping several gears?
>>
>>19978737
Like mentioned by >>19978714
, slow down in a higher gear and downshift later (but before coming to a complete stop).

If you're not American, you can always go for a good 2-stroke bike. They have literally no engine braking. Us Europeeons are really neglecting the fact that we can still legally squat around on mad bikes like RD500 and RG500
>>
>>19978772
Heated jacket and gloves would do more for me.

>>19978777
won't that kill the two stroke?

>>19978777
>Europeeons are really neglecting the fact that we can still legally squat around on mad bikes like RD500 and RG500
You can in America too. As long as the bike matched the emissions requirements when it was originally made.
>>
In witchita falls over halfway through my trip.
>>
>>19978794
are you taking highways the whole way?
>>
>>19978782
Well it depends; you should avoid coasting to a stop in a low gear on high revs, but its not like you have to engage the clutch while braking.
I used to stay on the trottle a tiny bit under braking on my RD350 because I was paranoid of lockup, but I've since seen tons of track videos where they engine-brake the everloving shit out of them.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNVqcFvoRq4
>>
>>19978697
>>19978737
the smoothest way to stop is:
>let of the throttle
>shift down when the rpm is low
>repeat until stop.

The engine braking is "violent" because motorcycle operate in high rpm, you will have violent engine braking in cars if you let of the gas at 6k rpm
>>
>>19978784

Did they ever sell the 500s in the US though? I've always had the impression that they didn't, and that you cannot import them for some reason?
>>
>>19978801
Yes, I'm fucking cold and miserable and going 2 extra hours on this trip would drive me fucking insane

>>
>>19978822
They didn't sell them there but they've been imported and you can buy them if you have the money.
>>
>>19978841
for me, dropping down to about 55 as opposed to 70-80 helps a lot with staying warm. Plus taking interesting roads makes more enjoyable and makes it seem less long.
>>
>Americans

The official massachusetts title registry website says the title for this one motorcycle is clean, but a third party website (nicb.org), lists it as total loss/salvage.

I understand where the friction zone begins because that's when the bike engine power starts making it through the transmission and to the wheels and you begin to roll forward.
