Depends on how you guys ride tbh, today is my first day on the street, so in not sure going out on cruise night is a really good idea

    By the way that's a nice gsxr600 you got there, I've got a 750 of the same model years as that one.

      We could meet up and split off eventually. I'm always down for a calm cruise, plus cops are always out in full force so it's not like you'd want to be doing anything fun for anything more than a second or two haha

            Your asking the wrong guy cause I don't hang around anywhere, I ride around all the time. I've seen a few people at Tim's main where the Harley guys hang out. I've also heard that the sport bikes hang out at 7 eleven on corydon and arbuthnot but I've never seen any there when I pass by it.

                Hey guys, quick question for ya, do you think this is my brake light or running light? I just bought the bike and realized the light didn't change when I hit the brakes. I disconnected the switch at the front brake and played with the linkage that's mounted on the rear brake and I can't make the light go dim or brighter, any suggestions?

                                Picked up a project bike and need some tires. Where's a good place/website to get tires?

                                  Fortnine is good, if you to buy local Capitol has always been good to me. You missed their tire sale though, I picked up Michelin pilots for $323.

                                  What kind of bike did you get?

                                    Thanks.  I picked up a 82 Honda vf750 sabre. Got it for a really good price running and rideable.  Plan to do a cafe/brat style build over the winter.

                                      Sounds awesome man! I've been watching kijiji for some sort of bike that will be cheap to insure but I can still make cool. Be sure to post some pics of your progress!

                                            I think it is, It's the TS which I think was the dual sport version compared to the TC which was trail only. Not 100% though. Not super familiar with the old suzuki bikes.
