My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Just what kind of drink would that be Eric?
Another shot of courage, or one for the road? :icon_rofl:
Just water. I prefer not to get hurt by my own stupidity.

Ive always like the dual sport bikes but most have too much suspension for my short legs, A rebel/nighthawk/shadow would be about right for me, but theres the deer factor around here. dont want to meet one while on a bike, thats for sure!

A smaller dual sport like a 250 would probably be decent for you. Or a 450 supermoto style bike with the smaller wheels.

650s are generally pretty tall bikes. I rode my tattoo guys honda xr650 a few years ago and iirc I had to tip toe the thing and I'm 6'2.

Most deer collisions on a bike happen after dark.. if your "old" like I am and don't go anywhere after 4pm you'd probably be alright lol.

Wake up way too early, don't ride motorcycle.

Sleep in, ride motorcycle.


Only one of those options is acceptable 😋

It’s at about $5.60 for 93. Still absolutely terrible, it was almost $6 about a month ago.
