2008 CBR1000RR (Plus my Experience on an earlier Model)
Posted Monday, October 22, 2007

"In 2008 Honda reinforces a long-standing legacy of creating breathtaking breakthroughs in the liter bike class. The all-new CBR1000RR establishes a higher standard for weight reduction and compact, centralized mass to produce the pinnacle of sportbike performance and rideability." Allen: I bet you're wondering, why post about a motorcycle (maybe not)? We at 62mph like to review all thing motorized. I'd put a post about a go-ped if it could do 200 mph, but mostly because both Austin and I ride. This is a gorgeous motorcycle. I picked the color for the picture that I liked but there are many options including a black/ metallic gray combo that will cost you extra because only 500 are going to be produced. I can only imagine that this bike like its predecessor packs some serious...
 
Want To Ride?
Posted Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Interested in learning to ride? Well, it is one of the greatest pleasures that I have found. I started on the first model year of this motorcycle. It is a...Suzuki GS500 and it is one of the best beginner motorcycles out there. I had just graduated high school and was looking for an adventure so I decided that I would do motorcycle school. Which is the best way to start to ride because they teach you everything you need to know from how to operate the bike, avoid accidents, proper braking and if you get good at riding they have a stunt course as well. When you're done with your eduaction from the school they give you a certificate for your motorcycle endorsement and WHAM, BAM, thank you MAAM, you're good to go. Not to mention, you get to screw up their equipment so you don't have...
 
Want To Ride? (Alternative Version)
Posted Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Allen posted about how great his bike was and all of that. I decided that rather than commenting on what he had to say, I could say the same thing only much different. I have always had a fondness for motorcycles, though I had never really ridden one until I was just turning 21. I did have a 50cc Italian scooter, but it didn't even have a clutch so I don't really count it as a proper motorcycle. (Though I did love it and would like to fix it up one of these days) My problem was that I didn't have the slightest clue about how a motorcycle functioned. I found out from Allen that there was a class, and we had gotten a bit of money for Christmas, so I took the MSF class. MSF was great. If you are thinking about riding, I would highly recommend it. Many people think it isn't necessary,...
 
In The Niche - Motorcycles
Posted Thursday, November 8, 2007

If you have been following any of the blogs up to this point you know I'm very particular about what I like. It doesn't mean that I don't like other motorcycles or cars that don't meet particular requirements. For instance, I really like the Mini Cooper even though it is front wheel drive it is rated in my top ten out of all the cars I have driven. It is that I have high regard for vehicles that meet my stringent requirements. In other words they are perfect for me. I thought I would write this one on some motorcycles that I find meet my requirements. First off is the best motorcycle that I have ever ridden. The Suzuki SV650. This bike is the most versatile, under rated and all around great bike on the planet. They make everything for them. I'm not joking about that either....
 
Nissan Rogue First Impressions
Posted Wednesday, November 28, 2007

Recently I won a free oil change from the local Nissan dealership in a free raffle at a nursing home. Normally I change my own oil, but it gave me a reason to hang out at the dealership for an hour and take a look at the new Nissan Rogue compact SUV. The Rogue has not been as well received by the critics as Nissan probably would have hoped, but the sales numbers are showing the the public loves it, and this is not surprising on both sides. The Rogue basically looks like a small Murano, which to me is a good thing. I would say that for its class it is the best looking small SUV/crossover out there. In comparison to the Toyota Rav4, Honda CRV, and Suzuki Grand Vitara the Rogue is a work of art. I am not crazy about the styling of any of these vehicles mostly due to their wide rear ends. The...
 
I'll Take The Red Pill
Posted Thursday, December 13, 2007

"Kizashi!" "Gesundheit!" That was the response I got when I told Austin about this Suzuki Concept I saw. Suzuki is thinking about putting out a new sedan/wagon and I think it looks awesome. It reminds me of the matrix, you know, the red pill that Neo took to get to the real world. I mean that in a good way. The Kizashi, that is its actual name, looks so refined but still has the sporting look about it that it might actually please a range of people. The headlights trail down on the grill giving spider like fangs. Kind of scary, actually. The specs I found indicated that it would be All Wheel Drive (AWD) and powered by a 2.0 L turbo diesel, but being a concept means nothing is set in stone (including production). I wouldn't mind seeing it with a similar...
 
Its Good to "B-King"
Posted Friday, December 28, 2007

Suzuki is leading the way in the new street motorcycles that it is releasing for 2008, and it has one of the most versatile line-ups in the industry. One of the newest additions is the "B-King" a naked sport/standard motorcycle that takes the crown on two fronts. The first is speed. This motorcycle has been built with the legendary Hayabusa 1340cc engine. Making this the fastest, naked bike on the planet. The engine has been re-tuned slightly so as not to take away from the Hayabusa's title of fastest production motorcycle. In addition to the engine, the "King" is equipped with typical Hayabusa components like inverted front forks, adjustable rear suspension, and front and rear disc brakes making it not very light at 520 lbs, dry. Another thing that is not so light is the...
