Name:Bikes are in chronological riding order. I hope to keep updating it with more bikes.
Suzuki TU-250X Rode August 3 2013 Too Cool Motorcycle School First bike I ever rode. Honda CBR 250R Rode August 4 2013 Too Cool Motorcycle School Second bike I ever rode. Kawasaki EX250 Ninja Rode August 4 2013 Too Cool Motorcycle School Third bike I ever rode. Rode for the on-road portion of the class and for the test prep. Rode similar for road test. Yamaha XT250 Rode August 4 2013 Too Cool Motorcycle School Briefly rode in the parking lot. Hard seat. Seemed tall at the time. 2003 Suzuki SV650S Owned 2014-2015 Calgary First bike I owned. Bought in winter of 2014, rode until spring of 2015. Excellent starting bike. Very comfortable. Occasional keeping running when wet suspect coil was on way out. Great handling. Rode to work almost every day summer 2014. Would buy again for a track bike. 2008 GSX-650F Rode 2014-2015 Calgary Dad's first bike. Kawasaki KLR650 Rode December 26 2014 Hawaii Aventure Rentals Fun bike. Very vibratey. Felt tall. Seat very hard (and it was an aftermarket seat!)Analog gauges. No fuel indicator. Likes to be ridden in low revs. Suzuki V-Strom DL-650 December 26 2014 Hawaii Adventure Rentals Rode in Hawaii as well with the KLR. Much smoother. Perfect bike for cruising Hawaii. 1975 A100 Owned 2015-Present Calgary Project bike. Only ridden around the block. Dad used to have one. 2008 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 Owned 2015-Present Calgary Third bike I owned. Excellent tourer. Adequate on the dirt. Wouldn't take it on much more than a gravel road but did do off road academy with Too Cool. Rode to San Fran and discovered that this is the PERFECT bike for a trip like that. Super comfortable. Does everything pretty well. 2012 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 2015 Calgary Dad's second bike. 2016 Harley Davidson Sportster Iron 883 Summer 2015 Test Our Metal at Kane's Harley Davidson This was a sportster with mid-controls. Very narrow tank with nowhere to grip with knees. Mid controls put my knees around my ears. Fun to ride a real Harley though. All low end power. Feels sluggish. 2016 Harley Davidson Dyna Fat Bob Summer 2015 Test Our Metal at Kane's Harley Davidson Way more comfy (and way cooler) than the Iron 883. Big ass tank. Matte black and red. Very cool. Forward controls made the bike seem a lot less cramped then the sporster. Out of the 2, this is what I'd buy. Yamaha ttr125 Summer 2015 Taste the Dirt Fun. Very small and hard to stand up on but a good learning platform. Yamaha ttr230 Summer 2015 Taste the Dirt Funner. Bigger than the 125 in stature. More power.
