    so whats so special about arkansas anyway? I saw that you went there for your honeymoon as well.

    My gf lived there for a short time and has a lot of family still there, thinking about maybe taking a road trip...

    specifically, for sport bikes, it's the north west side of arkansas (also the north east side of Oklahoma and the southern side of Missouri).

    It's sport bike heaven.

    The roads are VERY well maintained, are extremely curvey, well marked, and banked. Not to mention there's MILES of twisties up there and it's BEAUTIFUL.

    I have some video from this last trip that I'm going to try and pull off of my camera here in a few.

      fair enough, put up or pm me a link to those vids, I'd be interested in watching...

      Unfortunatly I don't have a bike yet though, mainly cause I'm just trying to get by finnishing up college while paying for my car, and hopefully get my new carputer set up in... But even after that I've seen too many motorcycle accidents around here to even think about getting on one on this island. In a couple of years I'll prob. move off long island, and when I do... One of the first things I get will be a bike

          I'm looking at a suz GS500.... yup, something light and airy (first bike) I know, nothing compared to a thundercat, but still 2 totally different bikes.

            Wow! well that was an iteresting thread. I'm glad to read your review on Hertz as I had never heard of them before. I am like you in that I dont like my tweets do be so bright. The tweets in my 06 Jetta are very bright and are a bit much for me. I will keep hertz in mind when i get around to replacing the stock speakers in my car.

              I started out on a '96.

              GREAT first bike. Wish I still had it actually. I'd love to take it out on the back roads now...

              Good to hear someone being smart about a first bike, it's so rare these days!

                Yup, I'm born in a biker-family, so I can't stay behind. But I don't want to risk myself being in hospital after a day of thoughtless, unexperienced racing. The GS500 is 35.1Kw, and I need a bike that has at least 35Kw to get my licence, so this is perfect.

                  we're actually thinking about going down the street here and offering to buy a lady's GS500 off of her...she's ridden it all of 3 times. Wayyy too timid to think about riding...something you CANNOT be and expect to survive on a bike, especially in traffic.

                    You can buy mine after I finished my driving exam. I actually want a retro naked. Something along the lines of a late '70's honda cb650/750, BMW R75 or a triumph bonneville.

                        Not my style really....

                        edit: maybe a triumph speed four (not a retro bike though), but I don't know.... Maybe the 97hp will be a little too much for a first bike.

                        What do you think? I have no clue how deadly 97hp would be.

                          It all depends...for instance, my 85HP 900SS (60 ft. lbs.) isn't too much as long as you're a responsible individual.

                          It also depends on how quickly it revs.

                          If you have a solid head on your shoulders and understand that the bike CAN cause you to loose your life....you're fine. Just remember how you need to pay attention to the throttle...it can and WILL get away from you at times. You just need to know how to handle it when it does.

                            I'm smart enough to know I don't have to buy my bro's 150hp ZZR.... I think, no matter how hard you try, you won't be able to handle it without any experience.

                            See, I like nice bikes. I don't care how fast they are. But I have to admit, I don't know where the level of danger starts with bikes.

                            The safest way would probably be to buy the GS500 for sure. But if someone experienced could tell me: "be sure not to go past that limit...." I am responsible, but I still want to be able to control my own safety. And it's a fact that -for instance- a 150hp bike isn't a good idea, no matter what.
