  1. Do Kawasaki mean streaks hurt your back to ride.

    Victory bikes are softails bud, not to mention them being super expensive! I'd leave that one out.
  2. Do Kawasaki mean streaks hurt your back to ride.

    Kawasaki
    It's not a softail, so it should be more forgiving than a softail would be. I have riden a few softail bikes and a few non-softails, all different makes and models (harley, triumph, suzuki) and the general thing I found is that softails, even the big bikes (like the harley fat boy), tend to jar...

    I learned to ride on a 1200c sporty, it was a fun bike, plenty of go with that size engine. I did find the M more comfortable and much less rattly though... They are just different bikes for different poeple. My next bike is going to either be the victory of the harley vrod. I am tempted to get...

    I have my eye on the victory hammer. To me it's an m50 on roids, just without the flashy tail :P
  6. Let's talk earbuds/headphones for cruising!

    Cruisers
    I'm wondering if anyone has come up with any creative ways to listen to your tunes while cruising. Let's talk about what works and what doesn't. Personally, I thought that in ear headphones would do the trick, but they keep falling out of my ear during the ride and now it's uncomfortable and I...
  7. All 6 ft-ers, please come in!

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Yeah, that's a good idea guys, I will definitely have to get the new pegs. Based on a quick search, Kury looks like the only comany that makes them though. Are there any others? I definitely would not want to buy cheap stuff that will rust easily. Stainless steal or something similar is a must.

    I must say, I love the suspension setting set to 1. On these bumpy, pothole ridden, New Orleans streets, it's a real godsend. I did notice that steering and the feel of the bike is a little more numb, but this is actually better for me, because now I can focus on steering the bike, instead of...
  9. M50 vs. Honda Shadow Phantom

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    ditto I agree with drifter. The shadow will be the most comfortable. The m50 will be better at spirited riding, its more fun, but at the expense of comfort.
  10. All 6 ft-ers, please come in!

    Thank man, but I already got the corbin stinger on the way. I just set the suspension setting to 1 from the factory 3, we'll see how thing trip goes, heading out in a few minutes.

    Done! The install was easy enough, nothing someone with basic tools can't tackle. It's dark and getting chilly now, so I got only about 3 miles in, and so far I am very pleased! :mrgreen: I am one of those people that cant stand to have their knees bent and this puts my knees in a perfectly...

    Can we see a pic of one of those on an actual bike?!
  14. All 6 ft-ers, please come in!

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Not sure how much breaking in there is to the stock seat, it's just kind of hard the way it's made. Also, during my search I leanred that just about all one piece seats are only good for very short trips 2up, as the ride for the passenger is just not that comfortable. I guess you can add a pad...
  15. Would you buy a M50 with no test ride

    The Boulevard
    I bought mine used without a test drive, why?! The second bike I ever rode in my life was my friends dad's c50. I was scared sh*tless to get on it, but once I did, the darn thing drove itself! So I was hooked, and to my pleasant surprice I learned that there was a NON-GRANPA version of this...

    New Member Pitstop
    Wow... that's quiet an oldie, older than me! Good luck getting her going, it will be one of a kind, not too many of those around anymore... oh, and WELCOME!
  17. How do I get one of me deleted?!

    Test Forum
    I was part of this board as Black-m50 back when this was motorcycle-journal. and then created a new account here thinking this was a different board, until i found an old thread started by ME a year or so ago, lol! So if anyone can help, Blackm50 can be deleted, and Black-M50 stays, since it is...
