Looking at the FB profile pic and location definitely has me stereotyping a bit. Have gone and looked at a bike in the past in that area that was too good to be true, absolutely was. Seller stated earlier that day, starts no problem runs great. Wouldn't ... more »

Acting like it's fact because of feelings and assumptions doesn't make it fact.... What if Suzuki paid Travis X amount of dollars a year and Travis spent part of that salary to buy bikes.... Like i said to the other poster, you may be 100% correct, but ... more »

Still not seeing where he said they didn't provide parts or any financial support, he said they don't give him bikes nothing about parts, financial support or whatever else. Why would Suzuki provide him bikes? It's a bike they don't make any longer and ... more »

It doesn't say Suzuki didn't support him unless you're reading something i'm not

unsure
Travis's post says he bought his Suzuki's with his own money for the last 10 years, it does not say Suzuki didn't support him in any way. I don't see any brand ... more »

Added reply in a thread What makes a good moto shop to you? 12/15/2019 5:06 PM

Shops need to be run more like the niche dealers (Beta, Sherco, Gas Gas, etc). Normally mom & pop, could nearly build your bike from their parts room, and will ship to your door if they don't have it. Pricing is fairly set, you may get a slight discount, ... more »

It's currently massively boring. Helmet or no helmet isn't going to change that.

My niece rides the smallest one they make. Very nice bikes for the price and a good first bike for her when she turned 3 a couple years ago. No issues out of it and my oldest nephew is on it now as well. They’re looking to add the next size up in the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Wondering why manufacturers don’t offer different frame sizes? 12/11/2019 4:39 PM

Beta offers all of that. Order bike, choose parts, and before you pick up they have installed all of parts either at the warehouse or dealer. There are a couple problems with this approach thru them: - Close to MSRP on everything, however no labor. - ... more »

Added reply in a thread Wondering why manufacturers don’t offer different frame sizes? 12/9/2019 6:27 AM

Beta has their Xtrainer which is a 10% smaller frame. Seat high is around 35" if i recall. Working on it is definitely a bit tighter in some areas but not too bad overall IMO.

Added reply in a thread Beta 390 or Exc/Fe 350? 12/7/2019 4:02 AM

Power wise, the 690/701 is no worse than a 350/390/w/e variant will be. It's a VERY tame motor in delivery. A little heavier of a bike, but doesn't feel fat. It does nothing great, but is excellent as an in between package for those that want to put ... more »

Beta FTW. Been extremely happy with mine (Xtrainer). 2020 Race editions come with KYB's if you're wanting the better suspension. Another brand i would look at is Sherco if you're willing to consider a 300 or 450 4T. Next bike i really want to try a Sherco ... more »

I would also consider looking at Beta as mentioned above, they have a 125 & 200 variant or Sherco for their 125. Most any modern bike isn't going to feel as much as a pig as your 07. I'm riding a Beta Xtrainer right now, absolutely love it. Power ... more »
