Haven't really bothered to look into it. How are you guys getting up there? Flying? I just can't imagine going to a race and not having my bike with me

Yeah - we're flying. It looks like we'll actually be leaving on 9/11... weird. Anyway... it will definitely suck to not have the bike with us but it will allow us to take full advantage of the included beer and wine in the package we opted for. We spent a ridiculous amount of money but it's going to be hella worth it.

We have general admission and reserved seats on turn 9 for Fri., Sat., and Sun., parking, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, beer, wine, soda, unlimited access to the air conditioned GP club with televisions, and a 1/2 day paddock pass.

Check out the ticket section on the website. We put ourselves on the waiting list for the tickets above months ago when Indy made the announcement that the GP was coming there in 2008.

I must go to a GP, I can't believe it's returned to the US and I haven't been yet!

The last two years in a row my friends bailed on the idea last minute.

I knew someone going this summer and I was seriously thinking about RIDING to California and sleeping on a cot in his hotel room. I just wanted one person to go a long with the idea (I have about 3 buddies dumb enough to do so) but no one was solidly in. I knew someone else working for Red Bull that could get tickets, fuck, I should have just gone alone.

Buy my 98 Civic 5spd - New A/C $2250 over 40mpg on the [email protected]

Go to Indy next year! My husband got to go the year before last and I am so excited to be able to go next year and see all of the action for myself as opposed to hearing "oh yeah, I saw that" or "man, that is way better in person"...

We put ourselves on a waiting list for those tickets so I am not sure if they are selling them or what... it took months to even get a call back. But there is a place on the website to reserve tickets... then they call you back with what is available.

The stars of the IndyCar Series, including Indy winners Helio Castroneves and Dan Wheldon, and rising young stars Marco Andretti and Danica Patrick, will race inches apart in ?The Greatest Spectacle in Racing? at 220 mph for a record winner?s purse of at least $2.5 million.

You should also check out an older Ducati Monster. Talk to Honneur 05 about it, he had one for a couple years as his first bike.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

does nobody understand he's looking for a low cc bike as a first bike? since when does a ducati crapmonster come in a low cc version? A Buell Blast is a 500cc single cyl bike that's made for beginners and is pretty cheap. It's also one of the only smaller bikes that is belt driven and all the others are chain driven. cheaper than a Vulcan 500 and less maintenance with having that belt. it's an air cooled single though, versus the liquid cooled v-twin of the VN500.

Get a new 250 ninja, they finally look great and no worries about going too fast. And not too expensive.

We bought a blast for my wife's first. Within a month, she was bored with it because it had no power and it also sounded like a lawn mower with that single cylinder motor. I'd say look into a Ninja 250 or if you can find an older Suzuki GS550, those are real nice bikes.

Do not get a Blast! In less than 2 weeks you will want to burn it. Way underpowered. Way small! Seriously go sit on one. Get a sv650. Or a ninja 500.
Most important, it sounds like assss. Like it is a very small weed eater.

I almost bought one for my son's first bike. The salesman talked me out of it!

I went to Suzuki and bought a sv650. Used Sv's are cheap 3k for a good one.

just get something cheap, NOT new, and don't be stupid with it. do all your learning on it, after 6 months you'll want something better and at least by then you'll have some riding under your belt to get a better idea of what you want in a bike long term.

30% more MIDRANGE power. the ninja 250 not going to be substantially faster, but it'll have a little more punch in the middle of the powerband, which should definitely be nice. I'm definitely looking forward to it, and if my wife ever wants to buy a bike, that is what she will be getting. And then i'll probably steal it every now and then and ride the shit out of it. i'd definitely go with a new 08 ninja 250r over a buell blast.

we have '07 Ninja 500's marked down $500 right now, and have several used ones. They're decent first bikes for anyone, esp a female.

the Euro's get a nice looking new Yamaha 125cc bike.

1 Cyl Sportster

The Buell you're looking at is nothing more then a sportster 883 motor/trans framed up by Eric Buell. They are half the bike of a Sportster in weight and reliability. They are nice performing for what they are but you can't get all the performance out of it that you will from a Ducatti or Suzi.

The big Buells are better machines. Check out the XB12R and the Firebolts. If you are into a starter though, go for the Ducatti Monster and learn to handle the thing over a few months. It is always better to buy a reliable and capable bike you can grow into than one you will quickly outgrow.

I have had three Harleys, two Ducattis, two Suzies and a Honda. Of everything I've had, the Ducattis were by FAR the most capable and fun. Trust what folks here told you and do the Duke!

Alright people, pay attention:
"To Many " is an address like in a toast or tribute while "Too Many " is an implication of excess.



I think I am the only non-fox guy out here!

Your wrong on the engine..The blast is a 500 cc SINGLE...
I've got a firebolt and had a lighting with the 12 in them.
As to the og poster...
Opinions are like assholes everyone has one and theirs is always correct.. Best thing to do is go spend a weekend test driving them,ect.. Dont listent to the people who think that If you get anything other than "brand x" it is a piece of shit. I love my buells,have over 25K on my 04 firebolt and had 12k on the lightning.Never had a single issue with either..
The Blast was desinged maninly as just something to get around town on. NOt something you want to cruise down 635 on. Make your own opinions dont follow all the sheeple and think you have to have a gixxer to be "cool"\

Thats because you had the old style "tube"frame..Go ride a new one and it is a world of difference. I've ridden mine to austin with no problems other than the motor being loud after a while.BUt when your running a wide open D&D that is to be expected.

just a heads up that we'll have a '08 Ninja 250 in stock within the next 2 weeks. A great Christmas present for someone. We'll only have 1 for Dec, and have yet to get any deposits on any. so, if you want to secure it with a deposit drop me a pm or email. They run $3499 and we just would need a $500 deposit.

I've owned big Buells. Nice bikes. I've co-owned a Blast. The Blast is a piece of shit, even for its intended purpose.

LOL! Could be, but it could also be pretty damn fun who knows. I have never riden "a small cc bike" so I probably wouldnt like it, but it looks good.

These are the demands and sayings of Duncan.

The blast is one of the worst bikes ever built. A few years ago someone had the buellblastsucks.com site dedicated to how his front end broke off randomly at 60mph. There was a class action suit that followed & after he settled the site went down. Other than that check any opinion sites or rider ratings & you're not going to find too many favorable things about the blast.

That 125 is sweet. I would buy that for my girl to learn on and then play a little my self. There are like 3 250 ninjas on Craigs for cheap. My best suggestion is to go buy you a dirt bike for 1500 and ride it as much as you can for a few months and you will be set for the street. Not exact but it all tranfers over.

Dual Purpose

My first street bike was a KLR 250. It was slow. I couldn't hardly get it past 90 but I was only 16 so it served it's purpose by not being fast. That black ninja 250 looks killer.

The coldest I have been caught out in was about 2 1/2 years ago. I work overnights. When I rode into work it was in the high 40's, I didn't watch the weather forecast which would of told me about the cold front, wore my leather jacket, gloves and blue jeans. When I got off work it was around 27 and it sucked. 10 min. ride of pure hell. About a block from work I couldn't feel my legs. When I got home, my upper body was red, my legs were a bluish pink and it took about 30 minutes to fully gain function of my hands. Now I don't do stupid things like that, since I got the stang.

Years ago, I rode a bike every day, rain or shine or snow. It was my only mode of transportation. There were MANY days I rode to and from work when it was well below freezing. I did have all the appropriate riding gear, which helped, and I didn't have far to ride.
