Honda VT750C2 is My Kind of Bike

Posted by admin in Motorcycles on 06 19th, 2009

I am currently looking for deals to get my own motorcycle because I always loved those two-wheeled bad boys, and since I can’t afford to buy a Harley, I thought getting one from Honda motorcycles would be the next best thing to do. Right now, I have my eye on the 2008 Honda VT750C2 Shadow Spirit 750 and I think I am going to stick to it. I really love it due to the bike’s wonderful specs. The engine is a 745cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin, the bore and stroke is 79mm x 76mm. The compression ratio is 9.6:1, has a valve train of SOHC; which is three valves per cylinder, the carburetor is a single 34mm constant-velocity with a fuel capacity of 3.7 gallons, including a 0.9-gallon reserve. The transmission also gives a good quality for having an ignition of CD with electronic advance, two spark plugs per cylinder, it also has a transmission of a wide-ratio five-speed, the final drive is a shaft, the emissions meet the current EPA standards, where the California version meets current CARB standards though may differ slightly due to emissions equipment. Overall, I think this would be a perfect motorcycle for my standards. I just can’t wait to have it in my hands.



My New Bike

Posted by admin in Motorcycle Insurance, Motorcycles on 06 4th, 2009

I finally got enough money to buy myself a brand new Ducati 1198. I always wanted to have a Ducati bike because it is basically the best. The Ducati 1198 is a super bike produced by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati starting the year 2009. It is one of the newest that they have in the market today and I think it is also the best. Ducati offers several models of bikes as well: the 1198, 1198S and 1098R. The 1198 shares identical design elements with its predecessor 1098, but has more power and torque, redesigned wheels, lighter headlights, traction control and lighter fairings (on the S model), and a few minor paint changes. Another carryover from its 998 heritage is a distinctive single-sided swing arm. I am really happy that I was able to get this kind of bike. All I need to do now is to get motorcycle insurance. I thought that with this kind of motorcycle, I have to make sure that everything is properly ensured because this is one of a kind motorcycle and you can’t normally find this one in the streets, unless you really look for it. Anyway, bottom line is I am really happy.
