    IMO it depends on how 'ape' you want to go. I can rock clip-ons or apes just as long as they're not over my head or below my pelvis even as an arthritic old fart so really it all boils down to...

    It may seem ludicrous/funny but you're right. A bike with a longer wheelbase and lower center of gravity will resist lifting the rear during hard braking better than the typical sportbike and because...

    If you enjoy the GZ250 the way it is then I'd keep it that way and get another one to customize into a hardtail... there's no reason to stick with just one type of bike if you don't have to. Despite...

    Any motorcycle capable of doing 45 mph will stop in about half the distance using both front and rear brakes than with just a rear brake. The faster you go, the greater the difference in stopping...

    I know where the builder of that bike is coming from. In the 60s we used to customize our Schwinns and Huffys and I've seen that trend carry on to chops recently... an ode to fond childhood memories....
