Route Planning / Summer Trip 2015
« on: March 30, 2015, 02:37:09 PM »
Hello everyone!
I'm planning on doing a trip this summer probably in June from Satellite Beach FL to Cadiz Kentucky"We are going there to my grandfathers house to spend a few weeks relaxing after my graduation".
My brother and I are going and we where going to drive up there but thought taking out bikes would be a lot more fun than driving!
I'm riding my 08 Honda nighthawk 250 and my brother is riding his 05 ninja 250.
I'm getting my bike ready for the trip and doing all the maintenance and making sure it could handle it. I thought doing all of it now would give me time to find routes and get everything ready.

I do have a few questions though.
My first question is can the nighthawk handle the interstate? Since its a 250 I wasn't thinking it could but would love some opinions or stories about it.
My second question does anyone have any roads/routes that they have taken that might be more enjoyable then just the interstate? Or that are a bit slower so the bikes can handle it.
Ive taken this trip before with my car but I only took the interstate and haven't taken my motorcycle on this long of a trip.
Is there any sort of maintenance or anything that I should do before taking the trip?

When I start the trip im going to upload pictures and things I find along the way.   bkr3
I will also be doing videos and guides on any maintenance I do and uploading/posting them on the forum.

General Motorcycle Discussion / 08 Nighthawk questions
« on: November 23, 2014, 01:01:31 PM »
Hello I just bought an 08 Honda Nighthawk yesterday "first bike" and I have a few questions. First where can I buy a new exhaust system or used one? Ive looked around in my local area and nobody has one. Im in FL and even online there are very few and most have issues such as rust or holes. My left side exhaust is gone! I don't know the reason why I bought it for $800 from a dealer that got in for trade. So does anyone have any places where I can get either the left side exhaust or both. Also the bike was dropped but there is very minor damage. One small ding in the tank and a crack in the left fairing. But the shifter lever got bent and its really mangled. Again looking online there isnt many that I can find. So does anyone have any ideas or one that I can buy?

Thats all my questions and thanks for looking!
