Hyosung GV 250 Review

Special guest David G.'s review of his Hyosung GV-250 (a.k.a. Hyosung Aquila 250 Review)

Say you are between 5' - 6'4" tall and are at least 16 years old, but, probably less than 75, and, you either want to learn to ride, start riding again, or just need a dependable commuter bike to save gas money.

I promise, you'll definitely use one, and, for some unknown reason, you will love it beyond any of its specifications, as it's so much more than your "first real motorcycle" or your "getting back in the saddle, now that the kids are grown" motorcycle. Every errand is another reason to make use of it.

New Sponsor: AMPP – Advanced Motorcycle Paint Protection

Small motorcycle initiatives are hard work. Despite being a hobby, YouMotorcycle and bikerMetric serve up 165,000 page views to over 70,000 motorcyclists every month. The community and friends help out on occasion, but whenever an advertiser steps up and steps in to throw us a few bucks the support goes a long way. The money helps us cover the bills associated with hosting and bandwidth, it lets us buy better plugins or pay for help with programming to make the site experience better for visitors. Thank you to everyone who supports the site, whether you enjoyed a post and shared it on Facebook or Twitter (we love that), letting us know about a typo you found (it happens), or coming on as a sponsor as AMPP did.

Why Kevlar Is The Most Awesome Fabric On Earth

Kevlar is a synthetic fiber developed by DuPont, which is a high strength material used in product like ropes, racing sales and body armor. It can withstand high impacts and can stop bullets when used for body armor. The strength it withholds comes from its internal structure and strong bonds that can endure many hours of rough use.
