Hi all, I'm new here and hoping to get myself a ninja 650.
So I was wondering if those who own the bike night be able to help with a conundrum.
I recently moved to a new place and, I hadn't thought about it, but it has this ridiculous gate which you have to go through to get off the road. The gate is concrete posts either side and the total gap is 30 inches. I really want to keep the bike off the road and if I can get it through the gate I can even keep it undercover.
Does anybody here with the bike have a similar issue, or knows the dimensions well enough to give me a heads up?
Awesome, thanks for the advice, do you happen to know the width from handle bar to handle bar, I'm thinking if it is a real pain I could keep some kind of dolly next to the gate, put the bike on, line it up and push it through....although this could be even more of a hassle....maybe I'll just need to get good at being dexterous with the bike.
Thanks both, this puts my mind at ease, last thing I wanted is for my new bike not to fit through the gate! and be forced to keep it on the street. I had a feeling it should be OK but wanted to make sure.
Folding the mirrors every day on an ER means they will end up loose, as they are held in place with loctite and screws only!
I had this same problem when I had my Er-6f, as I have to enter my garden first, before parking the bike in my garage through a widened side door.
Riding up the motorway one morning to work, the left side folded in on me with a whack!
I don't have this problem anymore with my SX, since the mirrors fold like car mirrors, snapping/locating into position and snapping back when folded (I hope that makes sense!?)
Personality helps, but ATTITUDE is everything!
