All posts for the month January, 2014

When you think ‘used’ or ‘previously owned’ in regards to a motorcycle, do you think high mileage?

Our shop has more than half a dozen previously owned bikes with less than 500 miles on them! At the end of each month, we’ll share SF Moto’s Low Mileage Leader – the previously owned motorcycle or scooter we acquired in that month with the lowest mileage.

January’s Low Mileage Leader was a green 2012 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R with only 155 miles on it!

With the new year comes an increase in the fines and penalties for traffic citations from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

We wanted to make sure our fellow CA motorists (no matter whether by car, motorcycle, or scooter) are aware of the financial costs of breaking traffic laws.

Your sneaks may look great and be as comfortable as wearing no shoes at all, but they’re not really up to the dangers of riding, even if you’re not on the racetrack. How about a little hot exhaust header on your ankle? Or slipping in a nice patch of antifreeze and having 600 pounds of angry motorcycle land on your ‘ol malleolus? Ow.
