Strong winds and a light bike
(Palm Springs, CA)
I am looking to get my first bike and other than 5 months of riding a 125cc semi-automatic scooter I have no riding experience. I live in the coachella valley (near Palm Springs in southern California) where the weather is absolutely perfect for riding...except for the extreme winds! It is not uncommon to have extreme weather warnings w/ gusts up to 50mph in certain areas. For a starter bike im looking at either a Suzuki DR200 (becaues i like off-roading as well) or a Ninja 250R both of which are light bikes. My bike will be my only mode of trasport so I will not have the luxury of hopping the car is the winds are high. Am I crazy to think I can safely ride on streets w/ 60mph speed limits with wind gusts that high on such a light bike (and I only weigh 110lbs)??
bike shuts off after 20 minutes
I have a 2004 honda shadow 600. when driving after 20 minutes bike shuts down and will not restart. If I let the bike sit for around 15 minutes it will restart. I was getting suggestions on maybe a bad auto fuel valve. could there be any other avenues to look down

I am a new rider but have been riding on the back of my husbands bike for about 10 years. I have pair of Harley boots that I was using as a passenger but the heel is to high and I don't feel comfortable with them as a rider. I ride a Honda shadow spirit and have been thinking about purchasing a pair of racing boots online. I like the look of these boots because they have very little to no heel and seem like they would be soft and flexible. My question is: does anyone one use racing boots on a cruiser style bike and would it be a safe and appropriate option for a new rider. Any suggestions or online links would be appreciated.
Newbie here! Are there any ladies out there who ride trikes? What are the pro and cons to these bikes ?
