The Top 10 Starter Bikes
The tumultuous rumble of dual exhaust cans drowns out the stale elevator music on your way up to the office. You daydream of wheelies, knee-dragging and checkered flags. Sleep is a fond memory, due to motorcycle-induced insomnia. If you experience any of these symptoms, you’ve got the fever, and once you’ve been bitten, there is no antidote. After completing your MSF safety course, obtaining your motorcycle license endorsement and purchasing the proper riding gear, there’s only one thing left on the list: your first motorcycle. Shrewd riders will opt for a bike with a smaller engine, lower seat height and comfortable riding position to aid the two-wheel acclimatization process. Bikes like the Suzuki Hayabusa, Kawasaki ZX-14 and Yamaha YZF-R1 are certain death rockets for beginner riders, so hide the pride and spring for a tamer machine. Entry-level motorcycles usually tend to be wallet-friendly and produce exceptional gas mileage, which is paramount in these preposterous economic times. Have a good hard look at our list of top 10 beginner motorcycles that are on the market now, and work your way up to that Z1000.

The 11 Biggest Movie Flops Of All Time
There has been some major movie flops in the past few years (I’m looking at you Gigli) but none of them compare to the biggest flops of all time, which is when I take you to the following list. Elizabethtown wasn’t actually a commercial failure for the ages—it made back a little more than its budget worldwide—but the once-beloved Cameron Crowe got a vitriolic reception for his expressionistic rewrite of Jerry Maguire. Kirsten Dunst’s character talks about what it’s like to “fail big and stick around,” a self-prophesying line: like his protagonist Drew (Orlando Bloom) with his shoe designs, Crowe came up with an intensely personal project reviled by pretty much everyone. Mostly, the reviews and public seemed to want something straightforward and warm, like Almost Famous; instead, they got a series of set pieces strung together by nothing more than Crowe’s own veering interests and a Fellini-esque carnival vibe. To quote Drew’s narrative, it’s a “fiasco”: not just a failure, but a failure so spectacular it almost succeeds by sheer distinctiveness. To date, the dispirited Crowe has yet to get another feature into production.
