Kek it actually looks like him.
How many of these pics of squids eventually learned their lesson?
I feel so blueballed, my brain is clamouring for more information on the new gsx-r but I know I won't be getting any until the thing basically comes out.
what do you expect? looks and will ride like every other gixxer out there.
I just want to know more about how the variable valve timing effects it, specifics on the electronics, how oversquare it actually is etc.
Variable Valve Timing on a sportbike makes it the most interesting upcoming bike to me.
2017 1000 have Meme-tec VVT which is pretty cool to see how it's going to work out.
well the other curious thing is they also said it'd be the lightest GSX-R ever.
I am taking to be a lie because I don't think it'll be possible to be under 198kg wet of the k5-6 when it's full of electronics and catalytic converters and that one wasn't.
I really want this but I don't know why I should need a highend supersport basically racing machine for the street.I mean I'm very well off with older liter bikes. I don't have a track nearby.
would you be going to track it?
It really should have been done by Honda with the Fireblade ages ago. Really stupid, but now we will see if it brings advantages.
actually street usability is why I find it interesting, it has the same old gsx-r1000 seating position and VVT is a feature that legitimately only makes sense on a road bike soon as it improves low down torque and fuel efficiency mainly, essentially sportbikes have become more and more track focused to the detriment of their road friendliness, prime example, the new R1.
This dyno of the old and the new one should highlight what I mean, the litrebikes are now so oversquare and highly strung to get big peak hp they actually often have less power under like 10k than the old ones do, my hope is that the VVT on this one brings balance to the force and has the screaming high end from being super oversquare (14.2k redline, the same as the 2015 s1000rr supports this theory) but with that streetable bottom end supplanted back in.
and yes, of course it'd hit the track, but I'm mainly interested because I think it'll do both nicely.
dat glorious pre-catalytic converter fueling
I need fairings you cucks. Anyone have experience with buying any online?
Yeah, Good Morning Chinchin
I'd prefer it if Bakuon!! would get more straight than futa porn though
I mean I would have no problem if someone would give me one, but if I had the choice...
Torn between a Z750 or a 600cc supersport
>naked looks, streetfighter look
>easy to work on bc no fairings
>comfier at low speeds
>slower than my current bike don't want to downgrade
>unstable at high speeds? (+180 km/h)
>uncomfy at high speeds (+180 km/h
>faster than current bike

>must take fairings off to work on it
I'm leaning towards the supersport I don't want to downgrade really. What do you think?
testride both and then look what pleases you more.
I've seen this meme twice in two days now
What's up with the "Don't use rear brake" crowd?
I use mine in conjunction with my front brake almost every time I brake, I use increasing steady pressure on the front brake with pulsed squeezes and steady pressure on the rear brake while progressive downshifting
I don't use it while turning unless I'm holding the throttle and want to scrub off speed while maintaining stability and I don't jam on it, I just use the front of my foot and push down with pressure
Should I not be using my rear brake at all?
Only riding 4 months now but I'm on a KLR so I think I need all the braking i can get
What about a bigger/faster naked?
Seems to match what you want.
I was faced with the same decision about three months ago.
I ended up going with the supersport because despite the initial polarising body position, you do get used to it after a while to the point where you feel almost no pain while riding for stints shorter than two hours.
Also, the z750 has a shit build quality in comparison to most of the decent ss bikes you'll be looking at.
Personally I also find my 600cc ss to be fine to ride at low speeds and around town. It isn't as fun as riding fast but it isn't bad either.
Rear brake can cause unpredictable movements when braking at higher speeds for the smallest amount of extra stopping speed. In emergency braking, go for your life. In a normal riding situation I only use back brake to slow from less than 10kmph to a stop as it helps keep the bike more stable.
try beating my Nürburgring time faget!!
More weight on the front wheel increases front wheel contact patch allowing faster turn in if coupled with a smooth release of brakes and throttle roll on as you hit the apex of the corner.
Rear brake means less weight on the front meaning the benefits of trail braking are minimised.
Got into my first crash using the rear brake while having a hoon on the 450. Old cunt pulled out and I jammed the rear brake and tried to control the front brake. I was doing hektic drifts for like 30 feet and almost swerved on him but I busted my knee into his Sienna left tail light/trunk. Stuck around for like 30 seconds but I seen someone calling the cops and I knew they were going to say I was being an animal so I was going to be charged. I flipped the plate and acted like I was fixing the bike, hopped on and ran out of there with bent bars and a whacked out of place wheel. Almost fainted a few blocks away when I realized how much I was bleeding from all the plastic shards in my knee. Pic related is OC pls don't steal.
>locked up rear wheel like a tard
>Blames it on the rear brake
>using the rear brake in an emergency
>no using it to balance
LOL idiot. The rear brake doesn't do SHIT to stop you. "Control" the front brake. So you didn't squeeze the fuck out of it you pussy? Also if you had enough time for all that skiding, you could have just slowed while swerving to the side in a controlled manner. Confirmed for shit rider.
I didn't blame the brake per se, but I tried to get around it without going over the bars. Thats why I replied to the guy talking about not using the rear brake. I really don't think the accident was avoidable. Probably the best scenario would have been dumping the bike and coming to a slide under his bumper like I've seen in some weird video.
"all that time for skidding"
Mate do you know how much 30 feet is when your doing 65? And "squeeze the fuck out of it" is a shit rider trick that gets a lot of people killed. I controlled the bike as best as I could for the dumb speed I was going. Call me a faggot for speeding but I'm pretty okay with how it went down considering I could have locked the front brake and slammed my face into his bumper, or had the bike come and whack me in the back of the head. It all comes down to me speeding and doing my best to avoid a collision.
Legend has it he's still on his first lap and shit posting from atop the 125 cc steed.
did he turn into a woman at the end? what the fuck man.
h y p e r m o t a r d
Buy an older sports bike with 30000 miles, rip the fairings off, spray it yourself, and put off roads on it.
First boring webm of 2016.
>tfw you think your engine is about to explode
>but it's just ACF-50 burning off
Having two shitbikes. You're living the dream, m8.
>>using the rear brake in an emergency
Er.. but you're supposed to. At the MSF course there was a whole segment on emergency braking. If you aren't already upright, do what you can to stand the bike up straight and then get on both brakes as hard as you can without locking them. A difficult thing to do when you have seconds or less to react.
fuck even as a german I would go to Bavaria. Fuck Hamburg, Fuck Berlin, Fuck NRW, the more south you go the better I guess, but I actually haven't got a clue about what to do in germany or where to be. I don't know shit about my own ountry.
FUCK YOU we're having 5° here.
>fags that brake instead of downshifting and revmatching to slow down
he means Fahrenheit bruh. and I will try. I might go to frankfurt as well, I have a good family friend that lives there.
I actually want to go there for a day. Can't forget the history or you are doomed to relive it.
You and I both know that nobody actually revmatches in the real world. 99.9% of everybody just lets the clutch slip as it forces the engine to match the speed of the bike for whatever gear they downshift to.
>I actually want to go there for a day.
I'm sure it would be a laugh.
Got a question for sumos/enduro owners
do you guys take off your pads when parking in places that aren't near your home or that you'll be away for some time?
just got a neat white with green outlining renthal pad and I fear someone will steal it
Is that supposed to sound like a lot of miles? Granted I don't know what bike it is, but if it's a wet clutch and you're using the right oil it should last the life of the bike, barring any catastrophic mechanical failures.
I use the rear brake whenever I break to stop faster(combined with the front obviously) or when going near corners to slow down a tiny bit if needed or even when the bike is a bit leaned and I don't wanna risk some funky shit
am I doing it wrong? I actually use it a lot
I also mix the rear brake and clutch play to not get my feet on the ground when the traffic is super slow or when I wanna go out of some parking stuff and wanna do a close 180 turn or even 360
Never thought to, but my speedo is in my pad so I wouldn't be able to. When I take the sumo out I make sure I can see it if I park it, which is usually just to get a burger or coffee. I really need to rig up some key assembly or something since the bike is kickstart.
>but making your engine do all your braking is stupid.
I'll hit the brakes when i want to stop, not slow down. Why burn brakepads when you don't have to?
>Is that supposed to sound like a lot of miles?
Most bikes in America are midlife crisis fodder. You'll see millions of 20 year old bikes wtih less than 10k miles.
what kind of and how often does a 450exc need maintenance compared to regular bikes?
>inb4 welding the frame twice a week
The thought of someone stealing my crossbrace pad never even crossed my mind.
Not sure lol. I just bought it. I think changing oil and checking the valves every 20 hours or so is normal. I've heard these last really long for a dirt bike so that's why I chose it.

Question: what magazine should I get a year subscription to?
I was thinking Sport Rider.
>tfw people almost hit you when you don't brakelight
>tfw these people are allowed to drive
>tfw they bitch at you while in their car
>tfw using 64kbps internet
I'm retired before the captcha has loaded
I just drop a gear to slow down. Can cause skidding of the rear wheel, which is just more energy loss.
You can activate the brake light without actually braking
It's even worse in the rain
>shit visibility because no wipers and a fogged up visor so going easy
>car behind is keeping no distance
>slow down by engine braking for a corner
>they honk because they didn't expect you to slow down even though the road looks like mirror
>>Can cause skidding of the rear wheel, which is just more energy loss.
>>they honk because they didn't expect you to slow down even though the road looks like mirror
This is why you activate the brake light.
here a small shitstorm started lel
pretty cool, exept for these stupid bicycle road shit. I think my favourite corner road was in belgium, it made me feel pretty good.
>exept for these stupid bicycle road shit
They are on their own roads most of the time, which is the best shit ever for both sides.
Just too bad most roads here are straight and the few that aren't are clogged up by cagers that can't corner or have ridiculously low speed limits (with lots of radar traps)
>Started fixing up the KTM to my liking
>found that almost everything was loose
>1 triple clamp bolt was missing
>1 triple clamp bolt had too big of a head so it couldn't be fastened securely
>triple clamp had damage from steering stopper. Come on KTM all you had to do was put a bumper there so the bolt didn't ram right into the crack
>pls don't snap.
>foot brake seems like it's missing a bushing or something, but anyway I got it to firm up by adjusting it
>front brake might need work to get firm lever feel
>air filter looks pretty dirty. no bueno.
I didn't think it would be practical to bring a set of wrenches and check every bolt before buying. I did however make sure everything was working. I knew about most of these before buying but bought it anyway because every used bike will have flaws.
inb4 it actually breaks in half
I mean these

God I hate rodents.
Can't handle the Merkel so you're going to crawl back to the country who raped you in the ass in the 40's and then continued to treat you like a cuck bitch until the end of the USSR? hahahaha God forbid you might stand on your own two feet, Cuckland.
Better than killing girls
Also nice trips
Reminder that it's poland that initiated the fall of the first USSR. As soon as the """""refugees""""" are dealt with we'll just tell Russia to fuck off again
>Poland leaving the EU
It'll be great seeing all your toilet cleaning countryfolk getting deported out of the west back to their jobless shithole.
>implying Russia will give a shit what you say once you cut ties with the western Nuclear bro's
>TFW no TDM900
>Tfw no comfy 90 HP adv bike to hit twisties with yamam80s on without lagging behind
Tfw a big guy
I said adv, not adventure
but that's literally what adv means
>sobald ich wieder arbeiten muss, damit ich mir an dem Tag frei bekomme
wat laberst du?
Just 3 months of cold.
Only 3 months of cold and I can be happy again.
So I'll buy a supermoto as first bike, just wanna know what are some stuff I should know before I pull the trigger on one.
How's this bike?
>2800 american euros
something's very wrong
Why does weather have to leave me hanging so bad
because you live in poland
>mfw one of my best friends is polish
hast du schonmal nen 48 PS kübel mit schadensfreiheitsklasse 0 versichert? ist teurer als du denkst. so wie's jetzt ist zahl ich 180 euro, ganzes jahr wärens 250 gewesen
Is it me you're talking about?
No I'm the polish bloke with a cbr250r and lady legs
why did you make me look at that? oh god no.
but nah, he's from some kind of state where there's a P on the license plate, and he never gets tired to point out cars with the license plates. he's also a top bloke, which i suspect you might not be
>start bike up
>it's having trouble
>once it's going misfiring all over rather place
>bike is vibrating quite strongly for a i4
>after a few minutes of riding misfire just disappears out of the blue
That was exciting
That's where the cunt that stole my license plate lives. Fucker better give it back
Also, does looking at my legs make you uncomfortable in your pants, faggot?
1.85 Surrendermonkey International units of length
>Superior Ducati up in here
>Poor weeaboos need not apply
>post a picture of shaved legs
>y u afraid of masculinity
>muscle porn of shaved men
>yeah that's so manly I love muscles yeah not gay at all
If not getting why one is better than the other makes me autistic, so be it.
Also, those bitches who go for the most aesthetic muscle are weak as fuck. You need fat to store energy
I want to live in russia and ride around like that all the time
How bad on the engine would it be if I got a Grom and rode it at 55 MPH on a daily basis for 15-20 minutes at a time?
Check out the Honda Rebel
It's very small with a 27 or 28 inch seat height, can't remember off the top of my head
If you're taller than 5' 9" you'll look like a circus clown riding a trike tho
The absolute fastest I've been is 170 km/h when tailgating a BMW X6
I can reliably do 150 without head or tailwind on a flat surface with no tailgating
The 125cc horizontal Honda air cooled engine is as shitbike as shitbike gets. Even cockroaches aren't as durable as it. There's however a more pressing issue: why the fuck would you want a grom as a daily commuter? You'll have more fun on an xt225 or something
Is there even such thing as girls riding motorcycles or they're so rare you can literally count every one of them by pics like that?
Riding is one of the few pleasures I have and I would love to find a grill who would share that feel with me. Do they really exist or it's a meme? How can I find them? Do they attend group rides and stuff like that? I ride on my own all the time so have no idea about this
Really? Most owners I'm seeing on the honda forums say they top out around 55-60
Thanks! I'm only 5' 6" so I really want a small bike that's comfortable. I like the looks of the Rebel. Is it a good bike to use as a daily rider?
Don't lose hope
I ride for 10 years and attended only 2 group rides. Just not my thing. Looks like I need to suffer for that chance to see a real riding grill.
Before I bought it my friend was telling me not to get it even though it was a good deal. He said it's because only squids ride GSXRs and I told him to stop jerking off motovloggers. He was actually seriously telling me that.
Still a Gsxr
No, you can have this old stale picture instead.
How much do you all personalize your motorcycles? My CBR250 is missing its lower cowl (previous owner) and I'm considering doing rim tape and/or reflective decals to set it apart from the myriad of other black cbr250s and to hopefully make it more noticeable to cagers at night.
it's under a cover and outside
you can have this very rare picture.
Don't. It's your first bike and any mods will only make it lose resale value. Rim tape is alright, I guess
Fellow KLR guy here.
Our bikes breaks in general are pretty shit, but the rears are pretty decent compaired to other bikes break bias.
Definately keep using both breaks, you will want the extra breaking power of both wheels to be second nature when your in a panic stop.
Rear break in a turn like you're doing is also good because a fistfull of front break will make the bike want to highside.
Under the asumption you're 'merican and took the msf, just listen to the shit should have said about when to use what break.
Also you probably have noticed the front dives like a motherfucker, so i tend to use the rear to come to a stop once at parking-lot speeds.
What year klr bud?
I can post pictures of many bikes and bike-related activities in the bike thread friend
I can also ridicule many bikes and bike-related activities in the same thread
No, it's from "Futachu Chapter 2" from the days when he drew dickgirl porn as a hobby
It already has a CB400 and a Katana 400 (albeit, as you can see, with a fleshlight installed in the tank)
I agree. I've only gone for a black one because it had abs
If you want to be added you need to make a map of your own first, that's the only thing that will bring ktm cunt to update it with the power of buttmad
Also is it just me or are cbr 250r riders cunts
on many bikes, even good bikes it comes non switchable which I think is dumb.
If you're thrashing your CBR250R about you're probably going to get similar fuel economy to a Ninja 250 ridden in the same way.
It's not like Ninja 250's are ridiculously bad on fuel compared to the thumper CBR.
It can become a crutch for bad braking technique, which could catch you out when riding a bike without ABS.
There's a RwT video of a subscriber crashing RwT's gf's YZF-R125 from locking up the front end because he learned to ride on a Duke 390 with ABS and never learned how to brake properly.
oh I know that video
Well then it's not the ABS's fault that the rider's an idiot. And it's not like people who ride without ABS everyday are immune to locking up the front
>washing out while already on grass
This shit don't happen on based harley
>hitting the grass without a hint of washing out
>washing out without hitting the brake
Also that's pretty hektik to take a street bike through the grass at full speed.
Plenty of roads, try Google poorfag.
Let's discuss Harley-Davidson instead
What makes them so comfortable?
I don't take videos while riding but feel free to google "tasmania" and try and find any place there that's more than 30 minutes away from at least 7/10 twisties.
A desperate need to try and find at least one area in which they don't suck completely.
And the fat on rider's ass cushioning the impacts
Stay poor mudslime :)
I'd pay good money to see him mount that
why would you buy the ABS version to rip the fuse out, the point being if you buy the ABS version you should be able to easily switch it on and off as the situation desires on the fly, you can't pull fuses on the fly.
>on the fly
The only reason you'd need that is if you often switch between offroad and onroad riding. On sportbikes the only time you don't want ABS is when you're stunting and if you're stunting you shouldn't be on a public road in the first place
Even so, you can turn off ABS quite easily without pulling a fuse
>hit the grass
>lock the front
>spin the rear
This confuses the speed sensor because the speeds don't match up and ABS decides to back out for the time being
what the fuck is this program called
