This makes up for the bike gear and accessories I bought
Hello /dbt/ im a new rider and want a first bike, but i dont like those cheap looking plastic bikes like those ninjas, really want a clasic looking bike like the new Ducati Scrambler 400, so is it a good bike? are there better bikes with the same asthetic? Also i dont really care about performance, just want an awesome good looking bike and also look cool while riding.
>inb4 ducatis are not reliable
get a wr 125, coolest looking bike by far.
>Also i dont really care about performance, just want an awesome good looking bike and also look cool while riding.
this line gives it away, leave it out next time and you'll bait a few people.
>this line gives it away, leave it out next time and you'll bait a few people.
Im trolling, i just want to know if it's a good bike.
i Googled it and it look like an ugly redneck dirt bike
>live in australia with strict motorcycle laws
>bought a wr450f motard
>no idea how i havnt lost my license yet
>want to upgrade to an r1
not sure now though. paranoid enough doing 100kmph wheelies. if i do wheelies on an r1 = jail time.
thinking i should keep the supermoto for track and buy a r6 track bike and then just buy a harley so i cant lose my license.
why would you want a shit quality made in india shitheap with like 5 more hp than what you just bought.
Are you brain damaged?
no no, you saw the Husqvarna, look for the Yamaha.
>lives in australia
>hasn't bought a KLX450
Save me from this hell anton
Get a triumph bonneville but keep in mind all "classic" bikes need some mods before they stop sucking
I like the scrambler better and since my dad is paying for it, i dont care if i have to change things a little to make it better.
faster than the v rod or vr1000?
already tried willying a WR450, the engine revs up so quick it kicks like 3x harder than my bike when you clutch pop it, took me by surprise...
The one thing I want to try is taking a sumo up to some twisties though.
Think I'll need to buy one before I get to try that though.
>These are buells
Nope, buells use sportster and rotax engines, vrod uses porshe engine and i dont know about the vr1000 but it looks like it has a dry clutch and those other bikes dont.
the big one is going to kill me because im a noob and i can use the extra $$$ for an awesome scrambler jacket and helmet
what do you think the difference between 70 and 120 hp is.
what do you think the difference between aluminium and steel is?
what do you think the difference between 3 adjustable settings on your suspension and none?
are you a retard bro
If you're so worried about staying safe you should probably invest in real protective equipment instead of fashion items. Girls are gonna laugh when they find out you got the neutered scrambler.
Look. You've been riding for over a year now. You can get whatever you want.
coming from lams sport bikes you sacrifice stuff but you gain stuff.
dont expect to do highways on it. but it's a suburban street killer. you don't have to ride all the way to twisties to have fun. just suburban streets are fun. but that's more likely to get you into trouble.
if i had money i would have both supermoto and sportbike.
i normally just power up wheelies. even third gear the front wheel comes up easy as. currently using 13/42 gearing and 4th gear comes up easy over crests without clutch.
it's good through tight twisties. anything over 60mph/100kmph and it isn't as fun. you can take corners at 120kmph but thats not where the fun is.
even in a straight line 140kmph feels sketchy. the best fun is within the torque range.
omg so jelly, just because you can afford nice things and buy a bike made by the worlds best bike company, i feel sorry for you anon.
>dont expect to do highways on it.
kek, try doing that with 1/4 of your displacement
protip: look at the speedo to feel it
the seat feels like sitting on a plank of wood and the tank is only 7L so you have to fill up every 100km.
it's not a long distance bike but it can sit at 110kmph doing 3.5k rpm with 14/42 gearing.
to be honest you wont gain as much fun as just riding around local backgrounds. on my sport bike i had to ride an hour to have any fun. but on the motard i can ride out my driveway and it's instant fun.
tfw ur bikes fucked but ya papas gonna bail u out again and get u another one :^)
You seem to be misinterpreting my words. Here, let me show you
>he's so beta he can't handle an extra 250ccs
>the seat feels like sitting on a plank of wood
fun fact, the ktm exc 450 seat feels nothing like this and is amazingly comfortable.
I have no idea why they did the hard and narrow seat thing on the WR450
but if you're wanting to ride roads like that then a sport bike is the go. it's flat as and has tons of good corners.
if there were some crests and tight corners then a motard would be awesome.
just because you've geared your bike to hit a high speed doesn't make it fun. you're just revving the tits off it and a half decent sport bike would be sufficient.
beta, you are the one thats using anime pics and gets mad because his dad wont buy im a new bike like in my case.
the road in the webm actually was a downhill, but you can't really see it.
but autobahn is boring as fuck anyways.
action cam should come in the next few days, prepare for not boring but not that interesting either webms.
still sport bike roads. supermotos are for being dicks in suburbia.
still remember the time a haybusuabro overtook me in the same lane like he owned the world. then came a speedbump and i blew past him like he was a shitcunt.
what cam did you get m8?
kek, we have suburbs and twisties here, since we're not such a big ass country like australia you can have both and don't even have to ride more than 50 kilometers. I can't even sport bikes, I was riding upright body position bikes since ever, even the bike i made my license on was one. I tried riding a bike with sport ergonomics and I just can't
that shit is disgusting to ride
am I dumb for getting a moto as my sole method of transportation come springtime
>bike only 2.5k
>no way I'd get a car cheaper
>sick of using the bus and asking to use car
I will never
because enduro riding with dad
I'm test riding the Africa Twin this afternoon. If it turns out to not suit for some random reason, should I go with the Japanese Panigale or its bastard adventure child (The VFR800X)? My only concern with the standard VFR is that the 1200 was not only easy to speed on, it actively encouraged you to do so.
busa is the answer
look deep into your heart, you know it to be true
your arms are not long enough to please the busa gods
>being stuck in a valley for one hour or more
chance of getting killed is 70% when this happens
>not looking at the bikes but at the guys
come on fag
Shaggy black hair character (Onsa) was used in a Dickgirl Manga before (looks almost exactly the same, has different name, one less little sibling and bigger breasts though) so the fan theory is that she has a dick
Happy birthday to me, bitchesss!
Also got free donuts at a cafe when the waitress heard.
Today is a good day.
drove baiku for the first time
front brake seized up and made me do a stoppie, then i drove 12km (8 miles for u burgers) to the tyre man to get new tyres
now gotta do a brake rebuild
mfw driving 70kmph without front brakes
>I'm gonna drive 40 minutes in LA city traffic with a set of motorcycle forks in my backpack, with no front brake tomorrow
We're discussing bikes, do you want to join?
Leave this place while you can. We don't like you, we don't like each other, and the same people that talk shit on someone's bike as anonymous will eat at a table with them at SEM. Get out and be a normie. It's a better life young anon.
I forgot to mention calling you a "faggot and hope you low side down a mountain."
I'm sure a lot of people here are cool, and I know 95% of the shit we say is bantz, but if I could go back in time I would want to be a normie who thought that 4chan was the worst place on the internet and go on to live as a swagfag in my cuckstang trying to pick up 6/10s
RS50 anon is young, so we must encourage him to not end up like the old dude carrying anime in the back of his pig fat bimmer bike.
>implying wranton is a nice guy
>like the old dude carrying anime in the back of his pig fat bimmer bike.
Don't forget he stuff small children into the panniers to molest later on.
>gixxer and supermoto rider calling out someone who rides a touring bike and enjoys anime
And I thought you weren't stereotypical when you said you hate squids
Anyway that's the weather outside. Do I ride to uni tomorrow?
End of Chapter 4 I think
Also have this from Chapter 2
It's all bantz. I never really watched anime but I don't detest anyone that does. There is a lot worse trash people watch than jap cartoons. I don't like weebs though. I do want a touring bike. Looking to get a CRF 1000l if they turn out to be good. And it's hypocritical not stereotypical. I ain't no squiddy.
What the fuck is everyone doing tonight and is it bike related.
>what the fuck is everyone doing tonight
Are you australian?
>and is it bike related.
Fixed the cold idle rpm speed, now it fires and revs to 2k-2.2k rpm and slowly drops down to the 1300rpm hot idle as it warms up.
my birthday was the 6th. all i got was an exhaust hanger from my dad.
Uh, look. English is not my first language but I think you'll find that stereotypical - adhering to a stereotype (that gsxr and SM riders are jock squids with overblown masculinity and a hatred of comfort)
While hypocritical - criticising something you're guilty of (fuckin squids, said harleyfag as he put on his leather vest and put on his bandana
Okay I got you. The wording confused the American a bit. Makes sense.
You can see me here in my T shirt and flip flops in the back.
It's a pretty cool exhaust hanger tbch
no, but it's still Friday I guess. I'm caging it down to my friends apartment with a few other guys and try to be a normie.
Don't be sad, I ordered and paid for these myself before Christmas. A gift from me to me, just didn't guess they'd be here on my birthday so it was still a "surprise" in a sense.
Damnit anon, you're ruining the joke. The common stereotype is that GSXR riders are all squids. I ride a GSXR (dude with the Shoei in the back) and was making a joke how since I ride a GSXR I should be in Squid attire, but I'm actually in some pretty snazzy fucking raglia that cost me a pretty penny. The meme jacket alone was 650 and the helmet did me in 500.
When is it finally not a horrible idea to buy a brand new bike.
Your second? Your third?
my rule is that if the cost of outright replacing the machine out of pocket is not possible then it's too expensive.
So if you've got enough money to make that possible with a new bike then it's not a bad idea at all.
My fourth was my first new one. My next four were new.
if you want a new bike, buy the bike that you would like to keep forever.
5th for me, it's a great feeling owning something brand spankin' new... but to be blunt, it's not like it rides any better than any of the pre-owned ones. Buy a new one when you can afford a new one.
CBR YOKES ARE IN THE MAIL COMING FROM THE UK
GOD BLESS EBAY
The only reason I would buy new is that if there's something I reeaaaally like that's not available used yet, like the R3.
I bought my first bike when it was 7 years old with 12.000km in almost new condition, but for less than half the price.
post some pls
I like how he throws it on the other side after putting it back up
why on earth did he decide this needed to be in an anamorphic aspect ratio
wel how the fuck can you say that they have better webms then if you never see them?
god damn anon
>tfw selling bike
it's not a good filling
Hold the fucking phone. Were you selling a Ducati track bike a few years ago?
>tfw it rains for 4 days straight and just as you're finally getting the hang of drifting your bike the sun comes out and you cant break traction
How does drifting on a dry road even work? Cunt just accelerates or picks up the front..
2k, plus 400 for the Enduro set (wheels, tires, front brake and rear sprocket)
A couple years ago when I wanted a track bike I found an ad on Craigslist for a ducati 998 or something like that. I went there and it was an older dude who was really cool and had like 15 bikes between him and his wife. Most of them we're touring bmws and shit and I think one looked like your anime roller. Wife made us lemonade and let me take it for a hoon with no plates or license.
yeah that's why I jumped on it. Wasn't really sure, but then I saw how the seller kept his other bike and his car, pristine conditions
Where at? And which tenere are we talking about?
1. Toby Price (KTM) 4:03:44
2. Antoine Meo (KTM) 4:06:05
3. Stefan Svitko (KTM) 4:06:17
4. Matthias Walkner (KTM) 4:06:24
5. Joan Barreda (Honda) 4:09:41
6. Pablo Quintanilla (Husqvarna) 4:10:35
7. Ivan Jakes (KTM) 4:11:03
8. Helder Rodrigues (Yamaha) 4:11:04
9. Joan Pedrero (Sherco) 4:11:20
10. Alain Duclos (Sherco) 4:12:18
Deal with it.
party time amirite
>inb4 I kill myself
>Just had for a test ride
>Now suffering from priapism
One am poorfag and flying to eu would be expensive
Two how would I get a bike there ? Borrow someone there's?
Also wouldn't I have to get a temporary motorcycle license over there?
I haven't been mentioned in the sem since sem 1 beginning when I thought I may do it but realised how unrealistic it is
Plus I will hopefully (probably ) be working at the hatchery again
Why do you want to know what I look like?
So the best relationship advice I've been given is to talk to girls like they're dudes. The problem is, I don't fucking know how to talk to dudes. My longest relationship lasted two hours before I told her I don't actually love her and I can't stay with her because it would be dishonest.
I don't wanna fuck it up I want to be a normie and have sex
Cheesy lines on internet girls works 99% of the time
Talk to them for a while first online so you get comfortable and can contain your autisim then get nudes then maybe go hang out with tem
>Did you shift?
This was the DCT model. They've made shifting much quieter, it doesn't sound like the pellet gun hitting a tin roof like the VFR1200 does.
The engine sounds and performs beautifully (kind of a Shadow like burble but a bit more agressive), it feels lighter than a GS and gives much more feedback without being bumpy. Handling is absurdly confidence inspiring, much better than a bike that high has any business being. Basically, everything about it is spot on. It's just a shame that the current delivery forecast is now mid February.
okay bro here's what you're going to do.
next time you see attractive female ask her what her front name is.
then b like
>when we going out on a date gorl.
then take her bowling.
Never be in a position where she asks you where you're taking her and you say "i dunno"
>This was the DCT model.
fucking gross who wants a motorcycle without a manual transmission?
Yeah, I've replaced the doohickey and put a torsion spring, checked valves 3000km ago and the bike has Ricor intiminators, and a Brembo master cylinder with steel braided lines on the front
I believe you can find that stuff even in Slovenia
>Riding home from work
>Eurobeat mix comes on
>Redlining it from every light
>Miss the rev-match
>Rear gets all squirrelly as speed drops
That was fucking terrifying.
>That way they will melt the ice as you ride over it, so it wont be a problem.
I'm polish and since we also have an eagle as our national animal I feel qualified to answer the question:
I sure hope not. If the Democrats send out hillary I'd like to see trump as the president because at least he's honest, but I believe Bernie would make a better president, particularly for a potential immigrant like me.
I mean compared to hillary. If they're going to have a president that embodies everything wrong with capitalism they should let their pants down and show everyone what they got swinging instead of pretending that hillary is anything but a puppet
Trump while honest isn't that brightest
Bernie a socialist
Hillary is Hillary
Chris Christy is a fucking crool
Hopefully another Republican candidate will step forward and be gud
Rand Paul isn't terrible and Ben Carson is meh
He's relitivley decent aswell
I'm not big into politics to be honest he or rand would be my vote
I also haven't looked much into the Democrat side desu, Bernie is a socialist (democratic socialist ) and is overhyped by young people who want everything to be handed to them they think he's going to be the second coming of Jesus or some shit and Hillary is Hillary,
Think he's too late to the party.
Also he's not bold enough to beat Trump.
I find it funny that libshits ridicule conservatives for all of our "conspiracies" but they have nothing but doomsday stories when speaking about Trump.
>Idk might be because I already live in a socialist state
He claims to be a democratic socialist and does share alot of ideals
I'm just opposed to him because of all the hype, (from people my age)
They all seem to think he's going to save the country when that really isn't realistic to expect
Plus alot of people just want shit handed to them and I think that makes for weak people, weak minds
That's just my opinion though, and it could very well be wrong
It's okay. We're surfing on a wave of $1.50/hour Ukrainian immigrants atm
Personally there's also a lot I find iffy about his views but less so than anyone else with an actual chance of winning (come the fuck on, you don't actually think the Republicans will allow a black man or a libertarian to run do you
getting ready for paint.
