1st for yamaha is god xt is life
Anybody else excited to see the new triumpth thruxton r. Already have mine pre-ordered.
Awwww yeah. Bakuon and anime about cute girls riding bike comes out in April. Get hype
Just dumped my gf cause she cheated on me several times
Now I get to ride my shitbike around and rev at qt's without feeling bad. Feels good to be single again
its a 2007 Yamaha XT660R. i only ride XTs since 2012 before that i had a shitty scooter. went from 600e to 660r. its probably the best bike for my city (athens, greece)
>never breaks down, just put gas in it and it will get you to your destination
>can handle horrible greek roads with bumps and holes everywhere if your ass can handle its seat/suspension
>handles above the car's side mirrors so you can get through lines of stopped/slow cars without even braking
>looks great for my taste
im considering changing it for a Fazer 600-S2 in the near future.
i wish i had nothing to do and that there was good weather and sun and shit so i could ride all day and take long trips and dont stay at home thinking about her :(
you mean you are here or you happen to travel here? i dont frequent /o/ that much
I always wonder what bike this is m8? I have a 78 XL350 that's a fucking dog but this seems like an older dual sport that can really pull. also, post the webm of you attacking those stairs ;^)
Bananapete ya ole motherfucker, where have you been all the time?
Will you come to SEM this time?
Thoughts of pic related?
Thinking about buying pic related in the exact same color.
>Vikings botch a 20-something yard field goal to lose by 1 point
she is pretty much ready to go to the TÜV( vehicle inspection sticker) I only need a "rote nummer" (license to ride on the street without TÜV) now to get the speedo adjusted (it is a self learning speedo, you need to drive 40kph and press a button)
University and gf take a lot of time.
Haven't been able to post a lot lately due to this.
>Will you come to SEM this time?
maybe, where is it located? Last time I hear something about it, the nürburgring was discussed
Postan bikes inna bike thread for winning powerball numbers...
sounds like a nice trip. if you come through greece id suggest the western way through ioannina -- agrinio - patra - athens instead of the main national salonica-athens road which is very dull. patra - athens road is a notorious deathtrap though.
Lel, a friend quitted after half year and brother is annoyed by uni, too.
Aren't you in the SEM email Verteiler drinnen? Fugg :^(
Alps are current decision I think
Did you at least hear of SWM?
We were actually discussing to fahren nach Italien or Slowenien. Italy is most likely afaik.
CB400 or KLR guy need to get off their asses and phone a couple of places, I don't speak spaghetti.
why does that engine seem like it is as wide as a 4 banger but only have two cylinders. how does this work.
>Did you at least hear of SWM?
nope, whats that?
Alps are current decision I think
>anything more than a daytrip is to far for me, so I cant take part
I always thought that bled would be most likely
I think CB400 emailed them but they didn't respond unlike other places.
I just need to know where we're going so I can find some comfy hotel place nearby that I can share a room with Street Triple guy in.
> no homo
Seems like I have verpasst something there
God damn lazy tartuffi should start doing some thing.
Komm schon don't be a Negerlein.
Ich geb dir ein quickes update.
SWM: ehemalige designer vor Husqvarna als ed noch BMW War, baut Motorrader mit 650er Motor (Enduro, sumo, adventure) kostet 6K neu und sieht echt gut aus. Sind jetzt auch mehr Modelle draußen. Schau mal bei google SWM 650 vs XT 660 bei Motorrad online. De glaub ich
and this is where it went down
cant fucking wait for SEM...
I am buying a car so i hope i will have 500 euros laying around for SEM.
I'm still honored that I'm quoted on all these Euromeet posters
wont happen, blew my money on the korsika tour without ever reaching korsika due to bad weather.
need to save money for the upcoming motorcycle trips with the gf, she liked our motorcycle vacation trip so much last summer that she wants to go again this year but much longer
choosing pussy over bros...
Shame on you...
Take your gf with you to the SEM. What's the worst that could happen?
> he never actually reached corsica
KLR guy went off the cliff in road to Norway i think.
fkg was lucky that only the bike went down that hill and not he himself too
And the winning powerball will be...
this is the Lago di Resia in Italy it is a barrier lake and there was once a small town. The removed all ov the buildings except for the church tower as it was made only out of stone and therefore no harm for the water source.
It is a tourist attraction now. But I highly recommend going there in the late evening like after 7pm the sun is nicer then and there are less tourists.
she is more dtf than you guys
btw is is also difficult for me to take a week off due to work and study
Fucking dubs declare it! 1.3 billion US dollars will be mine!
I thought he fell off the cliff and they found his body at the bottom. It looked like he didn'tdie straight away as they said it looked like he was moving around due to the distirbed ground.
He died a slow painful death.
>they said it looked like he was moving around due to the distirbed ground.
who said that?
I was at the funeral and don't know about anything like that
that's a very nice pic
and also the sem is at the end of july and start of august, many unis have semester breaks at that time
>that's a very nice pic
>end of july and start of august, many unis have semester breaks at that time
here too but we are probably using this time frame for our vaccation. Sorry guys I'm out.
Btw if you guys are riding the alps pay attention to avalanches and landslides
>I guess he...
>didn't remove that before flight
This is the news regarding Axel's death. Sadly it's only available in Norwegian.
But yes fellas, he is really isn't around anymore.
I was actually planning on going to Norway with a Norwegian (f-f-for translation purposes of course) but she's too busy being with someone else now. I could take a Spanish gal with me now but tbqh I'd rather probably go on my own.
i havent done a trip longer than 250 km away. is there anything i should know before i do my first small roadtrip like 1-2 days/1000km long ? should i have excessive knowledge of the internal machinery of my bike? or should i just service it and go? should i carry anything bike related with me ? because i dont have baggage on the bike or anything so ill only have a backpack.
>here too but we are probably using this time frame for our vaccation. Sorry guys I'm out.
are there many roads in the alps that are that low frequented so you can just stop on the road and take some pictures?
it was also somewhere down that hill where FKG crashed
SEF also took a headlight from that cbr and wanted to tape it to his klr
when was the last time you did an oil change? and depends on what you are doing? keep in mind, any thing more than an hour with a backpack on is shitty AF. I have this tossover bag that really helps a lot.
has your bike been reliable so far?
just service it if neccesary and go
take all the usual stuff you need to fix or oil for toping up with you
> anything i should know
stop every once in a while, dont ride for longer that 2 hours stright, stay hydrated and you are good to go.
pack a second sweater, it is better to have something to pull over and not be cold. riding while beeing cold is miserable.
Try to strap your backpack to the bike, at least I really dislike backpacks while riding
I just straped the backpack down on the rear seat with two straps
Tire plug kit
Hazard sign in case of crash (helmet cover versions take little space)
Toilet paper (!!!!!)
Small first aid kit
Basic bike toolkit
Make sure it's in good condition before the trip. Oil change if you want. Clean it, and clean the chain every 500 km or so. Maybe also bring some fuses and bulbs.
>are there many roads in the alps that are that low frequented so you can just stop on the road and take some pictures?
this picture was actually taken on the old closed down road of the Passo dello Stelvio you can sneek trough the barrier with a bike. The road there was still partly covered with snow there and isn't getting serviced anymore.
But besides that, with a bike you can stop pretty much everywhere and take a picture. not in the middle of open public roads though. But I guess in August is more traffic than in October when I went.
> i dont have baggage on the bike
A duffel and two bungies == luggage
cool, good to know, thanks.
I really need to go there this year too.
I can see your kennzeichen
yeah the bike is reliable its a yamaha after all.
didnt think the backpack was going to be such a huge problem. i used to have a top box on the bike but the fucker broke off when i drove over a bump on the road.
if you strap the backpack on the bike dont you have the anxiety of it falling down or a part of it getting tangled in the rear wheel or something?
destination is pic related btw
We're pretty much crossing half yurop to reach norway, so we can meet one way or another.
>are there many roads in the alps that are that low frequented so you can just stop on the road and take some pictures?
Yeah pretty much every single one, depending on the time.
Gee... for now I've contacted a few palces in north italy and the camps around lake bled,
they all told me to call back around march,
except for the main one that didn't answer at all.
I'm gonna try and contact them again mid february so we can start picking the spot.
>Did you at least hear of SWM?
>nope, whats that?
Old italian manufacturer that was resurrected from what was left of husky after the acquisition by ktm and a bunch of ching chongs.
>guessing 180kg wet
>more than 50hp (declared)
>falling down or a part of it getting tangled in the rear wheel
be sure to strap it with a proper tension belt. and not with a bungie cord. The later is in my opinion really critical safety wise.
thats how I strapped down my backpack. Stayed on the bike without a problem and that even over very ruff road or no road at all. with the MT07
thats a very interesting bike. looks promising
>proper tension belt
not sure If what I meant got lost in the translation
no, that is what zip ties are for lol. I agree with the other anon, if you can't find a bag or topcase, go for a duffel bag.
>all I had was a motorcycle, no car
>cold, icy roads, less than ideal conditions for riding
>get a car
It's nice being able to have the cozy heated cabin, being able to actually carry cargo with me, as well as being able to drink liquids while I'm driving.
But it's just not the same as riding a motorcycle. It doesn't feel as "fun", I don't feel the thrill, and I don't feel as "connected" to the road as I do when I ride. I'm even driving a manual. Does anybody else feel this?
welcome to my life currently.
i cant imagine a single bikebro who wouldnt feel this way exactly
>Yeah pretty much every single one, depending on the time.
you need to look for a different kind of feel when you are trying to pick a cage.
I got a Subaru Forester. It's probably the best option I could have made, AWD, lots of room inside (I'm like 6'3"), big windows to look out of, sunroof, etc.
I guess the next option would be getting one of those Jeeps with no windshield.
yes obviously anything not related to actual driving experience is better in a car. comfort, warmth, safety, passenger communication, music etc. but we love the bike when we are alone on it.
what i just really liked this woman for 3 months we talked a lot shes very cute couldnt help but like her told her she was like nah lad and i was like fair enough
i do have deep feelings for her though. i think about what i should do with her every night but truth is you cant force someone into liking you. i do feel some kind of compatibility with her though, we talk a lot, we hang out a lot, she just doesnt like me and it hurts a lot. and i cant be anything more than a 5/10 on a good day if i try really hard
yeah i cant do that friends thing. no offense but what i think of guys befriending women is their mindset is "ill be the good friend so shell realise im the best guy for her and fall for me eventually" and thats beneath me. i dont believe there is friendship between man and woman unless there is no desire between them. i can be SOMEWHAT good friends with a girl i dont like but thats about it. girls probably think they can be besties with a guy theyre not attracted to but that doesnt work the other way around.
>qt im keen on
>she always compliments my looks
>too cool to reply with anything other than "yea i know"
>each time she digs me more and more
im not that good looking but, you need to find a look that suits you and pull it off well.
>she was like nah lad
how you know it was because of your looks then? maybe she just aint into you bro, just how it is sometimes. doesnt help that you took so long to tell her whats up either, leave it that long and its less of a physical attraction thing and more of an emotional thing. if you two connect as friends just leave it at that.
How does one crash on a straight and then drown?
Pic from crash site off that website.
>no offense but what i think of guys befriending women is their mindset is "ill be the good friend so shell realise im the best guy for her and fall for me eventually" and thats beneath me
Maybe true if you're a desperate beta. If you're something of an adult it's pretty easy to say "relationship isn't going to happen but she's still good fun so we'll stay mates". Bitches are just people like.
>You'll never see another gs500e in front of mountains picture again
>He'll never post and have fun with us again
ive never had female friends. only females ive hung around with for a time are
a)friends of girlfriends
b)gfs of bros
c)relatives of bros
i also always go full attack mode when i meet a girl i like and thats got me in many good and many bad situations. the main bad thing is that you come off as an aggressive chad to shy girls you actually care about and they reject you on principle.
im trying to tone it down after the advice of a girl (psychologist, gf of a bro ofcourse) but it all comes down on how you want to see yourself.
>tl;dr never had female friends, dont believe in true man-woman friendship
It's a 79 xl250s. I got the carb cleaned and tuned all good and it runs like a top.
And in response to the questions about my front brake, it works. But brakes only slow you down and that's the stupidest thing I ever heard of
Reposting something I read on /mu/ the other day, it really resonated with me:
you too eh
I just keep telling myself that it's the same predictable shit every time. there's literally nothing to do but feel bad until it passes. breakups happen, and happiness happens after the breakup, and it's inevitable. there's no rushing it, there's just a lot of contemplation and brooding and overthinking until suddenly you're okay again.
the best thing you can do is find a friend and vent your heart out. discuss every aspect, discuss what went wrong and how to avoid the things that hurt you with the next person you meet, and what was good about the relationship that made the whole thing worthwhile. relationships are incubators to grow and learn, she affected you in a meaningful way and you have evolved through her, hopefully for the better. she is a brush stroke on the benevolent watercolour that is you. think about her impact, and what you can do to allow that impact to make you a better person.
you will be okay.
I totalled my bike, and I'm looking for a new stunt bike. Can anybody identify this bike? I can't find any model/year that looks like this,
please help /o/
i need an engine recommendation
what would be the cheapest dirtbike/crotch rocket engine to buy that is relatively small (in size) but is capable of going 60 mph
it doesnt have to be super small, but the smaller the better
as you can tell i dont know shit about bikes
250cc will get you to 60 and cruise there without blowing up. Look at the WR250, TW200, DR200, KLX250, XL250s/r, XT225
These all sell pretty frequently on the used market for cheap
90s dirtbike engine.
it's generally known as the most comfiest and least sportiest of the big 4.
I still like it though
just sold my fz-07 ... i think i made a mistake
it's p sick. Be careful with these carbs though, took me 500$ to get mine mixed because it needed new gaskets and they only made it for one year. Apparently you can't make them either because they're mainly asbestos.
They still make old aftermarket minuki carbs for about 150-200 for my bike, luckily.
Also it can cruise at about 50-55 happily, and 60 is manageable, but you gotta wind it way the fuck out to get up to like 75-80 and it wobbles pretty hard at anything past 65. You can manage highways on it, but not for super long. I stick to side/back roads when I can and only hop on the highways when absolutely necessary.
Sounds a lot like my 350 actually as far as speed goes.
>tfw almost 2000 in the "new bike" fund
i think that's all graphics. still looks like the most uninspired design.
the reliability is great. can't knock them for that. but something about hondas design just feels old school in a way. not old-looking, but old school thinking. idk how to describe it. my friends dad worked at honda as some kind of engineer, but for their cars. says they have some old rituals and habits. he didn't really elaborate. HRC feels this way too.
i dont know that much about how it stacks up against the others. just like the design, it feels just kind of 'there,' i don't notice it, good or bad. pic related
Its the same thing that plagues the new NSX. Honda tries too hard to do everything good instead of a few things exceptionally well.
Not that it really matters. Unless you're racing professionally you'll be fairly hard-pressed to actually lose due to differences between the newer superbikes' performance on track, as a good rider could easily carry a CBR1000RR past a mediocre rider on an Aprilia RSV4.
Plus they're still probably faster than mine, and I do well enough.
/Dbt/ why is the Cbr1000rr such such a shit bike? is it because Tadao Baba didnt desing it? or because it's shit?
>- guy that never ridden a bike nor even sat on one
>The Husqvarna 701 ENDURO will be available from November 2015 (February 2016 in the US and Canada) at authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles Dealers.
>can't differentiate a shitbike from a shit bike
you make me sick REEEEE-
I'll finance that bitch, I don't even care
In what terms is it a shit bike? Power? Yea it's lacking compared to Turbo Busas and S1000RRs. Handling? Yea it isn't as nice as new R1s, but the fireblade is overall a good bike, it's just everyone wants to have the "biggest, fastest" bike, thus it gets overshadowed by other bikes.
I mean, I guess you can always buy a fireblade after selling a R6, iirc R6 are godtier for tracking if you convert them, and fireblades are Kings in terms of livability/reliability.
I was doing a pretty gnarly hill climb with rocks at the top and bottom, but when I hit the rocks on top it seized because I guess I didn't rebuild it when I should have (I don't fucking know, it's a 2008 with a lot of hours) and I'm not quite tall enough to flat-foot it. So I fell, and the bike went 100+ feet down hill ass over tea kettle. It was spewing oil, and gas. Handlebar broke off, swing arm broke also. Parts are expensive as fuck.
Yep, bought a fuck load of XML LED thing but never got around to throwing them on, still need to do that.
Actually, I rewound the coil, forgot about that.
Trailtech regulator as well.
Still the stock head light though.
Can anybody recommend a good 2 stroke? I'm ready to make the jump and move from a four stroke to a 2 stroke. Preferably something I can use for enduro. Pic not related, my 12 y/o cousin's 2016 yz85
Did the rewound coil or aftermarket regulator make any difference with the stock light? And are you running the stock bulb an everything? I just bought a 2004 EXC with the stock headlight with an LED bulb. It's pathetic and I can't see shit, so I want to see if I can get street-worthy lighting without going to an aftermarket 12VDC electrical system for gud headlight compatibility.
>I just bought a 2004 EXC with the stock headlight with an LED bulb
lol get rid of that and put a silverstar or similar bulb in there, LEDs don't work for shit in a stock housing.
It didn't make any difference in brightness rewinding the stator, the voltage regulator will always keep the voltage at the same 13v or whatever it is.
The only difference is I can use the head light with the bike off now since it's a full DC system.
No, it's fuel injected. the choke is just a little cheater deal that locks the throttle open a tiny bit. The 2nd cable there adjusts it. Factory spec is just below 2.5K rpm.
Gonna repaint it and get some Marchesini M10Rs for it, then maybe a digital gauge so I can have my gear indicator back, some mirror-blockoff plates with turn signals in them and a rearview camera because fuck the stock mirrors.
yeah dont buy a ducati or any italian bike. My side fairings, rear cowl, and battery just mysteriously disappeared...what a unreliable bike.
i saw the choke and thought it was carb.
Does anyone know how to download facebook videos?
I know how to do youtube videos, but I want to make this facebook video into a webm.
>liking 90s decals
Just ripped off the decals off my Seca II, fux wit me nigga
>since it's a full DC system.
That's the main thing I wanted to know when I asked if it was stock lol. I don't know if I need to go DC or not.
But anyway are you saying the stock housing and AC lighting circuit should be plenty for night riding, as long as I have a good bulb in there?
I figured it out. Super easy, just delete www. and replace it with a m. Then simply just right click save as on the mobile version.
>But anyway are you saying the stock housing and AC lighting circuit should be plenty for night riding, as long as I have a good bulb in there?
Yeah, it worked fine for me.
The only reason I rewound is because I wanted LED lighting and extra power for grip warmers and a radiator fan.
>OK. Yours wasn't the factory street legal version was it?
I don't even know, I thought all 525EXCs were street legal?
They came with lighting and shit, the title said enduro which means it can be plated without anything done and no inspection.
(it is plated)
>bought my bike with the intention of committing auto suicide
>riding makes me feel too good
don't put her on the pedestal bro. I know what it feels like to be unable to make somebody like you, my girlfriend of 3 years recently broke up with me because she 'lost interest'. It never gets any easier, you just have to pretend that the rest of your life won't be as shit as you think it will
What year is it? Most EXCs were not street legal from the factory until like 2008 or something. The thing is KTM didn't write off-road-only all over the certificate of origin so lots of them got registered no problem. If it came with AC lighting then it probably wasn't street legal from the factory (some law requires lights to be usable without engine running).
AFAIK all factory street legal bikes will say MC on the title, not enduro.
I can tell you with high probability that it wasn't factory street legal.
It may have left the dealership with a plate but none of those EXCs from that time period were meant to be used on American roads.
Requesting the motorcycle version of this please.
>Can't even find bootlegs of Baiku Waifu Stickers
Feels bad, I'mma have to vector some garbage and get it printed.
gs500 is all the bike you need.
mlpfurfag and animefag there the same shit, autistic adults that masturbate to drawn animals and/or children.
Saw one in person. Comfy as fuck. Love the leather strap on the tank
you'd never know tho because I don't plaster it all over my shit and let it influence every aspect of my fucking life like stupid weaboos, they are really worrying 2bh, it should be classified as a mental disorder imo.
>it should be classified as a mental disorder imo.
also masturbating to drawn antropomorphic animals.
stay mad 2bh senpai, keep putting those stickers on your bike and collecting anime dolls, hope it works out for your virginity.
>Thinking people who buy stickers give a fuck what anyone thinks
> not being top edge and hating everything
It's like you're not even trying
This may be of interest to you, anon.
I also have the Honda logo if Hane's the one your heart desires.
actually that's the whole idea of a sticker, it's to show other people. I'm pretty sure you already know you like anime so why would you need to put the stickers on your bike if it's for you and not anybody else?
They match my Club's cut.
>dont worry, i will report them with multiple IP's everytime you post them
Pure, unadulterated autism.
Today i am selling my Alfa Romeo and getting BMW finally..
>says the literal retard autist
"i don't care what anybody thinks"
"that's why i'm putting anime stickers on my bike so people can see them"
kek, i grew up with them, and with some of them went to school.
U never been in Serbia mate.. girls look like that.
They don't say for nothing we got the best looking bitches in the world.
>dumb dogfucker cant deal with the fact that everyone, not only weeaboos treat them like trash
yiff in hell
>dumb weaboo is so butthurt that he has to deny being a weaboo just to get a word in edgewise and not be taken as a laughing stock
Get a load of this cvck.
Good enough time now to ask
Any of you guys decent with computers?
While I'm decent with alot of mechanical stuff I have very little computer experience
Water got spilt on laptop
Tap water if it matters (town not welll)
>Let it dry for a day and a half
>wouldnt turn on

>turn it on
>keyboard and trackpad don't work
> plug in mouse it works
What would be the next steps to repairing my keyboard
I don't really care about the trackpad, but it would be nice to get that working aswell
And yes I am asking here
Its a on topic as alot of other shit
Should probably have posted a picture for attention
> they say serbian has best looking girls
Lol maybe serbians say that because they to poor to travel to other countries than Serbia and thus never seeing anything different than your weird hoes
You're shit's fucked.
Try pulling it apart and cleaning the connections between the motherboard and the keyboard, there should be little ribbon cables connecting them to the motherboard. Be careful not to tear them when disassembling everything though, they're delicate.
>his only argument is to claim I am a weeb
tob kek, dumb dofgucker
>a false sense of superiority
i am superior to you on the basis that I am not a dogfucker
prove me wrong
I am not a dog, the dogfucker would not be attracted to me
Laptop is fully functional
(Other then shorter battery life ,than I recalled)
I'm assuimingna keyboard replacement wouldn't be too hard, but would it solve the issue (if cleaning didn't work)
i am not a weeaboo, keep trying tho, however since the best you can get is a fucking dog, im sure you already stopped trying kek
>his furfaggot posts are getting erased
top kek, yiff in hell dogfucker
Isopropyl or some sort of rubbing alcohol? Fuck idk, been that long since I've had to go balls deep into my computer.
Keyboard/trackpad replacement would be more pricey than cleaning it, though if the connectors on the motherboard are dirty it won't do shit.
>i'm not a weaboo
>using your cellphone to multiple report posts
Wow, pure fucking autism man, seriously consdier suicide.
you don't really need to worry about flaming furries anymore, they are too busy trying to murder each other on their own time
go to lulz.net
every 3 years they have a new witch hunt insisting that some new sub group within them is the cancer and they go full SJW tier in trying to ruin anyone involved in it, insisting they will all be pure once again after that group is gone
I've seen similar things mentioned by atheists criticizing islam
>furfaggot is this desperate of making an argument
>doesnt even try to deny the fact that i am superior to him on the basis that I am not a dogfucker
>gets buttmad his shit is getting erased, stopped posting dogs, and keeps claiming I am a weeaboo

Try Ebay or your local Craigslist/Gumtree equivalent for parts/whole laptops you could scrounge bits from.
Godspeed, Anon. Don't forget to ground yourself to get rid of any static electricity buildup before you start disassembly.
Will do tomorrow
Will also check in with my uncle who worked it if he has some special magic cleaning shit
I would also give a go at replacing the audio jack but I don't know anyone skilled enough to unsolder and resolder without harming anything else
