You mean why does BMW make the best bikes?
I have a friend who wants to trade in both of his relatively new Guzzis for a R9T and it would still cost him at least 5k
Great looking bike in person
While that's a cool picture i find it hard to believe people are going to mud up their $10k-15k dollar boike, especially /dbt/ since we're all poor fuckers. obviously a promo image.
That boot hasn't moved in 30 years, it has like 10 zipties.
I did get into a neat little accident a while back but this only started happening randomly. To be honest, family, my bike just randomly leaks oil, coolant, and gas, whenever it feels like and magically stops. This isn't affecting performance but i'm worried a recent backfire might have 86'd my carb.
HP2 Megamoto, BMW built a bunch of different performance bikes out of the HP2. The coolest of course is the HP2 Enduro but I think they produced the least of those.
Pic related, HP2 Sport
/dbt/ doesn't understand the point of a fairing
The goldwing will willy so it's at least better in that aspect r than my 250
Will hopefully be in Austin early April 2016
Let me know when you're ready to sell and il throw you $100 or so to hold I (if before)
Worst case scenario il have it shipped
Hopefully won't be over $400 for shipping
Yeah basically that's the only BMW that I like. However I'd have liked it much more if it was attainable to a poorfagpolack because fucking hell last time I saw one for sale the seller wanted 20k yuropoors
A back fire wouldn't really hurt the carb, but it certainly could dislodge the boot.
Have you checked the valve clearances?
It could just also be the one carb that backfires unning lean too.
I got a guy offering me a good ass price on a running GS500, but it's got no front fender. How much should I expect to get bent over for the parts I need to get and install a new Fender for the suzuki? I have a set of torque wrench and I can do the install myself.
Fuck that, do something interesting with it. That's all a gs500 is for
what's a good ass price for a gs500 with no front fender, 200€?
I'm going to have to take it to a guy, this shit is above my brain power.
No but then my computer isn't a first gen V4 engine.
$700 CAD, carbs are clean, Tires have tread left, new fork seals, oil could use a change though.
I'll do that after I finish my degree and have time and money, for now I need something dirt cheap to get to and from classes, and I -only- have a bike license.
Taking the cams out isn't even a big deal as long as they have timing marks. I much preferred checking/adjusting the DOHC shim style valves than the SOHC screw+jam nut style valves in my thumpers. Mainly because the radiators made it super hard to get to the exhaust valves on the SOHC engine.
So I'm in my sister's room, masturbating on her bed and I've looked up to see the writing she did back during her edgy phase
It's kinda cute, the innocence of her insistence of not being innocent
>$700 CAD, carbs are clean, Tires have tread left, new fork seals, oil could use a change though.
not too bad actually
regarding your question, I guess you'd only have to buy that fender, shouldn't be too expensive I think
I live in the Pacific Northwest, riding season is nearly all year if you don't mind getting wet. In a full face rain is w/e, the only time rain bothers me is when I get rainspots on my glasses and have to clean them.
The guy prior to this one unbolted that shit and it's lost to the aether.
Ok I'll admit the AT isn't very pretty when clean, but if your at is clean you're doing it wrong
Well idk hondas seem to naturally gravitate towards maximum shitbike
Poland anon I think you're bike has seen more dirt in its lifetime than my wr.
You're a gud boi
But top heavy
Wes Siler has given the NC700X the adventure seal of approval for it's low COG making maneuvering really easy and the AT has some things towards that effect as well
>Tfw more horsepower than a Honda civic
>tfw ripping throttle.
Wait for 2020, then they'll be cheap
I've shitbiked on gravel roads with a goldwing
Has anyone ever bought a bike from ebay? Like, if I buy it do I just pay and go pick it up, or will the seller want me to pay him cash when I go pick up the bike?
Also, about buying a bike, is it the same as buying a car? Just get the title and register the bike at dmv and that's it? I've heard people selling bikes and then the new owner getting tickets sent to the previous owner or something like that, not sure how all of that works.
>Like, if I buy it do I just pay and go pick it up, or will the seller want me to pay him cash when I go pick up the bike?
Email the seller and ask. You should probably look at it in person anyway.
Don't buy and have it shipped, that's gay.
>Just get the title and register the bike at dmv and that's it?
Yes, you'll need insurance depending on state.
>I've heard people selling bikes and then the new owner getting tickets sent to the previous owner or something like that, not sure how all of that works.
Probably because they're riding around with the old owners plate.
Their fault for not unregistering it.
Is it BMW time on deebeetee?
>tfw riding bimmer to flat chested qt's house
no clue bruh. I prefer stats and whatnot, more pertinent to my major.
It's relaxing tbph. When I can't find my cheat sheet I derive keplers third law and first orbital speed from harmonic oscillations (a=-2Apifsin(something rather, sometimes 90 degrees))
Or the gravitational constant from knowing the radius of the earth and surface acceleration.
you keep using this module word, where you from? we didn't use that where I grew up.
that's why I had no idea what you are saying.
trig is p enjoyable tbqh.
but i could rap so fuck school i'm too cool to go back.
Tbph I'm leaning way more towards physics than maths, particularly when all there is to do is fitting a bunch of equations together and ending up with something monstrous like x=tbphfam/ay^2lmao and seeing everything cancel out until all that's left is the exact thing you're looking for.
Tfw you get all the way to eeloo, jettison the last stage and unity physics fucks up and tears your vessel apart
Tfw you accidentally enter the atmosphere of laythe at 10 km/s and burn up before heat was even implemented (turns out 180 degree inclination is not the right way to rendezvous)
Tfw you successfully rescue crew on a dead vessel in impact trajectory
Fuck the mun tho. Minmus is where it's at. Particularly now that you can use it as a refueling outpost
>tfw you have to redirect a class E asteroid onto the surface of kerbin
>tfw you find one that's already on a collision course
>tfw you arm your vessel with like a million parachutes to slow down the fall and use the asteroid as a heat shield
>tfw it enters pretty much straight down and burns up either way
>get an order for 1500 units of ore from minmus
>the tank gets destroyed via lithobraking
A really, really shallow entry. So shallow you'll barely slow down enough to stabilise the orbit on the first loop.
Then send like ten vessels made entirely of parachutes and a grabbing arm to help with slowing down in the lower atmosphere
I ran out of pics of my bike so i just keep posting the same ones.
So i'm not going to post my bike.
Besides it needs some more work done before i can take it places for glamour shots.
You just made me realize I don't even have a photo of my LB3 anymore. I keep its key on my car keys as a reminder that something dear to me has been taken and I still own the papers, but I never got it back and the Police is fucking useless.
Now I'm sad and drunk.
is this actually a dbt posters bike or did you find this pic on a forum or something
So I drove a Crosstrek today. I kinda liked it. Didn't feel too slow the first couple gears are pretty close so I think that kinda makes up for the lack of power. I wonder if I can haul a bike on my trailer with it, hmmm
I bet you could, unless your bike is a CVO road glide. I liked it, it was a nice drive and a bit of fun. kind of reminds me of a gen1 forester.
Honestly the only thing that felt weird to me was the steering. It has electronic power steering and it's oddly twitchy on the highway. Maybe I'm just too used to sloppy steering from all my old ass cars kek.
It's a 2013 with 19k on it, looked factory new in and out. Guy's asking $18.5k for it
He has another one, fully loaded CVT, he said he hates the CVT but that's his wife's car and he just drives his truck these days.
Not sure yet, gonna talk to the wife about it. She was working when I went to look at it.
I doubt I'd be able to talk him down at all. Apparently some other lady drove it and loved it, told him to call her before he sold it to anyone. May have just been a sales tactic though.
that's an entry level sales tactic. how long has it been listed for? If the other lady likes it so much, she'd have bought it now. you know when you want something, thaty the decision has been made for the most part. he's just trying to slang that shit badly.
I really like the looks and small size of the ducati scrambler, but im not loving that price tag
Are there any cheaper alternatives on the US market?
Little fat man who sold his soul,
Little fat man who sold his dream ...
Pathetic little fat man,
No one’s bloody laughing,
The clown that no one laugh’s at,
They all just wish he’d die.
He’s so depressed at being hated,
Fatso takes his own life,
He blows his stupid brains out,
But the twat would probably miss.
He sold his soul for a shot at fame,
Catchphrase and wigs and the jokes are lame,
He’s got no style, he’s got no grace,
He’s banal and facile, he’s a fat waste of space
The little fat man with the pug-nosed face, Pug, pug, pug, pug
>Scrambler 400, now pls fuck off to /fa/ hipstercukc.
its a castrated r6, with shit forks and shit engine.
I don't know anything about it but I'll take a guess. The first thing I noticed was the conventional forks, unlike current supersports. I would also bet it has a very detuned engine (similar to FZ6) or a completely different engine.
Actually R6S's are pretty much inline with the 07-09 R6
If you look anywhere on the internet and look at numbers they are both pretty equal, sometimes with the S coming out on top. Yamaha's "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" bike.
All you yamaha and honda faggots arguing over which bike is .00001 of a second faster can go die in a hole.
But at least we can all agree this faggot is the worst
>handlebars AND a steering wheel
I just can't
Someone have the first I ride the grom then I ride your mom pic?
Want something new with as much power but a little bit lighter ;)
Went fur a ride today with a friend who just got a new (to him) suzuki 500, shit was cash.
fucking hektik skids m8
almost thought it was an XL250s and I was gonna salute a brotha but either way siq shitbikes anon
It's a beautiful looking year model 02-03, I wish you would provide some sort of reasoning before saying something sucks? What are you basing your opinion on? Ever ridden one yourself? I've heard noobs have problems shifting into second gear and break them but I have had ZERO problems with mine, 60,000 km's on clock so far.
I need a dashboard for my bike. It already has the wires and guages to attach a trail-tech unit (had one installed at one point). I hate the trail tech Vector I have on my KLX though. Should I go ahead and slap a Vapor on my new machine or are there better options?
that generation just has a transmission defect that's all, it's not about noob vs not noob it's if you get lucky or not, it's incredibly common.
Mysteriously enough the new 2015 R1 got recalled over a 2nd gear issue too.
Only other issue i've heard for 02-03 r1 model is "prone to wheelie" I don't see this as a flaw :D
Wow those beautiful new 2015 bikes being recalled already? Bad luck! Get your shit together yamaha!
By selling my soul to the skid demon and pinning it
still can't get it faster than 80 in 5th though no matter how hard I wind it out
wow please no hate okay?
He obviously went into maximum over-rev mode.
Honestly my speedo might be fucked, or I could have shifted into 4th and not remembered. Still, saying "I got my shitty old ass 250 to go 60 in 3rd" is more impressive and I'm gonna go with that story :^)
also technically I haven't dropped my bike, my dad accidentally knocked it over when backing his truck out the driveway one morning
just own up to it m8, dropping your shitbike isnt a bad thing as long as you arent on flat dry ground
I would be greentexting liek a mofo if I dropped my bike. The only time I came close was when I whiskey throttled it during the test ride, right in front of the seller. Somehow I managed to get it on both wheels. The guy asked me if I'd ever ridden a bike before and seemed very nervous about selling it to me lol
Sadly I haven't been able to do any real shitbiking as of yet. I live in Houston currently and there's not many spots for some good hooning/camping. Might take a trip up to the national forest that's like 2 or 3 hours out of the city one weekend, but I gotta make it go around my work schedule.
>with all that traction
will do mang
going to try studding the tires next time
because that rainy webm was before my pop backed into the bike, brah
I got no shame in admitting when I dump a bike, it just hasn't happened yet
I've stalled it a lot and accidentally shifted into neutral a bunch of times thougy
Well then I suggest an obscure Japanese bike.
Pretty much anything Japanese that's common
>Overnighting parts from Japan tier
Obscure Japanese bikes
>Italian Job tier
>Constant Tinkerer tier
Royal Enfield, Ural
Old British bikes, anything pre 1960 that isn't Japanese
Gonna try to drive my Camaro to work tomorrow. Wish me luck kek.
I dunno if mine's a good one to base it off of considering it's a fucking beater, but they're tanky little bastards. As long as you feed it gas and change the oil, it'll treat you right. Like I said earlier the fastest it'll get is about 80mph at redline, but it cruises happily around 55. Anything faster than like 65 gets some pretty spoopy wobbles and vibrations considering it has no fairings and is light as all hell. It feels like a meaner and faster mountain bike, I love being able to flick it around. Kickstart only so as long as you aint a bitch you'll have a good time.
It's a great DD and toy, but I wouldn't recommend it for long highway tours or anything. They're doable on the highway, but only when absolutely necessary.
at least do a wheelie or something m8
Can't. Gotta be nice to my new posi for 500 miles.
Don't get me wrong I absolutely love my XL and probably will never sell it, but I also know that I'm probably gonna upgrade to something bigger by the end of this year. Probs gonna get dat new husky 701 and give my little bro the 250 if my parents don't shit their pants over it
holy shit, i need cash.
meant to post this one, i need to put all my Marauder and Vstrom pics & webms in separate folders
S10 rear discs and still stock fronts. Might do C5 front brakes when I feel like investing more money in it.
Damn that looks clean as fuck.
>Do a wheelie or something
more than most
>tfw he doesnt want to trade
>mfw the led panel I bought comes with gopro mounts
helmet mounted LED light for looking around corners when riding?
if she doesn't eat ass, she ain't worth the gas.
No, the one I'm looking at is a 5-speed manual. Fuck CVTs
Tryna trade the van for it?
great stuff for offroad riding or alley sweeping
this summer i'm going to attempt part of the eastern green part of this loop to get a taste for some actual offroading
new endurokex video
>tfw no shitbike to ride down trails and blast vaporwave+supereurobeat on
why live DBT?
>pic related; ideal shitbike
I know this feel, but I used to have the feel before.
>owning a computer so weak that it doesn't require a v4 engine as the pump for the cooling system
I bought it after not running for 35 years for 600$. rode it for a month, fixed it up a bit, and sold it for 800.
>buy BMW motorcycle
>keep getting BMW shit in the mail
>literally stacks of letters every week advertising more BMW motorcycles, random magazines and riders clubs/special services
>fucking letter from my dealership every 4 weeks that can be summed up as "we love you pls come back and buy more"
I ALREADY BOUGHT THE GS
WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT
Though some of these are pretty funny desu senpai, like the discounts for hearing aids.
well consider this, it was in this garage when I got it. It wasn't running when I got it, and I got it to leak oil like a champ.
>I got it to leak oil like a champ
So uh, sorry to break it to you but getting a machine to leak oil like a champ isn't exactly a "good thing".
are you fucking around on the DOT sand piles?
i had a 125cc that had the same top speed and the acceleration was bad if you needed to turn on a busy road but just bought a bike a week ago because i want something that can actually cruise at 65-70mph. cant ride the thing though because its 10f and icy i just jumped on buying it because it was a good deal
>Not taking stock in duct tape because of how much duct tape you need for your seat
Are BMW cars really that bad?
I loved my bike and it make me kinda want to get a BMW car when I get around to owning a car in the future but the whole internet universally shits on them constantly.
