Why do people spend upwards of $15,000 on a small hatch back they think is kinda "sporty" when you could have one of the fastest production vehicles ever produced that is capable of making million dollar supercars look slow for that kind of money...?
Accept that you are poor and get a motorcycle.
poorfags need a car and cannot afford car and bike.
It is the people spending 25-40k on a sporty car that are wrong. They should have a nice sport bike and a cheap hatchback.
As someone who owns a motorcycle and a toyota I can agree.
Although my motorcycle is only an 01 zx6r it still hits 150 like a fucking champ. Only things that try to race me though are stanced honda civics.
I have however had a highway battle with a newer GTR, that shit was fun as fuck! I pulled on him at first but he flew by me shortly after which was kind of what I expected. We each gave each other thumbs up when he got off an exit, cool dude, looked like late 20's, had a dealer plate.
I've got a fund put away with close to 3 grand in it. Hope to sell my bike in a year or so and get another 3 grand while still saving and buy an R1.
Toyota for every day because fucking awesome reliability and a sport bike for all the fun! Plus cheap fucking insurance.
I'm 21 btw. Would never have it any different.
Ride on bike bros.
because some people need a car for basic human things.
and you can't do that as easily on a bike
so they get a car to fulfill their needs while still being somewhat enjoyable to drive
This statement is factual.
Only faggots don't like motorcycles.
Wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the Schott bike jackets. Pic related.
literally anything with armor. jackets without armor are for hipsters. i can't recommend a specific one as that would depend on weather/temperature/season and even what type of bike you ride. let alone if you wish to spend a hundred or hundreds. head over to revzilla and do some reading. Personally, I like alpinestars, and do not like leather jackets.
They are sold out already. The type of people who buy these bikes don't have 180k to burn, they have millions to burn.
>by a 328is for 3k
>go into a corner ten times faster than your crotch rocket
I ride year round: rain, sleet, or snow. But it never snows in SoCal. ;)
Can't find the pic I had of her, so have this one
It is 30 degrees F (0 degrees C) out, boo hoo. Stop being a pussy. Gear up and ride.
Of what I own or what bikes do? Have you never ridden a bike? If you want sauce there is a bajillion magazine articles written comparing lamborghinis and the like to superbikes. Your 328 ain't goona cut in honey. Unless it is raining that is.
You could never catch me in your Ford Focus.
Want more? Try to catch up.
Can't keep up? For shame.
See pic right below.
Horribly uncomfortable to wear compression garments stuffed full of armor. My elbow, shoulder, back, and chest pads aren't going anywhere anyways. We aren't wearing one piece suits here on a race track.
how is a motorbike for rain and wind ? is it good in snow
would panniers ruin your day
is it worth dressing up like a gimp
tail bags do look priddy good
>inb4 bags are for shopping
I have a hatchback and a bicycle
I only really use the car when the weather is very bad and I need to be somewhere quickly
that and its a bitch to haul anything that requires a frame backpack
anyone who doesn't have bags on their bike is a fair weather casual who doesn't venture more than an hour out of town. you have to be able to store the necessities at least. water, few tools, maybe rain gear or a warmer/cooler jacket.
man the new miatas are so cool why do they have to be so fucking slow? why the fuck do automakers insist on making cuck cars. throw a big turbo on that bitch and give me a warranty.
BariBari Densetsu is about racing motorcycles and is by the same guy as Initial D
The answer to your question OP, is people have become huge pussies terrified of any risk.
>tfw just got a 2014 daytona 675r but can't ride it because it has supercorsas on it and it won't stop fucking raining in the bay area
Also nice RF-1100. I had that EXACT same helmet last year, got the RF-1200 now. RF-1100 is way better.
what are your favourite bike games, /dbt/?
right now i have the urge to get one but i have no idea what's good. i haven't played a bike game since tourist trophy on ps2, which i loved. what would you recommend?
>muh lightweight meme
dude. come on. only a fag wouldn't trade a reasonable amount of weight for double or more horsepower. "lightweight" is what losers in hondas and brz tell themselves to feel better
They start sliding out at 25mph at 25° lean, it's absurd how bad they are in the rain. Nothing like almost losing the front when (very slowly) going around a 270° onramp in a light drizzle to wake you up. I've played around with tire pressures to find where they work best, and they're still terrible for the recent weather here.
Anyways, ripping these things off and putting Pilot Road 3's on soon I hope.
Thanks, will check it out next time I'm up for a helmet.
well shit thanks anon i'll be sure to never buy supercorsas. i don't think you should buy shitty street tires tho dude. while not my favorite, i have michelin pilot power 3s and they do okay in the rain. I never ride hard in the rain but I don't change my habits from normal. Is good in my book.
Yeah, I've been riding for a long time, do all the Twist of the Wrist stuff, know how to set up my suspension and tire pressures, and I still can't get these damn things to be tolerable in the rain. I'm sure they kick fucking ass on a track on a warm day, but I haven't had that chance yet.
I'm actually super depressed right now because it's gonna rain for the next two months straight because of El Niño. I'm hoping it will stop raining one Saturday and I can go change my tires out.
Pilot Road 3 is the best all around tire I've ever used (even better than the Pilot Road 4), so I'm gonna stick with them.
Put on Pilot Power 3s or Metzler M7rrs
Mostly because I dont want to get killed or even worse crippled when a soccer mom takes my priority or there's a 3 cm rock under my wheel. I get why people like it but the stakes are just way too high.
If you have to have something impractical to drive on the street how about a Spec Miata?
>less expensive than a liter bike
>don't need gear to drive it
>more fun to drive with a passenger
>turns way faster
>can race it in a competitive series with a stacked field
>that's not a race car
Weird, because it's a class winning Spec car, I wonder how it snuck into the grid
I know that I'd enjoy riding a bike. I know that it would be tons of fun. And this is exactly why I DON'T want a bike.
I know my risk profile. I know i would get addicted to the rush. I know I would push it to the limits. I know that I have fast reflexes, but I also know I'm fallible and will die a horrible death or suffer disfigurement if I get a bike. This fucking terrifies me. Maybe one day. .. Maybe when I'm 30
Do you have any clue what you're talking about?
Supercorsas are the stickiest street tires money can buy, they just suck in the rain.
Pilot Road 3's are 90% as grippy in the dry as Pilot Power 3's, and 100% better in the rain. They are far from shitty street tires if you know how to ride.
>Is this a shitpost fucktard thread?
Yes, check out this fucktwat
>miata on par with a S1000rr
>mv agusta unreliable because i read about it on the internet
and this moron
