Is this truly the K-ON of our generation?
>the director literally said he aims to make "chaika x k-on crossover with bikes"
>no chaika tier action or bants
Less amazing. It feels more like K-on with bikes guest staring Chaika from the Coffin Princess Series.
I can't for the life of me find a good picture to illustrate so this will have to do.
Imagine these two lying down on the grass or a bed, still facing each other.
I put my forehead against hers in such a way that her right and left eyebrow contact my right and left eyebrows respectively.
I then rapidly rub my head back and forth like I am trying to start a fire all why going "VVVVRRRRROOOOOM"
All gently, of course
That's how you motabike a qt's eyebrows.
Maybe this anime will finally fill the K-on sized hole in my heart
Why are idiot characters always so

>you will never own this bike
Piss bottles make it worthwhile.
In my country you can't even go to college if you don't have a home address but that's besides the point.
I'm already working hard to change my life and hopefully I can live an un-poor life before the turn of the year.
And maybe then I can also get my motorcycle license and a fun motorcycle.
>Tsundere blonde twintails with MASSIVE HONKERS
T-thanks, now I'll never stop thinking about handling men when I ride my bike.
And an amazing ass. Literally perfection.
i mean the type of bike, not its specific name or something
>go to guggure
>search for naked bike image
>see LBGT/femenazi shit
Also, I did some google and the next best thing I see is a "cruiser bike". But that's not quite like it tho
Fucking product placement, now I'm considering buying a CB400
Kawasaki > Suzuki > Yamaha > BMW > Honda> Vespa > Ducati > Harley Davidson

Looks good so far
I think they are pretty cool.
I really like that classic look.
Rate my motabaiku
I don't actually own it though.
yes. Team green, Team red, Team Blue, Team Yellow are the major japanese brands. I've only met a few actual fanboys who talk shit about other brands. Most of them are week end Harley riders.
I have green and red myself, but I'm pretty much an idort all around (I have own blue before). When it comes to gear though, then I'm an RS Taichi whore.
I actually like old scooters. I almost bought a Mitsubishi silver pigeon a few years ago. It was beat to shit though, so I passed since I didn't want to try to source parts or fabricate any.
Was the deep blush when called cute not enough?
Yeah I'll wait and hope for something better.
And one for worst girl who should be introduced next episode if I remember the earlier chapters correctly.
Her butler is 11/10 BASED though.
have these gifs i made
they might be a little sloppy though
IRL suzuki riding Katana, it's impossible for her to ride it.
It's only 150cc but I'm already saving money to buy it and to get a licence.
I think that's the seiyuu in the image he posted, you goofball.
Thanks, there's also a naked version of this 150cc bike which make me confused which style to pick.
Did they make Rin's ass and tits even bigger in the anime? They were perfect in the manga.
upcoming 2016 Honda CBR250RR is sexier tho ($1500 more expensive)
I wanna go VROOOOOOM VROOOOOOOOOOM on this one.
Meanwhile this is what honda 150cc looks like in my country
Shit sucks mang
>some say she was born with a helmet on
>and that she is confused by stairs
>all we know is that she's called the stig
In Japan, only trucks are lethal.
I feel so bad for Rin. She has a great bike from an excellent motorcycle company and gets no respect from anyone.
Pic related, it's my Suzuki GS850
My dad has been riding bikes since he was 15. I could ask him to teach me but I don't know what to say when asked about how I got interested in bikes all of the sudden.
That's not a cafe racer.
It's a standard or naked bike.
Cafe racers usually have a single saddle with short straight handlebars and are extremely stripped down with no fairings or extras.
>bikes break down all the time and you spend money on repairing them all the time
Is that true?
The 1200CC ninja and the ducati are the only pricier ones; stig isn't a highschool girl and the other is rich as fuck
Hane rides a cheapo Honda, Suzutits has her father's old bike and Afro's dad owns a dodgy used bike shop.
its not very believable fiction. "fiction" isn't a carte blanche excuse to do whatever you want without explaining anything. you still need to establish some rules in your universe so things can make some sort of sense. just plopping girls on expensive motorbikes does not accomplish that.
so they suck dad dick?
Rin got hers from her parents
Hiji got Ducati because she's filthy rich
Onsa's bike are pretty much dirt cheap
Hane's CB400 are pretty cheap actually(about 5 grand before tax). Besides her parents working overseas means she's pretty well off
Only the stig girl remained unexplained. Shit's pretty steep, though not Ducati/KTM steep
>Onsa's bike are pretty much dirt cheap
unless she's getting a huge allowance, she shouldn't have any income in the first place to buy ANY bike
so she's definitely selling her mouth to dirty old men
>The 1200CC ninja and the ducati are the only pricier ones

If we try to compare similarly marketed machines, lets compare a mass market sport oriented car like the Ford Mustang or Honda Civic Si. Compare those to a Honda CBR500 or hell even the newer i4 650 bikes, they are a fraction of the price and are built and designed to be far more mechanically inviting/interactive/involving. This requires the machinery to be made with higher maintenance in mind, not necessarily "breaking down".
I was foolish when I was younger and commuted on a 2002 GSX-R600 for over five years. I alternated her with a beater Honda Accord from the early 90s, however I still managed to put on about 50,000 original miles. I replaced the chains, had the valves shimmed and serviced, did my own oil changes every 3500 miles consistently and went through at least half a dozen set of tires.
Not once was I left behind with a catastrophic failure.
tl;dr: bikes don't break down more often, they just require much more involved and preemptive maintenance compared to a light-switch reliable Toyota or Honda.
They're not, but intrinsically the motors are much more demanding and higher revving from smaller displacements which effects the life span.
Its nothing to do with being crippled deliberately - it all has to do with performance.
Tell him you watched Onani Sunday
also, go for it! Family bonding is amazing. I wish I would've had more in common with my dad, but I inherited all of his bad traits and possibly his cancer so yeah.
So how good are bike's suspension when you hit bullshit on the road that you didn't notice until the last second?
>I wish I would've had more in common with my dad,
I started watching soccer because I wanted to have some hobby that's not excessively nerdy. Just to be closer to the people. Now I at least can talk about it with my father.
Depends on the bike and setup
You are taught to ride within your sight lines and look where you want to go, but if you're full lean, constant steady acceleration will save you from a low-side most of the time.
Chopping the gas and using front braking will cause you to go down though if you hit rough stuff which takes some learning
Well, he's in an urn now, not like I can bond with him anymore. I do still have the bite marks he gave me. Anyways, enough blogging. More Bakuon!!
>chaika x k-on
Rin is a miracle of the universe.
A better question is how they got to use the Ducati name
You always feel it, the better the suspension the less you do but you always feel it to some degree.
That's why you have to practice and really know what you're doing a bike so you don't panic and crash like an idiot. Bumps and shit don't matter, the bike is extremely stable so long as you maintain constant acceleration and don't break or try to slow down suddenly in the middle of a turn.
The only time it gets kinda hektik when you hit a bump or something mid turn is if it's raining because the rear tire can slip. It's pretty spooky when you hit one of those bump reflector things in the middle of the road in a turn when its whet and you can feel the tire slipping a tiny bit for a few seconds.
I wonder, will people make itabikes like this?
because any PR is good PR, even Ducati (of Japan) realizes that.
Of course, anon.
Not really, but we all like to collectively shit on Harley, maybe a little light BMW/Ducati/Anything Italian bullying on the side but we're all pretty chill with each other.
Except Harley fags, fuck those cruiser cucks. Fuck Harley isn't even really featured in Baku-on because it's fucking trash and has no market outside America.
Only if you buy some old piece of shit carbed bike I guess.
Stop posting that meme study, the statistics for that account accessory failure (panier mounts breaking off, etc) so they're retardedly skewed. Of fucking course manufacturers who primarily sell sport bikes to squids wont have high accessory failure, when have you ever seen a gixxer with panniers?
They're not made to be deliberately unreliable. They just operate at much higher and demanding operating conditions than say a run of the mill 1600cc B16 Honda that redlines at 7K or so at best?
Compare that to the fantastic new inline-twin CB500 series sold in North America, those redline to 9500rpm or close to that and they'll only require the same wear-and-tear replacements like my Gixxer 600 did in the post above, minus perhaps the valve adjustments because Honda or some shit. That Honda Civic is still going to require: oil changes, tire changes, alignment, transmission fluid changes, etc... All just normal, simple maintenance. And just like on the car, the bike will survive most of the casual Honda owner's neglect.
Bakuon got one thing right: Hondas break down significantly less frequently and with more abuse/neglect than the others in the Japanese Big Four.
I don't speak ching chong, you fucking retard. I'm asking what sub is best since it'll never get a dub, you stupid nigger.
I'm with this guy.
Though, seeing as it takes place in Japan, probably literally never. I only skimmed around the manga before the show started, but there didn't appear to be any
The author already covered Harley Davidsons extensively in one of his previous works, pic very related
Its as cute as you anon. Take that as you will.
of what i have read they dont really do any serious racing (keyword serious) but they at least ride often and do other bike related things often
[spoilers]i never saw k-on, so can someone explain the no music meme thing to me[/spoilers]
Im not that guy but I found that on Google fairly quickly.
As the other anons said, it's more about touring and bike culture.
However the latest few chapters were about a race for the school festival.
Although I don't think the anime will get that far.
This show is seriously not doing it for me. I want to like it, but it's just so badly executed. The characters are cookie cutter, their designs look like they the person making them has no grasp of anatomy (especially pink), the voice acting is sub-par, the animation is terrible, and the direction is amateurish. I want to like it, the promise seems like it could be a lot of fun, but the effort / skill just seems to be lacking.
I love how people are calling MC a retard whan, according to the other two, she chose smartly, because the bike needs less work and hassle than the suzuki or whatever friz-hair is riding.
Gotta love that double standard, just because she likes making bike sounds...

Watch the special hour-long episodes. Particularly, the Botswana special, Arctic special, and the one where they drive around in the American south and get chased by angry rednecks
Get this and boast on /o/. No VROOM VROOM though.
Its a street tuned mid displacement twin. You aren't going to have any peaky power issues with it, and it has enough in it to keep you happy for a good while.
An i4 600cc supersport will be peaky and not a fun time for learning
I luvu my motobaiku
thanks anon, before we get called out for not being anime is there anything to look out for when buying old sv's? I have a checklist for buying used moto's in general but nothing for specific motos
They practice their instruments or whatever at least once an episode usually but the actual concert-type things where they actually sing and play in an episode are generally only in the school festival episodes and the one where Sawako goes to her friend's wedding
So yeah, no music.
I was just joking, but you need a fast bike in order to get you out of trouble sometimes. For example, not every cars behind you would be so kind. There are assholes that would just bump you from behind, unbalancing your bike.
Of course, good old hammer or any formidable self-defense weapons would work too.
i'd it's the same as for any other moto. knowing if the engine was/is restricted would help too
Every Bakuon thread I can, I'll post this.
seriously anon, please be safe if you are going to try riding because of this anime
A few retards like >>139711061 will pick a brand they've never even sat on and spew shit like you wouldn't believe - but we already know the most cancerous fanbase is also the loudest.
H-Ds are hellishly comfy, and dat mix of the solid transmission, vibration, and torque curve on an 883. It's hard to put into words, but your brain will scream FUCK YEAH once or twice. Also superb brakes. Pity about the cornering potential though.
Seat, Ergos, and handling status
[ ] Not Comfy
"Do want" and "can afford" don't go hand in hand. I don't like the 'not a carb but looks like a carb' fuel injectors, seems pointless. Also every guy in their brochure looks like a hipster douche.
I'll define bullshit as anything up to and including a 2x4 or average potholes.
Yes you'll feel it. No it won't buck you off or force you down. The more confident you are in the bike's ability to stay upright, the better the bike stays upright. Also the backdraft off a semi will knock you around more than a pothole will.
Yes to both. SV650 has a friendlier torque curve, but the 500 won't leave you wanting. Personally I think the Suzuki has the nicer of two uncomfortable seats. The engine in the 500 is used in a Kawasaki cruiser along with that slightly bigger Ninjette, so don't worry about a peaky power band or anything you'd find in a fully fledged sportbike.
Take a class anon. It's the best way to learn.
2 years ago I had no idea how to ride now I have 2 bikes and ride as much as I can.
It's not rocket science, just start out slow and learn how to look out for everything else on the road.
>I was riding motorcycles while other anons in /a/ were in grade school
Feels old, man.
In many states the classes are dirt cheap.
In my state it was $50 for a weekend course that on graduation gave me the ability to gain my motorcycle endorsement.
Now is the best time to look and sign up. Don't hesitate!
Only acceptable reasons to be on a scooter instead of a motorcycle
>Age / Injury
>Beyond poorfag and it was free
>it's a big fucking touring scooter that's comfy as a Goldwing for 1/5 the price and has a shitload of patches from all over the country on it.
It's painfully hard to justify a scooter. It's like taking all the fun out of riding in this cold unfeeling pursuit of user friendliness & practicality.
>being such a paragon of masculinity that you don't need to compensate
average height of a japanese female is 5'2
find out how you fit on your waifu's bike
He might be right. You won't find this perfection in real life.
I just watched the OVA today. It was cute, the CGI sucked so much they really improved it for the first episode.
Anything with a scooter frame, engine under 50CC, and clutchless transmission is exempt from needing a license, plate, or insurance locally. We don't call them scooters. We call these kinds of license-less bikes "mopeds" for reasons I've never bothered to ask about.
By that definition we need to have scooters licensed, plated, and insured so cost of ownership post purchase is about equal.
>gender ambiguous character on a scooter
>"paragon of masculinity"
Anon I think you're doing it wrong.
I think you might have missed a word in there somewhere.
She's a huge Suzuki fangirl and kind of a tryhard at that.
There's nothing better for her than proudly wearing a big "S" in her perfect chest.
