First for Suzuki
I'm riding 155 miles each way today to visit family for Thanksgiving. I hope I don't get pulled over for having a suspended licence. Cops in NY hate motorcycles.
Have a nice ride frens.G0

How do I overcome my fear of motorcycles, my parents bombarded me with horror stories about people becoming cripples and vegetables
Any request for eicma?

>>24871950>my parents bombarded me with horror stories about people becoming cripples and vegetablesMy mommy hates the word motorcycle but you gotta think about the shit your average cageoid mother sees motorcyclists do. To them speeding is like 5-10 over. 15 over to them is insane. Also motorcyclists generally are responsible for their own deaths and all the pain they put themselves through.
>>24871952Zero has a fucking maga slogan
>>24871950You're not supposed to not be afraid you're supposed to know what the fuck you're doing. If you commit to understanding how the bike rides and getting better the irrational fear goes away.That being said it's inherently dangerous.

Should I buy a 40 year old suzuki 2 stroke?
>>24871995How is that even a question? Obviously you should.
yep honda bros, im thinking we're back
>>24871989I've been seeing chink manufacturers creep into the market for the past few years and honestly I feel sorry for anyone who buys into them because it's little more than a scam. Where I live scooters dominate the market and especially the low cc market with chink brands (Sym, Kymco) being best sellers. Their shitty reliability doesn't seem to matter to people since they're so cheap. But that generally means that if you're looking into smaller cc bikes your options are limited because any proper bike costs upwards of 4k yuros and deemed as "not worth it" and there's just not many of them going around as scoots so people end up with those.Then some people think that "oh look at that it's a proper low cc bike that costs much less than the competition" and buy into it hoping to get onto two wheels and they just dump their money down the drain with those.Zontes are especially notorious for shitty reliability, bad dealer support and changing their models 3-4 times a year which means that if you have a last year model and try to sell it used the price is tanked because there's been multiple revisions to it since then, also you're pretty much a sucker for buying into it when the same money will get you more things 6 months later. CF moto is newer into the market but they're growing faster, they've somehow successfully conned people into thinking they're a legitimate manufacturer and even magazines are picking them up for reviews now against established brands. Never trust chinks.
I woke up early enough but procrastinated in bed so TOMORROW I'll go have a zinc cover cut, definitely
>>24871902Get chrome gaiters
>>24872031I dunno, I know a guy who works at a bike shop and works on a bunch of bikes and he says that Sym and Kymco are pretty good for what they are. Actual PRC made bikes are garbage though
>>24871970Not going to happen to me, I took my freedom pass and renew my subscription to society every month because I'm a good citizen and care enough for the common good to get vaccinated ::::-----))))
>>24871970Lmfao how retarded do you have to be to fall like that?
>>24871952Just ligma, pls
>>24872047They're undercutting the competition by a big amount in price so if they survive 4-5 years they're perceived as worthwhile. However they're just leeching off of japanese brands, copying their styling and model range and they're definitely not as reliable. A friend of mine bought a 2019 model scoot off of them, I think a Kymco one but I can't easily differentiate them, and within 6 months the ignition coil cable just snapped for no apparent purpose. The scoot was under warranty but it took 6 months for the part to arrive. And ok perhaps the warranty issues were dealer specific but random failures like that which you don't really expect happening on any bike, let alone a brand new one is exactly the kind of behavior you expect from shitty chink bikes. They don't break down in the usual ways most other bikes do, it's a roulette where everything and anything can break at any moment, even parts that are not under any specific stress but the build quality is so shitty that they'll just break all the same.

>>24872183Cagoids should know their place. There is nothing more annoying than taking off from a light or a turn and seeing the pigfag cage box sit slowly take off after a 1 second delay only for them to spend the next mile trying to do 20+ over to catch up with you. I always punish them by either not letting them pass if they go around or blasting off.

That AIDs-ridden nigger sure does talk a lot of shit for someone who doesn't ride a respectable motorcycle more than maybe once a month.

Any suggestions for babby's first bike? I need to do highway speeds. Looking at a honda cb300r or cb300f. Ideally i'd like to keep it kinda cheap.
>>24872263>Any suggestions for babby's first bike?>I need to do highway speeds.On the news next week
>>24872263Depends on the highway speeds. Up to 65mph the cb300r is fine. For up to 80 you might want the cb500f.Also consider a drz 400 or klr 650
>>24872275Most roads are 55 here with a small section of 70, so 65 will be fine.
>>24872263>I need to do highway speedsHAYABUSA
>>24872263Z400 and MT03 would be better as commuter bikes, sit on a versys 300 too if you can. The CB300, and the bmw G310, are a bit anemic at most speeds they're basically next decade's msf bikes>>24872275>drz 400 or klr 650also not bad but you're going to be hard pressed to find these used in this market for less than msrp and they're more expensive than the other bikes out the door

I dropped my fucking bike in the driveway bros...https://streamable.com/f2vqfk
Guys someone knocked my bike into this triumph, picked the triumph up and wedged it into my bike. in order to get out I'd have to lay the triumph down.What do?
>>24872402This is utterly fucked. I say try and find the owner or wait till they show up, explain the situation, then both of you try to get his bike out of the way so you can leave.If nothing else then take pictures and put them on a sharing site. Put that URL and an explanation on a note on his bike, and try your hardest to get it out of the way without laying it down. I wouldn't lay it down if that's the only option. I'd just be late and wait for them to get there.
Happy Thanksgiving my bros
>>24872410He has a disc lock and brake lock on so I can't move it an inch and it's a triumph so I can't lift and move the front wheel because it's like 550lbs. If I lay it down for 60 seconds, move my bike then pick it back up that's the best I can do. Otherwise I could just leave it there until he comes back which could be tomorrow or next Monday idk
>>24872419Do what you gotta do. He knew the risks when he parked his bike on the city streets. Happy Thanksgiving all the same my dude
>>24872419You dont lay his bike or he will come beat you up fuck you over and sue you and win
>>24872419You don't need to lift the front and shift it one go, use the suspension to bounce the front and scoot it a littleIf that doesn't work get your cover/gear/dog under the triumph and carefully lay it down, bunch it up a little under any contact points to stop scrapeage
>>24872416hello wing! headed south this weekend.
>>24872423>>24872421Nvm I got it. One of the porters from the building helped me lift the triumphOnly damage is to my turn signal
Go get your freedom pass
>>24872430Sucks but at least its an easy fix
>>24872439The radiator cover is loose too. Not sure what else is damaged so I'm just gonna call insurance to have Yamaha take a look at it after Thanksgiving
>>24872441good luck anon hope nothing else is fuckerinod. Make sure you've got plenty of pictures in case insurance tries to pull some shit
Daily reminder that yamaha's new MT10 has built in speakers for projecting "engine" soundshttps://www.autoblog.com/2021/11/24/yamaha-mt-10-sp-superbike-reveal/
>>24872519reality is the cruelest joke.
>>24871970do you fold in your mirrors as a preventative measure because you know you're going to crash?
>>24872519I thought it wasn't speakers but more like some kind of noise tube, just points the engine sound at you cos yuuro roles killed exhaust
>>24872519>speakersnigger learn to read, they are air channels there's nothing artificial about the sound that you hear there
>>24872554If you can find any more evidence of that I'd love to see it.Autoblog is the only source I've seen directly suggesting that they are "speakers."But yamaha calling it an "acoustic amplifier grille" system sure makes it sound like speakers. I don't really see how pointing the intakes through tubes facing the rider could be considered an "acoustic amplifier grille system".Yamaha has done the tube thing in the past and didn't give it a special name iirc
here is another article suggesting there are speakers on boardhttps://www.roadracingworld.com/news/yamaha-usa-confirms-updated-2022-mt-10-and-new-mt-10-sp/
Its officially over, today was the last day riding my Tuono. RIP Italian Stallion
I'm so sick of all the bullshit related to working on my car. Talk me into becoming a bike fag. Should I just buy a new Honda bike?
>>24872589what happened?Bike heaven?Is it living on a farm upstate now?Did you have to sell it?Or are you just pussing out because you're cold
>>24872588This doesn't suggest there's speakers it's just a fancy name for "holes you can hear the sound from" as opposed to covering up the airbox completely and not hearing the intake sound. Also >innovative uneven firing intervalI know Yammie's the hot kid on the block with 270 cranks right now but there's nothing new about the concept.
>>24872593I don't know why you'd settle on Honda before even becoming a bikefag.So far all my bikes have been hondas and so far all my bikes have been slow AFVT750VT1100NC700x
>>24872595The Oil Pressure alarm doesnt go off unless its above 7k RPM. Before it would only stay on at idle.Plus it sounds extremly buzzy and theres a whistle sound to it(do have vid if anyone wants to hear it )Im just gonna leave it to rot in the garage, who knows i might buy a new engine for it next year
>>24872593I'd rather you just seethe and take the bus
>>24872605ah yes, Italian craftsmanship. Everyone tells you it's just bullshit propaganda by butthurt people who wish they had an italian bike but it comes for everyone sooner or later.
>>24872600Honda's are the only bikes that I know the models of. Thats about it. Suzuki's sound cool. I have no idea about bikes bruh
Anyone have opinions on the BMW GS 1200 and the F800 GS?Im torn on which one to get
>>24872593Have you ridden anything before? No? A used DR650 would honestly make more sense then.>cheap>it just works>single cylinder that's very accessible to mad easy to wrench on>if you even have to>does city very easyThis is all assuming you're not a manlet. You could buy something EFI and more complex, like a CB500F, but I personally do enjoy the ability to wrench on my own bike, and nothing's easier to work on than a carb'd single cylinder exposed to the open air.
>>24872611>1200Great at sitting in traffic and going to starbucks>800Not utterly useless offroad but still a dumb and heavy posTenere 700 better than both
>>24872612I'm 6'3" 175lbs. Honestly I want something thats no bullshit and can get up to at least 60mph. I've only ever riden a motorized bike once.
>>24872621My intentions are to start doing some touring/backpacking using moto as means of transportation so most of my mileage will be highway, but I do want the ability to make it to a relatively remote campsite when I need to. I'm leaning towards the 1200 and figuring if I actually want to do real off-road stuff I should just buy a dirt bike in addition to a 1200?
>>24872611They're both great bikes though obviously more expensive than the competition. Very smooth and easy to ride and very capable too. The 1200 is the go to if you'll be riding on the road and/or touring, if you ride one you'll very soon realise why everyone likes them.F800 is the option if you're actually planning to ride dirt and go on actual adventure touring. The 1200 can do dirt too if you're experienced and know what you're doing but if you really know what you're doing you'll just go for the F800 which is far more capable and fun off road. Also don't get the F800 if you're a manlet
>>24872626A DR650 would fit you like a glove then. The bike is great for people your height and weight, the power isn't excessive for a beginner, and it'll do highway speeds with no issues.It is what I would recommend. Look for like a 2005-2018 bike near you and just buy it if it's got no outstanding issues or a trillion miles.>>24872636>figuring if I actually want to do real off-road stuff I should just buy a dirt bike in addition to a 1200?This is your brain on adventure bikes.If you're just going to use the 1200 for touring then why at all would you spend that kind of money on an ADV bike and not something actually comfortable and comes with storage like, say, a Goldwing, or a Road King special?Regardless I still maintain that the Tenere 700 is a more sensible buy. Spending that much on a 1200 you're likely to dump off-road because it weighs 6 trillion pounds or an 800 that'd function the same on the highway because it's so pigfat seems nonsensical when Yamaha makes a lighter bike for less.
Final shots of my Tuono

Sharing the poem about my Tuono again:A light from our streets is gone.An exhaust we loved is stilled.A place is vacant in my garage,which can never be filled.
>>24872551no they usually dont touch the ground when it goes down. but they fold in at around 130kmh due to the wind. and i dont see anything besides my massive biceps in the mirrors anyways.>>24872575im another kind of an ugly retard, but luckily not this ugly and retarded>>24872589rip>>24872605why dont you wrench tho?
>>24872659>This is your brain on adventure bikes.Yeah ngl I'm feeling pretty infatuated with the GS aesthetic so I'm obviously going to wait at least a month before I decide to purchase anything>why at all would you spend that kind of money on an ADV bike and not something actually comfortable and comes with storage like, say, a Goldwing, or a Road King special?I've legitimately thought about this but as mentioned in my original post I do want the bike to at least be capable of getting me up a trail to a campsite for certain destinations instead of having to leave my bike at the trailhead 100% of the time. Also what the hell is the deal with the 1200's pretty much universally positive reputation when there is a common consensus that it's basically useless off-road??
>tfw $500 deductibleI hope the dealer charges for 5 hours of labor just so Geico has to pay for something
>>24872706You sound like you have no experience riding off road.It doesn't matter what bike you have, it's about your skill. A street bike with a capable off roader riding it can do dirt, if unwillingly, and a dirtbike with a dirtnoob on top of it won't magically make you better at going on dirt, it will be hard and tiring. The GS can do dirt at a decent level but it's a huge heavy bike, so the rider has to be experienced in order to handle it.
>>24872705i dont think its fixable, I rode it with bad oil pressure too long in 100+ weather, the mechanic said theres advanced wear on the engine
Lonely is my garage without you.Life to me is not the same.My world would be like heaven, if I could have you back again.
YOU TOLD /DBT/ THAT YOU REALLY RIDE, BITCH TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR BIKES THEY REALLY SCOOTERS!
>>24872719Guilty as charged. My father grew up riding dirt but decided to shield me from motorcycles because he had a nearly life-ending crash on a street bike when he was 30. Ever since then he dropped moto and became a fucking cyclist. I got into motorcycles naturally give or take 5 years ago and have just recently started riding track but never had any friends that do dirt so I never jumped in a bought one to learn. Now for the past year or so I've gotten real big into camping and backpacking and want to start taking my adventures out of state and I'm not even sure why but just naturally gravitated to the BMW GS's. I think even way back when I started riding I would see these things on the street and think to myself, damn that's a cool bike. And since the camping thing crosses over a bit into off-road moto, I figured an adventure bike is the way to go. Definitely won't be buying anything new, but I've been seeing 1200 GS's go for anywhere from 4500-7000 which is just about in my price bracket.
Lmao hey jannie.im thankful I'm not you working for free on Thanksgiving. You faggot kike nigger. I like motorcycle eat shit fagggggfg.
>>24872611They're honestly way too expensive for what they are. BMW needs to get fucked on that pricing, it's pretty outrageous.
Supposed to snow all weekend, pretty bummed
Whatever happened to all the Himalayan riders?
>>24872761Im jelly, I'm in Cali and the entire fucking winter is expected to be dry.
>>24872761ill make it snow for u :*
>>24872722that's easy-ish enough to deal with, you'll need to have new oversized piston heads made and you'll need the cylinders bored out by a machinist's shop to unfuck the cylinder walls. however IIRC you'll also need to address the oil system problem by either replacing the sensor like the anon last thread or the thread before suggested or rebuilding the pump. however I'd just part it out and buy an SV650 or another jap middleweight nakkid or a RE like that memelord suggested.

need help brosim planning to sell my sv and get something and getting a big sportbike next october once i get my big license, but i thought about trying out an adv bike before thatwhat are the best cheap (around €2k) advs with good power/weight ratios? the older lc4 adv seems really interesting>>24872722ah shitwell thats why i prefer simpler bikes and cars. what bike will you get instead?
>>24872782I know that feel. I got my bike stolen in march just before dropping my shitpile of a car to the mechanic for six weeks.
>>24872746Thought so. Focus on starting out with whatever bike you have and worry later about spending that kind of money on the hobby. Also try to get started on dirt in a cheaper way. You need to properly asses what it actually entails and what you actually need. I suck at dirt but I've had a taste of it so I can tell you that everything you know about riding does not work on dirt. Neither of your tires have grip and track straight as they do on the road/track, and even if some riding styles or circumstances make the rear lose traction, on the street/track losing the front is never desirable whereas on dirt it's inevitable so you can't rely on a steady front tire. It's tiring and difficult and there's a lot of new shit you have to learn. No bike you can buy will magically make you better on dirt, some are just easier than others to use on dirt.
>>24872782use your bike for going to work?
>>24872800This hands down, also its got 47 HP so you could be riding it right now. The later GS is also good. There's literally nothing better than this at that price point and the LC4s were so notoriously unreliable that they're singlehandedly responsible for KTM's current reputation. Light and nimble, easy to throw around off road but it's also surprisingly good on road. It's basically the Yammie XT660R but more than a decade earlier. Speaking of which the XT600 or XTR are also good options though obviously they're not exactly adv.
>>24872818that's the thing, I don't have one yet. I was waiting for mid-december or early january because when I made my plans I didn't think I needed it.
>>24872748U weird lol
>>24872771>or rebuilding the pumpThey already replaced the oil pump entirely, and it still has the oil pressure problem, they even tested to see if it was the sensor and it wasnt
>>24872846Why not just buy one now though
THIS is what I'm talking about. It's time to go be a motorcycle.
>>24872859I honestly don't know what the upcoming repairs are going to cost. if it's something not terrible or expensive like timing belt and tensioner as soon as I have it back I'm taking my happy ass and finding a bike in the following 7 to 10 days. if it's transmission and other shit there's going to be some delays in getting a bike. that's a big if though
Is that type of key any good?
>>24872867What type of motorcycle are you
>>24872863>2 counts of 1st degree murderThere go his riding days, never should have punched that mirror.
>>24872898in a stand your ground state? not likely
>>24871867Missing the time I laid her down so softly I broke my foot peg clean off
>>24872867you fucking nigger im so jealousstill gonna call in sick and ride tomorrow though>>24872832ok thanks anon. will consider it. didnt know the older lc4s were that bad thodo you think it would be worth selling my sv for one, considering that i have a sumo?
>>24872920The LC4s are notorious for cracking the cylinder head, and I know personally 3-4 people who've had that happen. I got my F650 for 1400 euros and had 3,5 years of fun on it. I miss it.
>>24872903That's not what stand your ground is you imbecile. Stand your ground means you have no duty to retreat from a threat, it doesn't mean you can actively pursue someone you started an altercation with with clear intent to do harm as evidenced by the fact that he waited for her outside after following her home.
>>24871901Gaiters trap moisture so other than off-road where constant rock bombardment happens it's pretty much even. I've seen plenty of corrosion beneath gaiters so if you run them don't neglect to spray CRC or Boeshield beneath if it really matters. Seals harden over time too. They're generally cheap and easy to replace.>>24872036That's zinc-coated galvanized steel. At least know the proper terms for things as not using them is a very bad habit to get into. Zinc sheet that thin would shatter when cut.
>>24872800>what bike will you get instead?Probably a 600, either a zx6r or an R6 if I can get one for a good price.I am also looking at the Street Triple RS
>>24872920>>24872867I couldn't imagine living somewhere that sucks both legally AND geographically.>>24872908That was just controlled footpeg removal so you could replace it with superior aftermarket.
>>24872952zimzam proved you wrong, schlomocope and sneed
>>24872908It failed as designed so as not to break the more expensive mounting plate.RIP good peg. (Do not replace with steel.)
Thinking of putting a tall handlebar on my suzuki so I'll sit more comfy and like a chopper grandpa >>24872954People just say zinc around here
>>24872971Zimmerman never pursued anyone, and stand your ground was never brought up in his case. The prosecution themselves admitted that Martin got caught peering into a dark house, ran home, then went back out to "teach that faggot a lesson." Their entire argument was that he should have allowed Martin to injure or kill him without resisting, and that ridiculous argument was the reason he was acquitted.
>MV Agusta releases 550c adventure bike>Weighs 485lb dry, probably 530lb wet.why the fuck do these manufacturers keep making these so heavy? it doesnt make sense. who wants this shit?
>>24872568an amplifier isn't a speaker anon, although speakers need amplifiers.
>>24872849You're a ugly fag, tranny chaser, and child molester
>>24872898He wasn't charged at all dumbass. He and a witness followed her after the hit and run and were outside her house calling the cops when she walked outside with a firearm and pointed it at her.
>>24873001Are you really not allowed to follow somebody to get insurance in America?
>>24873056You can, and you can cap them and their faggot child when they come out with a gun
>>24873054This. Also I'm not gonna bother copy and pasting this text.He's more than likely going to get off on self-defense, as he should.
>>24873054>He wasn't charged at all dumbassNot yet.And the real funny part is that this whole situation will teach people to just kill a biker the instant they act up instead of attempting to engage and allowing them the chance to continue the altercation.
>>24873073Or just don't hit and run then point your gun at people.
>>24873073>implying anyone but motorcyclists are going to follow thisDude I guarantee you that by next week not a single normie soul will have it on their minds unless they post in THIS general. Also >>24873078 this
>>24872965>I couldn't imagine living somewhere that sucks both legally AND geographicallyhelp
>>24873064Within US law, it was perfectly legal and justified. Silly woman never should have left her house. Unfortunately Im going to have to apply some euroseethe here: if she didnt have a gun, she would still be alive. She was clearly wreckless and a hazard to other motorists, and had some kind of mental issues. This doesnt mean she deserved to die though, it could have all been caused by her pregnancy hormones for all we know. Now because she had a firearm, biker man had no choice but to kill her to protect his own life. Her husband is out a missus and a baby because his dumb wife was legally allowed to own and operate a firearm, when she clearly shouldn’t have been. If I lived in the states I’d carry a handgun, but I sure as shit wouldn’t ever want to have to use it, and this is probably one of the saddest, stupidest examples I’ve seen.
>>24873101>sad over itI'm not. Darwin marches on and that's just the way thing's are and ideally should be. The second you start getting too benevolent for your own good is how you let people like Tarrant convince your government that yeah you know what, you've all had freedom for too long. We should just make you slaves real quick.Ultimately the person who died was some utterly insane foid who though hitting a motorcycle on purpose then running away then walking outside with a gun were all good ideas. This is the kind of person society doesn't really struggle without having around, very similar to how all the young upstanding future engineers and doctors in Chicago go into that dark night with no tears shed.Guns should be as easy to buy as alcohol from the liquor store. Also being black should be illegal. I have solved society.>>24873100lol just move :^)
>>24873101It's almost like if you don't act like a nigger you live, not if you have a gun or not

>>24873116dude you've got the Enclave flag.
>>24873128Then don't buy it fag. How simple is that for a solution?
>>24873165Dumb idiot retard poster.
>>24872863I've followed people home (well they actually saw I was committed to following and they threw in the towel and pulled over) but I was in a car so I dialed 911 immediately to avoid this whole>you were following them to shoot themBullshit accusation if things went badly. Don't honestly know what I'd do riding.
>>24873176shit I forgot about the E, close enough then.
>>24873167im not going to you dumb tranny. those hormones are clouding your brain
>>24873185Then why are you so upset by it? Who hurt you?
>>24873184You're not allowed in my fallout house.Also >>24873189 & >>24873185 are retarded faggots, but the new MV is a heavy piece of stupid shit.
I am thankful for the miles upon miles of open road, thousands of square miles of National Parks, coast-to-coast hospitality, and a culture that celebrates individual freedom. I am thankful to the mobs of squids, the gangs of baggers, the swarms of scooters, and the antisocial lone riders all out on the blacktop everyday. I am thankful for /dbt/ and all the ridiculous memes of this place.
>>24873192if you're going to rebuild America, atleast use non rusted metal.Fallout NV a best btw.
>>24873035use your brain for 5 whole seconds anon, why would bikes be getting heavier?Could it have anything to do with the massive exhausts and cats that bikes need to pass noise and emission regs?
>>24873233>if you're going to rebuild America, at least use non rusted metalThere is no supporting enclave presence in the Commonwealth and my character is one lone man with shit to do that isn't spend literal years pouring concrete and fabricating a proper bunker out in the middle of nowhere. If the Enclave shows up and firebombs him well then that's just what his little deluded self won by flying their colors based on nothing but passing rumors and propaganda.I treat all this too seriously.>>24873243>your cat and pipes are all of what's bloating your bikeWhat a retarded take this one is. The actual answer is MV as well as most other manufacturers knowing you're never going to take that shit on anything more taxing than a dirt road and so they can laden it with plastic and big comfy road seats
thankful for chobbas
>>24873243Yet other bikes are getting lighter
>>24873248if you side with the Institute, you would get access to a stock of pure humans and free labour in the form of synths; and to boot the Institute has similar ideals to the Enclave, only with no ideations of recolonizing the surface.You DID side with the Institute, right anon..?
>>24873248>What a retarded take this one is. The actual answer is MV as well as most other manufacturers knowing you're never going to take that shit on anything more taxing than a dirt road and so they can laden it with plastic and big comfy road seatsWhat is an XRV 750's dry weight?Now take that number you got from google and compare it to the MV's dry weight, then use your noggin.>>24873266Such as?A ducati 999 wet weight is the same as new ducati v2 panigale.Despite the advancements made over the years in metalurgy(Lighter stronger alloys), it's all for nothing if the bikes keep having to include mahoosive cats and exhausts to keep the anal rodeo that is EU rule book happy.
>>24872593>>24872626Don't listen to the fucking DR propagandist below, they don't even ride and they pride themselves on how many DR650's they can "sell" via 4chan. They're not bad bikes in a general sense but you're going to hate it if you need to ride in a city at all in warm weather. No I won't explain further.>>24872612>>24872659
>>24873268If Fallout 4 wasn't written by toddlers, I would agree with you. Unfortunately not s single person at bethesda responsible for story direction or character creation is good at their job, and thus the Institute is made up of some of the most utterly incompetent people I could possibly imagine.Assuming the game didn't suck and actually gave you the ability to restructure 90% of what the institute is doing then again yeah, anyone sensible would side with them, but as is they're just retards building sentient robots for absolutely no reason in a world where the actual useful things they're doing are easily reproducible so it's a uranium football spiked into their reactor from me.They're lucky there's no internet at that point in history otherwise that artificial intelligence would be much more dangerous than it already proves to be literally every five seconds they keep fucking making the things.>>24873285A: Africa twin is an old bike with much older materials science and a significantly greater displacement thus pointing to it as a "bikes have always been this heavy," is retardedB: the Tenere 700 is significantly lighter because it wasn't designed by retardsC: You're fucking retarded.>>24873323They're both my posts and I have never before posted about DR650s.
>>24873285The AT 1k with a bigger engine, bunch of electronics, emissions controls, etc. weighs about the same as the XRV750 dry
>>24873363yeah the Institute is fucking retarded but you do have to keep in mind that you're made director after Shawn croaks so if you're willing to larp hard enough, you could just say that gen 3 synth production is halted. The Enclave would want you to preserve the pure humans left down there anyways.Fallout 4 is garbage anyways.
>>24873395it was pretty good with mods and far harbor is kino
>>24873400the general gameplay was good but the story was shit and the RPG elements were pretty much missing completely. It would have been better if it wasn't a Fallout game and just a generic post apocalyptic settlement game.
>>24873412yeah not wrong>dont need power armour training because the dude was in the military>dont need power armour training if you pick the wife either because... reasonsjust lazy.
>>24873395>Shawn dies and you're put forthNear their entire hierarchy (rightfully) objects to this and already is fractured regarding what should actually be worked on. Restructuring the Institute into something functional is in my eyes practically impossible, as all the high-up personalities are foolhardy and unwilling to compromise in the slightest.The Enclave at this point is also almost entirely dead. Chicago may be the next Bethel but they're simply going to bleed resources until whatever technology they have worth keeping operational can't be, and the members just mass kill themselves/exodus into being normal wastelanders once high command fails to keep order and people fed.>>24873400>>24873412This, especially far harbor. Spent a lot of time there just because the map designers and music teams dis such a good job.Writers as always were a bunch of braindead retards but I stopped paying attention to that like 100 hours into the run.>>24873426Just wait for the first Microsoft-owned fallout to drop...Anyways motorcycles.

Way to ridehttps://youtu.be/ZHOiYLSR1Do
>>24873718What do you mean Its somehow my fault?
Who /thanksgiving/ ride? Loving this heated gear. Real cold out tonight and I’m feeling nice and toasty. Only another hour until home
>>24873728what do you have? vest?
>>24873734“Hot wired” jacket liner, wired into the battery under my leather jacket. Best $225 worth of motorcycle gear I’ve bought. Wish I had taken the heated gear pill years ago.
>>24873741nice. i got a vest and grips.riding in the rain is actually comfy now. sound of rain on the helmet reminds me of camping and i just ride around listening to talk radio nice and toasty.
Also, finally going to have the Lowrider with me at my new place in Carolina. No more sneaking around on the 48 or 900RR with no plate.
>>24873748Damn that does sound cozy. The jacket liner I’ve got has DC plugs at the end of the sleeves for the gloves, but we all know how gross winter gloves can get after a winter season. I think I’m just going to go with the heated grips + jacket liner, and maybe the pants liner too. That seems to be the weak point right now, even with long Johns, and windbreaker pants under my Kevlar jean.
Which of you did this
>>24873749I have a chopper too but it's yellow
>>24873757if you get grips and gloves make sure to get ones that aren't insulated on the palm so the heat from the grips transfers through easily.
>>24873766It’s a muscle cruiser but chobbers are cool, post it
>>24873772I’m just going to keep my winter gloves and skip the heated ones for now, they work well as they are now, besides the fact that they stink. Good winter gloves don’t breath well at all. Those + heated grips should sufficient even in the low 20’s, which is as cold as it gets. The lowrider is my only vehicle this winter, lol.
>>24873779Ohh I see
>>24872698That's not even it retard. Electronic throttle has a delay and most are not paying attention to begin with. >>24872233I have accidents because some retarded woman hit me, fled home, and then got shot by me. You have accidents because you can't lean. We are not the same.
>>24873791That’s not a chobber, that’s a favela shitbikeStill cool though, I dig it and would definitely make space for it in my collection
Almost home. Hope my burgerbros had a nice thanksgiving.
>>24873888Honestly I was so thankful this year that I wasnt born as some R6 riding child molester. Just a bad roll of the dice and I could have born that ugly faggot. Literally made me a Christian because it's proof God exists and is merciful.
>>24873915Please don't comment or respond to my posts, sodomite. My God have mercy on your faggot soul.
>>24873921Sorry I thought you wanted a fresh r6 pic

whats the actual value of a clapped out grom? im thinking of getting one, but used they go for 4k.
>>24874036>whats the actual value of a clapped out grom?The answer to your extremely vague and stupid question is money. The value of it is money.
>>24874036I don't understand the appeal of a Grom. What do you want one for?
>>24873484I just consoomed the Decathlon guys
>>24874043>I don't understand the appeal of a Grom. What do you want one for?I'm trans if that matters.

im gonna buy an older busa to commute about a 100 miles, mostly straight line highways, and darkside it. Thoughts?
>>24874098I have never met an adult white person that owned a Hayabusa. It's either blacks or some retarded child.
>>24874106only busas ive seen out in the wild are old people doing speed limit. have yet to see any clapped out ones
>>24874098Sounds like you just need to move closer
>>24874113but then id have no excuse to own a busa
>>24874118I mean, you could still own a Busa
>>24874119would be like owning a jeep that doesnt go off roading. litres hate low speeds and being stopped
>>24874111I've honestly never seen one that wasn't clapped out.
>>24874124I think if you're commuting every day to the same place, 100miles there and back you will not enjoy it.
>>24874128it currently takes me an hour on my bike. its a giant straight line 80% of the ride so there's times I really wish I had cruise control and power to overtake cars doing 100mph with ease.
>>24874144>cars doing 100mphWell if your traffic is often going 40mph over the limit then I'd say go ahead.
>>24874156>60mph speed limitlmao there is a 100 mile stretch from my city to the next that is 75 except for the quarter that is 80.
>>24874167Consider me jealous
>>24874170lol good bakuon mem!
>>24874167was thinking the other day how the hell the germans in their autobahn do it so safely
>>24874170Is the swingarm bent?
>>24874185No? It looks fine to me
>>24872089The word is "cogent"
>>24874178>was thinking the other day how the hell the germans in their autobahn do it so safelyVery easy to answer. Driver education. They use the right lane for traveling and get in the left lane to pass then back over. When this is rigidly drilled into people and they act responsibly then you get to have fun shit like do 120mph across the country. Most people here in America think the left lane is the fast lane or they feel safe in it. They think the middle lanes are for driving casually, and the far right lane is for merging. This is why every interstate is a maddening cluster fuck of people driving at different rates of speed getting bunched up and infuriated.
>>24874189Maybe the bike is in fish-lens mode but the backdrop is not.
>>24874214Where do you see a bent swingarm? It looks straight to me.
>>24874222The rear wheel looks like it's pushed away from the viewer, relative to the rear cowling. Sprockets look fucky too.
>>24874228I think it's fine>>>/wsg/4209327
>>24873915cant believe i ride this thing GOD DAMN
If I make a hole or two inside that original hole (like the red markings), will that make my bike sound cooler but not much louder? As opposed to drilling on that flat surface which makes it very loud
>>24874289>will that make my bike sound cooler but not much louder?itll probably sound louder but not cooler
>>24874296From what I saw on youtube drilling makes it sound a lot heavier and sometimes crackly too
>>24874306idk, usually modded stock pipes sound like shit. What biyak?inb4 gn125 :3
>>24874211this, statistically riding on Autobahn is safer than riding on any other type of street in germany
