Half a Car: The Motorbike Thread

:dat: Also evaluate your needs. I never even installed the OEM bags on my Multistrada - they literally sat on a shelf in my garage for 2 years of ownershit. I thought I needed them but in reality I wasn't going anywhere that needed more than a backpack or a pillon bag. :bruh: do you even ADV? :sass:

Half a Car: The Motorbike Thread

That’s what the physical therapist said. And it’s what I’ve been working on. Although if I get this. I won’t get the street glide. Can’t afford two bikes at once. So I need to evaluate how badly I want bags. Lots of sport touring bikes have upright seating AND factory bags available. Yamaha FJ-09 b...

Richie is harrasing me that's it's a gay bike. I'd still love to find a 2007-09 SV 650 naked. Just nothing at a reasonable price locally. That market has dried up. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180425/2701a32889fa935b2f824058ab0f4fc6.jpg Gay bike? Pfft. Whatever. Give less fucks. Doesn't Ted g...

There's also sports car races and track days with heavier cars at COTA, even in the heat of summer. Even though they went 8ft (I think?) deep, the ground underneath it is known to shift around. The shimmy between 18 and 19 was the most noticeable on the Yamahas and Suzukis, the Ducs, KTMs, Aprillas...

Boss man sounds like an idiot
Somehow bossman was able to visit a client and encourage them to buy less instead of more. :impressive:

Just curious. It has faults. It's slow. But it's a great slow car to drive fast. It was really just me being ignorant and wanting to spur a conversation.

Huh
Don't knock it until you try it. The tonic takes a bit of the bold smoke taste out of the whisky. Not a lot, but some.
I do the same with bourbon from time to time. A splash of carbonated mineral water opens things up a bit and mellows some of the dominate flavors.

This.

Makes great noises, speaks through the controls, and doesn’t ever exceed 40 MPH but makes you feel like you’re doing 100.
