I never thought I would hear someone say “Chopper” and “Minimal” in the same sentence.
Don’t shift up so early. You probably can’t go 100 mph in first gear.November 2, 2008 at 10:22 pm in reply to: favourite bikes (OMG someone lock away my credit cards !!!!) #14520
the Triumph Daytona 675 will be my next bike.
It has an amazing engine, excellent handling and lightweight, and not to mention downright gorgeous ( I dare say its the prettiest production sportsbike in the last 5 years).
While it has a lot of low end torque and mid range (which makes it an ideal around town street bike); the Down side is the ergonomics, the riding position is rather extreme. I think I will try to keep my current Ninja 650r which is an excellent sport tourer and get the daytona as well.September 24, 2008 at 5:22 pm in reply to: MSF School: Waste of time, waste of money, both, or none of the above……Flamers flame on. #12664
well, at least you apologized to Rab. That no longer makes you a non-nice person.
I now take back the second mention of “tool” and all subsequent attacks.September 24, 2008 at 3:32 pm in reply to: MSF School: Waste of time, waste of money, both, or none of the above……Flamers flame on. #12647
oh yeah… clearly I’m the sensitive one.
Maybe you should read; I just said I took back your exchange with spaz, and realized what it was (sarcasm). That still leaves no room for you to be calling people assholes on a forum and not expect anything back from it; only tools do that… and the reason I called you a tool.
stop acting obnoxious and take your head out your ass. Or don’t, I don’t care– My intention was not to stop your from doing anything (so called fuel to flame). If you wish to act like a monkey on a forum, be my guest
All you’re doing is proving my original point.September 24, 2008 at 7:34 am in reply to: MSF School: Waste of time, waste of money, both, or none of the above……Flamers flame on. #12634
I apologize for calling you a tool the first time. I thought you were being flippant and rude (and overall a non-nice person) to Megaspaz; but reading over it again, I suppose it wasn’t too bad.
I stand by my words of calling you a tool the second time for the simple reason that you’ve been rude, arrogant, and a smart ass and with no real good reason other than you probably have sand in your vagina.
you need to give respect before you can expect to receive it.
honestly, I don’t think the <600cc rule of thumb should work the same way with Cruisers. Cruiser engines are different than sport bikes, and they are generally heavier and not designed for speed. And while others on here may disagree with me, I Don't think its a terrible choice to pick up a 750 cruiser (although I would not advise someone impulsively buying one). Personally, If I were to get a cruiser for a first bike, I wouldn't get anything under 500. Reason being, 250 cruisers would have a lot more trouble of the freeways than a Ninja 250.
With that said, I would advise you not to spend too much on your first bike;
also, Cruisers are heavy, and a lighter more nimbler bike will reduce the chances of you dropping it or getting into a low speed crash because you’re not used to the weight. So in that regard, lighter IS better.
Just make sure you make the right decision for yourself.
I actually prefer the look of the SV650 much much more.
BUT with that said, the Ninja 650 and the ER-6n are much more forgiving beginner bikes– where as the SV650 has a bit more power and overall does require a bit more skill.September 23, 2008 at 7:10 am in reply to: MSF School: Waste of time, waste of money, both, or none of the above……Flamers flame on. #12542
wow you’re such a tool.September 22, 2008 at 5:14 pm in reply to: MSF School: Waste of time, waste of money, both, or none of the above……Flamers flame on. #12496
the class is not made for tools.September 19, 2008 at 3:51 am in reply to: Should u learn to drive in a car and then get a motorcycle? #12365
the most important thing about learning on a car first, is to really learn how people behave of the road, and how to respond to the dynamics of traffic. Its very easy for new car drivers to get into accidents, not because they drive beyond their skill, but because they don’t understand how to maneuver in traffic. The same would apply to new motorcycle drivers (where the motorcycle is the first vehicle), except there is a much lower margin of error.
A Manual Car is preferable (just to get used to shifting), but is not a requirement.September 14, 2008 at 2:32 pm in reply to: Is a 650cc right for me after riding a 650 in the past? #12138
Another bike I would recommend is the Ninja 650. Its probably a tad more forgiving a “beginner bike” than the SV650; but it also has fairing which are a GODSEND on the highway or for long rides.
You CAN get the sv650s or sv650sf — which are variants of the sv650 with fairing; However, the riding position on those is very Super sport ish, and no where near as comfortable as the Ninja 650.
I actually don’t think the buell looks ugly at all
maybe a little awkward at some angles, but not a horrible looking bike by any means.
maybe I’m just crazy
lol, what’s with the Supersport hate? Just cause they arn’t good beginner bikes doesn’t mean we can’t admire a good piece of technology and engineering.
although, I would stress that the R1 is DEFINITELY a bad beginner bike.
a 200 or 250cc engine should be more than enough for that task.
