Took out 20k for a bike, any suggestions. I'm considering the the R9 scrambler Post 'em
SC3 Carducci is more of a fuck it money bike for me. The R9 is lit too. I am getting a t7 yamaha this spring.
Very nice sir. I drive bmw aswell, but i am more a chopper guy. Considering this bike. But if btc really moons, r18 classic would be nice. God speed
>>28875288At that price you can afford most production bikes. What kind of riding do you do? What do you like in your bikes?
Yeah, I'm a sucker for crotch rockets but I want one of every style. I just fucking love bikes.
>>28875783I'm a casual commuter with beater ducati scramber moto (first bike, bought off a friend). I'd like to get something with a little bit for of a kick that I can still throw around >>28875541Looks good, I've never rode a chopper any reccs to test out? That Carducci look beautiful
>>28875288>>28875521>>28875541>>28875879Motorcycles have 27x the death rate as cars per mile driven. Male drivers have 2-3x the death rate of female drivers (for the age range most of you are in, that's even higher).Anyone who buys one of these deathtraps is retarded and/or suicidal.
>>28876188Yeah, bikes are cool as fuck and fun, but I dont trust other mongoloid drivers here in the US.Ill just stick with fast cars and a dirtbike to goof around with on my property.
>>28875879best fastbroI'm curious to see the new hayabusa
>>28876188I'm 38 y-o and been riding for 20 years and am still hereObviously if you're a bad driver/rider, you shouldnt get one

>>28876166You plan on doing track days? Off road riding? Touring? Around the town hooning?
Probably some dirty old Indian or a KTM supermotoIt ain’t much but it’s honest
>>28875288crf250 will do
>>28876188Based safety bro>inb4 I’m a good riderEveryone I know that was hurt on a bike (a lot of people) was hit by some retard or had to dump their bike to avoid being hit.
>ever using cucked roads after you've made it.

>>28877422>Everyone I know that was hurt on a bike (a lot of people) was hit by some retard or had to dump their bike to avoid being hitno me, everyone I knew were simply riding too fast
/biz/ biker?! *swoon* I want to ride you anon. I've got an sv650 im trying to sell and a ninja 650r rn. Pic rel is my make it bike
>>28875288Do you guys actually feel safe riding bikes? I think they're cool and look fun but there is no way I'm trusting my life to a bunch of other retards and some dotted lines painted on asphalt. I might get one to rip at a track or a few dirtbikes or something but I'm not sure I could ever use one as actual transpo.
>>28878293Git gud at riding
>>28878156 You will never be a woman
>>28878715Anyone who uses this is too afraid to use "Tits or GTFO" because they know they'd be attracted to moobs.GayyyyyyyyyyyyKLR for me. Driving onnaroad is just begging to get plastered by some cunt in a minivan. Driving innawoods is safer; plus I'll be living there anyway.
>>28878501sounds like a good plan but you're still at the mercy of the hundreds of other hungover, tired, new, inexperienced retards hurtling down the road at the wheel of a 2 ton bullet
If I ever make it, I would love to get one of pic relatedOr some kind of enduro
>>28879409Can't live life in fear. Otherwise go live in a padded cell.
I'm third-worlder poorfag and am investing to buy this piece of shit when it's MSRP is 1/3 of my portfolio. I just wanna go moderately fast.

>>28879856yes ive been daydreaming about taking a cross country trip with this bike
I'll just buy a new wr450, and trick it out like this. until then, i've already got a road legal wr450 and luv it:)

>>28880503tits or gtfocan't believe you're derailing a bike thread like this. unbelievable.
>>28876188Do you always live in fear, it is today special?
>>28875288based taste in this thread
>>28875288based thread OP. The R9 is a lot of fun. Rides similar to the fz07 and fz09Look into getting an adventure/touring bike. I never thought I would be interested in long rides but got a Ducati Multistrada about 5 years ago and put 40K miles on it in 2 years. I am looking for a BMW 1250 now and planning a trip to Alaska for the summer with some friends. Being able to go from asphalte to dirt without having to worry is a blast. It's the best way to see an area. Other than a plane.
>>28882116Honda silver wing is also nice fellow scooterbro

>>28875288I would love a bike, but I know my ADD would get me killed on one of these.
>>28875288damn that thing is sexy AF
>>28881577Why would you buy a wr450 when you can buy one of these?
>>28875288In 2020 it's the only reasonable answer.
ITT: /biz/ has god-tier taste in bikes
>>28880503The top is in boys
I really love the scrambler look and feel; love my ducati scrambler. I commute and ride hillside/mountain/back-country roads for fun, not really pushing it. I don't do group rides. I'm just looking for an upgrade to my scrambler, in a similar style but with a bit more power. I've never done any real off-road riding besides fire trails.Love the BMW look, it seems to fit what I'm looking for and I'm planning on doing a test ride soon.
No new bikes. Gonna build a garage and curate my Magna. Convert the cb500f into a real scrambler.
>>28880503Even with maskthis creature doesnt pass

My grandad's old wreck of a Vincent Black Shadow (frame's salvageable, but that's it) is currently being restored with a new 1200 unit from the lads at JMC, to emerge glorious with the Lightning treatment. Unbelievably grateful to you autists for helping get this cash together - I'm from a council estate and chose to spend my career rolling in mud wearing lots of green, so there's no way I'd have been able to 'make it' this well otherwise. Cheers, lads! You'll get photos when it's done!
>>28875288I unironically lost my desire to ride once my folio hit half a million and the desire to kms went away. might track ride tho.the pandemic shutdown was rider's heaven, then all these phone staring chuckle fucks ruined it againt. Daytona 675 and SV650 owner
not a make it bike but I might buy it this or next year

>>28876188I ride and this goes through my head every time I ride.
>>28877568this. If you have time to LAYERDOWNyou have time to fucking stop or swerve. more likely they got too hot on the rear brake and panicked.
>>28882010Np, can i try again? Rate pls
>>28875288I have the R9T Cafe Racer. She is my love. Wonderful bike.
>>28875288Triumph Tiger 900 here. It’s a beast of a bike.
>>28884447Yep this. I'm a newer rider, I have gone down once and almost crashed twice. Each time it was due to user error and me either A. Being a hothead (going to fast into a turn) or B. Not being fully aware of what I was doing / was distracted. I went into a low speed turn into my parking complex, but didn't give the bike enough power, I stalled mid turn and went down like a moron turning into my parking space. A SUV pulled up next to me, shook their head at me and drove off. My ego was bruised for the remainder of the week.
>>28876188or youre just a pussy and a retard. 2/3 of those deaths are no helmet or drunk rider. so go ahead and tell us what you know
>>28881491This. It seems like /biz/ wants to make it so they can show off nice things to normies. I want to make it so I can /out/ all the time. A BMW R is a great way to do it. I like the Honda Africa but it reminds me to much of niggers. Triumph Tigers are cool as well.
>>28884673MV agusta is italian, retard.not that a cruisermonkey like you would know the difference
I'd still keep my honda

>>28887965I see a dude commuting with one of these. A few years ago, I saw a car t-bone a guy on a segway. He walked away, very lucky considering he wasn't wearing protective gear.
>>28875288get the fucking 2021 mt09 sp edition its fucking cheap for what you get. ALL aftermarket upgrades and that engine is fucking solid, plus the insurance cost is cheap
I had many bikes, steets, 600, 1000cc superbikes, big adventures, a hayabusa etc.For me, for the type of riding I grew to like there's no replacement for a KTM 690 Enduro which I'll be getting this year hopefully, it's the most fun I've had on a bike that I can remember.
>>28875288Ducati Street fighter S
>>28876188go back to pleddit you stupid subhuman coward
>>28887037wop is the correct pejorativegj anon
I have had this bike for 10 years and it is still an absolute beast. I am keeping it but I would like to get another bike im thinking an enduro or adventure bike. I would also like to get like a honda grom or something for the beach. I always wanted an h2r and can now afford it but honestly my reckless squid days are coming to an end.
>>28875521>>28875288These are both nice. I like the Indian FTR 1200, mostly I just think it's sexy. Probably not the best bike for the money though.
>>28875288Bikes are generally gay. At least you bought it from a good brand.
>>28891589Ooh already posted here >>28883153 I'm not the only one
>>28888582Hell yeah. I have a husky 701 enduro, it's perfect bike. I can drive on roads, I can drive in the woods. It's fucking awesome.
>>28881195My nigga. My dream bike aswell
New Speed Triple looks awesome. Considering trading in my 1290 R for one. Triple engine is fantastic.
>>28881195Literal woman's/manlet bike.
>>28875288Husq 701 Enduroor the KTM 690 version?buy it brand new for 13k USD and have 5k + for extra shit
>>28880485Theyre so shit m8 just get a fuckin little ninja
>>28876188death is the least of your worries 3bh. being paralized or vegetative is easily worse
>>28893028Spoken like a true cuck
>>28893028Being paralyzed isn't so bad, neither is losing a limb. At least then you can hold onto the hope that medical advances will restore your functionality and allow you to live as a cyborg. Being rendered braindead or severely retarded is the nightmare fuel.
>>28877568KEK!The biggest insider joke.
>>28883796Ive always wondered if my love of going fast would disappear if my life wasnt shit
>>28878293Don't trust anyone. The trick is to treat everyone like a retard. Then when you get an actual retard you won't be caught out.t. 10 years riding crotch rockets and no accidents
>>28875541My dad had this the r1200c. Great bike amazing ride. It also saved his life on 9/11 because he didn’t take the path train under the wtc that day
>>28893376And stay out of the right lane
>>28893028first responder herewas going to buy a bikethen the night before had a call: mvc, motorbike meets tractor-trailerusually don't have authority to pronounce patients dead, but this time we were allowed tosince the only parts of the patient we found were a red paste on the pavement and a helment with their head in itdidn't buy the bike
Just saw a Harley and a Honda for sale at a truck stop for 6900 and 3300 respectively. Not sure your budget or location but in WI.
>>28887965Ok now I want one. I knew shit like this had to exist or was possible just didn't know what form it would take. I imagined powered rollerblades.
>>28893473>was going to buy bitcoin>was going to buy that stock>was going to talk to that girlhmmm
>>28893473Most fatal crashes involve a speeding rider, and a huge chunk of them involve an intoxicated rider.Sure you can't prevent some freak accident of an oncoming car moving into your lane, and there is always a risk of a distracted driver rear ending you at full speed when you're the only vehicle stopped at a light, but its not like safe riders are just dying left and right. By the numbers the people dying are people that were asking for it.Ride sane, wear crash armor, wear a full helmet, and watch your mirrors every time you're stopped and you'll be fine.
>>28893473Motorbikes seem to be extremely popular with ambulance officers where i live. I used to give riding lessons due to retarded learner laws in my cuntry and probably a good 1/5 were paramedics or firefighters
>>28876188you forget that people are fucking stupid and go out and get a 600cc or 1000cc or even more when they don't even know how to ride or respect the bike in the first place. the majority of those deaths are squids. noob idiot riders who don't wanna be called pussy for getting a 250 as their first bike and learning the proper way.
>>28893744Also make sure you attend an MSF course and totally memorize A Twist of the Wrist
Kawasaki H2R bruh. Gotta be that beast
I bought a bike, rode it a couple months, then some idiot driver almost hit me, I dumped the bike and seriously broke my leg. It's been a couple years and its healed but still never going to be the same. I can't run very well.Wish I never bought it.
>>28884792Love itI have a 2013 800 xc
>>28875288Buy 2 of these and spend the rest on a nice toy hauler.
Just bought one of these bad boys
Still tweaking my k100 that has a gsxr front end.
>>28894649Here is the matching toy hauler. Comes with bed, bathroom, kitchen. perfection.
>>28894649That's the absolute ugliest fucking piece of china shit I have ever seen. Are you on the right board?
>>28895632The angry transformer does look pretty cool. Shame it didn't live up to the pre release hype.
>>28894649.>inb4 rattling itself to bits >>28895052would look sick with new wheels and a full system
>No MTT 420rrI'm disappointed, /biz/
>>28895463I know it is cheap china material but it works and I can beat the fuck out of it and not give a shit. Just because you "made it" doesnt mean it is a good idea to throw away money on shit if you arent going use it as intended. Might as well be that Harley guy with the most expensive and loudest model with all the Harley accessories and jacket that rides it once a month for 4 months out of the year.>>28895938Damn right it will. I plan to make that happen. If it doesnt then I was not riding it correctly.
Honda Rebel 500. Can’t wait
Some old HD that I will chop and ride around the world. This has been a dream of mine for a very long time.
>>28893473I'd rather live free of fear and die like that, than grow old and die with some kind of degenerative disease and a lifetime of missed opportunities.
>>28875288>made it >riding a motorcycledoes anyone other than fat old boomers on Harleys do this?if i make it, i'm really not going to be interested in becoming an organ donor because some jagoff forgot to check his blind spot
>>28881195Fucking love those things
>>28895786it's still a kino apocalypse proof bike that can do it all
>>28896202also just going to say it:motorcycles are objectively faggy.apart from the fact that gays actually love bikes and all things related to them (leather), there's also the fact that you're straddling a big vibrating motor in roughly the shape of a dick.pretty fucking gay.
>>28896444using this logic, riding horses is gay as fuck
>>28896444Closeted gay hands typed this post.
>>28880260>live life in fear>live in the basement>avoid reallife >become rich with magic intermoney
I don't ride on the street does this count?
>>28886894I want one so bad. Is an mt10 too much bike if im 5' 6" 133 lbs but have been riding full-time without a car for like a decade?
>>28896586except riding horses and dressing in equestrian clothing isn't literally a foundational part of IRL gay culture.
>>28896148So instead you want to waste $1500 on a bike that will break by just looking at it.Look at those foot pegs. Look at that seat. Look at those handlebars.
>>28896786what have you been riding?
>>28882960I don't want a womb you fucking breeder slave-to-your-biology retard. I just wanna be a cute girl with a dick so I can be a hot biker side piece top. After some facial surgery, hair line lowering, and maybe a boob job if these don't get any bigger, this is totally an obtainable goal.
i ride a yamaha fz1. i love the bike. one day i'll replace it with a newer sport touring model, but i'm happy for now. my next purchase will probly be a grom to hooligan around town lol.
>>28875288Exactly my bike, man. But it would have to be a scrambler ver with orange/brown leather seat.
>>28893473based. you made the right choice.>>28893744you have no fucking clue what you're talking about.riding a motorcycle is something like 100x more dangerous than driving a car, which is already pretty sketchy, statistically speaking.
yup i'll be seeing you all in the OR soont. trauma surgeon
>>28876188Statistically, the average rider is an inexperienced moron. If you:>wear a helmet>don’t ride drunk>stay alert and aware of hazards>don’t ride 3x the speed limitThen you’ll be fine. I’ll admit bikes are more dangerous than cars, but by taking the proper precautions, you reduce the risk to far lower than what your statistics will have you believe
>>28897350>>28876188You're both retarded. do some reading:https://fortnine.ca/en/how-dangerous-are-motorcycles
>>28897292Do you like mts? I used to have an fz6 before I ate concrete on it. Now I have the sv posted above which I'm tryna sell after getting a ninja 650r (also kinda shite)
>>28896822*blocks your path*
>>28897586Most people ride like fucktards anyways, you have to ride defensively on the streets but I always see dumb fucks splitting lanes at 80mph
Every time a motorcycle fatality in my town is reported it's always a truck running over a biker. Why do truck bros hate bikers? Small dick jealousy?
>>28897350I'm speaking from a learned position with the relevant data right in front of me. I know exactly what I'm talking about, its you who is totally out of depth.https://www.iihs.org/topics/fatality-statistics/detail/motorcycles-and-atvs#alcohol-involvementhttps://www.iihs.org/topics/fatality-statistics/detail/motorcycles-and-atvs#helmet-useBut why would you try to learn anything when you can open your mouth like a drop out retard and get embarrassed instead?
Its my 2smoke Jawa 638 or ill get a chadbike Bmw R90S
>>28887607>consume ~1.5 gallons of fuel per minuteThat’s it? Pretty sure it’s much much more than that
>>28898029sorry, i was wrong... it's only 35 times more dangerous:For every mile traveled, motorcyclists have a risk of a fatal accident that is 35 times higher than a car driver.https://www.askadamskutner.com/motorcycle-accident/how-do-car-accidents-compare-to-motorcycle-accidents/
>>28897931ok, touchè. horses are faggy too.
>>28895891Boss>>28896424Dear Lord it's huge
>>28898469Yes, retard, you were wrong. Every single topic you broached you were dead wrong about, and you're so overwhelmingly astoundingly immature that you can't just stop talking out of your ass like a little babby.Individually each of these statistics is meaningful: Fatalities in which speed was a factor, fatalities in which no helmet was used, and fatalities in which alcohol was a factor.There just so happens to be enormous overlap between these three key factors, which is something that has been known and reported on forever.The riders most likely to die are speeding, intoxicated, and not wearing proper gear. They are the ones asking for it.If you ride sane, wear crash armor, wear a full helmet, and watch your mirrors every time you're stopped you'll be fine.
>>28898769so you're saying that motorcycle owners are just statistically more likely to be retards?ceteris paribus (go look it up), how much more dangerous do you (in your expert opinion) think they really are?in other words, how much more likely to die are you willing to be just to look cool on your little vroom-vroom?
>not buying a ural with a sidecar NGMI
>/dbt/ + /biz/ crossover episodedidn't know there were so many riders here. This is based. Main reason I am here is to get money for better bikes.
>>28896750Those are fucking sweet. My friend has a brand new one and it’s really nice. I have an 09 ktm 300xcw that I got last year, after riding cr250s exclusively for the last decade. That 300 power is addicting. And I’m only 5’6 145lbs so it really hauls ass
>>28898974I'm not engaging in your nonsense.I presented strictly factual information. This information made you upset, and you tried to call me out over it. I provided direct IIHS data showing you why your objection was uninformed and childish. Moving the goalposts and deflecting to some tertiary arguments is neither here nor there. If I wanted to waste my time talking to nonwhite retards I'd teach public school in Philadelphia.
>>28899218>being this bad at risk management>thinking you're ever going to "make it"good luck with that.ngmi though.
>>28898974> just to look coolt. has never rode a bike
>>28876516>Obviously if you're a bad driver/riderit is not about you, but about other retards who can't drive
>>28899568i grew up riding dirt bikes, actually.i stopped after breaking my arm at age 15 though.considered getting a bike as an adult long and hard, but decided not to after reviewing the statistics, and hearing stories like>>28893473
>>28899707I've always been scared my whole life but I started riding recently and and completely obsessed. I actually look like a faggot wearing ATGATT and riding a dad cruiser but I don't care.
>>28899707then you're a pussy
>>28900013ATGATT is absolute CHAD if you wear good crash armor and fashion tier jackets/pants.
>>28900013get a knox urbane pro and you can wear whatever you want over the top. ATGATT can be done really well if you have the pennies
>>28897912i'd have to see it in person, and i haven't. it seems to be same genre though. the flat black one >>28886256 posted looks sweet. haven't ridden/can't vouch otherwise.
>>28900169>>28900303I have second hand stuff for cheap. Motorbike gear is so expensive. I'll look cool when I make it.
Cool bikes Bros. I wish I had the balls to get a bike and learn to ride
>>28896156Holy shit just yesterday I saved the exact pic on my phone because I want to get it. However I am thinking on waiting for the 2021 model because I like the headlight more.
>>28900996You can always get a cheap used KLR and ride on trails and fire roads away from traffic. Riding is legitimately the most fun I've ever had.
>>28882010the only thing this poster has ever ridden was his daddy's knee
Rode for 12 years before giving up motorcycles a few years ago. Did many trips across the country. Kept me out of trouble and gave me something to live for.Post divorce depression and a paticularly bad close call made me leave motorcycles for good. I've moved on to things that make me just as happy now, as motorcycles did back then. I wish all the riders in this thread the best. Keep the rubber side down.
>>28901206Well I live in Cali Bay Area so it would be city driving for me if I wanted to get into riding. Unfortunately I don't trust retards with my life so I'll never ride
>>28901545Stop living in an area full of demonic homosexuals and needle drug using street shitters.
>>28875288Already have a ducati scrambler desert sled but I want to get a nice dirt bike to fuck around in the desert with. Thought I'd take the scrambler offrl roading more but it's too fucking pretty and I don't want to drop it.
>>28901620can't help where I was born bro. One day I'll move but job availability sucks elsewhere
>>28901545I’m from the Bay Area also. Don’t get a bike unless you only use it for scenic cruises through the countryside. Riding in the city/freeway is shitty
>>28899024Unironically want one of these
