    Oh ya, I'm jus sayin since a few years people have been calling everything a cafe racer and it's been gettin on my nerves. That's a real nice moped though, I'd love to have one when I leave for college. Those mudgaurds on the 73 are neat too
    On the dutch E-bay there's a totally stock GN250 for sale and it's labelled café racer, it's getting on my nerves too.
    Also the mudguards are very rare, everyone just took them off and forgot about them because they thought it was for old people and pussies. vv

    Hi, I'm struggling to find a good place to ride my dirt bike for either the day or maybe camping then riding some more (e.g a big field or a track to ride on). I live in the UK in Herefordshire, anyone have any good suggestions?

    Might want to join some sort of (online) off-road club, I'm sure there's one.
    Get a friend who has a farm, every farmer out here has a dirtbike and messes up a few fields now and then.

    Today I was riding my motorbike to work. A car decides to change lanes just as I am passing him. I have to take evasive maneuvers, brake, honk, cuss, yell etc. :argh:

    I disagree. If you've got get a 50cc, get something cheap. Don't waste your money on shit that wants look like something that it just can't be.
    Better save that money and get a real bike when you're old enough.
    Get a used Zündapp or something, the shittier it looks, the better. It'll be cheap, just as "fast", easy to maintain, and certainly more unique.
    There's nothing wrong with an Aprilia RS50 as long as you don't buy one new.

    Always wanted one, but ended up with a silly Peugeot Speedfight instead.

    Not to mention people think Zündapp and Kreidler parts are worth their weight in gold.

    I went for a 30km blat in celebration, even though it was raining, that afternoon. Today I got off work at midday and did another 60km in the sun shine :D
    I only just got home and under cover when no more than 10 seconds later it started to bucket down. Hopefully tomorrow the weather should be good enough so I can ride to work in peak-hour traffic without having to worry about rain.

    I got a '93 Suzuki PV, very popular in Finland.
    I was too lazy to get a picture of my own PV, but it looks exactly like this, just a bit lower.

    Why would they do that? Fucking weird. How much are they charging for this "taster" session?

    I've never bothered to get a motorcycle endorsement because I like 48cc engines but how hard is working a motorcycle in comparison to a normal moped of around 50 pounds weight with a clutch lever?

    I could never ride one of those. I'm way too tall and my legs are way too long.

    Edited:

    I do have one of those. It's so much fun to do wheelies and shit with it

    It's not registered for road use tho. Not like I would ever need it for that.

    I think so, the sidecar is removable.

    If you remove the sidecar on most models the steering will seem very twitchy, as in when you turn you will feel like your about to fall. However on the new retro model it will be a bit more ride-able without the sidecar.

    Since Tuesday I've done about 400km. Half of that was done yesterday just cruising around the city.
    The addiction is well and truly set in.

    Saturday afternoon another mate joined us on our cruise and we went to an awesome lane way in a new housing estate.
    I stitched two stills together from a video we took. My mate is riding the Ninja 250 on the left and I'm on the right (other mate is filming).

    I feel like my parents would let me get a bike if everyone in jersey didnt just swerve over 3 lanes without a blinker in their pink tanks

    some assdick pulled out like 2 feet in front of my friends dads front tire, but he knew the kid and said that if he ever pulled something like that again he would kick his fucking ass.

    If i ever move to upstate new york i think i would need to get a motorcycle, almost no traffic, and all the bars have biker discounts :buddy:

    New Cbr 600. It was dropped on the other side but it's not bad unless you're up close. I'm probably going to buy new fairings anyway so whats the big deal. It was a great buy.

    It's way heavier. You definitely can't throw it around like you could with the ninja. But the power is a HUGE difference. At least that's there to pull you out.

    Also I don't know if anyone can tell, but if you look at the front tire it's completely bald. Yeah... gotta replace that this week.

    I stuffed up the last couple rises on that run because I was going too fast, but it was fun anyway.

    Edited:

    0:40 we start the run up.

    Ok Facepunch, so I am buying a Motorcycle to ride from school and back in the States, something not too powerful, but something powerful enough that I can enjoy and chicks will find aesthetically pleasing.

    I have ridden a motorcycle before and I am permitted to operate one.

    I have been looking in to 250 Ninjas but I'm also open to other suggestions (Not only street-bikes of course) such as Enduros.

    The cost of the bike needs to be less than 3k Preferably. Insurance and safety gear of course have already been acquired. Also preferably the bike needs to fit two people, but one-person bikes are fine (I need one with room for a person to sit behind me, which of course might throw out the Enduro option.)

    It needs to be small too, 250 Ninja's size is almost exactly what I want, but in my area those are running for 5-8k new, Enduros are 4k.
