Ride one. After that you won't care if it looked like a Victory Vision.
I looked around, saw no one, and did something I've never done before ... I sat on someone else's bike. I had to. I felt ridiculous on the little thing. And yet, I really kinda' liked it. Too bad I'd never be caught dead riding one .
Its a Transformer, right?
It makes a funny sound and then turns into an actual motorcycle, doesn't it?
Weld, my wife rides a Vespa and wants me to go on rides with her; I'm not a Vespa-rado, so I was thinking of getting this Grom 125... The youtube vids make it look like it's pretty fun...
919 with bags, trunk, windshield and a full tank of fuel.
Really wouldn't mind riding off into the sunset and taking fry cook jobs for food and gas money, sleeping under the stars, and not caring about anything else for a while.
Just sitting on one at the dealer made me want to laugh out loud with glee! I've seen those videos & it is the coolest toy I've seen in a decade. I'd like to see a 250 version of it but, it needs to stay as small as possible in order to retain it's character. I wouldn't drop the cash on one but, i don't blame anyone who does as it is obviously a hoot.
the last few years have been pretty lean but i thought when i started to see some light at the end of this shitty tunnel i'd buy myself a xr1200, but hd isn't selling them anymore. first buell now this . fuck fuck fuskety fuck fuck
You can find nice examples out there if you patiently search, I'm going to look at an '11 with 2100 miles tomorrow.
It's pretty much all I need at this point.
This reminds me of a comment Dave Edwards made about the BMW K1200R. He said it looked like someone rode a magnet thru a junkyard.
You're right. I'd ride one . I'd get in trouble though. The thing just begs to jump curbs etc. I envision something like that chase scene with the Mini Cooper in the Bourne Indentity
That's what they said about the R1200ST.
Really feeling the light sport tourers. Must be the weather.
That CB500R looks pretty sweet too, though I think I'd want plain white without the colored decals. The luggage looks perfect.
I just put about 40 minutes of effort to dress myself fully, remove the topcase, unpack the bike from the cover, remove the disclock, go grab some cash and after about 500 meters on the road I turn around and went back home.
I got bored, and that happens a lot.
This was a 3 minute ride.
The problem is the "good stuff" is 30-35 miles away and I can't be bothered
to ride all the way to that every time, and being on a naked bike that means
60-65mph is comfortable and then I gotta have the whole freaking day to
take a ride.
I should either get rid of the FZ6 and ride only local roads, and be mainly a
city hooligan, for which I need this:
Get on the freeway, hit 120mph, and get to the "good stuff" in a few minutes, but then I'd need the hooligan bike again.
The "get to good stuff bike" is likely this:
Those big Kawis always make me feel all tingly in my no-no place.
