>>1000440 1. Can you accept the FACT that every single day, someone on the roads may actively try to kill you? If the answer is "no", then you're not tempermentally suited to riding a motorcycle.
2. Motorcycle recycling yards are FULL of bikes like Ninjas that new riders bought, rode for a while, then got KILLED on, because it was WAY TOO MUCH BIKE for a newbie to handle. Don't be that guy. Get a 250cc twin putt-putt bike to start with. If after a year you're still down with it and have been riding... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>998046 everyone should just have 2 bikes. One that's nice and looks good that you pour money into and one that's cheap and just works. Then you won't cry when you get nigged. No matter what lock you choose you can't stop a committed thief.
2017 specialized expert for expert cyclists only. sorry freds STAY OUT

I have weak knees, will cycling be good or bad for me?
All I can say right now is that I rode around a little for 3 days and my knees felt pretty sore but now they feel stronger than before after taking a break.
Also I don't want to be one of those super skinny, almost dead looking, skeletor eating disorder cyclist, but I don't want to get huge thighs. How should I train for decent aesthetics, just track training on easy mode?
>riding on some rural backroads somewhere in missouri >deer runs into the road fifteen feet in front of me, its gay hooves slip and it struggles to regain traction >i think this is it, i just bought this new bike and this faggot mongrel is going to ruin it >deer gets its shit in gear right before impact and we avoid collision
sup /n/. haven't posted on here really in years, but this happened today and i'm bummed out big time. just built this bike back up after a few years of being dormant. probably my third or fourth ride back on them.
these wheels bunked, or can i get a welder to fix? i know alum. is a high heat, but it can't be that hard to patch? should i be concerned about durability/stress on the walls if they 'patch' it? or just say fuck it and ebay some new wheels?
Having to add a complex system powered by APU is just adding pointless maintenance unless the plane is spending a significant part of its operating hours in the taxi phase. Maybe for short-haul aircraft, but that market is extremely competitive and going against the grain is seen as too risky.
what programs do you guys use to record your speeds/distance, etc. on rides and upload it? I am reaching LIGHTNING FAST SPEEDS and i want to brag about it on the internet. also it is cool to keep records like that.
>>1004314 Some days ago I read that government wanted the citizens to use bikes because the pollution is getting really bad on the cities. If you imitate murican way of life only bad things will happen to you.
Kinda sketchy, yet exhilarating. There is a good chance any of the drivers you encounter are drunk. Anyone walking around that time is likely up to no good. Whenever there is a news story about someone getting stabbed, its right around 3 am.
In the rare cases I'm riding that late / early (starting or finishing a long brevet), I ride pretty close to the middle of the to give myself maximum opportunity to react should any shit go down.
>>1004178 many a time sometimes drunk one or two times I crashed blind drunk into a freshly plowed fields and slept there until morning, snuggly fitting inbetween the rows somehow I feel like doing this boosts my immunity because after each time this happens I don't get as much as sniffles for a year or so
most of the time I ride sober tho and where I live at that hour I have road to myself so it's nice no spooky stories tho, wish I had some ghost encounters to tell
yeah dude. i recently bought a really expensive bike and started doing as much as i can on the weekends. also you could do some HARD sprints over the weekend if you don't have time for long distances. sprint till you can't anymore then take it easy then do it again
>>1003671 I would imagine it depends largely on how much your inability to swim is caused by fear of drowning. You fall off a bike, you're not gonna die, but even coughing on a bit of water can be fucking scary. Feels like you're gonna die.
As far as simple mechanics go, I think it's easier to learn how to doggy paddle from scratch than it is hopping on a two wheeled bike from the start. Balence is a hard thing to learn if you can't already do it.
I think learning to swim without arm floats was a lot easier than learning to ride without training wheels - but like you say, it was so long ago that it's hard to remember.
On the other hand, I think getting better at swimming is harder than getting better at cycling - especially if you don't live on the coast or work on a ship. You can just casually bike around or commute to work and get better every day on a bike, but swimming requires straight-up training.
I'm in college and looking to buy a bike for commuting. Don't have much experience so bear with me
Can I really fuck up that bad? There's a bike shop on campus so I should be covered there. with my area and price range most of what I can buy are older vintage bikes. vista cavalier, a foldable dahon, a peugot, and a trek 400 are in decent condition and fit my budget comfortably. The trek 400 needs new tires and tubes though, the others are usable.
By the way, I do have experience riding older bikes with not as many speeds/ no speeds and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Looks to be the Trans Canada Trail, or someone tweaked the route of the TCT and gave it their own name. Around Sask much of the TCT is just gravel grid roads. Other parts consist of pastures with gates on both ends, meter tall grass, with no actual path, completely unsuitable for riding.
Some of the designated path in my city is on roads I most certainly would not choose to ride on (narrow, no shoulder, square curbs, high traffic volume). And apparently using an expressway instead of the MUP, go figure.

>>998621 Why is that tank so small? How is that Huey firing rockets without any weapons mounted? How did that that tank make it through the water? Why is that shotgun firing tracer rounds? Why is there a battleship in the background when big gun battleships haven't been used in almost 30 years?
