i need your opinion, are these tires good for 95% street 5% light dirt?
my m8 uses those on his panigale.
He said they were great, did an entire around australia journey and never got a puncture, made the panigale workable on gravel roads too.
Transalp guy are you here?
Are we doing this tomorrow/sunday? Check your Emails.
it's an 1199 actually.
I agree they look great and photograph well, I've got a great snap of the back of one (a different one).
Sometimes their owners just disappoint me though, I think a little too many bought it just for the looks or perceived "prestige" (it's a ferrari on two wheels bro), around here last year the panigales were actually the highest selling sportbikes, above cbr's gsx-r's r1's...everything but the owners still have some kind of assumed air of exclusivity surrounding them (obviously this guy doesn't care about that lol)
The 899's are by far less afflicted by this phenomenon, usually when you see a panigale up out and about getting into it on the twisties or whatever it's an 899.
well this is what tyres that are literally designed to grip hard in wet conditions (and do nothing else) look like.
You can draw your own conclusions, (silica content also matters).
you wanna hear something crazy, he sold his multistrada to buy the panigale about 2 months before he went.
Slieve Gullion in Ireland. Just a tiny mountain but the forest park there has a one way scenic road you can drive along which is quite nice. Would have been nicer with less clouds and more sunshine.
>that happy feel when you finally manage to prop your phone up against a rock and get a half decent photo
>Riding around city
>Come up to 100km/h freeway
>At lights just before it
>Realise I can test the 0-100(60mph) time
>Blasting away, over run a bit, end up 20 over
>Heart is racing
>Completely forgot about counting
Oh well, lets call it 4.5, that's about average for the bike
Decent for a 250
one of these days ill pull up beside you at the lights tbh
>mfw some nazis still have a conversation in the old thread
you're cool, but you're not as cool as this guy
>another 125 bruh
you wouldn't want the conversation here, right?
tfw no xr6 slowmachine
you do some ammount of miles on that shitpiece, are you not from lurgan? i barely go more than 30 miles on my 125 because theyre so fucking shit and slow
cant wait to get a 6 hunna
he fucked a tranny and then he dropped his name because he didn't wanted to be connected to the shame anymore.
About 3000km since I bought it a couple of months ago. Starting to run out of new places to ride it without going 60+ miles to the west. I'm about 30 minutes south of Belfast. Hoping to get my A licence before the end of the year if I can find the cash and bother my ass.
Did he died?
>>another 125 bruh
I've been here all summer, m8.
was going to buy a '88 FZR 400 with a spare 600 engine exhaust and carbs etc from kildare for £320, the fella was willing to drive it to belfast for £400 all in
maybe you wanna get your wallet out? he says all the plastics are there just looks like it needs put together tbh
you could sell that engine exhaust and carbs and make back the money you paid for the whole lot
>implying putting a name or trip on would matter in this day and age on dbt
believe me or not, fam, I still lurk
never started and wouldn't know, tbh
Thanks. Looking forward to cooler weather because that textile is comfy as fuck
>and its a hoodie underneath
my heart was thumping the whole time i did my test and i used to be unable to sleep because i knew i had to drive tomorrow
dunno but it goes away eventually lad just make sure you have a reason to drive rather than driving for the sake of it like going to a friends house or commuting to work
I dunno man that seemed like a nice thing to do
my internet investigation skills tell me they had a conversation before hand. Like he paid for gas and the guy said "oh nice bike can I sit on it" and he agreed.
I would be hesitant to start it though, one wrong hand or foot movement and that bike is going to the grave
>Turning on my bike
>Decent lean, very tight corner
>Hit road reflector thing

Sweaty as fuck
>tfw fucking around in parking lot

>then peg touches
>all at about 35mph
that was a little butt puckering
>not bunny hopping over them
do you even race on the touge?
I let Alamoanon ride my FJ1200 after only riding for a month or so. It's not worth anything though so I didn't care if he crashed it as long as he didn't get hurt.
Is this worth $2500? for my first bike
we already told you
yes, its a good bike, don't worry about the mileage
God damn, I had such a splitting headache all day from soldering but if riding wasn't fun today I don't know.
Went and checked out a bit of the west of Berlin via backroads and an island. Felt like a GTA game, looking at the map, seeing some park, saying "I want to go there" and then riding there like a madcunt.
Then I decided to head home. Fired up the GPS because I had no idea how to get there without using the Autobahn. Then got to a point where I knew how to get home, said fuck it and went full throttle all the way home. For some reason 180 km/h didn't feel as fast as last time.
Also it's now getting cold enough for me to be glad about having heated grips. Was wearing several layers already but it still got bretty cold.
> tfw your bike's only company in the uni bike spot are now scooters and a BMW
So I got arrested for unrelated reasons and my baiku was left out during the most rainy 2 months of Florida's year.
I come home and my chain looks like this.
Is this beyond repair rust? I'm terrified.
*takes long drag on vape*
I ride adventure bikes
*Blows smoke out nose*
What do you ride?
a ninja 250?
*Adjusts boater shoes without socks*
That's a pretty slow bike bruh
*Studies liberal arts*
my WR450 is so much faster
*Votes for bernie sanders*
Those guys ride shitty cafe racers though. Also WR450 isn't an adventure bike
You know, I'm actually retarded. I didn't even consider cleaning it first.
I guess the guy was right, I AM retarded.
I dunno I guess I thought if it was rusted bad enough it would be fragile or something I'm retarded.
>refugees trashed an Audi A6
>owner asked multiple lawyers what to do
>you can't do anything and the government won't pay
CB500 / ER-5 / GPZ500
it looks to be more surface rust than anything
THE NUDA IS BACK
it's not his old one, it's brand new but still. RJ without Nuda was weird as fuck
>Could have gotten a 950 Super Enduro
Didn't he just buy a Super Duke as well?
Jesus Christ what does he work to afford this many bikes, a car, a dog, holidays all the time, scuba diving and expensive as fuck exhausts?
he doesn't talk much in his daily obversations so that's fine, doesn't feel like a Vlog. Only if he makes cringeworthy stuff like talking bikes.
Yep. Super Duke, Nuda, Grom and S1000RR if he still has it, not following actively.
might finance one if I have a more stable income. Because if I wait until I have the money there will be no more nudas.
whats your budget?
cb500f is nice if you dont want a 10-20 year old shitter
>fun to ride
>holds it value
When did they stop making the Nuda? I realize it was Bimmer powered and that's why KTM dropped it but the autism here is enough to hate it if KTM touched even one Nuda, and I assume they were still making them through 2013 when KTM bought Husky.
>When did they stop making the Nuda?
2013 I think right when they bought husky.
>autism here is enough to hate it if KTM touched even one Nuda
I hate ktm because pierer is a fuckwit, their bikes look like shit and they're just like bmw bikes (not the 15 years ago bmw).
I think he's actually jordanian royalty.
probably one of the second cousins or something.
All the men in the jordanian royal family are obsessed with bikes. King Abdullah has a motorcycle museum in his house.
pic related, the king and his son.
Bit nitpicky but noon looks doable too? Gets dark early these days!
Also bring your grandmother. Want to meet up in NL before going to Germany or just meet up at the location on the route? A bar on a square would be easy to find.
>they're just like bmw bikes
Not sure what you mean by that, talking of on-road KTMs only? Does BMW do many offroad only bikes?
>tfw no 500EXC Sixdays
Interesting. Prince william and harry are also into bikes.
william does track days and shit.
I can agree with that on both brands
Depends on the bike for both brands
Noon is fine too.
>Also bring your grandmother.
She wouldn't like it. Too scary and too far. She really hates I ride.
Meet up first in the Netherlands sound good. Happy Food in Barneveld?
For me it would be best to meet at the northern part of the route. So I suggest we meet up at this Gasstation in Ibbenbüren, it's right ion the Route and we need to fill up anyway before starting.
>Bit nitpicky but noon looks doable too?
I'm OK with starting at 12.
what kinda gear you guys rocking / recently acquire? Looking for some better gloves.
opinions please: I need a new daily, upgrading from a trx850.
>xjr1300/bandit 1250? or
>honda superhawk/suzuki tl1000s? or
>honda fireblade/yamaha EXUP?
Looking to spend about 4-6k aussie. I just can't decide how sporty to go.
I need gloves too, have some Weise ones that were great when I bought them in February but now the cold seems to come through the stitching.
Considering paying out for heated gloves as I'll be doing long highway trips at night come winter..
I feed those mushrooms with protein every time the hot secretary gets into work there
>Got some Wayloo gloves off of amazon
>Comfy and good construction
>Pretty damn cheap
>They don't make them anymore
Fugg, would be good for your trip too although they don't breathe all that well.
They are Thor brand, but not sure of the model as I got them from Wombatanon, assuming you mean the ones in pic related
Aye they're the ones.
Damn, Wombatanon is even more chill than I thought.
Neat. Thanks for the info.
>did you ever do you DIY panniers?
>mt-07 tracer delayed a year because Yamaha has allocated all of its 689cc engines to the cafe racer style version of the 07 range
Yeah, they turned out ok, they are not strong enough to, say, drop the bike on, and I doubt heavily that they are waterproof in any way, but they seem to carry plenty of weight with no issue. I have $70 into them vs $700 or so for the Trax panniers I want kek.
>Have hipsters taken over, bruh?
>"April of 2015 was the best sales month in Ducati's history. The company delivered 7,309 units to customers, largely thanks to the new Ducati Scrambler finally becoming available. The Scrambler isn't just a hit in the Unites States, where its hipster marketing campaign seems to be working wonders, but it's also doing even better in Italy, where Ducati's sales were up 69 percent this April with the Scrambler not just Ducati's best-selling model, but the best-selling model in general."
>in other news, Ducati have stopped all production of the Streetfighter 848 to increase production of the Scrambler.
Well that stands to reason.
The refugees obviously can't pay, so the only punishment would be incarceration or deportation.
The government isn't liable for refugee's actions, so there is no reason it should pay.
That's why you get full coverage on expensive cars.
Sorry man I don't know why my phone does this.
>the only punishment would be incarceration or deportation
which will never happen.
The problem is they can do everything they want and have to fear no consequences.It's a big fuck you by the government, who just lets in more and more.
>pull up craigslist to see if that's a shop
>can't find it, but I see a ton of replies to it in the form of other rants/raves
Find a motorcycle cop and tell him about it.
Putin is hilarious. Starting the bombing to exacerbate the crisis.
Merkel just has no balls. Fucking women ruining everything
Internet at home vanished.
I'm on a phone with one signal bar.
Without dbt I feel lonely.
STAY MAD CAGERFAGS
>walk to seminar ask her for a lift
>I'm planning to get a 500 too
>would you mind if I try it?
>proceed to drive her to your home making small talk
>hey do you wanna grab a cup of coffe with me tomorrow
Have fun germoney, they all already left Italy after having raped every single woman.
>It's my moms
>I have a Punto myself, so I plan on asking her if she had problems with her car because
Nope, not happening.
Bring a screw and screw it in one of the tires before the session starts, help her put the spare tire on and then tell her she can offer you a coffe in exchange.
>Oh no thanks, anon. Tyrone and I already have plans
stop being autistic
asks what she is there for and say you noticed you both drive the same car and how cool that little shitbox is and if she had any troubles. then just make smalltalk, some shitty jokes and if she laughs you can tell if she likes the first impression of you or not.
fail because you can't complete step one
Dude, your ancestors were killing and plundering and raping and conquering while his ancestor where building huts with cowshit and mud before dying of aids after fucking a goat.
You evolved first for fuck's sake you're competing with a monkey basically.
Mostly yes. My question:
Do you shoulder check every time you change lane or turn into another road?
>tfw I make videos on youtube and people comment how I dont shoulder check every single time
I don't bother when turning right because in 8 years of driving nobody has ever tried to overtake me while I'm turning right
Changing lanes I always do after not bothering one time and almost going into a car that wasn't in my mirror.
>stop being autistic
we're about 1.5 hours in the same car tomorrow, so I think there may be a chance to talk to her somehow
i try to do it everytime.
>Do you shoulder check every time you change lane or turn into another road?
I try to, didn't do it once today, immediatly had some tiny car behind me honking. Knew she was there, but didn't know she had moved next to my rear wheel while I tried to start splitting lanes.
>buying a bike
>no one has service records or any receipts for any of the bikes
>instant turn off
Is it just me? Maybe I'm autistic but I have a folder for every vehicle I own. Not just for oil changes but any part I get I file it away with receipts.when I sell the vehicle I give it to the new owner.
>"any service history?"
>"yeah mate changed the oil a while ago"
>30,000ks and that's the history it has
It would be like dating a girl and she said she's had sex before then it turns out she's had 100 owners and has 100,000 hours on her.
>we're about 1.5 hours in the same car tomorrow, so I think there may be a chance to talk to her somehow
I still remember the day of my exham
>in the car with 3 other chicks
>I'm pretty chill
>they're all nervous and talking about how they're not ready
>2 of them actually failed the exam
>"wow how can he be so relaxed"
>"he's not even talking at all"
No bitch, I'm just autistic as fuck
Nigga you can tell these things by just looking at the bike.
>how does the chain/sprockets look
>how does brake fluid look
>any oil leaks after testride?
>how are the tires
only thing I need to know is last oil change if it doesn't look new.
Needing service records is like
>gibe a guide to date a wimmen pls
I bet you're a virgin fuck off to /r/seduction or ask baird
And this is why I barely browse /dbt/. If you think all there is to a motorcycle is tyres sproket chain and oil leaks your either only buying near new low mile bikes or have never had to wrench before
If I want to enable monetization it says
>I will not opt-in any content for monetization for which I do not possess sufficient rights.
does that mean if I make a cool music video I will earn nothing and they can probably ban me from adsense for using content I don't own?
I have "autistic parts" lel
>i don't know the correct english translation but it's diagnosed
but I can somewhat make a normal conversation I guess. I just can't really talk infront of a large crowd or look people in the eyes
Damn, I wish I could be like that.
I just get friendzoned before I even get a chance.
It's pretty hard to get a gf from that position, not impossible though.
When going to buy a bike ask for them to not start them, so you can hear it cold start.
Check if it's mechanical quiet (put hand over exhaust end) when it's running
If that sounds good, the engine is fine.
it was really strong yeah, but i have it in control (a bit) most of the time, diagnosed social phobia yes
tell us about your day and we will tell you :^)
kill you're self faget
>somebody wants to buy my bike
>tell them wrong address
Riding motorcycle is so star wars
Lässig. Locker. Cool. Geht ab wie ne rackete
Therapy doesn't help? What's the point going on then...
w-who is you
basically, imagine it like being shy and that in only way more extreme.
basically cold sweat, blood pressure rising, can't think clear n shit like that.
well at least you have a diagnosis then
Yes it does actually, gained more confidence by working on mi image and who I wanted to be.
Then I slowly exposed myself to doing stuff that I couldn't before, I'm talking about going to the store to buy groceries here.
>tfw social phobia
>friends of parents come over
>hide in room all day
>get intense headaches due to dehydration and no food
>pretend to be asleep when called to come downstairs
The Münster route is 4:18 hours according to the TomTom Rider 400. Battery life is about 4 hours.
I guess we gotta go fast
>mfw /dbt/ is autistic
any normal people here
Oh I have similar problems, but I guess it is a much more tame level.
If I don't know a person or how they respond to something I get similar symptoms. If I know the person I'm talking to or have to talk to someone/an audience about something I know really well, then I do really well.
I have it on good authority is not Transalpguy
>tfw that's the reason all my friends are potentional school shooters
we actaully really had a meeting with all the teachers and the parents of me and my friends because of that
it was quite impressive.
>also makes it easier to talk someone if you know that they have similar interests
yeah. I have a job where I have to deal a lot of customers. They make small talk and whatnot, but I just don't know what to talk about with a complete stranger besides "yeah I'm doing well, how about you?"
However there have been instances where I noticed they had similar interests and I was actually able to go about a normal conversation.
>we actaully really had a meeting with all the teachers and the parents of me and my friends because of that
>it was quite impressive.
What? Did your school just decide it was dangerous to have so many social outcasts coming together, and potentially forming plans?
it''s 0007 already m8
don't die out there
well it was just stupid, we also had a letter send around in class that "some people" are a "potential threat" in the class all because we enjoyed talking about guns and videogames
>and my friend owned a softair gun and send me a pic of it via facebook
fuckin kek, we were 14 or something like that
>implying grass isn't the scariest/most-difficult shit known to man
Why do performance liter V twins sound so fucking good? If I just rode my bike around revving and accelerating like an asshole I'd probably get a chubby from the sound alone. The only thing that sounds better is a Crossplane R1 with a Toce exhaust system on it.
Anyone ever go on group rides? about to leave for the monthly one near me. pic is from the last one.
