Looks like you almost washed out when you hit the grass.

What kind of motorcycle should I get if I want to convert it to an electric motorcycle?
Something that's cheap and affordable in case i fuck up and easy to mod
Since it's a conversion I don't think CC matters, but something light that I would be able to get up to speed in so I can travel across the state.
>so I can travel across the state.
Good luck doing that with an electric bike. I hope it has enough torque to pull a trailer full of batteries.
>that feel when washing out after hitting grass
also dig this shit bruhs
>posting one sentence is the most fun you had in the last 4 days
tfw washing out
>go 100 miles until you need to recharge it by plugging it into a wall
wow that sounds amazing to me
I mean, it's more in the 30 miles but that seems good enough for me, I'm not really sure how far you want something to go until you can recharge it for free
But that didn't look like you washed out.
Washing out is when your front wheel slides out.
don''t be a retard you get an electric bomber.
they are actually cool.
things do a good 80km/h
Been watching the classifieds and craigslist in my area to see what comes up for my first motorcycle. I'd like to be able to drive on I-10 and highways with it but would also like to take it on the gravel/dirt/caliche roads in my area.
So far it seems ninja 250's come up most often while dualsports appear kinda rarely.
How badly would it affect a ninja on the interstate if it had dual-sport tires? Would removing the bottom fairing and installing a skid plate be worthwhile mods for what I'm after?
i've been washing out when i hit the grass before it was cool
just stay off that front brake. i hit grass going 60+ saturday and didnt go down
>i've been washing out when i hit the grass before it was cool
theres tons of them at the track now, base model and M alike. one of them highsided sunday. they're pretty neat. i watch out for R1s, EBRs, S1kRRs, and RSV4s as fast cornering literbikes. nearly everyone in the fast group is on a liter, but those are the ones that stand out for having 600-like corner entry speed and massive exit (helped by traction control half the time).
one of my friends wants the new R1 and that bike has been growing on me too. never rode a bike with a cross plane crank before. the older generation of R1s didn't interest me cause the frames had too much flex in them
>one of them highsided sunday. they're pretty neat.
I thought it was funny how you just added in there that one of them crashed then went back to talking about the bikes again. He hit the grass and washed out didn't he?
I bet he wishes he did, but it was a high speed kink and the bike was laying mid track when I came across it. Everyone crashes though. A friend of a friend tore up his brand new zx10r later on in group 2.
If I weren't a hipster eurotrash fuck I'd be a Yamaha guy.
Lots of them out there, but what person will have those skills yet bring one to the track? You don't think people just randomly show up and blow out dedicated track riders do you? I did see a duc st3 in group three once though
it's not that loud, I posted a sound webm somewhere. May do it again some time.
i helped a friend with his ninja 250 today. i picked up this bike with him last month for just over 1000. cant remember what year it is, but its the newer style. has been down on both sides, but everything works well, aside from turn signals, which the fucktard removed.
i want this bike so fucking bad. he's an asshole for getting his first bike at just over $1000 and it's newish, and riding it home.
the last bike i had was about years ago, maybe more, and i had to get rid of it for some stupid reasons. fuck.
today i fixed a small oil leak he had, cleaned all the nasty oil and road shit from all around the chain area, fixed his throttle tension, fixed his choke, which was frozen in place, and a few little odd bits and pieces around the bike.
it felt good to help out a new rider, and i told him that when he is ready for a different bike, he had better sell me his, and take into consideration the help i have been giving him, lol.
damnit i want to ride so bad.
i installed a quick release on my battery so i could add a usb charger. it charges my phone even when the bike is off though. how can i set it up so it only charges when the engine is on? i dont want to kill my battery accidentally.
so i gotta splice it? i screwed them right onto the terminals
Oh good cruiserfags are welcome again, I can post!@
If you want it to be controlled by your ignition key, you have to splice it or add another connector in there with a splice if you don't want to cut your wiring harness.
Or you could put a separate switch on it, but then you might forget about it and defeat the purpose.
I don't think those USB adapters draw any power at all unless they have a load (device plugged in) and draw very little even while charging your device. Unless you leave your phone plugged in for hours it's not going to drain your battery ded.
gonna at least throw some padding under that?
either that or add an inline toggle switch to turn it off independent of anything else
Fuck, I bought a '80 Yama for $300.
electro start doesn't work, so ill kick it. Will be my first restoration. Cleaning carbs and finishing the tank derusting tomorrow. Sould run by weeks end.
Chrome and detail will be last.
THE CAGER DID NOTHING WRONG!
>i dont want to kill my battery accidentally.
That is the solution to the original question.
>how can i set it up so it only charges when the engine is on?
While controlling it with the ignition switch doesn't necessarily make it only turn on when the engine is on, it has pretty much the same effect of making sure he doesn't accidentally kill his battery with it.
Damn. I snapped my footpeg lowsiding on wet stones at 20mph but the bike was alright other than a slightly bent shift lever meaning I had to return home in 6th gear (went up the gears just fine)
Thanks frame sliders
Got two complete footpegs for 23 dollars, unbent the shifter, now that I think about it that might have been why there seems to be an oil leak near the shifter
Jesus, is this still a thing?
>need to leave phone to charge while I'm banging you mom
>have to leave ignition on to have port on
>two hours later biku is dead from ignition being on
>you dad will be home in 10 minutes
you made a tiny draw into a major one, like your mom offering anal if I come over tonight
So /dbt/, which brand ?
Givi Trekker ?
Givi Outback ?
SW-Motech TraX ?
is pic related the only to mount my phone to my handlebars with ram mounts? my bars are high already, so i'd rather not use the middle part if i dont need to.
i can't find an x grip with a socket instead of a ball on the back
Top fucking kek.
American'ts, not even once.
There's a 280+ post thread all about it here >>13695136
Literally 4 year old "he looked at me funny so I broke his nose" tier shit.
Yep that's the way it has to be. It doesn't stick out that bad, and you don't have to make it stick straight up.
Also remember to tether your phone to the bike with a secondary strap/string unless you want to risk losing it.
>Also remember to tether your phone to the bike with a secondary strap/string unless you want to risk losing it.
any recommendations for phone cases with a hole for a strap? i have an iphone 6
id go with happy trails or jesse luggage personally
SW motech trax is the only other one i have any experience with and ive been pretty happy with them.
fair enough, looks tons better than the floorboards in there. you get it as a remnant or retail?
Reposting because didn't get an answer previously
Okay guise, it's time for the all important question:
Wat bike is gewd
>no more than 4.6 l/100km staying around 110km/h
>suspension and geometry set up for comfort more than handling
>good luggage capability
>possibly long travel for shitty poland roads
>hard mode: ABS
>impossible mode: TCS
>absolute madman mode: no more than 4k euros
>oh shit nigger what are you doing mode: not a v-strom/SV650
I don't have one, so I didn't say definitively. However, I think my parent's otter box had a little gap in the plastic that you could loop a small string through. Nothing big enough to put a lanyard hook or something like that through.
you just eliminated your best option m8
look at the bmw 650 bikes or maybe the kawi versys 650
the case sticks on my phone pretty well.
Surely you can at least find some used. I know they were sold there at some point because there were a couple uropors in dbt with them.
When it needs it, yes.
>put my rear turn signals back on today
>everything went as expected for the first time ever
I like my Buell. It's definitely a manly man's bike tho.
Only complaint is that while it is really fast under 90 mph with gobs of torque, it is not as fast as a 600 in the triple digits and really dies out fast around 135 or so.
anything ending with an "s" in the file name is resized so if you want a bigger version, just say so.
Original file was over the filesize limit so here's the full resolution with slightly less quality lol.
This is one thing that scares the shit out of me. Breaking down on the fast lane that has no shoulder. Luckily it was during traffic time for this guy, but even then.
I don't have insurance. Not required in my state. I think I was quoted liability at a hundred and fifty a year I think.
Then the Buell will be all you'll ever need. Torque is awesome. Makes it a really good commuter.
i wish, i have too much other shit to kill my budget already.
plus around here even the used ones sell for retarded amounts of money.
HE thinks its a real r6 kek!
I actually saw another motorcycle/crash today. Or at least the aftermath. There was a motorcycle laying on the ground and double yellows everywhere.
I guess the guy just washed out.
.webm partially related. I forgot to turn on my cam this morning and didn't record it.
I like it, but I wear a backpack that would cover up the letters.
this. I used my ski gloves and balaclava the other day and life was so much better
opinions on the Z1000? looking at an 08 model dealer used. anyone have any experience with one?
test rode it for 30mins and loved it but was wondering if anyone had any negatives on it?
Pod filters are like $250-500 easy.
Is there a DIY way?
>not converting your bike to electric
do you even live the /cyb/ world?
Oh no he didn't! Did you guys see what this guy just did? He crossed a double yellow! Just because a car is broken down in front of you and there is no shoulder, does not mean you can cross a double yellow. You better stay behind that car until that car can move or a tow truck comes.
OH EM GEE!!!
>get crash bars in mail
>excited to get HEKTIK without trashing my fairings
>realize I don't have a allen wrench big enough to remove the engine guard bolt that you need to replace to install bars on my FGS
>or a torque wrench
>can't ride at night on permit
>gonna bike to dales hardware
No hektik riding today I guess
yeah im looking at one thats fully black, not a fan of the brown/bronze seat.
pic identical to one im looking at
hmm, maybe try to find some sort of flange like pic related?
I only honk at retards who cross double yellows.
They cross double yellows illegally to get one pole position closer, but are still stuck in traffic. They usually only have one passenger, when carpool requires to, and are generally driving like jackasses and our moments away from being in a car crash.
That's a good idea, but the bolt pattern is kind of fuckie.
how much would I pay for it to be CNC'd with a flange?
if you could find something like this it would be sweet. drilling new hole is chump shit. paint it black and youre well on your way
>it's okay if I decide to share a lane with a car to pass it
>oh shit this car is pulling up beside me in its lane and passing ME
>NONONONONNO lane sharing doesn't work that way
>LOL I'll just ride down these double yellows crossing back and forth because lane splitting isn't illegal (it actually is on double yellows)
>NO U CANT CROSS THE LINES, CAR
>>LOL I'll just ride down these double yellows crossing back and forth because lane splitting isn't illegal (it actually is on double yellows)
has anyone here ever ridden a bike from the 40's or earlier? they look really fun.
except for it being a hardtail. how is the battle van coming along, I forgot you had that ish.
>get used bike
>order fender elim
>order led relay
Because some people like fixing shit and are not fucking pooftha poorfag jews like you, fucking fagget! i also fuckt ur mum, cuckboy!!
Friendly reminder to post your Honda bike collage entry pic at >>13680752
Any on the collage already? I'll try and get a pic for it tomorrow.
I found a Buell at an auto salvage place near my house, its a 675, runs well apparently, but has no key. They're selling it for 1500. What do you think?
*650 excuse me. They also has this tiny Harley for like 3000
I did my own mirrors because the old ones where broken.
>not installing an exhaust and intake though.
Buell blast a shit, there worst than a gs500 , thats why they ordered to be crushed in to blocks.
>they look like shit
I like them. all that matters to me nawmean. also it's really nice being able to see right behind me, and nothing in my forward field of vision.
Fucking this. Stop injecting you're two cents worth into everything you THINK you know about.
Wouldn't touch it with a bargepole in all honesty.
Blasts are absolute garbage. Erik Buell himself crushed whatever stock they had lying around into little cubes and sold them off, that's how bad they were.
When a manufacturer openly admits a bike they made themselves is garbage, and has the ones they've made crushed into cubes you know the bike in question must be pretty damn bad.
they work my man, all that matters too me, and they were 20$.
good luck m8. what are you getting?
>air cooled master race
say that to summer stop and go traffic
>tfw I can't filter
fuck oregon for that.
>implying I would detrip over some bants
>That's only because you can see yourself in them.
How can you see yourself on a picture of motorcycle with shit mirrors on an image board on the monitor of a pc, you must really want to suck kkk's dick.
>you must really want to suck kkk's dick.
I already have a grill for that, but thanks anon.
>tfw no hornet
vancouver is pretty neat. a lot cheaper than oregon, but you can still go to portland whenever.
I have been thinking a lot about getting a shadow 1100 for my next bike tbh. or a goldwing.
fuck I want this
yeah I plan on riding through the gorge with some pals in the spring, Can't believe how much fun riding is and i'm just lucky to be surrounded by good roads and beautiful countryside.
true that. if you need a suggestion, I would recommend you take highway 34 to waldport, or you can branch off 34 and ride to mary's peak. it's an insane touge. 101 is also nice if you want to ride down to newport, and come back on the i5.
when is this planned? and where you figure you will be riding? hopefully, I will be selling the CX by next riding season.
yeah. it would be hairy but you could. my dad split on his full size harley, I am sure you could in california. it isn't legal in oregon anyway so I wouldn't though.
Get the dual sport first IMO. Good luck bruh don't let the dealer screw you, be ready to walk away
already walked away from 2 dealers
one because the sales guy was retarded, and the other because old guy was a huge fucking dick and not helpful. thinking of calling him and telling him
>i'm not going to buy from you because you're a dick head mate
thing is, my buddy doesn't know or want to know how carbs work, doesn't know how to tune a carb, doesn't know how to wire anything and isn't going to put the effort in.
>tfw only 1 baiku
Kek, the salesman when I bought my Tiger was super pushy but I was there to buy so he really didn't need to try so hard. I would have backed away for the wrong price but I'm convinced he got confused and priced it what the other Tiger on the lot was supposed to be.
Yes, it started vibrating and rattling after 100, and I was passing a ton of vehicles, cunts.
I think im gonna cram on one of those suspension upgrades and see how fast i can send it through corners now.
The FJ is like a cruiser, only faster, and can sorta corner.
>tfw someone used a pic of it as the OP a while back
FJ isn't bad for 2-up. Wife likes the Tiger better but she didn't mind riding on the FJ once I put the top box on as a backrest
I don't know. If I was going to list it I'd probably ask what I paid - $1600, but settle for a few hundred less.
>2 up on rickety unmaintained bikes and scooters with children
for fuck's sake
sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-it that sounds appealing. I want something like this bad though. my dad had one and loved it. my dad also had a cx500 and loved it as well so I like his track record.
My dad had a GS1100 [still has but not rideable and hasn't been in years] and an Ultra Classic almost exactly like this one.
yeah he's riding this right now and I think it's pretty cool. still, I don't know exactly what I want but I need to try something new.
My dad makes me want a Harley because that thing is comfy as fuck. Dat fuckin price though
Pic is the GS as it sat last time I saw it
jesus that thing is hammered. and yeah I would love one, but they are so fucking expensive. he got his for like 4.5k with 700 miles but that is a deal of a lifetime.
Been sitting for as long as I can remember.
>make a cafe racer out of it
nigger if you want a cafe racer, buy a bike that is already a cafe racer. don't chop it up if it isn't already. restore these classics mang. restore them.
that's a damn shame, not even close as bad as the GN though, nahmean.
Easily trolled you are, my friend.
Yeah. I know he will get to the GN though. I think the GS is probably gonna be stuck like this with more sun damage for the forseeable future.
I really was looking forward to getting home to help steer my dad toward working on the GN and help him with it, then I had to get a damn job in NM ;_;
>restore these classics mang.
You are the biggest hypocrite around, one minute its make cafe racers, next its restore them.
Fucks sake, have you even managed to make your mind up if you love the cock yet?
If you are going to cafe a bike, buy one pre chopped my niqqa. I like cafes, but tearing up a perfectly fine old bike is fucked up mang.
also I love that brown pussy nawmsaying.
just do it brother, just do it.
I was hoping he would say he has figured out he likes the D, I want to cum on his face.
>nigger if you want a cafe racer, buy a bike that is already a cafe racer. don't chop it up if it isn't already. restore these classics mang. restore them.
that was the opposite of what you said a few months ago
>reach REM stage
>start having dream
>own two bikes, dream of both of them
>1 of them is not running because I don't know why as mechanically illiterate and don't know enough
>dream of using bandit as workhorse dd and fixing up the offroader duals port in the meantime
>new paint job + headlight. Restore bike
>have endless fun.
Damn it /deebeetee/.
I really want it running again.
I'm thinking of gopro recording what I'm doing and posting it here for advice.
Do you think that's something you guys would want to help me with?
Like a dbt restoration bike?
It'd a 125cc lifan burning black smoke.
Turns over and idles.
>dream about baiku
>he says that's gay
B-but this is dbt you know that right?
The only gay things here are riding with a girl on pillion, and harley.
which one is that? I just want a cruiser, but harley would be tight.
anon confirmed cuck
Got the bike for 350
It ran like a beauty.
I didn't put any oil in and then it stopped.
Hasn't ceased up though. Now turns over once I put oil in, but seems like it's burning it.
(Pls don't be mad)
No, because i dont like you fag.
i fuckt ur mum, fagget!!!
was this like the pre EBR buell?
