Just got back from a ride with 30-40 folks, just mobbing through the city at

high rates of speed being loud fucking hell raisers. So fucking fun! :D

All my bikes decided to die this month. Top-end rebuilds all around.

 

There's a few places I know of that rent bikes for $150 a day. Im talking multistradas and speed triples. I'd be down to check it out.

I'm already renting a yaris or an aveo for a week I can't pay for a bike too. How much is it to fix ur top end? I gotta have something to do for a week between beach interviews and apt shopping in San Diego...

the cb900 has no compression in 2 cylinders and he f4i probably has a couple warped valves too. Its been an expensive last couple of months.

nope. its a honda. LOL

 

Id like that first one if it wasnt dragged out, had ground clearance, a shorter wheelbase, risers, and 17" rims.

 

Second one needs tighter tollerances between the motor and frame, a few other parts but i quite like the fairings.

i just don't like shit that looks so sleek. reminds me of shitty cars from the future. i like things a little more rugged.

Fiddy that thing is fucking hilarious. I love how OCC gets exponentially more retarded as the years go by.

 

I've come to the conclusion that what I like most about motorcycles is that they're the closest I'll come to

flying an airplane, or being an aeronautical engineer... so what I look for in a motorcycle is that sleek, no

frills, tested and simplified engineering that accelerates, dives into corners and sounds like nothing else

out there. Sleek, perfected engineering—And lasts for-fucking-ever. My favorite bikes right now are 24-

Hors Le Mans bikes, which if you're at all acquainted with the styling and engineering of modern-sport

bikes, there's some really amazing querky one-off-ness going on, but also a lot of leading-edge tech that

makes them faster, lighter, more comfortable, and more reliable than the street bikes they started life as.

 

I look at cafes, like really old cafes with the external pipes running oil to the head cylinder, clutch and

running gears outside of the motor block and I think, that looks awesome but I wouldn't be caught dead

riding one through some mountain pass in bumfuck nowhere. ESPECIALLY now that my sideyard is a

graveyard of good looking and well-meaning motorbikes that didn't make the cut. MOST bikes dont seem

to take too kindly to 1000 miles a month.

I need to get me a pickup for the bikes. Theres a yellow one just like this on CL for 9800...

 

Shit that looks cool but something that would likely drive me to kill people if something went wrong:
