Xr650r for next bike? Mostly off-road used dual sport, might commute a short distance every once in a while(5-10 miles round trip).
I ride a 200cc 2 stroke enduro right now, and I don't like mxbike seating. The xr felt like my enduro and I loved it. It's a bike I can ride around town, and then throw in a friends truck and ride in sand dunes because it has so much power.

Jesus Christ.
I just had the first day at an 'advanced rider course' being taught by a police instructor of 24 years and he was saying you should counter balance the bike (literally keep body perpendicular with the ground) for all street riding, not just at low speed.

He claims that it improves visibility and better ability to emergency break without falling off mid corner.

He claims that hanging off or even just positioning your body towards the radius of the turn is purely a racing technique that isn't useful on the road because your bike is never pushed to the limits of traction there.

What the fuck is this all about.
>>
>>17234670
Stickerfag.

>>17234684
>>17234748
What he said.
Not a CO native tho, which seems to be important here. Military reasons.
And in the short time I been here, I've learned that the drivers are worse than Cali somehow. And with snow it's downright deadly, seriously, for a place that get gets it often it's retarded.
>>
>>17234816
I mean, he's right if you're commuting around.
Those courses are designed for redditors, dude.

If you need one of those courses you probably shouldn't even be on a bike in all honesty.
You would learn more after a weekend in the desert on a dirt bike.
>>
>>17234816
He's completely right as far as notmal traffic is concerned.
Riding on some deserted back road in the middle of nowhere isn't street riding.
>>
>>17234816
All those things are true assuming you ride your bike at the same speed a cautious person drives a Corolla (or even quite a bit faster than that actually), which in theory you should because your bike stops worse if anything.
>>

>>17234835

Should I look for
a) an A2 legal bike and test ride it myself,
b) an A legal bike and have him test ride it (finding the time is an issue),
c) an A legal bike restricted to A2, test ride myself?
I'm veering towards option c) so he can derestrict it down the line if 48 PS gets too boring. Plus I'll probably upgrade my license later this year or next year. I'm planning on keeping my current A2 baiku indefinitely as a cheap commuter / city bike. There's a chance I'll get dad's bike as a hand-me-down later so it'd be nice if it had around 100 PS then.

Nah, he dislikes the styling on the GS. He's more an RT guy, followed by naked / standard bikes. I'll ask him about the V-Strom etc but I expect he'll find them disgusting.

The thing is that a heavy bike isn't adviced when getting back, and the other bikes he likes aren't exactly comfy. Although the F800RT might fit the bill, don't know of other lightish tourers.

Only CB is 4k, Versys is an option, Ténéré is not his style.
I found some nice FI Hornets for 3k and there are ER6n's as well (he liked the Z650 at the recent fair).
Again: Should I go for a restricted 100 PS bike, an A2 bike, or an unrestricted 100 PS bike (and let him test it)?

how tall are you?

They have an insanely low seat height which will be really uncomfortable without race rear sets which will quickly bump up your price. Otherwise, cool bike but kms is pretty low for a cb400, plus it seems a bit too cheap. If it looks like its in good condition, id make sure you give the mechanicals a thorough look over.

My first bike was a honda hornet 250. Very similar bike with similar power, but a screaming redline and most importantly a 600cc sized frame. Because of the bigger frame, I could comfortably ride it with my legs in the correct position on the tank and not dwarf the bike.

So I am trying to change the oil on my bike, but I realize that one of my rear pegs is broke off.... and the possibility of standing the bike on with my rear peg mount is kind of pointless now due to the balancing issue. How fucked am I?
>>
>>17235202
why would you need to balance your bike
if you know the quarts needed just flush it and fill it up
if you're changing filter too add the bonus amount later, after having ran the bike for a few seconds
>>
>>17235061
2 months is fuck all

My sv started and runs fine, it sat for 7 with no prep work and a near empty tank.
>>
>>17235207
Balance it so that all of the oil drains evenly. Or so that's what I thought the purpose of the stand was for. I don't wanna mix even a small amount of dirty oil with the clean. But I guess it doesn't matter?
>>
>>17235226
Just grab the bars and lean it to the side, dude.

>>17235202
Not fucked at all, just sit there and hold the bike upright for a few minutes. Its what I always do.

that's why i said "flush"
meaning you waste some oil to get out the gunk

It's better to be a poser with a nice bike, because you can always get over it

It's worse not being a poser, but having no bike because you crashed. Or having a bike you could ride in theory, but shouldn't because half the paint on the right side is ground off and everyone would laugh at you.

No, my suspension is made for shitty roads and lack of roads.
Bit soft for going fast, but it's not like I can do that.

>>
>>17236184
It's soft for what it is, stiff for what it isn't, and the preload and damping settings will only get you so far in either direction.

This is like the hond accord of bikes. A very uncomfortably comfortable ride.

>>17236184
Wouldn't even know what was right.
I'm on an SV650 L7, so I can only adjust the back preload but I've left it on stock since I bought it.

i did fuck around with the preload a little. I think i noticed it being more stable in corners with less preload but its easier to get into a corner with more preload.

Where else do you guys shop besides craigslist for enduros/supermotos? It's hard to find something good for under 4k. Already have a cbr but want something for the dirt
>>
>>17236280
your owners manual probably has the correct sag setting. you're supposed to preload the spring(s) for your weight.
after you set your sag you should also measure to the spring to see how much it's preloaded. if its out of the acceptable range you need either a softer or harder spring for your weight.
otherwise the dampers wont do much with a spring that's too hard or too soft.

as for adjusting dampers, specifically rebound.. shit is a black art.
and imo only truly tune-able by having someone watch the bike as you ride it.

setting sag though is imperative for correct geometry and really easy to do.

your fork is scratched and burred or something.
fork seals don't "blow out" from riding unless you're bottoming out the suspension.

and you're on the road which means there's far less compression and far less dirt.

What should my next bike be? I currently ride a 01 SV650, as it was my first bike. Been riding for 4 years now, am looking to get into the sportier side of things. Definitely want an inline 4 because I love that sound. Have been thinking about the GSX-S1000 as I like the more relaxed riding position, but I know I'll still want a rocket if I don't get one.

What do? Should I settle for a 600? Try to find a 750? Man up and find a liter bike?

How big a job is a handlebar swap? I'm finding that the 'up and over and back' cruiser-ish bars on my CM250C do not agree with me. If I was to swap to something that was lower and more straight across, how much headache should I expect? The first thing that pops into mind if the length of the clutch and brake cables. Are they likely to need adjustment, or can I just leave them pushed out in front?

I fucking hate snow.

I just wanted to ride my recently acquired 2012 WR450F.

>>17238155
you could get a plenty decent bike for that much
>>
>>17238212
I just don't know if I can justify making the leap from cage to bike. I live in the southwest and we not only have plenty of great roads for riding but less than 20 days of wet weather a year (not counting some strange winters).

plus I've never ridden before but I really really really really have the itch and I'd do everything right (buy proper gear, not just spend all my $ on bike)...I guess part of me just really is hesitant about giving up the cargo space, as lame as that sounds
>>
>>17238203
You could call up your local driving schools and see what they charge for a Direct Access course. Or see if there are any good independent instructors around who can give you some kind of estimate.

I did my CBT and rode a 125 for half a year before going to an instructor who put me through lessons and the tests for my full license.

Just do it m8, you'll find you need a car less than you think you do.

>researching shoes/boots on revzilla
>wear a size 10 (US) or 44 (EU)
>have a $100-$120 budget

>TCX X-Square Sport Boots
out of stock, but my current favorites (pic related) and might try to get them from amazon or something

>TCX X-Ride WP Boots (on closeout)
out of stock (also sizes go straight from 40 to 47 wtf)

>Puma Roadster V3 Boots (closeout)
out of stock

>Puma Roadster V3 Gortex Boots (closeout)
out of stock

>Puma Desmo Boots (closeout)
out of stock

>Cortech Vice Waterproof Shoes
actually in stock, but the least protective

wtf is going on? is my budget too low? is this normal for shopping closeouts? does revzilla frequently run low on stock (and are the X-Square Sports likely enough to be restocked that I should register to be notified?) Are these boots too old? (I think a couple of the Pumas are from 2010)
>>
Is the Honda cbf600 a good start?
>>
>>17238274
How about this, save up some more and buy some real boots. Those shoes won't do jack shit. Literally save up 70 more dollars and buy some Cortech Latigos

>>17238308
It's not a turbobusa but it's alright
>>
>>17238326
Looks better. Thanks for the advice, hope I can find a cheap one.

So is starting out on a 250 a good idea if I've never ridden before at all or will I end up "regretting it and wishing for more power" like I hear from some people?

was the cager at fault?

Colorado. I highly recommend studded tires if you want to ride on snow. I've done it many years ago and remembered it sucking. I tried it again today and it still fucking sucks.
>>
>>17238249
I mean it sounds like I'm making excuses at this point but I really dont know how much/little I can get for my shitbox...It's a VW so I can always ricer tax it and pawn it off on CL to some mexican for $5k or something

but it is a shitbox, make no mistake about it
>>
>>17238355
That's a clean hawk
>>
>>17238072
Wanted to ride.
It was supposed to snow/sleet for me.
Went anyway.
Was nice out, almost no wind even

Always take the chance my dude.
>>
>>17238313
that's fair - i'm checking those out now - but i'm just getting started and buying my first full set of gear. I'm pretty sure one could say the exact same thing about every single item on my list, and an extra 100 on everything adds up quick.

on the other hand, i have 3k earmarked for the bike and I can probably find something 2-3 hundred less than that...

here's the rest of my buy list so far

>helmet - $180 - Icon Airmada
>jacket - $300 - probably textile
>pants - $200 - probably kevlar jeans? idk
>gloves - $100 - Alpinestars SP-8 V2 (maybe an SMX Air-2 or SPX Air Carbon)
>boots - $100
>chain - $150 - Kryptonite New York Legend Chain With Padlock
>lock - $100 - XX-10 Disc Lock with Alarm

i'll be in warm weather mostly (TX/CA) and kind of want to be able to wear the shoes/pants to work. Might look at overpants or strap-on armor instead of straight pants.
>>
>>17238274
Of course it's normal for closeouts to be sold out what the fuck do you think a closeout is?
>>
>>17238349
It's not a bad idea.
You can start on a Peter, imo, but 90% of people are too stupid to. I had a 954 as my first and didn't die. Hell I never even dropped it.
Just realise if you get something bigger they is a greater chance of fucking up, and ride for it

Nigga CA is double full
count your blessings more of them aren't wising up and getting out, although good memes like austin and houston were progressive and conscientious did a helping

meh, only in CA for another year or so of school
>and if i get a job in the bay area god forbid

Why do people hate Cali so much. We're not all numale cucks.
And whenever I tell someone where I'm from, the ugh and eye roll begins.
Fuck, it's not that bad.
And if you don't like Californians going to you're state, maybe don't do things that line up with Cali.

Can you publically declare your support for the current US President. Not because of his policies, but because it's how a civilized democratic system works and not worry about getting jumped or having your bike kicked?
>>
Newfag here
Trying to learn how to ride will probably enroll in a course later on
What's a good beginner bike?
Budget is around 1-4k USD. Want something light so it won't give me trouble at DMV. Is the Suzuki Intruder good for this?

This is my town craiglist if you want to send me any good bikes

https://sharp.dft.gov.uk/testsratings/icon-airmada

I'd suggest another helmet other than Icon. Everything else seems alright, it is your first gear set after all. Textile is more flexible for all year riding in the first place.
>>
>>17238494
CA keeps a multitude of moderately happy but unsuspecting people trapped in thinking that other states are not worth living in. The truth is that there are many states that would give better or cheaper access to a similar lifestyle as CA.
People in other states get buttmad when either
A. Californians repeat the tired and false narrative that it is 'the best' and 'most special' place to live.
or B. Californians realize it isn't that great if you don't make enough money to be in the top tax bracket, and move to other states raising demand and stepping on the toes of everyone who lived there before.

>>17238550
I'll sell you my kawa z750 for 2k.

>>17238550
or just enroll in MSF and not have to worry about the DMV test?

>>17238554
ah thanks, i've seen that site posted here before but it slipped my mind.
yeah, others i'm looking at are the Scorpion Exo 410 and the HJC CL-17, which i believe was posted here the last time i saw someone asking for budget helmet recs. I'll plug a few into that site, thanks.

Scorpion definitely has better quality products for less money. Emergency release cheekpads, snell rating. HJC and Icon don't and the HJC only has two shell sizes, which means the CL-17 is generally a pretty bulky fucking helmet. Plus the liner in Scorpion helmets are pretty comfy. Always try them on first though, try and find a cycle gear around and see what fits best.
>>
>>17238274
look at lots of reviews on whatever boot you want because the sizing is all over the map ive found. most reviewers will give you a heads up if they run large or small. i found cortech right on the money with their conversion however with astars i run a size smaller.
