When you're in traffic and you stall your bike and accidentally press the Horn instead of turn off the indicator

How do you recover? How do you let other cars know you're just retarded and not to b mad?

Soon ill need to get a new helmet and i am considering a full face helmet with visor + an offroad type bill/peak.

I ride a lot in the rain and i am wondering if a peak/bill will aid in throwing the rain away from the visor? I've never ridden with such a helmet.

PLS HALP

Usually if I accidentally hit the horn it's just a short blip, which no one usually gets upset over. Just spill some spaghetti and awkwardly wave, you'll be fine.

Don't really see how a sun peak would help at speed desu. Best bet is a hydrophobic coating on the visor and a helmet that seals well.

Personally, I find a lower screen with a cutout (to provide laminar air) is very effective at clearing the visor. Also, if you can afford it, buy a Shoei or Arai. I pooh-poohed them for a few years of riding before finally biting the bullet with a Neotec. It's beautifully comfy and doesn't grab in the wind when I turn my head like my HJC did.

>>18030993
i only know one person who actually hates sportbikes like this, and he crashed one on his first ride because he somehow couldn't turn the bars and couldn't find the footpegs either. he does the whole song and dance. you buy them for attention and pretending to be a power ranger, they're only ridden above 100mph, they "gots no torque!". he rides a victory whatchamacalit now.

but if you actually know how to ride they're okay. kind of fun, actually, and not too impractical, and 600s haven't been gutless since EFI appeared and 1000s haven't been deathtraps since traction control was invented. they're just not roadtrippers. if you understand that, they're arguably better than, and a more mature choice than "urban hooligan" nakeds and supermotos.

the actual child filter in motorcycling is loud exhausts and thinking bar risers don't belong on sportbikes.

If the group bikers at my job says anything:
Yamaha rider #1 - crazy motherfucker, totalled a gorillion bikes, scrapes peg turning into the parking lot, does a wheelie on the way out, rides almost every day because cars aren't fast enough
Yamaha rider #2: Died in a canyon
Three honda riders - All sane adults with well kept bikes, weekend riders
Suzuki rider #1: GS500, can't afford a car
Suzuki rider #2: "I did 200mph on the freeway once bro". Almost never rides.
Yamaha rider #3: Keeps a WR450 in the back of his truck at all times

>find a scrappy local guy not tied up with a brand.
In my town the cheap shop is a Kawasaki affiliated shop.
Most bikes outside, waiting to be fixed, are Honda's and BMWs. Barely see a Kawasaki, only the latest model in the showroom, between all kinds of brands.
>>
Where are all these 'crazy' riders you guys talk about? Been riding for 2 years now nearly every day and everybody just putts around and is afraid to lean too far except for one dude on a BMW 650gs that was splitting with me at like 160km/h and flying on dualsport tires. My friend on his cbr600 couldn't even keep up.

Every time I meet an s1000 rider they never say anything they're just dragging knee on every u turn, anywhere they can, doing power wheelies and stoppies everywhere. You eventually talk to them because wtf Gramps is skilled as fuck. And then he tells you about he's owned half the bikes the kids brought out that day, and also about why his jacket looks like it's taken some major hits

Kevlar textiles with CE armor, but after highsiding last friday and fucking my tailbone I'm definitely investing in armored shorts.

I like the textiles because they look good enough to wear casually and have cargo pockets. Ive become addicted to cargos but thankfully im not the only one.

Guys, I have a confession to make. I finally accepted the truth when I was at the eye doctor's today picking out new glasses. After trying many frames to see what worked best. It was between a pair of Nike... and Ray Bans (Not the Wayfarers, they were smaller.) [spoiler]I picked the Nike frames[/spoiler]

It finally dawned on me: liking Ray Bans, liking RSD stuff, I drank a PBR one night, my sportster with clubman bars and taller rear shocks for a "cafe" riding style. I guess I have to admit that I'm just a hipster.

I have realized this. Like what you want to like. Everyone likes something that someone else thinks is dumb.

I legitimately worried about "...I don't wanna look like some hipster on his 'cafe' sportster." because I didn't want to come off as someone who is in to riding as a fashion statement.

Then I realized that worrying about that stuff is really dumb, and I should just like what I like and make no excuses for it. And the people out there who ARE in to riding as a fashion statement, well that's their deal. Why should I care?

It protected my back and neck perfectly. No pain not even whiplash, it just doesnt go all the way down to the tailbone. It was a highside and I landed on my tailbone Friday night and ate shit but only my tailbone still hurts.

I had the Helite Turtle, it was 650$ on revzilla with 30$ credit back. Ill have to send it in for inspection but I very well may have only lost that 25$ c02 cartridge asise from bike and ass pain. I was also wearing steel alloy guards over me knee and elbow CE armor which got pretty scratched up.

Theyre gaining popularity fast and more and more brands are adopting them. They're used extensively in motogp already too. Tech's about a decade old, they have them for horses too but fuck those.

I really liked the Helite's sandwich armor design with an upgradeable hard CE outer over the airbag. I dont think back protection gets better than the turtle. Neck stabillization was the main selling point to me. Jackets wont give you that and like I said I dont even have whiplash.

>I dont plan for shit to hit the fan
That's no justification for not having sliders, though. No one plans to have a crash. If you're not used to taking passengers be extra careful, tell her how to hold on, keep her knees tight on you, hands around your gut unless you have tail grips, let her know when to get on and off, and rock the bike back and forth while straddling it to get used to the added weight.

She'll also be impressed by your know-how and consideration.

Long sleeve thermals, bottoms, and glove liners work great imo. Useful even when not riding. I personally dislike those riding mittens but Ive seen chink delivery guys using plastic bags.

Sorry no retarded drz faggots allowed
But no seriously it's been planned for 3 months now and we are renting a house so it's a little late to want to join.
We are gonna be riding at deals gap from the 19-22 if you wanna go and meet us around somewhere though.
