>inb4 summer fag
>inb4 premature midlife crisis
>inb4 rude condescending snark

I turned 30 in April and I've spent the past few months reassessing my life. Every time I've gone deep into introspection I've arrived to the same conclusion: What's stopping you? Fucking do it already. You could die tomorrow and then what? Everything you've ever said you wanted to accomplish evaporated the moment that bitch T-boned you @ 60 in a 35 because she was takin' a selfie.

Anyways, long story long I want a motorcycle. I've been debating between the Yamaha SR400, Honda CB1100EX, and the Triumph Bonneville T120 Black w/ graphite finish. To be honest I'm partial to the trumpet, but I know Japanese bikes are bullet proof. Seeing as this is going to be my first bike I don't want to have buyer’s remorse 6-12 months down the road. Is British engineering up to par when it comes to motorcycles? Or is Triumph just a name sake like Land Rover? Would this be a good starter bike? (Budget is between 14k) or should I get an inexpensive bike to start out on and then upgrade later?

Opinions/Criticisms; just say something. Thanks.

What exactly is fake about the glorious Ducati Monster? I bet you think GSXRs are thr pinnacle of manhood
>what exactly
its not fast in any arena except dumb stupid girls who know nothing about bikes going fast

also I do think gsxr's are the pinnacle of manliness
Don't get the SR400 shit's fucking gay.
>also I do think gsxr's are the pinnacle of manliness
Go figure a guy who likes GSXR trash talks other bikes thinking his taste in bike is superior to others.
It has to do with suspension and brake setup. As well as throttle sensitivity.

Your typical $3000 600cc Craiglist special might not even have abs let alone traction control.

Accidentally giving it too much gas while mid corner while you're leaned over will cause some minor rear wheel slide. On a big boy bike, the sudden regain of grip could cause a high side. Stickier and thicker tires with stiff suspension make regaining grip much more sudden and violent. This increases the chance of a high side. On a beginner bike with soft suspension and skinny tires, the transition from loss of grip to grip won't be as violent. This gives the rider more wiggle room when correcting.

The brakes on a super sport are also more like an on-off switch. It doesn't take much pressure to lock up your front wheels on super sport or race replica without abs. Beginners will be more likely to lose composure during emergency situations. They are more likely to slam the brakes without thinking of the tire limit.

And of course liter bikes can be scary at high rpm. A miss shift or over revved down shift can put you in that zone accidentally. On a beginner bike, this means your front wheel might pop up a bit. On a liter bike this means you loop the bike if you don't have the composure to correct.

There is no excuse. E85 is such a good fuel you should upgrade to high compression pistons. Especially if you have a turbo.

Why dont you believe in the corn? Sure it may need 42% more fuel at Wide Open Throttle. But it also has anti-detonation characteristics to compensate.

There is no excuse now. We are now in the golden coated era of high compression and high boost.

Ethanol in a "open" storage container LOOOOVES to absorb water despite the gasoline trying to reject it, leading to water pockets.
Those pockets got a fuckload of bacterial growth, slush that around enough and you got trouble.
Same way diesel collects diesel bug funnily enough.
i dont buy it, water is soluble in alcohol. it wouldn't make pockets, it would dilute the alcohol
If I still lived in AZ I would, E85 was half the cost of shitty 91 octane ACN gas

Generally anything made with "recently dead" organic matter tends to have shit that'll grow in it.

I drive a 90s Corolla, anything not bolted down and most things that are rattle.
Grey plastic everywhere
Every single fucking interior panel is is loose or coming off in my 03

I'm probably going to look at this this weekend, think I can just scrape the money together, but I'm still going to try and talk him down some. Looks babied, vin is clean. Looks in great shape. Am I making a mistake or should I go for it?


Also general Craigslist/car buying advice thread.
at the end of the day its your money. is the fear of your car breaking down so bad that you would put off potential joy? if you dont drive a manual yet are you so afraid that you would hider yourself from becoming a better driver? do you already have a daily?

cant give you the answer for everything in your life, work it out yourself
Looks like a respray from all that orange peel. Mileage is high as fuck and it has electrical problems, a/c doesn't work.

The usual stuff, Engine is solid but everything else fell apart especially electrical stuff, quality control was not very good with my car, Not sure if it was because of the somewhat hot climate but nonetheless almost every piece of the interior had broken/cracked/unglued from heat.
But damn it do I miss that i5 engine sound

35c plus outside? Unless I'm mistaken temps inside the car can go up to 85-90c if sun is shining during such temps.
If it's a newer model they often have UV reflected and polarized glass to prevent glare and heat.

The 5cyl symphony is indeed eargasmic.
Bought an 855 for $25 with little to no rust, the only problem was that the turbo was worn, new housing and it was up and rolling again.

This should be easy for those that have driven it.
Hint: The 2.0L-2.3L versions from the past

[spoiler]Fuck /g/ for not allowing spoilers[/spoiler]
It was a 01 S60 T5, had the eargasmic sounds, sadly couldn't live with it since there was a problem somehwere in which thrbcar couldn't generate the ideal HP, sometimes itbwould lose boost, I couldn't experience it to the fullest but if I could rewind time I would've gone with the 850 or older S70 T5s.
Datsun 200sx 1978/1980. My mom had one. Called it bitchin Betty.
That is..... 1957-1962 Chrysler. Don't think it's a Newport. That dash with pushbutton drive is too easy.

As another Engineer, I'm highly skeptical if I read a full engineering report and don't find a spelling mistake somewhere. A good engineer shouldn't spend his valuable time learning perfect spelling and grammar.
And this is why technical writers exist. People who literally just proofread engineer's reports before they get published or approved.
Kinda looks like an Aztec

if the roads and skies are clear, you have no excuse to be doing below the minimum IN THE LEFT LANE YOU NIGGER
The law not written in the books, it's written in the unspoken rules of your local police department.

And sometimes, that is actually written in the books (ie: shall not issue a fine for 10% or less over the limit)

But still only a literal autist thinks the written law matters in anything but a court case in which you try to get out of consequences. From day to day, in deciding who goes to jail and who pays a fine, it's up the cops. If you have a problem with this ask for speed cameras. And then when you have a problem with those speed cameras allowing excess of 10%, ask for stricter cameras because MUH LIMIT. and then when people demand higher limits because of your strict cameras, tell them to shut up, and hope you don't get lynched. and when people demand insurance get its hands out of speeding tickets because they're getting fined twice, once for a couple hundred, and again by geico for a thousand, and geico says no because they're making insane profits and you say "just go the speed LIMIT", turn tail and run. and make sure your ass is covered by bulletproof pants.

Sheep genes are the worst, mate.

Why did everybody ditch the inline 6 when it has so many benefits?
>have one 2.5-3L I6 engine
>use it for everything from high end sports cars and SUVs (turbos optional) to mid sized cars
>can be built on the same assembly lines as I4s or I3s, use that for your smaller cars
Even without bringing up the mechanical advantages of the design, it makes manufacturing way easier/cheaper than with a V6.
>muh length
Meanwhile Volvo made one shorter than their previous I5, and mounted it transversely in their FWDs.

That thing is completely oversquare by motorcycle standards, hence the good packaging. They do scream, but they're a bitch to handle. Gimme an R1200 all day.

>Muh passion

>Muh godmachine
Meanwhile, a V6 is always better.
>because engineers are too lazy to take the challenge of fitting an I6 into an engine bay
If I design an engine bay to fit an I6, it could fit a V12 with some squeezing. It would also fit a V6 with better weight distribution, better centre of gravity and better handling. It's not that I don't want the "challenge" of making an I6 engine bay (there is none), it's just that that very same engine bay, with all of the compromises that need to be made length-wise, would be a better place for a V6. Or, you know, just put a proper V8 in there. It'll still be lighter than an I6 after all.

>I work in an industry
So you're either an engineer, manager or accountant. The latter two groups are the ones making econoboxes with shitty V6 engines. The first group is what gave us the Laverda V6 and Bennelli Sei.
V6 is overweight shit
i6 is also better for having less internal losses
V6 is lighter tho
Also has less bearings and thus less friction
V6 is always heavier to a comparable i6
S55 weighs 205kg with all accessories such as cooling and plumbing, ecoboost V6 weighs 203kg dry.
Nissan GTR V6 weighs 276kg with all accessories.

I spend about $15 per month washing my car once a week.

Im getting more and more interested in early 90s toyotas that run on obd1 readers.
Are there any good readers for those? And what are the big differences in the obd1 vs obd2 readers
We had one anon who had it but it got totaled
They're pretty slow but have a small turning radius. It's more of a work truck so fun wasn't really in mind when they made it. They have around 50-70hp from the factory depending on the generation.
