So my cousin is giving me a ride home in his Passat and he hit a ditch last night and bashed his oil pan. The thing is absolutely pissing oil and we've got about 350 miles to go on it. [editline]20th August 2017[/editline] And the part of the pan that got holed is behind the plastic bullshit plate that's supposed to protect the oil pan, so we've gotta find sockets to get this thing out.

Visited TWO car shows today! I just bought a Nikon d7000 with 4 lenses off my friend last night. Decided to play with it today, essentially winging it because I had never really used a DSLR before. All I can say is using photo mode for hours and hours in Gran Turismo and Assetto Corsa definitely helped me build a basic understanding of photography. That and just me being to adapt to the manual nature of the camera and lenses helped me get some decent shots. Let me know what I can improve on, I mostly shot these with a 50mm and 17-35mm zoom lens. Not to highjack things and turn this in to a photography thread.

Bought a 2dr '74 Scamp for 3k. 360ci 2brl factory disc brakes.Gonna see how it goes I really wanna throw my 440 into it.Parting out the New Yorker.
Going to be around $250 for the full motorcycle endorsement. Plus gear cost. I'm pretty stoked. I'll probably buy a bike in September and practice a bit before winter. Have to wait till April to get into the class however
Wow shit's expensive were you are I paid 20 for the basic rider course through IDOT in illinois. buying a bike/practicing before the class is definitely a good idea especially if they let you bring your own bike to the class.
Luckily, the military covers the price of the basic and advanced MSF rider courses, as well as giving us priority in the class signups. There's really no reason not to get a motorcycle endorsement in the military, your command is forced to let you miss work for it and it's free ninety-nine.
$20 for a bike riding course? It costs about €900 in the Netherlands. 12 hours driving on the road, a theoretical exam and a practical exam. How can you even propely educate someone about just the rules for $20?

How

Then there's another $1000 in two years when we want to get our full licenses.
It cost me a full nothing to get my motorcycle license. Because I work at a bike dealership that has a msf course. America.
holy hell 3200$ for a restricted license? Did it come with a blowjob as well? cause foreplay is important before the fucking

Drained the oil, JB-welded it, slapped some duct tape on top of that because why not, and the car survived just fine.

They go through basic and advanced skills. And the bike which is big part.
I spent $250 to do an advanced course once, and I get to return to the class whenever I want for free for life if I ever feel I need to brush up on anything. I think its like an extra $5 to get a motorcycle endorsement here. don't remember exactly because I get 8 year licenses and am on year 7

This weekend I loaded up my F250, borrowed a trailer, and headed out to the black hills for some dirtbiking [t]https://i.imgur.com/xn0EBvU.jpg[/t] [t]https://i.imgur.com/DhVasIN.jpg[/t] [t]https://i.imgur.com/xjDo3M1.jpg[/t] My 86 XL250R performed flawlessly this year, I took the wheels off and cleaned out the brakes ahead of time this year. As for the truck, the heater core exploded 5 miles out, coolant all over the interior. I pulled over and blocked both heater core hoses with a spare hitch pin. There was a 10% grade and a few 8% grades coming out of rapid city, and with the camper and trailer, my guesstimation was that it weighed around 9000lbs. It was about as fun as youd think. We decided to camp abut a mile up an ATV trail, complete with small logs, ruts, and lots of rocks. It pulled up that no problem. On the way back, the low beam wiring went out, so I drove about 2 hours with high beams, and it averaged around 11mpg. I fucking love driving this thing. It takes about 10 minutes to get up to speed, and would be certain death if I had to stop quickly, but I was still passing newer pickups at 75mph all day. It may be low geared, but itll sit at 3k rpms for hours with no complaint. I love sitting in the plush 80s bench seat, I love looking down the hood at the road, I love jamming gears, I love giving it the beans up a hill and making a bunch of nasty N/A diesel noises. I love taking it on roadtrips, maybe even more than the vic. [t]https://i.imgur.com/vLRCIUc.jpg[/t]
things that make you go bwuuuuhhhh. Be me in the parking lot of advance and see two chuckle fucks both of which were pushing their truck (no one working the brakes or ya know steering.....) 15 foot from the set of ramps they have so they can get a running start to push it up the ramps. the only words I could get to come out of my mouth is "JESUS FUCK NO WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!" ended up using the winch to drag it up on the ramps so tweedle dum and tweedle dee didn't kill themselves or others
[img]http://i.imgur.com/36zpKPqm.jpg[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/UXKFPt3m.jpg[/img] So Scamp made it home the 360 burns ALOT of oil but thats fine not keeping it in there.
I suddenly kinda want to get a motorcycle license and some cheap beater bike. going for motorcycle rides with my dad would be pretty fun. What are some good starter bikes (not scooters), up to 260cc (learner permit limitations) so I could get some sort of idea of the type of shit I could have? preferably touring/sport touring. [editline]a[/editline] well some that are up to 660cc are allowed [url]https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/licences/licence-and-permit-types/motorcycle-licence-and-learner-permit/approved-motorcycles-for-novice-riders[/url]
If you live in a somewhat rural area, Id really suggest a dual sport 250. Its still as anemic as any other 250 on the roads, perhaps even more, but you wont get bored of it as long as youve got a place to have fun off road. My xl250 only had about 20 horsepower 30 years ago, and thats really all it needs off road. I just wish there were more places around my house to ride.
AU's learner permit list is weird "yeah you can have bikes up to 260CC oh and also ducati monsters KTM dukes/525EXC's and triumph street triples" uhhhhh whut?
While I'm not advocating joe rocket the new highschool hotshot to go buy an R1 as his first bike, limiting riders by cc has always ticked me off. I feel it is even more dangerous having a bike that can barely cruise at a highway speed limit than just having a reasonably fast bike. Although rare, I've had a situation where I needed to hard throttle my way out of a bad situation, e.g. I was stopped alone at an intersection, car coming up behind me, my light turns green, car doesn't seem to want to fucking slow down, I gun it and he slams his brakes at the last possible second (was probably texting) both actions barely saving me from being destroyed. Similar thing happened on the highway as well by someone crossing three lanes of traffic while driving like a mong 20mph over the speed limit behind me, but he clearly didn't see me across [i]three fucking lanes of traffic while I was passing a car[/i]. I had to gun it into the median brake down lane while he panic swerved right up my ass beside me, then drove off again like a looney.
