This is what ive been thinking to get for years Dr650, maybe the SuperMotard one. [img]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_BvYgO_lUDjM/TRRG-yJLYxI/AAAAAAAACNU/blQXXVbo3cE/s1600/2011%2BSuzuki%2BDR650SE.png[/img] Or a KLR 650. But god damn the insurance and plate cost a shitload of money in quebec.

If you remove the sidecar on most models the steering will seem very twitchy, as in when you turn you will feel like your about to fall. However on the new retro model it will be a bit more ride-able without the sidecar.
This week I sold my ninja 250 for as much as I bought it for, put 400 dollars in and came out with a cbr 600rr. Good deal.
But... without Ninja how can you be Dr. McNinja?
Yeah but my doctor skills allowed me to pick the better deal.

Since Tuesday I've done about 400km. Half of that was done yesterday just cruising around the city. The addiction is well and truly set in. [quote][IMG]http://i.imgur.com/UdLN5.jpg[/IMG][/quote]

Saturday afternoon another mate joined us on our cruise and we went to an awesome lane way in a new housing estate. I stitched two stills together from a video we took. My mate is riding the Ninja 250 on the left and I'm on the right (other mate is filming). [img]http://i.imgur.com/KjGnG.jpg[/img]
Sounds like a fun ride, did you post the video somewhere?
I feel like my parents would let me get a bike if everyone in jersey didnt just swerve over 3 lanes without a blinker in their pink tanks some assdick pulled out like 2 feet in front of my friends dads front tire, but he knew the kid and said that if he ever pulled something like that again he would kick his fucking ass. If i ever move to upstate new york i think i would need to get a motorcycle, almost no traffic, and all the bars have biker discounts :buddy:
Huge pics So i'll just link them [URL]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9497245/Photo%20Jun%2006%2C%203%2021%2047%20PM%20%28HDR%29.jpeg[/URL] Old Ninja [URL]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9497245/Photo%20Jun%2019%2C%201%2032%2022%20PM.jpeg[/URL] New Cbr 600. It was dropped on the other side but it's not bad unless you're up close. I'm probably going to buy new fairings anyway so whats the big deal. It was a great buy.
Sexy colors on that CBR.
How does the CBR handle in comparison to the Ninja?
It's way heavier. You definitely can't throw it around like you could with the ninja. But the power is a HUGE difference. At least that's there to pull you out. Also I don't know if anyone can tell, but if you look at the front tire it's completely bald. Yeah... gotta replace that this week.
[QUOTE=jimhowl33t;30563094]Sounds like a fun ride, did you post the video somewhere?[/QUOTE] [url]http://youtu.be/nqJLKUAiHf4[/url] I stuffed up the last couple rises on that run because I was going too fast, but it was fun anyway. [editline]20th June 2011[/editline] 0:40 we start the run up.
Are there any 50cc mopeds that get any respect on the road/from friends? Was thinking of this? [img]http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~pattle/nacc/gallery/pp060628.jpg[/img]
Ok Facepunch, so I am buying a Motorcycle to ride from school and back in the States, something not too powerful, but something powerful enough that I can enjoy and chicks will find aesthetically pleasing. I have ridden a motorcycle before and I am permitted to operate one. I have been looking in to 250 Ninjas but I'm also open to other suggestions (Not only street-bikes of course) such as Enduros. The cost of the bike needs to be less than 3k Preferably. Insurance and safety gear of course have already been acquired. Also preferably the bike needs to fit two people, but one-person bikes are fine (I need one with room for a person to sit behind me, which of course might throw out the Enduro option.) It needs to be small too, 250 Ninja's size is almost exactly what I want, but in my area those are running for 5-8k new, Enduros are 4k.
Honda Bros 400 sell for cheap and have the same power output as a Ninja 250. Their engine also sounds nicer too.

[QUOTE=stupidass;30591577]That looks pretty sweet, but I can't find any online listings.. Are they rare? Yea.. I don't think those are imported/produced in the United States..[/QUOTE] Honda NT650 is the US version but with more power. Also Honda NT400. Try searching for Bros 650 also.

[IMG]http://i51.tinypic.com/nxl72p.jpg[/IMG] Zündapp is a good alternative too, and seeing as your living in England a Yamaha FS1 shouldn't be hard to find either. DKW is pretty good too but I don't think you can find any over there. The Fizzy is a bit less reliable and the cylinders and pistons need to replaced more (every 15/20 thousand Kilometres instead of 50 thousand) , but is a bit more modern and has a nicer footpegs and better brakes than the earlier Zundapps and Kreidlers, although Kreidler uses the same brakes on the modeds and motorcycles.

If you could stretch your budget you could get yourself a brand new bike.

I'm thinking about getting a Suzuki GSX250F Across. I've heard they're pretty reliable and do fairly well on the move, I also like the look of them and love the fact they've got a storage compartment big enough for most helmets. I've found a couple nearby going for AU$2500, one with 30k and the other 40k on the odo. Any opinions on them?
