Discuss motorcycles, dirt bike, atv etc.

 No.18056

All my mates at trade school have motorcycles and after seeing my cousins new husqvarna I really want one.
I have my eyes on a royal enfield classic/bullet but a husqvarna like my cousin's is my second option.

 No.18069

Opinions on cars for beginners? I have been thinking of buying a beetle.

 No.18150

Don't get the bullet, get one of the ones with the new 650cc engine. It's leaps and bounds ahead of the 500cc on the old bikes. The 500ccs are basically entirely responsible for the shitty reputation that RE currently has. The 650 however is great.

>>18069
Both new and old beetles are terrible. Old ones are rust bucket deathtraps and the new ones are unreliable turds that are very difficult to work on.

 No.18152

>>18150
How bad does it get? and how bad is RE's reputation? I'm new to the world of bikes so I don't know.
Also most of the ones I see on the street are classic 350 and that's the one I'm likely to get.

 No.18153

Is there a kind of motor bike that isn't for loud obnoxious assholes?

 No.18168

Anyone here watch motorsports? Any type of racing discipline is welcomed.

I'm currently watching stock car, open wheel, and some endurance series from time to time.

You will never be as cool as japanese Bōsōzoku

 No.18256

>>18208
I didn't know there were also female bosozoku, that's pretty cool
But what do these Japanese gangs do?
>Bōsōzoku first started as groups of returning World War II veterans. Many veterans were having a hard time readjusting to society after the panic of the war, and the most extreme turned to alternative methods to fuel their excitement. Many turned to custom car making and gang-like activities on city streets to gain an adrenaline fix. They gained many inspirations from American greaser culture and imported western films. This would explain the many similarities between old American biker culture and the bōsōzoku characteristics.[3] Many younger individuals began to see this style of life as very appealing, especially marginalized individuals looking for change. Eventually, these youngsters took over the identity, becoming the foundation for the modern bōsōzoku.[4]
>Typical accessories to this uniform are hachimaki, surgical masks, and patches displaying the Japanese Imperial Flag

>>18256
Are they japanazis?

 No.18262

>>18153
yeah, in the Midwest we casually call them Ricers

 No.18362

>>18261
>>18256
They used to be pretty big but after police smashed them and the fad dying out due to economic issues they tend to be more rare nowadays.
At the start they were heavy into bushido but after a point it bacame an aesthetic and any semblance of ideology got lost, turning into a generic counter culture

 No.20472

motorcycles are dangerous as fuck
