    I dropped 6k on upgrades out the pocket as soon as it got home :mjlol: i kinda want to make it a stunt bike. 883 is only a couple grand from base streetbob. 883 is too small for brehs well im 6'2 but its kinda short.

    Clutch cable broke wtf:mad:
    New one won't be in until next week. New adjustable rear sets will be in tomorrow. Taking this opportunity to remove the tank etc and give it a thorough look over( to the best of my limited abilities and knowledge)

    Lmao Nah none of that

    Ninja 250 is the given answer but my therapist took the same course I’m gonna take and she has a 500cc and said the 250 and 500 has a minimal distinction between each other at best. The CBR 500cc been a favorite of mine too, but I been looking at GSXRs too. If I can find a GSXR 500cc I might rock with it.

    EDIT: There is no GSXR500; just GS500s. So for me it’s the CBR500, Ninja 500, or the GS500

    I took a long ass ride this weekend after months of nothing that long. And about halfway through I was ready to go home lol I wore my gear. I guess that added to my fatigue. I haven't been wearing gear all thru the summer

    Brehs..... I was all ready to buy a 2017 Honda CBR1000RR next spring............

    until I rode this beast, 2014 Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC ABS, 184HP, 400lbs V4 engine.

    This bike took my soul for one night, we got it in on trade at my work. Grabbed the keys and rode it for the evening, finished up around 1130pm when I got done with these pics. The power at any rpm is mind-blowing, tight racebike-like riding position, 3 riding modes, carbon bit here and there, the list goes on. This one had a Leo Vince slip-on which growled something fierce at the slightest blip of the throttle, sounding like a muscle car at idle. I'm sold on it as my next bike, however I am keeping my 2 Honda sportsbikes though. Friends and Dealers I have consulted with have told me, the Aprilia reliability will be not like the longstanding Honda, italian bikes are finicky and a bit costly.

    Also aprilia hasn't been producing large inventories as long as the other manufacturers. I've been seeing crazy deals on L7 gsx r1000s. Got me rubbing my hands together.


    Also wouldn't mind an older repsol with that Marc Marquez colorway:banderas:
