just checked your local craiglist and damn bro, pickings look slim.

Just try to keep it under 60hp and under $2500. Standard is def the way to go, at least starting out, imo.

in my experience no dealership will give you a deal like a private sale can. a honda rebel 500 (aka brand new cheap cruiser shitbike) is like $6000 or something, new. And used bikes from dealerships are even shittier deals

You're looking in the right direction. SV650, FZ6, CB600F, and >GS500(F) are all good starter baiks imo, though there are pretty wide differences between all the models I just listed. Basically anything that is ~600cc, is in decent condition, is <$2500 and isn't a straight-up sportbike should be fine. If it counts for anything, I started out on a 95 yamaha seca ii with about 40hp and had plenty of fun until I got hit by a truck

Is it practical to commute nearly every day on a motorcycle?

Insurance is like 1/3rd of owning a car but will it amount to the same with buying tires and brake pads all the time?

Evil_kitten

Learn the maintenance of it and itll save you money. Also treating it well and keeping up on maintenance will keep it on the road till your tired of it and want something new.

5mileys
5mileys

Yes and no.
Depends on how far you commute, what's the weather normally like, do you carry stuff often, etc.
I have a truck, but I normally take a bike, like 95% of the time.
I have a job where I sometimes have to carry shit, so I need a 4 wheeled vehicle. And if it's a day where I'm just like fuck this weather, I aint dealing with it, I'll take the truck.
But it can be done.

cum2soon

I haven't owned a car in years, but I live somewhere with no snow and not much rain.
You can get sport touring tires that last 5x as long as nice sticky tires if you don't plan on hooning very hard, same for brake pads I'd imagine although I don't actually know.

new chain and maybe new maybe sprockets every year
comes out cheaper than most cars imo, but it still takes more time and effort on your end with maintenance doing shit like taking care of your chain and oil changes

The thing with reliable shitboxes is that you can dog the fuck out of them, get cheap tires and oil changes and they'll be fine. Bikes in general are just more work to take care of

I live in the PNW and so far nothing has done a better job at lubing my chains than chainsaw bar & chain lube. Sounds strange, but a quart is around 10 bucks and it works great. Doesn't get washed off extremely quickly like most other lubes do. Only downside is it's kinda messy (first time riding after lubing will fling it around) and your bike will smell like a forest.

Yeah, the maintenance interval is why I'm not sure. Feels like I'm constantly wrenching on my bike, I practically never need to maintain or repair my late 90's shitbox.

I had a job where I needed tools, now I moved and work in an office. Commute is short and it doesn't snow often. Unfortunately I've moved to a place that requires emissions and inspections and my bike is a jury-rigged piece of shit with a loud muffler, so I've just been commuting in a car.

I only use MY car to commute to work. My girl is up my butt all the time so we just use her car for everything else. So I'm thinking to just ditch my car and use my motorcycle to commute to work, unless it's really shitty out and I can bum a ride.

I'm concerned I'll be lazy and not actually want to ride in moderately shitty weather more often then I think I'll be, or I won't actually save any money if I'm running shittons of miles on my bike.

I use bicycle chain lube, since it's like 1/5th the price of motorcycle chain lube.

It's also good for cables and other things that WD-40 gets too sticky to for.

Say, is automotive grease good for lubing a chain? I got a shitton of it, so I've been sslathering everything with it lately.

Deadlyinx
Deadlyinx

Ok, sounds like you could do it.
Try and find something you won't need to wrench on often.
And honestly the basic shit isn't bad, easier than a car imo.
And you probably will ride in moderately shitty weather less often, but maybe not.
I very much have the option to take an enclosed vehicle, but I still take a bike in 30* weather.
But I have two, one for bad days, one for good days.

So every time I drop my bike, it becomes very hard to start and when it does start, it runs like absolute shit, stalls constantly, sometimes the throttle will kill the engine, ect.

To fix it, I drain the carb bowl and it rapidly improves from there.

It's pretty tedious when I take it in the woods and draining the carb bowl all the time seems kinda bad for the environment.

Is this really normal? I don't seem to remember doing all this when I had a dirt bike. If not how do I fix it?

eGremlin

I've never had this issue, but my bike has screws on the bowls just to drain them, so maybe it's common.
Idk, talking out my ass here, but it's a thought.

I derived some rough numbers from government motorcycle fatality statistics and calculated an average full-time commuter motorcyclist has a 0.06% chance of being killed in a motorcycle accident per year, assuming an 15,000 miles a year.

So within 40 years of commuting solely on a motorcycle your odds of dying are about 2.4%, on average.

So the statistics include pillions, drunk biker dudes that don't wear helmets, squids, ect, and also include miles from fairweather riders that only ride when it's super nice out on barely trafficked roads and old retiree coupless going the speed limit on highways on their Honda Goldwings for thousands of miles, so, it's a rough average.

Thought I'd share.

I got this at a good price from a mate who was moving stateside from the UK. 8000 miles on the clock for 5.5k

Honestly, it's a bit weird to get used to, not nearly as heavy as everyone said it feels (That could be me though, having come off heavier ADV bikes), but the power is addictive on this and it sounds amazing with the Remus exhaust system.

I found handling was a bit weird and required a heavier touch to get it into some corners than what I'm used to but overall fantastic bike.

I hope you haven't ridden many dirt-bikes, or street bikes, because it's kinda porky and underpowered for a dirt-bike and it's slow and it vibrates unpleasantly for a street bike.

They're very reliable though, if you care about that sort of thing.

Really easy.

With the 'road test' it helps to have a small motorcycle. That figure-8 for the DMW test is literally impossible on an unbalanced sportbike or cruiser that has narrow front wheel travel left and right.

Practice in a parking lot, do some hard stops, some swoopy turns, be sure to not let of the throttlle in the middle of a turn, ect.

Easy-peasy.

They won't fail you for making mistakes or speeding a little. They want to see you're in control of the bike by the END of the 2 hours.

Mazda, because they would make an interesting road bike with their lightweight, naturally aspirated philosophy in building cars. A Wankel rotary bike would be amazing too.

I'd also love to see a motorcycle with a small German turbodiesel engine. BMW already has their own stuff, Mercedes would want to make it aggressive as hell, which leaves VAG: preferably Skoda. They seem like the kind of company who would make an interesting and engaging motorcycle out of something dull and torquey with 100MPG.

I actually like the two sportbikes from GTA 4. You can float wheelies on them and do rolling burnouts, whereas the bikes in GTA 5 can only power wheelie and do stationary burnouts. The physics in 4 make hooning easier, but yeah the bikes look and sound unrealistic.

Hey guys, need some advice. I fucking love riding and recently it's been 35f but dry and sun out. I wear a lot of layers so that's fine but damn my fingers feel like they're going to fall off. Do those silk gloves/inliners you put on under your gloves make a noticeable difference? If some I'm going to the store right now to get them. Also I live in the Southeast so it's only this cold for a little while. Don't need full blown heated gear.

So do they work well?

Heated grips are a godsend. If you don't have those, double up on gloves. I used a fleece gloves underneath my winter gloves and that was fine up to 30f weather. You could try handguards as well, since the majority of the heat transfer is due to riding wind.

Possible oil leak
Looks pretty clean to me TBHonest.

It's a Honda 4. It doesn't have a leak, you just haven't washed it recently.

Seriously, if you are talking about how it seeps a little oil from the head gasket, that's normal for pretty much all Honda 4-cylinder bikes through the seventies and eighties. Just wash monthly.

At it's age, expect it to be drippy from the shifter seal and the countershaft seal (where the chain drive comes out) I wouldn't bother to fix either.

Fork seals need redoing
Again... um... looks clean... but it it's been sitting.
