Missed it, was to busy getting screwed at the drive-thru. Congrats TJ!
Hahahah, VFRW is like crack.............I know you will be back. Congratulation and don't forget to post the pictures before this peeps calling you a liar.
LOL! Leo Getz. Thats hysterical.. Please oh please have recently died hair. "Can I have a Gun?!?! Can I?!? Can I!?? Please oh please!" Too funny.
I rather liked reading this thread. Its kinda nice to see a new rider go from nil, to VFR cherry pop, in a single thread. Scuba's got a good point there.
Who was it that said "pixorgtfo" so much? was it V4Bear?
Well, grats to the OP.
Congrats on the new to you bike! So now you have a bike and a project to get your hands dirty. Has anyone asked for pictures yet?..........NO?
Ok then post up some pics dude.
It's kinda like a VFR STREETFIGHTER right now. lol These are from the ad when I bought the bike. I'll take better pics tomorrow.
I know it is only a matter of time until I do it again......just trying to stall for time with much care.
Nice find......would have been all over it myself.
Gravity is a bitch.
Gratz on the VFR! Nice lookin, I dig it.
I've only been riding for a short time now on my first bike (86 vfr700) and haven't dropped it yet and now you all have made me nervous.............damn. I don't wanna be cursedout:
Of the many "types" of riders (of motorcycles excluding Harleys, which are driven) two of the types are those who have been down and those who are going down.
The dudes that have not been down can be recognized easily. They are the fastest folks on the fastest bikes, that get the most mileage and know exactly where the best deal on Jo-jo's can be had. Further recognition can sometime be observed especially if they are wearing tank tops, baggies and flipflops while texting.
The other dudes usually are recognized by thier ability to fix shit.
@experience780 @Badbilly I have been riding my vfr 800 and getting better everyday, I personally don't believe DROPPING your bike is a DEFINITE! Just cause I haven't dropped my bike, does not mean I ride like a DUMBASS. lol I ride very carefully and I know my limits and I never got my bike with the intention to ride it to the EXTREME. I think their might be 3 TYPES of riders.
Extreme riding explains all those drops at red lights and driveways.
Guess this means we also need a fourth kind of rider
If the fourth kind of rider is one who never drops a bike. I wanna grow up to be one of those.
"Kickstand side down."
As to "beliefs", my country right of wrong most of the time as long as there are no Republicans in the White House, a supreme being wno is not a Republican, rock and roll is here to stay and a couple of other things that are best left to one's imagination.
@tinkerinWstuff I think me being 6'3" 230 saves me from those undersized person mistakes. LOL I had a couple WOBBLY moments, but since I can easily flat foot my bike and support the weight, a "drop" was never close to happening. Well you guys are the experts, but I hope I never drop my bike. I never said it won't happen, I'm just not the type of person to truly BELIEVE I HAVE TO FAIL! That's the mindset you guys are selling me.
I definitely ride within my limits, I am new and I know that, not to say I don't push them a little just to learn and get better. It helps I guess that I treat my bike with absolute (borderline ocd) care and am very picky where I park.
Nuff said .....ride within your limit and use your head. I mean the big head not the other one Ride safe ATGATT
We got four types covered sort of. Anybody up for making it an even ten?
Harleydoods and anyone who is never going to drop a bike are welcome to add to the list but should be prepared to discover the errors in thier prognostications.
Ok, so we've got those that have, those that will, those that might, those that wont, those that can't, those that should, those that have almost, those that wont until they do and those that might but probably wont until they do...................
THIS guy has it figured out!
