Finally got my bike

Its nothing special but its my first one and a decent bike to learn on anyway here it is. It's a 1985 yamaha srx250. Needs a little work before i can ride it, but this will be perfect to learn on till I can get the yamaha I REALLY want.





let me know what you think

Get an exhaust for it, that rusty stuff brings it down.


Im betting an R1 is his idea of future death machine.

I love the r1's, but i'm just gonna stick with a 600 for my next bike i'm not worried about going ungodly fast on a bike.

This is the next bike I want


YZF-r6

First bike I ever rode was an R6, about threw me off when I popped the clutch and it pulled the front wheel. ..

Congrats. Good to hear you're starting out small and working up.

My R1 runs 9s stock... The new R6s can also run 9s if they're strapped down. Both are fast. The R6 will do over 160 and the R1 is governed at 184.

I want a bike. I just don't know what to start on.

I also have to decide where to sell myself for money because I'm poor.

Start small and old. Chances of laying down your first bike is high. You can find a decent 250 ninja opr something like it for around 400-1k. I got mine in a trade so it didn't cost me a dime

i might get something small also, like a 250, then after a while getting used to it and confident, im going straight hyabusa. its like the 03/04 cobra of sport bikes. go big, or go home kinda deal. i like the fact i can run 10's with 0 mods.

my buddy(username182) is going to get a bike on his next tax returns. hes going to take the course, then ill just learn from him.

Correct. And it has the highest top speed of any showroom bike. It's also longer... Which means it doesn't turn as good... Which is one of the reasons I got an R1. Besides the R1 being so sexy.

The busa is too much bike for me, I like the yamaha bikes b/c of the size and handling.

Yea, hyabusas are super fast but..r1's are also fast, handle better, and are waaaaaay sexier imo
