    What's a good motorcycle?i

    I recently got a job and I want a motorcycle over a car. So what's a good motorcycle? I was looking at a triump boneville.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I want a bike that has that old school look. I personally dislike them street bikes. You remember the ones that had that one circular headlight? I always wanted one like that. I'm thinking 10,000 plus lower.

    Indian, or Harley, that's if you wanna cruise. can't go wrong with a triumph either


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    I road a Harley but I didn't for the weight of the bike. There nice but I never cared for them as others have. Do you know how many miles a motorcycle can go before they bite the dust? I was wondering if they last long as a car. @dre that won't be available for the next 2,000 years

    What's wrong with your current vehicle?


    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    They can definitely last as long, or longer, than cars.

    I got a Honda Shadow 600. Absolutely love it as a learner bike, and as a bike in general. It's pretty forgiving, but still powerful enough when you want it. Check it out, the new ones are pretty damn sweet. Also sounds badass with straight pipes.

    I'm partial to Triumphs myself.
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    Get a Harley 883 or a V- star 650 or Honda shadow if it's your first bike.

    Well cars in general are more resilient when it comes to maintenance (or lack thereof) compared to a motorcycle.

    I have a victory 8-ball. Victory makes some good bikes imo. Yamaha, Victory both make good and affordable bikes, victory may a bit more expensive.

    I have slingshots on my bike which are pretty cool. but yea... I don't have an actual picture but this is pretty close, I have different foot rests on my bike htough and bars as well.

    The way you worded this is so contradictive of itself

    Perhaps in years, but not in milage. I've owned 3 cars that I've put more than 250,000 miles on. I've never seen a bike with 100,000 miles on it.
