Thread: Motorbikes

  1. #1


    I have recently been considering the possibility of taking motorbike lessons, as I would like to get me a motorcycle.
    Whilst I have a car, driving this isn't really much fun, whereas I have heard when driving a bike, this is really enjoyable, so much so that longer routes to a destination are sought out to prolong the experience.
    Anyway are there any people on here who ride a motorbike, and would they like to share their experience of this.
    Also what steps exactly does someone need to take to get a full licence?

    RE taking longer routes.
    Yesterday I decided to ride the bike to work. In the car I get on the M3 pootle down it at 70mph and come off the other end - a 45 mile journey of boredom and danger (falling asleep at the wheel). On the bike I take back roads all the way and giggle nervously for an hour scaring myself stupid at every available opportunity. It's amazing.
    Once you tried a bike though, it's very frustrating sitting in traffic jams when driving the car again....

    Oh and if you are feeling flush, you could always get one like this. In the same time a golf GTi has just reached 60mph, this is doing 200mph.

    not if you want to turn corners...

    anyway, i went into a motorbike shop last weekend and now have fallen in love with the ktm supermoto. it's on my 'to do' list.

    Heheh. That's the campest bike I have ever seen. 300mph without a rider maybe. The lack of fairing will be an issue at anything above 150.

    It's got four wheels - how can anyone call it a bike ... anything above 90 mph is an issue without fairing for more than a few minutes.

    Haha Haha i know, made me laugh when i first saw it though...

    I've not got a bike YET.. so i have the pleasure of being a pillion on my dad's bikes. He's got a BMW GS 1100 which we drove down to Le Mans last year on and a rather nifty Honda CBR 1100 Bluebird xx which scares the hell out of me

    I can't wait till i get a bike, hoping to get one next year ^ ^

    It maybe a little stupid but I have been really inspired to drive a motorbike in the past few months. It started with watching ?A Long Way Around?; and then heightened with reading ?The Motorcycle Diaries? and ?Jupiter?s Travels? (haven?t finished yet) ? must look at getting something simple... perhaps?
