Hello all. Crazy for old age and I bought such a thing.
Maybe it's a midlife crisis? Anyway, as someone would need a kidney you can already write :)

Is that your first bike ulthart ?

No, it is not my first. Once I had a Honda CBR 900 but I had an accident on it. Now again I was tempted to feel the freedom :) I hope that this time common sense will win and I will be able to enjoy it longer;)

I too have a mistress who will be 20 years old in november. Spent a fortune on the pretty things for her all her life ( I think the wife suspects ) and in return she still takes my breath away, and if I ask her nicely she will still do 150 mph.
Oh by the way my mistress is a honda cbr 600.
So Ulthart you look after yours and she will look after you and bear in mind all cars out there are trying to get you. ( R6....nice mistress ).

I see the understand perfectly :) motorcycle is not a whim, a motorcycle is a lifestyle. I had to choose Yamaha R1 yet, but I found that R6 enough. I greet and wish you a nice trip on your lover :)
Ps. Give some photos of your mistress CBR :)

Re : My new purchase :)

What kind of accident ? Over-power-noobie-solo-mode ? Car-helped ? Alcoholized-crossing-tree ? ...

That's the way I love and live bikes :

only crashing below 20 km/h (four times whose 2 stop standing !)

Only been on a bike a couple of times (as a passenger). Both times scared me enough to be a few pounds lighter at the end of the ride! I can see the appeal though as you can have super car performance for a fraction of the price.

For a super car with such performance rather never be me stand, the bike is much cheaper and also gives enough adrenaline :)

Always been addicted to speed both bike and car, you cant beat the rush of a screaming engine and the road being gobbled up under your front wheel. I dont use the bike as much as I used to, only to work and back if it is dry. Journey to work on a bus 2 hours on the train 1 hour on the bike 20 mins. Dont do any of that silly sh!t like wheelies any more (not intentionally anyway). For her birthday (bike) she is getting a nice new pair of sticky shoes front and back.
I do feel sorry for the wife as she knows she always comes second :cool:

Re : My new purchase :)

Speed with a car is very pathetic when you know speed with a bike, especially on road !
I just feel like in a bulldozer when I'm in a fast car : too heavy and too big for roads and pedestrians and need to burn a lot of fuel to get speed !
In a corner : on a bike, your body goes in the same direction as the corner. In a car, physics laws bring you to the opposite side ! So uncomfortable !...

A bike is fairer, maybe the last natural selector after Ebola, AIDS, ...
A car is a good weapon in France : only 2 or 3 years in jail if you kill someone while you, drunk, were racing on road !

RIZLOID, what brand of shoes ? I only use Dunlop since 10 years, having all the models (D205, D207, D208, Qualifier I & II, RS I). Now I have RS II !

Wheelies are for pro (My Sportbike Playground - Motorbike Action - YouTube), who are using bigger rear transmission crowns : so difficult with the genuine one !
It's hard enough to stay on 2 wheels and that's what we, my wife and I, love to do with 2 wheels :

I'm going to buy sliders for my middle age crisis !
