I don't doubt your knowledge...


You just don't have to be such an uptight, holier than thou, douche noozle about it.

You might get your point accross better and people will be more willing to learn or listen. Or don't it's your decision.

I had a great impression about you from "the pace" thread, but since I started seeing your posts, I completely just didn't wanna listen to anything you have to say.

Also, set aside some money for some decent gear to go with that bike. Helmet, Jacket, gloves, boots, knee protection...it adds up quick, but it's a lot cheaper than skin grafts and way less painful. Good luck with everything though, motorcycling is a ton of fun if done properly!!

good point about the insurance. Be sure and estimate the total cost of buying a bike, not just the price tag. you're gonna need gear, insurance, most likely court fees at some point, and if you ride it much you'll be buying tires regularly. Since I've bought my bike, I've spent more on maintenance/tires than I have on payments.
