2. As slow as you ride it doesn't matter which oil you use
I ride within my limits so I don't crash, unlike some people. If I wanted to ride faster than your old , I would...but then again I try not to do stupid like total a brand new bike. I tend to spend money on things like staying out of debt and retirement savings, as opposed to buying brand new recreational vehicles and totaling them.



3. Is your credit good enough to borrow $1,000?
Unlike you I don't need to use credit cards for everything, so I wouldn't need a loan, since I am currently debt free. Perhaps if you used some of that money you are blowing on bike payments and full coverage insurance on a sport bike into riding lessons, you wouldn't wipe out in turns

Anyways... all this talk of spending twice as much on oil changes for a vehicle that statistically will get sold within the next five years has convinced me to switch from conventional to synthetic.

It takes a lot of repetition to get anything through that thick skull of yours.

1. You can't ride faster than me even in your dreams.
2. You're too cheap to buy a new bike (mine wasn't new at the time)
3. I have bikes, car, home, and retirement. Only loan I pay is a mortgage.

1. My credit card bills are paid in full every month plus I get benefits and my university gets benefits when I use them.
2. I pay cash for my bikes. Lack of skill had nothing to do with that crash.
3. Come ride with us tomorrow and try to see for yourself

Its is an investment when you pay cash for a brand new bike. In fact that's how Ive bought all my bikes. Buy,ride until ready to buy something else, sell, then trade up with some cash on it. So yeah, I have 8k in equity in this bike. That = investment and I'm not about to put cheap Rottella in it. You can put that Jew oil in your Jew bike all you want. I'll spring for the better stuff.

You wouldn't be the first rider to crash during parade laps at GSS or be over your head

FYI, I set those rides up for folks that have never done a track day and were interested, plus parade laps would be right up your alley since they're free. Setting those rides up is called giving back.

We all know you're too cheap to do a track day

I actually genuinely have no interest. I used to race MX as a teen and I've already got enough metal body parts for this lifetime. Any riding you are doing on the street that is within reason(AKA not riding like you are at the track) I can keep up with.

Dude I'm not riding all the way out there to do some lame parade laps. Have fun with that...and no it has nothing to do with me being afraid of not being able to pass the parade lap champion on his 1000rr with my SV.

I saw the line for the parade lap last year. I have no desire to putt around at 25mph with 2000 of my closest friends on the track at the same time.

There is no parade lap like taking one by yourself at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with mini's, golf carts, and navasota police chiefs trying to stop you.
