new member in da house!!!

new rider in Hamilton Ontario!

holding out for the r3

hands down
. period
:eek:

why?

dont ask me why

you should know. Its going to have balls

BIG BALLS

my friends say, "Yo MotoGP, y dont you just buy a 250 ninja or a 300 ninja, than just buy an r6 down the road."

or the people saying just buy the **** r6

are you joking...
of course I want the friggin r6

but to start riding on... You just know,
this r3
is going to have some HUGE
FREAKIN
BALLS

for a 300 lol

and the 250 looks sexy but tiny. And I know that sounds semi contradictory but you have to understand. I hate a fat looking sport bike.

can't wait for some more info, CANT WAIT TO GET THIS BETWEEN MY LEGS!!

R3 or BUST

unless ur going to ride the R3 for an extended period of time, why wait?

As your friend says, If ur using this bike as a stepping stone to an R6, it would be smarter in the end to just buy a cheap used bike and save for a R6, instead of dropping 5-7k (guesstimating) on a brand new temporary bike, when you can get a mint used R6 for about the same price.

But again that is just my opinion.

I was going to get a honda cbr250rr, but as awsome as they are, they're prehistoric right now and almost all of them have been dropped, us3d and abused.

Learners here in australia are 3 yrs and 3 months MINIMUM! So getting a reliable first bike is a must for me.
@MotoGP, cant you get an r6 or even an r1 straight after getting your license? As crazy at it sounds to get an r1 for your first bike i dont get why wait for the r3 if you can get an older bike then get an r6 after like 6 months or so, unless of course you're goin to keep it for a long time.

that is very true, something to definitely consider, might as well really consider it now instead of after the R3 is bought

Once you buy a used bike you won't get much return when you do move up to a bigger bike. If you get the r3 first, then when you do buy the r6 later you'll get a greater return on the r3 when you sell it. I'm just not sure the money difference is quite as pronounced as some people here make it out to be.

I agree with you both.
Toy bus I do want that 600.
But I'm definitely not ready tho. Ive never been on anything with two wheels. Ever...

Unless it had pedals.
And any Yzf-R revs so high its slightly frightening with this powerband craziness

This 300 can be made faster with some after market parts And a chunk of change lol


Plus something about owning the first r3 ...

Its like an R-series baby
(excluding the r125, r15, and the r25;P, let get real)

Itssss juuuuuuuuust big enough to mean business and keep insurance down...


But **** yeah, if I was going used, ID pick up a ninja300. All black

Cuz really,

All black ninja

Enough said

Than pickup an r 6 New afterwards..

But
Still

R3 or Bust
If I wanted a ninja Id be on the road already you know?

Don't be a squid, and don't take advice from squids.

Seriously...

You guys might be really nice people, but suggesting the man get an R1 as his first bike is about as malicious as you can get over the internet.

BE SAFE, PLEASE USE YOUR BRAINS OR ASK SOMEONE ELSE IF YOU MAY BORROW THEIRS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the site, R3 will be a fantastic first bike. Seriously 250s/300s are some of the most fun you can have on a motorbike. Take it to the track with your squiddish friends and watch as you decimate them with corner speed as they've never evolved past the right wrist...

These are wise words. I have actually started looking for tracks around me. But its a little intimidating. The last thing I want is to make a fool of myself you know? Going to a track on a potentially stock 300 with people who go all the time. I'd feel like I might be getting in the way of the bigger bikes.

Might be expensive to get the track to myself lol I should find out how much is just for **** nd get some people to go in on it. Might be fun. Renting it out for period of time

I just-have one question now



Whats a squid? Lol

its all over this site and all over the web.

SQUID:
A young motorcyclist who overestimates his abilities, boasts of his riding skills when in reality he has none. Squid bikes are usually decorated with chrome and various anodized bits. Rear tyres are too wide for their own good, swingarm extended. Really slow in the corners, and sudden bursts of acceleration when a straight appears. Squids wear no protection, deeming themselves invincible. This fact compounds intself with the fact that they engage in 'extreem riding'--performing wheelies and stoppies in public areas. Squids wreck alot. Derived from 'squirly kid'

"We were suddenly passed by a chromed out R1 and then when we rounded the bend, we saw the squid wrapped around a tree, he'd probably be alive if he was wearing a helmet. "

Direct answer is Stupid Quick Underdressed Imminently Dead.

I created a topic just for new rider to read if they feel the need for a 600cc or 1000cc for their first bike:

well

I know alot of squids than... More vents on their helmets than protection

I've never had that mentality... I value my life enough to know that I know nothing of being on two wheels...

hence why I need track time, not street time ...

squids just have nothing to live for, if they do have kids, hopefully they change their squid ways and don't end up dying as a squid

the term squid ranges from someone who wears no gear - to someone who stunt rides every where they go for attention.

Honestly I don't know why people care so much about people who wears no gear. Its like telling someone how to raise their kids. Or how to live their life. Let them be, if they crash they crash, if they die they die, this is called life. People die from dumber things than riding a motorcycle with no gear...

Yeah, I plan to track too eventually. The closes track to me is 3 hours away so that would be fun. Would eventually take all their advance course and track school classes.

welcome aboard @toy bus, the reason many motorcyclists care is because we're a minority and a minority that is heavily scrutinised. We want to continue to make out own choices, but squids make that very difficult on us. See lawmakers look at fatalities from bike accidents and decide well everyone should wear a helmet (thats cool mind you) but its when we start getting into things like everyone should wear hi-vis for protection. We're not far from outright outlawing of motorbikes if we dont stick together.

The lawmakers don't know who was wearing gear, who was a squid or not... Plus often times their behavior gives the rest of us a bad name. I saw a squid cut off a taxi and then turn around and verbally abuse the cabbie/kicked his car when the cabbie honked at him and gave the finger.

I don't know about you but I don't want people like that representing me.

i get what your saying.

but in my opinion wearing gear or not, should not matter to those it does not effect. For those riders who ride like a self entitled dumbass, its a different story, and i agree that they should be frowned upon.

But just because you don't ride everywhere you go in leathers/textiles, it really should not matter to anyone but the rider themselves.

You're right, but again its because of the minority nature of our culture. Most of it is good natured, like sharing riding tips and tricks, we're just giving our suggestions on what is, in fairness, actuality safer in the event you chuck it up the road.

But again as I said above, there is an odd correlation between tank tops, flip flops, shorts and reckless riding of motorcycles. I just can't stand when riders cannot evolve past their right wrist. We're a heavily scrutinised group, there is no need to exacerbate that IMO.
