I'd never get a bike- I've ridden them but just don't get the appeal of them.
I've got a car, just need to get a move on and take my test now- not that I'll be able to drive it much due to the costs and thanks to Mr Cameron and his conservative cronies that isnt likely to be any time soon :rolleyes:

What car do you have, and how much insurance will be (if you don't mind me asking..)?

Its being shared with my dad, Its a ford fiesta (zetec i think- maybe a 1.4?)
Quotes come in at about 3700 a year but its near enough the same as buying another worse car and getting insured
Just means that even once insured I'm hardly gonna be driving for atleast the first year

Wow, 3700 is a lot!

It'll cost me 2200 on a 2001 1.3 Fiesta, but that's with me as main driver, mum and step-dad as named drivers..
And then it would be 2400 on a 2001 Mondeo.. was looking just for the sake of looking :P

You lot are missing out. 125cc Insurance is 400 fully comp, great MPG and the same power-weight ratio as a 306 GTi :P alot more fun that sitting around in a box letting all the car do all the work.
Can jump traffic, use bus lanes etc. Win all around :P

Would be a lot easier if I just won the lottery tbh, then I wouldn't need the poster of an Aventador in my room :P

If I had a bike, how would I get my airsoft gear to and from sites? I want something that will fit my sniper, my M16, my mate's sniper, my mate's m4, my brother's g36 and lunch for us all in the boot :L.



I don't bother with lottery or anything, seems like a waste to me... 1 in 14million or something chance winning the jackpot and1 in 2 million of 5 numbers..

Yeah, bikes are too impractical, and the only one I like the look of is statistically the most stolen model of bike :D

It is a waste you're right, would be nice to win though ;)

I've managed to take a bass guitar, and a 150W amp to a gig before. Amp itself is 30KG, and 600mmx400mmx600mm :P

    See my YouTube channel for footage.
I've been thinking of getting a bike for ages but it'll still cost around 1500 to get going, CBT is about 100, a cheap bike is about 500 minimum, insurance is around 400, helmet is about 100, then there's fuel, road tax (I think there's a blanket charge of 40 for all bikes, but I could be wrong), a chain for locking it up etc etc.

Plus, as a student I just can't guarantee I'll always be able to pay for it. I'd also rather buy a bike new that'll last me upwards of 5 years if need be, before I get around to, or decide against doing my full practical test.

I bet they're great fun though. I'm sure I could manage all my own airsofting kit. I'd wear what I could wear and get a huge backpack for the rest. Sorted.

My mum used to have a Fiat Seicento which was roughly 8 years old, I looked at webuyanycar and they quoted it as being worth 475 and to insure me on it would still have cost 1700 just for third party, not even fire or theft added. It was only a 1.1L as well. It's literally daylight robbery.

I'd honestly rather pay protection money to gangsters than tax and such like to the government. At least then if I get f*cked over I know my protection racketeers will drown the dicks who f*cked me in a lake. In the "real world" I'm just stuck with the legal system which will only f*ck me over again.

It's honestly a joke. I can't believe we let it get to this.

You mean something like this ? :P

Last year just before Christmas:
And to keep it slightly on topic, i was happy after a month when the whiplash and bruises healed. Got the bike fully repaired with new parts, private medical care paid for, Courtesy bike, and 1200 compo :P

Note the bike is wedged underneath the car by about 2ft of the front suspension, and the wing mirror is bent because that's where my face hit XD

Did you take that photo straight afterwards? Like, you crashed, got up and took a photo before the people in the even had chance to react (other than their shocked faces)? Or did they get back in the car and pull a 'shocked' face for a photo?

Literally hit car, stand up, Take picture, stumble back to the ground XD Then phoned police etc.
Although he could't open the door so he was in there a little while longer while passenger got out.

I've got that system programmed into me. Anything that happens i'll try and take a pic. Usually ride with a video camera now for long journeys. Tend not to use it for short journeys as I'll just be recording myself giving the finger to women seeing me at the last minute on a junction, and i have to swerve around them. _ I get a bit road ragey sometimes. Once shouted my bollocks off at a guy who missed me by half a metre when he swerved across 3 lanes of a roundabout to get in a car park.

Bikes are really safe. Its the blind drivers that are the danger. :P


P.S. My crash was 100% his fault. I was legally filtering and he just did a U-turn without looking, warning or indication. Went straight into the side of him.
