^^ holy crap man, 27,000 miles in 8 months.. the only other person I know that has put that many miles in such a short amount of time is my father-in-law,he used to put ~15000 miles a month when he was hauling 5th wheels across the country.. When he sold his f350 he had almost 500,000 miles and he only owned the truck for about 3 years..

I would try Craigslist (free), he can keep relisting it until it sells... or maybe trade it in to get a new Hyundai! He might get a good deal..

Wow! Yeah thats some severe mileage. I do normally 14k a year.

On my "toy" car (which the Coupe will be) I normally dont see anymore than 3000. Just depends how nice the weather is and if Im around to drive it or chose to over riding the motorcycle.

+1...I drive about 14k/yr on the bimmer. Once my jeeps done, it'll see about 3-5k/yr, & once I get the ReSpect GenCoupe, it'll see about 3-5k/yr. So, the mileage on the BMW should drop once I start driving these other cars. The 65' Mustang is going up for sale - too many toys LoL...

+1....My uncle was killed on one when I was young & my parents shied me away from them. Once in my teens, I almost ran someone over on 2 seperate occasions on bikes, just that hard to see in blind spots, etc. I decided to stay away from street bikes because I don't trust the other drivers on the road. But, give me a dirt bike or 4 wheeler & I'll tear shit up & catch air doing it...:shifting:

I crashed a yahmaha 450 Dirt Bike through a wired Fence a year and a half ago and have some permamnent scars on my left shin from it. One of the scariest things I ever did but I would have rather crashed into that than the Bike trailer that I dodged just in time which is why I hit the fence.

Yeah, but that was your fault, no one else to blame. What if instead a car that weighed 10 times you & your bike ran you over? If I wreck my 450R, it's because I fucked up, not someone else. That's the difference IMO. Sorry to hear about your accident bro & glad to know your ok except for some scars. I've got plenty of them from riding over the years. Now I'm almost 40, I don't ride near as much or near as hard as I used to.


Oh yeah, Audio sorry about chewing your thread to pieces bro. 50k is alot of miles in that short of time, but like they said, it's a Honda, just gettin' brokin' in...LoL

bam, what the hell, I just noticed that you said you had to put a new engine in your Evo like right off the bat. What's up with that?

Yeah I love my bike man. '07 GSXR 750. Here is the gixxer and my parking lot stunter Honda 50.



Bikes are dangerous but if you're scared you definitely shouldnt get on one. Its the best way to get hurt is to ride scared. I say a prayer everytime I get on mine before I ride that God would keep me safe and away from harm. The big man comes through everytime.

Ive lost friends/riding buddies but riding a bike is like nothing else. Its relaxing. Out cruising on a nice summer day/night doesnt compare to ANYTHING with a car. I trust god to bring me home safely and dont let worry and fear go through my head but instead enjoy my time riding.

Big guys ride big guy bikes.... ZX-14 or Hayabusa. I know a dude pushing 350 who rides a Busa. Heck i know a guy who when he first started riding weighed in about 330 and rode and R6. It was pretty darn funny actually. The bike looked TINY. lol

Sorry to hear about your Uncle buddy.

Other drivers 98% of the time are why Motorcyclists are injured/killed. Im very defensive when I ride. I also have a bright freakin HID headlight that if you cant see in the day or night you're BLIND. If someone hits me they better hope they do a good job because if I get up you better believe you're catching a beat down on the side of the road.

Wow, that's crazy miles! I also have a bike, a 2006 Suzuki SV1000. The comment that Jarod made about riding scared is very true. I was in an accident once because another driver didn't see me, and cut me off. I ended up rear ending him cuz he came from the left lane into my lane and hit the brakes so he could make a right turn. That was towards the end of the season, so I stayed off till the next spring, but once the weather warmed up, I got the itch bad and had to get back on. I still love riding, and during the summer months, my car hardly ever gets used. Between April and November last summer, my car only saw 600 miles, while my motorcycle saw almost 3k, and this year it should be even higher cuz I have a longer commute to work now.
