First time, not a DUI bike, 50cc because I didn't want to get the motorcycle license, impulse buy. Not smart because I live in a heckin winter state but what can ya do I'm an idiot.

I got gloves, a helmet and a jacket.

Good tips and stories. Thanks buddy.


I might sell it when winter gets here but for now I'm gonna risk the open road. Yeha pocket marbles what an idea

Well I live in a winter state too, man. Michigan, to be precise, which has some of the harshest salt.

I rode a moped and then went to motorcycles (fun fact, you can get a learner's permit ultra easy and ride an actual motorcycle on the road to 'learn' without much hassle) and I kept a winter beater. A car purely for driving in winter or very inclement weather. Do what I did. Use your license-free 50cc moped to get you back and forth to work during the non-winter seasons, and save up for a super cheap beater car. Get a reliable POS. A car you don't care about, but will never give up on you. Use that as your main mode of transportation until you get a proper motorbike and get your motorcycle license.

It's a common practice in winter states for motorcyclists. They keep an ultra beat up piece of shit car that is still serviceable and reliable for winter or really bad weather. These cars are cheap to maintain and insure. Mine is a '94 Buick Lesabre Limited which has had more than a few front end impacts ruining the aesthetic. Though mechanically the car is perfectly sound. My motorbike (before I wrecked it) used to be a 1983 Kawasaki KZ 550-LTD. A beautiful, simple bike.

Get money from work with your moped. Save up for a cheap but reliable beater car, then eventually get a cheap and simple classic motorcycle if you want. Trust me, it is so worth it. My KZ550 might have only had 56 horsepower. But it'd do 120 mph readily and had a lot more low down torque than people gave it credit for.

My end message is this - You may see it as a last resort deathtrap. But that moped could very well give you a love for motorcycling.

Keep your eyes open, your head on a swivel, and be defensively aggressive. It is always better to get sneered and get yelled at or get a ticket rather than fucking die under some asshole's tires. Remember that.

Well I'm on Medicare which has a 1 car policy for every subscriber, stupid but IDK if it counts bikes. Hopefully it doesn't so I can do what you suggest as that sounds like a good plan.

I've ridden it around a few times now, at first I was really nervous to take it out on the road even though I have plenty of experience driving a car but once I was out zooming around I loved it. Unsurpassed visibility, it's agile and way faster than I expected it to be (the engine shows any speed exceeding 45mph as redlined but I've gotten it to 60 without even trying; might be bad for the engine though).

Handlebars are a wee bit loose though. Makes me nervous. Gonna take it into a bike shop for that, don't want to fuck it up by trying to repair that myself.

Hey /vroom/,

So I've been saving money for a year now and living cheap at my parent's place with the general plan that "I'm going to go travelling when I feel ready." Well, I have around 10,000 saved and am feeling pretty ready to go out and do something!

So initially I thought of backpacking for a few months, but plane tickets would eat up most of my savings and then when it's over it's over, time to save money again.

Then I thought of two other things I'd like to do - living in an RV or a Sailboat.

I have years of experience with both RV camping and Boating, so I'm pretty confident on the technical side of things. I guess why I'm posting is just to get it out there - fuck it, I think I'm gonna drive down to the beach after christmas and trade my car for a sailboat and start following the coast!

I work online and don't need 24/7 internet access so long as I can connect every few days to upload documents and answer emails. That and I'm open to the random odd jobs on shore.

Anyone on 420chan ever done the liveaboard thing? What was your experience?

Thanks for sharing in my journey guys, it was great having a place to ramble on about what I was doing out here.

As for tips on sailing and boating, I highly recommend getting over the anxiety of taking the boat out onto the water. I've seen a lot of people in the past year and a half who bought boats only to sit in a slip or have it on a trailer in their yard for the whole process. And without ever being asked they're quick to give you all their excuses - "I have no time" or "it needs more work." Most of them will tell you all the parts it needs, and no joke it's usually cosmetic things. The truth is they're afraid to take the boat out and so they never do.

My boat was never in proper "seaworthy" condition by rich people's standards, but I went sailing hundreds of times anyways and only had the engine give me trouble once. Grab sailing for dummies and get on the water!

Taken as a larger example, I think a lot of people are afraid to travel or do something they want for similar reasons. They never have the time or money or they're sick. If you think like that you'll never get into an adventure.


Didn't run out of money, but that would certainly make it tough to sustain this. You've gotta have some basic income or getting hurt or sick or hungry could pose some serious threats to you. I have a decent amount of money saved up still, and will be using it to set up the next part of my life. I guess I just feel complete with this part of my life now, other than the fact that it's fun I have no reason to continue it. I learned to sail and had my fun. But I've got to admit, I'm ready for indoor plumbing, A/C, and a kitchen again! Plus, I've got lots of music projects I started out here that I'd like to tackle more seriously now and that's tough to do on a rocking boat with wind blowing rigging around.

Interesting fucking read, op. Definitely inspired by/jealous of your awesome adventures. I've met a lot of really cool travelers through my current job who have been an inspiration for me to do the same.

I've been living on my own and in serious relationships the whole time since getting out of highschool ten years ago and I have to say I have no desire now of living a traditional lifestyle. I'm a homeowner (primary on a co-loan), and have kept horses/goats, almost got married twice. I know what the every day life is like, and there's no consolation for me there. I spent the last year living alone, working, doing a bunch of psychedelics/empathogens, writing music, and having decent amounts of wild sex, and I quickly realized I don't care for that either.

I put in my one month notice with my landlords last week, I'm getting rid of/storing my furniture, going to spend the rest of the year couch surfing/living out of my car while I save money to travel. I should have my new car paid off and about $10,000 saved up by the end of this year. All expenses tallied this should be enough to travel for a minimum of six months cross country if I like it enough.

I'm not expecting much out of this besides a breath of fresh air from the hum drum of ordinary life. Good to read other people's stories. Like I said I've met a lot of travelers through my job and they're always the most interesting and likeable people that I come across.

>instead of taking a right turn and then making a u turn, I will now cut accross 5 lanes of traffic by cutting people off or by slowing to 5mph or a complete stop so I can """""SAFELY""""" cut across 5 lanes of traffic

I live in London and people can't make their mind up about which lane they're driving in. Much to the dismay of basically everyone with respect for the road and the need to get places, cyclists drive on the outside of the road. Motorcyclist ride inbetween lanes going both ways, so that when they get hit it's the real deal and car drivers just sort of hover from lane to lane and get angry when they nearly hit people.

Well, it's because it's impossible to choose the right lane to drive in in London or any big city, especially if you don't live there. You thought you'd be able to turn left from this lane? Nope. Time to try and change lanes last minute while no one's letting you in and a bus is pulling into your lane. Driving in London or any other city is just a mindfuck, you can't really blame the drivers.

I'm going to be moving out at the end of this year! I love my current vehicle but looking at it objectively it's gotta go. 200,000+ miles and could shit itself at any time.

I'm not exactly sure what I want, but I am pretty sure I want a compact hatch of some kind.

>Would like some ground clearance because I am used to a truck (but I realize that might be asking too much from a compact)
>No more then 5 years old (2012 or newer)
>$10,000(or $15,000 a little more if I am buying new)
>No KIA/Hyundai/GM
>No Prius (I like them, but I have enough trouble fitting in as it is.)

Or do you think my chances of finding a 5 year old Frontier for $10,000~ are less then 0%?

Don't worry the auto industry is heading for serious trouble again. When the loans default on all these 60k dollar trucks set 5 foot of the ground and the gas sucking wannabe SUV craze dies, small cars will be flying out the door at dealerships.

After thinking about it and talking to alot of people about it I decided to attempt to back back across at least as far as I can make it in europe.

I have some money saved up. Im using that to gear up and renew my pass ports and stuff and to buy my plane ticket. Still in a planning mode.

I'm 27 and have no idea what to do with my life. But I've known for ever i want to travel.
I got the opportunity to spend 6 months in europe in 2011.
My sister's husband is in the military so i got a super cheap plane ticket around $600 round trip. And stayed with her in Germany for a few weeks. Then we drove around eastern europe and bummed about for a bit with my family (mother, sister and brother in law) and and stayed in hostels. I then wanted to stay longer in the greece than they did so i stayed and met them back in DE latter. I went home with my mom after that back to FL.

Who on /vroom/ rides? I ride a 2015 Kawasaki Ninja 300 and am in love with the fun and the great gas mileage. If I put forth effort I can get 70 mpg on the machine. I've been riding since November 2015.

When 80 percent of the time I am the only person in my car it doesn't make sense to me to have all that extra room if all I'm transporting is myself.

Sup /vrooom/?

I want to buy a van but don't know much about them or the makes and models.

>6 cylinder preferred.
>Manual preferred as well.
>Can be light-duty as it will only carry maybe 1k lbs of cargo at the most.
>Isn't new and can be had for under 5k.
>Comes in a barebones model with maybe heat and air at the most.
>Is easy to fix when it inevitably breaks.

I'm willing to go with a mini-van but I don't know if you can remove the seats from them. I only need the drivers seat really. I'd kinda like an Econoline 150 if I could get it with one of the inline sixes. But I've also seen Odysseys and Quests pretty cheap too.

Also should I stop in Indianapolis or nah.
