As a motorcycle instructor ,i ride motorcycles all day ,i work nearly every weekend, :nutter: but now im starting to go to shows with the missus rachyxx in our scorts , im thinking of selling my motorcycle :unsure: as all i do is ride it to work 6 miles ,id prob buy a rs2000 as well as my gti ,as rach has a st aswell ,and we like working on the cars, i got took off just before christmas and im thinking maybe the next one might be a big un, :unsure: i will still instruct but can use the schools bikes as i do a lot of big bike training so i can still ride, my dillemma is shall i sell with the summer coming ,training is one thing ,pleasure riding is another,but with the money i get for my bike i could purchase a rs as not interested in anything else :cheers:

If I was into bikes, and the thought of replacing a fast bike with a late escort RS2000 entered my mind.....I'f kick myself in the balls quick for being so ridiculous.

Keep the bike, replace the GTi with an RS if you have to own an RS, owning an RS and a GTI is pointless

Craig, have you ever had a job that was a hobby? It gets incredibly tedious after a while and you soon get bored of the hobby. This isnt a ridiculous thought at all Kev, I think you are probably thinking about doing the right thing.

BUT would you be able to stand lovely summer days and no bike to play on? i was like that for just one summer (bikeless) and i could of cried, its so depressing.

 

i was in a similar position, used the bike everyday for work (75mile round trip sun snow and rain) and i did get bored, untill a nice day sprung up and id go for a blast int he countryside and i was happy as larry again. its how and where you ride it not how often, different styles for different occasions. riding to works boring, screaming throught he backlanes on a hot day is where its at.

 

bikes are my first love im only into cars as i got fed up of getting wet then took it on as a hobby.

 

id keep the bike and one car (like i do now) personally. im praying for the sun to come out at the end of the month so i can get back out playing on it instead of being stuck in a car, even if i use it for work, its still a totally different (and always enjoyable) feeling when im out for a play and not a commute.

I can understand where craigs coming from ,but have been riding for 38yrs from the age of 16, had 1000cc sportsbikes so been there done it ,seen many mates killed or seriously injured ova the years :( ,as rach had bad accident when she was sixteen and i see how it affects her mentally as well as physically ,thats why she stopped riding a couple of years ago , :( i do it as a job cos it pays the bills ,i no the risks but dont bounce so well now ,yeh i would keep the two cars as son is 18 and doing lessons and he works on the cars with me and rach,yeh id put him on my insurance if i could , so he could come to the shows with us ,like he his this year anyway ,thanx for the comment trig :thumb: everybody to there opinion :cheers:

you and your bloody crotch rocket - your biast!

 

 

how else can a 20 yearold (19 at the time) go 0-top speed faster than most supercars, get more adrenalin rush's than putting your bits in a blender and always have a huge smile for such a small outlay, thats any age to be honest.

 

iv been on bikes since i was 7 past my test a week after my 17th and never looked back. i couldnt not have a bike im afraid.

 

non of those thrills can really be replicated in a car for so little outlay, jesus, an audi R8 couldnt keep up with me to 156mph and then he had to catch up to get past as id be miles ahead.

 

saying that id be just as happy on a slower harley davidson or something, i just find the hole experience so much more fun than sitting in a car. and its legal! (bar speeding of course)

Yeh but its not that im going to stop riding ,as still going to instruct and we ride the bikes to the speed limits whether it s 20mph or national speed limit 70mph ,and cant afford to speed anyway as DSA would take my licence to instruct off me so do have to be careful even when in my car lol ,but the bikes just sitting at home and i dont use it ,so it would make more sense to sell it ,and do and buy something that will get the use and for me to enjoy :cheers: :thumb:

I'm not into bikes at all to be honest, but if I were in your position, I'd probably keep it, sell the GTI and buy an RS2000. I don't really see too much point in having the GTI as well, so just buy the RS which looks like a GTI but is just quicker and has a nicer interior, then use that and you still have the bike should you feel the need to scratch the itch :thumb:

You know you'll sell your bike, and there will be a day you want to go out riding on it.

 

As said, no use of a GTi and an RS2000 imo. If you really want to get rid of the bike, sell the GTi, buy a cheap runner for work and theres a bit more dosh for RS2K.

 

Anyway, bit off-topic, but what bike is for sale?

 

I've been on the hunt for a decent R6, pref 2000 plate - 2004/5, if you know of any let me know bud :thumb:
