We need a good laugh ....
I stole this from an inmate on ADVrider , advice about getting into motorcycles :
Don't do it, dude!!! DON'T DO IT !!!!!!!
Your are gonna ruin your life. Trust me , I know. Speaking from experience here! See the gray hair? See the wrinkles? See the vacuous zombie-like eyes? You're not immune to it either. Try to resist the two-wheeled vortex of irresponsibility. I see this decision; whether or not to purchase this XT225, as the pivotal moment in your young life so far. Don't blow it, dude!
Stick to more manageable, sensible endeavors like recreational drugs and unprotected sex. Bikes are dangerous! Listen to your parents! "Yamaha" literally translates to "implement of certain human demise" in Japanese. Really, look it up. My 87 year old Dad swears that the influx of Japanese bikes decades ago was their way to slowly torture him, and America, for "kicking their asses in that war." Those nefarious Japanese manufacturers spreading their own brand of two-wheeled misery, destruction, torture and mayhem ---- and all in the name of fun and sport! Think about the timing. Insidious, isn't it? Once again, Americans: the last to figure out anything. It is exactly what happens to us, and probably deservedly so, when we are all addled like Jethro on the Beverly Hillbillies ---- because we are consumed by those wicked wicked two-wheeled conveyences. Kid, right now there are 6 other people reading this thread and nodding their tired old balding heads in zombie-like agreement with what I'm desperately trying to explain to you. But you'll not garner a response from them, because I'm the only one that is relatively sober enough to type at this hour --- and I fucking care. You are choosing a perilous path, my young friend. PERILOUS!
Invest your money in a nice solid piece of transportation like a Yugo or old Ford Falcon. Your not even listening, are you? Hey pay attention, this is life changing stuff. Go ahead then, do what you want. You ask a question but you don't want to hear the sensible answer. I know you're not even listening to the voice of reason. You ain't even got a bike yet and you are already hooked. Already gone. Another one bites the dust. Que lastima! Que lastima, indeed.
It'll be just like damned BB gun you tormented your parents for, finally got, and then almost put your eye out with. Kids, won't listen to anybody. You think I'm making this stuff up?
Go ahead. Suit yourself. FINE! When you take that retrospective look back in 40 years at your miserable, wretched life of degradation and debauchery and shattered dreams and an empty life of two-wheeled sacrifice ------ don't say I didn't try to warm you! Don't say that I didn't fire one low, and over the bow. This is a warning shot my friend. Heed the wisdom and truth of your elders.
And to think that it all started with an XT225! How fucking embarassing! Really? Everyone on this site knows that the XT225 is just a "gateway bike" into harder and stronger machines ---- except you. Can't ya just be happy with a mountain bike or maybe a good pair of hiking boots, or even a skateboard? Yeah, that's it, get a skateboard. Guys your age love skateboards, don't they? They look safe to me. Jesus kid, get addicted to porn or gambling or meth or something with some redeeming value ---- not motorcycles. NOT MOTORCYCLES!!!! AAARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!
