Motorcycle / Car assosiation
« on: July 24, 2009, 04:08:20 pm »
With what car would you compare a motorcycle to describe it to somebody who knows nothing but would like to have an understanding of the character or heart of a specific bike bike?

BMW - perhaps a BMW X3-5 SUV?
KTM - Jeep?
KLR -  Landrover ot tractor?... ;D
lets add

Reverting back to you - question (fokken confusing)

1.) Hierdie bike fokof teen n kak spoed- net soos my kar :thumleft:

Het jy n probleem - indien nie - gaan 'ape shit' of maak jou eie kak :thumleft:



 ??? Did I miss something? I couldn't see the comparison either. :patch:

KTM 990 --- Hummer


That's a bit rude! I rather like the KTM 990, and would rate it with the LandCruiser 70 Station Wagon. The Hummer is a piece of faecal bacteria.


Nope, disagree

Lets look at my reasoning.

It's Farking big.
Rather heavy.
Flashy as hell. (sticks out like a sore thumb)
Sucks juice.
Costs an arm and a leg.
Very capable off road.
What's wrong with that? ;D

Something like that.

In a moment of madness, I bought American tank (Dodge Journey). I think it's second to the Hummer in fuel consumption.

BTW, the agents assured me it can get 10.3L/100 if you drive nicely.
Well so far my best is around 16.5......go figure. >:(

now I've really jacked this oke's thread. >:D
