Bikes are volatile in all ways.

It's an internship where I get paid $15 an hour, I have no prior work experience, and aside from the abuse, it's not a bad job. I definitely won't be working there forever, but if I can get a year of real work experience, and make enough money to buy a welder, and also buy a few 190E pieces, I'm ok with it.

Geez, everyone else around here can throw around Engrish like its their native tongue, I make a Japanese businessman smelling his own fart seat joke and apparently I'm a world class junkie. How does this work?

Not sure if I should wash my car right now because it's dirty and this is the best time to do it..... But it's also due for a wax and that takes longer

So razy

The funny thing is you're right. An entry level $2500 bike holds its value as there are always people getting into the sport or seeking cheap transport who are buying. A rare Ducati which appeals to a small collectors audience and would go for tons more money in a strong economy loses its value like an unmarried Amish virgin who just did a hardcore bukkake movie for free distribution over xhamster.com.

Goddammit I was drinking water when I read that

And yeah, you can get a 250, ride it for a year, lay it down at low speeds and still sell it for what you paid

hmm, the electric race bike had the same power to weight ratio as a 250cc motorcycle. Meh, that's barely any power.
