Is your bike more expensive than Your daily driver?

Just curious who has more money invested in their bike than they do in their daily driver. I know I do although thats not saying much considering I drive a 1998 s-10 LOL. Lets us know yes or no and maybe some your bike is your daily driver/main automobile.

I have an 07 silverado 4x4 ext cab black with black n polished 20's... I love it but is sure as heck isn't my daily driver right now... so I matched the RR against my 91 bmw and the bike definitely wins



Currently have an XR650L thumper

RIP 06 600RR
Looking for another 600RR next year...

I had to say no. I either drive the 02 Altima or the 07 Murano to work... however if its even somewhat nice out... the RR is the main transportation and the murano is mainly the wife's anyways haha.

I said no because my daily driver is a heavily modified WRX with about $25k in mods. Although. . I work from home so technically I don't have a daily driver. LOL.

Modifying a bike is so much cheaper then modifying a car. . .the WRX will probably be the last car I mod.

You won't see much from the pics. . .I kept everything on the exterior very low key. All the expense went into mostly suspension and engine mods and lots of dyno time to tune the car. The only thing you can see from the outside are the Recaro SRD seats, SSR Comp rims, exhaust, and TWR racing calipers/rotors. I'll see if I can dig up some pics though.

After riding a sportbike, cars are rapidly becoming gh3y. If it's not icy/salty out I'm on the bike.

Sh*t if I lived in the Southwest or out West, I'd have some [email protected] car just to haul people and sh*t around in.

I used to have a daily driven Supra turbo (JZA80) and a few other toys :)

Start tracking your bike and you'll think riding your bike on the street is gay..

07 Colorado Z71 loaded is about twice what my 07 RR is worth.
the truck is stock, and the bike has about $3k in mods, not including safety gear.
so $24k truck and a $12k bike.

Nah, my 335 has a good bit of $$$ invested in it, plus base price on the car ittself, would have to be a crazy bike to be more then that, doubt I could ever make a bike over that.

Even if my truck were worth less than the bike the 30 gallon tank full o' diesel would make up the difference.
