Are you able to screenshot your stats screen for me please? 

 

Also, do you mean she didn't own a clubhouse or another motorcycle?  Ultimately it doesn't matter, as you don't have to own either. The game just goes by what bike you have used (sat on) the most.

She has a couple bikes but she rides the Bati the most I just thought if i don't have an MC I shouldn't get the bonus, never mind then at least it works for her...

 

I was happy to take a screenshot but the website is f*cked up it shows me a blank profile for some reason, everything on 0 as if I just bought the game or just got banned lol.. I can take a screenshot from within the game in a bit tho if that helps. Here's the blank mess in any case:

EDIT: Here you go

For context, I rode only the Hak Drag for about 2 weeks when it came out, the shotaro more than that, the FCR1000 custom more than that, and the Bati 801 WAY, WAY, WAAAAAAAAY more than any other vehicle in the game. Broken piece of sh*t bonus...

Cheers @wizooord

 

Interesting stats. I can see you've ridden motorcycles a ton! Or the Bati.

 

During this time you have ridden the Bati, have you then rode different bikes between? Either ones found on the street, ones during sourcing missions, ones during MC sale missions and any other bike / oppressor you may own?

 

I'm trying to determine if by riding other bikes between, it resets trying to get your desired bike to be the favourite.  Just this week when I got the Deathbike to be my new favourite, I avoided all other bikes, even backing out of sell or resupply missions which would involve me using another bike.  I maintained this for 7x solid days or 168 hours of using nothing but the Deathbike. Other vehicles are fine but all other motorcycles and Oppressors are definite no no's.

 

First experiment:

Get yourself into an invite only session, head to the airport, and use bands to put your bike in reverse circles (not forward) and do this for about an hour and report back.

The Bati is roughly half the time of all other bikes combined.

I've been keeping an eye on this thread for quite a while and have tried the approach of avoiding any other bike (or even CAR) for a couple of months.

I've also tried the method of going to sleep while GTA was running and my character riding my bike with W (pc master race sadly, no rubber bands for me) pressed all night inside the circle of that eagle statue for about 3-4 days in a row around the same time.

I will try reversing for an hour or more and report back but I doubt it will work.

 

Let me get this straight, you actually finally got the deathbike to be your fav with the bonus working? -Edit: I just read your post about it, neat! Gratz!

 

Perhaps I should try some more to AFK on it at night, could you detail where did you do circles? And was it in reverse? Or did you just sat on it all night?

The reverse thing was mainly a test to see if it breaks whatever bug you are having.  It's a long shot but worth a try.

 

With my latest switch to the Deathbike, I basically left my Xbox running every night for about a week.  I did forward-circles at the airport in a solo session.  I wrapped a band around my accelerator trigger button (not too tight, just enough so my bike wouldn't go too fast as this can send you off course and crash) and a band around the direction stick to ensure I made tight circles.

 

I left this over night and checked each morning to see if it worked.  Also, during the day, I would use nothing but the Deathbike (when I wasn't at work lol) and also did various missions and activities in which I could use my Deathbike.

 

It finally worked after roughly 168 hours of solid use.  I certainly had used the MKII a lot, and it made sense because I used it for all my grinding.

 

It's easy to underestimate how much you have used your previous bike.  Although I do suspect yours may be bugged in some way, I'm confident the bug can be broken, and it may just take a lot of AFK circling and constant usage.

 

Just ensure you do not touch any other type of bike under any circumstances lol!

 

Please report back on how you get on matey!
