The Wandering Hunter

the favourite bike bonus

brose_sfr

yeah...

 

I've been on my Chopper exclusively for a couple months.

 

when the DLC released, I bought a clubhouse and a Bobber. since then the bobber has been my "favorite" despite me never riding it.

 

on my alts I set my favorite before purchasing a clubhouse and it seems to work fine.

There's no real reason it shouldn't just be a manual setting you select from within the interaction (or whatever it's called) menu.

My favourite bike is western nightblade, which i bought first no matter which i ride the most. My second character's fav bike is haka drag, which i bought first after bikers update.My second character doesnt have Mc clubhouse,yet.

How many bikes do you own on these characters and does it switch for you if you try?My first character has full clubhouse and 2nd 8 bikes i think and Yes i tried a lot :D Edited by RileyTheRock

This never bothered me, I'll take whatever bike because I obviously bought the bikes for a reason.

This would all be fixed if Rockstar simply grew a brain and let this bonus be applied when riding any bike, at this time there is more disadvantages than advantages to riding bikes for most situations, you cannot even do big jumps without your guy either falling off or even dieing on impact. You're more exposed on motorcycles and whenever bullets start flying the NPC drivers around you go full retard and start doing stupid things in a ridiculous fashion that often leads them cutting you off and causing you to wreck.

 

I rage so hard when a car cuts me off during a shootout on the road, they make me wreck and my pursuers most times gun me down before my guy even gets back on his feet. Due to these disadvantages these perks should apply when riding any bike, and not just the one you been riding the most.

OK, just manage to change my Hakucho Drag to Shotaro as favorite. This is just to list of what I've done, NOT a sure way to change favorite.

  • Start online sessions with Shotaro stand by (10+ sessions)
  • Riding exclusively for a total about 8-10 hours in freeroam. (Didn't keep track of time until later, using the Vehicle Stats. Didn't track miles traveled at all)
  • Did couple of rooftop rumble (Shotaro as starter vehicle)
  • Did a lot of Sightseers using bike to rack up riding time.
  • Move vehicle slot to 1st in the 1st (topmost) property garage (so it's easier to navigate Mechanic/Assistant menu).
  • Use a lots of office/assistant PV spawner.
  • Use Mechanic couples of time instead of interaction menu to send the bike. (this is the last actions I did before exiting the game before the fav. bike changes the next time I played)
  • Last session (before fav.) played for about 3 hours straight (the most I've played of all the sessions, but riding time is about 1+ hour for that playtime).

Other things to note:

  • Doesn't own MC.
  • Shotaro is my 3rd bike to be favorite (Drag's 2nd, Bati's 1st)
  • Owned 5 properties (with garages).
  • Swapped new office (not relevant, but just to inform)
  • Playing Invite only lobby all the time, but the last one is public.

The actions that I suspect to trigger the feature either calling Mechanic bunch of times, or playing long freeroam session. But that's just me.

 

EDIT: I'm on PC btw.

I'm glad they fixed it. Favorite bike changed from the Shotaro, to the Chimera, to the Sanctus.

Yeah, call the bike via mechanic? I'll give that a try

This feature whilst amazing, yet again shows R* up for their terrible lack of implementation. Having a favourite is never about using it the most. It's a stupid mechanic and completely inefficient. You should be able to set your favourite bike by either moving it into slot one in the MC Clubhouse, or as an option on the MC Clubhouse board etc. And the fact that someone has gone direct to R* and asked them exactly what needs to be done to change the favourite one, yet R* have acted all cagey shows that they themselves do not have a single clue, and are probably still scratching their heads wondering what went wrong.

 

I've been carrying out several tests to try and change the favourite. I've called it via my mechanic, repeatedly via the MC delivery service, using the interaction personal vehicle delivery service, moving it to slot one, but none of them work. If it's simply down to just riding it more than your current favourite, then that is ridiculous. No one will ever bother buying any future released bikes because you'll never be able to get the bonus for them.

What you did?

 

Mine is still avarus since day one after I bought the clubhouse, it was the first bike to drive in, today I would prefer Sanctus but have no clue how to do this.

 

Some things that I never tested but would make sense to work: time doing MC contracts, ressuplies or maybe kill other players while riding.

I've done a ton of MC missions and Contact missions since my last post, using the bike I want to be my favourite exclusively, and it still hasn't changed to my favourite. Add into that all the riding around I've been doing, it seems there is no way to make a bike become your favourite. It would appear those who have managed to change it have got lucky, as there is clearly no set mechanic to do this. Utterly stupid, R*.

No. I can assure you that he's either trolling, or just got lucky. There are tons of people who, no matter what they do, can not change their favourite bike.

If I cared I'd try moving clubhouses, I think that might do something. So feel free.

 

So glad mine's the Gargoyle and not something I hate.

I had a strange experience with this the other day. Since Day 1 of the biker update I have had the stupid Maibatsu Sanchez as my favourite bike (only rode it for say 30 mins

maximum over the game), just so happened it was first bike into the clubhouse.

 

Then yesterday I ran as MC President using the Wolfsbane bike for approx 3 hours or so and left online and came back on sometime letter and when I was cycling through

bikes in MC President it showed the Wolfsbane as my favourite and it sits on Slot 6 in the clubhouse.

 

I have one character to try and change the favourite bike on so I'm going to try the tips above for a day or so and see if it changes the favourite bike perk.

How long has it been since the Shotaro was released? I've been riding mine since then like I was surgically attched to it and the stupid Vortex is STILL my favorite bike.

 

Pissing me off because I kind of liked riding the Vortex but I won't allow myself to until my favorite bike switches to the Shotaro. But it's been months now. Outlook is not promising.

I've won more races on my Gargoyle than any other bike, so throw that in the mix.

 

Really though Support should have given us an answer by now.

Huh. I mentioned that possibility a long time ago. Forgot about it. The Vortex is the ONLY bike I've actually won races with (I don't race much anymore).

Protip: adding '/s' to the end of a post signifies it as being sarcasm :p

 

Edit: seems like a complete waste at the moment and it would be nice if R* would address the issue and tell us what the hell is going on (even if they are unsure of what is going on).

Then my final guess is that it relates to doing MC activities, such as riding in convoy or using the road captain P2P race ability, on a bike. But it's still a wild-ass guess.

Lol wild ass guesses don't really help. This is frustrating, R*. Sounds like such a great concept but worthless to me if it only works on one of my slowest motorcycles.

why don't you just sell the active favorite bike to change it to another one?

after that you just buy it again.

bikes are not that expensive.

(this obviously doesn't work with exclusive bikes like the sanctus.)

But which will it change to? Maybe only have one other bike (your choice) in the clubhouse when you do it?
