Re: Idiot Thread !!!

Tire lube... LOL!!!! Any old "hot rodders" here?
.
Back before "armor-all", to get them "tars" all shiny like before the "cruise", we'd wipe the sidewalls down with brake fluid soaked rag. Wipe off excess, and voila! Then we learned (tires would simply start disintegrating... Jee? I wonder why?...).
.
Well, then we tried honey and water mix. Ok with that. Then... "armor-all" appeared on the scene... The stuff has silicone in it.... Silicone is slippery...
.
Anyone with a bike either knew (or expensively...) found out that a clean dry tire on a bike is a happy tire...
.
Fast forward....
.
Last year, a neighbor with a brand new $20k cruiser came by and asked about "appearance" or "detailing". I told him to not put anything on the sidewalls of the bike tires. Just scrub them down with some dish soap, rinse, scrub, etc. I told him.
.
He did not listen... Just had to armor-all them bad boys, and they looked real nice.. A week later he showed up - in his car...). Bad day, he said... He got as far as the main intersection in town and slid that bike right out from underneath him.
.


Other "idiot thread" stuff I've seen since getting my first bike in 1970? Lemme' see here...
  • Let's put the bike on it's center stand, fire it up, put it in gear and wipe the chain clean... Ever seen a shop rag get caught in the chain, sprocket and head to the drive sprocket? Fun to watch...
  • Don't like the exhaust can color? As in want that flat black "race look"? No problem!! Go get some Krylon flat black and have at it!! Forget to let it dry, fire it up and watch the exhaust catch fire.... One of my favorites!!!
  • Want that "race look" with fat tires? No problem! Gets some oversize fat tires and then be amazed when the tire won't clear the rear fork.... I loved that one....
  • Engine oil "dirty"? Wanna' clean up that crankcase, etc? Easy day! Drain the oil and fill it up with mineral spirits... Fire it up!!! Then go look for a replacement engine... I watched that one happen with a classic CB750, but was unable to put my beer down and intervene before it was too late... I left because I did not know whether to laugh or cry...
  • Want that race look? Get rid of that wuss control bar and buy some clip-ons and find out that in order turn at slow speeds, you need (a) a mall sized parking lot,or a ball peen hammer to dent the tank... Or the damn things are so far forward that you need monkey length arms to hold them...
  • My favorite (lately...) the "Just turned 19, and Daddy just co-signed for my nice new GZRX1600RRR "Annihilator", and I wanna' learn how to do "wheelies" and "stunts"... An outstanding career goal!! Get your idiot friends to video your results...
.
Never give monkeys tools or typewriters... LOL!!!

Re: Idiot Thread !!!

I would like to take this opportunity to reserve a spot here for Marc Marquez, and his team, in case he fails to win the title. Anyone who watched Phillip Island knows why!

Are you talking about when that spectator placed a skateboard ramp on the back end of the straight and he actually tried to ride over it?

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: Idiot Thread !!!

No, but that one sounds even better, is there any footage of that?

I think the FBI confiscated all the footage due to that police incident that went on just after ....something about keeping THAT officer anonymous in case of death threats.

Re: Idiot Thread !!!

I'd trust her with me .... gun ....

She actually got taught to shoot by the guy video taping that one. After a while she got pretty darn good actually. There are many vids of her shooting that put some of the guys I shoot with to shame =)
