Eh, seems kind of stupid to me. I personally wouldn't want to meet or ride with any of the women who'd go there just for the chance of getting a boob job.

I can differentiate between the type of motorcyclist that would gravitate to such an event and myself. I don't think the non-riding public can and so I will be lumped in with them when ever the thought of "motorcycle" comes to their mind. Sucks to be me.

I had trouble trying to figure out which forum this would fit in. Too bad there's not a Mondo MO forum.

Good for him maybe. Probably gets the trashier easier to sleep with girls to come too

Not my tastes but oh well.

Statistics from the article:

"If there's 12 thousand people, and there's three thousand girls, that's six thousand boobs, you've got sixe thousand to one odds divided by two boobs per contestant to win a six thousand dollar breast augmentation which is three thousand dollars per boob," says Roades. "You're not gonna get those odds at the boats"

I would say it's a good idea for the people that like it, and I guess it's a bad idea for those that don't like it.

Default Shameless- I'm not so sure

Only in America can you tie in store bought boobs and bikes. Shameless- maybe. Marketing mastermind- possibly. Capitalism and a free marketplace make this country better than any other. Good for him coming up with a hook. Will it work? I doubt it. Most women will laugh and ignore it. The ones that attend would have probably gone anyway. So, it may net a 10% increase in womens attendance. He predicted 3000 women- 300 extras @ $12 a ticket covers better than half of your new boobs. Wow- that's marketing.

Shameless to say the least. Frankly I'm more annoyed with the HD marketing tie-in with the Ultimate Fighting crap. To me that horseshirt is the epitome of a sick society - utterly gratuitous violence, in the extreme and virtually without any sense of sportsmanship or rules, for the entertainment of an audience. At a tidy profit, I'm sure. Maybe Victory can sponsor a dog fighting series next.

People love violence. They watch football for that crushing hit. They watch auto racing for the spectacular crashes. They love the UFC and boxing for the classic knockouts. UFC is HUGE with the younger crowd these days. Us old farts aren't into it so much, but that doesn't mean it isn't popular. UFC is bigger than boxing right now. Fighting dogs is different. The dog doesn't get to choose to be in the ring, so that makes it cruel. Nobody is holding a gun to anyone's head to participate in any violent sport. The guys that do participate love it. I think football is easily the most violent of all sports. Every guy that plays is almost certain to be seriously injured and to eventually end up a cripple, and some of those hits they take are just insane.
