Default Newbies; Good training is importantant

Just because you can afford it, doesn't mean you know how to ride it
YouTube - leroy gets a new harley

Why shouldn't a large sportbike be your first bike?
YouTube - Motorcycle Crash

Just because it looks cool, doesn't mean you won't eff it up as soon as you drive it off the lot...oh, and zip up your damn jacket, otherwise it won't do crap for you.

If you are going to perform some stunts...maybe you should try it out on an old beater bike and not your new Suzuki.
YouTube - Motorcycle Idiot

If you ever lose control of your bike, make sure you let go of the freakin' handle bars, ok?
YouTube - Idiot on Motorcycle

Remember, watch the road AHEAD of you and not at your foot.
YouTube - Idiot on motorcycle

And lastly, I can not stress enough, take the motorcycle safety course. It will teach basic riding principles. It may not make you road ready, but you won't end up like this r-tard.

I know most of these have been kicked around for a while, but it seems we get a lot of new riders asking "well, why can't I get a big ass bike?!"

I agree. I just couldn't help the memories from the SV site when someone would manage to sneak that in.

It's an "old one" on the HawkGT List as well. Of course, the joke is about the (hack, spit!) SV.

(which really is a good bike - it's a HawkGT, only newer and with different flaws)

(and 12 more horsepower, stock. 16 for the 2nd-gen SV)

My Dad did that parking lot wheelie/crash thing with the Kaw W2-650SS I bought in Japan. Except he hit a chain link fence. I explained to him very clearly that it had a lot more power than the old Henderson4 he rode as a young man, but would he listen? Nooooooooo.

Actually he spent the war in New Mexico maintaining the Beech Twin aircraft that they used to train bomber pilots. He had his orders for the Pacific in July 1945. Luckily for him Hiroshima and Nagasaki eliminated the necessity of invading Japan. My parents had no patience with the idiots who still like to second guess what happened back then.

Yeah, but back then - "Ashtray Engineer" actually MEANT somethin'! Back then, they Engineered things for heft, built 'em to last, cast them suckers from Bismuth-alloy an' then freakin' Chrome-plated 'em for Beauty.

You didn't hear 'bout somebody hijacking a plane to freakin' Cuba...... or crashing one into the tallest building the Capitalist Satan had in town (Arlo's IGA Grocery and All-Night 8mm-film rental) - Hell No!

And you wanna know WHY? I'll tell you Why! - If some kockamamie fargin' icehole jumped up on an Airplane and started screamin' and wavin' a gun or knife around, you stubbed out your cigarette, detached the ashtray from the seatback in front of you, and brained that Crazy Sum-bum-an-inch with it because he was spoilin' your view down the front of your Stewardess' blouse with all his rantin' and ravin'.

Hell, I heard that once the Atomic Age finally hit full-swing, Boeing was considering making ashtrays from spent-uranium just to make 'em heavier (and 'cuz the Gub'Mint was givin' that crap away - can't beat "Free"). As a bonus, you wouldn't even need a lighter - just hold the bidness-end O' the cig up-against the ashtray and; VOILA! Sucker was Lit...............

Then some Spook thought-up Yucca Mountain, blew that plan all to Hellandbegone.

Nowadays, Ashtray Engineers just make the crappin' things outta Plastic, if they even bother earnin' their pay to DESIGN one in the FIRST darm-place............
