Way to go dickhead - August 12, 2010, 09:52 PM

So my co worker just bought a pretty nice cruiser and has a history on dirt bikes, and ATVs but primarily horses. Moving on I pull up in my truck to see it....

The bike has 5k on the odometer and a brand spanking new set of tires. It has been raining today on the already oily asphalt parking lot.

The rider has no endorsement or MSF training so he had a buddy ride the bike back when he was done at the dealer. He wanted to go out for a spin around the lot on his new purchase, still super exited about it.

My dickhead self, as he start up his shiny new ride in a abbreviated version states just chill the elements are not in your favor wait for a better time to do this. Then came the prick line "hey man you know what they say about new riders in the rain with new tires on a bike that is new to them; they all drop their bike in the parking lot 90% of the time right after the purchase" with the retort of shut up man and shrugging it off he cautiously pulled out of his parking space.

After a bit his friend who just picked up a bike also decides to start his up also and rev up his parked bike for the hell of it, fast and the furious style minus bashing the living shit out of the rev limiter thankfully.

Shortly thereafter the guy in the new cruiser pulls up to a stop chats for a sec then jokingly revs it. Then after calming down starts to pull away, from the small group observing across the parking lot we see from the other side of the lot, we see a taillight swing towards the ground as nasty metal on asphalt grinding sound rings out.

But all said and done I feel a bit like a dick now.......

Sure why not? My insurance never requested a copy of my license when I purchased my bikes.

Better to have dropped that bike in a parking lot than in the road. Next time he'll be more cautious on wet pavement and new tires. Lesson learned in a safe way.

(Also, you're writing made my head hurt a bit.)

Every bike I've ever gotten rained on during the first ride turned out to be a good one. Maybe learning the hard way will sweeten it for them

I might have a dirt bike problem.

Ah good point, I was just thinking like how car insurance wont cover a kid the first year they drive if they get in an accident with more than one person in the car. Although now that I think about it the only place I heard that from was my driver's ed teacher so that might not be true either
