Featured I Must Be Old - Some Bikers/motorcyclists (but Not Bootsam) Are Starting To Look Stupid To Me.

Discussion in 'Lounge' started by Noods, Mar 6, 2019.

  1. Must confess perhaps it’s my age but a couple of times today I saw bikers on their pride and joys and for the first time really I thought to myself god, how sad are you..

    Guy on a Kawasaki pulled up at the lights wobbling his way to the front of the Q blipping his throttle very loudly with his 4 into one pipe.. He wore full leathers with one of those multi coloured visors on iredium or something with the looking around as if to find admiring glances ( there were none) He pulled away really loud accelerating hard just to get stopped 50 yards ahead at the next set of lights where he went through it all again including revving the thing whilst looking down at the engine as if to spot some problem with it..

    Ten mins later a DUCATI Scrambler pulled up, he wore jeans, leather boots but not motorcycle type, a hoodie backpack and open faced Matt black helmet with cop type shades.. bike sounded nice and he just took his time looking totally chilled .. I thought yes, I really thought my luv affair with biking was coming to an end but no, perhaps there is hope thanks to a little Scrambler.. x

  6. I don’t think I was alone thinking this tbh.. he even rode with elbows and knees sticking out as if he was sitting on a tube or train and taking up man space.. I thought god if that’s what I look like I’ve got to stop..
    perhaps I’m becoming a hipster! X

  8. Obv I have my problems but as much as I adore the Troy Bayliss’s the Rossi’s and the likes as superheroes nothing to me is sadder than when you see a biker with everything in replica to their idol.. there was one trying to sell a 1198 I think on e bay which was on there months.. I always think.. your not Rossi your not Hodgson etc you are you.. be proud of that..
    yes I wear my West Ham shirt with pride but it will always have NOODS on the back..

    People wearing Rossi t shirts etc yep that’s great, it’s the 18 stone bloke with a huge bank loan buying everything possible to just look daft that I find sad ..

    After all, undoubtedly Rossi is bound to be a huge fan of the one and only ( and thank Christ for that ) NOODS or Noodles, but I’m sure he’s not walking around in a West Ham shirt with a pocket full of noodle doodles pencils and obligatory replica space helmet is he.. x

  9. Nothing makes me cringe as much as seeing someone weaving down the road to "warm the tyres" as if they are about to join the grid.

  12. There are plenty of riders who fall within the middle of those two descriptions, in fact a majority I'd hope.

    In fairness to the Kawasaki man, he might have been annoyingly loud and revvy but at least he was wearing full leathers, whilst cool (debatable) Scrambler Hipster dude was wearing jeans and open face helmet, both could bin it on the next corner, I wonder who'd look coolest after meeting the tarmac face down :thinkingface:

    I guess it's all sad to someone somewhere, the key is being happy about it yourself and screw what anyone thinks :upyeah:

  15. I dont think anyone that supports west ham should judge another :grinning:

    After all he may have had a chelsea shirt on under those leathers :upyeah:
     
  16. I love posts like these. It’s exactly the opinion that riders of other marques have of Ducati riders and partly why everyone that doesn’t ride a Ducati hates Ducati riders

  17. I followed a couple of R1 jockeys a couple of weeks ago edges of there tyre's had never felt the road they were surprised when a fat old chap on a old Ducati left them behind in the twisty bits

  18. I forgot one bit of crucial information, sorry about that..

    Other than covered in lime green body paint, we’re talking naked.. ( fold your ears in DB)

    So I guess riding around undressed like that with all your
    Foreign bits on display to each and manybody whilst announcing yourself with lots of right hand jerking motions and glancing admirably at your loud but very short and inadequate Tossimorra pipe shouting oooh, here I cum, I’m cumming I’m cumming !

    Has to be said, all told his arrival was a real anti - climax, he really failed to impress where it mattered..

    Now if, instead, he’d of turned up at the front of the Q again naked, but with a big throbbing Monster between his legs .. ???

  20. Yeah, jealousy is a bastard hey.. then they quip...” how’s the Duke then? “ “ You got an RAC van following you just in case?”
    “ Bet it’s handy that having a bike with 5 reverse gears and all that eh!”

    Well, at least we can pick ours out easily at a bike meet, being that we’re not riding one of the 50 identical Yamasaki-SuziOnda’s parked, or should I say, awaiting rust there..
