Motards and Toyrun
« on: December 02, 2013, 10:09:47 am »
Nice to see the guys are at it again. We rode as quite a big group a few years ago but seems these guys are reviving the whole scene.

Okay, whether on the toy run or else where, I'm not going to diss the wheelie okes, 'cos it looks like great fun for those with the skill and youthful exuberance to do it, in fact I did it myself to a somewhat lesser extent when I used to ride lighter bikes. The ones I want to rant about are the cumpts who just have to keep (repeatedly) proving that their rev limiters are working, How I would love to see a limiter fail sometime and their motors blow to smithereens!
Can anyone explain exactly what the pleasure is in this fekking moronic activity, 'cos I just can't see it?

I'll sincerely retract my comment if someone can convincingly explain the 'fun'.

Some guys go to these rallies and runs purely for the fact to ref their bikes as hard and long as possible. Don't get it. its weird to watch how ppl fuck up their things. as long as its not mine and as long as it makes a nice sound i don't bother with that lot.

Fun is in the wheelie, but i cant see the fun in revving your bike against the limiter non stop.

I guess in the world of stupidity, anything can be classified as fun

Alright, I spoke too soon, because I've really known all along what the fun is in revving repeatedly to the limiter. People just enjoy pissing other people off.
Still, to me it seems like about as much fun as having your dick tenderised with a meat mallet.

In my opinion, this kinda thing seriously pisses me off.  :dousing:

Anybody that rides like that in a group or in that kinda traffic, like the TOY RUN, number 1 puts himself and others at risk (just looking at the amount of close shaves in the vid).

Can't help but agree with you.  I'm all for having fun on your motard, and probably would ride like a right royal twasshole if I had one - but wheelying past a slow-moving convoy of bikes like that is a bit irresponsible.  It only takes one little mistake for you to plough through those okes, and at those speeds you would do some real damage.
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Yep, and that's exactly what happened in our 2009 Toy Run where a twat did just that, lost it and took my buddy out on his Blackbird.

Guys, the Gauteng offroad run has lost its tarred run because of this.

You wanna do it, go do it. But doing at a planned event is kicking the organisers in the teeth.

They get to explain nicely to the orificer when they're planning the event the next year, not you.

Just saying.

Daar is 'n tyd en 'n plek vir alles.

Laat my dink aan die volgende woorde van 'n klein seuntjie aan sy moeder toe sy boetie, deel van 'n groot militere parade, op gemasjeer kom. "Haai ma kyk boetie is die enigste een wat in pas is."

Ek sal sekerlik nie volgende jaar deel wees van die baie goeie Run nie.
