Alright, I couldn't resist the urge any longer. Here's the 'what the hell was I thinking' thread I mentioned earlier.
Anyone care to share the most ridiculous, idiotic, flagrantly unnecessary thing they've done on a motorcycle? Something that just makes you shake your head when you think of it now? We've all had our moments, especially in our younger days. The temptation to be a dumbass is omnipresent; experience represses it, but doesn't make it go away.
The dumbest thing I ever did was in my dirt bike days. I used to ride in FVDRA's 24-Hour Dirt Bike Marathon (a dearly missed event). My first year, trying to impress hot dirt bike chicks (I was eleven), I climbed on the super-duper MX80 my parents had bought for me and my brother about six months beforehand and bragged I could do a jump with my eyes closed. Someone called my bluff, and I was stupid enough to NOT back down. The end result? A trip to emergency, one helluva big bruise, and sorely battered pride. Oh, and I missed the race, too...
Add in little things like tear-assing around nature reserves and doing donuts in the field at my old elementary school, and I fell firmly into the 'teenager that needs better discipline' category.
I should add as a warning to all who may have something at stake, this forum is well-known to ICBC and their investigators. No, I WILL NOT elaborate on that.
