    Hipster motorcycle riders...

    So I am seeing allot of hipster fools on the roads on their 1970 ish Rat/cafe racer P.O.S machines wearing their metal flake 3/4 helmets, rayban sunglasses, jean jackets and converse high tops puting around thinking they look Fonzie cool.
    yesterday and today I was cut off on my bike by one of these fools. no turn signal or hand signal. had no idea how to ride on a road. Now i ride like an asshole but these guys are just downright dangerous. Another one tried to pass me on the hiway and he went into a scary tank slapper as he passed me... WTF people.. learn to ride first. then build your piece of shit 1970 rat bike...
    end of rant...

    I personally know a cluster of these fools. And it's just that - waaaaaaaaaaaay more time into sculpting their 'rides' out of rusty, bent trash that they find in the dumps and fleamarkets than actual riding time, no concern for 'modern improvements', just so long as it looks hipster-cool.

    Yea, I don't ride with them. Too slow, too eratic, too heatscore, and the open-face-metalflake helmets with all-but-rotted out foam liners are apparently mandatory.

    Looking...
    Saw a whole army of them coming back from the sunshine coast last year. Three of them had to get push started off the ferry.

    I don't know about any other rat bike riders, but I know I can ride. Building one right now, why? Cause its the new thing to have, barely makes the speed limit and if they impound it? Who CARES!

    You have the all girl Rat Bike group in vancouver, jean vest with pink circle black Ferrari insignia. Also skate boarders/ratbiker's seen a lot of them last year.
    The 3/4 metalflake with shades and shit shoe's, just road crayons waiting to happen with the majority of their mod's involving a hacksaw.

    My friend's son is into that scene but we have convinced him to take the PRS course and I have sat with him and watched lot's of youtube vids and tried to get Him to realize if you want to survive on a bike you have to develop the appropriate skills.

    They'd probably be spending more time riding than worrying about rat-styling their bike...
    4 posts, 1 ride, 1 crash. That's a good ratio right?

    Most have no skill's, way more important to look the part than take riding seriously and no I wouldn't want to see them on a 600 on a twisty road as they would ruin my day by planting themselves in the ditch.
    Best let them enjoy their 300-350 honda's with no mufflers sounding badass in traffic winding the piss out of their little motors to keep up with the mini vans.

    A tricked out Thruxton all shiney doesn't quite fit especially railing corners with the knee down.
    You are going to have to research british mod's and rocker's to see where you fit at the ACE Cafe

    I vote "Rocker" as the mod's like scooters and cordaroy.

    Honestly who really cares who wears what or what they ride? All I know is keep off my wave or I will punt you into the weeds as I ride by knee down, hard on the throttle back wheel spinning leaving darkies in my wake...

    you got a proper helmet, and your tires are not older than either you or your bike.

    If you were on a real litrebike that weighed about sixty pounds less than your RCboatanchor, it would just wheelie instead of spinning the tire.
