Well, the answer is yes. Just how much of an asshole I am is really my question.

Case in point:

I convinced a friend that he should get his licence and bike. Told him I would help him out along the way and so I did. Convinced him he should get good gear and counselled him on what bike to get.

The day comes where he finds this well priced 2000 CBR F4 and decides to buy it, even though he doesnt have a full lincence yet (learners only). I he gets me to ride his bike home.

So, I haven't been on bike for a while (and before you start drawing your own conclusions, no, I did not crash it). Buddy is following in his car back to his house. While I rode pretty sedatly the whole way, I just couldn't resist. With my friend behind me, I tried a couple of wheelies... :evilgrin

Whats the punishment for doing unauthorized wheelies on a friends bike?

Nice.

I think any guy would have done the same.

Now, I would have thrown in a smokey burnout to really boil his blood!!! :D

Well, on the asshole scale of one to ten, you didn't even budge the meter. But I hope you told him you were a professional performing wheelies in a controlled environment and that he should try it himself sometime.

You may be an asshole, but I don't think this counts as a contributing reason.

Was he pissed off because you did a few wheelies on his bike? Is he afraid that he can no longer resell the bike and tell people that its never been wheelied?

You'd be an asshole for riding his girlfriend.. not for doing a couple wheelies on his bike.

The only opinion that really matters is yours and your friend's.




I always treat my friends' property with the utmost of care. How would you like it if your buddy dry fired your highly tuned sidearm a couple hundred times without your permission?

Hold it there cowboy. You ain't *completely* free of being an asshole. :) Maybe yotta showed 'm the wheelie action after he got comfortable on his own new bike? Now he'll just wanna wheelie like you do. Now there'll either be 2 riders doing ugly wheelies [ :D ] OR: 1 rider doing wheelies while his friend's bike is in the shop for post-wheelie repairs [ :( ] ...cuz he was ridin' on one wheel ...before he was good at riding on two.

Just a thought. Back to my knitting...
:coffee

If it helps, about 5 or 6 years ago my friend rode his 996 to Whistler for a BBQ etc. I drove up later in the day with some friends 'cause I was planning on drinking. He was goofing around earlier in the afternoon playing flag football with some of the kids there and lost one of his contacts. He is as blind as a bat without it and has very poor night vision and depth perception without his contact lens. He didn't want to ride the bike home without the lens.

It was getting late, so of course, I come to the rescue and offer to ride his bike home... I hadn't started drinking yet. No gear except his helmet and gloves, which kinda fit. After the lecture of no speeding, no wheelies, don't be an asshole, blah, blah blah... at the first set I lights I get to, at the Husky station, of course I did an 'accidental' but evidently very impressive wheelie.

I turned around and could see my friend in the passenger seat of the car behind me fuming :firemad . No more wheelies after that... and got home safe and sound. (BTW, nice bike but brutally heavy clutch - crossing the Lions Gate Br in heavy traffic was torture).

No, you are not an asshole - but I may be a little biased :laughing
