Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by Bogus69, Jun 1, 2005.

  1. When I joined here and started on learning the ways of the motorcycle I found many things confusing. I also noticed a lot of the same question being asked by myself and other noobs.

    I also noticed the stick threads for many commonly asked questions and have found them of great value.

    There are still heaps of things that I don't understand yet but that's OK, I'll get there with the help of you lot!

    How about a new sticky thread in the "New rider" section that serves as a glossary?
    common motorcyling terms (maybe a few funny ones too) can added as we go.

    Things like....
    Chicken strips
    High side
    Low Side
    Counter steer
    Counter Balance
    Tank slapper


    What do you reckon?

  2. go boz! i like it
  3. Tank slapper - A VERY large woman with whom you do not fcuk.

    Low side - biker owwy where bike falls over due to lack of speed.

    High side - biker owwie where bike falls over due to lack of brains.

    West siiiiieed - Cool part of town all bikers apsire to.

    Counter steer - A technique that a drunk biker uses to leave the bar, requires a counter with a door at one end.

    Counter balance - similar to above but the drunk biker is sticking around for another round.

    1%ers - a biker that scores very badly on tests.

    Chicken strips - a nice biker treat, good with chilli sauce.

    Let me know if you need any more explained :D
  4. Hehehe.
    Good stuff.

    that link is exactly what I'm talking about.
  5. is a tank slapper the same as a Turkey slap ?

    :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
  6. Could be like a hood ornament but for your tank. :)
    Just don't stop too quick or your tank slapper my become a ball breaker. :LOL:
  7. He'll even let you practice these techniques on the back of his bike, just ask him :LOL: :p :LOL:

    1%ers - a bunch of liars, but at least the 99% admit to having a wank
  8. Tank Slapper - a bike ignoramus who thinks that giving a few solid knocks on the fuel tank will give them some indication to the sturdiness of the bike.

    these people also display behaviours such as touching the nice shiny exhaust pipe when it is hot, and burning themselves.
  9. Do I hear calls for a FAQ section?

    Leave it with us :)
  10. Can I contribute? :D
  11. :shock: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :p :p :p :p
  12. No cause the East siiiiideeee of town is where all the cool folk live!

    And VTR Bob just what you choose to do with Turkey's is between you & the R.S.P.C.A.!
