VIC Mystery crashes and The Ride ad

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by twistngo, Feb 14, 2013.

  1. As TAC can't explain why the rider in "The Ride" ad crashed, I though we should help them out by posting videos of hard to explain crashes. A few seconds into this one Max Biaggi comes off for no apparent reason. OK its wet but there's still not many clues as to what happened.

  2. I don't know if that's a good idea. It potentially gives them ammunition.

    "See even the riders themselves don't know why motorcycles crash - ban them".

    He was braking into a corner in the wet & locked the front....

    Hardly a mystery that one... o_O

    Edit: Not meaning to rain on your parade, it's an interesting idea, but might be best approached from the other way, THIS is why bike x crashed, etc.

  9. But so was the TAC ad, didn't stop them from telecasting it.
  10. Why in gods name would this help us? 'Look TAC, you're right, bikes do crash for no apparent reason, continue with your bullshit please'.

  11. comeon we all know there was a copper poking a stick out of the camo hide into the riders spokes.
  12. Had to happen, he was 38 more times likely to crash.

    That's how it works, isn't it?
  13. Saw a 38 times billboard on the freeway today, instant thoughts of burning it down
  14. Discredit the 38 times mantra. All you need to do is make it a figure of scorn. Who can come up with best 38 times statement.

    TAC Management 38 times more likely to make stupid statements.
    TAC 38 times more illinformed than Sarah Palin
    TAC uses prostitutes 38 times more regularly than Craig Thomson
    TAC 38 times more likely to believe they have been abducted by aliens.
