Saw the epitomy of an idiot yesterday

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by beardedgnome, Dec 15, 2006.

  1. Whilst driving up King St Newtown yesterday afternoon, I saw a guy on a silver Ducati (ST something) with a pillion pulling his helmet down by the chin piece to take swigs from his wine bottle. What a hero!!! Both of them!

  4. Scrambles can drink a beer with his helmet on.


    ... FluffyDonkey can drink beer underwater.

    The unique and talented are all around us, chaps!

  5. Clearly these two geniuses were on their way to collect their PhDs for their in-depth study into road safety.

  6. What a couple of idiots, what if they'd spilled some, the camel back is a much better idea, and what were they thinking having glass on a bike how dangerous is that. :shock:

  7. The reflected glare off that bottle could have blinded an oncoming P-plater!
    -> causing some sort of serious and no doubt 'speed-related' accident!

  8. I started to get worried when you said "King St Newtown yesterday..." cos I was squidding down there and possibly riding in a manner considered dangerous by the constabulary. :LOL:

  9. Fruity Lexia out of a cask, or camelback, would be much safer. :p

  16. So let me get this straight just for clarification;

    if someone does something stupid to us in a car then they're arseholes......
    if a scooter rider doesn't nod or ride with enough protection then we're ignorant arseholes.....

    but if a Ducati rider (or I'm guessing any other road bike rider) does something stupid (which is potentially life threatening for themselves AND others on the road) then they're a hero??

    No wonder nobody takes any notice of our opinions.

  18. Why would you pull the helmet down though, and risk snapping your chin strap, when you could just carve a hole in it with a hole saw to fit the bottle through?

    Bloody tools...

  19. Ahhhh the term "hero" was used in jest.

    See also sarcasm.

  20. You got it all wrong Greg !!

    Ducati owners are sensible and drink out of glasses ! :grin:
