Default what happens when you show off at a DicE Party

You destroy the most beautiful car in the state of washington.
There is no reason to be a "two wheeled terror" at a show or anywhere.
having a few drinks and racing down the street doing burnouts on the bike you just built to impress your friends is not "showing class"
Lucky for him the kid has insurance and this is not a previous decade.

ugh - christ, that blows! i understand accidents happen, but when they happen from showing off - the shit is plain stupid. my theory is this: if i wouldnt do it while riding alone, i shouldnt do it if there's a bunch of people watching.

(ps - thank you for the killer skate deck i won on the EDR)

Yeah that really sucks man, things like this make any biker not idling through a car show look like pure evil on 2 wheels. I've been yelled at by old goldchainers(not calling forsakenfew a goldchainer) about not riding my "piece of junk" by their cars at shows. this only makes it worse.

I concur. On my last run 10 years ago, I was scolded by three different "bikers" for riding "too fast" and giving "bikers a bad name." Meanwhile, I was thinking I was Springsteen sliding wide open through the turns on my ironhead. Sold the Harley a year later and haven't been to a sanctioned event since.

IF we aren't allowed to show off and act stupid around our friends where can we go? Oh, yeah, I forgot. Someone's property was damaged. And that costs a lot of money.

Messing up one's own shit is one thing, one just has to shrug it off and fix it. But damaging someone else's property, especially somethign that has taken so much time, money, collaboration and effort as that car.. Ouch.

There's a time and place for everything, and using common sense isn't forbidden either.

riding like an asshole and the look at me surfing shit, etc. fucking sucks. sorry you didn't get enough attention in your youth.

that sucks fully and the kid should be held 100% responsible for his actions.

Sorry to hear. That's a beautiful car! Sounds like it's being handled professionally (not emotionally) and that will help. Best of luck!

this just reminded me of when i was a kid, my mom had a nice 78 vette & parked it on the side of her work so nobody would fuck it up. then a dude who worked there also was dicking around on his friends old honda, trying to do a burnout, ended up loosing it & blasting right through the rear quarter of the vette. fiberglass car + motorcycle = giant hole.

Whatever the case may be, theres always gonna be "THAT GUY" the only thing to change is wether or not your the "other guy" that gets the shit end of the stick. I showed off once and looped my bike in front of my house....I was 16 and learned my lesson. But your always gonna have the guy that just started riding and has yet to become acquainted with pavent or embarassment.

At first, its not so bad Tim, but then when you think about matching candy fades and the cob-webbing panels well, we're just fortunate that there is still a lot of the one-off kustom flake color i had made for this car left over. But still, I most likely will be changing my name to Annie Sullivan so I can do some miracle working.

i would have had a hard time not flipping out. we were at a little show on Saturday, and i had my bike and my car right next to each other.

this moron on a street bike kept trying to ride wheelies and do stoppies on the 2 lanes of road between the cars. i kept expecting the worse to come... thankfully it never did.

Any huge "party" like that is not the time, nor the place.
