Advice needed..

a co-worker of mine started riding last year, i think he bought a 250 of some sort. In any case, he ended up purchasing a 749 with some fugly ass graphics, but nice nonetheless, and i caught him leaving work last week. He's about 5'3, and prolly has less than 5k experience on the 250, maybe less. As he was mounting his bike, i noticed that he didn't know how to scoot his ass over so that his right foot would be flat footed, enabling him to rest the bike on it, while using his left foot to replace the kickstand. I caught him trying to balance the bike so that he can have leverage to put the kickstand up, but he couldn't cause he didn't 'kick off' hard enough to give space for the kickstand to move freely. So, he's bouncing left to right, while trying to kick the stand, which failed miserably, and i couldn't help but laugh my f'n ass off (of course, i was laughing inside).

Now, the nice guy that i am, i would normally help him and give him advice, but he's such an arrogant punk that i actually want to see him drop the thing. Basically, he talks to me like i'm 12 years old and don't know how to ride, and he brags about his ugly colored bike so much that sometimes i just want to grab his helmet from him and smack him upside the head with it.

So, what should i do? be nice and show him how it's done, or wait till he asks me how much plastics are?

Do you want to be really mean? If so, jam something in his kickstand that will prevent it from going up. Then sit back and videotape as he tries forever to kick his kick stand up.

That's evil man... Nah, next time i see him i'll ask if i can ride it, then do it how it's supposed to be done, in hopes that he'll catch on. If he doesn't let me ride it, i'm zip tying that bitch.

let him drop it. he`ll learn a lesson on his own that might chill his arrogant ass out and hopefully do enough damage to his fugly paint that he`ll have to hit up maaco for new color. killing 2 birds with one stone/

if you kill him he won`t learn nuthin`

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

No, your other left

If you can live with a clear conscience stay quiet.

Other than that tell him what to do. Arrogant or not do you want him to go down? I bet his kickstand skillz are the least of his worries.

guilt need not apply. falling / crashing is a by-product of riding if you can`t accept that then hang up the helmet.

Could have some real fun, and crank the ride height adjuster up a half inch every day, leaving him thinking he is getting even shorter

He's not a member, nor does he join group rides, so his bike is for straight posin'. He wears all the proper gear (although, he's sportin' the lovely repsol poser jacket), but he just rubs me the wrong way (i know what you're going to say, so save it!). He's just super cocky, thinks he knows it all (he tells me that the 749's ONLY came in black, then he comes to work with a red and white one, fucking dumbass), and he thinks he's got the baddest bike on the planet. Apparently, he hasn't met Vcook yet.

get a little bit of new, clean oil. Go out on a smoke break and rub some of the ground next to his bike so when he puts his foot down and tries to get the kickstand up his foot slides out. People should really be nice to other people or bad things happen

My advice would be....throw it to his sister.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I wouldn't show him, but would suggest that he find a better way to get the bike off the kickstand and leave it at that. if he decides to ask for help then offer.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

I'm not an ass! And he's def not cool, that's why he bought the Duc. I'll see him today and invite him to a group ride with the CLSB'rs.
