so we hired this new guy at work a couple weeks ago, he's a young dude about 19 or 20 pretty cool guy i like him alright. anyway the Kid hears me one monday morning answer the usual how was your weekend question from another co-worker. I say: fantastic , I rode the bike all weekend long too bad its over. right after that the kids asking me what bike i have, how fast is it, etc. you guys know the usual questions. next thing i know he's bought himelf one. He announced it today and immediately started sharing with me all the aftermarket parts hes ordered and what he's bout to order. he wants to know where he can get heads and cams power commanders the whole set-up. bear in mind he's only ridden the bike 27 miles to his apartment. I figure he's ridden before so i tell him what i know and he goes on to ask me how to do a wheelie. that was the red flag, i had to ask: "how many bikes have you ridden ?". he said one for 27 miles yesterday. OMG. I tell him i dont really do wheelies, i might pop it up for a second but i never try to ridem out. my next question is "do you have a helmet?" he looks at me like it's something he hadn't even considered yet. i giggled and said you spent/spending all this money on the bike already and you haven't even started to think about getting some gear? WTF goes on in some peeps heads? neway i've decided i cant watch him splatter himself down the highway doin 167 mph wheelies in a straight line, so im gonna take him out to a parking lot and some sweepers i take short trips on and break him off right tomorrow, at least try and let him know what he needs to know to keep him 2 tires down and between the mayo n the mustard. he still doesn't have a helmet which i hate, but he said he was ridin tomorrow no matter what so i figured if he's gonna ride with no gear at all that i might as well be there to try and keep him at a slow pace on some easy curves. any body ever know anybody like that? how do you care for newborn squids? lol.
