Why You Should Avoid Being a Douchebag at All Costs
A Handy Mini-Guide to Avoiding Douchebaggery in Three Easy Steps!

Greg Coutu (of Cafe Racers of New England and Circle One One) discovered a huge dent in his tank after leaving the event he was attending. Someone was apparently trying to park their motorcycle and ended up dropping their bike onto his. I expect to hear these sad, sad stories of parking failures and debacles about car drivers (or “cagers”). But not from a fellow motorcyclist. The guy left! Didn’t leave his info or anything! 


Don’t do this. Don’t be a douchebag. Don’t be like Terrance [lastnamecensored] and drop your Suzuki onto a sweet-ass custom motorcycle! Yes, they did end up catching him and because of Greg filed a police report, he’ll be charged with a hit-and-run. So here are my three easy tricks to help you not be like him:

Step 1) Get a bike you’re comfortable riding, and fits your height/inseam
Step 2) Do not ride intoxicated (yes, one beer affects you)
Step 3) Practice parking your bike on all sorts of surfaces and angles
