You Probably Shouldn't Do That: Riding A Dirt Bike After A Wheel Spoke Breaks

June 5, 2017

Hats: They're the new helmets.

This is a short video of a future good ol' boy continuing to ride a dirt bike in Oley, Pennsylvania after a spoke on the back wheel broke. That does not look safe. That also does not look like a very comfortable ride. Me? I am the MOST comfortable ride. "You mean sexually?" No I do not. I meant like, piggyback. And I was lying about that too, I've never not dropped a rider on their neck.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Crognam, who agrees somebody should get this kid a helmet for his birthday because he's gonna need it.

    I build spoked motorcycle wheels, and I make SO much money out of people that keep riding them when they are turning crappy! Kinda excited to see a crossover of my two favourite things - motorbikes and Geekologie.

    How much education/experience/motivation does one need to do this kind of thing? I've always liked motorcycles but don't own one and can't afford to spend... like... more than $0.50 from a typical paycheck.

    What I'm getting at... Could a techie nerd like me get a second job working on motorbikes?

    Motorbikes are only as expensive as you let them be! My entire life I've ridden and raced dirt bikes, and I build custom spoked wheels for race teams and random customers...but my full-time job is being head technical computer nerd in a multi-million dollar online store and using spreadsheets to manage 160,000 line items of inventory, so yeah, motorbikes are suitable for nerds!

    So what I'm getting here is I have to own and ride then I can learn stuff and try to become a wrench monkey as a second job.

    You do what you gotta do to get to your trimming job
