Re: SMASH! or 'Never Let ANYONE Ride Yer Bike'
The Honda I tried to kill was a 1977 CB 360 fresh off the showroom floor (I think it had a couple hundred miles on it). We were drinking and he said "Sure, take it fer a ride....go down through ****'s Hollow and then turn around a crank 'er up coming down the long straight."
I did... The curves came up a little faster than I thought they should have and I never made the first one. At least it was repairable and we remained friends.
I did manage to kill another fast appreciating classic- a '71 Suzuki Titan and broke three vertibrea in my neck doing it.
Yes I still get on "those damned things".
