Went to the races Saturday at Sears Point, currently Inferior, 'er Infinion Raceway...
Dave wanted to try an Aprilla out, so off to the test rides we went. While I waited for his return , I got to see an amazing feat of stupidity.
I see some guy struggling with a bike, kinda paddle walking it. But, almost like he was trying to get it started. Some other dude comes running after him, wearing a bright yellow shirt (Buell employees only, 'cause I tried to snatch one for myself). Oh, it's a Buell that won't start, I think to myself. He was pushing the guy to bump start this demo bike to load it in the truck.
Yeah, that's it...
Now there is two dudes chasing this guy. 2 guys to push a little Buell??? Then, another bike takes off.
Then, suddenly, a truck parked between the two manufacturers takes off squeeling tires & peeling rubber down the strip. OH NO!
THAT DUDE WAS STEALING THAT BIKE??
Well, by the time I got up to the gate at the top of the hill. You know, the one with no exit? They had him. I heard they had pinned him to the ground after getting him off the bike, but he was standing when I saw him. No riding gear, no helmet, barely able to ride a bike gear or no gear.
Sonoma County Sheriff was there in a few minutes. After determining that the bike was "legally registered for the road" , it became CHP jurisdiction and much more serious charges. I guess stealing a dirt bike or off road/unregistered bike doesn't rate.
Wish I had a picture of the dude on the bike.
What a Moron....
