What's the most ridiculous thing you've seen......

..... someone wearing, carrying or doing while riding?


A thread on another board got me .... A guy (yes, a guy) was asking what people thought about wearing Crocs (those rubber shoes that seem to be all the rage right now, despite the fact that only nurses or children should be caught dead wearing them ) for commuting to work (apparently his co. relaxed their dress code, so he was thinking Crocs and khakis would be appropriate and comfortable riding apparell ).

I'm sorry, but the sight of a guy riding a big ol cruiser with some Crocs on would just have me in fits of

So then, what's the funniest, most outrageous or ridiculous thing you've seen someone on a bike wearing (or doing)?


I think the best I've seen is guys leaving the Daytona Speedway with tires around their waist as they rode off.

If you were following me, you would see me dancing to the music in my head while on city streets and whatnot. I imagine it would be pretty funny so see but I enjoy myself.

I saw one guy riding with a large golf bag with golf clubs strung over his shoulder. The bad thing is he had it sideways instead of going toward the back.

There is a guy around here that I have only seen three or four times. He wears an old white helmet with a "gold hat" fixed to it so it looks like Jack is speeding by on a CBR. The first time I saw it I laughed so hard I stalled leaving the light trying to catch up with him.

OMG..... Frightening but funny....


Ah, I forgot about one (and this one I might be able to get a picture of)... there used to be a very big, active sportbike bike club here, and they did all kinds of events, family picnics, etc.... the President of the club showed up one year at the Spring/Easter picnic, dressed as the Easter Bunny, complete with whole face makeup, etc...... ON his (custom painted orange/white/Anime GSXR) bike, with a chrome brain bucket. It was and all at once.

I , Ahem, had this friend once that commuted to work on his bike. One day his wife ordered them a new baby walker and had it UPS'ed to his office. To stingy and stubborn to make an extra 26 mile trip he bungy corded it through the cardboard box (about 3x4 square) and strapped it to his back.

He rested said box on the pillion seat of his 636 and tightened the straps to keep the aerodynamically impaired box from pulling him off and rode home
