The Loser: Road Warrior Addition
 
Legend in the Making:

A Honda Ascot VT500 was bought in 1984, rode around for a few hundred miles, and forgotten.

In 2007, the moto was given to Geek by Dangerous Dave (I believe), at which point the Geek decided that road tires are no longer sufficient, and that this moto's desire to "be bad" has to be released. He rode much of Colorado and many other states.

Eventually his time with Loser came to an end when he started an affair with a Husky 610 (a whole different book), and other some such nonsense.

All was well enough, because a young whipper snapper by the name of Spooph fell in love with the Loser, having fantasized about "the ride" on the Loser so often. Spooph finally talked Geek into letting him have the thing, and started fondling the beast in every which way.

Spooph received helped from over 7 people to make his dream of being the Apocalypse biker (Raising Arizona), or some Mad Max variant possible...

Somewhere in the mix, a so-called FelixdeLarge Aussie requested to spend some time with the loser, and since the Loser was such an amalgamation up to this point, it would've only been fitting to let him take her for a spin...

Ascots rock! Glad to see this one's still running.

i bought the loser from the original owner in the winter of 04 for the lofty sum of $200. the bike was pristine with only 5k on it . the guy bought it new and rode it for 2 summers in college. then it was put away from 1986 until i got it.

i bought it in january 04 put a new battery in and changed the oil. it ran great!
no sooner did i have a running bike, a friend calls and says lets go to copper canyon...sure. i didnt have time to test ride (snow) i put in the back of a truck bound for texas.unloaded and that was the first time i rode it.

it performed flawlessly for a month in mexico, the next year i put 30k on it riding to alaska, california, north carolina(where the red wire incident happened) and everywhere in between.

the bike was then rode to california again to buy a klr where it was left for dead in my brothers backyard in huntington beach.

then came geek and the story continues...then comes spoof and once again the story continues all without money changing hands just a promise to ride the shit out of it.

loving the ride report spoof...brings a tear to my eye.

At least Geek didn't coat the entire thing with chain lube like he did his KTM. :lol3

Great story!

Looks good.. but I"m thinking this Road Warrior is now a BEAST!!:lol3 Do you want to keep it here or move it to Beasts? :ear

Lomax 03-09-2012 04:12 PM

Ah yes, the memories of Geek in my old hand me down O'Neil boots and the memories of red wire all over my garage. :lol3

I must subscribe to this just to keep an eye on it.
