  • Where's the line for YOU? Hoon vs Enthusiast

    Okay, "cuntstubble dare" doing burnouts and the reaction of some to that news crystallised the question for me.

    Obviously, different people have a different line which differentiates a motorsport enthusiast from a hoon.

    For me, the line gets crossed if the driver/rider is significantly increasing the risk of injury to those around him.

    Where's yours? Discuss.

    It's fine to do burnouts, wheelies, etc as long as you are not endangering or inconveniencing those around you.

    ie. Expression session in industrial area, not traffic = ok
    Burnout in residential area, 10pm = Bad

          +1 as long as you are doing it in a "safe" environtment, ie no chance of you hurting anyone else except yourself if you screw it up. Then who really gives a toss. If you're being a cock in traffic ie doing burnouts, drifts etc you are a hoon.

            I'm with you on that!! If a rider is riding out of his/her depth it's bad for all concerned.....
            Can you teach me how to wheelie properly

              If you can control a wheelie, what the hell's wrong with doing it in traffic?

              Etholred - if I ever learn how to do a wheelie, I'll teach you too. Wish I could, eh... :sigh:

                  When someone will goof off in their commodore or WRX but will feel embarrassed about trying to do the same in a manual Gemini, they are a hoon.

                      The problem is the dickhead who pulls out in front of you and you can't stop or the cagers paying more attention to your awesome minger than the road

                        im gonna cut in here and rant about the incorrect use of the word minger - it was recently pointed out to me that a minger is a shortenning of flamingo - a seat stander wheelie with one foot pointed back.. minger != wheelie..

                        carry on.

                            I thought minger = ugly looking he/she

                              So those UK teenagers that only wear Adidas were being ironic when they talked about women?
