If you even care about the etymology of the terms "squid" or "chicken strips" you might just be a newbie.
If you "drive" your motorcycle, you are definitely a newbie.

and sadly: :-[ If you're at a loss to explain why you spend so much time asphalt surfing and so little time riding; well, you you may be a perpetual newbie.

You might be a noob if...

...you send me an e-mail asking what kind of lights I have (3 this week)

...if you don't remember the old board

...if you log in to an SV board and ask what is the best beginner bike

...if you have to ask what frame sliders are, where to get them, or how to install them

...if you don't know what the "pass" button does

...if you think rear sets are the passenger pegs

...if you have never heard the term "pillion"

...if you still think the oil filter has a cover on it

...if you ask Ben to blead your brakes for you

...if you have any fear about the front brake throwing you over the handle bars

...if you don't know what the "FI" error means when your bike won't start and you just had the tail apart (only 03+)

...if your bike it currently on its side because you forgot to put the kick stand down

...if you ask how to post pictures in a thread

...if you own an Aztec and have ever riden a red SV into a tree

and lastly ...if you are currently wondering what the last one meant, you my friend are a noob

You might be a noob if:

-You've ever seen a rider in 90 degree weather in a leather jacket and thought "pffft, what a dumbass.

-You believe those wearing full gear are just scared

-You take the SV to the dealer for oil changes

-You believe your tires will slip out underneath the bike if you exceed the speed limit on turns.

-Your helmet is pristine

if you don't know what cc stand for...
if you put the letter V before any engine that isn't a V...
if you have ever dumped a bike because you just got new tires...
if you let a girl ride on the back wearing "booty shorts" and flip flops...
if you've ever dumped a bike before you got a mile away from the dealer...

Aww... c'mon....not just 'why' you might be a noob. Creating a list is too simple - and not nearly as fun.

Do it as if Foxworthy were talking:

"If chicken strips are what you order at KFC...you might be a noob."

"If you think tar snakes might be found in South America....you might be a noob."

If you spend $2500 for five years of "free" tires....

;D
It has been awful quiet since the 180 tire post ...
Is he alive? Did he eat some asphalt?

I always wonder after a long extended silence if what was so obvious to us
really happened ...

OH! Almost forgot ...

You might be a noob if you buy a pipe before you get some gear.

You might be a noob if you can't be seen on a "girly" bike.

You might be a noob if a track is that black mark on the asphalt in front of your driveway.

;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Kinda proud of that last one if I may say so!

I'll give it a shot...

You might be a noob if you think countersteering is a technique a bartender uses to slide a frosty one down the bar...

You might be a noob if you think bar-end mirrors are something the bartender avoids breaking while countersteering...

You might be a noob if you think the term "tail bag" refers to your old lady riding on the back of your bike...

If you have more posts on this board than miles on your bike....you just might be a noob.

;)
;)  HEE HEE!  I just made it ... 75 posts and 85 miles  LMAO  ;)

I am an ignorant noob ... ignorance can be cured ... stupidity, unfortunately cannot!

I do have 3 years of heavy dirt riding, the only thing that I really miss about Maine.  ???
They have an awesome snowmobile / ATV-bike trail system. You can ride for days
and not go over the same trail twice in a given area.

Then I suppose you could ignore the thread and not post.

But....wait....it's thejimdaddy. You couldn't keep your mouth shut to save your life. :)

"If thejimdaddy is a poorly spelled sundae at the local Friendly's, you might be (an SVrider) noob."
