I want to know how people feel about someone that protest you at a show. I know that some things come into question like hydros and rideable or does it work, but do you think it goes to far when someone to worry about a win or a loss insted of having fun and repping your club :dunno:

If I remember reading correctly you can't protest any more even if you put up the fee.

THAT IS RIGHT...........YOU CAN'T PROTEST THE SCORING OF THE JUDGES.........BUT YOU CAN PROTEST THE OPERABILITY OF A BICYCLE. I THINK THE FEE IS LIKE $50. THE THING IS ONLY A DIRECT COMPETITOR CAN PROTEST. IN OTHER WORDS A STREET BIKE CAN'T PROTEST THE OPERABILITY OF A RADICAL BIKE.

PERSONALLY, IF YOU BUILD TO WIN THEN IT SHOULDN'T MATTER WHAT SOMEONE ELSE DOES. YOU DO YOUR THING AND LET THINGS GO AS THEY MAY BE. NOW THERE ARE THOSE THAT WILL PROTEST OFFICIALLY OR UNOFFICIALLY TO THE JUDGES. WE WERE PROTESTED AGAINST IN 2003........AND IN 2000 AZTECA 2000 WAS PROTESTED AGAINST.

SOME PEOPLE GET THERE AND SEE THAT THEY ARE BEAT OR MIGHT BE BEAT SO THEY TRY TO ELIMINATE THE COMP.

IF THERE IS A LEGIT COMPLAINT LIKE THE BIKE IS OBVIOUSLY NONOPERABLE THEN GO PROTEST.

Well i think it's chicken shit to protest.When you get beat you get beat you just have to improve your bike.Get your score card and try to improve on what you didn't score good on.

OK, SINCE THIS TOPIC IS A ROLL OFF OF WHAT I POSTED IN ANOTHER TOPIC, I WILL ADD MY 2-CENTS. PROTESTING IS FOR THE BIRDS, BUT THE MAIN FOCUS IS WHAT IS WRITTEN. IF THE RULES ARE GOING TO BE WRITTEN WELL THEN THEY SHOULD BE ENFORCED. JUST LIKE ELECTRICITY, LRM STATES IF YOU USE IT AND DON'T PAY FOR IT YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. NOW LAST YEAR IN SAN FRANCISCO, SOMEONE WITH OUT NAMING THIS PERSON USED AND DID NOT PAY AND STILL WALKED HOME WITH A CHECK AND A FAT TROPHY. SO WHAT ABOUT THOSE THAT PAID? WHAT'S SO FAIR ABOUT THAT?
MY POINT IS ABOUT THE CURRENT CHAMPIONS I FEEL THAT IF SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE ON TOP WELL THEY HAVE TO BE 100% NOT JUST LOOK 100%. AS FAR AS COMPETITION IS CONCERNED AND ABOUT BEING CONCERNED IF YOUR GOING TO WIN, SO YOU PULL A WILD CARD OUT LIKE THAT WELL THEN, NO IT'S STUPID, A TRUE CHAMPION DOESN'T NEED A SCORE SHEET TO WIN HE/SHE JUST KNOWS.
IN THAT CASE HEY I'M GOING TO SLAP A 30" PLASMA TO MY BIKE SINCE I DON'T NEED CABLE/SATELLITE. OR A BATTERY..

I HAVE SEEN THE RULE OF HAVING TO PAY FOR ELECTRICITY. I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS A WAY GOLO KNOWS WHO HAS PAID........I MEAN I DON'T KNOW IF THEY WORK THAT CLOSE WITH THE ELECTRICIANS..........

SINCE THE RULEBOOK ONLY MENTIONS THE BIKE ITSELF BEING OPERABLE......PEOPLE WILL CONTINUE TO PUT THINGS ON THE BIKE JUST FOR SHOW.

WE LIKE TO MAKE SURE ALL THINGS WORK......OTHERWISE WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING THEM. THAT IS WHY WHEN WE FIRST CAME OUT WE MOUNTED THE PUMP ON THE BIKE. NO ONE HAD BEEN SHOWING LIKE THAT BEFORE. SAME WITH OUR TV SCREENS INTHE BODY.........IT SHOULD ALL WORK................

WELL YES THEY NOW HAVE A STAMP THAT SAYS PAID!!! YOU CAN BE DISQUALIFIED FOR IT, NEXT I STILL THINK IF IT IS GOING TO BE ON THERE IT SHOULD WORK WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SMALL THING S LIKE CELL PHONE'S, ALSO THE CRAFTSMANSHIP CAN IT BE RIDEN? I FAVOR WOLVERINE BECAUSE I SEE HOW IT COULD BE RIDEN, PROPHECY I SEE A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN, ALSO THAT IS WHY I LIKE WOLVERINE BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS MOUNTED AND IF YOU NEEDED TO PROVE IT (WHICH IS NOT OFTEN) THEN AT LEAST IT'S ACCESSABLE AND MAKES SENSE.

THANKS.

THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE IN MIND WHEN WE ADD THINGS......TO MAKE IT OPERABLE. NO SENSE IN ADDING IT IF IT CAN'T BE USED.

I HAVE SEEN THAT STAMP, BUT LIKE IN HOUSTON A COUPLE OF US SHARED ELECTRICITY AND ONLY THE GUY THAT ACTUALLY PAID GOT HIS CARD STAMPED BUT WE ALL PUT IN ON IT.

SOME GET AWAY WITH THAT, BUT PEOPLE LIKE ME AND YOU SHOULDN'T TAKE THOSE KINDA CHANCES, WHEN YOU HAVE DUMPED SO MUCH AND HAVE COME SO FAR FOR ONE JUDGE TO FINALLY ENFORCE THINGS, LAST YEAR IN VEGAS THE JUDGE CAME BY EXCLUSIVLY WHILE I WAS THERE TO CHECK ON IT. BUT HEY WHATEVER, IT'S ALL COMP!!!! YOU (MEANING EVERYONE) DECIDE HOW YOU WANT TO PLAY YOUR HAND.

I FEEL WHAT YOU ARE SAYING WIMONE ABOUT THE ELECTRICITY.IF YOU PAY $65.00 (LV) FOR IT THEN EVERYONE SHOULD THAT IS ONLY FAIR AND I KNOW THAT LRM HAS NO CONTROL OF THE PRICE FOR THAT BUT IF THEY PUT IT IN THERE RULE BOOK THEY SHOULD ENFORCE IT. NOW IF YOU WERE UP BOTY AND SOME PROTEST YOU ON YOUR BIKE HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT.

THAT HAPPENED TO US AND TO BE HONEST THE THING THAT BOTHERED US OR ME AT LEAST WAS THAT IT WAS A STUPID REASON. I MEAN LIKE THEY WERE JUST TRYING TO FIND WAY FOR US NOT TO COMPETE. NOT EVEN ABOUT OPERABILITY.

WHY DO YOU THINK PEOPLE WANT TO PULL THIS CARD?(HATERS OR SCARED)

I THINK PART OF HAS TO BE FEAR.........I MEAN IF YOU DIDN'T THINK THE BIKE COULD BEAT YOU WHY WOULD YOU CARE IF IT COMPETED OR NOT?
