Actually more absurd than funny, but it is comical to think this guy thought folks would just gladly do it.
New guy on a riding forum posted the message below. As you can imagine it didn't go over very well. Years back someone did the same thing here trying to get money to by a V to "show his wife" but that too went over like a lead balloon.
My name is Joey. I live in Stanley, NC.
Iíve always been extremely interested in motorcycles, preferably street bikes. I always told myself when I turned 18, thatís the first thing I wanted to get as a vehicle. Things happened, plans changed. I was blessed with an amazing son (18 years old) and couldnít get a street bike.
Working a part-time/full-time job(35-40hrs/wk) have a nice truck, but I still wanted to live my dream and get a street bike, but currently do not have the money. I didnít want to wait until tax time this year to start looking for a bike, so I started this fund.
The fund is to help me raise enough money to buy a street-bike. This street bike is going to a beginners bike, of course so itís probably not going to cost that much, but every penny that is donated helps.
I want to get into things like group rides, and things like that but I need the important thing first, THE BIKE.

Every Penny Counts! Thanks Guys!
Sorry if I broke any of the forum rules. If so, just close the thread. Thanks again guys."
