BulletProof Vs. Bloodweiser

Going to let you guys in on probably the best idea I've ever been a part of.

Two old buddies decided to create a contest.
One that would stretch a lifetime.
Who can put together the better Yammy 2 stroke.


How will we decide who's bike is actually better?
Well, by an arbitrary point system of course.



Here's what we have so far.
Green points are available to anyone at anytime.
Yellow points are only awarded once for each contestant.
Red points are for whoever reaches that point first.


Purchase Price
  • +1 point for every dollar UNDER $500
  • -1 point for every dollar OVER $500
  1. Purchase Price - subsection 1: If the bike was bought in baskets:
  • Frame = 100 points
  • Motor Top End = 100 points
  • Motor Bottom End = 100 points
  • Front End = 50 points
  • Tank = 50 points
  • Seat = 25 points
  • Wiring harness = 25 points
  • Wheels = 25 points each
  • Carburetors = 25 points each

Mods:

  1. Modifying a stock part = 35 points
  2. Installing a custom part = 50 points
  3. Frame cutting = 40 points

New Parts
  1. Frame = 100 points
  2. Motor Top End = 100 points
  3. Motor Bottom End = 100 points
  4. Front End = 50 points
  5. Tank = 50 points
  6. Seat = 25 points
  7. Wiring harness = 25 points
  8. Wheels = 25 points each
  9. Carburetors = 25 points each
  10. Tires = 50 points each
  11. Other (not listed) = 10 points


Superficial: For a paint job to be awarded points, it must remain for a period of 3 months.

  • Tank = 100 points
  • Side Covers = 50 points
  • Fender(s) = 25 each
  • Powdercoating = 50 points an item.
  • chrome = fuck chrome.




Firsts:

  1. First Bike Started = 150 points
  2. First to 200 miles = 300 points
  3. First horn beep = 15 points
  4. Bike Road Legal Registered, Insured and Inspected. = 100 points
  5. 45 second unassisted idle = 100 points
  6. Wheelie Documentation = 250 points
  7. Speeding Ticket = 69 Points
  8. Documented Burnout: Dirt = 25 points / Pavement = 35 points

Things that will continually be bested
  • highest speed = 100 points
  • best mpg = 25 points
  • worst mpg = 25 points
  • brake distance = 75 points
  • lightest bike = 100 points
  • rattiest (I think ratty is going to be a point heavy category for awhile) = 4 points
  • longest wheelie = 100 points

TAXES
in order to try and keep this contest, well competitive
and not just a race to empty wallets.

Used parts = +1 point for every dollar under $100
New Parts = -1 point for every dollar over $100

*10/29/11
"but what we decided was any $$ spent to get the bike running (initially)
would not be counted against anyone.
Upgrades not included. Stock replacement parts only.
So we created a window of opportunity,
to at least get our bikes running. "





And what do the points mean?
At the end of every calendar year, points will be evaluated and the individual with the LOWEST number of points has to buy the motoGP video pass for the upcoming season. We are also working out the possibility of a trophy in which the winner will hold in his possession for the entire year (if anyone has a trophy with a motorcycle on it and would like to donate it, please inquire within)

That's right folks. This is just the initial phase of this lifelong contest.
Each year we hope to surmise completely moronic ways to best each other.


Some future subcontests:
  • Drag Racing
  • Technical Course
  • Highest top speed
  • Best (and worst) MPG
  • People's choice award (that's where you come in )
  • Lightest Bike
  • Endurance contest
  • brake distance

Now, while we have wasted too much time on this already -
we still haven't got all the bugs worked out of our system.
At this stage I'd like you to kindly offer suggestions for
other ways to score points,
point out any loopholes we may have created,
and yell at us and tell us to hurry up and shit.
