That's pretty funny, are you sure it's true? I've heard nothing but good things about the guy... Maybe you're getting some outrageous rumors too?

I'm sorry but as much as I don't like his whole pimp image or whatever it is, Ricky has always been the nicest guy in the world. He always has little kids swarming around him & his latest (super hot) lady friend. He never tells them to piss off or to leave him alone. From what I can tell he is a genuinely nice guy. I doubt he'd say something like that unless he was messing with the kid. Besides how many Hyperlite shirts can one GB rider sign?

Ryan- I know Ricky and he and his crew have tied up with us at Nacie back in the narrows on several trips and he is just an ordinary person who has been friendly to all of the people I have seen come up and meet him. Then again we all have bad days!

Sounds to me like someone is a little jealous of someone else's popularity, and has nothing better to do, but make attempts at ruining that persons reputation.


Ryan, that's not pointed at you, I'm talking about the person who told you that.

Get to know Ricky and you'll find out that the guy is super nice. Don't hate the player hate the game.

"Don't hate the player hate the game."
You've got to be kidding with that comment.

Hey, really, none of us where there. Everyone can say Ricky G is a cool guy, but does anyone here REALLY know him? Or did you hang out with him for one day so he's an awesome guy??? Maybe he is. But maybe just for one instance he was a Dck! Is it so hard to beleive? Most of the time I'm a nice guy, but sometimes I'm an happens.

And I assure you I'm not "Player hating."

I have known Ricky for years and he has always taken the time and been nothing but gracious to kids. Maybe the statement was taken out of context.

I kinda like his image. Hey he is just being himself. Whats the saying "don't judge a book by its cover". The guy can ride and represents our sport with some integrity. If it is true I think it is a good addition to the team.

I've know RG since late '96...he even had my boat in his driveway in canyon for a summer back in '98 or was it 99? doesn't matter...! i will always give him the benifit of the doubt!It seems every year someone trys to throw him under the bus! ...i have never seen him do anything negative when it comes to fans...maybe if your an x girlfriend you might have some crap to say...i wasn't there to hear what he really said but i highly doubt it was as bad as you say ryan...maybe the kid was rude to ricky first?

This is a funny thread. "HATERS" I just got back from the 06 GB catalog shoot and Ricky was in rare form. He has been training hard at Canyon lake and riding well. I have also know Ricky for years and his "Image" has nothing to do with his character. He is a father and a stand up guy. Ricky has taken all the Jr's and regional youth GB riders under his wing and really showed these kids what it takes to make it in this industry. Not to many veterans would have taken the time with these kids like Ricky did.

Wait till you see the new line up for 2006. GB is blowing up!

Ricky is one of the nicest guys, I've been friends wth the guy for along time and I've never seen him be mean or rude to any fans especially little kids, dont let the look fool you he's a really nice guy, loves kids and family, so you must of heard wrong, I dont think Ricky would have done that....
