Ricers were called ricers long before most of you were born. At one time Americans still felt the affects of Pearl Harbor and didn't like the idea of having Japanese autos and bikes sold in America. Vietnam veterans and especially bikers gave Americans a piece of their mind about it. Patriots expressed their feelings and made statements, some like bikers by hanging and burning Jap bikes and destroying cars (ricers) for fun at exibitions. That's when and why the name ricer started, not because they were slow. Kids today that call them ricers have no idea where it came from and why. It's nothing to do with it looking like a fart can with a go wing.
