    What a bunch of dorks. It really is BS that they do that crap on the street. I guess the fact that they could wreck and cause some poor soccer mom to swerve & lose it and injure heself and or kiddos is ok as long as they have their fun.

    We made a guy today that was doing that crap and lost in a parking lot.. I had to laugh to myself everytime he screamed when we moved his broken arm.

    Hey... I guess it just comes with being a "bad boy on a bike" .. bi-atch.

    I did love the wreck at the end.. it could have used some more of those. :cool1: As long as it only involves the dork on the bike, then it's pretty much seen as job security to me.

    A win-win-win situation?







    There is a place I deliver to that is on a dead end street outside of town and through the summer the motorcycle stunt guys play there. It's quite fun to watch since they are mostly novices and crash often.

    So is PA... they still do it... Where I used to work I constantly had riders ripping by on one wheel. Its a long straight stretch. But lots of cars pull out on it, its a very stupid thing to be doing on that stretch.

    4 mins of video. 2 wrecks. Looks like the guy at the light was right about leathers. The crazy thing is that if one of us were to run one of them over b/c he was being stupid and riding on one wheel on the highway, the oversize vehicle would be blamed in the media. "Monster truck kills motorcycle rider":mad:

    Yeah, it can be pretty hard to get everything said the way you want sometimes without sitting here typing all night ... but...

    First off, why does the soccer mom have to "non paying attention"? I'll paint the picture a little different, to convey what I mean..

    In the vid you see some guy running down what looks like a highway.. riding a wheely the whole way.. now, if he were to "lose it" and hit the ground, and the bike traveled across the road, into oncoming traffic, and endo'ed through the windshield of an oncoming car, I would not call that a "non paying attention" situation. It may happen too fast for the other driver to react. The way you're painting it, if it were my wife and kids, and they were killed.. it would be my wifes fault?

    I mean.. the guy on the bike was just having a little fun, so it's the other persons fault if they get killed right?


    As for being mean about these guys on bikes getting hurt.... you play, you pay. I rode bulls back in HS and I had my share of owies.. but it came with the territory... and I didn't expect someone to fawn all over me if I got hurt. But, at least when i came off the bull... it didn't have to potential to wipe out some innocent family who was minding their own buisness.

    I have about as much respect for these guys who do this crap on the public streets, as I do for drug dealers.

    And, to answer your first question point blank... yes, soccer moms deserve to live more than the kid on the bike. When soccer moms start doing 80 mph down the freeway... while standing on the hood of their SUV's, then they too will earn my disrespect.
