You ride like a dumb ass, you crash like a dumb ass, your dumb ass deserved it. Thats why I keep it on the track. My Vmax now has a dead battery b/c I do not want to ride the street anymore mainly b/c of inattentive drivers (texting, etc, drunk, whatever) and young show offs that pay the dumb ass penalty of being stooopid.

Not that I am aware-of!

The irresponsible riders around here use MLK Day, Labor Day and other holidays to stage 'stuntah' exhibitions. Last Labor Day I was four blocks from home, on an arterial US route, and suddenly two 'stuntahs' burst-out of a side street, riding a dirtbike and a quad, against traffic, they both were heading directly for my seat in my truck, and at the last instant, they went peeling around me on opposite sides. It all happened in about 3-4 seconds, and I thought for sure they were both going to end up on my hood.

I saw the next day in the paper that a multi-jurisdictional PD/ Sheriff's office/FL Highway Patrol sweep got dozens of them, they used a couple of 'wolf-packs' to shut-down the road in-front of and behind the large group of quads and motorcyclists. They even had a police chopper and other individual PD cars outside of the main choke-points, to catch the ones who were running. They confiscated bikes, quads, and threw the lot in jail, including the occupants in cars and trucks that were accompanying them as they blazed through the streets in the Miami FL metro area.

Exactly. If I was riding behind him, we'd have a serious talk...

Those are not riders/ motorcyclist, they are clowns that give real motorcyclist a bad name.

Unfortunately, there are squids that think riding like a moron is "cool". And they're everywhere. Eventually karma bites most of them in the ass, and they wind up in the hospital getting patched up. Hopefully no innocent person gets tangled up in the foolishness..

I can't believe they can get them back! You get your dirt bike or quad confiscated for that kind of shit around here and you better kiss it goodbye. I recall they crushed a shit ton of them in NY last year.
