Just lost any possibility of business from me.

Too bad cops won't get on YouTube and issue citations based on this video

Ghetto = trashy = lack of class...which is EXACTLY what this video demonstrates.

like this is why a lot of the general public doesn't like motorcycles. If they don't like bikes, why the should they care enough to watch out for us in traffic? When they see or hear about a rider going down, how many of them will be thinking, "He must have been doing something stupid...just like those guys in front of that shop on Richmond the other day."

Not that I would go all the way over there anyway, but I'm definitely going to spread the word to avoid that place.

5 posts since 2007? My guess is that you are affiliated with that shop and only got on the forum today to see what we've been saying. No point in us stopping by since you've read it on here.

Enjoy the video, if you don't like it go back to your facebook page.
Well..... This is kinda our facebook...

You just maybe didn't know enough that videos like that will not get much love from the site...Just sayin...

Also, was that at the Peek of all the people there? seemed pretty empty of bikes, saw mostly cars...Next time you guys should see about maybe a location where stunters can stunt a little more, like in a parking lot I much rather see the bikes than a car or T-Rex.

Actually, we socialize plenty outside the forum... Just last night we had a meet that had about 100 bikes out there(no bikiny girls, or carwash or free bbq) Just people enjoying conversation and food. Gave away some 50% track days in hopes of promoting safe riding... Tonight a few more people are getting together and visiting a fallen rider, others to enjoy some hooka...

This Saturday a big bulk of the community is going to MSRH with Ride Smart Motorcycle school to sharpen our riding and cornening skills. In the hopes that will make us safer more alert riders...Specially on the street.

Did I mention that we are also having a huge BBQ and free parade laps for people coming up to the MSRH Track? Because that's also going on...

O wait We also have weekly wednesday night meets and morning rides...

There is a guy on here taking it upon himself to teach new people that are not comfortable with riding corners, becomes more familiar and hopefully learn something. Actually you might wanna try that, only saying cuz it soundlike th typw of rider that REALLY enjoy only riding in a staright line. (If I'm wrong then I'm wrong)

So, thank you for your offer to stay on here, I will.

What will you do?
