[QUOTE=obed;3050974]stunting and racing do not belong on public steets.
the freedom we have in this country is there, but it is not something you can claim you are using when you do this kind of stuff, you can do what ever you want on private property, but to do this kind of stuff on public roads is not an exercise of your rights, it is a violation of the rights of the public...
this kind of does not warrant repect, it does warrant ridicule, for the stupid it is...[/QUOT


We all pay taxes which go towards the roads so if somebody want to pull a wheelie I say go for it and if u eat ur its on u is it not a right to ride or drive however we please but if ur caught then u get cited.

There are only two types of people in this world. Those who can wheelie and those that wish they could. That is all.

there are those who can wheelie and know the proper place to do it...part of being an adult as opposed to showing a lack of maturity, is not only knowing what you can do, but when and where you should do it...

well, in truth, even at 61 years old, I will not claim to be mature at all times...

Yep, not allowed to ride them anywhere.
All mine are within the speed limits.

on private property... either your own, or with the permission of whoever owns the property...
that is also the proper place for all racing or stunting... the public roads are not the place for any of those activities...
paying taxes or tolls to help build and maintain public roads does not entitle us to do what ever we want on those roads... there are speed limits and agreed upon safe driving practices that are intended to keep us safer...
drivers licensing is a means to show that one knows the rules of the roads and has shown competency in handling of a motor vehicle before being allowed to use those public roads... it is a privilidge and not a right...
on private property you can do what you want with what you own...
I can not say that I have always driven in a mature legal way.... I have at times been an immature self centered too...

my front tire was low... so a friend put helium instead of air as a joke...
