However, if you would read the posts, you would have already known that everyone thinks they need to take that kind of stuff off the streets. Doing wheelies down a public sidewalk? C'mon man! Lord protect us from these streets? Really, how can they ask for protection when it is them in fact that is causing the mayhem.

And you are right. However, I have never posted anything of myself racing. I, just as you did, and everyone else, has and does exceed the speed limit. I do not put innocent people life at risk. That is wreckless

I used to ride w/some of those guys in NY. About 80% of those bikes were someone elses. We rode from Huntspoint to Jones beach...rougly 100+....by the time we got back it was maybe 50+...the rest wiped out or got arrested for something.

Dogs and other animals can be 'talented' or 'skilled', it doesn't mean their intelligent, as we've surmised.
It takes cognitive ability to understand the difference between admiring skill and commenting on recklessness.

O.K., I'm going out come from left field with this one:

I know quite a few Ruff Ryders. By and large they are a good bunch.

Like any group they have a few bad apples, but name a group that doesn't.

While I don't agree with where they're doing some of the stunts, most of them were taped largely using blocking vehicles to keep most bystanders out of the way.

IMO, anytime any of us open up a bike on the road, we have the potential to put an innocent bystanders life in danger.

Whether it's Grandma backing out of the driveway onto some deserted country road, or people in cross town traffic.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not mitigating what's on the video, or endorsing street stunting in general.

It's just real hard to point the finger, when we're cracking 130mph on a road marked for 45mph on a regular basis.

Granted, there's less exposure to others, but it's still there.

Anyone who thinks otherwise is just fooling themselves.


My 2 cents, as always YMMV

Ahhh, you tell me how dragging a knee on an empty mountain road is comparable to doing wheelies on a sidewalk. I actually liked thier stunting. I still stand by the fact that they should do it off the street. I have never implied that I am not guilty of doing stupid stuff, but the point I was trying to make is how can they ask for blessing when they cause the trouble.

I'm sure the people who live on the roads we tear up weekly aren't overly fond of us either.
, I get when some soccer mom in her Excursion comes roaring up my street, and am vocal about it!

Believe me, I'm guilty of it all, including some highway wheelies before I lost a couple of friends doing it,
I still ride "aggessively" pretty regularly, albeit not in traffic.

No, it's not the EXACT same as stunting on the street, the exposure is less and the impact on the general publics perception isn't as widespread.

But if it isn't in the same house, it's in the same neighborhood, if not right next door!

I'm not condoning what they're doing by any means, however, I used to say a few words asking for protection to myself before we'd go street race on Wednesday nights, speeds approaching 170 on I-10 in New Orleans.

You can't fault someone for asking for protection before they put themselves in harms way, it's human nature.

When I was in the Army, we used to say a prayer before we went on patrol or on an op, even though our clear intention was to put ourselves into harms way and to kill someone.

IMO, the only person that can really point a finger at any of this is Paniro, because he no longer street rides at all, or a rider who obeys all of the laws all of the time.

I know I'm splitting hairs here, but it is what it is.

Prodigy and some of the older stunters are intelligent enough to realize that if you keep doing it on the street, sooner or later you'll wind up in a bad situation, so they pretty much moved it to the parking lot.

The only way to try to curtail it is by trying to talk reasonably to the people who are doing it and point out the consequences that can happen.

Trust me, bad mouthing them will only make polarize them and make them more likely to NOT consider their actions, until it's too late.


Ant,
I'll deal with you tomorrow! :laughing6
