Okay, let me get this straight. A video of people going slow you guys consider boring and lame. But if a video is posted of a "real" 610 run you guys call them idiots and they need to take it to the track. Seems a bit hypocritical to me. The only middle ground i can think of that would please the MH crowd is videos of Tmax commuting.
+1, would love to see Tmax commuting. That's the kind of video I hope for when I come to MH. :P

I don't think all the negative folks even share the same reason for the comments. For me personally, I won't speak for the others who were a little negative on it, it's not the ride. I'm not saying that they should be riding like hooligans out there either. People ride their way and it might not be the safest, but I'm not going to waste my time nitpicking every aspect. Some on here will though.

But there wasn't much in the video that warranted an extended video. By all means take the video, but if you want it to be interesting don't make people watch 10 minutes of boredom for 30 secs worth of something interesting. My normal hour long commute is not something that I need to post a video about unless there was something interesting that happened at some point. If that's the case then I'll cut the video down to whatever section was of note and share that.

You have to remember that the ride is fun when you're actually on the bike. If you're watching the video it's really not that exciting. I was more interested in finding out why the cops were there at the beginning of the video. That could have added something to the video. That's my gripe. Others have their own.

I criticize a track video of how lame it is. The mods delete my posts.

On the other hand, this type of ride the mods lets the "real" posers bash away.

Btw my commuting does rock a little. But im not a "hey look at me" kinda guy.

It was a gripe about the type of ride and riders. I for one think its awesome they took up the whole highway. Good for them.

What is motohouston about?

Is it to help new riders, help someone in need of help with his or her bike,set up runs and meet up?

Or is it a place where people just talk ?

We are on here for the love of two wheels, let's not forget that.

Heard they were filming the sequel to biker boyz in houston. Glad they finally started production because the first film really sucked.

It was hosted by a stunt group. It was pretty fun and was rather a large turnout. The video doesn't do much justice but overall everyone had a good time. They were going slow because some of the stunters were doing wheelies at the front.
