I see what you are saying. It was a blast back in my my days as a street punk. We would ride every wednesday night and sunday afternoon slowing down traffic so we could wheelie. But the media put sooo much heat on us everybody just stopped riding together on those nites and days because it was too hot. So it did stop but it didn't slow down the number of sportbikes on the street it just stopped the thing that noonee seems to like on this board anyways. See what I am saying?

I disagree. I think they are. Stunt - unusual or daring feat. I always thought that highspeed wheelie are more of a daring feat that the slow stuff in a parking lot. Both are unusual but hwy stuff is alot more daring. Wouldn't you say?

How about some intelligent thought about it?

Hmm 'cages' vs Bikes... pure #'s.

Yep, irritating 'cager's sure helps in making them think about how their driving habits impact riders.

Road rage is an issue as is, we as a community don't need to be adding to the , and I don't want to have to deal with some off cop, or arsewipe on wheels because some dipshit on two-wheels was acting an .





...personaly the whole stupid 'cager' vs 'rider' thing is a crock unless
you ride nothing but two wheels.

Do you need to review the definition of a stunt again? How is a wheelie not a a stunt. I bet have the people on this board can't ride a wheelie much less a freeway wheelie.

Again look at the definition of a stunt unusual and daring. I mean no offense dude but parking lot stunters when they crash and they crash alot don't get hurt so again not too daring imo.

You make a good point there. I was in a truck coming back from the supercross in houston and such a pretty day sunday man I couldn't wait to get out and get on a bike. But I don't mind caging in the rain.

XDL is March 22 for those on here that think there standup wheelies make them a stunt rider

sorry bill, i'd have to admit, freeway wheelies are not very challenging...and doesn't involve much skill.

the parking lot stuff however takes a lot of skill, and not anybody can go out and stunt like them.

You are right it does take more skill on what they do in parking lots. But it is still not as "daring" as freeway stuff. And I don't agree about the skill involved for a freeway wheelie. I bet 75% of this board can't do freeway wheelies. That is more that 3/4 of the riders here so there must be some skill to it wouldn't you say?

I think its safe to say that most people here (myself included) have done some pretty stupid stuff on the road at some point...

If I pass you doing 100+mph in a corner (or I'm stuntin'), and I wreck, and you laugh, I can't blame you for that. I do something stupid and I just might pay the consequence...

And public perception is a huge deal, like it or not. I even have a bad outlook on riders in general, AND I RIDE! We at Motohouston are in our own little world... just because most of us are somewhat knowledgeable/skilled at riding doesn't mean the majority of riders are!

Just go to your favorite dealer on a Saturday and "people watch"... you oughtta be scared tless at some of the clowns that buy bikes!
