The best bet is to attempt to embarass the ****-offs until they stop. Thats really the only recourse. However, making a cute little list here doesn't accomplish that. You gotta call them out.

No, it means attempting to handle or address it, without doing anything that could get yourself arrested. Obviously if the other party is stupid/obstinate/resistant enough, then yes the cops might need to be called. Fine, be proactive yourself and do it...instead of leaving it for the management etc.
You can call and report disturbing the peace, reckless/dangerous behaviour...and if you've got 3-4+ of you as witness'es.
It might go somewhere beyond just being blown off. Letting it escalate to a fight does no good and only creates more of a bad image and problems.

People who go there WANT to be seen. I can personally not give a fvck if you look at me or not. I won't be there. I bought my bike to ride.
Maybe this is Because no one likes to look at you? Im dead sexy so Its all good at pp1 for me.

I'm not suggesting letting it escalate to a fight. I used to have to deal with this kind of bullshit were I used to cruise in Oklahoma. We had permission from the landowner for my mustang club to park in a lot. Shitbags would park there too, and leave their trash everywhere and basically **** off. I literally started scolding the mongrels and they either straightened up........or left. No fights, and no police. Cuz if you're going to call the cops for anything..........they're kicking everyone out, not just the perp.

I get you... I was suggesting, that it might help to offer suggestions on how to approach the, issues with those causing them in a manner w/o initiating/leading to conflict... and if it all seems to be failing, then contact the police instead of letting to devolve into physical conflict.

Since everyone is camera happy and film happy these days, why doesn't anyone start filming the turds that are causing trouble and post them here?
Just a thought.

Because those acting like turds likely don't post here, and consequentially they'll think you're enjoying what they're doing.

#2 - Burnouts are not only a similarly silly thing, but have the real problem of being a little dangerous. Brake slips out from under your fingers and someone is getting hurt. Stop it.

#3 - Is it REALLY so hard to keep to the 4 to a space rule?

#4 - Just as we get pissy with cagers who dont pay attention in parking lots, I've seen a lot of us do the same thing. Give them some room - and the same courtesy you expect.

#5 - Pick up your trash.

#6 - Stop blocking the doors.

#7 - It isnt just the sport bike guys - a lot of the more noticeable noise comes out of the cruiser crowd. Loud pipes do sound nice, but not EVERYONE wants to hear them all the time. Bear in mind also that low frequencies travel further than higher ranges. Its off the people in the condos and hotels too.

In short - the owner's right. We're being . Tone it down, act like adults and try to not clog the parking lot before 9pm and he probably wont have an issue. Keep it up - and he's going to start having people towed and arrested in a couple weeks.

Idea!

Why dont yall go to PP1 and relay everything said, to the bikers that are there.

I have found, that most of the people there are not active on MH....so the liklihood of them seeing this, are slim. And if they did, wouldnt persuade them anyway.
