Hmmmmm Movie? Baltimore disrespect?

Post by Bork » Mon Oct 12, 2020 11:11 am

Hmm What do y'all think. Agree on the part about needing somewhere to ride, but I saw some short clips of the group doing wheelies down the street. My impression has been, these wheelie groups disrespect the law & actually taunt cops, almost like I dare you to stop us. They are not street legal bikes, and they don't stop for law, maybe because the bike is probably stolen, right? I feel like this is glorifying ill-legal activity. I dont know, :shrug: , is my thinking warped? BUT the movie industry might entertain because it grabs attention and thus a profit, they could care less about the ramification on society.

Hooligans. They practice wheelies not too far from me in Burtonsville. They then block off the roads and stunt. We suspect most are stolen of course. The cops have caught a few of them. I'm terrified to let anyone in my neighborhood see I have bikes. I would honestly like all their helmet less heads to end up like smashed pumpkins on the street. F-em all.

Do I seem bitter?

Even if the bikes are not stolen, its pretty much ALL illegal activity. Riding on streets w/out any regard for traffic law/safety.

This just makes all motorcyclist/dirtbike riders look bad.

I have been on US50 coming out of DC just past the arboretum when 10-15 of em', including 3 on quads blasted onto 50 and caused all kinds of problems and near accidents. Flying between cars and running from the police. While I agree it is stupid and they should be arrested, innocent people end up getting hurt in the process of chasing and such. The city is try to at least get it all to one area so maybe less innocent people are effected. Personally,I would like to see them chased and arrested and the property recovered. If they happen to crash and bash their heads on the ground, so be it----

Just no way to "look cool" and do anything reasonably safe to rider and public. Even if a location was established it would not be used. No cops chasing them = no fun. Must admit some have balance skills that I would love to have.

^ This. A designated spot would be just used to practice / learn the craft... then go be an ass elsewhere.
Do taxpayers provide practice areas for other illegal activities? (don't answer. Its Baltimore. I already know the answer)

I agree, I don't think it's the right thing to do, but that is the idea behind it, kinda like bribery and treaties, they don't really ever work-
