OK, Lets's take this a bit deeper.

Sure there are assholes in that bunch. No one can condone driving on a sidewalk, wheelies or dangerous swerving.

The sensationalist news media is trying to scare the populace with terms like "almost hitting a pedestrian and child"..... Um, the pedestrians were in front of the police truck, and in no danger of being hit by a bike unless they had their eyes and ears closed.

Also, during a "group ride", of which I do many times a year for all sorts of "benefits", such as Wounded Warrior, Police Benevolent Association, Battered Women Awareness, etc. We ALWAYS block traffic to keep the group together through lights, stop signs, etc. We are told to do this BY THE POLICE, and are often assisted by them in this matter, because it is better to keep the group as a unit then to have to deal with the "Cagers" that can't deal with more than one bike sharing the road with them.

I am not saying there are not assholes out there, but before you CONDEMN the whole group, THINK about what you are seeing. The talking head on the TV is there more to get you to watch the commercials than they are there to report the "news".

If it were a bunch of TW guys, how would you feel? Anything negative against ALL MOTORCYCLES is bad for US. The only thing to do, is to not condone such behavior. No, there shouldn't be more laws. That is just bullshit. Laws don't stop people from doing anything.

The kneejerk reaction to "make a law" after something happens only effects the people who abide by laws.
Beware of those people who choose to let the government take freedoms because they cannot be bothered to teach their kids properly.

^^^ on that we agree S~B...too damn many laws, sadly the ones they are not enforcing are mostly from stopping Illegals from crossing the border and voting...{not to get political}...as far as these guys, they look like mostly crotch, or is it crouch{?} ;) rocket folks, being pains in the ass. In Arizona, there are plenty of wide open spaces to group ride out of the city....these folks might want to try that instead of abusing the streets and the rights of others to travel safe.

I agree totally. Too bad it is impossible to "like" something to a value of 110 percent. (not to get political or anything,,,)

Should have busted a cap in one of their asses, and I'll guarantee you that would have got them to think twice about doing it again....{and Hell no, I'm not kidding} These a~holes were not just out having fun, they were endangering lives, not just their own.

Shoot one and you go to prison. Law enforcement agencies are almost totally incompetent at protecting society, which is exactly why various groups of a$$wipes, from gangstas and outlaws on motorcycles to New Black Panthers outside voting locations, to Republican and Democrat political parties, violate laws with near impunity. Everyone, and I mean everyone, fits in to one of two groups: 1) those who choose moral behavior when nobody is looking, and 2) those who don't. Those who don't do not because they can get away with it. Amendment 2 provides the first with the right and responsibility to deal with the second, but law enforcement has to step into the middle and harass the first for doing its constitutional duty to protect itself. Thus, law enforcement is part of the second. Sorry, LEOs out there, but the occupation has evolved into procedures bent more strongly on closing cases than on determining truth, providing justice, or protect or serving anyone other than the providers of officers' paychecks. Many modern law enforcement procedures have been ruled unconstitutional on the grounds of violation of inalienable rights and/or those enumerated in the Constitution and its Amendments, but allowed to remain in effect because such procedures provide for the expedient closing of cases. As long as policies that violate inalienable and/or enumerated rights are allowed to remain in affect for the purpose of expediently closing cases, then law enforcement officials are reduced to the role of overseer, and citizens are reduced to the role of slaves. It is way past time for law enforcement officials to take a close look at the procedures of which each serves as a cog in the machinery, and ferret out the procedures that violate each official's pledge to defend and protect the Constitution.
