I understand there's a movie in the works about motorcycle messengers. I red about it in a British bike mag.

Paper? Well who would have ever thought it! All my years in D.C., I thought those guys on bikes with backpacks were drug dealers. Call 'em on their cell phone, and they deliver the **** to you.

In DC they are drug dealers. Don't worry though, the police won't bust them. They work at Mr. Barry's office...

Default I'll blame the messenger....

...for putting the rest of us riders in a bad light.



"He seems to regard traffic laws, one-way streets and traffic signals as mere abstractions for other, non-motorcycle messenger people."



Yes, lets glorify this behavior......and do we really wonder why a lot of non-motorcyclists hate us.

I've got more patience with these guys than I do with those Iron Butt dorks who use public roads for endurance contests....

Default Let's overreact, shall we?

I wasn't trying to glorify Rick's riding style, just trying to report it accurately, which is my job, I think. I also gave the perspective of two other messengers who ride more sanely.



Breaking the law is bad, but we all do it. It's just a matter of degree. Some non-motorcyclists are going to disapprove of what we do no matter what.

With stunts like this is it any wonder that cops and the public think the average motorcyclist is an idiot.
