"Instead, we use our resources to defend our rights to ride helmetless, violate basic noise ordinances, and basically act like 2 yr. olds."



F&ck yeah! I can't think of a way to better use those resources. There was a reason that the Euros immigrated here in the first place, and it wasn't because they were having any fun over there.

Default Unicycle

Don't think of a motorcycle on just the front wheel as a Stoppie, or just on the back wheel as a Wheelie, think of it as a Unicycle. Nobody has a problem with a clown on a unicycle now do they.

A couple of years ago a bunch a knuckleheads were stunting in Omaha (illegally). One of the guys wiped out and killed a bystander. The dude filming for the stunters was an off-duty cop. He was in big trouble.

Stunt competitions are already going mainstream, and some of the teams that used to be street-based have moved over to the legitimate and legal groups.



You can - and should - still marginalize the "extremists" though. Just like street racing should be marginalized while at the same time promoting sanctioned racing. And just like street racing will never go away, street stunting will not either. Not marginalizing them is an implicit acceptance of what they do, and that paints us all in a bad light. Addressing it properly, though, can help promote a (more) positive public opinion.

The bigger deal everyone makes of it, the harder they try to drive this stuff underground, and the more laws they put in place to stop it, will only result in more and more kids drawn to it. Pi$$ing off 'The Man' is what it's all about here. Use quiet prosecution with zero publicity, and this thing will die a quiet death. Use the old 'War Against Stunters' and this stuff will take off like you won't believe.

The bystander should have known to stand back a little more.

"all acted in an exemplary fashion" – according to whose definition? All of us are suspect, regardless of how we act.

I am also a bicyclist. I live in a city where a certain sub group of bicyclists seem to take pride in ignoring traffic rules. There is a hue and cry to bring them into line. Frankly, they irritate me as well - even when I am on my bicycle. I agree that the generally unwashed masses over generalize about motorcyclists and others that act differently from them. It seems that if a person engages in activity that is different from the individual that individual concludes that the participant is "wrong."
