so... im going to play devil advocate here for a second. so please dont fly off the handle here at me but i do present to you a few counter points, purely in the name of FRIENDLY DEBATE OK?
first of all, everyone of us has to fight to ride mopeds. fight for your place on the road, fight for parts, fight to stay legal. its a never ending battle.
i dont think ive met a mopeder yet that hasnt done something completely illegal, at least here in SF. been on roads they are CLEARLY not supposed to be on, highways, bridges, etc. going waaaay to fast through town, running stop signs/lights, driving dangerously. its all part of the thrill is it not?
who hasnt run from the cops? every week i hear stories of mopeders evading the police, because they did/are doing something they shouldn't/illegal. round gets caught and now your gonna put him on the cross?
what kind of subculture tiptoes around the man?
as for riding drunk, dont even go there guys, you all know better than to flame someone for that. i see this every single ride. or at the very least, a little drunk.
swarm and destroy, is clearly a battle cry, a statement of defiance to the status quo. dont take it back.
mopeders are getting tickets everyday, for doing something they KNOW they shouldnt, wether it be bad plates, no plates, speeding, whatever. kinda unfair to jump round
YES i agree totally about hit and run being on the other shoe. if it was a car hitting a bike i would be outraged.
LISTEN, I LOVE ALL OF YOU, IM NOT LOOKIN FOR A FIGHT HERE OK? PLEASE! just a few counterpoints that i think are valid. i have to stand up and defend a fellow sunset rider, as would any other member if thier bro was under attack. but i say these things NON CONFRONTATIONAL OK? DONT BLOW YOUR TOP, I LOVE YOU TOO!
