    Post Sport Bikers Shut Down Highway, Do Stunts. Police Can Only Watch.

    It happened in Texas last weekend. In Dallas, a group of sport bike riders want to pay tribute to 2 fallen buddies. They block traffic on 75 Central Expressway, do tricks, paint the highway. Police officers show up but can only watch bikers escape because of a strict department chase policy. Reaction of bikers who saw this video is almost unanimously negative, stating rightly that there are other ways to honor their fallen friends (group ride, charity event, etc) without giving such a public negative image of bikers. Police say that motorcyclists involved are obstructing the roadway, which is a class B misdemeanor, and that they are reviewing the video to try to identify the participants.

    Hahahahaha
    You might be like, I'm confused, what's the attraction?
    But some dudes just love to lose traction.

    Like any club that has grown too large, [motorcycling] has become mired in vacuous debates and split into a thousand splinter factions. Older riders hate squids; cruisers hate sport riders; Harley riders hate everyone, including themselves.

    Shutting down a hwy to protest an unfair law/incident is fine... ...shutting down the hwy to 'honor' a friend that wrecked doing stupid tricks in traffic (that you're now doing in front of the police & cameras) is just stupid.

    Video has been removed for some reason...probably so the cops can't use it
