Could we please direct them to your neighborhood?

Uh yeah ok. These aren't street legal bikes. I grew up riding dirt bikes, in the woods, on dirt trails, these don't belong on the streets. Take them to durhamtown or out to the woods, or else get a street bike. These are grown men riding around making a fool out of themselves thinking it's cute to disrupt traffic and cause danger to pedestrians. They need to setup a road block and throw spikes down as mentioned. Oh and this isn't Baltimore, there are plenty of open spaces to ride these.

You think so?

Go do this down the streets of London, Paris, Munich, Moscow, Rome, or Venice... come back and tell me how much more they enjoy it.

Yeah whatever. What they were doing wasn't safe. Did you see the part about the guy getting his bicycle damaged by these clowns?

I know most of you disagree but I personally feel these instances should allow for lethal force to be used to send a message to these punks. They could easily get innocents and bystanders hurt and couldn't care less about it.

Actually, I agree, but maybe try confiscating the equipment first. They've become a problem here as well.

Anyone that can afford a side by side is hardly "marginalized". Or are you implying they stole them?

This is obviously some sort of organized ride.

So, what is the purpose/message of it?

This is of course a type of disruption no major city would allow. Which is why it's so hilarious that it happens in America, a place with no tolerance even for things like the street markets, protests, and strikes that are commonplace in Paris or Mexico City.

No. Pretty telling you would suggest such a thing though.

Bikes up guns down is their motto.

Those were some pretty expensive bikes. Mine costs over 10 grand and I won't be riding the streets until I get it street legal. No one that can afford such a bike is poor.
