Supposedly 200-300 bikes. Not just this guy. He was at the back of the pack. They’d been following the group hoping to get them out of town.

I was at local shop the other day and there was talk about the New England over 60 class. Yes that’s a very senior class. The guy winning each week is on a YZ250. He just likes to ride different things each season. Now I know the 60+ class isn’t the ... more »

I just read the news article where it mentions he works as a painter at the shipyard. Regardless of what went down, who is to blame, etc the main thing is his recovery. Again I hate hordes of bikes on the public streets. And I am trying to have it both ... more »

I don’t think he gets a pass for riding moto. If anything his moto experience can hopefully get others to leave the street and take to the dirt. If he comes out of this that is. Coordinate a drive to see him or others race. Check out the track, etc. ... more »

According to another article police had been following the group hoping to get them to leave the city.

From the news I see in Providence, I don't think that many police cars pull up to a shooting. They have a hard job that is understaffed. I blame the mayor as he made it a sanctuary city. I should clarify I blame the mayor as his sanctuary city is out ... more »

OP didn't bring up employed and hard working. I just hope some kind of good comes from this. Either the state opens some riding land or he gets kids who'd ride on the street to try racing or trail riding (again needs somewhere to trail ride so that's ... more »

Lots of bad here. This group riding of ATV, dirtbikes and some scooters on the streets of Providence. The guy hit on the scooter apparently has raced some MX up here. Too bad he wasn't there and not on the street, but the PD hitting him, and dragging ... more »

What if bike isn’t being ridden on streets? What if an mx racer lives in the city?

Of course they have?? Questions have been about checking VIN and no answers yet. Also asked about if stolen donating to tech schools for teaching. City says no values to auctioning them off or to charity.

No mention if they checked to see if stolen. I hate the menace they are on city streets but this seems like the wrong approach. If stolen they’ll steal more. What a waste and now they are talking about taking them out of yards. Not even catching in the ... more »

Beautiful bike. I was ripped when my Yeti cooler was stolen off my boat at night, by fellow boaters! I'd be sick if that was my 250 that got stolen.

I loved those aluminum swing arms on those bikes. So much cooler than the black round steel ones.
