Don't care and in the words of Metallica...
(And this captures my thoughts on the whole damn subject about the Wheelie-Boy culture in general...)

Outta my way
Outta my day

Out of your mind and into mine
Into no one
Into not one
Into your step but out of time

Headstrong
What's wrong?
I've already heard this song before
You've arrived
But now it's time
To kiss your ass good-bye

Dragging me down
Why you around?
So useless

It ain't my fall
It ain't my call
It ain't my bitch

It ain't my bitch

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

But think of the sport! (Add hand-wringing here)...

I'm guessing it won't amount to much more than a fart in the wind as far as the sport goes.

Look at anything in life. Bikers on Harleys? You've got some really good ones, and you've got the 1%ers. Same goes for cops, and people in power. (Think Harvey W.) You could cite plenty more examples of positive and negatives in just about anything. I tend to focus on the positives. Others in here? Not so much.

On the same weekend in Houston, you'll also have all the pro teams and riders at NRG Stadium. I'd think that more than offsets any bike life negatives.

Which do you think the media will focus on, the positive or the negative?...

Kind of like Vital? 99% are good and 1% bring us down

Probably not an entirely incorrect comparison...

Hope you are right and you probably are. I would just hate for their behavior to reflect upon the true mx community and draw scrutiny to those who actually ride in designated areas.

I wonder if they'll have an ambulance on hand, just in case.

I think most people can figure out the difference.

I did get one note from a friend in the Houston area that the zone around the stadium may not be the best, and that doing everything prudent to keep their belongings safe is a good idea.

Well I guess a positive would be if there's a bunch of them there at least we know they're not out "buying" bikes.

I worked Southeast Patrol for 16 years. If you go anywhere near the 3600 block of Alice St., you deserve what you get.

Wonder how many dudes get their bikes stolen this weekend. The thieves in Houston have been ridiculously bold lately. Stealing bikes and posting themselves riding them hours later on social media. I really wanted to ride 3 palms while I was down there but getting my bike stolen isn’t worth it.

If anyone's around...Gibby and I will be having a Stella or 2 in the Greater Houston Area...

Btw, from now on I'll be referring to him as "Heeeed!"...aka, "Head" as stated in the movie "So I Married an Axe Murderer". Steve's picture will also be found on the now infamous Scottish Wall of Fame.

Scene...

Stuart Mackenzie: Look at the size of that boy's heed.

Tony Giardino: Shhh!

Stuart Mackenzie: I'm not kidding, it's like an orange on a toothpick.

Tony Giardino: Shhh, you're going to give the boy a complex.

Stuart Mackenzie: Well, that's a huge noggin. That's a virtual planetoid.

Tony Giardino: Shh!

Stuart Mackenzie: Has it's own weather system.

Tony Giardino: Sh, sh, shh.

Stuart Mackenzie: HEAD! MOVE!
