Still trying to figure out why cali riders are posting their meaningless replies on a post for a "east coast" ride ... smh
If you can't go/don't wanna go.. then stfu.
Simply informing real riders (you know the ones who know their local biker community, or wouldn't mind meeting new people in the area, of this event)..
There's a few poop dicks in this forum, who ALWAYS have something to say.. a lil pack of cowards..talking shit on the internet..
I'll be there.. (see profile pic for what bike to look for).. in case any of you keyboard warriors can make it..
"Real riders"? I've been riding since you were shitting your pampers. I started a riding organization that, at its height, had more than 300 members. I'm an avid street rider, track rider, and rider advocate for motorcyclists rights as well as safety. For my job I promote the U.S. national road racing series. But... I'm not a "real rider".
You seem to think that just because some of us on one side of the country are calling out a ride like this as (generally) shining a less than attractive light on the sport bike community, that we shouldn't be allowed to have an opinion? I'm actually interested in knowing more about the organizers and what the proceeds (if any) are going to. Are they trying to gain awareness for riders rights? Are they trying to build awareness for anything in particular? Cancer research? Fuck man.... give me something. Help me and the others understand. I'm a reasonable person. Educate me.... but don't call me a coward... because you have no idea who you're even talking to.
Stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason. So when I see a ride entitled "Shut down the city" all I think of is this....
I'm not saying that there aren't legitimate rides like this. There are. The Love Ride has been around for decades in the L.A. area (32 years now) and proceeds go to Wounded Warrior Foundation. Jay Leno hosts the event most years and there are something like 15-20k bikes some years.
So don't come in here getting all shitty with your attitude calling people cowards and saying we're talking shit on the internet. (You just did the same exact thing dipshit).
You just basically called out a challenge of some sort. What are you trying to prove? My guess is that if I just happened to be out that way and walked up and saw your bike and said "Hey man... nice bike... I'm PowerGroove on the forums.", your attitude would not be the same as it is above with your statement. In fact, you'd probably feel a pit in your stomach because there it is... confrontation right in front of you. Whatcha gonna do? Punch me out just because I said hello? *smh* no... you wouldn't.
Now... as I've said... There are plenty of legitimate rides like this. Give us more info on the backround rather than being a dick. Maybe you'll change some people's opinions. Just sayin'...
