XJ, care to elaborate?

Someone should follow this guy on every trail ride and anytime the group makes a transition to pavement be sure that he puts on his swaybar links, airs up his tires, nock all the mud and dirt off this vehicle that could hurt other vehicles on the road and take all other precautions to keep the general public safe.

When you are doing stupid shit on a public road, you are putting everybody on that road in danger, whether you see it or not. Metaphorically speaking, there could be a mother of 3 behind you, with the 3 kids in the car. She could've come up on to you and then swerved to miss you as you lay your bike down after doing a stunt. As she swerves since she doesnt' have time to stop, she crosses the median, or the other lane, and gets hit head on by another vehicle and is seriously injured along with her children. Then who's life is endangered?

So if a guy pulls off a sweet wheelie it's cool as hell, but if he dumps it he's a dumbass?

Well if it has dents or mud on it, or if your tires arent properly inflated to exact specs you will not be allowed to wheel ever again!!!

That shows your maturity level...

most people that do anything extreme will do something at some point that will inadvertently endanger others....

Seriously we could give two shits less if you kill yourself on your bike, that is your choice... but on a public street endangers others.... is irresponsible...

how about the oil puddle your bike could have left that endangers other "bikers"... or the mom with 3 kids as suggested by another...

beleive you me I have done my share of stupid shit in life and you either learn from it or end up dead or worse...

My Electra Glide will pull the front wheel off the ground in second gear (found this out by accident)... this does not mean I go around on public roads popping wheelies. Most of the people you are saying that are not fun... have already been through this phase you are going through and have learned from it...

maybe they are just trying to keep you from ending up dead or worse.. and you knock them for it....
