Sport Bike Riders Close Another Freeway While Doing Stunts; They will Bring Down Heat on All Sport Biker Riders.

I have written about Sport Motorcycle Riders raising hell on public streets on the Biker Law Blog many times in the past.

Here is a link to a story and videos, I wrote and posted almost 4 years ago showing this type of activity on a freeway; click here now.

Below is a video of a freeway closing by sport motorcycle riders in Texas this past weekend.

I know I am going to get the usual “Yea I am a badass sport bike rider so screw off” messages from certain sport bike riders who read the Biker Law Blog, but the real fact of the matter is that idiots doing stuff like this on public freeways will only bring down heat on everyone riding a sport motorcycle, even the poor bastard who may have just bought an inexpensive motorcycle to ride to work on.

I know the idiots doing these things think it is cool to raise hell like this and then post the videos on Youtube and the like, but in the end no good can come out of it.

You can watch the video below and see for yourself. The video comes from a news channel in Texas, and a short commercial will appear before the video appears.

You tell me if you think the non riding civilian public will tolerate this kind of thing and if you think it will bring down heat on all bikers.

I have been holding off on writing this article because I knew it would be controversial in the motorcycle community. In the motorcycle world there are generally three types or classifications of motorcycle riders. There are those who ride cruisers such as Harley Davidson motorcycles; there are those who ride sport motorcycles; and there are those who ride anything in between.

Sport bikes, (crotch rockets) are motorcycles they can literally attain speeds of 150 mph plus.

I have received reports from numerous sources that law enforcement is cracking down on sport motorcycle riders for various reasons. There are being stopped for no apparent reason, and ticketed for no apparent reason.

Unfortunately, there is a minority of sport motorcycle riders that are giving a bad name to the rest of the sport bike motorcycle riders. They are; riding on city streets and freeways at excess speeds; they are doing stunts such as wheelies, burnouts, and other crazy things on city streets and freeways; and they are racing through canyons, city streets, and on the freeways.

As a motorcycle lawyer, I advise each motorcycle rider to follow the law. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever for riding 100 miles an hour down a city street. I have personally witnessed sport bike riders doing insane things on the streets, in the canyons, and on the open road.
