Am I a bad person?



I just found out about a little "event" here in Tucson. It apparently occurs every Sunday on a piece of private property (very large paved area) not all that far from me. Yes, it is a stunting session . My inner hooligan wants to drag my ass there and watch (and photograph) some of these despicable acts . Maybe I will even get to witness some folks phocking up perfectly good plastics . I don't condone this sort of thing on public streets but if the entertainers are doing it of their free will, and in an area where no innocents can be hurt, why not?

Should I go?

Wish I had a camcorder.

Yeah sure why not go? Just make sure you go early for a front row spot. We don't want pics or vids of the back of somebody's head.

Re: Am I a bad person?

Yeah maybe you can do a video like the antiricer vid Conq posted. We went to one of those in Arlington and started laughing when some guy went down doing a stoppie. I think we pissed some people off so we left, but we were laughing the whole time, phuggin jackasses.

Yes you are a bad person, so send Tigerblade a dollar.

Go, damn it. What the hell you doin' asking us for permission? Live your own life, for once in your life.

There must be someone you know who owns a camcorder and who would trust you with it.
You're good for the cash if you drop it, right?

Re: Am I a bad person?

Just reading the title, I would have answered YES


but after reading the rest of the thread, I would say NO, just go down there and enjoy somebody elses skills or misfortune, just don't go on your bike as you may find on the way home that squidness is infectious

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!

Re: Am I a bad person?

When a local stunna hit and killed a bystander here last summer, the local Sheriff's Office wound up charging a whole slew of people as accessories. I dunno Baccus, I suppose it's different for me because of what I do for a living, but I wouldn't be caught within five miles of such an event. Too many things can go wrong . . . and besides, I harbor some real resentment for this segment of the riding population. Squids suck.

Atleast being a bystander at one of these "events" you have chosen to be there at your own free will and understand what the risks are and what is going on, unlike squids doing this out on a public road where the "bystanders" have no choice of being near the stunts. I compare it as going to an airshow, there is always a possibility of a plane crashing down on you.
