Maybe we could name threads better...that way searching would be easier, and reposts would cut down.

makes sense.

not to mention your title brings more attention (closet squid come out the woodwork to see "Stunts" )

none the less the story doesn't seen to be complete

Yeah, I was lifting weights last night with an LEO neighbor who works that area. He told me about it. He was also telling me that more and more bikes in his area are running from the police after passing speedtraps at high speeds. How much more of this stuff until they really start cracking down?

Highway 364 is our newly opened "Page extension" that connects St. Louis County to St. Charles County, where more and more of the population is living. It's a runway for bikes. It's also a crowded highway.

No, he pretty much reiterated what we've read. St. Peters and St. Charles police aren't going to take this lightly and will be looking to find out who those guys were. It burns my a$$ to even think about it. So many squids around here blow me off when I tell them to take their wheelies to the backroads. It was only a matter of time before they hurt someone else besides themselves.

I sure don't miss streetriding.

not AT ALL condoning anything these guys do.... just a side note:

I feel totally uncomfortable without a seatbelt on. 7 of 8 people not wearing seat belts? Ridiculous.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Here's the accident report

14-year old kid involved was riding with his parents. Both are listed as being in Severe/Serious condition.

Re: Why Not To Stunt

I'm not supporting the Squidfest on the road but the squids cuting off the suv and the St Louis extreem film session seem to be two different issues. (not that either is acceptable) if the incidents are one in the same, once you see a bunch of dick on bikes doin dum **** don't you give them some space



it's early and I'm slow someone help me out

The ones I've seen doing stuff like this ride between and around cars. I don't think you can give them space. They look for cars parading so they can ride a stand-up between them.

Nope, I'm not gonna alter my safe and legal driving for a bunch of assholes. If some squid on a bike wants to try to cut me off, he better hope he clears me, 'cause I'm not gonna move. If he screws up, he pays the price. He can kill himself for all I care, there's no way in hell I will put my life and the lives of my family in danger just because some prick that can't ride worth **** thinks the road is his.
When I see squids on the roads, I write down plate numbers and call police.

Re: Why Not To Stunt

These f*cking a-holes need to go to jail, their bikes on a hook, their licenses to drive suspended for a long, long time.

This is another painful reminder why insurance companies redline sportbikes. The street stunna crowd is comtemptable, every last one of them.
