    At least they are all ATGATT "all the gold all the time" :eek1 that has to be the largest gathering of 2smokers in the nation. I'm pretty sure they were just on their way to the start of a Hare and Hounds race.

    They aren't. I googled them and apparently they are a big problem, tearing up the turf in public parks and whatnot. I'm thinking, they are basically riding on the street all the time(when not driving in the city parks or on the sidewalk), why not just get your bikes plated or get a dual sport?

    I applaud these young hooligans for keeping the Banshee alive and well. :clap
    It appears that they have every one sold in PA......

    Think we need to send some of our Gear Nazi's in for an intervention though. :deal

    So, now that we know all the stolen dirtbikes in the region are ending up in Baltimore and Philly, what happens next?

    Before the cops weren't allowed to chase them for fear of causing accidents. In the new AMA magazine, the city and others like NY are going to start cracking down on dirt bikes. NY, Baltimore, and Philly were havens for stolen dirt bikes.

    It's USA, land of freedom, isn't it?

    A country where it's common to assume that every CCW gun owner are responsible and bright but every MX bike rider on the street are idiots and dangerous?

    Freedom doesn't apply to non-WASP people I guess.

    It the cops wanted to do something it looks like they couild have them all hemmed in when they are tearing up one of those fenced in parks.
    It would take quite a few leos though.

    Why put a plate on if you're going to ride like a pinhead? That would be just asking to get arrested at home later.

    Most of the machines are probably stolen too, so how/why would they register/title/insure?
