    Motorcycle crushing event

    Nice video for those who don't like dirt bikers riding on the public roads.

    Apparently, they just did another one this month in New York. An annual event now.

      Yes, dickheads indeed.

      What a horrible waste for the sake of some silly publicity.

        Here is this messed up part.

        Those dudes stunting around the city's running from cops (and I've ran from my share, I'm not getting on a pedestal here, except I never have nor ever will stunt... Just so lame.) usually don't own those bikes. The vast majority of them are stolen then wiped of all #'s.

        So they are not even hurting the feelings of whomever they confiscated them from.. they are crushing some dudes bike who most likely did very little wrong.

          They used to sell the bikes at auction, but most of the time the owner/perpetrator would buy back his own bike (repeatedly), and be out there again. These bikes are ridden on pedestrian-filled sidewalks, down the wrong way on streets against traffic, at high speed through red lights at intersections, and are frequently colliding with pedestrians and cars..then the operator jumps on the back of a nearby buddy’s bike and bolt away if the bike was disabled and can’t be ridden off. By crushing the unregistered bikes they are breaking the endless cycle.

          Maybe that’s ok for some of us, but I don’t see them as victims in this case.


          YMMV

          -P.
          I need a bigger garage.

          It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it.

              As long as your paying and that's the key, you can ride on sidewalks, in the street, wrong way on street, up one way streets or alleys. Everything goes, just as long as you stick that credit card in, for your electric bike, scooter, skateboard. But I myself, got a positive out of all the craziness. Every year I carry my title for my mini-moto to DMV, when I get other motorbikes licensed. For 4 years they denied me, even when it had been licensed in another state. Ah, but the 5th time it worked. Ask a high ranking policemen friend, what's up? He said, " With electric everything
              unlicensed, any number on a vehicle is better than none". I would also think my fee's also help the new decision.

                On our local Craig's List, we regularly see older dirt bikes with "Bill of sale only" and "Lost title." In the old days ('70s, '80s) used dirt bikes were cheap, and the riders were cheaper. They didn't transfer title because they were not street legal-- not licensed or insured. No one cared: Possession was 99 points of the law. You might find a bike whose title had not been transferred for three or four owners.

                Today, I think a bike without a title is probably stolen.

                None of these hooligans is doing good for motorcycling. Jail time might help.

                  Dirt bikes still pass hands bill of sale only the vast majority of the time. I've owned more than I can count. Never had a title come with a used dirt bike. Always a bill if sale at best, but usually nothing but a hand shake.

                  Can't register them, makes it hard to transfer a "title" because they don't have them. They will come with a certificate of origin, but I wouldn't even know what to do with it.

                    It’s been awhile since I had a dirt bike in California, but off-road and trail riders need “green” stickers and get registered as such because the government wanted to collect $$$ fees annually. The Hot-Ticket used to be taking an XR650/600 whatever dirt bike and throw a Baja Kit (battery, winkers , headlight) to meet street requirements to get on paved roads that link up all the OHV trails. Rangers and CHP know the cut-over areas and sometimes would sit at the end of them and catch unregistered bikes. Whatever you try with CA DMV requires a title or or complete lotta paperwork and pass inspections. Some of these guys couldn’t keep the headlight burning long enough without motor running or non-DOT knobby tires.
