Probably was some good ones in there. Sell them out of state. I'd have bought a dirt bike off them.

Got 4 of these arseholes up and down the street where I work at.

All day. Every day.

I've never wanted to stick some spokes so badly in my life.

Only a couple of those looked like dirt bikes and I saw not a single moped or 4-wheeler. Whoever staged this didn't really put any effort at all into doing so. Seems like they only wanted a photo-op with the resulting scrap, and they missed the mark there completely.

Most of them being crushed did not look like dirt bikes. So, there is no way to get a street license plate for a dirt bike in NY or NYNY? Most places license dirt bikes as far as I know. Just gotta have the required lights.

What an incredible waste of resources...Instead of doing that there are about a million other options that
DIDN'T simply destroy things for the sake of destroying them.. Other nations look at our wastefulness
and then hear us biatching about pollution and resource usage..Then they see this sort of shat and
wonder WTF are we talking about..All the pollution created to make those items, the resources, etc..
All wasted just to send a "message"..  Some 3rd world businessman would have bought that whole damn
lot, put them on a rickety ship and brought them back to wherever and they would have been used
probably longer than their expect life in the U.S. ..

NYC has done this same thing previously.  Thought so.

For fark's sake, this is incredibly stupid.

/I guess if the government does it, it's OK, and if a person had done it, it would be multiple criminal charges.

'Ohhh - I'd buy one for $50-$100'

Checks shipping- it will cost 5 to 10 times what I paid for the bike to get it transported?
 
2022-06-22 11:50:23 PM  
This not long after an article about those douchbags tearing up the national mall. Those shiat-for-brains are going to get all atvs banned everywhere.

/nice things? Pbbbtttt

Good. Just like the liberal state of California did with street racers. Crush them.

I'd suggest crushing them while the riders are cemented to the seats first though.
 
2022-06-23 12:02:47 AM  
Now I want a dirt bike.
 
2022-06-23 12:16:51 AM  
Those should all be electric by now.  Noisy, stanky extra polluting crap vehicles.

Hmm.  Chad Reed at either Daytona or one of the Anaheim races about 15-ish years ago.  Hard to tell which location.

The trail bikes are annoying, but they're not as dangerous as the deliverymen who come flying out of the side streets riding their all black electric bicycles, dressed all in black, weaving through traffic at upwards of 30 mph.

Certain models of dirt bikes, set up as street-legal based versions of Super Moto bikes have been sold and are out there, but not in big numbers.  They are essentially autocross bike with street bike tires and all the D.O.T. requirements.  Easy to point out in  a group because the front rim is much smaller that the motocross equivalent.

So you DO support late term abortion then!

Of course. I support elective abortion until age 18 ... and truthfully, a lot longer than that.

It's seems they're being replaced with electric scooters, which I guess is better for the environment.  They're just as dangerous though
 
2022-06-23 11:50:56 AM  
WTF is wrong with NYC that despite all the culture and diversity, they continuously elect the worst possible mayors?
