    Have a chat with him if you have the opportunity. But if it's a "I'm going to tell you how it is" speeches, he isn't going to care. Otherwise, if he keeps it up at this rate, eventually he'll get some attention from the local PD. His own life is seriously at risk, but I think it's a stretch to say his a significant threat to others.
    Extra scrutiny? The guy split 3 lanes of traffic probably 10 cars deep to blow through the stop light (which was red) at a 4 way intersection, an intersection that has 3 crosswalks and which is frequently used (its literally in the downtown/center area of the town where all the sidewalk businesses are), at dusk. And he didn't creep through the intersection, he was doing probably 35-40 through it.

    That's not "aggressive riding", that's suicidal/homicidal riding. If any of you ride like that, you deserve to be thrown in jail yourselves.

    My point is maybe you were so pissed bout it, his 15mph head check and then running it seemed like 35, or because the cars he was next to were still. Anger causes some bias. No he shouldn't be running red lights, but I'm just saying maybe your anger made thing seem worse than they were, and each event made it worse. I don't like these clowns because I fear they bring extra attention and hatred towards the sport, so we can skip the part where you say I'm accepting of his behavior.

    That's what I was thinking.

    Why is it that when you try to be careful cars try to kill you, but when you try to get killed, they all miss? I may be doing this all wrong.

    And maybe a blueshift turned into a redshift, which make it seem like he was going slower than he really was. Play psychoanalyst and physicist all you want, it doesn't dismiss the fact that this particular person has made a pattern of pulling extremely stupid moves on a bike, 3 of which I witnessed all within a period of a couple days, and all of which could end up in someone else getting hurt.

    I don't think you can discount the damage that could be done by a motorcycle impacting at speed, especially with a pedestrian/bicycle/other motorcycle...

He said "Thanks" and parked it. If the police had showed he might have gotten jacked up, so now he's more respectful of the neighborhood.
    I ride through the Franklin Park area most days on the way home and it is lousy with kids riding dirbikes unhelmeted, totally erratic riding. Also some 3 and 4 wheel ATVs. kind of worry about those kids.... Haven't had a chance to talk to them and not sure if they'd listen if I did, but I like your strategy.

    They ride there for a number of reasons. One is that if the PD took chase they can bail into the park. In the NW corner of the park there are a series of side streets that adjoin the park, and they could exit any one of those back to Roxbury, which is NE.

    In the same area (near Blue Hill Ave) I've seen sport bike riders with no helmet, no plate. They rely on the fact that BPD has more to do than chase them.

    I've run into a number of local bike clubs at gas stations and the like. They are moderately interested in the Triumph but are all over the WR250R and TW200, especially since the WR has ME and NH ORV stickers. It is for that reason that my son's CRF100 is kept locked up in a locked shed behind a locked gate.....

    I would hardly call responding to one person that questions whether my eyes work "arguing with everyone".

    Re: Stupid rider with a death wish

    I would call and let them know when and where you usually see this guy giving the rest of us a bad name. I'm usually the last person to call the cops but that doosher is going to cause more hurt to other people than himself when his fate finally catches up with him.

    I would argue that arguing with one person, then arguing with a second who accused you of arguing with everyone, is inarguably arguing, but perhaps not arguing with everyone.

    When I witness dangerous, suspicious or criminal behavior, I notify the authorities. That's what this is. Why is this a question?

    I've found with most things in life, Fucktards will do stupid things and live long to tell about it. The rest of us will slip and fall in the shower and never walk again.
    (the guy that did the swan dive off a ladder into a small inflatable pool, that was an unlucky fucktard....)
