    Amen to that, we have them by the 1000s. What really infuriates me is when they ride 2 and 3 wide in the bike lane.

    Police here will pull the entire group over, and write every one of them a ticket.

    A couple years ago the packs of bikes were really screwing up traffic riding like that. The police finally said enough is enough, and started handing out tickets like candy at Halloween.

    "You got to be kidding me".........
    News story in Milwaukee (35 miles south of me). The pederasses who get released from prison are let go into the community that they offended in (that's one moment). One actually moved in next door to one of his victims (that's two).
    Since they're not allowed to live within X amount of feet from a school or other places where kids might be (playground), there's limited opportunities for available housing....
    The punchline here: Some of these pederasses are suing the City of Milwaukee for discrimination. There's a scumbag lawyer representing about a half dozen of these turds.

    Sorry that you had to venture into 'Kilwaukee' Andres. Beware if you are walking or driving anywhere - and I mean anywhere, not just Downtown.
    There are multiple car jackings daily by kids - like 13, 14 & 15 year olds...you probably watch the news.
    Shootings during robberies and car jackings are as common as corndogs at a fair.
    A month or so ago, a DPW guy was shot point blank in the face with a scattergun so they could jack his Stang GT.
    A girl from IL was lost in Downtown, pulled over to check directions on her phone and was abducted by two dudes and driven to Kenosha where she was assaulted, then dumped like garbage.....the list goes on.
    That is not a good place to be - looks nice Downtown - but crime is rampant.
    I'd rather be in the flood zones right now.
    Mayor McTrolly and Chief Wiggum keep making excuses for the 'kids', so none of them ever do any time........
    Sorry, got ramped up here - all I say is watch your 6.

    I guess this also falls under the Catagory of the thread.........

    I'm bicycle friendly until I see them :) I used to ride a lot in the 80's and 90's. Thought nothing of riding 50 miles on a day trip. Used to ride the MS150 which was 150 miles in 2 days. So many jackwads started riding, I became disgusted with that whole sport.

    I am glad that i am not living in a place like that. Montreal is quite safe, we have like 16 murders per years, and that is a bad year. Is this due to the economy in some state/city ? That would be an awful feeling being rob/ car jacked at gun point. Here we have now bicycle lane on some important street to help the circulation, guess what, most of the riders are riding outside those lane and they complain when cars are hitting them. I found it kinda stupid but police do act and get tickets to many offenders.

    That really sounds like Newark NJ at least from a few years ago. Glad it is not that bad here yet but it is definetly worse than it was 10 years ago.

    Watching it on TV myself. Miller park is really nice. Too bad the city has so many problems.You get a bit of Milwaukee culture driving tonight.
    Watch the morning news on FOX6 to get a recap of last nights killing / shootings. Usually 3 or 4 shootings a night.

    We left At the 7th inning with the score 9-6. We schlepped over to the Safe House bar. What a riot this place is. On the way we caught a party bus. I've never been on a public city bus where they sell you beer as the price of admission and then take you to straight to the bar from the ballpark.

    Unfrigging believable. I think I can get used to this in spite of the high crime rate !!!

    One "you gotta be kidding me"- moments i had was when i was importing my SRT to Sweden last year. Among the many things i had to do to make the car legal to drive in Sweden was to get a "Noice-certificate". This would prove that the SRT did not sound to loud. You may think this would involve taking the car to some testing-facility and let someone look at the car, listen to it, measure the decibel and then, if the car pass, sign a document.
    No, that is not how this is done. You go on a site on the internet, type in the VIN, pay $300 in advance and after 2 weeks you get the certificate in the mail. No one listen to the sound of your car........

    Roses would work very well for that LOL Rose bushes grow like weeds and are nearly impossible to kill. And their thorns are big.

    A "You've Gotta Be Kidding Me" I here so often is my car (insert car name) has run over XXX mph (insert ridiculous speed) for a top speed. I don't know why people, and its often people that don't exagarate things, tell me some crazy top speed there car has run.

    The last local cruise a gentleman has a freshly restored 69 Super Bee. Older gentalmen, maybe in his 70's and he is the original ower. Super nice car, restored factory correct, very nice paint and everything almost perfect, tells me this car has run a 150mph and it had more left in it. Its a 383 four speed car. It wouldn't run 150 mph with a tail wind and down hill. They just didn't have the aerodynamics or the power. I've heard so many stories like this I don't really hold it aginst people anymore.

    Like the guy with the 442 Cutlass, a state tropper clocked him going 160mph, that must make it true. And the guy with the Corvette, his car ran......................... They just go on and on.
