Never seen that one before. Thats a good-er.

I have so many comments it would take me forever to type them out.

I'd rather just wait and see what other people think.

they forgot to put in the red screen behind the riders while they did their stunts and the scary music, DUN DUN DAAAAA. thats horse shit. its sad, but to blame anyone but the cop forspeeding to a drag race. is garbage. its not an emergency. he got a hard on and just wanted to bust some one.

those guys doing wheelies in between cars on the freeway are retards though.

good thing they found the dumbest person they could find to answer those questions "what is the law ,,who makes it ,who says i cant speed on this road but i can on others " good one ,,way to keep it sensible boob head .pretty much every answer ha gave made him sound dumber each time .

he sounded just as dumb as the interviewer and the cops "these bikers wont slow down ,they just want you to get out of the way " ..they are killing people ALL the time hahahaahaahaa yup .......and they thought bin landen was bad .

I wouldn't call that a newscast as much as i would call it tabloid tv. Paul sherer did sound dumb with his answers but he made a good point when he said that most ppl dont even know what the riders are even doing. Just typical motorcycle ignorant ppl.

every answer should have been "cuz its fun" or "who cares" or "if yu dont like it call a cop " or something along those lines.

trying to justify it sounded really bad .

The f-ing media is the problem... that shit is not real stunting. Good to see they showed the controlled lot riding that we do :rolleyes

it's the same with guns... lots of guys take em to the range and work on their skills and have a little fun... all safe. Then you get the assholes that use them to jack people or worse, and which group of gun owners do you hear about in the news? definetly not the first...

i think a lot more innocent people have been killed by Cops with hard on's trying to run down speeding bikes and cars then street bikes have.

Chances are that i hit a suv on my bike.. I'm dead, and the SUV needs a finder.

Inside report is the biggest garbage show besides the Bill O'rely report.

Its a given that the media will focus purely on the negatives of the sport, and some of the accidents that were caused. It makes all sport bike riders look like scum. When in reality there are tons who enjoy the art of stunting in empty parking lots booney land roads were they are not out in the public.
True some guys are ass' on wheels (myself included from time to time) but most are all arround good guys.

I cant really put up a good arguement on the highway stunts cuz shit does go wrong......from time to time.

Well said:thumbup In my opinion its always a treat to see stunters doing what they do. Bottom line is we all accept the risk when we go out on public roads or even on the track. Its the life we chose:2cents

Notwithstanding the idiots who ride without licenses and do stunts in places where it does put the public at risk (ie. wheelying between cars on the freeway or near pedestrians), the 'journalist' presenting this story is anything but. He revels in being judgmental and scolding to boost his own (obviously fragile) ego, and instead of presenting a balanced view which would include mentioning the many private stunt facilities that have been established (such as Boundary Bay) to take it off the streets, he just throws together a bunch of unrelated statistics and incidents in a failed attempt to support his TV show's exploitive slant: "... at speeds up to 200 mph"?! I won't even start with that one.

Also, that highly-publicized SUV accident he claims was caused by stunters was actually, if I'm recalling correctly, later found to be the fault of the SUV driver.

Their statics are a little skewed as well "motorcycle fatalities have increased 70% since 1997". Sounds good for the "news" cast but I'd guess that the number of motorcyclist has gone up around the same amount so the ratio is still about the same.

Thanks.:cheers

The other thing I take issue with is their mention of statistics about the increase in motorcycle accidents/deaths. At no time do they make the effort to discover what percentage was the result of stunt riding, nor do they say how much could be attributed to inattentive, distracted, cell phone-using cage drivers. We've all been around long enough to know how significant car driver error is in the number of motorcycle injuries and deaths.

Ya gotta admit though..Paula Zahn is pretty hot in a sexy W.A.S.P Milf sort of way. I bet off camera she`s got some pretty good stunt skills.

I love how they end it with a report of a dead trooper...who was killed "responding" to a bike complaint - not killed chasing bikers, not killed when a bike crashed into his car...killed because he f*cked up and crashed responding to a call, which could've been anything.

that part was definately blown out of proportion .
