Rumblers show shut down

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Ratrod37, Aug 20, 2011.



  1. I wasn't aware that Angels were derelicts. Of course I could be mistaken.

    That said I have never dated an Angel maybe its different in that situation.

    Whether an Angel got into a scuffel in a bar or not is a moot point. Even if an Angel did get into an altercation in a bar it shouldn't have much bearing on the show getting shut down unless the show were held in the bar. :rolleyes:

    Never the less the derogatory comment comes from someone who doesn't even own a car or a bike and obviously doesn't read or understand English. Never the less I am posting the reason for the show being shut down from someone who knows just so the lady can read the official account again.

    I wasn't at the show and probably won't make it in the future if it happens again. I do think that someone who has obviously has had their feelings hurt should at least get the facts straight before they go pointing their dirty little finger where they shouldn't.

    Why did the cops come to the scene, anyway? Did someone call them after the guy dumped his bike?

    Someone within the police force sees a large number of people in a small ? space in New York and panics and calls in the riot squad nuff said.

    If it is done next year is there any way to get the vendors and awards area further away from the streets? That might help a bit. No less people but people not so close to the streets in mass.

    And maybe get word to the idiot who decided he needed to show the world he could do a wheelie that he doesn't have an invite for next year. He wouldn't be the first person at a rod trot who made an ass out of himself and was told not to come back.

    I am not a fan of cops at all but you summed up the deal pretty much right on.
    And I was a cop(not for long)way back.

  9. Here is the abreviated version of what happened.



    I thought you might, somehow there are just a few of us that on this board that think the same way about things.

    Finger pointing now that's just bad juju, there are almost always 3 fingers pointing back at you.

    Makes sense.

    It certainly was tight. Had to walk sideways to get past the cars in the center aisles.

    I was stationed at the reserve center in Brooklyn. Floyd Bennett Field (old airport) was where it was located. Is it still there? If so, why not have the show there? As I recall, there is a ton of empty space as well as old runways. With ADULT supervision, you could even have drag races. Why does this show need to be held under a bridge in the heart of NYC? Doesn't make good sense.

    From the internet: The New York Daily News reported on December 14, 2010, that Andrew M. Murstein was considering the field as a possible site for a NASCAR track. Mr Murstein is president of Medallion Financial Corp. which owns Richard Petty Motorsports.

    i walked away from this thread awhile ago because i actually have better things to do like prepare for an incoming hurricane but i saw this post and i'm honestly blown away by this entire comment. you talk like its okay to weave in out of traffic, blow down the shoulder, do 100mph. sounds to me like your proud all of the time for acting like an idiot. i'd use more inappropriate words to describe how i feel about the subject but im going to keep it professional. The only thing i hear from you is "me, me, and me". "I am somtimes proud for acting like an idiot..." "I don't sit on a bike in traffic, i split.." etc, etc, etc.

    The only thing i hear is "I don't care about myself or what happens to me." Well guess what BigNick; i could honestly care less if you care if you live or die. thats your choice and entirely up to you. what i dont like about you is that you're so incredibily self centered over acting like a 16 year old for the sake of being cool and showing off...that no where in your posts do you give a rats ass about the innocent people around. thats what bugs me. The only thing i hear is "people stand around and wait for us to act like idiots."

    Do you ever think about the innocent people you're weaving around on the highways doing 100mph. Ever think about if one of them tries to change lanes and doesnt see you coming at 100mph weaving around cars, hits and kills you, slams into another car possibly killing them and then putting the lives of other drivers travelling at 70mph/80mph in serious jeopordy? Ever think about how you would feel if you somehow you survived but were the cause of death for some elderly man, grandfather, grandmother, mother, father, daughter or son or god forbid an innocent child and their family members? Ever think about that? Obviously you don't because youre too high up on your horse to come down to that level...the only thing you're worried about is acting young and dumb and careless with obviously no concern for those around you. And you want to know what: bad things can happen, yes they can. But they DONT just happen.

    They happen because of you. Like i said before; you want to take your own life into your hands and kill yourself....then thats your choice but DON'T put the lives of hundreds of others during your travels into serious jeopordy because you think youre an awsome rider, skilled and you think you're so damn cool. well obviously youre not as skilled as you think you might be because if you were, you wouldve made that last wheelie; not dumped it. I hate to sound like a psychotic bitch but i've had way to many people in my life die on the road due to the actions of careless others and i can't believe i'm withnessing such a pompous idiot talk like he's joe-cool with not a care in the world for others. i hope one day; for the sake of the safety of everyone else...that reality slaps you in the face

    i never meant to talk down on the event. i think its a great event, great cars, in a cool place. the show is popular and it has great potential to be even better. it looks like a fun event and maybe someday in the future we will go but i hope next year the police can keep this kind of behavior from occuring again

    it's almost like you type these long responses in hopes that your opinion will actually over ride theirs. how many paragraphs will it take to make a grown man think that burnouts, wheelies, driving fast, splitting lanes and what not aren't fun.

    here's a free tip, the reason they are all fun is because they are dangerous, if I have to type anything more that, you'll never understand, much like you could have just typed "you are a selfish dick", nuff said

    im not saying theyre not fun. i understand why they do them and i've been a part of them too. im not saying that and im trying not to imply that they are not fun. people have a need for speed; i understand that. isnt that why we build cars and things to go fast and do stupid things? i just read his post and cant believe someone could be that self centered and careless and talk like its "nothing."

    believe me; i have particapated in some stupid wrong-doings that were never a good idea. were they fun? you bet! could we and others have been killed? yep. while they were fun and stupid and completely wrong, yes they were. do i realize that? yes. i'm not bragging about it and i dont take pride in acting like an idiot unless I've made proper jdugement and looked into the best interest of others. people make mistakes, people do stupid things, peope make poor judgement. i get it...that kind of stuff DOES happen. in this instance...bignick sees no remorse for doing all of the above on a regular basis

    people can do burnouts and wheelies and drive fast....but use proper judgement and do it where you know others are not in danger....not in a crowded parking lot, not on a crowded highway, not in a school zone or a neighborhood, etc. obviously there is no judgement or consideration of others in his decision making.

    This doesnt go for just motorcycles. this is geared towards the hot rodders too. this is a hot rod foum, right? so far the majority of hambers ive conversed with on here have been very respectful.

    You're better off walking away and putting it out of your mind sometimes, because some people never admit that they could be wrong. Especially on the internet.:rolleyes:

    It's not your place to tell other people how to live their lives. If you feel that strongly about it, then join the police academy and become a cop. . . this way you can actually make a difference. You can wait outside of car shows and write tickets all day long.

    Typing out five thousand word passages on the internet to people who obviously don't agree with, or respect your opinion does nothing but make you the butt of joke. It's not going to convince anyone to change their driving habits.
