    I think "skitching" is hanging onto the rear bumper an being pulled on !your skateboard,or blades without the driver knowing.

    In Buffalo, the kids grab the back bumper of the school bus when there is snow, and get pulled around on their boots !

    We've had a cruise weekend going on for 22 years in my little town. About 10 years ago it got pretty western with burnouts, fights, folks raising hell on 4 wheelers on the sidewalks, and even some out of town groups coming in and shooting at each other.
    Cops, residents, and the club that puts the cruise on got together and put a lid on things. Is it as wild and as much "fun" as it used to be? Maybe not, but it's still going on and I don't think anyone has died because of the activities.

    Sturgis isn't what it was back in the 70's either.

    If you're gonna have a wide open "party", better do it out in the country not downtown.

    From the few times I've been there in the past....
    The Hells Angles have always been there!
    The cops never gave a crap with what went on!
    Would nice to hear the story from a 1st hand witness. Not speculation

    aside from all the speculation, and the who heard this and who saw that, the rumblers did a fantastic job of putting on another killer show! it will be a shame if it was the last one, but at least i can say i was there. what ever really happened is now over, and we will just have to wait and see what the future holds for them. i doubt if this temporary dark cloud is going to stop them from putting on a show bigger and better next year! thanks guys.

    I have always wanted to get to this gig.This year it was on same date as Hardcore Happening in Leroy..We had our own incident with a bike.During one of the Many smoke shows out on the road, Kens hill climb style road worrior hooked a little too much payment and threw him off after 15 ft.A little roadrash and scuffs on bike.Host Uncle Jessie just said,Ive done that dozens of times and we all had a laugh.Now the setting is wayout in the sticks and the cops and neighbors are cool to it.Ive heard that the Rumblers bust their asses too put this on,it would be a shame to see it go.More pictures please of that show to see what I missed.

    The hardest part of rollerblading is telling your parents your gay.

    Sounded like a fun show and a good time until the the fruit booters ruined it.
  15. First time I went and glad I did. It was a great show before it got shut down. Didn't see any mayhem or crazy stuff you might expect in the city and I've lived here all my life. There was one guy who did a burnout on his bike - but it was in the bed of his pickup. Alot more tattoos and mohawk hair than I'm used to seeing but that was on the women anyway. Everyone was polite and waited for you to take a picture - see my photo thread I posted. Usually you can't ever get a clear shot of something and this show was crowded. Hats off to the Rumblers and hopefully there is another show in their future.
  16. For the old timers, "there are a million stories in the Naked City and this has been one of them." Rumblers, great show as usual, and with no way to control entrance it's a real challenge to keep the peace. This show has a vibe like no other, but if the site is no longer available hopefully Rumblers can find another venue. It a 440 mile road trip for us and a shitload of tolls but worth it.

    To be honest, no one knows what happened.

    One thing I do know for certain is that whatever is rumored to have happened did not involve any members of The Rumbers C.C. and it did not happen within the boundaries of the area that the permit for the car show covers.

    . . . and for that, there was no reason for anyone in full riot gear to sweep through the show threatening, arresting, and intimidating people (families with children, the elderly, etc.).

    For all anyone knows something could have happened with a passerby on the street, or something could have happened with a participant, or spectator from the "rollerblading" exhibition in the adjacent parking lot. . . which had well over a thousand attendees filtering in and out throughout the day, and WAS NOT shut down during what the police felt to be a "State of Emergency".

    The NYPD acted completely inappropriately and targeted The Rumblers Car Show based on the appearance, common misconceptions, and stereotypes of the spectators that attend the event.

    The last time I was in NYC was back in the early sixties. I was just a kid and was facinated to see the whole back of buses covered with Black kids hanging on to the bumpers on roller skates.

    I was also impressed by the view from the freeway looking down and seeing the streets looking like they were paved in metal flake, which was really all the broken glass.

    I checked out a bunch of Youtube videos of the 2011 rumblers show and didn't see anything worth shutting it down for. A couple of burnouts and a dude drops his bike doing a wheelie:
    Big deal.

    Cops and snob citizen control freaks need to get the stick out of their asses.

    Back in the day we had cars doing wheelies and burnouts at the hang-outs all the time. No one got hurt. Now-a-days you're expected to keep things at an idle, mosey in to the shows and sit in your lawn chair.

    Thanks Brian, We had a blast. The show was fun, safe and considering where it is was located, very mellow indeed. I brought my son. Folks had strollers. Thanks RUMBLERS for a fantastic event. Can’t wait till next year. Slim

    Here's an heart warming story, a woman took photos of the police at the show. . . once the photos surfaced online the Detective in charge issued this statement:

    "Miss Heather I noticed you have pictures of the car show. The event was larger then allowed. They were permitted for only two blocks but it stretched from Union to Manhattan ave. Several cars and motorcycles started drag racing. I ordered the event closed early and dispersed the crowd we made two arrest and issued numerous summonses. We will not allow them to get a permit next year."

    What's interesting here is that in past years the cops were the ones doing the burnout's (or at least trying to):

    maybe I am being a wuss but no way would I even dream of doing a burnout without a linelock in the middle of that crowd...

    The show will go down in history that's for sure. The NYPD is lucky they didn't have a full scale riot on their hands. Their handing of the situation was pathetic, especially the arrest of the two HA members.. The "officer involved in the mix-up" was in plain clothes and did not identify himself as an officer. before he physically laid hands the unsuspecting arrestee. Additionally the other gentlemen that was arrested was charged with interfering when he inquired what was happening. The situation could have easily been handled better. Through out the day I noticed undercover officers within the crowd. A proactive uniformed police presence especially one to shut down the burn-outs and motorcycle riding antics on the street would have made a world of diffrence.

    That's my opinion if you disagree that's fine.

    On the upside... I had a blast and it was especially cool meeting Alex and Dave Hitchinson and seeing lots of old friends. Thank you Rumblers CC!

  29. Up until the time I left (at 1:00) the show was actually more mellow than past years. I'll be very disappointed if this is the of the show. Congrats and thanks to the Rumblers for putting on one badass show!!!!!!!!
