I kind of understand what you are saying, but I would bet real money, that even if there were a place to practice, a lot of folks would take advantage of it, but these guys would still take it to the street.Here's another thought --- these folks need some kind of vent for their own creativity. They need something to do. While I do not condone impeding traffic at least they found some kind of avenue for their energy and are not spending their time in front of a computer. Some of them are trying to find a way out of their hood so to speak.
There really isn't a place for folks to practice so it's up to them to find a place. So they do their thing and get better over time. Not much different than skateboarders or BMX bicycles. Hell, it's hard enough for US to find a place to safely and legally practice on the wings! I have been saying for years that every major hub should have a place where ppl can come to practice their stunts and what not. Trial lawyers have prevented this from just about every angle you can think of. So ppl use whatever practice pad they can find and often get in trouble with the law. It is what it is.
Again, I am not condoning their actions on public roads but it is the lessor of two evils. I rather they spend hours on their machines instead of hours pushing drugs or thieving. NO, I am not saying they do either of those things but statistically speaking, "hoods" produce a large number of criminals. It is what it is.
I can ge a dirt bike/atv/ whatever for the same price as a PS3. (Play Station is a gaming console for those who are not familiar with it.)
Oddly enough, these "kids" will be MUCH better drivers later in life (when they mature).
Again - I am not siding with the crew in the video. Just throwing another view out there.
