Exclamation A few bikers giving the rest of us a bad name

Just read an article off yahoo: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/trending...195725090.html

Looked like a crazy stunt to ride into a British mall & pull a heist for some jewelry! Glad no one was hurt physically.

Would have been cooler if they used vintage Brit bikes except they might have left an oil trail for the cops.

I am not condoning their thievery in any way, shape or form. However, how awesome would it be to ride a SuperMoto or naked bike though a mall?

Now, would that be considered a "tool" or "weapon" on the current Knife Carry thread?
