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.

Sheesh, kids these days. I blame tv, movies and video games.

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?
