    These immature little showoffs will drop like flies if you give them bigger bikes....skateboards would be a better direction Let's not forget the Sinbad gang days terrorizing the neighborhoods....which is why the 125cc ban was imposed in the first place. The police could not control them thirty years ago.

    some may recall the days of horse ridding then the mini mokes and Volkswagens: we now have faster cars; as a matter of fact the territory now trailer trucks and big old garbage trucks: there are accidents every day however we still continue to allow bigger trucks and faster cars: one thing with some of we, once we don’t like something we want it gone: it is the person using the bike that causes the problems: some of these bikes riders popping wheelies in the heart of Road Town; riding on one wheel all over the mucking place because law enforcement is no where to be found: People will continue acting the fool because they can continue to get away with their dumb muck: we have siblings of law enforcement officers violating the laws of our territory each and every day simply because there is no one to prevent them: we on our knees over bikes while some politicians gone with millions of our territory’s tax money and every man mout shut!!!!
