I had a similar problem though....about 10 years ago. Some dope who moved in next to me would come screaming up the hill in front of our house and pull into his driveway at closing hour each night. Any rational thinking human being would probably ride at a moderate speed and at least short shift the bike (HD with open pipes) at that hour. Well, after a few weeks of this, I'd wait until about 4 in the morning and throw a 1/4 stick out my upstairs window and have it land in his driveway next to his bedroom window. So every morning his wife and newborn would get a rude awakening. Fight fire with fire I always say. Within a week, the baffles went back into his straight pipes and he rode up the street at a slower speed and lower rpm. His wife was happier, and I could finally get some sleep.
As an owner of a bike shop (that sells loud pipes), I had to teach this moron that a little common sense can go a long way.
I understand your point. Even though I DO have the drag pipes on my scoot, I DO show the neighbors some consideration. BTW, I've got my own bike shop (customs restorations repair), too.
Either I am naive or just ignorant (possible in this case), but a 1/4 stick of WHAT?
alright #1 you guys are all talking about how this is dangerous and it hurt someone. Well, dont u think that throwing an explosive device out of your window into a persons driveway next to a GLASS window, is dangerous. ESPECIALLY when you say they had a babby in the house. What if he was holding the baby, you throw the explosive by the window, it blows out, and the glass hurts the baby. maybe YOU deserve the @$$ kicking.
#2- no such thing as 1/4 stick. If youre refering to an M-80. then it is soooooooo much less powerfull than a 1/4 stick of DYNAMITE. It is made with flash powder, not nitro glycerine. Also, you can not buy these in the U.S., Also, you can not bring them into the country, IT IS ILLEGAL. and also, you can not make them, IT IS ILLEGAL. so get your facts straight and dont talk about dangerous when you do the same thing and also do very illegal things as well.
"I had to teach this moron that a little common sense can go a long way." aw man dude, enough said. You describe the opposite of what you do with your own sentence.
I just hope that all of you learn from this most "responsible" persons mistakes. I also hope that you do not all hate me for chewing this guy out. I appologize if this has offended you in any way. I am just making a point because i know the people that did this and THEY ARE NOT BAD KIDS. I HAVE BEEN FRIENDS WITH THEM FOR A LONG TIME AND THEY ARE VERY NICE. I DO ADMIT THAT WHAT THEY DID WAS STUPID AND THEY DESERVE TO BE PUNISHED BUT THE PUNISHMENT THAT THEY GOT WAS WAYYYYYYYY TOO HARSH FOR WHAT THEY DID AND HOW MINOR THE INJURIES WERE. THEY NEEDED TO BE TOUGHT A LESSON BUT NOT SUCH A DRASTIC CRUEL PUNISHMENT!!! thank you for reading this, i will stop talking now.
