The NYC crowd is very different from every other EUC group that I see. Basically, a bunch of 20-year guys or guys acting like 20-year old's, who are totally hyped up about speed, speed, and more speed

When I see these idiots bearing down on an innocent family with little kids in hand I almost threw my phone! WTF!! How can anyone  respect these guys! 

I unsubscribed from U-stride.  I went through his replies and didn't realize he was such an utter douchebag. His replies are pissing me off. I'm glad wrongway and @Duf are calling out his bad beh

havent you seen the age poll? Most of the guys here ARE 'old stagers' even tho Im sure they wont admit it. Funny how being 'old' continues to go up in age as people come nearer it.

as a 72 year old rider i am "still" waiting to get old

Agreed. The immature idiots will not change their stripes.

And no matter how emotional one gets insulting any others is just edcalating and wont help neither.

Besides it's against the forum rules to insult others!

Insult? I'm reacting to what I'm seeing in the videos, have you watched them?

Not sure how to interpret this, who is the two immature guys? Sounds kind of like an insult? 🤔

You asked him if he had seen the video.
He's answering yes he's seen the video of the two immature guys who escalate whatever happened before to a fight. (a car driver and a EUC rider, not to name him)

He is calling them immature guys, to contrast to you and @GothamMike who are calling them idiots. The point being that you can express your disagreement without getting to name calling. You guys might be very sure of your case, but not everyone think like you, so let's stay civil, as we are all the idiot of someone else.

"entitled assholes" and "idiots", is pretty far down MY list of personal insults. "immature" is not nearly the insult. Personally I think, anyone resorting to physical violence in today's society, is both engaging in criminal behavior, socially unacceptable behavior and is indeed being immature.   I'm sure I appear to be both immature and an idiot to some people as well. Even so, its not helpful or intelligent to point it out.

@null didnt you know, its the latest thing to attack people personally with insults, when you find something disagreeable? Age and maturity are definitely NOT related, just as wisdom and learning is not related to age. Some poeple seem to quit learning and growing up, at a young age. Plenty of very old people around with a 10yr old grasp on everything. Violent behavior is KING in the jails and prisons. Sometimes I wonder... maybe this kind of person SHOULD take a nice long stay in a facility where their immaturity is a valuable tool. For the rest of us adults, it would be a nice break from them for sure.

Here's a tidbit that people seem to not quite grasp..  Its not YOUR duty to  try to educate another adult publicly(that isnt asking you to). You're just being silly if you think you can change a persons immaturity and ignorance. If these people havent learned it by now, you must realize that YOU damn sure aint gna get it thru their thick skulls.

Point taken I didn't understand he was referring to the people in one of the videos, I stand by my opinions after watching the videos but will keep it to myself.

Problem is, if no-one says anything then they just keep on doing it. One of my hobbies is quietly (sometimes not quietly) pointing out to people that they're being antisocial assh@les. It doesn't bother me whether they're littering, annoying people with loud music or just driving around like maniacs. Sometimes people do occasionally come to their senses and the world becomes a slightly better place and then sometimes it all goes pear shaped. Hey ho.

No, the problem is that you actually believe that saying something will make it stop. When is the last time that pointing out someone is an asshole, got you the adjustment you hoped for? Pointing out to me that I should wear a helmet, pretty much does the opposite. As if I'm so stupid i dont realize the risk and it never occured to me. Same with smoking.. really, its bad for my health? Oh wow, thanks for that, I had no idea, I guess I'll just quit immediately. These people know they are misbehaving. Im sure they also have some convoluted way to justify it in their own minds. Tis good to have hobbies, but I'm not sure yours is one of the better ones. If someoneis so stupid they dont know they are being an asshole, they're probably too stupid to believe you. When I want to be taught, I ask for it. Trying to educate me about my behavior is not in ANYONES job title and its offensive when they try. My momma doesnt even get to tell me what to do anymore. Having some random asshat try and tell me how to behave or what to do, is a pretty bad idea. We have teachers and cops and judges for that kind of thing. You act like a total ass towards me, and you wont get a suggestion, just a quick reminder of consequence. The reality is, I cant control others behavior and wont waste my time. What i can control is... do i need even hang around for it.

It IS fun to point out in a sideways manner, things. Provoking a response but making it appear as I had not intended to.... thats fun. Sideways insults and insinuations... too fun.  Bustin your chops just cuz.... yeah tis fun too : )    You know we love ya mike! Im just on a roll today is all.

Last Sunday morning I found two people doing practice boxing under the windows of a large country house in a park to loud rap music. I quietly pointed that people still lived in the house and that blocking the public footpath while they were boxing wasn't exactly encouraging too others to use the footpath. Surprisingly they were good enough to turn the music down and move elsewhere. During the week I asked the gardeners in the same park if they'd mind taking away all the undergrowth that had all been cut away by volunteers. It had been cut away by volunteers because these gardeners just sleep in their van each day. I was told that I should mind my own business - today I had a meeting with their boss. That's just this week.

Mr. @mike_bike_kite, I adore you! The way you take part in society in this way absolutely makes a huge difference. There are a lot of things people just don’t come to think of, and if you’ve been skillful with your approach, they now just might. Hats off! :cheers:

@ShanesPlanet’s comment is still valid though, one must know what and how to say. Telling people how smoking kills is neither.

Here's an example of insults escalating beyond all reason. It's well worth watching (if you're brave as it's somewhat gruesome) in what not to do.
