Ride of the Century 2012 in St. Louis
Check out the YouTube clips we've posted below  from the Streetfighterz Ride of the Century 2012.

In the first one, watch how the Missouri State Highway Patrol tried to swoop in and contain the swarm of motorpsychopaths motorcyclists who came across a roadblock on 370 at the Earth City Expressway and then started going the wrong way up an entrance ramp:





Here's an extended stunt:

And you need to start acknowledging the"start seeing motorcycles"signs because most of the time when an idiot in there car runs me off the road there mirrors get kicked off there cars when I pass them again...moral of the story, start seeing motorcycles if you like where your mirrors were originally installed

All of you fucktards are ass backwards for starters what excessive speeds the highest speed ever reached is maybe 65 and yes the only way any of you ass holes in your cars see us is if we do something crazy to force you to see us I was just forced to take the shoulder yesterday because some dick weed was too busy talking on the phone to see the motorcycle just outside his drivers window when he swerved at me

I was with that group that got stopped on 370 and the only really dangerous acts were done by the police officers.  How can you shutdown a highway when only a couple ppl were doing stunts?  Running bikes off the road, pulling guns on bikers?  Why cant you protect us for one day?  Let us have a little fun.  Funny thing is when we arrived into IL we were greeted with kindness by the cops, even getting waived at and pics, as soon as we got back into MO back to cop and helicopter "escort" R.O.C. 2013!?!  HAD A BLAST EITHER WAY!

It is unfortunate that the police thought they needed to do something. In the first video, no violations were done, but the police started a chase when none was warranted. The most dangerous acts were by the police racing down the shoulder, then the two collisions. the one in the grass was no clear the fault. The one on the ramp, the patrol car swerved to make contact. While both riders were not then obeying traffic laws (in the grass and wrong way on the ramp), using a squad car to hit a motorcycle can be just as lethal as pulling out their guns. This is not how a trained and professional police force should handle the situation.

I would like to give a personal thanks to the former head of the Florida ABATE chapter. Thanks to her efforts at repealing Florida's helmet law, and her accident without a helmet, my friend Slo Joe Recumbo is still alive with her liver inside of him, who had a Hepatitis C infection.

The real problem here is that this has been going on for 10 years now and the city wont facilitate it in any way. Instead they go on a scare campaign and get everyone all worked up. the fact is the vast majority of the people on this ride don't act that way but they label them as saying look out for thousands of stunt bike riders. I guarantee you that on any day of the week there are more people driving like maniacs up and down the high way in their cars than on bikes.

This ride puts a bad rap out for other bikers. Just like these young kids who watch Fast and Furious. Always going to have bad apples but this "cruise" is known for being bad apples and breaking the law. Someone lays one down and a car cant swerve and they run them over then they trie to sue them for their stupidity.

I love how your negative spin brings out all the people that now want to lynch bikers. small percentage of them were out of line. but you can see that for your self as these videos pour on to the internet of the cops abusing their power. I see things from both sides but it is sad that your soccer mom will run you off the road while your one two wheels because shes to busy talking on her phone and yelling at her kids but actually see you when your on 1.

This is mob action like the Occupy  movement  on wheels. Looks like the cops did put a damper on their stupid tricks. One of these crazy fuckers was shown on the news Friday riding his cycle standing up backwards! Insanity rules.

 

CALL 911, MAKE A COP COME.

Evading police, they were speeding, some with no helmets, some with no plates, improper lane usage, failure to yield, excessive acceleration. The list can go on, they only got away with it b/c they were on bikes. Car guys would be sitting ducks. They wont to do that and drive like idiots, treat them like they would any other car chase. Throw down spikes since they are already commited several acts that are considered felony charges, shoot bean bags at them. They were running off other motorist and I saw 6 guys lay their bike down yesterday alone.

Personally, I believe stunts are only dangerous if the people doing them don't know how. As far as the first video: The Highway Patrol set up a roadblock on 370 and the Earth City Expressway, but the riders either didn't see it or didin't heed it, so when they went past it, the patrolmen tried to stop them going the wrong way up the entrance ramp. Not a good situation for anybody involved.

Saw them all over the place. I Do love how they ride 5 inches off your bumper, then do 120 passing you. When I see one of these stickers, "Start seeing Motorcycles" I laugh my ass off. Stop driving like A-holes in traffic and maybe would could see you so we don't make you into a pile a hamburger on the pavement.

Yeah...I caught seeing some of these idiots on the road! Are you kidding. I want to just laugh when I see those signs "Start seeing Motorcycles". How can you miss them when they're trying to kill themselves on the road and others. I have to wear a seat belt. But they can act like idiots on the road endangering others with their antics! I don't mind seeing groups of motorcyclists but I swear they have their own set of road rules...at least they always act like it!

it looks like they were just riding, I didn't see any excessive speed or dangerous stunts, is there a law against riding with a group?

From the headline and article, you'd get the impression they were riding through traffic on a highway which was going the opposite way. That's not the case in the video. It shows traffic at a stop due to a roadblock and some of the motorcycles driving towards the nearest exit to avoid the roadblock, yes the wrong way. 

 

However, look at the roadblock - when has this ever happened? Papers Please!
