california hiway 880 is a few miles from my home, and it runs north into the heart of oakland. i often see angels on 880, usually in packs of two. they seem to be good riders and everyone gives them a wide berth. they don't bother anyone.
however there is a local gang of riders who call themselve the 51/50 (have no idea why) who all ride high-perf sportbikes who ARE a public menace. they are famous for their 60 mph wheelies for miles on end up and down 880. frankly, they frighten me. if they want to risk life and limb more power to ya. but if one were to go cartwheeling out of control (as they sometimes do) they could easily cause a major mishap that could suck nearby cars into a big pileup.
