    Hello, my name is Ivan, new member and would like your feedback

    Well SW you’re wrong, I used to ride my motor bikes like that especially on a Friday night :p but that was in the early 80’s. back then a friend lost his arm and another his life, I’ve long since grown up, grown old and grown a respect for the law.;)
