    This is what contributes to bad names for bikers. Idiots.

    DENVER -- Hundreds of bikers 'killed da streetz' Sunday afternoon as they rode through Denver roadways in order to raise awareness of motorcyclists on the road.

    During one their rides, the bikers momentarily shut down northbound I-25 near University Boulevard by performing tricks such as wheelies and donuts in the middle of the interstate. Hundreds of drivers were stalled. Many of them were upset by the demonstration.

    "People that ride bikes recklessly and endanger everyone around them ruin it for the rest of us bikers who truly love to ride! I can only hope they get thrown in jail so I can enjoy the road without people hating me for just being on a motorcycle," said on person on Facebook.

    "A lot of people were mad, but you know what, at the end of the day we’re all safe and everybody’s had a great day,” said one of the riders who asked not to be identified.

    "[We] Had a couple cars try to cut us off and whatnot, but we were all able to steer around them and block them off,” said Brittany Casper, who rode in the event.

    "I was driving in this as a large group got on 25 from 70. It was one of the most dangerous things I have ever seen on the freeway. They were weaving in between traffic in close proximity, doing tricks, and driving in the marginal - many were videotaping each other. All in freeway traffic. It was certainly not a 'look twice to save a life' biker event," said another upset commenter on the Denver7 Facebook page.

    The bikers gathered in the area of Interstate 70 and in Northfield at 11:30 a.m., according to information released on a Facebook event page.

    Casper said they rode as far north as Thornton, as far east as Aurora and south to Greenwood Village before ending the ride near I-25 and Colfax.

    Riders told Denver7 the second annual event is a great way to make friends and bond as motorcyclists.

    "I like motorcycles, you know? I’ve got my family with me, all my family honestly, I do what I do because it’s a thrill you know, it’s awesome,” said one rider who also asked not to be identified.

    "We ride on two wheels, four wheels move the person, two wheels move the soul,” said another rider.

    The group alleges the event was created to raise awareness of the dangers motorcyclists face on a day-to-day basis every time they take the road.

    Not the best way to garner support I'm thinkin. If I'm not mistaken, a couple of laws were broken :homer::homer::homer:

    The way to do it is to leave a GOOD impression, not create an inconvenience and anger people. This was not the right way to go about it. Sad really.

    S.F does the same thing with their monthly "Critical Mass" day. Between that and blowing through stop signs, they don't engender very much good will.

    There's a special category for people that dodge in and out of traffic, pop wheelies (and stoppies) on the highway, block the roads, and generally endanger lives. They're called "Organ Donors". I rode for many years (arthritis and vertigo have put an end to that) and I always respected the bike, and the other vehicles on the road. Failure to do so may test the limits of your health insurance coverage.

    As a big supporter for riding, this is just a major flippen fail. Wanna keep up awareness? Print some bumper stickers and have C-DOT put something in the LED boards an the highway.

    This is just as much of a fail is the idiots with AR-15s in a damn Walmart preaching "it's my right" (Dave Chappell voice) and having no magazines and ammo on them. Idiots. Then they try to tell cops the law and wonder why they are in the back of a squad car.

    Funny story. This year on Independance day, we went up to some of the mountains that are next to the city for the fireworks. It was very crowded and we decided to go back and there were a few cars/SUVs that decided to park in the middle of the road and block everyone. One car decided to say "we ain't moving. Tough shit"... Well that didn't work out to well for them. I asked her name so I could direct the angry 40 guys to her personally. She then insinuated that they were prepared for our asses (armed) and it got a little foggy after that. She moved... Best not to call someone out if your not prepared to back it up. Guess she failed to realize that she is not the only one with a weapon in the US.

    the second one makes a mistake and gets run over by a driver, they would be on the driver like hornets. Looks like they aren't doing anything but putting everyone at risk to me. I always wanted a motorcycle, but decided against it because of others on the road.

    I always chuckle when the militant ones crow about having the right of way. Where physics in concerned, a 3 ton truck always has the right of way regardless of any man-made law, and thats exactly how I ride.

    Just like with any motor vehicle, 2 wheels, 4, wheels, up to 18 wheels, there are good operators and bad operators.
    My one sister-in-laws husband does the Patriot Guard rider and is an avid motorcycle rider. He and his buddies are great examples of how riders should conducted themselves.

    Driving is a Privilege if you can't or won't follow the rules then face the consequences. One of the reasons why I now have a dash cam...
