Well, I was approached today in naperville from a guy that works for the SUN new paper. Since I guess you guys told him I run things he found his way to me and let me know what he was doing and I told him ill get back to him on it.
I guess the program they are doing is called AMERICA 24/7
in which thousands of students, and amateurs are conducting a one week documentary of life across America. They are trying to create a compelling national portrait at a pivotal point in the country's history.
Well, I guess he wants to do bikes.
My question is what do you guys think about this.
We could do ALL KIND of good stuff about US and the way we ride. I think we are a bunch of diverse riders on this board, from street, to raceing,to drag racing, to and not much of stunting.
NOW this could be a double edge sword at the same time...someone, just 1 person messes it up and the whole story could be turned into something like motorcycles that terrorize motorist on city streets. Get my meaning.
Not to mention and I don't know the whole deal but I remember a story on SBN about some guy doing stunts and the reporter got him on camera, later turns into the city wanting to nail the guy and bla bla bla, big trouble for him. Also this could turn into me and Tony leading a bunch of hooligans all over and God knows what then.
But I like to think positive and maybe get people to think about about rocket guys, we have TONS of unity around here and by far we care about ourselves, we really don't stunt that much, but like anyone else we speed from time to time.
This guy asked if we could at some point take a picture of us all lined up to, even maybe following us on a group ride.
once he asked about following following us..(which i don't know the whole story) that SBN story popped in my head and i was LIKE hey this isn't some bad report thing your doing on bikes are ya? he said OH NO!. not to mention he approached me in naperville and well you guys know the story with cops and bikes in that town. so who knows where this could go. plus i didn't get the whole story of what this guy is leaning towards with his story. Weither it be positive or negative, or maybe simply write about what he see's.
If this is something we all want to be a part of...for GOOD. Then I will look into it and try to get some kind of written agreement in which anything that gets documented I get say so weither or not it gets released.
but I highly doubt anything I do can alter what they wanna do cause its free speech and all.
So like I said. Its a 2 way street. we wanna turn head heads with OUR group and show people, not all rocket guys are assholes and more so yes there is great people and nice people that obey the law.
We can totally fuck it up by 1 guy saying the wrong thing, or doing a wheelie or cut cars off or speeding etc. to give a bad look.
I don't know, me personally I would like to show a different outlook with a positive thing about us here at C.L.S.B. and how we are MOST of the time...lol. cause we all know we get frisky from time to time.
What's your thoughts?
