Six-Year Old Gets Reckless Driving Ticket on Mini-Motorcycle

mini_bikeGael Noriega was ticketed last month for reckless driving. Noriega is only 6, so I’m guessing that reckless is the only way that he knows how to drive.

Still, police in Ciudad Jerez decided to give the boy a ticket after he crashed his gas-powered minibike into an SUV. But the police weren’t satisfied with giving Noriega a reckless driving ticket. They also gave him a ticket for driving without a license and for having an unregistered vehicle. Oh, and they confiscated the bike.

The Inquisitr reports that the 6-year-old had to pay $183 to get his minibike back. Which according to my calculations, would take about 183 days to payoff in the lemonade stand business.

Due to the ridiculousness of the situation, Noriega’s parents decided to go to the media. The fines have since been dropped and city council secretary Hector Arceluz said that the officers would be punished for their behavior.

Motorcycle Vs. Car: Drift Battle 2 [Video]

drift_battleWant to see some motorcycle porn? Nick “Apex” Brocha is back for the follow up to the wildly popular Motorcycle Vs. Car Drift Battle.

Brocha and his teammate Ernie Vigil tear up the roads in High Plains County but soon the local authorities step in to try and stop the fun.

“Nick ‘Apex’ Brocha is back and this time he brought his Empire teammate, Ernie Vigil. The two are mounted on a pair of crackling Triumph Speed Triples… Low traffic, perfect asphalt and endless twisties have kept them busy resurfacing roads with their rear tires for weeks. The only problem is the local authorities have had enough. Enter Police Officer Dan Brockett, the only man with the muscle to keep these two in sight. His 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was built for speed and he’s got a license to use it…”

Here’s Motorcycle Vs. Car Drift Battle 2.

Dunlop Roadsmart 2 Sport Touring Tires Now Available!

Sport-touring riders constitute a very experienced and savvy sector of the motorcycling scene, and they continue to place a premium on multiple tire expectations

Outstanding wet-weather performance, linear and responsive handling traits, traction characteristics on par with sport tires and extended tread life – all in one tire. All of these qualities were present in the popular first-generation Roadsmart, and now these virtues have been elevated in the new Dunlop Roadsmart II Tires to create a higher level of performance for the long-haul crowd

Immediately evident is the new tread pattern on both front and rear Roadsmart II tires. The front tire still incorporates Dunlop’s readily recognized cosecant-curve groove pattern. The shape and placement of these grooves are newly designed to promote even tire wear up front, and they also stiffen the pattern for reduced tire squirm and extended tire life. Additional grooves also help improve wet-weather performance thanks to a greater sea-to-land ratio that helps promote water dispersion.

  • New tread rubber compounds include silica to help deliver impressive performance in wet conditions while also extending wear
  • New cosecant-curve tread pattern helps promote even tire wear and stiffens the pattern for reduced tire squirm and extended tire longevity
  • Increased tread depth further promotes water channeling while also extending tire mileage
  • MT Multi-Tread rear tire incorporates a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire tread and a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder to enhance cornering performance and provide class-leading grip and feel
  • Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) intuitively allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering and provides remarkably linear steering at various lean angles, and puts down a bigger footprint at extreme lean angles, for enhanced grip and handling

Miss California More Into Motorcycles Than Pageants

natalie_packNatalie Pack was recently crowned Miss California but the 22-year-old junior from UC Irvine says that she’s never really been into pageants. Instead, Pack says that she grew up as a tomboy and spent most of her time riding motorcycles.

“I had no experience,” she said on KTLA Morning News on Monday. “I’ve always been a tomboy. I ride motorcycles. I don’t do beauty pageants.”

Last year’s Miss California, Alyssa Campanella, ended up winning the Miss USA pageant and finished 16th at Miss Universe.
