Hell,I could watch those jokers do wheelies way easier than some flip-flopped, tank-topped yahoo on a punched out,nitrous 1 liter machine.
I guess the bozuzoku is breeding/selection grounds for the yakuza.
That Suzuki GT380 or 550 in the second vid had like megs on it or some really funky chambers. Still sounded good though. Cool videos. When my buddy was stationed in Okinawa he was always talking about Bosozoku and their loud ass crazy looking bikes.
if they rode around here with bikes that look like that, they would need martial arts skills.
ps...every time i see those bozuk bikes, i can't help but grin. that said, i'd venture a guess that they may find the biker gang types here pretty silly looking (hair, bellies and tatoos...you do the math) and i'm sure my riding around my neck of the woods on my little rig with old leathers on gets a chuckle as well.
I think their point is to be as obnoxious and attention-getting as possible. The whole thing is very tongue in cheek in the sense that japan is a very reserved place and to be outlandish and obnoxious pushes you to the fringes of society very quickly. I don't think they think their bikes look "hardcore or badass" in the way that american "biker gangs" view their bikes.
they are no more a recruiting ground for the yakuza than an american street gang is a recruiting ground for the mob. meaning just by being in a bozosoku crew you are not guaranteed a place in the yakuza but if you are ruthless, shrewd, and merciless it certainly gives you an outlet that people would be looking at.
So the new box is 1 taco a drink plus a new grilled cheese burrito. I have had about 3 of them by now. The burrito is ok with their sauce its better but just giving a shout out have you guys tried the new "Grilled cheese burrito"?
It was good to see MotoGp back and how well everyone dealt with distancing at the track (in the pits) even with the heat they took the rules with serious respect and no one got DQ'd for breaking them. They'll be back next weekend to see how much they learned on this first outing.
Was sad to...
