Anyone know about the Motorcyle Swarm on Georgia Ave?
I have witnessed an intriguing phenomenon over the past year or so and am just curious if anyone knows anything about it: A large group of motorcycle, quadricycle and three-wheeled bikes buzzing around and zipping through traffic on Georgia Avenue like a swarm of locusts. They pop the most amazing wheelies, zip around cars, cutting off traffic, and making the craziest illegal turns I’ve ever seen. On the one hand, the Grown Up in me says, “My, my…what a menace!” But the casual observer in me is entranced by their audacity and skill. (And that said, I am certainly not endorsing such behavior…I just find it so….fascinating….) Last night we witnessed a police officer attempt to pull them over, but my heart went out to her as it was clear the situation was more than one officer could deal with. They were driving on the sidewalks, riding in circles in the intersection of Georgia Ave. and New Hampshire…seemingly oblivious to the cars around them and giving no regard to the officer. Stunning. – It seems the group of daredevils is getting smaller and smaller over time, as last night’s display consisted of less than half of what we’ve seen even 6 months ago. I’m wondering what happened…did they get abducted by aliens? Join the circus? Get day jobs? I would love to hear any thoughts members of the PoPville community might have about these guys. Thanks much!
