SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — A group of dozens of bikers pulled stunts and wheelies during a sideshow on the Golden Gate Bridge Saturday, bringing heavy Fleet Week traffic to a halt.

The sideshow involved dirt bikes and sport bikes popping wheelies just after the Blue Angels took to the skies.

The riders first took to the northbound lanes before turning around to head south on the bridge, stopping traffic on both sides.

“The Golden Gate Bridge is not a playground. It’s a vital part of the Bay Area infrastructure, and these motorcyclists put dozens of drivers who are in the immediate vicinity in danger,” Bridge Spokesperson Priya Clemens said.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating the incident, which was not the only sideshow in the Bay Area this weekend.

Another sideshow took place on the Bay Bridge. In that incident, some of the motorcyclists involved crashed into each other. One person was cited in that incident.

    I wish the media would use different words for motorcyclists and bicyclists. Using “bikers” for both, especially in headlines, is really confusing.

      Given that you are a parent, you are probably not too bright to begin with and it is understandable why you would be easily confused. Most parents in the Bay Area are too stupid to exercise common sense. The reason so many “mothers” choose to be stay-at-home moms is because they have little to contribute to the workforce.

    With INCREDIBLE TECHNOLOGY AT THE FINGERTIPS OF OVERPAID PUBLIC OFFICIALS, can’t you get the license plates of these losers???

  3. JQP says:

    Any motorcyclists OR cars pulling these stunts need to have their vehicles confiscated and destroyed as a matter of public safety. Aren’t there cameras on the bridge?

  4. Ralphy says:

    How are people surprised that this sort of thing would happen in SF? This is a city that celebrates phag on phag public touching and tell society that transgenders are normal. What do you expect people to think of basic rules when you have the dopes running this city cheering on the freaks who are busy burrowing into each other’s backsides?

  5. This is why I shed no tears when one of these losers go down. An asphalt funeral is exactly what these dumb-aszes deserve. Since the silly stunt is in the middle of a bridge, why didn’t CHP go after them from both sides…should have been easy to capture all of them. Personally, I’d throw them and their Harleys over the side of the bridge…give them all a bath.

  6. Last thing this happened, the ring leader of these asz-holes was actually a cop.

  7. Sideshows are the ultimate expression of ghetto, no-class males. It’s like a little bunch of babies crying for attention…look at me, look at how cool my wheelies are, look at me, I’m such a doosh-bag. No really, your kind deserves jail and probably a firing squad or public hanging.
