I think that as long as the kids are riding safe, then leave them alone. What would people rather see kids doing---doing or selling drugs or riding and ATV????? What else is there to do in this community? The person that started this must be jealous or something.

We need to support our kids! In my oppinion, if the younger generation had more to do, like riding their dirt bikes, four wheelers, etc. maybe they woudn't end up on drugs. When people keep taking constructive things away from these kids, what else do they have to turn to. They don't go any faster on their dirt bikes than these older guys do on crotch rockets, and cars. I say, MOM's...Turn them loose and brag on them!!!
totally agree

I agree. The motorcycles and 4-wheelers do not go no where near as fast as those crotch rockets. Let the kids ride and have fun. If they would put something in this area for kids to do maybe so many of them want end up on drugs. They talked about putting something in the old A and P building and nothing is there yet; and in the building in Whitesburg beside Dairy Queen and nothing there yet either; they took away the movie theater in Whitesburg. Leave the kids alone.

Isn't it illegal for minors to be riding motorcycles on the roadways? Not only that isn't it unsafe? Why would any parent want their child doing something illegal or unsafe?

Welcome to Eastern Ky!!!

Most teens get on their "bikes" and ride to the next holler for a joint....true story!!

The comments above is the reason why Ky has such a bad name for being ignorant!

OK let's let these kids have some fun I agree. Kids are gonna be kids, but the first time one of these kids riding up and down the roads gets hit by a drunk, or by a pilled out loser, don't go crying to some lawyer wanting money, because your precious child got killed!!! When it does happen, I hope I read it in the Mountain Eagle, that your but is going to jail for letting them do it!!! HAHAHAHA JUST WAITING, BECAUSE IT"S JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS!!! I"M SURPRISED IT HASN"T ALREADY....

I can't believe some of the things I have read on here. Wilma correcting everyone while being a donkey's hiney and using the word "ideal" incorrectly. Honey, don't throw stones because your grammar is not perfect either. Comparing crotch rockets (if I understood correctly this person was talking about leagal drivers) to illeagal drivers on dirt bikes is like comparing apples and oranges. The legal drivers on crotch rockets (that ride sensibly) have every right to be on the road. The minors on dirtbikes and atv's have the right (in my opinion only) to travel on the road to get to a safer place for them to ride. With neighbors constantly being nosy and threatening to call the police on them, I can understand why they may go a little faster than they probably should. They are trying to get by these nosey neighbors that are trying to cause trouble. It really upsets me to see what SOON wrote: "...I hope I read it in the Mountain Eagle..." You hope to read of a child's death because they were on a dirtbike instead of out theiving and using drugs? You are one sick individual! Get help please.
Now on to the positive statements. I agree that the community center has created a center for only the older people. The same is true with most community centers in our area. Has this been addressed at one of the community meetings? If not it should be. It would nice if a few of the men/parents/etc. would step up to volunteer and each take a weekend to organize a dirt bike/ atv ride, camping trips and the such for some of the youth to participate in. Just a thought.
I would much rather see our youth riding than using drugs. We need more positive influences in the community, especially for the boys.

This is to the last comment to OMG!!!! Ok, first of all you misunderstood my comment. I wrote I hope I read in the Mountain Eagle to see the parent or parents being prosecuted !!! Not only is it illegal for underage kids to ride ATV's, dirtbikes, go-carts, etc. up and down the highway, I can't believe you as a parent would let your child do this! Don't they call this neglect, you are the guardian of this child until they are 18. So if they get out here and hit a church bus full of innocent children going to church or something, LET ME GUESS, you'll tell the Police I've told them a hundred times not to be riding that thing up and down the road... I've had these things fiying up and down past my house, All HOURS OF THE DAY AND NIGHT!!! I've even seen some kids, that couldn't have been over 8 years old, and some small little kids that couldn't have been much older with parents or whoever on the back, with no helmets on or nothing! Fact of the matter is, theres too many dang drunks and druggies out there, people that shouldn't be driving up and down these roads, Period!! But Neither Should ATV's, Dirtbikes, or anything that is illegal... Someone is seriously going to get hurt, and a little 4-wheeler doesn't stand a chance up to a 2000lbs automobile!!!!! Thank You

I agree...I've almost hit what looked like babies to me riding 4-wheelers, motorcycles and go carts. People! As a parent, your first job is keeping them safe. That's priority. No, my children don't own either one - and they won't as long as I have to pay to get them one. Once they're old enough to buy their own, they're adults and I'll just yell at them... I don't drive fast, and I try to take care when I'm driving, but children have no idea that they can really be hurt - it's always the other guy. There are city parks all over, nice ones - take them to the park, but please, PLEASE keep them off of the roads on those things...

I would like to express my opinion like you all.
First of all, I have children, and they are VERY young. Naps are interrupted, and the noise of the dirt bikes, 4 wheelers, and motorcycles scare them to death. Not to mention wake working people up! The parents need to be more considerate of others. And if you DO NOT have kids, and you support the recreation of the bikes, wait 'til you have some kids of your own. THEN you will be running outside on your porch, cursing the motorcycles yourselves! Paybacks are hell. HA!
