Any bigger city in michigan seems to have a hood now. I'm from Saginaw and we just made #1 on violent crimes per capita on the FBI list. We were normally around 3rd with Flint being #1, but evidently we stepped our game up. I think you're fine as long as you're on the bike or keep it in the garage. I've had to take detours through the hood where there was 4 boarded up houses to one non boarded and as long as you keep moving you're fine haha. So i would mainly avoid the Hood of Detroit, Flint, Saginaw. All of these cities have nice sides, and side you don't want to be on, so just be smart. By the way, don't forget, as long as you're on it, no one can catch you!
Where you guys from in MI?
Thats some serious ********... I hope they catch those assholesIm from Flint, and there are a few gangs running around the city. My old lady lived next to a guy who was tight with one of them, hes holding 3-5 stolen bikes in his garage. What they have been doing lately is simply pulling up next to a crotch rocket (obvisously on rockets themselves) reaching over and turning the key, pulling it from the ignition, & pulling a gun and shoving it in the face of the poor bastard they are jacking. Takes a total of 3-5 seconds.
I would stay away from Detriot, Lansing and Saginaw.
I would recommend riding in the UP (just watch for deer... and moose), or anywhere on the costline.
Just be leery of someone pulling up right next to you at a stoplight... esp if they're a group of riders wearing the same color and a few of them have guys as passengers. Get your a$$ out of that situation ASAP.Thats some serious ********... I hope they catch those assholes
Seeing as how this is going on and I have no reason to be there anyway, I think I'll just stay away from flint lol.Just be leery of someone pulling up right next to you at a stoplight... esp if they're a group of riders wearing the same color and a few of them have guys as passengers.

Problem with Flint is that there are only 4 police patroling at any time(not a fact, just guessing). The latest news I've heard is that if there is an EMERGENCY, the police response time would be DAYS. Literally DAYS... and if anyone witnesses anything go down, nobody talks to the police. Its the freaking wild west here :gun1::gun1::gun1::gun1::gun1::gun1::gun1::gun1:
HAHA I hear ya. I avoid going downtown Flint where ever possible. This place is a big ****-hole and its only getting worse... the natives get restless when it gets warm out :gun1:Seeing as how this is going on and I have no reason to be there anyway, I think I'll just stay away from flint lol.
