Master 1779 - Tape 1 Rear view TLSs middle-aged white man driving motor scooter with sidecar in which young white man and woman sit; the gang pulls away from suburban house in Los Angeles, California, then tools along winding steep roads, going much too fast for their own good, several times the sidecar tipping off the ground. The gang take dangerous right hand turns into traffic without stopping-- are they out of control or just reckless idiots? Probably a little of both, but the camera trails close behind nonetheless. TLS/MS scooter crew speeding past "Dangerous but Passable" sign posted at foot of dirt road. TLS/MSs scooter crew speeding down steel hills, taking sharp turns in residential district. MS newspaper stuck in driver's face, preventing him from seeing the road ahead. TLS/MSs scooter crew driving onto lawn, inadvertently chasing down and forcing white male owner mowing grass with push mower to plow a stripe through a flower garden, then chase him into tree.
