The passenger on the scooter jumps off and walks up to the motorcycle before starting to fiddle with it while buddy dirtbag is keeping watch. Only a few seconds into their mischief, a little car pulls up and slows down as the driver notices the two weirdos standing there toying with a bike, something he probably understood as not being kosher.
