All bicyclists have a right to ride on the street, if that bike has a motor or not has nothing to do with the right to ride on the street. When drivers realize this we will all be safer and there will be no need for a critical mass ride.
I agree that bicycles are very important & have every right to be on the road, but I think those guys are just making motorists hate bicycles with how they do those rides. (IE, I think they're doing more harm than good for the bicycle movement.)
