Let's not stereotype bikers either. Yea I know many have a rep. One group
I was associated with years ago looked just like the typical biker scum.
One policy for membership was zero alcohol and drugs. There are many
positive examples but this is first hand experience. Oh, and American
Yep, had a chopper I built from scratch - hardtail, king-queen seat,
custom paint, z-bars, 22" over front end :-)
Easy to do. My wife & I were going to a new watering hole a few years
ago to see a new band we had heard a lot about. Come running up to the
front and see all these motorcycles lined up with a bunch of scraggly
dudes hanging out. Wife wanted to leave but then I noticed the colors.
Told her all would be well and you would be probably be safer in that
bar that night than at home. It was a meeting of the Iron Pigs, so they
were all cops and fire dudes.
To find that place where the rats don't race
and the phones don't ring at all.
Forgive me for the thread drift but my favorite was the guy who saw
the FDNY firefighters doing "Fill the Boot" for the Muscular Dystrophy
Labor Day Telethon. He sees the firefighters going into a bar to drop
off the proceeds and decides to rip it off. He didn't realize that
the bar was a New York City Police watering hole and that they were
doing the counting and providing the security for the firefighters.
He didn't even get to say anything before realizing he was looking at
more Glock pistols than you could find at a very good gun show. Sucks
to be him.
I have no way of knowing if it was true or not, but there was a story of
how, back in the pre-direct-deposit days, some fool tried to knock over
a branch bank a couple blocks from FBI headquarters, and just happened
to pick late afternoon on the day the paychecks were handed out.
Supposedly about 20 armed agents were in line waiting to make their
deposits. Talk about an Aw Shit moment...
Sorry....it's an age related stereotype...last time I paid any attention
to anything biker related was a very, very long time ago...before it was
fashion for doctors, dentists and stock brokers to own Harleys :o)
