This is not whining it is about how one is treated in MB. So before anyone jumps on we should obey the new laws why doesn't everyone obey the old laws. Tell me this isn't "do as I say not as I do"?

Just went down the 17 by pass and came back 17 business. What a bunch of CRAP. I counted three MB police cars before I saw the fourth one that had a biker pull over. Then coming back through the Base their were two MB police cars parked an one unmarked at the back gate. In the mean time no one stopped the thirty cars that turned on a NO TURN ON RED cars, no one stopped a car making an illegal turn and no one stopped everyone that was speeding. Is this Right, fair or just down right COMMUNISTIC?

Oh mind you we will abide by any laws always have but we shall also void MB as much as possible. So if you want pro bikers to stay home, those that live here will stay out of MB best of our ability.

The bikers were DEFIANT and warned of their ride. Did they really think there would not be officers waiting for them?
If so they are dumber than I thought.

So what did the bikers prove? Beside donating $100 to MB city coffers and having to deal with court time and wasted legal representation?

Not a damm thing except strengthen MB resident's resolve to rid the community of these bikers and their "defiant ways". I don't understand who is leading these guys. You don't create harmony and empathy with defiance.

Alert!! Alert!! Alert!!

This is for all the harley trash.

You see 200 of you get tickets for not playing by our rules.

You have no right to ride without helmets, only a privilege which you lost for bad behavior.

The loud pipes was your doom.

You lose.

We win.

These are the facts, Jack!

We know you lust to be in our city as it is very attractive, wonderful and magnificent but we have rules.

In order for us to be really great we must get rid of you harley trash people.

It's that simple.

So if you think you fit this characterization then listen up.

You are not welcome here anymore.

Stay out!

Myrtle Beach is very big and the outskirts is your place.

On the outskirts you can get close to Myrtle. It's almost like being there. Almost, but not the real thing.

You can adjust.

Yeah, he thinks he fools people. When he gets outed, he throws a hissy fit and hits new depths of depravity about people's mothers and driving over bikers. He needs to be locked up and heavily sedated.

That is not barn. That is the other fool. This one is a true a twisted loser and we never waste time on, or encourage this very sick loser. I remember some one once had a post about not wanting to go eat out during certain bike events because of all the leather and bad language, but I can assure you that it was not this freak from Durham, whom most of us have little doubt loves leather and fowl language.

• The difference between Horry County and Myrtle Beach.
Horry County did not tell people that if they did not like it then they could just leave, and they did not threaten to impound people’s 20 to 120 thousand dollars motorcycles with a tow truck. They did not write those original rediculess ordinances that included some unreasonable 82db very low idle 20 inch from exhaust, standing still noise test that their own police bikes, could not pass. We have figured out a lot of things, and we know that many people hated our plans to have a Boycott, with out really staying out of Myrtle Beach. You know Boycott and ride. But just incase that did not cause enough disharmony, and financial burden, we thought that just maybe some of the younger, wilder, angrier people that have had enough of all the threats and false accusations might just even want to reap havoc with chaos and Anarchy, or anything else that would cost officials time and money. Hence, Boycott and Anarchy. But most if not all of the Harley Bikers, that have been Judged, slandered, put down and lied about, are nothing more than, good honest, hard working, expectable, responsible, productive members of society. These bikers do not want any part of any anarchy or anything else that would tarnish their image as ordinary Americans that just happen to love motorcycles and they truly do care about their fellow man. We are not the ones spreading the hate; spawn by all the unwarranted fear. The bikers do not want any part of any radical and un-necessary violence or destruction. So the Anarchy part of it just kind of died out. I feel confident that given enough time these whiners like the ones on all the blogs will eventually push even the more passive resistors over the edge or at the very least Mayor Rhodes and his town manager will find a way to cause Atlantic Beach to ignite a powder keg with the black bikers. Once they realize that they have been thrown under the bus by Mayor Rhodes and the town of Atlantic Beaches secret money negations, to end black bike week then everything will blow up. So I know that none of the hater’s words are directed at me, especially since I have always tried, to be friendly and fair to all people. Remember that this soap opera is not even close to being over. So to all you haters I can only say thanks. Keep up the good work, because with people like you, the bikers hardly have to do a thing. We can just sit back and watch you fools self destruct. So stay tuned to for more As the Beach Burns.
