The tragedy is that 2 young ladies, her daughters, have lost their mother. A person that was their nurturer, confidant, educater, friend, spirtual giver and many many more things that a mother does for all of us. It is a shame that this person responsible gets off with a fine for killing a human being.

Some people have nothing better to do than CONTINUE to post stupid shit on here. I just ran across this fourm and this is my first and only post. Be who you are, if you sit in an office all day then come home and throw a video of EZ Rider in your vcr, that dose not make you a biker. If you spend &25,000 on a H_D, that does not make you a biker. I know alot of douche bags that own Harleys and most of them I wouldent piss on if they were on fire. Yes, I am in an M-C. IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS, YOU ARE NOT A BIKER. We live life to the fullest, family, work, and play. You call us misfits, you people make me sick, you are the misfits. I go to club paties and see yuppy fucks with sneakers and their "Chinese symbol" tatoos pushing strolers with kids in them thinking their bad asses. GO HOME!!! If motorcycle ralleys were a family event, they would have 4 doors. Leave us alone and we will leave you alone.

If the Pioneer Press had bothered to do a little research, it would have known that Saturday was the annual "Flood Run" down Highway 61 in Minnesota and up Highway 35 iin Wisconsin. Many thousands of cyclists were out. The influx of over ten times the normal cycle traffic may have been a contributing factor in the accidents.

True, a helmet is going to make no difference to the guy getting crushed by a semi. To the guy getting thrown from his bike and landing on pavement or against a stationary object, it will probably save his life. But I'm not sure what your point is, to be honest with you. I get it, you choose not to wear a helmet. You didn't answer my previous question: do you wear a seatbelt in the car? Why or why not? Do you put this much energy into arguing with people who wear them?
There is one thing that helmets do protect you from in minor accidents, brain injuries that cause epilepsy , nothing like going thru life having seizures when you least expect them.

the last thing in the world you would ever need or want is to fuck with me and a LOT of others while they are on their bike. This whole statement comes from a real weenie. I guarantee you would not have the guts to just pull over and take care of business. Go put your mom's dress on and write some more gay poetry in your emotionally charged pink diary and pull up your yahoo messenger and sex chat with those guys you met last week... you know, the ones that are pathetic enough to believe you're really a chick and that you'll eventually put out. Stay out of conversations you don't belong in. Grown-ups are talking. You'll have your chance when you're a big girl.

Well here was a guy that wanted true freedom. Now he has it.
A family is grieving for him family - I would suppose. If you can't understand how much irony there is in this story......you just don't get it.
Go strap on the helmet. There are cool ones out there with the American flag, your favorite football team, you can even personalize one. Go for it. Won't make you any less of a rebel. Aren't your loved ones worth it?

Myself...I refuse to ride anymore unless I am in a side-car. And I won the Michigan 300 in 1998. And even in the sidecar I will wear a helmet and full body gear.
People have such little regard for human life these days they look at bike enthusiasts as pure folly and fools. People not to be taken seriously.
Why invite trouble? Let's be big boys and girls and get a car.

I was just reading through this site... this forum. WOW. You people are lame as hell. I thought I was going to read posts from bikers, patch holders, probates and prospects, hang-arounds, etc. I am just a probate. Still have a lot to learn. But come on... I see a lot of pure bullsh*t here. Get online and people just turn into freakin super men. Hahaha.
For anybody here who is real (club, independant, or whatever) why bother? I could see where this would have once been a decent site. On this page alone all but maybe one post is bull. Mr. Public... well said.
That will be all from me. Say and post whatever the hell you want about it.

hey that really wasn't the intention of my post. I don't care what anybody comments. Say what you want. As I have said what I wanted to say.
And people will alwways bullsh*t. Its why this site and so much of the internet is full of it.
Why would one man call another "scum" for riding a harley. Some yuppie buys an FLH as his first bike, watches some sons of anarchy, wears a fake cut and suddenly he is a biker.
Some guy watches an episode of "gangland" and suddenly he is an expert on the m.c. world and has his opinions fed to him (or her) direct from americas media. The same guy who'll spray gravel in the eyes of a man on a bike might very well be the same guy who'll protest the military actions over seas at the funeral of a soldier who was killed defending his freedom.
And the same guy defending him might be the neighborhood tree jumper.
Not every comment here is bogus. And not every asshole is a douche bag.
But this forum was about something unfortunate for a Lot of people. To them this subject is very serious. Something they live with. Something that has torn a part of their heart from them.
But to a lot of the people commenting here, reality is confusing to them so this is where you find them. And that's why we have what we have on this forum and pretty much any other forum mentioning motorcycle clubs.

Hey, I know all you old folks are new to this whole internet thing, but it is bad form to keep a thread this off topic going for this long. Start a new one if you want to talk about this.

So...basically, you're saying unless you're part of an organized crime, meth manufacturing "MC" you're a wannabe?? Hmmm...that's pretty intelligent.

Please don't even bother to try and patronize me now. It's only after I pointed out facts that YOU decided to show that you're "in tune" with whats going on. You don't have a clue and you never will until you ride with me. Or with my club.
If you really want to impress me, try showing up at the REAL biker events in town.
Like....
The Bike Blessing in Oak Creek.
The Biker Ball in Oak Creek
Border Riders Pig Roast.
Pearl Harbor Days on South 2nd...I'll bet you your title you've never been there and never will be. If you've never heard of these clubs, or gone to any of their funtions...You're a wanna-be, and nothing more.
Trogs MC
Saints MC
Road Runners MC
Outlaws MC
Border Riders MC
CC Riders MC
Black Pistons MC
Union Riders MC
VOA MC
DMZ MC
High Riders MC
The list goes on and on. So...go buy more "made in China" T-Shirts, go watch more Sons of Malarkey, and keep on telling yourself...Yeah, I'm a biker. And we'll just keep on laughing at you.
