Lee Marvin...now there is a mans man. I was at a funeral at Arlington many years ago and the guy we were burying was within 4-5 markers from him. I loved his movies

It seems their is a preconceived image to whatever motorcycle anyone rides.  That is how we identify a crotch rocket to harley and how our prejudice goes from there.
When riding my Hardknock I'm a "Hardnocker" and when riding my RE I'm a "Bulleteer".  To pretend I'm a "biker" or "duelsporter" would be silly.  We ride these bikes to be different and not the cookie cutter want to bees.  My dad rode knuckleheads when they were new and giggled at the yuppy bikers.  His line was you have to kick start your bike like he did to earn the right to ride.  That is why I ride what I ride.

This incident has probably done more damage to the reputation of motorcyclists than anything in recent history. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVK77U8bgKc

Yes, in AZ we have Hells Angles and Mongols at war, killing each other. They live in a whole different world. They don't harass regular people. The victim here was someone who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
