So in other words, as long as the government describes someone as an outlaw, you believe that whatever they want to do to harass them is justified?

My suburb isn't small but if they came through town and started anything I'd probably be on their side.

Well said I agree. "Between eastern Oregon and eastern Washington we probably have the highest percentage of rednecks per capita in the country." Definitely, even though my home town in Colorado is a ranching community (however it is near a ski resort) I think there are areas of Washington and Oregon that are much more hick and isolated.

May I suggest that your next ride should be to Saudi Arabia or even better yet, Sudan. They don't take kindly to strangers there either, believe that anyone who doesn't look or think like them is an infidel/criminal, believe in presumption of guilt, and impose harsh justice for relatively minor offenses. Yep, I think simpatico is within your reach.



Dude in our country we have a presumption of innocence in criminal matters. Have you heard of it? Police do not have the right to hassle anyone unless they are suspected, by better than flimsy evidence, or mere dislike, of a criminal act. Riding a motorcycle into a small town is not a criminal act and in spite of the thorough working over that these folks got no evidence of any serious wrongdoing was uncovered.



I mentioned this to one of my friends, who happens to be local police chief, and his take was that taken at face value it reflected very poorly on his profession. In his view no citizen in this country should ever, under any circumstances have to fear the police unless they are engaged in criminal activity and even then they should be handled professionally and with appropriate decorum. Not harassed.

The LAPD Metros use to like to test out their batons on my then-new TX500 Bell helmet.



One time they hit me so hard (after a long persuit) that the club wrapped around my helmet, leaving a black mark like a big smile across the top.



That got my attention.



Another time riding back from Freeloader Falls in Little Tujunga the Briggs Pigs (Briggs Sheriff Station in La Crecenta) chased us all the way into Silverlake, through Glendale and finally caught us with the helicopter. We took a good beating, and they let us go. Street justice. Glad they didn't shoot us.

All you city dwellers don't get it. Out here in the Kountry, folks is SCARED of bikers. LOL!



I moved out here to rural VA from city life in Germany, and there's several worlds of difference.



I'll bet that Sherrif is a hero in that town.



Lesson learned: Keep a low profile.

Default Oh, and another thing...

I'll bet the AMA puts a lot more effort into this than they did in the shakedown of the Red Fox dual-sport run.



If you don't know what I'm talking about, you haven't been paying attention.

I didn't even know Red Fox rode a motorcycle, much less a dual-sport.



Guess that makes me a "big dummy".



Wonder what Aunt Ester had to say about it?

I thought Red bit it? Man that dude was funny. Is Lamont running it?



Would involvement with Motorcycles be a step up or down from the Salvage business?
