ummm......ya....did i miss something??????...

there's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes
it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
and like fools we trust the delivery
but it's all just drunk sincerity

i live in the valley, and have heard much about this crappy MC Hammer scheme. DPS will have their getto-bird out looking for us "punk sport riders", ready to jump on us for a little speed. I feel that these resources can be better serving the public looking for criminals, not fun seekers. If you think about it, the riders are most likely going to hurt themselves running from the police, while down the street some obviously drunk driver is about to kill a family of four in their minivan. I know that they have a job to do, it just seems as though their priorities are askew.

Though I agree that DPS has better things to do than to stake out various riding groups just to see if someone does something wrong, I also believe in "you pay to play." If you're caught speeding or doing tricks or whatever, I feel no sympathy for you if you run or if you give the cop attitude and you get f*cked for it.

i agree with you on that note. I am always nice to the police, and never run, but I feel that they are putting a lot of focus into a very small problem

Angry Bigger fish to fry

Sure..hunt down us sport riders....

How about nailing the assneck the other day in town that pulled to the right side of the road, stopped and then shot out across both lanes to park across the street (nearly T-boning me in the process: had to jam the front brake).

With all due repsect to public officials (I pull over!) officials have bigger fish to fry!!!!!!!! Like assholes and idiots on 4-wheels!!!!

I read all this stuff about locals pushing bikers around. If the bikers are breaking the law fine do your duty. However if the locals, county or whatever they go by are harassing bikers then that sounds like profiling. We at the federal level are not amused at any hint of profiling. If the bikers are not breaking the law leave them alone. This kind of nonsence has received my attention in GA and PA as well. I guess the locals have nothing better to do.

I don't understand how it is profiling when the bikers are not members of a distinct protected class, minority, religious affiliation, ethnic group or female. I believe it is targeted enforcement but the Operational Plan is available to anyone on a Freedom of Information Request if anyone wants to read it. I had the same discussion with our Sheriff's Office when they let the illegal pipes on the H/D's slide all nite while enforcing the eye protection (face shields up) on the sportbikers. Federal rules are much more clear than are state's.
