I can see Babs welding a set of apes on an old box fan, turning it on and making motor sounds into the fan trying to cure wintertime cabin fever.

Well, 'whiners' vote.

Like it or not we are going to live and work along side people with differing attitudes. In fact we judge people in this same manner!

This past weekend an impromtu discussion of America broke out in our road clothes section.

While every word was a true and factual comment, the conversation was laced with words like, socialism, idiots, Kenyans, clueless, communists, liberals, "fall of America" and a racist word I'm not allowed to type.

We care, they care.

I'll bet easy money that when I quietly ride my bikes through my neighborhood using my lawful rights, I tick off a dozen people that might vote and put a leash on you.

This is just a debate. We are not discussing a possible scenario, we're just pointing out a condition of life.

Oh, and you'd be amazed at how many bikers I tick off just admitting I'm a tourist.

What does this have to do with " Old slang I'd like to bring back. " ??

I am with Lee on this one, could care less I just want to ride.

The idea of old slang segued into the need for labels, at all.

I don't mind the drift, but our answer to every problem that comes down the pike can't be "I don't give a shit."

We had to wear helmets in Wisconsin for ten years because we couldn't get the bikers off the dime. I was at the first Capitol Building rally. Only 1/2 or one side of the Capitol Lawn had bikes parked there.

My club toured the entire state for two years trying to get folks to do what they should have done by themselves.

Their attitude? "I don't give a shit, my beer is getting warm."

Do you like your pipes? Do you like your apes? Do you want to wear helmets again? Do you read the newspapers? Do you vote?

Well, if you don't, then I don't give a shit. You won't be able to hear your EPA approved pipes from under that new helmet anyway.

Federal laws already mandate manditory noise levels, and soon, the Feds will also mandate that ALL riders will wear helmets, if they get their way.

The fight is bigger then just your State level, my friend.....
