Fantastic eye opener! Hopefully helping children trust people again.

Yes... much more effective than a group of Beemer riders standing in her driveway all wearing day-glow green Stiches! Not that it wouldn't still be scary, just in a different way!

Thumbs down

A group of Sport bike Riders Known as the Vodoo Misfits in KC asked them to join in on some projects building playgrounds for underprivileged kids in Kansas City and they refused because of the style of bikes they rode! I think the message would be inclusion of any who wanted to help kids. Or to join in no matter who asked if it was to help poor kids.

I doubt if it was strictly because of the sportbikes...
Voodoo Misfits may be more like it and the image the name implies.

Besides, instead of latching onto the HD group, why wouldn't the Misfits do something on their own?

The HD group has every right to stick with what obviously works and undoubtedly has polished their image. I wouldn't let another group grab onto my coat-tail either.

Besides as I mentioned earlier, how many predators are going to be scared away by a group of power rangers?

Swing and miss, the misfits ,with there teddy bear logo asked the pirate douches to come and support the kids and they refused. Being the standup guys they are and all. If had to choose a defender I would go with the uniformed clean cut power rangers over the drunken slob pirates.

Only you can take a thread about people doing something good for those who have no one to protect them and turn it into a Harley bashing thread.

Congratulations!

Great Story Pretbek. Thanks for the reminder.
Where I'm from, the local MCs are very active in charity work. Muscular Distrophy Association is their chosen charity. They also show up at nearly every soldier, policeman and fireman memorial, will show up at a funeral for a fallen friend, or soldier, and even if somebody asked to have a motorcycle escort at a funeral, they are there.
There is a big investment in time dedicated to it. You dont just show up at a starting point and hop on the bikes. It takes planning and scheduling, etc if you are going to do these things respectfully. And, like the article said, it's volunteered time. Do they have time to help other groups do their charity work? No. They can do their own stuff...on their own volunteer's time. I'm sure that the Cancer Society could give a fuck what the Shriners are doing.
Not to mention that on all these outings, some twatwaffle squid is gonna complain that the memorial procession is taking up the whole road.

Thank You, I will be here all week!
Nothing wrong with Harleys! Or the group helping Kids, just saying the Local Chapter is kinda dicks about the Harley thing, or it may have been just the guy they talked to was a Douchebag Pirate wannabe.
I will take my prize in cash and donate it to St Judes, Were I know it will really help kids!

Just think you guys got you signals mixed, there was bashing earlier on with the whole "Power Ranger" comment and the Hi-viz suits. But it's pretty funny so far. Carry on.

I doubt it was because of bike style. The patches these guys wear are red and white...might have more to do with it.

That said, I applaud these bikers. More power to 'em!

Same goes to those building playgrounds!
