Little known fact, and one in which Minnisota Motorcycle Monthly recently uncovered with photographic evedence, was that scooterist where as much if not more responsible for the mahem on that infamous day. Although knowing full well that the scooter riders where the ones primarily reponsible for the vandelism and lawlessness, the movie producers choose to ingnore that fact and use motorcycles in the subsequent 1954 film The Wild One that was inspired by the event.

I had heard this same information years ago, but you know how these Harley riders always want to look cool. The word got around that the "Big Bad Bikers" caused a commotion, and the newby Harley guys figured they would take the rap for this, to soildify their reputation!
