    Ever notice people expend a lot of energy arguing about something they don't believe?

    Once again you have shown that you have inferior reading comprehension skills.

    I never said that believers should be locked up. Belief, in itself, just shows that you are silly, and perhaps a little crazy -definitely reason-impaired. No reason to lock up someone who might be a little crazy/stupid/naive but hasn't hurt anyone yet. But someone who HAS hurt someone, and THEN shows signs of continued/advanced craziness (believing in invisible friends + Past Homicidal Behavior) should never be let out.

    Angst? I'm laughing my ass off. It's funny. If you see angst then you are merely projecting. I piss you off. I piss off a lot of stupid people. The FIRST thing they run to is the "angst/hate/anger" card.

    Projection...

    No, I'm not fond of open bolt weapons especially ones with limited range. Let me know when you get one and and go after the HA so I can get a ticket and popcorn.:deal

    Get one? Hell I've built them, along with FAL and AK kits. Not that hard. Fun kits to build too. It's too bad that we can't have FA weapons anymore, but the semi-auto kit builds are lots of fun, cheap, and legal.

    Look in the mirror and say that. It is just as good as hearing the exact same thing from my own lips. The feeling is mutual. But I'm laughing about it and you are crying. See the difference?

    must be different up here, I ride with a lot of Harley guys on my plated 450x. no one seems to care what you're riding, just that you are riding. I've never had to worry about passing a pack, I'm usually with them....:D

    This thread (with a few notable exceptions) has degenerated to the point of nonsense.
    So, of course, now is when I jump in:smile6
    I've run into HA out on the road and right here in River City, and there seems to be no middle ground: Either they behave reasonably well, and act like normal people (using the term normal loosely -this is an Adventure Rider motorcycle forum, after all), or they act like :kats and seem bent on attracting as much negative attention as possible. Their website has their attitude written right across the bottom of the banner page for everyone to see, and I think that explains their actions better than I could. You won't get very far reasoning with or shouting at the worse of them, if only because they've suffered permanent hearing loss from those freaking loud machines they favor.
    I avoid :kats as much as possible, no matter what they ride or drive, and a friendly wave will often tell you what you're dealing with right away. If you can get around a line of HA without risking your neck (or being too much of an :katyourself), then find a good spot and go around 'em. If not, be patient. Eventually, you'll find a way around 'em. I don't run into them often, because they're not often on dirt roads. Any adventure rider worthy of the name surely frequents places a HA fears to tread?
    Some of the comments on this thread have contained such :kat-inine ideas, that they don't bear reading, much less repeating.:becca I read this forum to read about adventure on cycleback, not invective in cyberspace. Oops. My big word alarm is starting to buzz, so I may be losing some of you...
    I went to the HA website and read some of the news articles that mentioned them, and read how Canada considers some 'outlaw' motorcycle gangs to be enough of a public danger that the police track gang members and often deport gang members if they are foreign nationals, and jail them if they are Canadian citizens.
    My final thought on 'outlaw' gangs, HA, and their ilk: if they're such rugged individualists thumbing their nose at society, then why do they wear UNIFORMS?
    HA, potholes, flat tires, bugstorms, warm beer. Avoid 'em if you can, deal with 'em when you have to. They're part of the adventure.

    Nice first post Sortadirty. :thumb

    People usually fear what they don't know or understand and are often to close minded to see that their actions on or off the road aren't that far from what they are up in arms about. This is just my observation spread over a few (ok many) decades.

    I've been following this thread for a few days now, and I wonder if the original poster or any of you who are really interested have bothered to PM one of our more illustrious members, the strikingviking. As a former Hell's Angel his is the only opinion on these boards that might actually mean something.

    My 2ยข... Leave 'em alone. Here in Texas I've seen a few Bandidos on the road wearing their colors. I've only seen them riding alone, never in a group. Each was on an obnoxiously loud Harley. I haven't bothered them, and they haven't bothered me. As I understand it, there are no Hell's Angels here as Texas is acknowledged Bandido territory.
