I just wanted to thank the Big A for a heads up! My plan was to ride north that weekend. Now north west may be a better option.

In 2008 this group was linked to 200 serious felony crimes.

35% of those crimes were committed during this annual ride.

THIRTY FIVE PERCENT ! That is a lot fella's...

Need to confirm that? Contact the ATF

Most use this as a chance to break laws and "payback" other groups.. then dissappear and blend with Sturgis.

Now for Y2K.. we were told to expect that planes would fall from the sky and computers would explode .. right? .. and what happened... nothin

I am certainly hoping this will be the same type of deal. But just like Y2K.. you should prepare and plan for the worst.. we never know what is going to happen. Who is going to show up or what they are going to do. All we know is the potential for trouble is in the making. Thats all.

LoonASea.. I am certainly not saying you shouldnt ride your bike to work or look forward to seing some great looking rides. I honestly hope it is as great as you feel it will be. But there are some who may just as well prefer to avoid a situation like that.. just in case .. and that was why it was posted. Cuz some may not have known.. and they may like being offered the chance to make an informed decision.

Big A

I worked with the ATF last week and their big concern is Mn is HA turf and Wi is Outlaw turf ,,this event is pretty close to Wi so you wont find me riding any where close to the border

And I do agree the "Heads Up" was a good idea ,,,Lots of other places to ride

Thanks LAS

and your right. That is the major concern. Along with the fact that in 2006, about 40 miles outside of Sturgis. Two HA members shot 7 Outlaws in cold blood at a campground that was filled with families and innocent bystanders.

Anyone can internet search this and establish the facts.. its all out there.

The concern is there has been no retaliation as of yet from the Outlaws.. and with this event being so close to the border, it seems as if buttons are being pushed.

The Outlaws will be in Superior WI, and the HA's will be in the Duluth area. Too close for comfort...

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
    • Yea yea all ya auld pharts would  pass out the minute she popped the first button!!
    • Would he get a free hoodie for his efforts?
    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
