Thanks to the Big A

8 posts in this topic

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.

I work at Black Bear ,,,and this fear mongering is being spread by the media just like it is here ,,,,for the HA's this is a family event ,,,their familys will be here too,,,I have personally met 7 HA's back in the 90s and not all of them are what you see on TV (Sons of Anarchy),,, on the nicer days I will ride my bike to work and dont plan to change that because they are in town ,,, Ill show them the same respect I show all bikers and expect the same in return,,,,I do look forward to seeing some nice custom bikes that week tho

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...

    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!
