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.

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...

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
