How about an FYI and then you can lock it, I see no reason to remove something that is just info.

Bottom line is this fellas, some people don't want to be around bikers, others love hanging out with bikers. No one's lumping anyone into any group. Just tossin out the info that there is going to be quite a party up nort and iffin you don't want to be around that type of stuff, don't go.

Pretty cool that this conversation has stayed civil, tho.

We live just a couple of miles away from the Black Bear casino and I am not to worried about any of it. They have rented a bar/ballroom for the weekend that is 2 blocks from the casino at a cost of $200,000 and will tend the bar themselves. Word is that they bought $100,000 worth of liquor from one of the local liquor stores. I have no way of knowing whether either story is true but I have heard it enough to believe there is some truth. The county will have a meeting this friday for the media and concerned citizens at the transportation building and they will have another after they leave. I am thinking that I want to take some pictures of all the bikes motoring around if they are in a pack.

I just watched the piece on Kare 11 and found it strange that they interview the sheriff from Pine county when the casino and ballroom are located in Carlton county. The sheriffs department is located maybe 3 miles from the casino and the transportation building is maybe 4 blocks away(where they gas up,fix and store there cars and trucks). The only reason I ask this is because our sheriff is a female and maybe they did not want to let the boys know this or was she just to busy at the time. Who knows but I did find it a little strange.

jimalm ... sad to say you hit the nail right on the head with the last two sentences of your post.

I guarantee there will be more info coming. But for those interested you will probably have to search beneath the headlines and do some online research.

Also.. please use caution when taking pictures. That is not always a welcomed activity. But you are right.. there should be a lot of cool bikes in the area.

Pine Co. under sheriff has had his undies in a bundle over this meet and greet for two months now.

Worry warts must keep him from sleeping at night.

It has not been a big deal except for all the extra traffic from all the agency's that are patrolling the area. There are cops from as far away as St. Cloud along with the border patrol and the Feds and a ton of Highway patrols and they also brought along there drunk mobile. There are always a cop or 2 watching the entrance to the Lost Isle along with a another 5 to 10 parked along Hwy 210. The H.A. have there guards to make no one comes in the lot of Lost Isle. The H.A. also put semi trailers and those large storage bins along 210 so you have a hard time seeing what goes on in the parking lot where they have a large tent set up. I was told this morning that the county jail was emptied to make room and so far no one has been jailed. In the evening for the past 2 nights there has also been a helicopter flying around from 6:00 to dark. For the most part things have been pretty tame and more then likely will stay that way as long as the Outlaws stay in WS and I guess the superior police have been keeping a eye on them. It dose make for cheap entertainment but I would hate to see what the total bill will be for this little party.

Taking pictures is not advisable. But I would recomend that if you are up that way when they pull out to Sturgis to go watch ( and cheer)remember they spent alot of money. If you have not seen a few hundred bikes all running to gether it is a sight, When I ride in a group I alway leave some distance between my self and the next bike/ What you will see is them riding very very tight side to side and front to back. Now I do not want to start some thing about how un safe that is. These guys ride to gether many many miles like this with no problems kind of like a nascar race only slower and on 2 wheels I have seen and been apart of it many times.

I would like to take the time to thank all the police officers, deputies, troopers, BCA agents, conservation officers, and feds who made this a safe event for the public. What some seem to forget is that the HA's are a criminal enterprise much like the Bloods, Crips, Sureños, or mafia.

THANK YOU officers for making this an uneventful gathering.

There is A LOT of information that has not been released to the public yet.

But overall Berens Lake ON is right..

THANKS TO ALL who made this event the opposite of what the HA's wanted and stated.. it would be. MN made a solid statement in regards to the preparation and handling of these guys. I would expect they will take the party elsewhere next time.

A lot of ta-do about nothing is what I am thinking. The lions share of these guys are just like you and me. If you treat them with a lil respect they will do the same for you. Most of the 1%'rs do not go looking for trouble with the general public.

IMHO Leaving too much space between riders in a formation like that is more dangerous. Idiots in cages (cars) will pull into your formation and then you have more trouble than if you keep the lines tight.

Take care and N Joy the Ride././Jimbo

They don't just give those patches away, you have to "earn them".....

And I am not talking about selling cookies or popcorn from door to door.

Crips ? Bloods ? Surenos ?

Don't they have the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the ACLU in their corner ?

Law Enforcement to this degree (some call it harassment) would have been labeled as racism, racial profiling, or what have you, and the lawsuits would fly until the city, county, state capitulates rather than be seen as racists.

I watched the HA special on Gangland on The History Channel this weekend. It's pretty hard-core.

They interviewed a former under-cover agent who had infiltrated the HA for something like 8 years. He said that they were importing something like 40 metric tons (40,000,000 kilos) of cocaine at a time!

In the interview with the owner of the Lost Isle (the HAs HQ) he mentioned that not a single cup or cigarette butt was found on the property only tire tracks ,,,with the weather we had last week I dont expect they will be back for a while

Law Enforcement did a fine job of showing a strong presence and it was pretty uneventfull here at the Bear

On Saturday and early Sunday, officers from all agencies made 210 traffic stops in Carlton and southern St. Louis County. Those stops resulted in 79 citations, only two of which involved Hells Angels members, Carlton County Sheriff Kelly Lake said.

Yawn tired

    • Day 3 Afternoon   We went for a short walk into the area I thought I heard the birds gobble in the distance when I shot my bird.  We couldn't find any birds and were nearly done with our walk when I glassed across a cow pasture and saw birds up in some trees!   I quickly checked the map and found that they were dangerously close to public land.   We made a dash for the car.   The walk in to this spot was pretty short and very close to houses and the farm that had the cows.   We ended up close to the fence and I felt the turkeys we saw should be just below us.   Some whitetail deer spooked and then turkeys started filing past along the fence.  I counted four or five hens, but no gobbler.  We stayed a bit and crow called thinking maybe a flock got busted up.  In the end we just backed out without spooking the hens off. 
    • North Metro Bass Academy Custom Tackle is having a 15% off sale this week 4/23-4/30 on all custom jigs orders.  We are also running 10% off all of our Tungsten Weights .... Flipping, Worm, and Drop Shot.  This will be our last sale before the season opens - so get in on it this week.  Tight Lines!  All of our products are on our web page North Metro Bass Academy   [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL]
    • I agree.   I have said in the past, i learn to be a better hunter when they aren't easy.  Turkeys seem to become an obsession if you allow yourself to let them get in your blood! Love the chase.
    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!
