BIKER RUNS FOR BIKERS
I just read your opinion on helmets and the "burden on society" issue. Its
ironic that bikers are quick to support many runs to benefit other people in
society but not our own. In Calif. there is a run call the Love Ride which
historically raises hundreds of thousands of dollars if not a couple million
for MDA. While that is good, what has MDA done to help us?? Its time that we
support causes that reciprocate something in return. If bikers could get
together and put rides together FOR bikers, we could buy our freedoms!! We
could be the Fat cats on Cap Hill with the bank roll to buy the right
attitudes in the right places. Perhaps, if this idea of having "Love Rides"
for bikers catches on, we could have state and local divisions which allocate
support to bikers that have had injury accidents to help put food on the
table, pay med bills or ??? How much money poured into Sturgis each year for
the the last decade?? ALOT!! Lets start having events like that in a fresh
locale where we can get back to the basics-- keep all the price inflated
S.O.Bs out. Keep it simple: good locale, good music, good food, good
I have stopped going to all the organized runs, I'm tired of eating chicken
and beans for $20.00, and giving $ to organization who could care less about
bikers unless they have their wallets with them!
Thanks for the opportunity to vent!
