The penalties for failure to comply I can't post on a public forum.

And yell "slug bug" while punching the guy next to you.

.

When riding in a group if you are in the lead and stick out one leg or the other, it indicates a pot hole or other obstruction in the road, left or right.

There must be other signals out there, maybe we need a list.

What if you don't have a helmet? Do you lay your doo rag on the ground?

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

I suppose the reason this is not so well known on this forum is because our 'Wings don't break down. But, the "dew rag" question is valid, as those bikes have been known to have the occasional problem.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Last Sunday my lady friend and I did a little 270 mile ride and once when stopping for gas a harley rider pulled in, got off his bike and layed down next to it and fiddling around with something under it. A couple of hrs later when we pulled into a parking lot to get something to eat and there was another Harley parked there with the rider laying on the ground next to it trying to fix something. he was still there when we left after having lunch. Damn sure glad I don't own any Harleys anymore.
