Excerpt: “When a mom pulled her young daughter away from this friendly biker, his feelings were deeply hurt. So he decided to take to Facebook and clarify a few things about “dirty” bikers.”

If you dress like a thug, talk like a thug, ride like a thug, act like a thug…the concerned “Mom” has every right to dissuade her child from interacting with the “biker dude.” I have policed the “Biker Cult[ure]” for years, cited and arrested probably more than most officers in the United States – I know the personality-type, the “attitude,” the narcissistic/hedonistic mentality… First, let’s make the differentiation between a “biker” and a “motorcyclist.”
I’ve owned, operated, some 31 motorcycles since age 12 and have ridden professionally for years…I know bikers and I know motorcyclists – there is a stark difference between the two.
What are the attributes of a “Motorcyclist?”
1) Motorcyclists respect the general public and the environment. Motorcyclists don’t modify their motorcycles to assault the general public with illegal noise emissions or vomit excessive exhaust particulates into our atmosphere.
2) Motorcyclists ride defensively, dress appropriately and don’t naively rely on irrelevant extraneous factors for safety e.g. exhaust NOISE.
3) Motorcyclists respect the sport of motorcycling and ride and act in a manner that garners respect from the motoring public and ensures that the sport will continue unabated by harsh regulations for years to come.
The “Biker Cult[ure]” on the other hand…
1) Is comprised of immature, arrogant, irresponsible, narcissistic, hedonistic, individuals who use their motorcycle as an extension of their morally relativistic, selfish personality-type/ideology to bully the general public.
2) Sixty-to-eighty-percent of the “Biker Cult[ure]” i.e. the Loud Biker Cult[ure], removes their legal, US EPA approved, quiet, clean, factory-installed muffler and replaces it with a NOT FOR ROAD USE, Competition Only, Closed Course racing exhaust for hedonistic reasons – to make illegal NOISE as they endeavor to gratify their obsessive-compulsive need for attention and obedience to the Group Dynamic.
3) The motorcycles operated by the Loud Biker Cult[ure] emit between four-to-eight-times the legal “total” motorcycle noise emissions of 80 dB(A) as mandated/restricted by the US EPA for the safety of the general public exposed to motorcycle noise emissions on a daily basis (dB differentials measured on a logarithmic scale).
4) The Loud Biker Cult[ure], as a result of their immature personality, desire to intimidate the general public and garner/force/bully attention to themselves by dressing like “One-Percenters” yet most are really nothing more than vulgar want-a-bee’s.
5) I ask you, what kind of “man” modifies a motor vehicle to make egregious, intrusive, dangerous NOISE levels in violation of Federal and State law, then proceeds out onto a public roadway and uses that illegal exhaust NOISE to assault our children, our elderly, the handicapped, our families – what kind of a “man” would do such a thing? This is NOT the behavior of a man, a responsible father, a police officer, a patriot, a Christian…this is the behavior of a selfish, entitled, THUG!
Yes, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck….Loud Biker Dude—don’t like the disrespect? Well, you have NO ONE to blame but yourself!!! The family that warned their child to distance herself from you was doing the right thing!
Photo taken by C-CALM at the 2016 Steel Horse Motorcycle Rally in Ft. Smith, AR – advertised as a “Family Friendly Event.” This child, during the “parade of motorcycles,” is attempting to protect her hearing from the incredible, illegal, intrusive, motorcycle noise from illegally equipped motorcycles present in overwhelming numbers – where are her civil liberties and her civil rights?
Whose “rights” should prevail?
