You may have never known. Not all members wear their colors 24-7. Like Chicken alluded to earlier (correctly), many have "regular" lives that blend right into everyday society in addition to their memberships.
You may have. You'd be surprised.
But, no matter what . . . you WOULD NOT have been invited back to the clubhouse upon meeting you because you were "jovial". Even HOLLYWOOD doesn't try to sell that story.
However, you WOULD be able to sell Hollywood the story of "facing off" with a biker who is accompanied by other bikers and have enough brains left to "attempt to" brag about it. In fact, that is STRICTLY Hollywood.
This is starting to sound like some "I'm badder than you" contest.
It's no secret that you hold right-wing views near and dear but if you'd just try to give logic a chance at least once in your life...you may not appear so clueless at best....and vindictive at worst.
I doubt a badder-than-you attitude would make friends anywhere and I'm not sure how you came to imagine a biker-face-off happened.
If you're talking about the time my ex-buddy walked in while I played the drums at a biker club in the Cass corridor....that's hardly bragging....I was in fear for my life and just lucky I didn't need a fresh change of underwear.
I sense you have an unrealistic and unfounded fear of bikers.
What you fail to understand is they put their pants on one leg at a time just like everybody else.
I've already proved my story to be true when I described the layout of the interior....but then facts mean little to you...especially when it runs counter to your preconceived notions....the big bad bikers.
Certainly they can be dangerous....but the same can be said for anybody.
Club members are like family....much like Moose club members...or most any other organization one can think of.
It's a shame an incident of the past can color the opinions of the present.
Much like everybody is now well acquainted with the term "going postal"....associated with the USPS just because of a few bad incidents.
Or a few bad seeds in the OWS protests....it's hardly representative of the groups as a whole.
But I doubt anything I've said will have any impact on you....the collective ignorance of the right is well documented and an exception to the rule....as pertains to my current "don't judge the group by the actions of a few incidents that occurred way back in history" diatribe.
