As for the acronym I'm not sure. But that sentence is says that a huge group of guys is leaving hawks prairie at ten.
Do you think they should be able to tell you not to run race slicks on the street or that you have to wear eye protection?

And where in Hawks Prairie? The sports bar, the casino, the golf club, the veterinary hospital, etc?

It should be from the parking lot of the restaurant and sports bar, but if you cannot find several hundred motorcycle in a parking lot maybe you need to be on the bus. I've never done the ride in, as I am always on the campus long before many of those riders are even out of bed, but if you want to be involved in an impressive parade it's a good one. If not, and you are riding down, traditionally the north diagonal on the campus is reserved for motorcycle parking.

Here is what I put out on the Washington Road Riders Association page. It includes some decent talking points for when you are actually sitting down with your legislator and discussing lane sharing/splitting. Also, take note of my concerns about the operation of the WMSP.

BTW: COC stands for Confederation Of Clubs.

He's part of the libertarians mc. Not a 1% club. But they are super literal about the constitution. Specifically the second amendment and the right to form a militia. So I guess if your anti gun then yeah you would be scared to attend an event with such scary people.

And yes because one could argue those two things affect the safety of others on the road. The tires won't give appropriate grip. And lack of eye wear means you could be blinded. Both of which create unsafe conditions for others on the road.
But if your not wearing a helmet. But you are wearing appropriate eyewear. The only person that affects is you.
They want you to survive your accident so a you can keep paying taxes or b become dependent on the system.
If your dead they get nothing.

Nope, I don't. If you choose to do something stupid then you are 100% liable for everything resulting from it. It used to be called personal responsibility and accountability but now it's often called discrimination or social injustice.

First, if the government has nuclear weapons, a militia is moot. Second, to most people a guy wearing a mask and pointing a gun is likely a terrorist.

I probably could eventually, but it didn't specify the location and my map shows several places with the name Hawks Prairie several miles apart.

How about if a rock kicks up and hits you in the head, like the one that shattered my windshield?

Actually, I think they want you to survive with only minor injuries, not a severe head injury making you a vegetable so you are dependent on the system?

This is what was on the bandanna covering his face. Maybe your not familiar with it's origins.

If you took a couple seconds to look up what his mc is about maybe it would make more sense.
I understand and accept your point of view tho.
