Brotherhood (and Sisterhood)

Brotherhood is not about discrimination, it is about uniting in a commonality. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Motorcycles come in all shapes and sizes, and those who ride are the commonality, not the type of bike they ride.

Regardless of what someone rides, they are a "biker" and belong to the Brotherhood of bikers. Women are part of that analogy, though we are women. In this sense, Brotherhood encompasses all of us who ride.

If we are to be united in order to fight off those who would take our freedom to ride and stomp all over it, we must recognize that no matter what you ride, or what someone else rides, we are all part of this Brotherhood!

Read a post on RC's blog,
Big Bend bikers For Freedom, sent in by a Sportbiker.

If you've done this sort of thing to a Sportbiker, to any biker, you may hang your head in shame right now. This makes you nothing more than a bigot, and worthy of nothing from anyone except pity.

I dislike this type of attitude (does that make me a bigot?). If you're one of "them", be sure to keep your mouth shut around me, or expect a new orifice to appear somewhere on your body.

Ride free, ride hard, ride whatever you like, just ride.
