Flex Your 4th Amendment Rights

I ran across this website tonight and liked what I saw:

http://www.flexyourrights.org/

Given that bikers are often in the cross hairs of law enforcement these days, and those "public servants" might feel more inclined to harass you rather than shake your hand, this website can give you some insight on your 4th Amendment Rights and keep you out of trouble.

And while you're there, check out the videos on bad cops. Simply astounding, given it was a 20 year old who had the cajones to take on the local law enforcement in his town.

Check it out and remove any doubts about your rights when you are confronted with law enforcement. Whether it be a traffic stop on the highway, an illegal checkpoint, or an approach while you are stopped, there's some great advice here.

It surely can't hurt to be prepared for those times when you can't resist cruising that boulevard where bikers are banned, or wearing your favorite DOT baseball cap in a helmet state.

I had to wonder: Is searching your pipes for baffles illegal without consent?

And when you've got about 45 minutes or so, watch the video. It's well done and I have to say I learned a great deal from it. I'm almost looking forward to an opportunity to try these new skills out.
