Harley Davidson Riders of Atlanta…Racism Is Alive & Thriving

Posted in Black Bikers, Black Motorcycle Riders, Black Motorcycle Clubs, African American Riders, Choppers, Los Angeles Bikers, Atlanta Motorcycle Clubs with tags , , , on July 24, 2011 by goldie1779

There’s no doubt, racism is alive and thriving in America. I’m a history junky. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a person, place or thing. If I find it interesting; I’ll research it to study myself approved. Because knowledge is power and I want to share this with those who take the time to visit this website.

 

 

So, what’s all the fuss about racism? Well as I’m confronted with it, I will give a depiction of the source so light might come from its exposure. I currently live in Georgia that’s why I found it necessary to share my personal experience on this issue; matter of fact as resent as today I had someone spew some cowardly ignorant racist comment to a post of mine on a Facebook Page called Harley Davidson Riders of Atlanta.

 

 

During slavery Georgia was the number one state out of the nine southern states who didn’t want slavery dismantled. Thomas Jefferson introduced a bill designed to end slavery, not all of the southern Founders were opposed to slavery. According to the testimony of Virginians James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and John Rutledge, it was the Founders from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia who most strongly favored slavery.

 

 

Yet, despite the support for slavery in those States, the clear majority of the Founders opposed this evil. For instance, when some of the southern pro-slavery advocates invoked the Bible in support of slavery, Elias Boudinot, President of the Continental Congress, responded:

 

 

“Even the sacred Scriptures had been quoted to justify this iniquitous traffic. It is true that the Egyptians held the Israelites in bondage for four hundred years . . . but . . . gentlemen you cannot forget the consequences that followed: they were delivered by a strong hand and stretched-out arm and it ought to be remembered that the Almighty Power that accomplished their deliverance is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

 

 

So, what’s all the fuss about racism?

 

 

 

 

Ok, I joined this Facebook Page called Harley Davidson Riders of Atlanta. I posted a link that had my website information to promote education on Black Motorcycle Clubs and so much more. So Keith Robinson of Dallas, GA decided to respond to the link in a rather racist way. Am I shocked? No…however it fascinates me that the administrator of the Facebook Page hasn’t blocked him yet.

 

 

I took time to go through all 177 member profiles in the group and discovered just by the pictures; I’m the only Black Harley Rider. Is that strange? Yes, because there are a lot of Black Harley Riders in Atlanta, GA. I’d like some feedback. Speak your mind, please.

 

 

  1. What would you do if you posted this link and read this response to your post?
  2. How would you respond or react to this coward?
  3. Would you unsubscribe to this FacebookPage?

Rush Limbaugh has ridden that pony with impunity. Such tastelessness is what is expected from someone who joked that he’d like to own an NFL franchise because he fancied owning some black men. Keith Robinson I bet this is your favorite radio personality.

 

 

The Right (racist) doesn’t like the fact that there’s a black man in the White House who isn’t serving coffee, and the Left (racist) doesn’t like the fact that there’s a black man in the White House who’s smarter than they are and who doesn’t do what they order them to do.

 

 

I need your help again with this statement from racist. Now repeat after me, “Some of my best friends are “blacks.” (As Donald Trump said). When racist are confronted about their actions that one of the things you can expect them to say; as if that’s suppose to let them off the hook.

 

 

Since I’m living in the Peach State I’d like to know who’s under that sheet. I don’t have a problem with removing myself from those who think, act and feel this way about any people of color. I captured the comments to my post and you can read them below. I will reiterate, “There’s no doubt, racism is alive and thriving in America”.

PROPOSED LEGISLATION TO LET MICHIGAN RIDERS BUY PERMITS TO RIDE HELMETLESS

Posted in Black Bikers, Black Motorcycle Riders, Black Motorcycle Clubs, African American Riders, Choppers, Los Angeles Bikers, Atlanta Motorcycle Clubs with tags , , , on March 15, 2010 by goldie1779

We’re waiting to see if this will get passed this year in Michigan.
Motorcyclists in Michigan would be able to buy a permit to ride without a helmet if a newly-introduced bill becomes law.
  

It would apply to riders who are 21 years or older, have been licensed to operate a motorcycle for at least two years or completed a safety class, and have at least $20,000 in health insurance. The $100-a-year permit would make helmets optional. Any passenger over 21 years riding with a permit holder wouldn’t need a helmet.
  

State Representative Richard LeBlanc (D-Westland) said wearing a helmet should be a personal choice. LeBlanc told Capitol News Service of the Macomb Daily newspaper that he’s been involved with the issue since the 1970s when he started riding a motorcycle, adding that he introduced the bill because he believes that wearing a helmet should be a personal choice.
  

The bill is pending in the House Committee on Regulatory Reform, though ABATE of Michigan reportedly does not support the legislation and is dedicated to working with their new governor to repeal the existing helmet law with no fees, additional insurance or stickers.
  

Michigan riders, spearheaded by ABATE and the Confederation of Clubs of Michigan, succeeded in passing helmet repeal legislation twice since 2006 only to have both bills vetoed by outgoing Gov. Jennifer Granholm.

2010 Chicago International Motorcycle Show Feature Women Riders

Posted in Black Bikers, Black Motorcycle Riders, Black Motorcycle Clubs, African American Riders, Choppers, Los Angeles Bikers, Atlanta Motorcycle Clubs on February 23, 2010 by goldie1779

Gin Shear of the Women’s Motorcyclist Foundation behind the 2010 Yamaha XT250.
This year’s Chicago International Motorcycle Show featured an all-new Women’s Center where female riders of any experience level were introduced to bikes and gear thanks mainly to the tireless efforts of female riding experts representing the Women’s Motorcyclist Foundation (WMF). Along with discussion, female attendees were encouraged to try on a large variety of woman specific sized and designed gear from manufacturers including Cortech, Icon, Joe Rocket, Shift, Thor and Tourmaster.

Taking an entire wing of the show floor, the Women’s Center had a strong show presence. By the sheer number of women visitors to the area during my 15-minute discussion with one of the principal organizers, “Women in Motorcycling” has a huge future ahead of it.

Someone you should know

On the off-chance you meet someone with an inner drive worn on their sleeve, your interest is usually awakened. When you find out this same person uses that drive to promote and raise funds for charitable causes while riding a motorcycle, you had better take notice…

Meet Gin Shear from Rochester, NY who just so happens to ride a 2009 BMW F 800 GS, a CleanMPG favorite.

“We want to get people to consider motorcycling as a family activity,” said Gin, Executive Director of the Women’s Motorcyclist Foundation. “If we can move woman to ride, we’ll get more people to ride as well.”

Gin manages the WMF as a 501(c)3 charitable, networking and educational organization. In existence since 1984, the WMF began by hosting multi-day gatherings to share and enhance the riding, mechanical and touring skills of women motorcyclists.

In 1993, the WMF began efforts to eradicate breast cancer. Through a number of long distance adventure rides including the Women’s Arctic Tour – Ride for Research, four national PONY EXPRESS TOURS, ON TRACK FOR A CURE plus a program completed last summer billed as “Adventure for the Cures”. To date, the WMF has raised over $2.2 million dollars to aid in the fight against breast cancer.

Later on in the evening, Gin gave a presentation for the show going public entitled Dual-Sport Riding where she highlighted a fund raising ride completed by 12 women, most of whom had never ridden off-road in their lives.

The Dirty Dozen

Gin on stage presenting – Dual Sport Riding and the “Adventure for the Cures”.

Why go Dual Sport? For charity and fun!

Twelve road riding women motorcyclists were asked to become members of a group now known as the “Dirty Dozen”, whose purpose was not just to ride to some of America’s most remote locations but to raise funds for breast and ovarian cancer research. In order to participate, each of the 12 woman had to raise a minimum of $2000 to be divided equally between the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation and the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. 100% of the funds raised went to the respective research foundations while the trip expenses were paid by the main sponsor, Progressive Insurance.

Additionally these 12 riders had to become competent dual-sport riders given 80% of the expedition was off-road on trails that could best be described as un-rideable by the average street rider. Coach2Ride was tasked to teach the former road only female riders to successfully navigate the roads (better described as fire trails and walking paths) throughout the Colorado Rockies.

Their trek began last summer in Keystone, CO and toured much of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains including Lake George, then Almont, into the Gunnison and White River National Forests, and then returning to Keystone. The entire ride took place in the area often referred to as the “Fourteeners”, a group of Colorado Mountains whose peaks exceed 14,000 feet above sea level.

“During the ride, we became a family,” Gin added while also describing how the group experienced snow at higher elevations in mid-summer! From the slides shown, it appears as if they had a great deal of fun while riding, arguably the best way to experience America off-road, dual-sport motorcycles.

The bikes and just one of the beautiful and remote riding destinations.

Breast and Ovarian cancer takes the lives of over 55,000 women in the US annually. The “Dirty Dozen” did their part to help eliminate these terrible diseases by raising $42,000 on this ride for the cure. How about you?
