Now I am a bit ashamed over this scooter issue. According to
the news articles if our elderly hell's angels gang do not get
their "born to be wild choppers" out of the hall and
into their small living areas, they are going to see who wears
the big trousers. To comply they must rearrange their apartments,
but they are not all physically up to the task. If complying
is the objective, one phone call to any number of coaches would
get all the young muscle they need. That's what community will
But, isn't it more than that? I hope they are cantankerous enough
in this situation to say fine, I and my old timer gang will trade
our little Rascals in for Harleys to comply with the two inch
mandate, and you can clean up the oil that drips from our machines
that define independence. Get those motors running, and head
out on that highway, just maybe they are looking for adventure?
I say get-up, stand-up, and wave without all your fingers, you
earned it. It just don't seem right to push a little ole lady
from Pasadena around, when she can do for herself. Why should
teenagers get all the defiant fun? Let's get it on.
