    Don’t do anything to attract the police — it hurts the profit margin.

    Aaah, criminality is what we need to have a law-abiding society.

    Ha! You all thought he meant something illegal. I read it to mean that they are showing off a lot of Harley paraphenalia.

    Uh… D.R. ….
    the expression “moving a lot of product” means “selling a lot of merchandise.”

    Bikers buy branded paraphernalia to wear… but most have no stake in Harley Davidson or its licensees….
    there’s no percentage in being law-abiding just to show off your gear.

    Nope…. but when you’re on your way to make a sale, with a jail term in your pocket,
    or your saddlebags reeking of ….um… herbs…
    you really don’t want to get pulled over for an illegal left turn.

    I imagine.
    Of course.

    Skid reminds me of the Reverend I knew, one of a number of bikers I’ve ridden with. I’m unusual that I’m a ‘normal’ and I don’t have any tats.

    “Cyclist” is used to describe those who pedal their ride.
    The correct term for Skid and his ilk is “biker”.

    …and Mike isn’t one, so he doesn’t use the right terminology.
    When I used to pedal my 2-wheeler to work, people who hadn’t used a bicycle in a decade or more used to call me a biker. I didn’t bother correcting them.

    (sigh) one of the few stereotypes even a supposedly liberal cartoonist can trade in…

    However, Garry displays his ignorance here: time and time again, when “biker” gangs are caught moving “product” (drugs, guns, prostitutes, etc.), they’re doing it in rented vans. Even an Electra-Glide Ultra Limited just doesn’t have the cargo space needed to sustain a proper illicit distribution business…

    There has been a lot of discussion in the papers here about whether Bicyclist should be required to have an operator’s license because they are SOOO bad at observing the traffic laws.

    But the bicyclists are just as reckless: no signals, riding on wrong side of road, running red lights, etc. Cyclists are cyclists. Mike uses the correct word:
    World English Dictionary
    cyclist or ( US ) cycler (ˈsaɪklɪst)
    — n a person who rides or travels by bicycle, motorcycle, etc"

    Sadly, many bicyclists think they should still ride facing traffic, like when they were pedestrians.

    Bill maher noted recently that undocumented workers are perfect in traffic. This would make sense.
