FEAR 2Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

was faithful in the past.  Remember who you once were apart from the work of Christ in your life.  The Lord, in his great love, provided His Son so that you do not have to live your life captive to sin, even the sin of fear and worry.  His overwhelming peace can speak louder to your heart than all your concerns and fears.

I am sure you have looked outside recently and around the world and see all the horrifying events taking place. We live in the most violent and lawless time in history. This world is on the brink of annihilation at any given moment! We are living in dangerous and perilous times.

Here are a few gospel truths about The Lord that help me when I struggle with fear:

It is no wonder there is so much fear in the hearts of people. Yet we are instructed from the Word of The Lord “Fear Not”!

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. (1 John 3:1)

Fear and worry are not just emotions; they are expressions of what we hold dear. They reveal the loyalties of our hearts. If we know Jesus and have affirmed our allegiance to him, worry is a sign that we are trying to have it both ways. We certainly don’t want to renounce our allegiance to Jesus, but we want to protect what we feel is our own. We are not so sure that the Lord can be trusted with some of these things, so we look for help elsewhere. And if there is no obvious alternate source of help, we worry.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Ps. 46:1)

Because The Lord is faithful, we have no need to fear.  But often, circumstances speak so loudly.  They tell us that fear is natural… that it’s a normal response to have.  Fear tells us that circumstances are bigger than The Lord’s power, or even at times that The Lord doesn’t care.  It can be so inescapable.  It creeps in so easy.  So, what do we do at times in our life when fear comes knocking?  Or when we’ve seen it take hold in our lives? We need to take gospel truths and filter our every fear through it.  It is important to look back and remember how The Lord Gordon “Preacher” Bacon PO Box 1107, Leonardtown, MD. 20650 preacherrwm@yahoo.com • 240.577.0605 Facebook; Rushing Wind Motorcycle Ministry

He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ (Phil 1:6) Fear not, nor be afraid; have I not told you from of old and declared it?  And you are my witnesses! Is there a God besides me? There is no Rock; I know not any.”  (Is. 44:8) God is my Father.  He is near in my troubles.  He will complete the work in me.  He is faithful, and I can rest on Him. Look back and remember all the times God has been faithful in your past.  Through every trial you’ve faced, He never left you. He will never stop being faithful.  Fight the urge to think of and project yourself ahead to a godless future. God delights in His children coming humbly to Him.  He promises that every time you are afraid He will give you fresh grace and fresh strength… powerful grace.  Grace that is greater than all our fears! those on death row and lifers with no chance of parole. The Bacon Family moved to Fairmont, WV in 1991 to where Gordon was an interim pastor for The Church of Living Waters Jesus Outreach.

Gordon and his family, his wife Debbie, Son Gordon “Gordy” Jr, Christina and Janine first started out in ministry in New Mexico on the Navajo Reservation in January of 1983. Gordon and his family moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1986 and continued their work with the Navajo from there. During their stay in Arizona The Bacon Family Ministry attended Sweetwater Church of The Valley under Pastor Glenn Foster. Gordon Bacon also was both a student and an instructor at Sweetwater Bible College. While living in Phoenix, AZ the ministry with the Navajo continued along with adding Prison ministry in Florence, AZ at Florence Maximum Security Prison to THUNDER ROADS MAGAZINE MD-DE-DC

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ. (Ephesians 2:4-5)

In 1993 the Lord called Gordon and Debbie Bacon to Southern Maryland. Debbie became the Administrator for The Rock Christian Academy while Gordon continued to minister around the country and into Mexico. Today Gordon “Preacher” Bacon is the Founder of Rushing Wind Ministry and Rushing Wind M/M in Southern Maryland.

n January 8th the 2014 Legislative session began in Annapolis.  This next 90 days will be quite busy for ABATE.  We are in Annapolis every Monday night during session lobbying.  Our first night was this Monday, January 13th.  We will continue until the session ends in April.  We have put together two bills for this session.  The first one is the helmet modification bill.  This bill will be introduced with the same wording as last year’s bill.  We are asking for freedom of choice if you are 21 years of age and carry $10,000 worth of health insurance.  This bill will be introduced by Senator Astle and Senator Edwards in the Senate and by Del. Bromwell on the House side.  We decided to cross file this year.  We will be posting dates and times for hearings as soon as we get them.  The second bill is addressing motorcycle only checkpoints.  We are looking at nipping this in the bud before it becomes an issue in Maryland.  This bill would prevent law enforcement from conducting motorcycle only checkpoints.  ABATE of Maryland is also working administratively on editing the content of the Maryland drivers handbook.  We will be addressing adding important motorcycle awareness content to the handbook.  As always, we work closely with Maryland State Police, MVA and State Highway Administration in making Maryland a motorcycle friendly state.

is for the wellbeing of motorcyclists in Maryland. For only $25 a year, you are making sure that you are represented in Annapolis.  It is a small price to pay for your freedom.  If you watched the news this week, you would see what bikers in California are addressing.  They have gathered together to fight legislation that would make reflective vests mandatory.  It is a sneaky way of making sure their club names are covered up.  They too are fighting mandatory helmets.  Motorcyclists from all over the state converged on the capitol in a show of force and unity.  This is freedom fighting at its best.  This is what ABATE of Maryland and motorcycle rights organizations all over the country do.  We stand as one strong unit to protect our rights and preserve our freedom to ride.  If you come to Timonium, stop by our booths and ask us questions.  See what we do for you and what we have done for you.  Hope to see you there. Michelle Holcomb Executive Director ABATE of Maryland, Inc. For more information – www.abateofmd.org

Timonium bike show is coming up in February.  ABATE of Maryland will have two booths this year to introduce ABATE to all motorcyclists who are not aware of what we are about.  It is important that every motorcyclist in the state is aware that we are there for them.  We are the only motorcycle rights organization in Maryland.  We are your watchdog.  ABATE always has their eyes open for any legislation that would negatively affect motorcyclists.  We address road hazards and highway structures that affect us in any way.  Everything we do THUNDER ROADS MAGAZINE MD-DE-DC

irish spring festival ireland, wv

B

y the time we get to this part of the year most of us are sick of winter, cold, snow, ice and everything that comes together and makes us dream of warmer temperatures and long rides on our bikes. I’ve got good news for all of you. I found a hidden gem in the hills of West Virginia that will help you welcome in spring and get you out on the road and in the wind. This year will be the 33rd annual Irish Spring Festival in Ireland, West Virginia. Ireland is located in southern Lewis County. It was settled by an Irishman named Andrew Wilson. It was found that Mr. Wilson (Old Ireland) lived to see 114 spring times. The

average life-span at the time was 38. After learning of this and living in a place called Ireland the community wanted to do something to celebrate. What better time than St. Patrick’s Day and the first day of spring. What is so unique about this Festival? Unless you go to the country of Ireland I doubt you can see some road bowling. Teams come from all over to compete in the annual road bowling games. You can climb the hill to touch the Blarney rock and leave a penny for the leprechauns and make a wish. There is a scavenger hunt, lucky charm pitch (horseshoes), corn hole, open microphone, pet show, harp concert and workshop, and much more. This is a great time for the whole family to get out and enjoy some outdoor time after a long winter. I have been assured that the community would welcome all and your bikes. They have a parade and a flag rising. This might be a good way of introducing your group to the community. This year it looks like the events will begin on the 9th of March and end when they welcome spring into the community on the 20th at 12:57p.m. The dates and times can change. You can find more info at www.angelfire.com/ wv/irishspringfestival. You can also call the Lewis County Convention and Visitors Bureau, inc. 304-269-7328, or 304-452-8962.

During class, a teacher trying to teach good manners, asks the students: “Students, If you were on a date, having supper with a nice young lady, how would you tell her that you have to go to the bathroom? Michael?” Michael: “Just a minute, I have to go pee.” Teacher: “That would be rude and impolite!!! Teacher: “What about you Peter? How would you say it?” Peter: “I am sorry, but I really need to go to the bathroom, I’ll be right back.”... Teacher: “That’s better, but it’s still not very nice to say the word bathroom at the dinner table. And you Little Johnny, are you able to use your intelligence for once and show us your good manners?” Johnny: “I would say: ‘Darling, may I please be excused for a moment? I have to shake hands with a very dear friend of mine, who I hope you’ll get to meet after our delicious & expensive supper. “ -----------------------------------------------------------------------Condoms don’t guarantee safe sex anymore.

Kayla– Hi there. I’m Kayla and I came here from another shelter. I’m an active, happy one year old Boxer/ Terrier mix who likes going for long walks and playing with stuffed animals, tennis balls, Kongs, and nyla bones. Sometimes I get excited while walking, especially if I see another dog I’d like to meet. In my excitement to play I may also jump a bit and try to grab your hands so you’ll come and play with me. In my world, it’s always play time! If you have other animals, I can be cat tested or have a dog intro to make sure everyone gets along. If you are interested in me please come to BHS soon. Did you see my picture?? How can you resist my beautiful eyes??

discovered I do well with Science Diet DD. My skin looks so much better now, but I will always need to be fed this hypo-allergenic food to keep my allergies under control. For me to live happily and safely within your family, I have a few requirements-- first, an all adult household (no kids under age 18) that is on the quiet side with not a lot of busy in and out traffic. I’d also like to be the king of the castle and not share you with any other pets. When it comes to being outside, please don’t ever leave me unsupervised or put me in a yard with an electric fence, and please keep me on a leash with you anytime we go away from home. I’d hate to be separated from you. If you can do all that, then to make sure we are all adjusting well, BHS will visit us a minimum of 2 times at the home and have us come in to visit them at the shelter 2 times. The vet would also like to have you keep in touch for consults on my health. Isn’t it great how much they want to make our life together work out? I am so longing for an understanding loving, forever home. Please fill out an application 1st if you are interested.

Luka- Well hello there! My name is Luka and I am a three year old, energetic plot hound mix looking for a forever home to call my own! I really enjoy swimming in my baby pool during the Baltimore Humane Society summer and playing 1601 Nicodemus Road with my favorite Jolly Reisterstown, MD 21136 Ball. I have met some dogs here in play groups and know some T: 410-833-8848 | F: 410-833-4481 basic commands that I can show you! Maybe we can go on a www.bmorehumane.org hike together and share some peanut butter treats? I would love a home with a fenced in yard (no electric fencing)so I can run Baltimore Humane Society: A no-kill shelter protecting, saving, and caring for animals since 1927! around and entertain you while you watch! I’m a special guy looking for a special home of my own.

Mariah - Hi there! My name is Mariah. I am looking for my forever home. One with an active lifestyle would be amazing. I am full of energy and would be a good running partner! Even though I’m three years old, I have the energy of a puppy! I love playing with squeaky toys and taking long walks. Playing with kids is also fun. I lived with children ages 10 to 17 in my previous home so if you have children please bring them with you to meet me. See you soon! Bishop - Hello, everyone! My name is Bishop and I am a sweet guy who was brought to BHS because my guardian was in poor health and could no longer care for me. I am a happy-go-lucky, energetic boy in need of a loving forever home. When I first arrived at BHS, all of my skin was horribly red and inflamed, and I looked miserable, but the staff tried various foods and THUNDER ROADS MAGAZINE MD-DE-DC

SPECIAL “VALENTINE” SUPPER: POTATOES & CHICKEN; SKILLET-ROASTED 1 Vidalia Sweet Onion; sliced thin 1/4th Cup of Chicken Stock 1/4th Cup of Water 5 Medium Yukon Gold Potatoes; Sliced into 1/4 in. rounds 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil 1 Tbl. Butter or quality margarine 2 Tbls. Rosemary 1 tsp. Paprika 1 tsp. Crushed Coriander 4 Bone-In, skin-on chicken thighes 4 Bone-In, skin-on chicken drumsticks (legs) Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Scatter thinly sliced onions all around a large-size cast iron skillet. Add water & stock mixture. Lay the potatoes over the onions and drizzle with olive oil all over potatoes. Rub rosemary seasoning between your fingers or palms of hands to “wake up” the flavor. Place small pats of butter or quality margarine all around the potatoes layer. Make a small rub of salt, pepper, paprika & crushed coriander and rub it thoroughly into all pieces and all sides of chicken. Lay chicken skin side up over the potatoes layer. Roast until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender. Apprx. 1 hour. * When I make this I spoon a whopping spoonful of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt over top of chicken & potatoes. The coolness of the cream or yogurt is a perfect contrast. VELVET IN YOUR MOUTH CREAMED SPINACH 1 Medium Bag of Frozen Spinach; thawed completely and placed into a clean, thin kitchen cloth and wrung out totally until all the liquid is out. 2 Cups of Heavy Cream; room temperature 1 Small Vidalia Onion; sliced in very thin slices 1/2 Stick of butter or 3 Tbls. of quality margarine 1 tsp. of Nutmeg Take a non-stick skillet, put a tad of butter in pan over medium heat. Take your thin-sliced onions and cut each one in half to form little half moon slices. Place in butter to slowly carmelize (just turn a tad brown). Add your heavy cream and let it get heated up and gradually in small handfuls, gently add to the skillet mix. Take a wooden spoon and stir in circles to incorporate spinach totally into sauce. 14

After it’s all well blended, add your butter and stir gently until also well incorporated. Sprinkle your nutmeg over the entire skillet blend and stir into the mix. You can add all this at once, I’m just breaking it down for you here. Seriously, this takes about 5 minutes to make and it is the best creamed spinach ever! Salt & pepper to taste. BROWNIES WITH A SPECIAL KICK (And no, not “special” like the ones’ in the 70’s) 10 Tbls. Unsalted Butter 1 Cup Pure Cocoa Powder 3-1/4 Cups Sugar or Splenda for Baking 3-1/2 tsp. Cinnamon 4 Eggs 1 tsp. Mexican Vanilla Extract (in Mexican food aisle in super market) If can’t find, just use regular Vanilla Extract 1 Pinch of Cayenne Pepper (you decide how much “KICK” you want 2 Cups Flour 1/2 tsp. Salt 1-1/4 Cups Bitttersweet Chocolate Chips Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Butter a 13x9 inch baking pan. Line your pan with parchment paper while leaving a 1-inch overhand on 2 sides. Melt butter in microwave (glass or ceramic bowl), add cocoa powder to melted butter and stir to mix. Using a wooden spoon, stir in cocoa & butter mixture. Add eggs 1 at a time. beating until just combined. Stir in Mexican Vanilla Extract. Mix in flour gently and salt gradually. Do not over-mix. Rough blend in chocolate chips. This will be a lumpy batter. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 30-40 minutes (40 for crispier sides) Transfer pan to a wire rack; cool completely. Dust lightly with confectioner’s sugar and slightly drizzle with Hershey’s hot, melted chocolate syrup. Serve with top-quality vanilla ice-cream. Serve up 2 for you and your Valentine, but only use one spoon. THE MORNING AFTER VAL-DAY Cook up a skilletful of Huevos Rancheros (Google it) Make a BIG pitcher of ice-cold Bloody Mary’s Eat lightly, drink enough to smooth the edges Go back to bed together and enjoy even more of what you totally enjoyed the night before. Then sleep most of the rest of the day. Isn’t genuine LOVE or LUST really fun? Hell Yeah

The Weakest Link

oday’s motorcycles afford us many options i.e. electronic fuel injection, computers on board that control all functions including lighting, brake, turn signal indicators ect. The computers control spark-timing and in those fuel injection systems, even how much fuel is injected and when its injected. These advances make for much better reliability and fuel economy, but with this comes a greater need for better and more reliable batteries. We have progressed from lead-acid batteries to gel cell, followed by AGM (absorbed glass mat), and now lithium. Even with all these advances the battery is still the weakest link. If not properly maintained i.e. kept on a clean tight terminal trickle charger at all times when not in use they can lose their charge in less than a month. If you let your battery deep cycle, which means to let it fall into a state of discharge and then recharge it, it knocks months or even years off its life. I see very few customer’s batteries lasting even 2 years when a good AGM should last 4 years or more, because people just neglect them. Just as a side note for those of you that have anti-theft devices, a FOB battery has 3.2 volts when new, if that battery falls below 2.9 volts it will no longer activate or deactivate the system and leave you stranded. The message here is to keep a spare with you. Its cheap insurance. The keys to longevity in batteries are: #1 Buy a good quality battery (Cycle Shack sells Deka and Interstate), #2 Get yourself a good trickle charger that matches your battery type (we stock them too), #3 When you’re not riding use it, even the best battery will fail if neglected. Don’t be the rider left behind on a Sunday, because you didn’t take care of your battery. Feel free to call us at Cycle Shack 410-922-6141 for more battery information. “Keep it shiny side up!” Bob Rothstein

A Grade “A” Build I

wish I knew how many Bike shows that I’ve been to in my life. Since we began Thunder Roads Magazine MD-DE-DC; it seems like we are always at a show somewhere. I’m not complaining. I’m just saying half of the year we are at a show somewhere. One thing I will say is that after you go to two or three you start to see some of the same things. I know a lot of you are saying poor Hillbilly he has to go to all the bike shows and hang with bands, bikes, babes, and shine. The only reason I brought this up is that I tend to see the same thing at all the shows. THANK GOD for my guest this month Joey Chanel. I had just returned home from out of town and wasn’t sure I was going to make it to Washington, D.C. and the IMS Bike show. I’m really glad I got to go to the show and meet Joey. He is a senior at George Mason University. He needed to do a senior project and he decided to build a Bike. What he came up with is awesome. As you can see from the pictures he used just about everything but one of my mason jars to build his bike. So I sat down on the porch with Joey and we

20

sipped some shine and had a little talk. HB - Do you ride bikes and when did you start? JC – Yes I was always around or on bikes. I raced motocross for 12 years and had a pretty bad accident. The option came up to go to college and I went to school and then how life has a way of messing with you it led me back to bikes. I had a 2008 Z86R but unfortunately it was stolen. At least this helped motivate me on this bike I built. HB – Where are you going to school and why did you decide to build a bike? JC- First off I was raised by two wonderful parents. My Mom and Dad supported me in everything. I was off racing and they were there helping and supporting me. Building a bike is a totally different experience. It’s a one on one thing that really grounds you as a person. It really helped me to find myself. I had great help from the amazing staff at George Mason University. I decided to major in sculpture and this way I got to challenge myself and broaden my horizons with the challenging classes that I took. It all came together and FEBRUARY 2014

became this bike. I asked a year before I graduated if I could build a bike and thankfully they said yes. After a year of building I think I got an A for a grade. HB-You say you went to school to be a sculptor and it led you back to bikes. Do you see yourself at a custom bike builder shop after graduation? JC- I would kill for a job in the bike industry. I’m just praying someone will give me a chance to show what I can do. I’m a hard worker and I hope that shows in my work. My dream is maybe to open my own shop someday. I need a job. I won’t disappoint you if you give me a try. HB- Have you had a chance to ride this bike? JC- I got it started this week went out for a test ride and wouldn’t you know it after 2 minutes I got pulled over by campus police. He said you have no license plate, no helmet, and about ten other violations. I explained what I had done and he said I will follow you around. I want to THANK that officer and the campus police for helping me achieve my dream and ride my bike. My bike rides like an old Schwin bicycle. Not bad for the first build. THUNDER ROADS MAGAZINE MD-DE-DC

After meeting Joey and seeing his bike I’m not as worried about the future. I’m not sure you will meet a nicer young man. He

is a credit to his family. He kept telling me how much he owed his parents and how big an influence they were on him. He also said he owes his girlfriend for being so patient during the project. I hope Joey gets a job in the motorcycle industry. He has that look in his eyes that you just know great things are ahead for him. I left out some of the things we talked about. Things like where some of the parts came from. Don’t worry Joey you are protected under Hillbilly and shine buddy confidentiality. Welcome to the family Thunder Roads

West Virginia! To my Brother Wayne “Big Dog” Donaldson who we lost recently, you will ride with me always. Thanks for the shine memories. Remember lose the lid and always share with friends. God bless you all. Hillbilly

Joey Chanel holds the second place prize in front of his entry, ‘Blood, Sweat and Gears’, in the Freestyle Class for the Ultimate Builder, Custom Bike Show competition during the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 12, 2014. Chanel built the bike using a 1979 Honda CM4000T frame, a completely rebuilt Honda 400cc motor and gearbox, a pair of fire extinguisher bottles for fuel tanks, a lowered front end with CBR 600rr front brake caliper and fuel filter brake reservoir and various other metal parts such as pipes, giant 4140 union joint nuts and custom made LED headlamp and tail lights. The backbone was extended using 3/8 inch flat steel cut to match a design template. Joey noted the fire extinguisher gas tanks are detachable in case he has to, ‘run to get some gas’ because he does not have a sight-gauge. © 2014 Greg L.

DAVID UHL AND STEVEN TYLER TEAM UP TO BENEFIT EDUCATION AND ARTS

W

orld renowned artist David Uhl of Uhl Studios and international music icon Steven Tyler of Aerosmith have recently teamed up for a historic charity project. David Uhl, the artist and founder of Uhl Studios, recognized for his unique style and vintage motorcycle and aviation paintings, recently created a monumental painting of Steven Tyler on a motorcycle riding through a crowd of paparazzi. This impressive 6-foot tall original oil painting on canvas , titled “The Reckoning”, is the largest effort by David Uhl to date and will be later offered to the public as limited edition fine art prints signed by both David and Steven. All of the profits from print sales will be directly funneled to benefit art and music programs in public schools. The creative idea behind this project has its roots in Steven’s active fight for privacy rights that resulted in submitting the entitled Steven Tyler Act into the State of Hawaii legislature. This legislation was intended to give more privacy to public figures, such as government officials and celebrities on vacation, raise awareness of these intrusions and afford public figures the right to sue aggressive paparazzi for trespassing and taking unwanted photographs.

“The Reckoning” by David Uhl

David Uhl and Steven Tyler first met in Sturgis in 2009, where they both took part in the Legends Ride. Both fervent motorcycle enthusiasts with a deep appreciation for art and music, they quickly became friends and kept in touch. Since then, David has painted numerous portraits of Steven and his family members, including his daughters Chelsea and Mia, and his son Taj. For the past year, both artists have been dreaming up this charitable collaboration to benefit arts and music 40

programs for public school students in need. The perfect opportunity and setting provided by the New York International Motorcycle Show has made this collaboration possible. The organizers of this renowned motorcycle show have graciously agreed to provide the stage for the unveiling event, the space for David’s largest gallery ever, as well as their full support for this charitable collaboration.

In David’s words: “Ever since I was in grade school I have witnessed the slow marginalization of art and music classes in our public schools. Of course now with our economic challenges, it’s off the charts...I understand it is difficult to quantify the benefits of this type of education, but personally I think it’s fundamental for the right brain development, especially in the early years.

To ensure that donations get directly to the source as quickly as possible, the artists have teamed up with DonorsChoose.org, an innovative online charity connecting classroom requests from teachers in high-need communities with donors who want to help. Benefiting underfunded arts programs in schools is a priority for David and Steven and both artists hope that their involvement will help maximize sales proceeds, attract other private donors and corporate sponsors, and give the project a momentum to continue to raise funds into the future.

My long time friend and artist Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, has always recognized the value of the arts in any vibrational frequency. To collaborate with him on a project like this is a perfect match. Together I am hoping we can make a difference in realizing the importance of keeping the arts alive and exciting for those who naturally love to play, our children.”

THUNDER ROADS MAGAZINE MD-DE-DC

Steven Tyler’s charity work includes participating in a variety of charity auctions, including the Ride for Children charity. He has joined other celebrities including Al Roker and Katherine Heigl, FEBRUARY 2014

to raise money for the Children’s Action Network, which increases awareness of foster care and adoption. Steven is also actively involved in supporting the VH1 Save the Music actions that raise awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education. David Uhl’s charity involvement includes contributions to Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and several motorcycling and art-related causes. David’s stunning original painting will be officially launched during the International Motorcycle Show in New York on December 14th, where Steven Tyler and David Uhl will reveal it on stage during a special presentation. Additional information will be provided next week as specific details become available. _______________________________ More information about David Uhl and Uhl Studios can be found at: http://www.uhlstudios.com 41

years of YOUR Tax Money to violate your Constitutional Rights, the program is “100% Voluntary”. As reported by a Ft Worth citizen Kim Pope, who was stopped on her lunch hour, it sure didn’t seem “voluntary”. “I gestured to the guy in front that I just wanted to go straight, but he wouldn’t let me and forced me into a parking spot,” she said. Once parked, she couldn’t believe what she was asked next. “They were asking for cheek swabs,” she said. “They would give $10 for that. Also, if you let them take your blood, they would pay you $50 for that.” At the very least, she said, they wanted to test her breath for alcohol. She said she felt trapped. “I finally did the Breathalyzer test just because I thought that would be the easiest way to leave,” she said, adding she received no money.

o you remember images from the 1950’s in America of beat Cops patrolling the sidewalks, waving at the citizens with a smile on their face? Yeah well what ever happened to those days? I think “Law Enforcement” in this country needs a major attitude overhaul. I’m not saying there aren’t still some who aren’t still this way, but it seems to be the exception not the rule. In some cases I believe it is directly related to our Government pushing their agenda on local departments. It still amazes me the articles that I read where for example in Des Moines where a father was arguing with his 19 year old son Tyler Comstock after refusing to buy him a pack of smokes and when Tyler left in his Father company truck, his Dad thought he’d teach him a lesson and call the Cops. Long story short Tyler ran from the Police and he struck a Police Vehicle with the truck. The truck finally broke down and stopped. Once stopped Tyler revved the engine and Police Officer Adam McPherson open fired with six shots into the truck killing Tyler. Even though a recently released audio recording instructed officers twice to stop following him. James Comstock, Tyler’s Father stated he lost his son over a pack of cigarettes. He made the same mistake many people do. They call the Police thinking that they will come to “Help”. They aren’t here to help; they are here to enforce laws, that’s it. Then there was the recent case where two Fullerton CA Police Officers Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli were acquitted of killing a homeless man, Kelly Thomas in 2011. Thomas was suspected of being in possession of stolen property. When confronted he did resist and a small altercation ensued. Look, I’m not a Cop, and I don’t have to deal with the day to day “what ifs” and unknowns when dealing with criminals, but according to a published report in the LA Times “Thomas was tackled, hit with a baton, pinned to the ground, punched repeatedly in the ribs, kneed in the head, Tasered four times and then struck in the face with the Taser device eight times,”. He died five days later as a DIRECT RESULT of these two adrenaline jockeys beating this man to death! You can look up the video of these two idiots beating this man to death if your stomach can handle it. Who in their right mind would believe that kind of brute force would be necessary to arrest one homeless man? If they can’t use the tactics that they were taught to take an unarmed subject into custody safely, then they should never have been allowed to wear a badge! There are many caveats as to why jury’s must find people not guilty, but in my mind there is absolutely no question these two A$$&%!@’s clearly MURDERED this man “Protecting and Serving” the good people of California. If I was in a career in Law Enforcement, I would be furious and embarrassed of the countless examples that are all over the internet of so many buffoons making a mockery of their profession!

To be fair, according to the article, they only employed “Off Duty” Cops to enforce this civil rights violation, so I guess that somehow makes in okay? Am I only the only person who thinks this is absolutely one of the most ridiculous Communist Gestapo 100% Constitutional Rights Violation of all time? Why are “We the People” Allowing this? In my humble opinion, anyone who consents to this either has no idea of their constitutional rights, or is just plain stupid, and they deserve to be fed to the slaughter as the good “sheeple” that they are. According to the article, a civil liberties expert attorney stated “You can’t just be pulled over randomly or for no reason,” said attorney Frank Colosi. He also noted the fine print on a form given to drivers informs them their breath was tested by “passive alcohol sensor readings before the consent process has been completed.” “They’re essentially lying to you when they say it’s completely voluntary, because they’re testing you at that moment,” Colosi said. Our Government and “Law Enforcement” LYING to the good people of this nation?? What? Unheard of! (Can you hear my sarcasm?) My personal experience over the course of my life has caused me to question everything that comes out of a “Peace Officers” mouth. What a shame. I just can’t imagine living a life so dedicated to repressing other individuals. Is it a DNA anomaly? A childhood issue they all have in common? It happens so often anymore that is engrained into the uniform I think. What a miserable existence it must be. Feeling empowered to lie to people, trust no one, and impose your feeble will on others. Wow, I just couldn’t imagine.

Do I want a Lawless society run by the Biggest Bully on the Block? No, we already have that in the Gangs of “Law Enforcement” & Governmental Agencies around our country. There is a time and place where Peace Officers are needed to help defend the defenseless, arrest those who would steal your possessions, and ensure Public Safety. What I can’t stand are hypocritical Agencies that Lie, Cheat and Steal our Rights, from the White House down to your local agencies. It’s pathetic and sickening. They should all be ashamed of themselves, and they should all be sent packing. In my opinion “Law Enforcement” should only be called upon as a total last Have you seen the news about the new “Voluntary” DNA Checkpoints? resort to a true emergency that you can’t handle yourself within the In 30 cities our government is setting up checkpoints and is requiring law and your rights. America, stand up for yourself, no one else is motorists to stop. Then they are “asking” for a sample of your DNA going to. Maybe if we demand it, “Law Enforcement” will get back and a Blood sample. Hell they are even offering your tax Money to their original intent and duty… to Protect and Serve. to anyone who will participate. This is an example of your Federal As always, thanks reading!

 LIMIT ON LEARNER’S PERMITS IN PA

Compiled & Edited by Bill Bish, National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM)

2014 PREDICTED TO BE A BREAKOUT YEAR FOR ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLES Navigant Research recently released a report titled “Electric Vehicles: 10 Predictions for 2014″ in which it is estimated that 700,000 plug-in vehicles will be on the road around the world by the end of this year. The given justifications? Rebounding economies, better products, battery prices that have come down providing competitive price points for e-motorcycles, a large potential clientele that has already had a positive electric experience via e-bicycles, e-scooters and e-mopeds. STUDY SHOWS WOMEN WHO RIDE ARE HAPPIER The old adage that you never see a motorcycle parked outside the psychiatrist’s office may prove more insightful than previously considered, as a new study reveals that the key to happiness for the better half of U.S. is a bike key! The Harley-Davidson Female Riders Survey, conducted by a leading global insights firm and commissioned by the HarleyDavidson Motor Company, shows that women who ride their own motorcycles are noticeably happier, sexier and more confident than women who don’t ride.  After interviewing 1,013 adult female riders and 1,016 adult female non-riders, the findings make it clear that riding a motorcycle greatly improves a woman’s feelings of overall self-worth. • More than twice as many always feel happy (37% of riders vs. 16% of non-riders) • Nearly four times as many always feel sexy (27% of riders vs. 7% of non-riders) • Nearly twice as many always feel confident (35% of riders vs. 18% of non-riders) More than half (53%) of women who ride cite their motorcycle as a key source of happiness, according to the findings, and nearly three in four (74%) believe their lives have improved since they started riding. When it comes to romance, the market research collected by Kelton Global also shows riding can improve relationships, as female motorcyclists are more content than non-riders with: • Communication with their significant other (60% of riders vs. 38% of non-riders) • Physical intimacy (51% of riders vs. 35% of non-riders) More and more women are, in fact, riding. A 2012 study by the Motorcycle Industry Council found that women accounted for 12% of U.S. motorcyclists -- up from 10.5% in 2009, and Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson is selling more motorcycles to women than all their competitors combined, according to Claudia Garber, Director of Women’s Outreach for HarleyDavidson. 48

Pennsylvanians who perpetually renew their motorcyclist permits to avoid having to take the state’s motorcycle safety course will soon have their strategy derailed, as a new law will limit the number of times a motorcycle rider can reapply for a learner’s permit to three times in a five-year period. Representative Seth Grove (R-Dover), author of House Bill 892, said some riders have been treating permits like actual licenses since current law allows them to reapply for a permit every year. “Permits are temporary and their purpose is to get riders to obtain full driver’s licenses,” said Rep. Grove. “This legislation will enable riders to learn properly while pushing them to actually get their motorcycle licenses.” Under current law, a permit is valid for one year, but some motorcyclists apply for it year after year so they are never required to take the safety course that’s required to receive the full four-year license, said Charles Umbenhauer, spokesman for ABATE of Pennsylvania, which supported the measure. Umbenhauer told the York Dispatch that the legislation is a continuation of other safety measures for which the ABATE organization has pushed.  Grove also introduced legislation that, when signed into law last year, required minors who hold motorcycle permits to successfully complete a free 15-hour riding course. HB 892 passed the House and Senate with little dissent and was signed into law by Governor Tom Corbett. HELMET USE IN MICHIGAN DROPS AFTER REPEAL, STILL HIGHER THAN NORM A state survey has found that nearly three-quarters of Michigan motorcyclists wear helmets, down from almost a hundred percent before the state ended mandatory universal helmet use in 2012, letting riders opt out under certain circumstances. Data for the Wayne State University study was collected over the summer by use of video cameras randomly placed across the state, and shows that 73% of motorcyclists in Michigan wear helmets, down from 99.4% in 2006 when the last statewide observation survey was conducted. Still, the authors note that Michigan’s usage rate is 13% higher than the 60% of U.S. riders spotted wearing helmets in a nationwide survey in 2012. Also interesting to note, the current rate of riders wearing helmets is slightly lower than the 74.7% of helmeted riders involved in motorcycle crashes, according to the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning, meaning lidless riders have a somewhat better safety record. The Michigan Department of Highway Safety said that helmet use varies widely among types of riders: 94.5% of people riding sports bikes wore helmets while only 33.3% of riders of choppers and custom bikes did. Female riders and those under 30 and over 60 also wear helmets more frequently. LOUD MOTORCYCLES TARGETED IN CHICAGO The city of Chicago is turning a deaf ear to loud motorcycles, so much so that that an alderman has proposed a ten-fold increase in fines for violators, those who change their mufflers to make them louder, according to DNAInfo Chicago. The alderman is calling it a quality of life issue, and his proposal would increase the maximum fine for violations from $100 to $1,000.

GEORGIA RIDER’S FAMILY QUESTIONS FATAL PURSUIT

MANDATORY HI-VIS REFLECTIVE CLOTHING LEGISLATED

A young Georgia man was riding his motorcycle to the gym during rush hour when a Richmond County deputy may have broke department policy and gave chase over invalid plates, ending in a fatal crash. The deputy was also on a motorcycle, a vehicle that – because of the risk involved – is “strongly discouraged” from initiating or participating in chases in Richmond and Columbia counties unless extenuating circumstances exist, policy states. According to policy, deputies are justified in beginning a chase even when the only information available is that the suspect hasn’t stopped as ordered, but after a chase has started, policy states that deputies must continuously evaluate the circumstances, such as the initial reason for the pursuit; traffic and weather conditions; time of day; direction of travel; the possible consequences; and most importantly, the safety of the public, the deputy and other law enforcement personnel. “Pursuits may continue if there are reasonable grounds to believe the suspect presents a clear and immediate threat to the safety of others or if the suspect has committed or is attempting to commit a forcible felony,” policy states. The family is considering legal options, but a police spokesman stressed that “while it is the deputy who initiates the traffic stop, it is the violator who initiates the pursuit.” Nationally, the U.S. De­part­ment of Transportation estimates that 6,000 to 8,000 police chases end in crashes each year, with close to 5,000 people being injured and 500 being killed. ROAD CRASHES #1 KILLER OF AMERICANS ABROAD

Effective January 1, 2014, it is mandatory for all motorcyclists and passengers to wear reflective jackets or vests when riding in the Republic of Mauritius, an island country in the south west Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa. Road Traffic Regulations passed last fall regarding “Use of High Visibility Clothing” states; “No person shall drive (or ride as a pillion rider on) a motorcycle or auto cycle, unless he wears high visibility clothing without any covering being worn over it that may cause obstruction to its visibility.” The regulations even dictate the type of polyester material, size of reflective strips and specific fluorescent colors (lime yellow, red or orange) “intended to provide conspicuity at all times.” Any person who contravenes these regulations shall commit an offence and shall, on conviction, be liable to a fine not exceeding 1,000 Mauritian Rupees (MUR). BAN ON MOTORBIKES IMPOSED IN SCOTTISH WOODLANDS

Road crashes have been named the leading cause of unnatural death among Americans who travel outside of the country, where they are unfamiliar with local driving rules and customs, and more U.S. citizens die in car or motorcycle accidents than from terrorist events according to a new study from Johns Hopkins University. Using data from the U.S. State Department that represented 5,417 unnatural deaths between January 2003 and December 2009, the research team calculated the rates of death by dividing the number of unnatural deaths by the number of Americans who visited each country. “We know that the distribution of road traffic fatalities varies dramatically across different parts of the world,” Huseyin Naci, from the London School of Economics and Political Science, told Reuters news service. “While pedestrian deaths are more common in many parts of Africa, motorcycle and bicycle deaths occur more frequently in southeast Asia.” Out of all the countries deemed unsafe for travel, Thailand ranked first among the most traffic-related deaths with 16.5 deaths per one million visits. Vietnam came in second with 15 deaths per one million visits, Morocco third with 12 deaths per one million visits, and South Africa fourth with 11 deaths per one million visits. Researchers also reported that scooter and motorcycle deaths accounted for a large portion of traffic-related deaths. THUNDER ROADS MAGAZINE MD-DE-DC

Scottish Police say that members of the pubic visiting Balkello Woods have been left “frustrated and concerned” by the irresponsible and illegal use of motorcycles in the area, both on and off road. Police Scotland and the Forestry Commission have joined forces in announcing a major crackdown on unauthorized motor vehicles in the woodlands; “Powers granted under Road Traffic and AntiSocial Behaviour legislation allow the police to seize vehicles – including motorcycles and mini-motos – where they have been driven without license or insurance, or, in this scenario, where they are used in an anti-social manner.” A force spokesman said: “Officers have long focused on reducing the anti-social and illegal use of motorcycles and make full use of Anti-Social and Road Traffic legislation to seize motorcycles that are being used illegally. Following enforcement, many of the vehicles seized are ultimately dismantled and crushed.” DUCK AND COVER  Like ‘em or love ‘em, the rift over the redneck Robertson clan from A&E Network’s top-rated “Duck Dynasty” showed that America still has a backbone, and Americans can influence change if enough of us stand together.  After the network suspended Phil Robertson over anti-gay comments, a grassroots tsunami of people from all walks of life lit up phone lines, email inboxes and fax machines as the surge of incoming communications quickly became so intense, employees of the cable giant reportedly complained that the company was overwhelmed and had all but ground to a halt. The uproar continued through Christmas until Friday, December 27, when A&E announced it was lifting the suspension and the show will continue. Millions of citizens -- many who had never taken any kind of action before – had successfully sprang to the defense of a man and his right to speak freely, irrespective of PC.  If the Duck Dynasty flap proves anything, it’s that -- when pushed too far -concerned Americans will rise up in response!
