  1. Nice to see rally riders out and about on such a nice day. Again , its a pity media trying to get a story by irresponsible reporting attempting to create fear via social media and via others who gathered for a social rally. Surely, the general public can see the media has no crediability which seems to be their only qualification to be a so-called reporter whether it be old/new news, recent / current or just plain made up. Sadly, the media again focused on the past differences of opinion between others. SYLB RESPECT . AU

  2. Go home and get your AR15 or your granddaddy's .460 Boy Howdy. When the MRAPs and Stykers start rolling, you may as well just shoot spitballs at them.

  3. When radical islam threatens this country , Bikers are the ones I will look to for protection, most are patriotic and are veterans, protectors of the nation.

  4. Bandidos and Hellas angels ruined neighbourhoods in the 90's and 2000's as much as the Muslim and middle eastern gangs do in 2018

  5. people need to do their homework. If the Banditos had any intentions of starting what happened in Waco , they would have taken more than 20 members. The news really knows how to look stupid

  6. Notice how if you don’t “f” with them how nice things go Waco was a cop shooting festival let’s face it it’s on dam film! Fear COPS! not bikers

  7. the media and the leos know how to play the system, they are making us look bad, but with the clubs that are under fire like this don't get their side of the story out is just as bad. We as a biker nation need to stand up tall and make our selves known, the great things we do. I say this a lot on my channel
