I wonder if this will affect Bike Week here in Daytona. It's only a week or so away. I'll be sure to ask around as to whether anyone has had issues with this.
Don't get me wrong. It's wise and smart to keep an eye on things "like" this. Just in this case, it might not be as huge a deal as some are making it out to be. On the plus side, people are waking up, right? That's not a bad thing.

You guys should have a mass protest - ALL bikers ride together to dizzy city at once then camp out in front of the whitehouse.. also would be hilarious to see t.s.a reaction if several thousand bikers rode up on their little checkpoint at once.. Doubt theyd be so brave if they were outnumbered...

As a biker myself Even though I despise the idea of the TSA harrassing me for simply operating a particular type of motorized vehicle .
And find the underlying principle Unconstitutional as well.
The Biker Gangs have a long history of stealing bikes and in particular very expensive Harleys and I personally know a few people whom have had their bikes stolen at these rallies.
Anyone who has had their bike stolen at one of these rallies might see this from another perspective and might see it as a means of tracing and or even recovering their bikes back.

The Department of Homeland Security and it's TSA were products of the previous administration's Patriot Act before the President was even in the picture. He as with all Presidents are merely following orders from the powers who placed him in office only because of his allegiance to those who rule.
I can assure you that regardless of which elected official was elected to POTUS, we would still have the TSA as well as the ever increasing loss of our freedoms.
The TSA was created as part of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, sponsored by Don Young in the house and Ernest Hollings in the Senate, passed by the 107th U.S. Congress, and signed into law by President George W. Bush on November 19, 2001. Originally part of the United States Department of Transportation, the TSA was moved to the Department of Homeland Security on March 25, 2003.

This isn't just an attack on bikers. Look long range about this. If they do it to bikers and no one cares. Next it will be door-less jeeps at jeep jamborees. This is a stepping stone. Rest assured once they start doing it to bikers, in a couple years it will be another group. There far-reaching goal on this will be interstate checkpoints. Where everyone will be stopped and checked.
...Studies by their very nature are "discriminatory" as they target a specific problem or problem area, in this case motorcycle safety....
We are discussing it now, at Harley shops, Outlaw Club houses and Biker Bars accross the country, dont be suprised if not 1000s but 10s of 1000s ride on the whitehouse this spring............I would love to see that.......LOL
First they came for the communists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.
