A Biker Fairy Tale
This legend of lore is based upon phone calls I have received over the past 3 hours...
Once upon a time, some angels from hell decided to visit a large gathering of brothers that was being held near a large chunk of rock that featured the faces of 4 U.S. presidents. While at this gathering the angels ran into some outlaws. Now depending upon who passes the story along, either the angels or the outlaws raided the others' box of goodies.
While the winds grew fierce and the hail rained down the angels and outlaws battled it out. When the storm was over an outlaw was literally a rider on the storm while the angel was called to answer for the deed.
The angels had enough and called in others while the outlaws leader began telling all to hide their colorful wear. The bystanders with their booths of tokens and trinkets became fearful as the heavens rained down and started packing up their toys to go away and hopefully come back another day.
Who will win the battle of the angels and outlaws?
Only time will tell.....
Many biker gang members armed legally

It would have been an unusual traffic stop any other time of year in South Dakota, but a law officer says stopping several armed members of the Outlaws biker gang last night near Plankinton was not peculiar because of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
State Patrol Captain Kevin Joffer says many motorcycle gang members carrying concealed handguns are stopped daily during the rally. He says nearly all of them have permits to carry concealed handguns.
Statistics so far during rally week seem to bear that out. Although several hundred thousand bikers have converged on Sturgis, just eleven people have been arrested for concealed weapons violations.
Law enforcement agencies are paying special attention to biker gangs since a shootout between Hells Angels and Outlaws on Tuesday in Custer State Park.
