There will be hell to pay for this

So that was a large group of (ahem) motorcycle enthusiasts hanging out on Avenue A Sunday afternoon. What do you think, some 50-60 bikes in total on either side of the street between Seventh and Sixth? Not real big on having their picture taken, huh? But one fellow was nice enough to finally say OK to this shot.

as a group, a genre, a class, today's NYC "motorcyclists" are punks, plain and simple. As a kid my girlfriend's brother was a member of NC's Outlaw's motorcycle gang. The Outlaws would eat these punks for lunch. Yet, they were actually nice guys. Take a picture? Sure. Want a brew? No problem. Screw over my sister? I will kill you. But they had honor, and weren't simply weekend noisemakers.

Funny how a group of, say, 100-150 people crowding a public sidewalk would say that we couldn't take their picture...
