lousina_mask_exemption_featured_image_2-620x350New Louisiana Law Exempts Motorcyclists From Anti-Masking Arrests

By David Devereaux
Motorcycle Profiling Project

Motorcyclists in Louisiana score a big win! Efforts of motorcycle rights advocates paid off when the Louisiana legislature approved a law exempting “persons driving or riding a motorcycle” from the state’s anti-masking statute. (See Louisiana State Legislature-HB161)

The Louisiana House passed HB 161 on a vote of 95-0 on June 5th, 2017 following a mass majority approval by the state Senate on May 30th, 2017. The legislation is on its way to the Governor’s desk.

The MPP reported in November of 2016, (See “Bikers Arrested for Wearing Bandanas”, November 29, 2016) following a trip to Louisiana as a guest speaker at a Louisiana

Confederation of Clubs and Independents (LCOC&I) meeting, that motorcyclists wearing legal helmets were being arrested for violating a state “Anti-Masking Law” originally intended to deter public acts of terror being committed by the KKK.

Drowning PoolDrowning Pool and Trapt to Launch 2017 Festival at Sturgis Buffalo Chip

The Best Party Anywhere! will kick off with some hell-raising grooves and monstrous vocals.

Press Release: The two heavy metal bands chosen to open the Wolfman Jack Stage at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip on Friday, Aug. 4 have reputations for presenting shows burning with fiery musical adrenaline. Trapt, an alternative metal band with a heavy hit and seven albums on their resume, will open for Drowning Pool, a platinum-plus band that promises to deliver some aggressive heavy rock. The performances will ignite fans looking to kick off the rally with a blazing-hot concert. See the band announcement video and find more info by visiting www.BuffaloChip.com/BANDS.

Brazenly defiant, Drowning Pool’s first album, Sinner, was certified platinum within six weeks of its release. A number of songs from the album have been featured at various WWF events, including Tear Away and Bodies. Each of the band’s last three albums has debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Hard Rock chart.

Drowning PoolTrapt has produced seven studio albums and is best known for its scorching-hot hit Headstrong. The song rocketed to the number one spot on both Billboard’s Mainstream Rock and Modern Rock charts and peaked at No. 4 on the Top 40 chart. Headstrong was rated the No. 1 alternative song and No. 8 rock song of the decade of the 2000s by Billboard. The song has been featured in numerous video games and movies including the Bruce Willis film Tears of the Sun.

“These two bands have some real muscular power over heavy metal,” said Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “We’re opening 2017 with bands that will deliver a distinctive musical crunch and ignite the audience to sing along with their powerful hits. This is only the first of nine nights of spectacular rock performances that include the likes of Ozzy Osbourne and Blink-182. You won’t find this kind of line-up anywhere else.”

Part cirque and part burlesque, The Flaunt Girls will take the stage prior to the bands’ Friday performances. The Dirt Riot Off-Road Race trials taking place that same day at the Buffalo Chip’s PowerSports Complex located across Alkali Road, will be free to the public on Friday.

As the largest and most easily accessed concert and camping venue east of Sturgis, concert attendees not already camping at the Buffalo Chip will be able to access the free parking area at the east gate, about 5 miles from exit 37 on I-90. Read More

Street RodNew Harley-Davidson Street Rod Drag Bikes Ready To Race At Englishtown

Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines Team Set to Roll Out All-New NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycles

Press Release: The Harley-Davidson Street Rod will hit the drag strip this weekend when the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines drag racing team debuts all-new Street Rod-inspired bodywork for its Pro Stock Motorcycle competition bikes at the NHRA Summer Nationals, June 8-11, at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, Englishtown, N.J.

Powered by the liquid-cooled High Output Revolution X 750 engine with suspension tuned for maneuvering through traffic and gritty urban streets and steeped in tough Harley-Davidson Dark Custom styling, the Harley-Davidson Street Rod inspires the sleek, menacing lines of carbon-fiber racing bodywork that will look right at home on the NHRA starting line.

Street Rod“With its muscular stance, high-performance engine and hot-rod inspired styling, the new Street Rod motorcycle is the perfect vehicle to carry Harley-Davidson’s championship winning Pro Stock Motorcycle program forward on the race track and in the showroom,” said Scott Beck, Harley-Davidson Global Brand Director.

The new Street Rod competition bodywork was designed at the Harley-Davidson Design Studio in Milwaukee in collaboration with Vance & Hines Motorsport and was wind-tunnel tested in Indianapolis during its development.

“The Street Rod is a contemporary interpretation of American performance and Harley-Davidson design heritage. It’s a tough looking motorcycle with design cues that reflect hot rod and muscle car DNA,” said Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson Vice President of Styling & Design. “We wanted to create a new body that would not only be competitive on the track but also embodies the personality of the production Street Rod, which we think is a great tie in because they are both motorcycles with dynamic performance deeply rooted in their DNA. We particularly love the design of the fairing and the bobbed tail section because they truly identify the motorcycle. Whether it’s the race bike or the production bike, from 200 feet away you know it’s a Street Rod.” Read More
