A Call To Bikers: Boycott The Chicago Motorcycle Show?

Uploaded to YouTube by CHGOTHNDER on Feb. 1, 2012

"The Chicago Chapter of A.B.A.T.E. of Illinois asking EVERYONE to BOYCOTT the Chicago Motorcycle Show. They have a "NO COLORS" Policy...NO COLORS NO BIKERS!"



"Many places and/or public events have decided on a no colors rule policy (pressured into it by the man). The reason for this, in their opinion, is that it will cut down on violence and the intimidating of the general public. When someone wears an item that shows membership or support of one group and someone else wearing an item from another group that is similar but has a different point of view meet in the same location then who knows what will happen. The perception of a person, by the general public, will also change once he/she is identified as belonging to or associating with a group. This can, sometimes, cause people to feel intimidated especially if there is more than one person from the same group. It is because of this I agree no colors should be worn in public."

1. From Skully:

You talk about a safety problem? You probably have more fights at a crosstown Cubs-Sox game than you have at a motorcycle show. How would you like to be told you can't wear a Sox shirt at a Cubs game - ya know, safety concerns.
