I sure agree with that Britluv. I knew a number of club members of the "Outlaws" here in Florida and they were not a myth created by the media. They were hard-core and unpredictable, with a capacity for mayhem on a pathological scale. Truly 1%. Some of them could be fun to party with but I wouldn't trust any of them with my wallet, my sister, or the keys to my house. Not being an Outlaw, I never expected the loyalty that I know they gave to each other and with that in mind; you kept your wits when you were around them. As for their bikes; they were junk. Nice choppers did not belong to Outlaws. They rode the most beat-up pieces of crap I have ever seen, Of course there were exceptions but that was not the rule. I used to hang out at Gabby Monroe's shop in Winter Garden, Florida. The Outlaws were always there but I never saw them doing motor work or anything techincal. I've heard the Hells Angels had nice bikes but I think that club had many profitable sources of income. The Outlaws were guys that had to struggle financially and socially and their bikes reflected their social status. On the other end of the spectrum, I had friends that had nice choppers and they were responsible, hard working, upright citizens that liked the esthetics of choppers and could afford to have their bikes professionally (?) done. There was a difference between an "outlaw" bike and a "citizen's" bike and I would bet the AMCA is not going to be very receptive to the former. As for this "Custom Class" thing; I think it's just another thing that will dilute the AMCA further and bring about a new club that will be more focused and true to the first 50 years of American motorcycling. By the way, I'm just typing stuff (flow of consciousness jazz) so don't everyone get all miffed.
