A modern day "Hollister incident" in spades. CNN News just reported 170 murder indictments over the 9 dead and 20+ wounded.

Today the news reports that police have requested all motorcycle riders to stay off the road in Waco, TX.

http://news.yahoo.com/police-want-b...0525363.html

With my riding attire of full face helmet and full riding suit I do not think that I look anything like the riders I have seen in the news photos. I don't know if the non-riding world makes a judgement based on the clothing or just the fact that there is a motorcycle involved.

I am not concerned about what the non-riding world really thinks. If I am just passing through by coincidence, I am concerned about what LEO thinks. Certainly one look at me and most should be able to tell I am not a threatening person. Would I really be expected to avoid the area to avoid conflict? That is sad if true.

edit - What if I lived there andused my bike as my commuting vehicle?

If they had all shown up in cars before the rumble, would they ban all cars?
