Black Bike Club on 45

On the way to the airport just now traffic came to a complete stop near 610 and I could see that there was no traffic on the overpass ahead. Turns out some dudes had traffic stopped so a huge amount of harley riders to get on. When traffic finally started it was really slow and annoying as he'll because I was in a hurry.

Was there a chrome and neon convention in Houston this weekend?

If it was a funeral, then I say be respectful If it was a group with a police escort, then fine. If it was just a bunch of bikers stopping traffic so they can all stay together, them.

That happened to me a bout a month ago and I almost got obliterated by a guy behind me along with a lot of other near misses.

Some people here will tell me and you to off if we dont like it but I carry my kids in my car and the fact that I almost got destroyed had I not got out of the way really me off.

Someone else here commented that when you are on a group ride, you just have to do what you have to do and not worry about what happens to other peple because of it.

Pretty if you ask me, but I was told to off, was called all kids of and pretty much threatened for speaking against like this.

Some people just dont give a rat's , pretty much, about drivers on the freeway and the consequences of doing this yet they get angry that drivers do the same.

I've seen and been on rides where a biker will stop traffic to let the rest go. I saw a North Side ride do just that. It was the one where the sweeper and organizer (one in the same) stalled out at the stop sign.

To me it's circumstantial.

I let a group of bikers out up here in Magnolia. The road was terrible and traffic was never ending. I slowed down and flashed them to move.

BTW, I made it perfectly clear to my family that I DO NOT want a funeral. Just knowing that someone might get hurt or killed or just inconvenienced cause of me just bums me out. It enough people have to deal with your death do then have to deal with a funeral. BTW, when I stated this, I was in bed incapacitated with a heart valve infection with a good chance of dieing.

Well, I was in a funeral in December and I did not like any bit of it. I was just going to go to the cemetery on my own and wait for the f procession to get there. It was one of my closest friends and a few friends convinced me to go . Well, I got to witness someone get killed no more than 3 feet from me by a constable hauling to get to the next light to stop traffic.

So dont care for it. It makes no sense.

OH, and it was a biker funeral with a ton of bikes as well, WITH police escorts, organized and someone STILL got killed.

No police presence but the traffic stoppers had unfastened hivis vests.

I doubt it would be a funeral on Sunday morning.

teeeeeeehehehehehe

as for the stopping, i think for reasonable amount of bikes, maybe 20 or less, that's no problem to stop traffic for less than 45 seconds. but those huge groups are a mess. break up into smaller groups and.... regroup. i like the word group

So, where the bikes black or the people riding them?

Just wondering why the distinction in color?

With all due respect, I think funerals should stay off the freeway. Put the funeral home or church next to the cemetary and you're done. Makes me mad that police escorts actually lost their lives making way for a funeral procession. That's not how the deceased would have wanted it, I'm pretty sure.

Both, duh.

I guess the distinction is because I'm observant.

Like I said, I have made it clear, I want no funeral. Ask people to meet at the cemetery at a set time and be done with it.

I would hate it that someone would die just because I had to have a funeral.
