About Freedom

I found the following quote today while looking for some parts online.  Don’t know what caused the search engine to go there, but I thought it was appropriate for some of the problems bikers face when dealing with a few non-bikers and unreasonable restrictions on/at rallies and other events.  It’s also thought provoking given the direction we, as a country (U.S.A.), seem to be headed.

“First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out–      because I was not a communist;

Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out–      because I was not a socialist;

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out–      because I was not a trade unionist;

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–      because I was not a Jew;

Then they came for me–      and there was no one left to speak out for me.” – Martin Niemöller,  WWII era German

Happy (and safe) Biking!
