    Was headed into town today to go to Walmart for supplies when I came across three separate groups of pirates riding motorcycles.

    The nicer weather has them coming out in droves and there is still gravel on the roads from winter in the intersections; there will be a fatality within a week or so I predict...

    Went into Walmart and got my stuff and went to the check out line and there was a guy in front of me that I initially thought was a pirate.

    He was not. He was the real deal.

    This guy was in full leathers, in his late twenties, very nice ink showing on his neck and hands. His club jacket was all black and I couldn't make out the logo since he avoided turning his back to me and I did not want to stare. I did make out the word "California" along the bottom.

    Guy was very polite to the cashier; almost awkwardly polite. It was like he wasn't used to talking to normal people. He was almost shy with her, but when he glanced at me, it was a 1000yd stare that I've seen very few times in person. Gave me the freakin' chills.

    Made me glad I was not a pirate...

    Anyway, keep in mind the bikers are out again...

    I am having trouble understanding your use of "pirate" in relation to a guy who rides a motorcycle.

    Could you explain

    You've been on GT for 14 years. You know what I'm referring to.

    They're on a motorcycle. I'm wearing a 4500 lb suit of powered steel armor and I'm armed.

    What have I got to be worried about?

    Are pirates the same as poseurs, or are they hardcore but fly under the radar so no one knows they're hardcore?

    Everyone knows that a biker can run an 18 wheeler off the road. Don't you watch TV? :)

    Black on white "California" or red on white "California?" The war between those two clubs is over the wearing of that part of their patch.

    If his jacket back has a rocker claiming territory, he is a member of a 1% motorcycle club.

    Just go about your business and quit making something out of nothing.
