It's because WE--meaning Robert "RC" Conroy, myself and many other dedicated motorcyclists' rights activists who have been battling for years against the carnage caused by drivers immersed in cellphone calls--have made damned sure that when asked the question "WHAT DID YOU KNOW AND WHEN DID YOU KNOW IT?", their answers if honest will be damning: http://tinyurl.com/yog8ke http://tinyurl.com/m92hpe
We hate to say we told you so, folks, but WE TOLD YOU SO.

"The battle for bikers' rights is not about patches, parties or poker runs. We fight to protect the freedom and promote the interests of American motorcyclists ... to defend our right to choose our own modes of transportation, attire and lifestyle ... to deter and defy discrimination against us ... and to vanquish those who violate our rights or right-of-way. And in the end, it will not matter to us whether we won or lost. But it will matter to us greatly that we fought."--Bruce Arnold
