Femmes Two, Cops One

January 6, 2015

All Posts, News

Television station KNXV in Phoenix reported Sunday that police in Surprise, Arizona pursued two motorcycles on Route 303 northwest of the city. The bikes then turned south on U.S. 60 and the chase reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.

One of the motorcycles stopped about 2:35 p.m. at the West Bell Road exit near the Surprise Marketplace where the rider surrendered, was taken into custody and eventually released. Police did not release her name.

A rider and passenger of the third motorcycle escaped and remain at large.

Police report that all three desperadoes were dressed in pink and were wearing patches indicating they were members of the LeFemme Knights Motorcycle Club.

Rollin Knights

The LeFemme Knights is a sister club of the Rollin Knights Motorcycle Club – a three piece patch club that states it “respects and supports all Motorcycle Clubs and Social Clubs that follow and respect the protocol of the MC Set.”

The club’s website says: “The Rollin Knights Motorcycle Club, a law abiding, not-for-profit organization, conceived in 2006 and established in 2007 in Phoenix, Arizona. We started with 16 men and women, all riders. We spent time in the community making sure they knew who we were and what we were about. We spent time at each other’s house on the weekends or out riding all day and night. In 2007 we were one of the few clubs in South Phoenix to have their own clubhouse. We have since moved to our new home, The Castle and things are getting bigger and better. We are all business professionals or active duty or retired military. We are a family and we look out for each other. We are doing things the right way and gaining a lot of respect throughout the motorcycle community.”

    Dear stroker,

    I also have to mention a running gun battle, in the not so distant past, that was staged, using blanks, by the ATF on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood.

    @ Johnny D:

    I don’t know you, and am not passing judgment on you.
    However, your statement:

    “While we may not meet the MC standards of some individuals we also don’t have running gun battles on our streets”

    …is just not true. Maybe it is now. Maybe things have settled down in the past few years.

    Use Rebel’s search bar, and type in: “The Sober Murders”
    or “Vagos Hells Angels Shootings”

    I certainly don’t mean to engage in an argument with you, simply pointing out some contradictions to what you’ve said.

    I don’t think any state is mutually exclusive of the drama that is part of our motorcycle culture.

    Unfortunately.

    First off, I didn’t see anything in the article that said they were riding Harleys. I know the Rollin Knights and they are a stand up club. The P and VP were in Sonny Barger’s movie Dead In 5 Heartbeats and some of the movie was filmed at their clubhouse. One advantage we have in Arizona is that we are not constantly at war with each other. We have Sonny to advise us on dealing with inter club relations and our COC is very strong. We here realize that our common enemies are government overreach and law enforcement using us as easy targets to pad their pay and increase their power. While we may not meet the MC standards of some individuals we also don’t have running gun battles on our streets or bombings of others’ houses. Arizona is a peaceful place for MCs and this gives us time to explore aspects of life other than constant war mentality. Yes, she was released quickly but they also have one of the best criminal attorneys I have ever known. That attorney will get up at 2 am to go to an interview and be at the bail hearing at 5 am. If bail money was needed it would have been there by the time she hit her cell. Out here our MC community comes together to take care of each other. We do fund raisers for legal fees, injured riders, families of those who pass away, and even for bail money for each other. We also have 365 days of riding weather. I believe that our good fortune leads to less tension and conflict.
    US 60 is actually Grand Avenue, an expressway not really a freeway. Surprise is a small town and has limits on how high speed pursuits are conducted. They do not have a helicopter and if they request one from Phoenix, Maricopa County, or DPS they have to pay for it and that city is not very wealthy.

    HDs are for going slow and that’s been the case since much higher-performance streetable motorcycles came out in the 1970s. Velocity has naught to do with outlawry but riding a slow horse may have functional disadvantages.

    Much love for my personal HDs because of their crude (therefore easily maintained) retro-agricultural equipment engineering (modern ag gear is often far more sophisticated) but they are an old man’s machine. Old men die and the Boomers will be pushing daisies shortly. The young will put their spin on their world for good or ill.

    My apologies to the young for inheriting a police state but at least they’ll have fast motorcycles thanks to Japan and Europe.

    If some small number of them want a less-contaminated, less vulnerable outsider culture they should invent their own and copy no one but learn from all the mistakes made by everyone on any side of the “law”.

    As Boomers die off so will a lot of the authoritarian shitbags and Bible Thumpers currently running the show. It will be up to their successors how much government shit they choose to eat.

    Sounds like a teenage girl…”don’t judge me”

    I don’t see any judgments, I see opinions. Funny thing about those, everyone has one, etc., etc.

    As to “internet “outlaws””, I have never claimed to be one. Criminal, yes, I am. Outlaw, no. Sorry.

    Oh, the irony of internet “outlaws” passing judgment on others.

    @Sieg and all other commentators:

    Thanks for your insight and for sharing your thoughts on the subject. I don’t want to diminish Rebel’s outstanding work the tiniest bit (quite the opposite, I came here because of ‘Out Bad’) but I also believe it is the input of the regulars here that makes this site what it is (at least for me): a valuable and authentic source of legit first-hand knowledge about the biker/mc culture.

    On topic: After looking at some of the abovementioned club’s pictures and videos myself I have come to the conclusion that at least for me, gangbanging (even if only pretended) and the MC (sub)culture do not fit.
    But then again – that’s just my 2 cents for whatever they’re worth.

    Respect to those who deserve it,
    Tom

    I believe that Sieg is saying that there is a traditional MC lifestyle, a culture that developed in a certain way so that it eventually became codified, and that there are things that are outside of that culture that are not generally accepted as part of that code.

    @ Sieg, kudos 4 exercising ur right of free speach.

    The Rollin Knights recently lost a chapter that patched over 2 a different MC here in Phoenix. Also, it’s gonna get real interesting here soon with another major MC in the MC world setting up shop here.

    Respect 2 those who’ve earned it.

  12. Sieg Says:

    Tom, not a question of my “not liking” the Rolling Knights. Never met one, never saw one, and before this, never even heard of them. Guess maybe I am being provincial, but as you note, most Black clubs keep to themselves. It is, at least here in the Midwest, very rare for members of Black clubs to socialize with White clubs. Actually, I have seen it, but again, it is rare.

    Guess I would just say that there are many segments, for lack of a better word, of the MC world. They don’t typically mingle. As for the clubs you mentioned, the East Bay Dragons, etc., most of them are old-line Patches, and they maintain their traditions and pretty fairly reflect their White counterparts. My basic disagreement with this particular club comes, as noted, here:

    “All you have to do is look through some of the pix on the Rolling Knights page, and you will see Indigenes being Indigenes. Shit all busted out, flashing signs, all that good stuff. Got not a thing to do with traditional MC culture.”

    The pix on their site show people that, absent a motorcycle, one would take to be plain, garden-variety, gangbangers. “Shit all busted-out”. In other words, clothing and hats tipped radically to one side to represent an affiliation. “Flashing signs”. Holding up their hands in a certain position, which also represents an affiliation. None of that is typical in the MC world, Black, Latin, or White.

    I have much respect for old-line clubs that have members of differing races, but clubs that make a big noise over being “inclusive”, or “multicultural”, or whatever, typically are neither. There are Latino and Indian members of about all the large clubs, yet they don’t climb all over themselves to scream about how multi-kulti they are.

    The old adage applies; if you say “Black Power” you are proud of your race. If you say “viva la Raza” you are proud of your race. If you say “White Pride”, you are a filthy ray-ciss and should be in prison.

    @Sieg

    A happy and healthy new year to you – I hope you don’t take offense if I quote you as follows:

    “There are a lot of Blacks that ride motorsickles. There are clubs of Blacks who ride motorsickles. There are clubs that mix Black, Brown, Yellow, whatever, and ride motorsickles.

    But they aren’t now, and never will be, no matter what any multi-culti pinhead or “justice” department lawyer says, part of the MC world.”

    I understand that you don’t like the Rolling Knights for your own reasons, but the statement you made above is rather general and according to it, where do you see Latinos or Native Americans fit into the MC scene? – From what I learnt, they have been part of the MC scene (including the onepercenters)forever.

    I also learnt – and please correct me if I’m wrong as there is nothing comparable here in Germany – that the Black MC scene calls itself “The Set” and rather keeps to itself. But then again – clubs like the East Bay Dragons, Chosen Few, Defiant Ones and others have also been around for ages. Do you think these clubs don’t “qualify” for being part of the MC scene just because of their race?

    Respect to those who deserve it,

    I am very surprised that a Harley (2up) got away from the police. Harley’s can’t corner, they max out at what 120-130? Ford Crown Vics can match that. I have to assume there was only 1 pursuing officer and he/she stopped with the bike that stopped. The officer was probably too far out in the sticks to get back up, or he never called for fear of getting embarrassed by escaping motorcycles.

    I ride a V-Rod and have had a hard enough time managing this escape feat myself with this bike, I’m not sure I could pull it off on a standard air-cooled Harley.

    However I have found that on any Japanese 600-1400cc super sport bike, getting away from cops is ridiculously easy, child’s play even. Makes me wonder when people will realize that rocket riders are the new “outlaws”, because by definition your not an “outlaw” if they catch you.

    I make no apologies, not am I looking for a pissing match. The Rollin Knights I personally know & have ridden with & have been involved with for charities & such are stand up guys.

  16. Sieg Says:

    Butthurt motorcyclist….alrighty then.

    Let’s see, I don’t respect the Rolling Knights-which is what I specifically said, for those whose reading comprehension might be a tad challenged.

    The rest?

    Our entire culture has been influenced by the military-so what?

    Guess things must have changed considerable…Garrison-duty was always for those who didn’t see combat duty.

    If you don’t want people to laugh about your “mc” cred, little fella, you should take a look at the way you portray yourselves.

    Awwww……so cute. The little butthurt motorcyclist doesn’t respect multicultural clubs. Great! One less loser to be concerned with.

    MC Culture has, and will always be, influenced by our military. My beloved Army didn’t see color. In Iraq and Afghanistan the only color I cared about was the red, white, and blue on the sleeve of the man beside me in Garrison. I guess people who’s only battlefield has been a Harley dealership wouldn’t understand that though…..SMH

  18. Sieg Says:

    Wouldn’t get anywhere near em…I learned about Brer Rabbit and the Tar-Baby when I was just a lil skeeter.

    There are a lot of Blacks that ride motorsickles. There are clubs of Blacks who ride motorsickles. There are clubs that mix Black, Brown, Yellow, whatever, and ride motorsickles.

    But they aren’t now, and never will be, no matter what any multi-culti pinhead or “justice” department lawyer says, part of the MC world. They can put on whatever cubes they want, but it don’t make it so.

    All you have to do is look through some of the pix on the Rolling Knights page, and you will see Indigenes being Indigenes. Shit all busted out, flashing signs, all that good stuff. Got not a thing to do with traditional MC culture.

    I got about as much respect for them as I do for the genetically-white send-off hanging on the corner, being “pretty fly, for a White guy”, with his homies.

  21. Phuquehed Says:

    Except when they break a law and get to be released a short time later, whereas if it had been someone from one of the big clubs, they’d be still sitting in the can and the fucking DA would be trying to think up every plausible way to fuck the guy possible. I can’t respect those double-standards.

    respect to the Rolling Knights, they are good people

    I think I farted a rollin knight a little while ago…it was kinda greasy.
