    This is a comment from Danny that was accidentally deleted and recovered. Sorry about that Danny.

    I am not affiliated with any club, I live to ride, i no nothing of the lifestyle, and what happened was bad, but if you werent there when it happened you have no right running your mouth, i wasnt there so i will not say anything about that other than it was bad for everyone involved, cause both have lost , im in roanoke va. and the Pagans have been here the whole 41 years ive been alive, and im proud to say that, I have probably ridden with members before, I would not know if I have or not, the point is the Pagans do not go around starting shit like we hear about other clubs, they are like everyone else in this world, we all want respect, the Pagans get respect, the rest of the world cries about it because they cant get it, Ive never seen trouble started for no reason, everyone should not be judging them for taking care of their business, Im proud of the Pagans and even tho I dont know them personally I would have their back anytime, I would like to see more of them, but society has made bikers out to be outlaws, and all they ever get is harrassed by the law, how about all the cults and city gangs, you dont see the law harrassing them, people are jealous of bikers and resent them for it, people should wise up, without bikers, we would really be in sad shape.
