Motorcycle clubs fight to keep their trademark ‘colors’

WASHINGTON

Federal prosecutors have dropped a controversial bid to seize the trademark owned by a motorcycle club that casts itself as the “Devils Diciples.”

But while the development this week cheers the Midwestern group and the California-based lawyer who represents them, it does not entirely slam the brakes on other trademark challenges involving motorcyclists’ fierce and distinctive logos.

Still in the government’s cross hairs, notably, is the trademarked logo for the Mongol Nation, a Southern California-based motorcycle club whose intellectual property has been sought by federal prosecutors since 2008. A federal appellate court is now considering the Mongol Nation case.

Harley Davidson to stop selling illegal air pollution devices

(Reuters) - Harley-Davidson Inc (HOG.N) agreed to pay a $12 million civil fine and stop selling illegal after-market devices that cause its motorcycles to emit too much pollution, the U.S. Justice Department said on Thursday.

The settlement resolves government allegations that Harley sold roughly 340,000 "super tuners" enabling motorcycles since 2008 to pollute the air at levels greater than what the Milwaukee-based company certified to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Harley did not admit liability, and said in a statement it disagrees with the government's position arguing that the devices were designed and sold to be used in "competition only."

Entitled Muslim Refugees Got a BRUTAL Surprise When These Bikers Showed Up

Westerners and many other nations have lost all patience for refugees. 1,700 Germans attended a rally that waved an antimigrant flag. You know it’s bad when even the “compassionate” Westerners have had enough of these people. they certainly have worn out their welcome. I’d say we have been pretty hospitable but we have to look at the facts, they bring a severely increased risk of danger!

Reports now indicate a rogue band of “bikers, hooligans and bouncers” organized a migrant “manhunt” on Facebook before attacking a group of Pakistanis in Cologne.

Hells Angel leader from Oakfield given 25 years in federal prison for meth distribution

An Oakfield resident who was reportedly a high-ranking member of the Hells Angels has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for his part in a methamphetamine distribution ring.

James Heney "Mitch" McAuley Jr., 67, also will be barred from associating with members of the Hells Angels for five years upon his release from prison.

McAuley had previously entered a guilty plea to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.

Federal investigators say McAuley, a vice president of the Rochester chapter of the Hells Angels, was a leader role in a distribution ring that obtained meth from a source in California and had it shipped to New York for sale in Rochester.

The operation continued from at least 2002 through July 2010, with McAuley running it even after he was taken into custody on a racketeering charge in 2007.

Danell Lynn Sets World Record for Longest Journey by Motorcycle in a Single Country

Giant Loop has announced that sponsored rider Danell Lynn has set a new Guinness World Record for “Longest journey by motorcycle in a single country.” Traveling for a year on her Triumph Bonneville equipped with Giant Loop gear, Lynn covered 48,600 miles while riding throughout the contiguous 48 states of the Unite States of America. Lynn is the first solo woman motorcyclist to hold the record.

Although her travels actually covered all 50 states, as well as three Canadian provinces, totaling more than 53,000 miles from September 2014 through September 2015, Guinness only counted the miles logged within the continental 48 states. Duplicate miles also did not apply to the record; each of the 48,600 miles covered different routes.

For her world record setting ride, Lynn used Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers, Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Rogue Dry Bag, Possibles Pouch and Pronghorn Straps on her 2006 Triumph Bonneville.

Balkin Bandidos’ bikies visit murder suspect mate in his Serbian hideaway

A BIKIE wanted for questioning over a murder, and who has eluded crime-fighters for two years after fleeing Australia, has managed to catch up with his Bandidos’ buddies while holed-up in Serbia.

It can also be revealed Bogdan Cuic flew to Thailand a day after the 2012 shooting of Jack Lee, 22, spending a week’s “vacation” in the known Bandidos’ playground before taking refuge in his family homeland.

Fellow “Balkan Bandidos” from the Brisbane Centro chapter shortly after retraced Cuic’s steps to Thailand then on to Serbia, where police believe they spent time with him.

Homicide squad Detective Superintendent Steve Holahan said police believed a number of Cuic’s relatives and friends “would know where he is and would be in contact with him’’.

Detectives looking to pinpoint Cuic’s whereabouts rely on co-operation from counterparts in the Australian Federal Police and in Serbia, a country with whom Australia has no extradition treaty.
