Guy Gets Called "Dirty Biker" & Has Great Response That Goes Viral
Luc is a guy who admits to doing what he says are "stereotypical" biker things like you know, tattoos, drinking beer, etc. He also says to never judge a book by its cover.
While test-driving his mother's motorcycle, Luc decided to take a quick break.
As he was resting, a little girl standing not too far away nearby decided to just wave and simply wave and say hello.
After he exchanged a smile and said hello back in return, the girl’s mother grabbed her by the hand.
As Luc explained, he could hear her say, “We don’t talk to dirty bikers” before rushing off.
Luc then went on to say that his feelings were hurt as he decided to take to Facebook and rant on about the altercation that quickly went viral:
To the family in the red SUV at Tim Horton's today,,
Yes I am a big 280 lbs guy with motorcycles and full of tattoos, I am a welder, I am loud, I drink beer, I swear and I look like I would eat your soul if you stare at me wrong.
What you don't know is that I have been happily married for 11 years, my kids call me daddy, i am a college graduate, my mother is proud of me and tells everyone how lucky she is to have such a wonderful son, my nieces and nephews are always happy to see there m'noncl Luc, when my daughter broke her arm I cried more than she did. I read books, i help people, I go out of my way to thank war veterans and I even cried at Armageddon.....
So next time I smile and say hi to your little girl and you grab her and tell her " No no dear we don't talk to dirty bikers" remember that even tho you hurt my feelings this "dirty biker would be the first person to run into your burning house to save your little girls gold fish so she wouldn't be sad!!!!
As we share our stories it becomes clear to us that sadly most are not in the know. What do I mean? Assumptions made judgments passed without a single thought.
If we look back in history our brave American veterans who served our nation in what I'd say was the most unpopular war in our 200 plus year history. These young men and women came back after sacrificing everything they had to a population of non-loving Americans. The abuse and name calling were bad enough, but sadly some of our brothers were killed here within our borders by the very people these brave souls were in all sincerity protecting. This is something no one would ever want to live through. After years and years of being judged and looked down on mostly in silence as the decades passed.
We want to issue you a small life challenge. Think back on a time you made an assumption about a fellow brother or sister. Possibly making a decision that affected that person in a negative way. Take a minute and ask yourself, What if I was totally wrong? How were my personal feelings and life changed by someone doing the same towards me?
We need to remember this at all times, in the very same way some may look down on others some look in the opposite direction when laying eyes on us. As the complex human beings, we truly are. There are many times you may be looked upon as a leader when you don't ever see yourself as one. Our words are sometimes more powerful than our actions. So we can effect big change with our words and actions whether you're looked down on or admired is secret.
As bikers across this beautiful great nation, we experience both sides regularly. It is my personal opinion that sometimes slowing down and knowing when I'm moving like a bull in a china closet that when I'm in that state of mind I have a higher propensity to make bad judgments and when in that space its best to be quiet and not trust the first thing that pops into my mind about someone.
In closing, we will continue to make these mistakes and receive judgment especially when we're on a Hog. Maybe just maybe you'll think back on our brouther Luc and who he truly is, a great big hearted man that could crush most but rather not.
Spead the love
All American Biker
