We have had a few interesting things happening in Quebec right now. First of all, the police are coming down hard on noisy bikes. If you are riding a bike with modified exhaust...it's an immediate ticket for the owner. It's happening often enough that bikers are trying to organise petitions and protests. I'm for the side of original mufflers. I hate noisy bikes. There are now a few places in Quebec where bikes are not allowed to go. On a different theme, the provincial police is coming down hard on criminalized motorcycle groups like the Hell's Angels and their sympathisers. Recently, a high level SQ officer and his civilian father received death threats from the Hell's Angels. A bunch of Hell's Angels and their sympathisers were in jail, awaiting trial. Somehow, things got screwed up (I'm figuring that people were bribed) and the trial took too long so these people were released. Since then, the Hell's Angels are showing up again and there are some new motorcycle groups being formed. As you can imagine, the provincial police is monitoring all suspicious activity and actively gathering as much information as possible. One Hell's Angel and 4 of his friends were intercepted by provincial police just outside of my town. They all received fines for modified mufflers. The Hell's Angel took a video of the interception and whined about the strict behaviour of the police officer. This guy was released from prison a few years ago for being an accomplice in a murder. He was given a 15 year sentence which translates to 3 years via the Canadian penal system. The Hell's Angels are planning a huge party for the 3 of August near Montreal. What is really weird is the fact that there are many people on facebook who sympathize with these criminels.
