Victory Bike Night at Chuy's on Rosedale Highway is going strong! Every Wednesday we all get together on the party patio and share our love of motorcycle culture AND the thrill of winning a brand new $15,000 Victory Judge motorcycle from Valley Cycle & Motorsports.
By "motorcycle culture" we're talking about our love of bikes and gathering with like minded folk to share that experience.
But a couple of weeks ago, after our portion of the evening was over, a couple of yayhoos decided to mix it up over "respect" and "colors."
We know that if you're in a club, those things are important. But Victory Bike Night at Chuy's is about the bigger picture. It's about EVERYBODY that loves bikes getting together and having a good time without re-enforcing the sterotypes that the civilians have about bike culture.
Because of the dust up late that night, Chuy's now has a policy of not allowing club colors/patches to be worn at Chuy's. Chuy's has a responsibility to provide a safe place for everyone to enjoy a nice meal and a beverage. They have the right to have a dress code for entry to their establishment and 98.5 The Fox backs them up 100% on this.
The important thing to remember is that Chuy's and 98.5 The Fox WANTS you to be a part of Bike Night. We don't want you to not be a part of the best mid-week party in Bakersfield.
There's a ton of people out there that think that bikers just get together to stir sh*t up. We all know that's not true.
If nothing else, bike culture fosters family more than any other group of people do.
We're ALL part of the motorcycle family. The Bike Night family. And a family get-together experience is what we're determined to provide.
To those of you that have decided not attend because you're not allowed to wear your colors, fine, don't come. You're missing out on a good time.
But we encourage you to rethink your position. Your attendance at this event sends a message that motorcycle people can have a good time without resorting to stereotypes.
You got a beef with someone else? That's fine. Settle it somewhere else.
We're on the party patio to have fun. And we're going to have fun with or without you.
We'd much rather have fun with you.
