Anyone surprised that this biker was stereotyped?

"To the family in the red SUV at Tim Horton’s today.

Yes I am a big 280 lbs guy with motorcycles and a 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’nonci 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!!!!"


  1. This story is going viral on FB. Reminds me about how we still stereotype people who do not look like us.

  2. Here are some friends of ours you may enjoy getting to know. Believe it or not, Jack and I once rode Harley s and even though we can no longer ride, we still love motorcycles.

    1. I know a lot of bikers that minister in prisons Michelle. Some of them look a lot like the guy in this photo. :)

    How much do we miss by making judgments based on the superficial?
