Yep, you guessed it COPS! For those of you not familiar with the VB bike classic its a bike week. Although not on the scale of Daytona or Sturgis they have all the usual stuff. Everybody goes to unwind and enjoy themself's carefree and unbothered. Oh no, not this year. Not only did the VBPD show up in full force so did the Va. State Police, choke point road blocks, helicopters, REDICULOUS tickets being written. And for no reason, there was no violence (MCs) or otherwise or anything else to warrant this invasion. Ive about had it up to here with with Govt. overreach. GET OFF OUR BACKS!

That used to be small, but fun, venue to go to when I lived there. I heard they cancelled it, or was going to a while back. Sounds like they should have left it cancelled.

I agree with Dan - if No money = no vendors, no vendors = no taxes and fees to the city/state. Vendors will go elsewhere.

Sorry to hear that though...

If I'm not mistaken the city started this harassment last year. The City Council decided it was more trouble than it was worth.

Economy sucks....easy revenue generator for the state.

It's happening everywhere.

Did anything happen in the past to warrant this? i.e. Laughlin type incident?

Sounds like typical VA Beach. NO cruising. Multitude of cops. No reason to go there ever in my opinion and I lived on 18th and baltic....

I thought that's where you are supposed to ride. I'm lucky enough to live in the country, rallies are the house where we stop for the evening, town is just a place to get gas when you can't find the country store.

Virginia all together has some rediculous riding rules and the state police are very ticket happy....

You and me both, but the mass idots tend to gather, or rallie around populated areas since they tend to have hotels and places to eat for the weekender types who think urban riding is going from bar to bar and parking your bike by the front door just to be seen..:laugh :):rolleyes::o:p :banana

I lived in Va Beach Va back in the eighties it sucked back then too. Cops were always harassing us, not much there anymore anyway in my opinion. Is WRV still there?
