Disinherit Paul Jr. During an episode of “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior” (Mondays. 9 p.m. Est on Discovery Channel) Donald Trump visited Orange County Choppers. After listening to Paul Senior list of grievances of how the son had tried to destroy his business, including the fact that the fact that Junior stole the bike shop’s manager, who knew — and then divulged — every inside detail about the business, Donald Trump made him this recommendation “Don’t leave him anything. Don’t leave him ten cents…”

Currently, permits last seven days for the Spring Rally, May 14-20 and four days for Atlantic Beach’s Bike Fest, May 25-28.

    A. Congrats to John and Jill P. They’ve done a remarkable job with the museum. B. Donald Trump is a douche. I doubt Paul Sr. Will die with ten cents to his name anyway. Way to stick you nose in someone else’s family Donald.

    Donald and Paul Sr. should build a bike and call it the TT Special. The theme could be the Blame Game. When the bike is done Donald will declare Chapter 11 and stiff Sr.. Should make a great show. ..Z

    Myrtle Beach Bike Rally, in all it’s forms, has been named the new official definition of “clusterfu*k” in the dictionary. What a joke!

    Screw the Donald and Senior! Both are arrogant buttholes. If Paul senior is such a great guy why are all his sons seperated from him. Oh and by the way Paul Sr. you mourned more for your dog than your Mother…..

    Congratulations John and Jill on major accomplishment’s in our industry and making the Museum a must go to destination and great accomplishment. Anyone that has not been there surely needs to make a trip to the Museum well worth it.

    John & jill are just a class act to even bring or discuss his name up with these two blowers is a waste of time.

    Myrtle Beach has lost my business forever! If I’m not welcome on my motorcycle, I’m not welcome with my family either. There is nothing MB can do at this point to get me back into their town. I wasn’t welcome the last time I was there so I won’t be back, ever. I hope the entire motorcycle community turns its back on them. What they really wanted from us was to stay home but send our money anyway! Find another event that generates the kind of revenue the bike events did.
