    a guy who make hair products and tequila is in the hall of fame??
    thought one would have had to done something in the motorcycle industry to be selected.
    now i wonder how low the bar is to get in?
    maybe he did their hair the year before or got them drunk

    Some crew! A lawyer who got rich by profiting off of bikers that wrecked and got suckered into singing up in advance, a real bottom feeder! Marjoe Gortner, a child evangelist star of film “Marjoe”, who studied scamming from birth. The only entry worth a damn is the long haired hippie. I fact the hippie is long overdue.

    Umm, yeah- explain to me again why bottom-feeder lawyers are in the Sturgis Hall of Fame?

    Despite their pleas otherwise, this scum has done nothing more than force insurance rates on all of us to skyrocket and foster an attitude of “It’s not my fault”, while disproportionally enriching themselves-

    Now we’re doing to honor this at Sturgis? Really? Have we really run this low on people to induct?
