‘Dumb as bricks’ robbers target biker meeting

March 1, 2008

My editor sent me this the other day and I couldn’t resist posting it here. I have this thing for take-no-bull Harley biker riders. In fact, there’s a gang of geriatric biker witches in The Accidental Demon Slayer and I think they’d be high-fiving these real-life Harley riders for what they did at the Southern Cross Cruiser Club in Sydney, Australia. The gist of the story is this:

Two masked, machete wielding would-be bad ass robbers burst into a bar, looking to rob and pillage. Instead, they ran straight into a monthly meeting of about 50 bikers. The angry bikers fought back with tables, chairs, pretty much anything that wasn’t bolted down. They subdued one would-be robber in the bar, and chased down the other one outside, crash-tackled him, hog tied him with electrical wire and left him for the police.

Here’s the link if you want to read more. http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/asiapcf/02/28/biker.meeting/index.html?eref=rss_topstories

So you see, while there’s room for political correctness in this world, room for rules and what we “should” do – sometimes, you need to paint outside the lines, channel your inner biker and kick some butt.

    I’m not one for reading too many books….never have been. I have to tell you, though, I am anxiously awaiting your book to be released in August! I have read some of your first chapter that you have available. I will certainly be making the time to read all about this “accidental demon slayer”.

    Haha, that sounds like something bikers would do. I’m glad those robbers got what they deserved. Thanks for the hillarious news Angie. If the biker witches are like that in your book, I look forward to reading their antics in The Accidental Demon Slayer.

  6. Angie Fox Says:

    I love bikers. The Harley riders I’ve met while researching the books have been just great. And a couple of months ago, I even met a biker witch. Just when you think you’re making things up…life imitates art.
