Daily Talker: Bikers Banned From Parade

A bar popular with bikers is banned from a holiday parade in New Hampshire.

The Chop Shop Pub has participated in the Hampton Christmas Parade for the last three years, but organizers are asking the bar to stay away this time because past issues have put spectators at risk.

“One of which was a motorcyclist doing wheelies in the parade and the other incident was individuals hanging off the back of the float while driving,” said John Nyhan, the president of Experience Hampton which puts on the parade.

The Chop Shop Pub has used its float to help its Toys for Tots campaign, and believes the decision is being driven by anti-biker sentiment. The bar is now organizing its own parade in Seabrook.

Do you think parade organizers are making the right decision, or should the bikers be allowed to continue their participation?
