There is, of course , some validity in this thinking. It is the same kin d of thin king that mad e CONFIDENTIAL magazine apr 0 fi tab 1 e business. and keeps the tabloids in our larger cities in bus in e s s. The fact that the HeU 's Angels constitute only a fraction of 1% of the motor cycling public is ir relevent . An analogy might be made to a minister who shoots his wife. He would be front page news, while the tents of thousands of Godfearing ministers are never mentioned in the press. It is true that I was invited to attend your show wben you interviewed Bob Grant on the Hell's Angels, but Ihe way the show was handled was completely without direction as far as I saw it. I cut a fine Sunday afternoon ride short so that I could appear , thinking that ...I would have a chance to represent the other side of the coin to you r audience .!... was told to join a large group of people and applaud when yo u rode in in your "Hell's Angels " garb. I was under the impression that I would be invited to participate in some form of panel discussion. As the show progressed, and Mr. Grant defended the Angels. I began to reali ze th at this was not going to take place and that if I wanted to speak for the motorcycling public , I 'd better hurry UP and do it . About th at time it was announced that this was the en d of this segment of you r show, and the re would be a bri ef intermission . I introduced my s elf to members of your staff and as ked why I ha dn 't been give n an oppo rtu nity to speak, and they said that that was what the question period was all about and that I should hav e spoken up at that time. It appeared to me that they were arbitrarily selecting people at random from the audience. with no effort at all to have any of the industry 's spokesmen in the group speak. One lady in the audien ce asked why the Hell's Ang els s eemed to be thriving and growing. The answer is very sil1lPle: they thrive on the notoriety that s ho ws like yours and Walter Cronkite' s, and "Run For Your Life's " recent epis ode giv e th em.

With millions of people now accepting sportcycling as a Part of their llves , s urely an interesting story co uld be told about whe re they do, what they do, what it is about moto rcycling that captures their fancy, why people spend hundreds of dollars to buy these bikes , and the many face ts of competition involved in motorcycling: Le. , hill climbs, scrambles, hare 'n hounds , roa d races , flat track races , etc .

After looking over the issues that I have received so far I notice that there are hardly any photo's of fuU-dress machines in the papers. Being a road rider primarily I would like to see at least ~ of a page out of 16 pages devoted to us road riders even though we may be in the minority group. You ha ve a fine paper and the articles are very interesting but when almost every bike yo u look at is either stripped or of the racing type i t sort of gets to yo u afte r a while if you hap pen to be the type th at likes to see a full-d ress machine whatever th e bran d so how abo u t th rowing a few bones ou r way occasionally .
