That's all great and all but there's that old dilemma of "Good guys don't hang out with bad guys" issue with bikers. Most of them hang around enough individuals that are involved in drug dealing or other crime that when bikers are shot I don't think anybody is worried whether it was the "Less bad bikers or the bad ones" that were killed. In my and many other general publics view you're no better if you affiliate with drug dealers and the like.
My understanding is that this was a planned Coalition event but a few participants changed their rocker from their county name to "TEXAS". I don't know if that's actually the case or what club it was (I could guess) but stuff like that is bound to cause trouble.
As a side note, an article here in the Dallas alternative newspaper a few years ago reported that the Bandidos, despite their improved image (at the time) had warned other groups that about violence if they displayed a 'Texas' rocker. This threat was reinforced when they brawled with a Hells Angels group over Texas rockers. This threat then led to some Dallas area clubs, one named the Dirty Bastards, not to present themselves as state wide orgainizations.
