It Will Get Tough
Cops & Bikers
by Ralph "Teach" Elrod

The motorcycle club life style has been wild and woolly from the beginning. I've written about some wild and sometimes violent times. I have also tried to put a light on some of the corruption and underhanded dealings by some authorities. One such law enforcement officer who had a pocket full of drugs to plant on the victim but the officer instead was shot. Is the motorcycle world targeted? Yes, in some places more than others. We are profiled, detained, and often separated from our cash, there is always a ticket. We aren't allowed to assemble in public. Some bars are closed down if they serve bikers. "It Will Get Tough" exposes some of the police abuse and our ability to have fun anyway. We must stand and fight for our constitutionally guaranteed rights, and we are.

Freedom is the balancing factor, as you will witness on every page of this novel. --K. Randall Ball

I got my nickname, Teacher or simply Teach from an old Galloping Goose named Blackman. I had taught school for five years when I joined the Barons MC in Salt Lake City in 1969, so the name is appropriate. I have never looked back, I love this life, which is much different than what most citizens envision. I am sharing what I can. This History needs to be saved and I am doing my best to share it with all who are interested.
