Default Stuffed Animals strapped to Hogs

Can somebody please tell me what the deal is with strapping stuffed animals to the back of motorcycles? And does anyone out there know how this obscure tradition began?

Other than an organized toy run I have never seen it, maybe it's a good luck thing like a bell.

I never seen a stuffed animal on one, but I seen a Pug riding on the back of one last week. He had a crate strapped to the back seat. He is their mascot. His name is Buster.

pic of a pug:

I think it started when Starbucks started popping up. Some guys didn't want to intimidate the locals and they needed something to start a conversation while sipping their espreso's out in front of the store.

Don't worry about it John, you can keep yours on your bike .

I don't see much of that here... except maybe a couple around Christmas time. Why should I care if someone wants to strap a teddybear to their bike? Maybe there's some sentimental significance... maybe that rider just lost a kid, and strapping one of the child's toys to the bike helps. Maybe not, but who knows?

"Sissys from BACA"?

I know that everyone has their own opinion, but BACA members have my respect for the work they are doingin an effort tosupport and protect abused children.

They are one of the few organized groups that I know of that do more than talk about the problem of child abuse, and actually take a stand and become involved when asked by various 'alphabet agencies'.

They have a lot of friends in the motorcycle community, and many of us have ridden with them in a support mode.
