Bikers at the Capitol


Motorcyclists from around the state converge at the Capitol today for their annual protest of the mandatory helmet law. Despite the annual event, the bikers’ cause has never gained much traction in the state Legislature.

In an unrelated note, two weeks ago hundreds of bikers jammed downtown Rochester to protest the acquittal of a former Monroe County sheriff’s deputy on manslaughter charges in the death of a local biker. The deputy was convicted of two DWI-related misdemeanors.
