Rep. Allen West (R-Florida) is a character like no other.
The black Republican is an outspoken, ex-military conservative whom Sarah Palin and Herman Cain love. He thinks that gay marriage is a pointless debate and that his colleagues across the aisle in the U.S. House are Communists.
What more can you ask for?
Well, West also has a thing for motorcycles. Riding them is a big hobby of his and it’s something he’s never hidden.
In a recent radio interview, West was asked about his plans to ride his motorcycle into the Republican National Convention at the end of August. The host also asked if someone would be allowed to ride West’s motorcycle .. just a friendly test-drive of sorts.
That’s where West draws the line.
He says touching the motorcycle is like “touching my wife.” Oh wow. I guess the Republicans can cancel that joyride they planned with West’s bike in Tampa.
I can’t be too mad at him because there are a few belongings of mine that I feel strongly about. This new little bit of information just adds to the character that is Allen West. I could see him throwing an hilarious fit if anyone came near his bike. He’s serious about that! lol…
