You don’t have to be a biker to appreciate this!
Ryan from West Virginia sent these photos of his custom-painted 2006 Yamaha Warrior.
The license plate has special meaning. Ryan explains, “MLN LBE is short for ‘Molon Labe’, the response given by King Leonidas of the Spartans to the Persian king, Xerxes’, emissary at the Battle of Thermopylae (circa 480 B.C.) when the Spartans were told they could go free if they just laid down their arms. Leonidas’s response, ‘Molon labe!’, means, ‘Come and take them!’”
Ryan’s a disabled US Army veteran. He considers himself “a very patriotic person and STRONG believer in individual liberties.”
“While I’m no ‘1%er’ biker or anything like that, I do believe the independent spirit of bikers can be adequately portrayed by the Gadsden Flag and the history behind it. I have no problem letting the government know just where I stand and that if they want anything from me (particularly my guns), they’ll have to ‘come and take them’.”
