Seems to me that profiling is normally not prohibited with regard to affiliation with groups known to traffic in drugs, weapons, and prostitution.
I know that Washington state's definition of profiling ("when law enforcement targets an individual exhibiting characteristics of a class that an officer believes more likely than others to commit a crime") doesn't apply in this particular case, but I'm curious now - would a member of a motorcycle club be considered part of a "class of people", or does "class" have a particular legal definition that limits it to the characteristics you listed earlier (race, age, ethnicity, etcetera)?
