We've had a great time racking up miles on the bikes with
minimal mummification this past month. Along with the riding, we have
enjoyed spending time with our fellow riders out on the Thunder Roads
of Alabama/Florida Panhandle. We told ourselves we had to check out the
roads for the good of the readers (our excuse to justify playing hooky.)
This seemed to work well until deadlines started looming. We had to force
ourselves to stay in the office, beating the keyboards to get the necessary
work done. Pretty days with perfect riding temperatures make it increasingly
difficult to fight the riding itch. We know you all have been feeling
Check out the Elk's Ride on April 9th. Take a great ride while helping
a good cause at the same time. April 16th is the ABATE Ride to the Capitol.
We should all make every effort to support this ride. Nothing makes the
"Powers-That-Be" take notice better than several hundred bikes
rolling through Montgomery to line up outside the Capitol building. Let's
make sure they all know we're keeping an eye on them. The Emerald Coast
Earthquake happens at the end of the month at The Boardwalk, Okaloosa
Island, FL. Emerald Coast Harley-Davidson does an outstanding job putting
on this rally. We had a great time at the last one and are looking forward
to this one. No trip to the Florida Panhandle is complete without a visit
to the Outpost in Freeport, FL. The Outpost is an "Old School Biker"
good time and our home away from home when we visit the Florida Panhandle.
We will see you there.
Check out the Calendar picture in this month's issue. We came across the
picture and had to share it. This should stir some fond memories for every
old greybeard reading this issue. Enjoy!
Thank you all for your continued support
and for patronizing the advertisers who make this "free" publication
possible. Don't forget to tell them you heard about them in Thunder Roads.
As always, thank you for joining us on this
incredible ride. Keep the shiny side up. We'll see you down the road.
