The event season is upon us in full force. This month has
been a flurry of activity. If you're still wondering what that roaring
blur was that blew by on the highway, it was us, sorry. There was no slowing
down this month. Along with all of the motorcycle activity this month
we had a couple of our kids pass some milestones in April. Our oldest
child has officially become an "Old Fart" (by his definition)
when he passed into the realm of "Thirty-Somethings." At the
other end of the spectrum our "Baby" has entered the weird world
of texting and emotional extremism, she's a teenager now (please keep
your hands and feet inside the car, the roller coaster is departing the
station.) Seems like April was just getting started when, all of the sudden,
May is on our doorstep.
Shine in La Pine is coming up this month. This rally is a Thunder Roads
favorite and always a great time. We hope to see you there. The Rockin'
& Rollin' in the Hills Rally kicks off this month just across the
border in Tennessee. Our own Vtwin & Harleygirl will be MC'ing activities
at this rally, Buck Wild will be rocking the stage Saturday night. They
have put together the makings for a great rally, enjoy!
On a more somber note. Memorial Day is coming up at the end of the month.
While we are enjoying our three day weekend with family and friends let's
all take a moment to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to
secure the liberties we all cherish and enjoy. Our cover picture was taken
during the annual Rolling Thunder ride to DC that happens every Memorial
Day weekend. The picture is a good reminder of what is really important
