Motorcycle classics blog
« on: July 24, 2011, 01:00:00 PM »
We are looking for volunteers to write a summary of their part of the ride to be added to the blog. It will pick up at Motorcycle classics and catch up with the tour. I will put something together for the Topeka to Chicago and can fill in spots with posts here also. Can anyone down the line on team central chip in?

I am planning to review the existing blog and continue in that spirit. Thanks. Team Central Rocks!

I like my women a little big. Natural. Now, they shave this and wax that. It's not right. I love natural women. Big women. This trend in women has to go. Bulomia, anorexia. That's just wrong.

I may need to improve my computer skills. But that's a good thing.

Well, unfortunately I don't have much to write about the Chicago stint: Rainy and cold, bike ran like crap, had good beer and food at the end.

Not very exciting.

I am leaving to hook up with the Michigan crew tomorrow and will be riding aound Lake Michigan, hopefully I will have better luck and will be able to compose something for the blog..
"The problem with quotes on the Internet is that you never know if they're true" - Abraham Lincoln

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck.”

Have a good ride and I hope it goes better than our trip.
 I will always have a good story to tell though.  Pale ale, the manager mopping around us and helmets warming  in the kitchen. My brother riding through the grass in the middle of the four lane and a limo trying to run us over, good times.

Did you guys see Popwood's reply in the other thread? He details his methods. As soon as I hear from Motorcycle Classics we can get this rolling again. What I'm wanting to do is have one regional go to guy and regional riders can send him tidbits, pix, fun things, good things, unusual things, etc then they can all be assembled into the regional blog entry. Remember, we're all unique and see different things in different ways. How's that sound?

OK Jerry, I will reach out to Team Mid Atlantic and see what we can collect and get written up. In all the teams there were heroes that made it happen.

But we were boys, and boys will be boys, and so they will. To us, everything was dangerous, but what of that? Had we not been made to live forever?

Ok it appears our combined rider logs may be too large for the blog. Jerry asked for  a story of all things encountered both strange and wonderful. I'll do my best to cover our teams story. Do you guys have anything you would like to add?

I've got to admit, I thought the rider logs we wrote were great and am not sure how to edit them into a blog size report, any ideas or volunteers?
