The Club is Growing!
As of July, we can now call
ourselves a big motorcycle club. We have over 41 active members and are still getting additional
guests checking us out.
Pick up rides continue and several have
netted new members just because our rides are interesting and enjoyable. We are a group of
riders who love to ride and only stop because we’ve reached our destination or are hungry. We
prefer to ride safe and within our limits. And, as a bonus, at the stops or destinations, there
is a sharing of accumulated riding knowledge that is helpful and useful. We aren’t “posers” who
only cruise up and down a highway in a straight line. We actually know how to ride and often do
long difficult rides because the challenge is what it’s all about.
If you’re a new member, don’t assume that
there’s a clique or tight group of old timers. We’re all new to the club as it was started only
two years ago and we’re all just getting to know each other.
We have very few rules…wear a
helmet and don’t bring guests under 25 years old. Other than that, we want you to enjoy the
company of other riders and participate in the club as you have interest and time.
Bob Robertson, took the pictures of the July 10th ride to Shoup. Let’s hope he
continues his amateur photography lessons. Great photos, Bob.
Guest, Wes Matson, discusses the fine art of riding fast but carefully with Ed Irwin.
If we see
Wes again, check out the chrome on his Victory!
Big Fork Ride
12 bikers turned out for the scheduled ride
to Big Fork and back. Breakfast was at the Joker’s Wild at 8:00 a.m. and although not all who
attended breakfast went on the ride, there was a lively discussion around ride courtesy. The
members agreed to a few simple courtesies:
* If you plan to turn around or veer off the
scheduled path, you need to let someone know so we don’t worry about you when you don’t show up
at the next stop.
*The last bike in the group needs to be sure
that everyone ahead is safe before passing and that the next person knows they are the last
person or “sweep” bike.
*If you have an accident, don’t be a
hero…ask for help. We’ve all been there.
We all behaved as planned on this ride and
everyone got home safely. J
