The idea to start a motorcycle club has been germinating in my mind for about two years. Although I have been riding my Harley for about 9 years, the last two years have found me off the bike due to work and family constraints. I have missed the companionship of like minded "tar heads".
I began drawing possible back patch designs while in different training classes at work. The training is mostly boring and repetitious. Once my mind worked out the theme and such, I went through about five transmogrifications before coming up with the final patch. I did not want the three piece outlaw type of back patch but one that pulled all the information and rockers into one piece.
I partnered with a close friend and partner in this crime to have the patches created. He and one other long time friend and rider comprise the three Charter members. We drew straws and I pulled the shortest one electing me to be the president of the club.
This blog will be my ramblings, some history, philosophy and other nonsense. A club website for news, pictures gallery, ride calendar and such will follow soon.
This erstwhile club is mostly to get a bunch of people together every month for "church" and to motivate/promulgate rides and networks for many sundry activities.
Oh, there will be an Iron Butt ride every summer solstice for sure.
Most of all, I want to spend more time on my Fat Boy Lo, with a bunch of fun folks, instead of spending so much time at work.
Yeah, I want to have fun with it. Lotsa fun. Almost feeling guilty because it is so much fun. Because if I am Serious and you are Roebuck, who is minding the store...?
