|Fox Creek Leather Vest
Legendary Leather also has some nice vests but not with the breast pockets. Here is the link:
All the club requires is that the vest is of adequate quality with the required patches in the right place.

|Lil Joes 4 Pocket Vest
My Lil Joes vest arrived last Friday but the door bell was not heard by anyone and USPS went on their merry way. I had to wait all weekend to go and pick it up today. I immediately opened the box and put the vest on. Perfection. Fit and finish are perfect.
I received the Lil Joes 4 pocket vest, black lining, no collar in 3Xlarge. I am going to buy another one when I save up some money so I can have one plain and one with OGRES patches. I'm glad I held out for the four pockets. The workmanship is nonpareil.
I will show it off at the next Club meeting or I will be glad to get with you to show it to you or to help in getting one for you. It is well worth the money and the time.

If I were old enough for a bagger, this one would be very tempting. Custom Vehicle Operations Street Glide. I really like the gloss black timing, transmission, rocker and primary covers on the engine and it has the 110 cubic incher. Sweet...

It is getting worse by the day. I am even dreaming, day and night, about getting the black beast out of the garage. I have almost rode it a couple times in the last week in the deceiving weather but knew how cold it was from the patrols made at work on the bicycle. This year is the worst.
I want to build a bike from the ground up some day. I like this one.

I haven't received my Lil Joes Vest as of yet. Hopefully it will ship soon and y'all can check it out. To order, the following information is needed:
Measurement in inches around chest across nipples (Yes, Moonbush, I said nipples).
Measurement in inches around stomach across navel (belly button for those that live in Canyon County).
Rule of thumb: Large 38" - 40" XLarge 42" - 44" 2XLarge 46" - 48" 3XLarge 50" - 52".
Other rule of thumb: Order one size larger than your t-shirt size.
These vests run small. The 2XLarge was snug on me with only a t-shirt beneath.
I ordered a 3XLarge the second time. Hopefully it will be here for the charter meeting on the 1st.

|My Lil Joes Vest
So I received a vest from Lil Joes Leather week before last. It was too small. Unfortunately, I was in one of my OCD attacks where my brain shuts down or I have tunnel vision. I should have kept it to have Little Og or the V. P. try on. But I sent it back. Dumb. Sorry.
Then it turned out they did not have the vest I wanted (four pocket, no collar, black lining 3Xlarge) in stock in my size. They are also involved in moving their factory, et al, to a new location. Other vendors I called confirmed this. So I figured I would be waiting til April for my vest.
Today Mike, from Lil Joes, sent me an e-mail advising me he was going to have my vest made right away at the current factory. One of the last ones to be made before the move. I should have it by next week.
I will have it for "church" in February and all can check it out. Unless you want to order now while Mike still has some stock. Let me know and I will help. There are also some other vendors to check for stock.

I'm thinking the Club should sponsor three rides, for sure, every year. Maybe, the Spring Run would be the first weekend in June every year. An overnighter to Joseph, Oregon.
Then of course there would be the mid-summer Iron Butt ride.
Then a Fall Run on the last weekend in August. An overnighter to Challis.
Of course, these rides would only be a foundation to the plethora of rides and adventures to be enjoyed throughout the season.
