OMC Very Special Valentines Day Meeting with Spouses Report

Mrs. B's New Ride

The annual OMC Valentines Day Blowout began at the appointed hour and place. 

Members present: Duke, G-Man, Grim, Rip City, Gundy and Bomber.  Emeritus member present: Smooth.  Spouses present: Pam, Sherry, Jeannelle, Stephanie, Joy and Brenda. 

Special guest:  Stella

Members absent: Krome and Slick.  

Grim had such a great time that he only took one photograph. Grim feels bad about this omission as Bomber and Mrs. B. created such a beautiful and enjoyable dining experience for the attending OMC Members and Spouses. 

The table was done in a wonderful Valentines Day motif including balloons hanging from the ceiling, chocolate candy strewn on the table and a great dessert.  Caesar salad, barbecue ribs, baked potatoes, fruit and veggie trays and a lovely artichoke dip were laid out ready for OMC enjoyment.

I knew Mrs. B had great courage but it was confirmed when she allowed Rip City to drive her '57.  Wow.

It was a much nicer evening than we have had previously at a restaurant. It was a lot more open and fun for socializing, checking out gas pumps in dining rooms and generally being celebratory.

Many, many thanks for Mr's B. and Bomber for stepping up to the plate after Grim struck out when trying to find a restaurant for this event.  They definitely turned an ugly ducking into a beautiful swan.

The bash will be at Bomber's home and will be semi-catered.

It is important that all members let Grim know immediately if they are attending with their spouses or not attending.  Grim needs a head count to make sure the appropriate amount of food and drink are procured.

Thanks for your quick and timely responses.

Rebirth and Re-Energized

Grim V

Saturday night I took Elvis, the "King", out for what I had planned to be a short "shake down" spin. It turned out to be a three hour return to my roots.

As I rode, I felt like I had gone back 10 years in time. I had to look around my immediate area to make sure I was not on my black FatBoy. This Road King Special is so much more agile, quick handling and light compared to my Road Glide and Street Glide. Someone at Harley-Davidson was thinking straight when they released this in 2018.

The new frame and fork design and geometry are really an improvement along with the 114 cubic inch engine. Wow! My motorcycle self is re-energized and I can't wait for warmer weather.

I came home two times and just rode on by past my house for a longer ride. I finally made myself stop on the third pass with much regret.

Now to change out the very ugly air cleaner and exhaust system along with a new tuner. Vance and Hines Raider 450s, Vance and Hines Power Dual header, HD extreme flow air intake and HD street tuner with the Pro auto tuner.

Can't wait...
