brothers, i am still in se asia, i got out of the house today and checked out a small shop not far from where i am. they had 4 HD bikes available for test riding. i didn't have a helmet so i couldn't ride until an expat aussie that was there filming the event for his you tube channel. i guess filming was slow, cause he offered me his helmet and away i went on the yellow street bob, hammer down, hahaha. he was filming so our colors should be on a youtube channel in a week or so in thailand. oh yeah, only in thailand anything can happen, it was 41c today, never could forget this kind of heat.

Greetings Patch Holders, Prospects, Support, and watchers.
Winter has been very kind us this year here in Weiser Idaho, shoveled snow maybe twice, no subzero temps and took a ride on New Years day 🙂
Thinking this is good news for the rest of the year.
On March 29th Vietnam Veterans Day, there will be a gathering at the Capitol in Boise ID to Honor our local Vietnam Vets, rest assured our colors will be present.
I have perhaps 4 runs planned for this year to include our Northwest regional, National, plus a trip to Crater Lake, OR. on up the Coast up to WA and Home, plus a Camp out to Sandpoint Idaho hauling my camp tailor with my bike. and anything else I can dream up with. Lol
I'll be 70 this year so getting all the riding in I can come up with.
Kawasaki Vaquero has been good to me.
Prayer for safe travels for all my Brothers this year and hope to see you all at one time or another.

Greetings to all Brothers, Supports, Prospects and Well-Wishers!!!

Just got back from a nice, albeit short vacation. Headed South for some Sun and warmer temps. We were not disappointed.

Beth got on two-wheels for a bit, I have video proof. So she's coming along on that.

Back in my own AO, rained yesterday; today was GREAT!! Might have to get some wind therapy if this weather keeps up.

Really looking forward to Spring Run; wish more could attend, but life oftentimes gets in our way.

Oh, btw, did NOT get warm fuzzies from either Charleston SC HD dealership. Called one, phone rang once and cut off; the other one had a voice mail answering machine. Really? Voice mail? Glad I wasn't broken down or needing assistance. Your experience may differ.

The weather is typical for Southern Illinois cold followed by a warm up then cold again. Lots of rain and sleet.
Finally got off my duff and got my Illinois and Florida
CCW renewed, had previously renewed my Utah license. I do wish we would get a nationwide reciprocity agreement.
Haven't worked on the bikes for weeks. Got to get them fine tuned for another riding season.
We have many wonderful things coming up this year.

Greetings to all my Brothers and Support.
Last couple weeks have been cold but clear. Great for getting yard in shape so I can ride instead of mow and pull weeds. Burn pile up and blazing just in time for next snow.
Hoping this will be the last, will probably have to trade it for rain.
Hope everyone is well and think SPRING.

Evening all. So much rain here beginning to grow gills. Harley is screamin to get out & down the highway, careful not to get cabin fever. Testing the waters of the MC world, I spent 4 years with another Vets MC, been out nearing 2 years now, missing the Brotherhood, Love & Respect. Considering this group as I'm an in country Viet Nam vet.

Brothers, Prospects and Support,
Had a bad minute today. Had to fork over 700 clams today for TIRES! UGGHH!
OK, starting over. Things here in (sunny) S.C. are STILL wet! There is something to be said for living in the Low Country, soggy!
OK, starting over. All is well here. Things are looking better all the time. Don't have to go back to the VA till May! Oil change next week and a trip to East Spring run A.O. to see about the location of different venues. Will be happy to see all that can make it. Hope all Brothers and Support are well and still kicking azz!
Bear, East Nomad

Aubbrey has screwed her knee up and may have some bad news coming her way.MRI did not look good.So onto specialist for a look see.f@$%^# shit.
Have not been on bike for so long may have to get lessons to refresh abilities.
Don't have much else to say except spring run is not to far away and we all need some wind therapy.

Singer from Beckley, WV wrote on 02/15/2019 at 8:45 pm:
Hi Guys and Gals! I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Singer, Doc Gonzo's lady and proud new Support. I'm a post Viet Nam Army medic veteran and have spent the last 20 years serving my brother and sister Veterans working at the VA, first in Denver then St. Louis and Cheyenne before coming to the Beckley VA Medical Center last February.

I hadn't ridden a bike in 35+ years when I met Doc Gonzo, who got me interested in re-learning to ride again. So that's my goal this spring.. relearn to ride while not clobbering myself in the process. 🙂

The name Singer is really short for Folk Singer. I play a 12 String Martin Custom guitar and sing mostly folk and mellow rock stuff.

Looking forward to meeting the folks on the Spring run and National ride.

Ciao for now, Brothers and Sisters

Greetings Brothers, Supports, Prospects & well wishers!

Hope everyone is having a good R.E.D. (Remember Everyone Deployed) Friday.

All's quiet here, weather is mild but not quite riding weather this week, next week isn't looking too good either. Maybe warm enough to give Betty a good bath and going over.

Hoping this finds all our Brothers well, or well on the mend, Grumpy.

Well it looks like we are going to survive the Snow Storm here in Seattle. I have made sure the battery is staying charged! I can't wait for the Spring Run. May 19th can't come quick enough. Last year was great and I'm looking forward to seeing my Brothers again!

Hey to all my Brothers and Support,
Well 12 degrees this morning should warm up to 25 so
the snow can start again. Sometimes even us Wetlanders have to deal with the Great White North.
Can hardly wait for Spring run. Should be able to see the sun by then. Stay safe warm and dry.

Patchholders, Prospects, Support and well wishers.
Been checking everything on the bikes in preparation for Spring. The trike is done, the Indian may need a taller windscreen, and I've ordered a very bright headlight for the Kawasaki. Next wash and wax.
Last post we thought we had the Yamaha pretty much done, nope, found a bad CDI so now we have to find one, has to be off a 85 700cc Virago. So back to the drawing board Two years of work and it is beginning to get frustating.
Bottom line, all my Brothers it's time to get your bikes ready to ride, spring will be here soon.
I am looking forward to seeing all of you at the National.
May everybody's health be good.

Greetings Brothers, Supports, Prospects and well wishers!!

Well yesterday was 70 degrees; today not so much; might hit 40 but doubtful.

Going on a PGR mission tomorrow for a Nam Vet Sailor. Hoping turn out for him will be good.

Everything in the AO is good to go. Did have an idiot (drunk, drugged or just stupid) take out about half the mailboxes on the street the other day. Apparently the State Police investigated. Not much of an investigation though as we were never interviewed. Oh well. Luckily I had put up about the cheapest mailbox I could find instead of the one I really wanted. Someone in our neighbourhood Facebook group posted they found the guy, so I guess State Police did some good.

Counting down days to Spring, Spring Run and National!! Hoping all who are able to attend do.

Brothers, Prospects, Supports and well wishers!

Glad to see all the recent posts, hope to see many, many more.

Greetings from the vast deep freeze! We're still thawed, heat is working fine, All is good here. Hope the same for all our Brothers.

Days are getting a bit longer, slowly but surely. Looking forward to Spring and Summer. I know our Brothers in the NW are especially ready for Summer. Hang in there Brothers, warmer days are coming!

All's good here in my AO. Still need to get Rhonda in the shop to diagnose her odd front jug noise.

That's about all for now
