It was Doc Gonzo and my great pleasure to do a patchover for Ray (Wrongway) Price. In our talks with him and Beth they are our kind of people. He will be a great Brother.
He has my stamp of approval.
Love and respect. Grumpy.

Greeting to all Brothers, Supporters, Prospects, and all Vietnam Era (1959-1975) Vets who ride and miss the brotherhood that is embedded in our DNA- we're here for you.
We live our core founding principles and will not yield to whims that would compromise those beliefs.
Fall is closing in on riding time, but like all the other seasons, they each give us things to remember and appreciate the approaching riding season even more. There'll be enough time for sore butts, sunburns, and eating bugs in 2020.
Life has a way of distracting us from the road ahead, we have to make a pit stop, get problems fixed, and get back on the asphalt slabs into the wind. We never seem to get enough time in the saddle. Lol!
I wish all in our club a happy home, clear roads to roam, and a cold beer without the foam!
Love, Loyalty, Respect, Brotherhood, Forever!

Greetings Brothers and Support,
Has been a great summer with plenty of riding time. The fog has begun, so guess fall has arrived. Will try for one more good ride to Idaho soon before the wet starts.
Just replaced my primary tensioner with a manual adjuster. Kept having a hard time with neutral. Need a couple rides now to see how that works.
Best wishes to all.

Greetings Brothers, Supports, Prospects and well-wishers.

I appreciate Brother Twins words of support and encouragement.

What I don't get is several years ago, my Dad, WWII Combat Vet, was diagnosed with Stage IV, metastasized lung cancer in April. He'd smoked for years, pretty much since he was a teenager. DAV got him 100% service connected in just a couple of months. And he had malaria he'd picked up somewhere in Europe. So one was basically from his doing, malaria from the Army.

In my case I've tried every avenue I can think of and to my mind I have legitimate service connected issues, and nothing. Even flat out denied service connection. So at this point, I don't even see any use, point or positive outcome for me to keep fighting the VA. They win ... again.

As we used to say, it don't mean nothing, just a thing

Hello to all Brothers ,support and friends

I see some of you have trouble with the V.A.. Don't give up, it took me 10 years to get to 100 % .They fight you all of the way . Get a non V.A. DR. to make a report on what ever you are filling on. The V.A. takes their reports more then their own DR. I always say they F--k me up, so they can fix me up.

Happy Sunday Brothers and Sisters!

First, let me wish Skinner strength and healing through faith (and good doctors). You are in our thoughts and prayers daily!

Summer's drawing to a close and my garden, this year, was a bust... ugh! Will be doing a bunch this fall to improve the soil and plan to get the seeds started WAY earlier. Thinking I may have to ask Doc to help me build a greenhouse of sorts! Honey-do!

Doc's my hero every day, but especially the other day when he donned all kinds of clothes and a lace faceguard to go our and slay YELLOW JACKET dragons! Little bastards had set up housekeeping on our back porch and stung him a bunch of times. So I'm sure he felt great relief at getting his just revenge!

I got promoted to Chief of my section a month or so ago.. still waiting for the official stuff (and pay) to catch up.. LOL

This past week I was presented with my certificate of 20 years service with the VA. I know many have issues with the VA, but they've been good to me both as a vet and an employee, and I'm proud to have served and will continue to serve for another year or so. Then, RETIREMENT which means more opportunities to RIDE!

Looking for a trike in decent condition for low $$. Keeping my peepers open.

That's it for now!

Hello fellow Nam veterans, my name is Charles, i live in NW Florida, county line of Santa Rosa & Okalossa, just off hwy 98.
i am an honorably retired USAF member, 26 June 1972 - 31 Jan 1993. i did not serve "in country" but was trained to go. at that time the war was de-escalating, so they did not send me.
I ride an Indian and yesterday i traded in my Scout for a new Chief Dark Horse. Looking forward to learning more about the Club and hopefully meeting you someday.

Greetings Brothers, Supports, Prospects and well-wishers!!

All quiet in my AO, except a brief tangle up with a nest of ground hornets (evil little bastards) but I got the nest removed tonight. I may have looked like a Sta-Puff marshmallow ninja but I wasn't about to get stung ... again.

Other than that pretty quiet. Been toying with Singer's bike. Fuel system, battery all check out okay. Put on new fuel and air filters but that's not the problem. No spark to the plugs. So I'm thinking either voltage regulator or stator needs replacing. The good news is I saw a CB950 older than hers running well so I know once I get it going it'll be fine for her. And if she doesn't like it, guess I got another town bike.

Brothers I don't know what that hell to do with the VA. I've been to them directly, tried to go through American Legion, VFW and DAV VSOs, the State and County Veteran's Commission, hell I even wrote my Governor, Representative and a Senator. Nothing from any of them. You'd think serving 22+ years, a person could get some consideration. Guess I was wrong. As the saying goes, f' 'em, don't mean nothin'

So looking forward to next two runs. Got me some new tyres on Black Betty; so far I'm really digging them. Dunlop American Elites. Handle really well, don't track on cracks, grooves or snot snakes. Haven't had them out too much, did get about 120 miles the other day, looking to put some serious miles on 'em.

I guess that's about all from me. Hoping all are doing well and if not well, on the mend. best to all, peace out

LLRBF

Hey,
Brothers and Support. All is well in the Northwest corner. Weather has been great for riding. Love these dry days. Have a water leak-1700ft. of line through the woods. If the riding slows down I may even look for it before the rain is back. Best wishes to all.
