Shout out to all,
Well rain is coming like it's spring.Could not tell you all how much we have had already this year.But the ground is soaked.
Started buying stuff already for National.2 year old 20 ft trailer 2014 Ford F-150 to pull trailer,more tie down straps.Should be in a shape for this year.
Toilet in our bedroom started flushing real slow ,tried all I could think of to open it up.Pulled it up ,cabled it out several times but never helped much soooooo,New toilet today after school ,took 45 minutes to get it upstairs by myself and install it.Flushes now good bye poop.
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.
Love Loyalty Respect Brotherhood Forever

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

Good Morning All,
First I want to remind you to pay your dues before the end of January so Laam can close out the books for the year.
Second response to request for posting was good however some still need to let us hear from ya.namvetsmc.com
Third the CLUB is in great shape strong loyal members and our finances are solid thanks to all of you.We have a new Prospect ZOOT some have met others looking forward to at Spring run.
Fourth Steamer is on the mend and should be able to make National.
Fifth I do not know of any other member in bad shape just the normal aches and pains we all share.
Sixth very sad to hear our V.P. and Nancy lost their rescued pet.Dogs and cats take on a very special place in our families and it is always painful to see them leave.However we all will reunite someday and all our pains will subside.Riding in the wind forever.
I along with all looking forward to Spring the Northwest has a ride developing and East has one set in stone.
Brothers and Support you have my never ending respect and gratitude for all you.THANKS

Hello to all my Brothers and Support. All is well in the Northwest. A trace of snow and plenty of the wet stuff. Trying to get yard in shape between rain events. Not a lot of progress yet.

Replaced battery, changed oils, waiting on tires but ready for a quick getaway. Spring Spring!!!!

Hoping a great year ahead for all my Brothers and their families.

Respect to all

Greetings and Salutations to all Brothers, Supports, Prospects, and those yearning for the brotherhood we represent!
No excuses for my tardiness on the site- it's a new year with new challenges. I'm having trouble with the SSA, and may have to find work to solve it. I have an appeal in works, but time is not on my side.
Everything is on hold, my medical needs and plans have to wait for the bureaucrats.
It's been mild weather in my AO, and I welcome it.
Despite all that, life is good as long as I can stand up and have a heartbeat! Lol!
I hope all are keeping their eyes on the prize, enjoying the sunrise, and living life with no compromise!

I've been sitting here looking at this page since my last post on January 2. HOPING someone else would step up and post something, even if it's just, "I'm well and my AO is good".

Brothers Skinner, Dutch and John have put a TON of time and effort and probably some of their own money into this page; but they're only human and if they don't see anyone supporting it, I'm sure it will go away. Personally I don't want that, and I know I've been guilty of not posting as often as I should. Oh sure, I can come up with a ton of excuses why I don't post, but we all know what excuses are like.

Really Brothers, I was hoping another Brother would post something so I wouldn't have virtual back to back posts.

I'll insert a SHOUT OUT to the well wisher who posted on 1/9. Thank you ML&R to you.

Come on Brothers, let's show some love and not be just a one run a year and maybe FaceBook Holiday greetings. Yes, I'm talking to myself here as well.

If you've made it this far; a little on my AO. Doing well here, so far all the major storms have missed Beth and I. Today was 55 degrees if you can believe that, with late afternoon rain.

I was out riding the other day, like a dumb a$$ looking at this giant pot hole, Ya, I hit it. Luckily the only thing it did was further loosen up an exhaust hanger, so I'll have to fix that. Rhonda, my bumble bee, is down for awhile; there's a really loud noise coming from the area of the front jug so will have to tear that down and hope and pray it's not too expensive to fix. But it's a Harley, and we all know how that goes.

Oh, here's a question, Prez edit this out if necessary, Beth may not be able to ride for National, but she's planning on it. You know what happens with plans. So her Plan B is drive and she was wondering if it might be a good idea to tow my 2-bike trailer in case of mishap or break down. Really it would probably have room for only one bike as we'd put hers on it. Anyway, if anyone has any thought on that, we'd be glad to hear them.

Okay, so this is the longest post ever. I didn't write anything to piss anyone off; I wrote it as much to myself as anyone and to no one other than myself directly as I have much love and respect for each of my Brothers.

Till next time

Greetings Brothers and Support,
Hoping all are well in health and spirit. As for me and the wife things could'nt be better. Started pre spring trimming on bushes and trees what fun.
Looking forward to Spring Run in S.C. Fun things ahead as a big number of Bikers will be there for M.B. Bike Week ! You don't have to look to hard to find FUN, it's will be there! There will be some of the Big Five and Support Clubs there. East Prez. Grumpy task me with recon and I will be going there from time to time to gather info on events and happenings there and surrounding areas. Leo will have a very strong presence there so no wheelies and burnouts on the streets ha!! Other than that things are great and can't wait to see East Brothers and wishing West Brothers clear days and safe rides.
With Love, Loyalty and Respect, Brother Bear, East Nomad

I guess it had to happen. Winter hit Montana last night, 12" to 14". Spent the day dancin' with the snow blower. Guess the heads up is "it's headed your way". Was not a real cold storm, so that's something. Still try'n to squirrel away money for this years rides, at least the bike will be in "like new condition"..lol

Ok, ok....I am guilty. Haven't been here in awhile. No excuse. Have taken a few rides. Been chilly here in good old Chey town, so not much has been going on. Th bronchitis bug has been here and gone so hopefully everything will be better now. Waiting for Summer and the ride to get together
