Greetings to Boss Skinner, Brothers, Prospects and Support
Beautiful day here in the burg. Wish I was riding but it’s coming again soon. Good news. Just heard from my daughter, my son in law is coming home today. Still a tough road ahead but he’ll be home.
Met up with RTO and D9 last Sunday had a great time met a few of their friends. Great people. Needed that time off from watching my grandchildren, love them to death but really needed that break.
I loved the Nationals , what an awesome time. Fantastic people I am so proud and honored to be a part of this club.
Looking forward to meeting more Brothers.
That’s it for now take care, God bless, be safe.

Good Morning Brothers!! Supports & Prospect!!

Not much new here in my AO. Monday rode up to Morgantown got a fluid change for the Injun. All ready for Sturgis now. Sadly this year I won't be able to get a "I Rode Mine" patch. I'll have to settle for a "I Rode Mine ... Off the Trailer". First year I've not ridden to Sturgis regardless of where I lived.

I've been looking for a new helmet to replace my outdated HJC. Was looking at a new HJC, but no one has one in stock in my size.

Stopped at an Indian dealer on the way home for visiting Lori and they had a G-Max OF77 helmet with all the bells and whistles of the HJC, PLUS, built-in wireless brake light in the back of the helmet, sun shield, full-face shield AND air vents; all for less than the cost of an HJC with fewer features.

Anyway, enough of a gratuitous plug for the G-Max helmet. LOL

Wrote Brother Spokes, told him I now know why he switched back to H-D. Seems like a lot of Indian dealers are also Polaris dealers and are way more interested in selling side-by-sides than motorcycles.

Hoping all are well or well on the mend; best to Kanddis for a full and speedy recovery.

Howdy, Boss Skinner, Regional Presidents, Patched Members and Support,

Weather is great in my AO, but unfortunately won’t be too much riding today. Will attacking the breaks on the wife’s car. After that my custom needs a chain adjustment, so with my work speed, looks like the day is full!
I see that congratulations are in order for the new NE Officers, President RTO and Sgt. at Arms Rascal. I know they will do an excellent job at their new positions and working toward our mission. Thanks guys for stepping up!
As you know I’m competing in the Orange County
Dream Chopper contest, and with all of your help I have moved up to first place. This phase of the contest ends on the 22nd of July and it starts all over again. It’s a grueling contest, but with your help we can do this. I truly appreciate all the support!
Time for me to get the hands dirty, will keep you updated.

well good luck and hope you accomplish your jobs today.

Great Morning Boss Skinner, Brothers & Support,

Thank all who voted for me and elected me as your North Eastern President. I promise to do the duties of this prestigious position as required of me, I hope to have the support of the brothers in my region as well as that of all the brother in our M.C. I've also appointed Racal to fill the position that I held as Sergeant at Arms, I fill he will do an excellent job and will make Boss Skinner and all brother proud of him.

haven't done much riding lately due to the heavy amounts of rain we've been having on the east coast, about the only thing benefiting from it is the damn grass. The temps have been close to 90's and the humidity is like being wrapped in a piece of saran wrap, one good thing, I've dropped 14 lbs since the nationals

D-9 and I are gonna head out with some friends tonight for some karaoke fun, it's been well over year since we last had fun of this sort.

well brothers until my next post, keep god in your heart and always ride safe..

Top of the morning to Boss Skinner, Regional Presidents, Patched Brothers, Prospects and our Support. Here I go again. It's 0500 I am up and ready to hit the road again. Yesterday I made it to Aberdeen WA. Not much of a ride, but I am able to visit with family. I started off with breakfast with Draco, the only Prospect we have left in the PNW that I know of. The last time I saw Draco was at the start of my journey. We both made our out of state ride together. When we finished our ride, Regional President, Radio, Draco, and myself had dinner. I guess it's only fitting that the end of my journey would be with Draco. My journey will end today when I drive down my driveway. This doesn't end the rest of the story, but I will end for today. Be safe, ride to enjoy life, and live! KILO

Well good evening Boss Skinner,Regional Presidents, Patched Brothers,Prospects,and our great Support members. It is three months since I left home to see America, and to join the Nam Vets Nomads MC in Piedmont MO. My old body is getting real tired. It seems that my front tire has just about led me home. I have had one he'll of a trip. My old and somewhat new (new parts ) green baby and I have been to 19 different states plus 5 states more than once. I have been able to visit family from my side, from my wife's side, my son in laws side, and to be able to spend time with some of my Brothers, not only at the Nationals but at their homes also. This trip has given me memories that will be with me for a lifetime. At my age that my not be very long, but oh well. One would think that our numbers are not that large, so what would one think the chances would be that you would come across a brother on a interstate hwy., going the speed of a old grandma, and holding up traffic. Well I did, and when I pulled up along side of him, I almost scared him to death. It's getting late, and I have been up since 0400. This story is not over yet, the rest of the story will come later. Ride. Safe kilo

Greetings, Boss Skinner, Regional Presidents, Patched Members, Prospects, and Supports.
let me start by saying that I love my MC.
While I was at the national meet I felt like I was with family. I felt safe and secure in the knowledge that my brothers were there to take care of me.
So I feel that it's time for me to step up and take care of my brothers.
If you need my help, give me a call, I will do everything in my power to help you.
This MC is the best thing that has ever happened to me in my life. LLRBF - NVMCFFNVMC

Greetings to all Officers, Patched members and Support.
It’s been 13 days since I left Piedmont, MO. and the NAM VETS M/C National Meeting. It was a big week for me, meeting all the members, riding out of state with the Patched members and receiving my Patch from the best military M/C ever. Now that I am a Patched member and can call y’all my Brothers things couldn’t be better. I am so looking forward to next years National and the brotherhood that I have missed so much. Thank you all so much for graciously accepting me into the Club. I will work hard to keep up the high Club standards. 👍

Top of the morning Boss Skinner, Brothers, & support

D9, Rascal & I would have made it home on the 25th but due to a failed thermostat connected to the water pump (bad design by Harley) we were lucky to make it to Gold Star Harley Davidson in Fetus Missouri and missed a torrential downpour coming through the area. I had to have a new water pump put on Lame/Andy, note to those with fans in your lowers, you will eventually have this same issue, the thermostat can't be replaced without replacing the water pump because it is connected to the water pump and it has a three hose system where as the replacement has no thermostat and a two hose system, I've got to thank Boss Skinner for throwing me a lead to ask for Nick the parts guy and coupled with my retired military I.D. got me $130.00 knocked off the bill which came to $630.00, thanks boss, I've also got to say what a awesome Harley dealership and a great mechanic, the guy did the job in an hour and a half as opposed to the typical 3 hours it normally takes, so that and construction cost us a night in Columbus Ohio but we missed all of the rain, so we pulled into our A.O. on Saturday morning at about 11:30am.

Now on a sad note, we finally buried my best buddy Wayne Krivijanski yesterday July 1, I will never forget him and will always love him as my brother, farewell my friend until we meet again.

Tomorrow is my birthday and I will be 72, damn 72, that sounds old and some days I feel every bit of 72, then others I feel 52, I pray god grants me great health and a long life full of happiness, he's been spot on up to now.

last but not least, D9 and I had a wonderful time and enjoyed every moment and every memory made at the nationals this year, we're already looking forward to the next one..

love you all, stay healthy, and ride to live..

Glad to hear all are safe and at home,don't ever remember having so many things go a miss on a run before.Hope those in recovery mend fast.
I am pleased to hear all of you saying how much you enjoyed the National meeting.We sure had some fun and ate very well I would have to agree with all on that.
Myself I want to thank all for all the help I received from the Prospects and Support.Patched Brothers stepped up and filled in when needed as always.
We have some great new Officers and I'm excited about our future.When we decided where and when we will have our next National you all will be informed.Remember all have the obligation to offer a place they know will accommodate our CLUB needs.We always have to make it late in June so our northern Brothers can make the run.
I just got home from SRO school so I have a lot of stuff to catch up on.Fix mower pack bearings on trailer and get oil change.
Kanndis is not doing well at basic,covid hit her group and she has a 101.3 temp and ankle is fucked up also.MRI in the future and she may be sent home.When shit hits it really hits.Hope to hear more from her soon and hope they take good care of her.

Good evening Boss Skinner, "my Patched Brothers, any Prospects that may be at large, and our fantastic Support crew!
Well I guess I need to finish this part of the rest of the story, as Paul Harvey would say. It starts with a phone call at 09:30. It was what Herky and I was waiting for ( your bike is ready ). The old boy that helped us out came and picked us up, and drove me to the shop. Thank God for people like him or I would still be setting in Maxwell MO. Herky and I were chomping at the bit to try and catch Radio, & Clutch. So much for wishing. I think we made it to Saint Jo. Before we stopped. Herky ordered enough Chinese food to feed a whole MC club. Then all he did was argue with me about who got the king size bed. Being a good prospect I let him have it. The next morning I woke up around 0500. I woke Herky and said let's hit it. He opened one eye and said we can't because he has no head light. We piddled around until day light, then went down and had breakfast. It was then I was told that his head light was ok. We finally got going and were the last ones to make it to the national. The truth be known I don't think I could done any better for someone to stay with me than Herky. THANK YOU. OK we know what happened at national, so I will end this episode of the rest of the story, until I get some more time. It sounds like most everyone has made it home OK. So ride safe brothers. Kilo

Had a great time at the Nationals. Finally got to put some faces with the posts I read, and just want to say what an awesome group of brothers, I am so proud to be a part of. Boss and Ellen awesome job. Really beautiful place, good food. I want to thank the patched members ( at the time ) for not being to hard on the prospects. Hahaha. Had two great roommates, Grump and Thumper love you brothers. I just wish I had more to time to really talk more to everyone. Really enjoyed the Vietnam Memorial. Looking forward to getting together again. That’s all for now, ride safe, ride often. NVFFNV

Morning everyone! Finally home with a good nights sleep. Trip home from National was fairly calm with only about 90 miles of rain, then off to Wisconsin for the grandkids graduation. Busy weekend with lots of activities.
Glad to hear everyone is finally home safe.
National was amazing and I enjoyed every minute. Thank you all for excepting me into the club. It was a pleasure meeting everyone and I am proud to call all of you my brother. I want to give a special thanks to Boss Skinner, Steamer, Dutch, BD, RTO, Doc Gonzo, Thumper, JC and finally my fellow prospect Rascal that rode on my “initiation ride to Arkansas.
I will try to keep you informed on what’s going on in my AO, and will be looking for new prospects.
Thanks again for the acceptance into the club, you all were incredible!

SPECTIAL THANKS to President Skinner, and Ironbutt for putting on another GREAT NATIONAL RUN; thanks also to everyone who lent a hand with setup, cooking and tear down.

Best wishes for quick healing and inexpensive repairs to our two Brothers who did not remain an upright riding position.

Brother Hands, really hope to see you at next year's National, I'm sure you'll have plenty of great stories to regale us with. Best of luck on your documentary. Sounds GREAT!!

Well Hell's Bells Toppy.

Expected to be home today. Not happening. Tomorrow (Monday) isn't looking good either.

We stopped for a tasty lunch as I was feeling a bit peckish and figured Singer was about ready for a nic fix. Had lunch, back on the road. Well almost. I'm leading and Singer is way back on the on-ramp. Well damn, she's STOPPED on the on-ramp. I walk back to find the coach is totally dead in the water. Genny running so that's cool; lights working, also cool; but won't run or even start. What's weird is that all the dash lights come on appropriately, when I turn the key to "start" I call see the amp drain from the starter, but it won't engage. Connections are all good as are the batteries.

Anyway, got towed to a local big truck/RV repair shop but they're not open till Monday. So fingers crossed, it's something stupid simple. But everwhat it is beats me.

Oh icing in this cake was there were NO local motel rooms. Something about a big race here in town this weekend and Olympic try-outs up in St Louis. We did finally find a room about 20 miles from the coach, but at least we found one. Singer was not amused about a prospect of staying in a parking lot without a water connection (no water = no toilet = HUGE problem) for the weekend and winding up in a motel anyway.

It's all good Brothers! We're safe, dry (well I did get wet today riding back from the coach to get a couple of things and check to see if it would miraculously start again, it didn't.

As I said, I hope it's something stupid simple that'll take two seconds to repair and get us going again.

I hope I didn't wear anyone's eyeballs out reading this.

Best to all ML&R LLRBF

Greetings, Boss Skinner, Regional Presidents, Patched Members, Prospects, and Supports.
Well I finally made it home, the wind and the rain got the best of me and I had to stop in Indiana for the night.
I had a fantastic time at Nationals. The new prospects made a great addition to our ranks. And I can truly say we are, A Band of Brothers.
The week went so fast and was so much fun, I just can't wait for next year.
Sending prayers for Grumpy and Zoot to make a full recovery.
Also praying that all our brothers to make it home safe.
Till we meet again, keep it upright and between the ditches.
This is THUMPER saying, I'm over, but Never Out.
