Can only work on bike at nite for couple hours and even then garage is around 90 . Getting there though, All main work is done . Now most of what is left is cosmetic. Bare bones bad-ass looking green and black springer. All for now, Be safe all. LLRB NVFFNV

Okay, I fat fingered the last post, so here's the rest

The Home AO is well under control of Sam. He's done Yeoman's work on our lawn and yard. Hell, we might not even recognise it when we get home.

Singer says Hi to all the Brothers, Supports, Prospects and well wishers, as do I.

Guess that's all for now.

GREETINGS ALL from a couple of "super spreaders" as the press is calling us at the GREATEST BIKER RALLY on the planet, 80th Sturgis Black Hills Rally.

Singer and I are GREAT, enjoying ourselves, the area and best of all time with my Brother Kenny and his old lady, immensely.

Yes, it's true, I bought a new, 2019, Indian Chieftain today. Has a whole three (3) miles on its odometer. Lots of bells and whistles, some I'll probably never use. But hey. She sure is pretty, Navy blue and dusty gold.

Great Morning to all,
it's a beautiful day in the A.O. gonna be 88 the next three day with high humidity, might have to get some 70mph windconditioning to make me feel great.
Headed to the dentist today to have a tooth yanked, went and had an echocardiogram on friday, have a small problem in the artery bringing the blood back to my heart, which explains the shortness of breath when exerting energy, a small cough, fatigue, swollen legs and feet, not sure what the next step is but will do what ever I need to live to be 100, and if possible it looks like another claim for disability from the V.A. as well as it's time to make some health changes.
that time in Vietnam sure keeps coming back to haunt us just to remind us, I don't think any other war in history has the everlasting affects on a soldier as this one does.
hey boss skinner, hope your health is improving and before long you'll be strong like ox, tuff like bull.
take care all, stay safe, luv ya all
looking forward to Beckley in a few weeks, should be fun.

Greetings and Salutations to all Patcholders, Prospects, Support, and curious souls looking for a home.
All is well with us here during this interesting time. Most of the idleness is filled with collecting Intel that may influence this AO and the broader reaches we visit or abide in.
No politics as I don't need to tell you all what's happening- but we're ready and steady come what may.
Support Stephanie (Baby Girl) and I have been sticking to the back roads getting her some seat time to practice for her DOL mandated endorsement classes this weekend. She's a natural and enjoys any time spent in the wind on HER bike! (Paid off)
My bike still needs a front tire, it's in my mechanic's shop until he gets the time. I keep the bike under 100 mph until I get the new rubber- Lol!
Because of this virus thingy, there's not much else to report except everyone on this end is feeling just capital!
Thomas Paine say's it best about the character of or club, "I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection"
We are all that and more!
I wish all good health, measured wealth, and on the patrolled highways- stealth!
Virtual hugs for all-
Brother Sling Blade NSAA

Greetings and Salutations to all
On our anniversary I went in to to see Ellen,had flowers sent to her and wanted to check them out,well got off the scooter went in and some lady who walked right by my scooter backed into Pearl.
Thought I would shit but Ellen kept me under control and we really could not find a scratch.Front brake handle and mirror were in need of adjustment but all in all Pearl was okay.
Tomorrow heading up to get part for side x side trying to get a few miles on Pearl so I can get her serviced before EAST run and Patch-in.
Felling good hope Doctors give me a release so I can
be back in school with my 400 kids.
Just seen on TV that in Missouri at Southeast Hospital they have the only 4 Doctors in Missouri that can do a new hip replacement surgery with a new device.Suppose to be the Cadillac of replacement devices.
Okay ride them iron horses like u stole it.

Hello Boss Skinner & Grumpy, Patched Members, Prospects & Support! All is well here in the hills of Southern IN. The messages I have been reading leads me to think that everyone is doing pretty good. Busy right now butchering Cornish Cross chickens. Got the leather bibs put on the fenders & gas tank of the trike. It looks really good & is protected now from gravel chips, etc. Also had it Ziebarted. I have 3 or 4 things to do to the 1988 SoftTail then it will be road-ready. I traded the Yamaha Bobber for 2 new rifles. I have a chopper being built that may be ready for the Missouri trip in September.

For anyone who has Medicare with Part B & Tricare (I think) HUMANA has a deal where you can get a partial rebate of your Part B every month in your Social Security check ($50 I think but your insurance guy can confirm the amount; also they have a $45 per quarter benefit for over-the-counter health & wellness products). There is no cost to you for this benefit. The health products benefit carries forward until you use it. They have a web page at HumanaPharmacy.com.

If anyone needs a free Service Dog, they help you train it, see the Working Dogs for Vets page on FaceBook. Training is done in Tennessee & at your home.

Just hoping the Virus goes away soon!

I will see some of you in Beckley 8/22 & others in Missouri the end of September.

Good Morning boss Skinner, patched members, fellow prospects & support, It's been awhile, so I thought I'd check in. While cruising down I-75, Thunder and I. We were passing an 18 wheeler, when I saw that smokey had some poor soul pulled over on the left shoulder of the road. Well, Ohio has a move Over Law. So I complied with the law to the best of my ability which wasn't good enough for the trooper. I now have a trial date set for next Monday. Wish me Luck.Other than that everything is fine in the Buckeye state. Anxious to see everyone in West Virginia. Till then, stay safe. Thumper Out.

sorry to hear about your encounter with smokey, I think most states have the move over slow down law now.See ya soon God willing and the creeks don't rise.

Greetings officers, Patch Holders, Support and Guests.
2020 sucks, ( in case you didn't know) No Spring Region Run, no National, Fall Region run is most likely like toast as well.
Brothers Radio and Cluch dared to get out and visit me for a few days, so appreciate getting with my Brothers. Radio went on to visit Brother Top and visit family far and wide. ( good on ya Brother)
Had a couple of non Club friends from Virgina call and were to be in Idaho Falls. So you guessed it Herky went there (750 miles rt) sadly the best so far this year.
Shooting to get up into Washington in Sept when its cooler and get some face time with our NW Brothers.
Many of us been dealing with illness and such. Continued prayers for soon healing.
Ride long ride safe.
God Bless.

Greetings boss Skinner, patched members, fellow prospects & support,
Hi everyone, I so enjoy reading every ones comments, it's enlightening to know how we all have adjusted to our current situation, life is good and God is great.
D9 and I have been doing a ton of riding this year so far, from just a little 200 mile adventure up river to a 20 mile local ride, the new CVO Limited is running great, put hi-rise bars and Vance & Hines slip-ons, had 36K on it back in March and now I'm around 8K.
looking forward to the end of August and not trying to rush summer, to meet some of the members down in Beckley, WV, I love riding down in that area, the roads are so awesome and riding through the mountains is so life lengthening, wish I had a camp there or even lived there for that matter.
I got a new member in my household, a 7 weeks old kitten, she is such a joy to have around, she reminds me of life back when I was young.
well just wanted to let all know all is great in my AO.
peace be with you all, and Doc Gonzo and who ever is headed out west at the end of this week, be safe, stay healthy, and enjoy every second of your life like it's your last.

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

Well here it is August. On the one hand this year has seemed to fly by; on the other many are praying for it to end hopeful 2021 will be much better. I too am hopeful for a better 2021, without riots, without plagues and without so much hate and discontent.

Singer and I are setting out for Sturgis. It will be her first time and it's going to be GREAT. My Brother Kenny, whom some of you met in 2018, will be there and we'll be sharing a camping space with our ladies.

After Sturgis, visiting other friends in Wyoming & Colorado, back home and the Fall combined regional. I still need to hear from a couple of Brothers if you'll be able to make it. I'm hoping you will.

Best to all, ride 'em like you stole 'em. I know I will be finally.

Patchholders, Support, Prospects and well wisher.
The last time I wrote an entry we were headed to see the great grandson race.
Here are to results a fourth and a fifth. During practice he had a nasty crash and I think he was still feeling it during the races. We had him practicing the next morning. He was doing good on his home turf.
Love and respect.
