The time rolls around every spring when you just have to get out and ride. This year come early, but are we rushing it.  With the warm wether coming so soon this year there are alot of bikes already on the road. Which I love to see.  

     Being the nature of this website it should not be necessary to give the reminder of being safe on the motorcycles, but I'm going to do it anyway. Just remember every year four wheeled motorist seem to forget that us two wheeled enthusiasts are out on the roads aswell. Just be safe.

      Anyway back to where I was.  It has come to my attention that good ol' mother nature is playing her games again.  Blessing us with a fair amount of unusually warm weather,  and a light winter. Thus making the riding season great already.  Now that we are almost into May there are freeze warnings. Really? Seriously Really?

     I cant seem to get off the bike, rain or shine,  cold or hot, solo or not.  I'm a biker,  I ride alot. In the last three years I average right around 17,000 miles per year. Quite abit compared to most calling themself bikers. Honestly its a lil dissapointing in my eyes, personally I really wish I had a few more clicks on the odometer.   

     Well between my urge to ride and the sudden drop in tempature I have aquired biker fever. No I'm not talking that I must ride all the time, I've had that for a long time.  I'm talking I got a tempature.  It started with the normal spring like cold, then that urge.  I must ride, I pushed it too far, cold weather and lack of gear I could feel myself getting sicker by the mile. Now here I sit sick as a dog on the couch. Too weak to ride,  but it is my own falt. No worries tho I'll be back soon to conquer the elements for I am NO FAIR WEATHER RIDER.

     Did I learn me a lesson from this? Yes I did. Should the bike be put up on fridged days? Absoulty not! Just a lil more gear is all I need. Throw another layer on under the leather, long johns, maybe a sweatshirt. Hell I'm not opposed to strapping the full face helmet on to keep the wind off. Now everyone gear up, get on the bike no matter the weather.  We will see each other on ther road.

     A great man once told me;

  "Harley riders are a dime a dozen. Real bikers are hard to find!!

The deal with the no cuts and colors and patches does not pertain to Lafayette it's hooters in the southern regions down around Texas where all the shooting happened I talked to the general manager and he said Thursday night bike nights are still on colors cuts and patches welcome

Thoughts from yer ol’ Buddy Scotty… ( A.K.A. The Rev. Dr. S.A. Schnarr )


Today’s lesson:  Passion


There is one predominant reason I see a lot of couples get together, and a lot of couples split up.  At it’s simplest, I would say that reason is passion.  Yep, you read right.  People split up because of passion.  Think about it, passion is a two-edged sword, isn’t it?  People love with passion.  They have, let’s say, intimate marital (or extra-marital) relations…


Makin' it better for the next guy??

Here’s food for thought…..


     A friend recently mentioned that the people, (more specifically the taxpayer), of today needs to step up and fight taxes they think are unfair, and support those that will help “the next guy”, or future generations, I.E. : Infrastructure, better roads, bridges, utilities, parks, schools….


     That all sounds well and good, on the surface, doesn’t it?  Sure it does.  Till you figure out what they are REALLY looking for…. And it…
