The bi-monthly COC&I meeting was today at VFW 8787 just north of Braker on IH35. The meeting was well attended, by several hundred bikers from all over the greater Central Texas area. Debbie and I (well, Debbie really) assisted TMRA II fund raising by selling Freedom Dogs, with or without Chili. The COC & I and TMRA II organizations are both focused on protecting the rights of motorcyclists, so whatever political persuasion you might be, if you ride a motorcycle, then these groups are working for you, and we would love to have you help us by getting involved. We write letters, send emails, and we go down to the Capital to get to know, and talk with our political representatives. It is not difficult work, but the more workers we have, less each individual needs to do. Look for information tables at your local bike nights, or come out to our next TMRA II meeting. We get to gather for dinner and a meeting at La Palapas on the west bound frontage of 290 between 183 and IH35 every third Thursday at 7 PM. Hope to see you there.
Well, flying bug season is upon us, so our New Life Riders CMA chapter decided to have a Bug Run in support of CMA’s annual Run For The Son fund raiser that 100 percent supports ministry. Hardtails Restaurant in Georgetown was nice enough to let us host the event in their parking lot, so we could get good exposure to all their regular customers, not to mention that we got to enjoy their great food. We got kind of a late start advertising this first year, so the turnout wasn’t what you would call big, but we did get a few brave souls that rode our route looking for insects to smash into. If you don’t know what a bug run is, well it is simply that we put a target sticker on your headlight (after cleaning off any existing bug guts), and you drive around hoping to have some insects crash into your headlight square on the bullseye. As your an see from the photos, no one actually got a bulls eye, but some came pretty close. Anyway, if you missed it then yo missed a good time. Enjoy!
