Several BACA chapters joined together to have a benefit today at the Roadhouse. They had Music, Food, Games for the kids and the Dunk Tank naturally. I stopped in pretty early, listened to some music, talked to several friends, and then has the BBQ Chicken plate with all the fixin’s. I didn’t hang around late, but one event of note, was Bandido Stone Cold had a noise coming from the headlight area of his new bike (Street Glide?), and one of the BACA mechanics volunteered to take a look. As it turned out, the headlight mount did seem a bit looser than it might should be, but nothing obvious presented itself, so Stone Cold may just have to take it in to the dealer for a look see. As I was getting ready to head out, I noticed Leatherneck Spud, so I stopped to talk for a bit. If you read this Saturday afternoon, the festivities are probably still going on.
Debbie and I went to Spinners in Wells Branch Tuesday evening for dinner. They have great burgers, and Tuesday is Bike night. Had really good attendance this evening, standing room only. We got there early enough to get a seat, and we enjoyed listening to the musician. Saw lots of friends, and it might be strange, but it seemed to me that the atmosphere was even more laid back that the usual rally event we attend. Maybe it was just because we were all relaxing, and no club was responsible for getting the event to happen. Anyway it was nice and comfortable. As usual I took a few pictures. The first one is of a piece of leather mounted one of the Leatherneck MC members. I don’t know which one, but it was the first time I had seen it, and it was very nicely tooled. The second one is of Woody hugging Debbie, Woody is a very friendly guy, he even hugs me. Enjoy.
Debbie and I just got back from the COC & I State rally in Katy Texas. It was a great rally. Debbie and I decided to go down on Saturday morning, rather than head down Friday. Seems that might have been a good thing as they got a lot of rain and I think hail on Friday night. Fortunately the rest of the weekend was beautiful. As usual there were lots of activities, including but not limited to bike games, biker burnouts, mechanical bull, and lets not forget boxing for the strong man award. And don’t let me forget shopping, as there were a number of vendors selling biker stuff. I purchased an American Flag and had it sewn on, so Don will be pleased. I got photos of several of the events, but just so you know, I am not big on boxing, so you won’t find any of those here. I am sure lots of other people took pictures though, so if you look around, you will probably find some. We had a good Defender meeting, with awards and encouragement to get ready for the coming Legislative Session in January. The Ground Pounder was given away, using an elaborate method apparently devised by Gimmi Jimmi, where I was picked to pick someone who would pick someone, who… You get the idea. There must have been a dozen people that picked other people, before we actually picked the winning ticket. Anyway, I got pictures of it all. On Sunday, we had a service put on by Soldiers For Jesus, and music by JLPB (Jesus Loving Praise Band). The music was great, and the sermon was right on target. Ok, without further delay, here are the pictures;
We had out monthly TMRA II (Texas Motorcycle Rights Association) meeting Thursday evening at La Palapa. We had a good group as usual, and heard about all the recent victories and cotastrophies in the political world of motorcyclist rights. Wes led as usual, and as always did a great job of keeping us focused. Just a few pics, mostly artsy fartsy.
