10th Annual Ride for Kids - Birmingham, Alabama

September 30, 2011
Well, it was another beautiful Sunday morning as the bikes rolled into Barber Motorsports Park on September 11 for the 10th Annual Ride for Kids, benefiting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. I think someone is watching over this event because it always has nice weather, well at least for the last 7 years that we’ve been going anyway. Most of the kids were already getting their faces painted as the parents were getting registered for the ride and to ride the track. The bikes that were pre-assigned to ride with the kids that come each year were already in line,…

In The Wind - Bikers Rebuilding Alabama

September 30, 2011
History-making storms ripped through the Southeast, April 27 of this year, with the hardest hit, most damage done, and the most people killed in the state of Alabama. People are still trying to rebuild their lives this many months later. With that said, you would think that any and ALL help offered would be appreciated, but that’s not the case. A group of bikers known as the “Sons of Armageddon” motorcycle club, who are a charity-based group that believe in helping their fellow man in times of need, set out for some of the hardest hit areas after the storm…

36th Annual ABATE of Kansas Labor Day Rally - Perry Lake, Kansas

September 30, 2011
It was late Friday afternoon when I headed for Perry Lake’s Paradise Point for the annual ABATE of Kansas Labor Day Rally. I looked forward to seeing my long-time friend Zick from Washington, Iowa. He had ridden down earlier in the day with his buddy Russ. Based on my arrival time, I anticipated a long line at registration. Sure enough, the line was long, but I enjoyed passing the time with the Consolvers and some other folks from the St. Joe area. I gave Zick a cellphone call and found out our campsite was along the tree line straight behind…

17th Annual Mule Run - Kearney, Missouri

September 30, 2011
On September 10, 2011, the 17th annual Mule Run was held in Kearney, Missouri. This was my first year attending, and I’m wondering why I haven’t been before! This is an awesome event full of live music, free food and beverages, give-aways, and great people! Twenty dollars to get in made this one of the cheapest parties in Missouri! The gates opened at noon, and I finally rolled in around 3 p.m. I was not one of the lucky ones who rode in on a bike, but that’s OK; you don’t have to ride in to have a great time!…

September 30, 2011
The Lake House Pub in Lee’s Summit, Missouri was the location for our eighth cover bike & cover model search of the year, which took place on Sunday, September 11, 2011. Lonnie, Donna, Stripe, Wally and I arrived early to setup our booth in the parking lot so we could catch the Chiefs’ opening game on the TVs inside the bar, which turned out to be a huge disappointment. By the way, in case you didn’t know, I’m certainly a fair weather fan, and yes, the Chiefs certainly SUCK this year! After the game, bikes started rolling in and were…
