WOW!!! What a ride, and what a day!! For all concerned parties, yes I wore my helmet!!
Although on all police escorted rides it is not required. We met at our little biker bar called Scooters. This is a great Biker bar for one reason, the front of the place is all glass, and everyone in the bar can see their own bike, and all the other hot ones that come in...
I got there at 9:30, although it was not scheduled to leave until 11:00. I hooked up with 3 other people that I ride with. We registered for the ride, got our vest pins and wrist bracelet for the event, and milled around and mingled with the other bikers. As I was admiring some bikes, the local Rock station..103.9 "The Fox", was doing a live remote, the DJ on the scene was a local celebrity MC and DJ named Roy Moore! Roy has done many 'live' remote spots from our dealership, and of course knows me well. As we were talking over some cool bikes, he asked me to go on the air live with him. Well, the G-Man certainly is not shy, so yea, I spent a few minutes bantering about how charitable and careing bikers are, what a glorious day it was, and what an awesome event this Ride was. I think I could really dig being a DJ, but my big mouth would probably be my downfall..."OOOPS"!
About 200 bikes pulled out right at 11, and we had a 60 mile ride of our own, before we hooked up with the main group of about 300 bikes at a Harley Dealership about 20 miles north of here.
We had about an hour to kill before the actual 'Main' ride started, and we were greeted by a very good cover band in the parking lot. They had this "Goth" chick as their lead singer, and let me tell you, she could bite my neck anytime! They played Bob Segar, Ted Nugent, and Jimi Hendrix perfectly, and the party was on!! We pulled out at 1:30 pm for about a 45 mile ride.
Man...5-600 bikes, a great day, good friends, your on your bike, you are not at home, you are not at work, Was I in Heaven? YES!!!!...Well, not quite yet. Heaven was upon our arrival to the park! First of all, the parking for your bikes was on a huge paved lot. That is always better than some fricken field in the middle of nowhere. Secondly, the food was to die for. Grilled hot-dogs burned to perfection, roast pig, great corn on the cob, baked beans, coleslaw, various desserts, Ice cold Bud, ( or Pepsi ), and another kick-ass band!!
They also had a female lead singer, and she was SMOKIN HOT!! She had on a skimpy halter top, she had on these tight jeans that looked like spray-paint, and she was barefoot!
You all know how G-Man likes pretty feet( Susie )....And a voice that was like a cross between Janis Joplin and Ozzy.....Anyway, she was great.
After much mingling and partying, I was home by 6:00..
My wife then informs me that she wants me to take her to a small community about 10 miles away for their annual summerfest called 'Flushing Days'...Well, what could I say? She really did not give me a lotta shit about me being gone all day, so I agreed to take her. It was very odd going somewhere with my wife ( Hahahaha ) but some things just need to be done!!
Actually, we had a very good time, One of my very best friends Dave, lives right in Downtown Flushing. I called him and asked if we could park in his driveway, and he said of course.
His wife and my wife are also good friends, and they love to entertain. So upon our arrival, they insisted on having a drink on their patio before we walked the 2 blocks to the festival. Well, it was such an awesome summer night, and the booze kept flowing, and we could hear the band from their backyard...So thats where we stayed until 12:30...
So my Saturday was filled with fun, food, music, libations, pretty girls, and a happy wife!
...What did I say yesterday?......GOD I LOVE THE SUMMER!!!!!
