    that road took me right in front of camp murel, army ranger camp.

    ya don't realize how big army amublances are till you come around a curve on a dirt road and almost hit one.


    and the award to the coolest mailbox i've seen in a while goes to

    they met me to riverside and of course it was closed

    so we rode up to jr's road kill & got a beer and something to eat

    now this guy i've known him all his life, was there when he was born

    come to think of it i've been accused of being there when he was conceived :lol3

    his dad and me used to hunt, ride horse, motorcycles etc...........

    back in 2002 we 'd gone down to atlanta raceway for harleys 100th anniversary

    it was late july early august something like that

    heres a pic of robin, mickey and wormette, damn they make a mess when they eat


    they know i'm taking that pic just for that joke :lol3

    heres worm at the concert that night



    BB9CD486-0775-409F-A494-3EBF3A41306A.jpeg


    we rode back to our house that night, me with a broke clutch cable

    doing some shifting tricks

    long hot awesome day

    the next morning they rode home

    the next saturday he had a heart attack

    he was 5 days away from turning 38

    after that i'd ride up and take her and jordan out for trips on the bike

    heres jordan, me, wormette & dad on the way to cherokee

    they took turns riding with me and the other one riding with robin in the car

    later on she was ready for her own bike, (she'd been riding some before worm died)

    so she sold the ultra and got herself a sportster

    this past summer he'd been looking for a while he found the bike in franklin and bought it back


    how cool is that
