4Th Annual Chuck “knuckle head” Garrett A.L.S. Benefit Good times for a great cause at the 4Th Annual Chuck “knuckle head” Garrett A.L.S. Benefit By Chris Jones Once again this year I had the honor and pleasure to be present at the Iron Order Motorcycle Club Skeleton Krew 4th Annual Chuck “Knucklehead” Garrett ALS Benefit. This year a member of the chapter’s mother, Annie Campbell, was also memorialized as she was also a victim of this awful silent killer. The Iron Order Skeleton Krew brought it all to the table putting together many things for folks to enjoy from great chicken and Boston Butt plates, to silent auctions and raffles to go along with the poker ride. Also, many folks were drawn to the massive gathering around the ball shaped fire pit that was donated to the MC by Michael Buck.(For info on Gathering Ball fire pits please call 252947-2541) Lee Cherry Entertainment once again provided some great bands that preformed (for free) for the event. ‘The Back Porch Rockers’ were first on the line up bringing smooth acoustic sounds, before that, ‘Lonnie B’ from ‘Blue Soul Redemption’ that put on a very nice solo performance. After a small break for raffles , ‘Michael Teeter’ performed the National Anthem and ‘Live Wire’ took the stage rocking it hard before ‘The Eli Craig Band’ stepped up to finish the night’s music. This event is always a good time for all, yet the true focus is to raise money for ALS research to help end this debilitating disease and this year, as I type, the Iron Order Motorcycle Club, Skeleton Krew of Washington N.C. and the supporters of this event have raised over $8,600.00 for the ALS Foundation...and they are not done! They still have t-shirts available for a $15.00 donation to Pay Pal: firstname.lastname@example.org. The IOMC Skeleton Krew also would like to thank the IOMC Locked and Loaded Krew from Martin County and all who came out to help put on this annual event. Great folks once again made the difference, Great folks Behind Bars!

Sent to us from a proud Marine mom, ‘MOM’ If you ever start feeling bad about your paycheck, I have a little exercise that you can do to lift your spirits. Pretend you have a new job for the next two weeks: dress in something extremely warm, wear it for the whole 14 days, while wearing a back pack with 80 lbs. of weights in it. Throw one of your cast iron pots on your head, just to complete the look. Now, set a clock and hold your pee and poop for say... 12 hours, then get a shovel, go outside, dig a hole, squat, and then bury it. During this 2 week stretch, restrict your diet to two meals a day, cold soup from a can, dried fruit, warm water. No tv, cable, radio, cell phone. Stay in one room of your house, unless you have to potty. And just to make it a little more realistic, have your neighbor shoot over your head while you are pooping. Then, after 2 weeks, go to your mailbox and take out your check for a whopping $570.00, this is after taxes of course. This works out to be $2.36/ hour But, of course you would want to be paid for the entire 2 weeks, plus overtime TOO BAD! But don't panic, this is not your life, just two weeks of a few things that our service members on deployment and in training experience on a daily basis. And don't worry, that pay is what our Privates are dying for, not what you are living for. Now, don't you feel a little better about your minimum wage check? And yes, I am biased, I am the Grandmom of a Marine, wife of 2 veterans both deceased, the daughter of a veteran and a Native American citizen! Ooh Rah! “A proud Marine Mom”

your Health Behind Barz
Emergencies No one likes to think about emergencies. Yet being human we need a plan in case something happens. In a drastic emergency one may not be able to communicate simple information, like who to call, allergies, medical conditions, medications taken, or even their name. It has been recommended by some organizations to carry a simple 3 x 5 card in your wallet with your name, birthdate, allergies, medications you are taking, medical conditions and emergency contact name and phone number listed. If you have an emergency, just giving the ambulance attendant the 3 x 5 card will give them valuable basic information and there is little chance of forgetting to tell them something. Just remember to check this 3 x 5 card and update it when needed or changes are made. Many cell phones now have the option to set up an emergency contact number that a first responder can call for help if you are unable to communicate. Some plans even allow you to download insurance information as well as health information to a site that is pass word protected for emergencies as well. Check with your cell phone carrier to see if these options are available to you. Most insurance companies have an 800 number to talk to a nurse to ask questions, receive information and directions as to what to do in an emergency. Check your insurance coverage to see if this is available to you. The American Red Cross has a web site http://www.redcross. org that shares ideas how to be prepared in many emergencies from floods to earthquakes, to hurricanes, to pet care in an emergency as well. Look under the disaster preparedness tab to obtain a lot of information for fah-ree. Talk to your doctor, health care professional, or social worker they may have some great ideas specific to your situationâ€Ś just in case.
Be prepared, ride safe and be blessed.

Ride for the homeless story: Lady D photos: Susan Sutton On March 14, 2015, Gospel Garage Outreach Ministry sponsored a fund raising ride for the homeless in Lenoir County. Gospel Garage wanted to do something to help the Homeless Shelter in Lenoir County and Maryâ€™s Kitchen since they have lost a part of their funding in the last year. The Gospel Garage had bikers and cagers meet at Webb Chapel United Methodist Church in Sandy Bottom, NC. Participants donated money and nonperishable food items. Many boxes of food items were collected. This day was a time for fund raising and a time for honoring one of the brothers, Mr. Timmy Parker, a member of Gospel Garage Outreach Ministry. He passed the morning of the ride and his helmet was worn by one of his brothers in remembrance of him. There was sadness missing a brother but joy to help others as he would do to show love, care, concern and ride for the help of those who need it. Live music was provided by the Deep Run Boys as well as grilled hot dogs and 50/50 drawing. Even though the sky was crying some at the loss of a brother, bikers met together with joy to help another in need. Thank you Gospel Garage Outreach Ministry for your concern and love for others. May your wheels keep spinning to fulfill the needs of those around us. Flag Day is celebrated on 14 June. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on that day in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date.

from the mind of big ed So, a decision was made. A decision that will forever haunt me, especially in the club I’m with. On many occasions I’ve helped my fellow bros out with my trailer. I decided to trailer the bike to the Smoke out. Now go back and read that part again...cause I’m not saying it on the rag no more! Yelp...I loaded the damn thing up...on a trailer...yes. I love riding! And, yes...I talked $hit back in the day about folks that want to play biker and trailer their bike besides ride them and keep it real...and yes...I’ve played dearly. I loaded it up and with a clear mind of knowing she will be safe in the truck besides riding in the heat. We left for the Smoke Out. As we got close my mind started to churn. I knew hell was just a few miles up if my bros saw the bike on the trailer. So, I pulled over and like a total wanna-be I unloaded the bike and me and her rode in. Yes...the shame was real but her safety was worth it to me.
Hello you Happy Riders!! Under no circumstances should you ever...ever...carry your dang bike on a trailer unless its in need of repair! This is like a golden rule of being a biker. I know it well and knew it most certainly but I made a decision that has forever put a blemish on my biker card. It’s a mistake but to this day I still don’t regret my actions. I made the best call but in the eyes of my brothers and sisters out there in the biker world I have failed. Now that I’m wiser this won’t happen again...that my bike never rides a trailer. Here’s my story. It is true and it is fact. A few years ago me and my Girlfriend (Colleen) went to a wedding on the beach. The weather was hot and humid like it is always here during the summer in North Carolina. As we watched Colleen’s cousin get married, Colleen out of nowhere and without warning, just passed out from the heat. Everybody close to her, including myself, grabbed her before she hit the ground. She had gone pale and seemed disoriented. We took her to a truck and cranked up the A/C to cool her off. Afterwards she made a full recovery but this startled me to see her go out without warning. The following week was the Smoke out in Rockingham. As you could guess I was concerned of her well being with her riding on the back of the bike. I asked her a number of times if she thought she would be fine and the trooper that she is said, yes and that she really looked forward to going.
All was great. No one suspected a thing...and $hit I won’t going to tell’em. Why? All they see is me and her pulling up on two wheels. Why would they need to know more right? It was just about to be totally pulled off but then one of the Sisters asked Colleen, how was the trip up here? Total devastation was to unfold after this and she didn’t know the destruction of the words she spoke out of her mouth as she said the trip was great!! We carried the bike on the trailer!!! God strike me now!!! I should have said... No excuse was good enough. No amount of safety of my concern for Colleen was good enough. I literally shat on the golden rule of being a biker. To forever live in the darkness of my ways. May the birds and all heavenly creations shat upon me for I have disgraced myself and all who came from my blood line! Its been two years and I still am dealing with the trailer situation. Like I said, it does not matter how many times I’ve loaded my bros bike up on my trailer to carry them to safety due to break downs. So never...never...ever carry you sled on a trailer. There is no excuse. Cause next time for me if she wants to go and her health is uncertain she will have to catch a ride with a sister. Cause there will be no trailering my bike again...I promise!!
Until next time... I will see you Behind Barz.

Ride for Julie On March 28th, 2015, at The American Legion in Dudley, N.C., a poker run/benefit was held for Julianne Alphin to help raise money for a much needed wheelchair lift.
Julianne was born with Cerebral Palsy and Hydrocephalus. Family and friends, spearheaded by Julianne’s Granparents, Suzie and Robbie, worked hard to pull this event off! Their efforts really paid off! A total of $4,700.00 was raised through selling BBQ and BBQ chicken plates, a 50/50 drawing, auction, and ‘best & worst hand’ in the poker run. Julianne and her family and friends want to send out a huge “Thank You” to all that supported and helped with this benefit. Behind Barz Motorcycle Magazine would like to thank everyone for inviting the crew to this event.
With the money raised, Julianne’s Mom and GreatGrandmother were able to put a sizeable down payment on this 2010 Town & Country van that was already converted for a wheelchair.
Julie with Frank, owner of Frank’s Place. We would like to thank the American Legion of Dudley, NC, and Julianne Alphin and family for allowing us to have the wonderful opportunity of being a part of her poker run/benefit “A Ride For Julie”. Juli is a fabulously possitive little lady with a wonderful outlook on life! The sun shines on her everyday! From all of us at Frank’s Place in LaGrange, N.C.
Motor Maid News They dared to be different; in the process made history
Helen Kiss Maine
story: Ellen Taylor Virginia Motor Maid
They had a dream, it wasn’t a big dream all they wanted to do is unite other women motorcyclists, so they can share their passion with other like minded women. Before they knew it, Motor Maids of America was born, the year 1941, with 51 members on the roster! The members of this club were born during a time when women were expected to be seen and not heard. These special ladies were born to change history and how the world would view women motorcyclists in the future! The journey wasn’t easy for them; it was difficult for women to go against society during a time when our world was controlled by men! Men of the time, put women in a box, they were expected to look and act a certain way! In the 30’s and 40’s it wasn’t lady-like-behavior to ride a motorcycle; a bike was a man’s machine. During that time most women wouldn’t even think about wearing pants, let alone throw their leg over a motorcycle, because they were conditioned not to do that. It wasn’t lady-like behavior! Just to give you an idea; back in the early 1930’s a young woman who had a passion for motorcycles, found it very difficult riding her bike in the long dresses. I am assuming the dresses kept getting caught in the chain of the bike. Society said she had to wear the dresses. I’m also assuming, one day she had had enough; she put on men’s pants, so she could ride her bike more easily, only to be arrested for wearing men’s pants!
Lind Dugeau riding through deep water.
Dot Robinson during the Jack Pine Endurance Race.
Another great story; One favorite story told by “Hap,” the Honda dealer in Sarasota, Fl. He tells of how he “chased that woman (Dot Robinson) for two days, through mud and trees” and never caught her. At the end of the race, all the guys tramped into the local bar, but not Dot. She went to her room and got cleaned up first. “I’ll never forget the picture: Dot wailing into the bar in a black sheath dress and a pill box hat.” Dot was always a lady. Dot set a standard for women motorcyclists. She proved you could be a lady and still ride a motorcycle!
It wasn’t until around the time of WWII (1939) that women begain wearing pants, only because the wemon were working in the factories while our boys were overseas fighting in the war. It still was not widely accepted! In 1960 the feminist movement began and the Equal Rights Amendment was passed. Since everyone was supposed to be equal it finally became acceptable for women to wear pants. The Motor Maids of America stepped out of the society mode of the time, dared to be different and made history in the process. They following their hearts and passion, as well as showing the world, that women can ride a motorcycle and still be a respected lady! The Jack Pine was a 2-day, 500 mile off-road event forcing the competitors to average 24 miles every hour, checking in at check points, fording rivers, going through sand and every other type of terrain imaginable.
Vera Griffin moving a barrel with her bike. She made it look so easy!
Pat Boatright, her face shows such determination!
So, their small dream is still going strong, 75 years later! Once known as Motor Maids of America, now known today as Motor Maids, Inc. We have over 1,200 members across the United States and Canada. We have come a long way baby, thanks to these wonderful pioneer ladies; they paved the way for women everywhere!
Honoring one of our courageous heroes Sergeant Alvin R. Wise, U.S. Army This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. 70 years ago political correctness was not known. There was very little front line media coverage, no embedded reporters. The military wasn’t restricted as to what they could or couldn’t do. They were fighting an all out war and their goal was to win. Sgt. Alvin Wise was the grandfather of ‘Cowboy’ - one of Tippetts Mills own. Born in Texas in 1921, he volunteered for the Army in 1939, at 18 years old, and served for the next five years until June 1945. He served with distinction in Africa and Europe. Sgt. Wise and his men ‘revived’ a U.S. Army tank. They got the tank up and running with Sgt. Wise manning the .50 caliber machine gun. They took out enemy snipers and their mission was a success. Sgt. Wise was awarded four of the country’s top five medals:
1939 - 1945
Distinguished Service Cross
(Two) Silver Stars
story by: “Capt. Bob”
He also received the Good Conduct Medal, WWII Victory Medal, Army occupation Medal, American Campaign Medal, EroAfrican Campaign Medal, and the Combat infantry Badge. He was also nominated for the Congressional Medal of Honor. Sgt. Wise died in June of 1987 at the age of 66. As all of the ‘greatest generation’ were, they rarely spoke of their wartime experiences. There was a large degree of patriotism in those days. Those veterans had a job to do and they did it. We should salute them and honor them for all they have done. We have our freedom because of these men, the entire world was at war. Thank you and may you rest in peace.
(Two) Purple Hearts
Friends and family have taken steps and are pursuing the status of Sgt. Wise nomination for the Medal of Honor.
great story about a great local guy helping others
I saw Butterbeanâ€™s post on Facebook and had to share! Doobie
My first request to all my friends is that you not make this post about me...it's about everyone. I don't always post when things like this happen but I felt I needed to at this point. Thursday on the way home from Blackberry Smoke concert I stopped by a 24 hour Walgreens and saw an older woman who appeared to be in distress sitting in her car with her head down. I cautiously and from a respectful distance, approached her and asked if she needed help. She said, yes please yes I do! I desperately need $5.00 to get some gas. I'm on empty and completely broke. She had been stranded there for over 2 hours and said over 30 people had walked by and not offered to help even when she asked some of them directly. She was in Raleigh, almost out of gas, and needed a few dollars to get home to Cary after caring for an elderly person who was shut in at home in Knightdale. I had very little cash so I had her follow me to Sheetz and something told me just to fill her tank up, so I did. When the meter went past five dollars she said, oh my goodness! How much are you putting in there young man? I said, I don't know maâ€™am itâ€™s not full yet. Then I gave her a food bag of food from my church that we put together to help people in need. I gave her the only money I had, seven dollars in cash, and she was almost to the point of tears and said she hadn't eaten in 2 days and was taking care of an elderly lady and then going back home to take care of her fiance with terminal cancer. This was on Thursday, she doesn't get paid until Friday and a RANDOM simple act of kindness made a world of difference for her and her fiance. She asked how to repay me and I told her the smile on her face and thank you was more than enough! Today my wife called and a migrant farm worker was stranded at the emergency room and needed a ride home after being injured when a horse fell on him. Luckily I work for myself. I was working when Sandy called so, I stopped what I was doing, locked the door and went to WakeMed to pick him up. He spoke very little English and through an interpretor and all we knew was he lives somewhere near us in eastern Wake/Franklin County and he is a migrant farm worker. Through a long series of hand gestures and smiles, nods and head shakes, no and yes, we finally made it to his friends house about 45 minutes longer than it should have taken had we known the address but we got there nonetheless. He hugged me once safely inside and in broken English said "love you my new brother". He asked to take this picture with me so he could send it to his family back in Mexico. The good people at WakeMed including my wife Sandra Bullock took care of him I continued that care and have now passed it on to others who will care for him as he recovers. I'm not asking for thanks or praise, what I'm asking for you reading this post and anyone who shares it is to go out and do the same thing, simply help someone when you can. We are all each other's keeper it could be you that needs help tomorrow, and kindness and love are one of the few things in the world that are still free! .....With love and hope for us all.....your friend in music and life....Tim "Butterbean" Bullock

Relay for Life
On March 21, 2015 Brogden United Methodist Church in Dudley, North Carolina, held their 6th annual Relay for Life Ride! This is a ride to raise money to donate for research for the cure for cancer.
Bikes lining up for the Relay For Life Ride with Aria, their mascot, in the front leading the pack!
This ride is done in the remembrance of JoAnn Hill. She was a great servant who was always there to for others with lots of love and respect for who you were. She is missed as she was a victim of cancer. Those coming to the ride agreed that there is nothing like raising money for a worthy cause, having great fun and just hanging around with other brothers and sisters. Many of the participants had friends and family that have been touched by cancer. They shared their names of loved ones and you can see the sadness that was in the speaker’s eyes as they had remembrance.
Frankye McGinnis and her husband. She puts on this event for Relay For Life!
When we go to rides not only bikers are involved but there are support people, who don’t ride, helping do the work. Here at Brogden Methodist there were people in the kitchen whipping up a hot, good breakfast for those who rode. When you signed up the smell of hot coffee, fresh eggs, grits, biscuits, and donuts….mmmmm good! These volunteer’s also had special memories of Ms. Hill and they were willing to help raise money for research for a cure. One highlight of the ride was for Ms. Aria, the unofficial mascot of the ride, she wanted to lead as they lined up to ride. She was ready on her wee Harley, with boots and a smile to take off. She was revving her engine and had the serious look of confidence she was going to ride on her face. Alas, she did not have a license to ride on the streets and she was waved to as the bikers started down Highway 117.
Loud pipes Rumbling roar Camaraderie Compassion
Door prizes were donated and they had 50/50 drawings too.
What a great day it was to Ride for a Cure!
By those who ride For those who suffer
And have survived The sorrowful CA
Aria on her bike...what a cutie!

Remember our Fallen
By: Chewy (Biker Dog)
Killed in the Beirut bombing on October 23, 1983: Name, Rank, Branch, NC Town/City
My driver and I wonder how many Americans know the meaning of Memorial Day. Some Americans confuse it with a type of Veterans Day, but many seem to view it as the start of summer vacation. Every Memorial Day weekend in which my driver and I are out and about on two wheels, we meet people who tell us “Happy” Memorial Day. My driver uses that as an opportunity to explain the reason behind Memorial Day, why it’s a day for remembrance, the fact that hundreds of thousands of men and women gave their lives for our freedom, and how Jesus gave his life for our eternal life. In the television news, we hear about remembering those who gave their lives during the War on Terror, as well as other wars in history, such as World War I, World War II, the Korea War, and the Vietnam War. But how about those who gave their lives while in service to our country and not during a large war? A few of those wars, conflicts and incidences include USS Cole, Urgent Fury (Grenada), Just Cause (Panama), Restore Hope (Mogadishu), Desert Storm, Desert Shield, the Beirut bombing, USS Cole (Yemen), Benghazi, to name a few. There are also the countless many who gave their lives while in service to our country but not in declared war zone or combat operation. My driver and I built a roster with over 7,700 men and women who gave their lives while in service to our country. We carried that roster across the USA in 2011 and 2012. We attempted in 2014, but our Harley broke down in West Virginia and Craig Hardy continued the mission of carrying the roster across the country. I’m getting close to 100,000 miles since I started riding in 2008, and most of those miles were for our Fallen, those serving now, and our veterans.
The following are a few of the North Carolinians who gave their lives while in service to our country during lesser known operations.

On Memorial Day, please spend a moment to think of our men and women who gave their lives for us. Be thankful for the freedoms they defended. These photos were taken during Memorial Day weekend at Arlington National Cemetery with Rolling Thunder NC1 in 2014. Craig Hardy, my driver, and I carried our Fallen Heroes rosters with us, and you can see the roster in the photos. For the single head stones, I either attended their funerals or I comforted the Heroâ€™s family, so these photos have a personal connection for my friends, my driver and me.

4 April 2015 Horrace and his wife, Barbara had a birthday party for their son, Jeremy. It was held at their bar, Good Tymes Club, in Rocky Mount, N.C. Many of Jeremy’s friends and family were there for the occasion, as well as, those who frequent the club. Horace cooked BBQ chicken with fixins for everyone who attended. Horace asked his son a few weeks before what he wanted for his 25th birthday. His reply was that he wanted a remote controlled car. That’s all he asked for. Horace told us that he was getting a car alright, but that it wasn’t going to be remote controlled! Horace has had the car under wraps for some time working on it in his spare time. It is a 1969 Camero and you should have seen the look on Jeremy’s face when he walked out back and saw it for the first time! What a killer birthday present! Your family and friends think a lot of you, Jeremy! We hope it was your best birthday ever!!!
Jeremy (center) with his mom and dad!
Jeremy gets a birthday hug from his dad, Horace! Check out that smile!
Got chicken? Horace had several big cookers going with yard birds!

Bar was packed inside, as well!
Friends and family started to gather early outside of Good Tymes Club awaiting the presentation of Jeremy’s ‘69 Camero!

Caws for the paws On April 4, 2015, Unspoken Sons M/C sponsored the Caws for the Paws Motorcycle Ride to raise funds for the Lenoir County SPCA to give pets a second chance at life. Door prizes, 50/50 drawing and delicious BBQ plates were sold at the end of the ride. Bikers met and lined up at the Second Chance Thrift Store in Kinston, North Carolina. One of the riders there, Ms. Jan who proudly is about 67ish, shared that this was her very first group ride with her husband. She was very proud to ride as a passenger to help the SPCA. She is a great encouragement that no matter what your age you can ride and help another in need. The employees at the Second Chance Thrift Store shared how thankful they are to Unspoken Sons M/C for their help in more ways than they can say. This was the second fund raiser motorcycle ride that they have sponsored for them. Unspoken Sons M/C not only helps with the run in fund raising but assists in many other activities to support the Lenoir County SPCA. All monies raised and pet food collected was given to the SPCA. The Lenoir County SPCA mission is devoted to finding loving homes for the homeless pets at their shelter, preventing cruelty to animals, providing education on responsible pet ownership, and encouraging humane animal control through spay & neuter initiatives. They say over 9 homeless animals come to their shelter every day needing help. The Second Chance Thrift Store helps to keep the SPCA shelter afloat by donations and sales to save and rescue animals. They have been operating for the last 5 years. You are welcome to come and explore what they have for sale. Cats and dogs need loving homes that are sheltered at the SPCA. If you desire a pet to take care of, remember your local SPCA and adopt some loving paws. With a bark, a meow, and the roar of pipes, thank you Unspoken Sons M/C for your caring and assistance. Ride safe and keep the shiny side up. USSFFUSS.

Misplaced Souls MC Polar Bear Run story by: Gypsy photo by: Moe Goldsboro, NC On February 21, 2015, the Misplaced Souls MC held their 2nd Annual Polar Bear Run. The ride is a collaboration between the MSMC and local community businesses including Spike's Tavern. The run is part of a year long drive to collect coats and monetary donations. These donations along with money from support tee shirt sales is donated to the Wayne County Boys and Girls Club and to Wayne Uplift Domestic Violence Shelter. This year's ride route was from the MSMC Clubhouse to the Stantonsburg Kickstand (hey Donna) then to Spike's Tavern (hey Scott) and back to the Clubhouse. Food and door prizes greeted the riders on their return. Watching bikers and local businesses come together to help those less fortunate in our community makes my heart smile :)

Through And Through Old Biker:
Chrome shining in the full moon light Twist the throttle and take to flight Leave the hassles of life behind Feel the wind and free your mind Lean your iron into a curve Keep her steady, do not swerve Let the feeling sooth your soul Shift the gears and let her roll The bike you’re riding is a part of you You are a man no one else can see through You like the simpler things in life You stand your ground, not afraid of strife Thank God he let you ride again To sooth your soul and feel his wind Not even your woman truly understands you Because you’re a biker through and through

Where are the boots now, they been here for 30 years, they got that worn spot on the toe from shift'n gears, and my ridin' jeans, that I have had for so long, to go ridin' without them would be just wrong. The t-shirt I like when I go to this place, that has the writin' on it from that day at the race, where we watched Springer slidin 'round in the dirt, me, and Pappy, and some new young squirt. There's the jacket, old and broke in like me, but it fits so good, and it was almost free, back in the day, when fashion wasn't the rule, ya just bought what you could afford, not trying to look cool. The wallet in the pocket, still holds what I need, and there's a chain that keeps it, from being freed, by a lowlife thief, who would steal while ya sleep, in the old days, we didn't worry bout them creeps.

The only new on me, is this helmet I wear, and since I don't like helmets, I don't really care, that it aint real fancy, or painted fancy and bright, the important part is the stickers that are right, that keep the cops happy, with nothing to do, but stop an old biker, like he was an outlaw crew. Sometimes I miss them old days, when the bike and me was young, hanging with the club, doing nothin’ but having fun, but I wouldn't trade now, for money or fame, for what I got after all these years, is simply the name, Old Biker they say, and that is fine, cause you see, out on the road, nothing matters but the bike and me.

he took a different way that day leaving the way of the pack but never the code accepted with a need of change on mind he left behind behind moving along what wind would blow this his path some winds descend to gratify some to calamity all subject to change mindful of memories gone by two wheeling along his path to those changes yet to come some as wild as the wind those more gentle as a breeze fulfilling his personal code this was his goal to have it his own way but always or the highway the way of the wind

Behind Barz Book Reviewz Bonneville Go or Bust On the Roads Less Traveled by, Zoe Cano. What an amazing woman and book! Zoe had nothing but she did have a Bonneville and her dream was to travel solo and unassisted across the lesser-known roads of the North American continent...and she did! Starting in Boston she covered more than 8,000 km in her epic journey! She happened upon so many obsticles and dangers but also many surprises and wonderful discoveries of new friends. This book is a great read and very hard to put down once you start reading it! Through her words you feel as if you are right there riding with her! On top of all her incounters and near mishaps, 2012 was the hottest year on record in the US when she made her journey! During this trek, Zoe came through Virginia and North Carolina. She gives details of local history, people and interesting things that avarage folks wouldn’t even notice! Zoe describes in detail what she took on the trip, where she stayed, who she met and all the exciting events that took place along the way. Doesn’t matter what kind of bike you ride, this book will keep your eyes glued to the pages and is a must read for all bikers! We thouroughly enjoyed from the beginning to the very end! Check out her blog: bonnevilleadventure.blogspot.com or on twitter @bijoulatina
Freedom Rider by Jade Cameron This is Jade Cameron’s first novel. Through Jade’s characters it is easy to get enveloped into them as you travel with the riding club through this book. She takes you through every emotion as you get to know the characters and feel their thoughts through her words. You get to know real and good people in the sister/brotherhood of the riding club. It’s a very exciting book and starts off with a bang! It just keeps going from there and leaves you holding on to the edge of your seat. We enjoyed the 170 page fictional read. Also, Jade has a new book, Book II of the Freedom Rider Trilogy called, Dark Riders of Oath. We are looking forward to reading that one, as well. You can purchase both of these books by going to www.trafford.com or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
