May Day, May Day! This will be one of the busiest weekends for bikers this spring because there is so much going on, that it would be impossible for you to run out of things to do. So get your bike ready, count your dollars, and get ready for some FUN! I will see you all in Amsterdam tomorrow at the 69ers MC party. And, by the way, if you haven’t already, go out and grab yourself a copy of Hell on Wheels, An Illustrated History of Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs, by Bill Hayes, a brand new book, just released, which includes some great pics of our very own local club members. You can find it in local book stores or online at amazon or Barnes and Noble! Ride Safe!
