That was the year that 16 of us rode our Harley's to NYC and the boys on Marine 1 took us out to the Statue of Liberty. It was awesome. We slept at Batt. 4 and R-1 house's.. The guys were great to us. We returned the favor when a bunch of them rode through to Sturgis.......

Brother don't ever think that you are letting your guys down because you miss a few runs, If your spending time with the little one they understand if would be different if you were just lying around at the house and not going. Embrace every min. that you get to spend with the one that has your heart more than anything in the world because before you know she will be gone off to school or getting married and leaving daddy .

Thanks for the compliment on my props.

I would love to come to Alaska; it is one of those places that I must go before I am toes up.

As for the props, flea markets are a great way to pick up locks for a cheap price.

Stay Warm Brother,
