Save the Clubhouse….at the MOB… by Miserable George

Well, Sat. ,April 6th. was a busy day for this old boy…we covered the Law Ride, and right after that, we boogied down to Melbourne to check out an event that the MOB had organized to “Save the Clubhouse”. Not sure what THAT means, but, there was a nice crowd there to participate. Live music…(never got the name of the band), food, drink…the works. Oh yeah, lots of gorgeous ladies too.

There will be another event coming up soon, with Biker Games….watch for that one…always exciting!

Oh, by the way, Sandra promised me Chicken ‘N Dumplings at the next event…!! Beautiful weather this time out too…hope it sticks around for awhile.

I thank the MOB for their hospitality.

Hey, thank a Vet, stand up for your country, and, we’ll see ya next time…

LAW RIDE…2019 by Miserable George

Saturday, April 6th., dawned bright and clear, for the running of the celebrated 17th. annual Brevard County Sheriff’s LAW RIDE!! I got out there to the starting point-the Law Museum, on SR 405- at around 9:15AM, and the place was already a sea of activity. Bikes were lining up, vendors were already doing business, a DJ was cranking out tunes, tickets were being sold for a brand new rifle, and, in short…folks were getting ready for a day of riding.

Event organizer and manager, Sgt. Alan Rainey, received an award for all his efforts through the years, in making this event the popular one that it has become…in the area of 600 riders!!! It was also announced that 30 year veteran Motor Deputy, Sgt. Scott Behringer would be retiring soon. He also announced the rules concerning the running in the Law Ride…rules designed to keep everyone safe on the road.

Then…they were off!! I had left a bit before the column, to my photo spot just east of the 405 draw bridge…joining the LONG column, just after the last bike had passed. We ran east to SR 3, turned north, and entered Kennedy Space Center, where we circled the VAB, and proceeded north where we entered the actual Shuttle Runway…proceeded south on the runway to SR 3, and on down to SR 405 and west, back to the Law Museum for a meal.

As always, a fabulous day, and a very interesting, and smooth  run, thanks to the efforts of the Brevard and Osceola County Deputies.

Hope to see everyone next year…ride safe, remember our Vets, and, stand up for your country…!!

TANNER JAM…2019 by Miserable George

I really don’t know what we can show you here that hasn’t already been posted somewhere else, BUT, we’ll try. Tanner Jam-2019 was a rousing success…biggest crowd ever for this, #6 event. As of this writing, over $13K has been collected, with funds still coming in…! Just goes to show you what people can do when money is needed to fight a disease like cystic fibrosis…! There were 5 or 6 bands playing all day and night, there were games, auctions, poker run, 50/50, a lemonade stand, food, drink, babes, and, massive amounts of Brotherhood. Tanner himself really enjoyed the ride in Wild Bill’s 1950 Buick. Hey, I would have liked a ride too…ya well, maybe next time…!!! The parking lot was overflowing with motorcycles, carefully parked there by a beautiful attendant, while 4-wheelers jammed up the frontal area of H&D Roadhouse.  Also, some lucky person won a CRUISE!!! Folks, it was a fabulous day all around, with perfect weather.God Bless all the MANY people who put this event together, and my thanks to all the gorgeous ladies who posed for our lens. Ride safe…thank a vet, and, stand up for your country…

Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Chopper Show…Bike Week…2019 by Miserable George

Ya know, I’m not even sure just how many years the fabulous Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Chopper Show has been going on during Bike Week and Biketoberfest, but,

it gets bigger and better every year!!

Plenty of parking space, food and drink vendors, babes, and of course, some of the craziest hand made choppers you’ll ever come across.

Roadside Marty kept the ball rolling all day as only HE can. Ace builder, Dave Perewitz was there too, plus, I did run into a top female racer, Brittney Olsen, in her signature red skirt and golden slippers!!!  Big Rick and the Troublemakers were wailing out back…good show, Rick.

The group of Veterans was back to enjoy the show…God bless ‘em. I had company with me this year…Tonya…one of our cover girls. It was her first trip to Bike Week, and, she loved it!! I think the pictures can tell the story a lot better than I can, so…enjoy…!!!

ValGal has some stuff coming up too…Ride safe…

Wednesday at Bike Week is always our day to visit

a Bike Week tradition…the Cabbage Patch…

With Cole Slaw Wrestling, the Budweiser Clydsdales, the gorgeous “beer girls”, food of every conceivable type, plus vendors selling just about anything you could imagine, and a campgrounds near-by…I mean, this was IT!!!

Folks, this is a corner of Bike Week you wanna get acquainted with ASAP!! Go to SR 415 & Pioneer Trail in Samsula…easy to find…that’s where it’s happening!!!

Maybe we’ll see ya there next time…

A Patch Burning at the Mother Chapter by Miserable George

The Bike Week gathering at WMC, Lockhart, is usually a fun time, however,

this year, it was a somber day of remembering…

remembering that is, of five Brothers who had passed on to the Freebird Chapter.

Among them was Grub Freeland, founding father of the Warlocks Motorcycle Club. Grub was a Navy Vet who served on the Aircraft Carrier, U.S.S. Shangri-La, as well as duty in Vietnam. He, truly, will never be forgotten.

It was a huge crowd who came to remember the Brothers who had passed, and, during the service, a toast was drunk to honor them all. The fire was lit, and during the burning, as in most burnings, certain figures emerged from the flames…I wonder if anyone else saw them, as I did…?

Thanks to all who made this day one that we’ll always remember. GRUB, and all the Freebird Bros…Rest in Peace…
