I would like to say thanks to the old school bikers for letting the heritage die. The biker will have a poker run to raise money for someone, stop to help a fellow biker in need, wave a hand or just stop to say hi. I have been in trucking for about 12 years and have seen it die it has gone to hell. Well what brings this up is. It was to hot to work in the yard today so I got on the bike toke about 100 mile ride. Had to go get my check anyways. Well me and some of the guys where setting at the shop. We where talking about my bike and some that was in the poker run. One of the check in points was cross the road. All shapes, sizes, makes and models. Then it went to hell I think. You had this group of young riders (which was classed with the other day) on the plastic missiles come in. The had to slide the tires, ride on one wheel and do the show off think. Not the place or time to do that. In town in the poker run. It made me think on the way home that I hope the biker heritage don't go the way of the truck heritage. Like to say thanks to the old school bikers for what they have showed and taught me and others. Hope I can grow old and still ride and maybe I can help pass it on. THANKS GUYS AND GALLS

I had posted a reply here and now it is gone. In short, I had stopped and helped a road tired biker the other day. He had just come in from Pa and we were just outside of Sacramento. To cut to the chase on this. I made a new friend. He is leaving on Aug 14th for his return home. So if any of the great people on this site cross across a lone biker with his bike packed to the gils in trouble, stop. I know you all will. Take care and ride safe, Elmo50
