BIRTHDAYS FOR JUNE
Very nice 1957 Chevy at Mt Ida Show!
There were so many cars they completely filled all of the town square! And most of the side streets.
Wee made lots of new friends at Mt. Ida!
Everyone was having a good time!
Around 12 people rode to the museum at
Smackover. The museum essentially tells the story of the Smackover Oil Boom. Smackover went from 93 people to 30,000 in 30 days! Outstanding museum. They have a replica of Main Street in the 1920s in the museum
Our Vice President Sam Gregory watching a movie in the museum about Smackover
Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a window!
I have never seen a motorcycle parked in front of a psychiatrists office!
Young riders pick a destination and go Old riders pick a direction and go!
MENA CAR SHOW
The “Big One” is the Mena Car and Bike Show. This years turnout was enormous and did we luck out. Mr. J.V. Brotherton who makes Brodix Racing Heads opened his own personal museum and Took our Club members on our own personal tour. This Museum is not open to the public And did we enjoy it.!
Pre Big Dog!
This bike was built with a small block Chevy engine long before the Big Dog came out Mr. Brotherton expressed a desire to go to Barbers this Year and we invited him to come with us.
Speaking of Barbers they are now selling tickets on line so now is the time to shell out $35.00 of the best spent money you will ever spend and enjoy three days of racing-shows-air shows-wall of death-side car racing as well . Factory rides to test their new bikes are on hand as well. If you don't have a good time you must be dead and don't know it. We have reservations at an older but clean Baymont on the east side of Birmingham which is only twenty min. from the track and is on restaurant row. Let Mike know if you want to go with us as we normally caravan and tow small bikes if you want to ride but Barbers uses the People Movers from nearby Talladega and you really do not need a bike to get around Oh! I forgot to mention a great upscale swap meet as well! There is a brand new Bass Pro Shop next door that is really something to see as well!
Petit Jean Ride
Mike Thompson’s Hurricane.
A Group Ride to Camp Albert Pike
Several Club members rode to Camp Albert Pike only one week before the devastating Flash flood that killed 20 campers. This was once considered one of the prettiest parks in Arkansas.
This is where the flood waters reached 23 ff!
RIDE THE OZARKS AND SEE EUREKA SPRINGS-BOXLEY VALLEY.
PROJECT BIKE Mike wants to get to work on the project bike so bring it up at the club meeting and see who can work on what and when.
