St Louis Ride For Kids 2015

Sidecars in general were a little thin on the ground this year. And only one HPS. But it did get to go to the head of the line.


Taken early. By ride time there were four more rows.

The ride is actually out of St Charles County, just West of St Louis County. As usual, St Charles County's Finest, along with The City Of O'Fallon P.D., gave us escort & blocking. The trike belongs to the Boss.


THESE are some Master Motorcyclists! It was a priviledge and a joy to watch them in action. As I was up front, right behind the R.F.K. ride leader, I had a ringside seat.


Am I getting paranoid? See the Deputy just left of center? Pointing @ me?

"See THAT guy? I've seen him on the road, seen how he drives that thing. After this, his ass is mine!". Laughing

Well, lets see.
I'm 35-40 lbs lighter than I was in my Prime.

Unfortunatetly, the lost weight was all muscles. Laughing

And I was 6'7" until I wore away about an inch of cartilage in both knees over the years (according to the most recent x-rays). Big Grin

And I don't wash the rig often enough for it to have shrunk any. Cool
[But I did wash the windshields & clean the rims for the Big Event. Good-to-go until next year! Laughing ]


Thanks!
Be Well also!
