Tell us a little about you now.
well I landed here in Mo. after living all over Okla. and Tex. worked off-shore for a few years ,then did some contract work in Saudi in !991-92 for DoD. 1993 came around and I went to Somalia for 13 months.that kind of reminded me of my mortality; so since 1995 I've been with the BNSF railroad and spent my time rasing my kid s instead of hell!!
Mike, do you remember me from good old Bamberg? Dale Cogdell. I still have a picture of you passed-out with a bottle on your chest! How did we live through all the crazy stuff? Send me a line. I saw John Morrisette before I moved to Knoxville, Tn.
Dang, Mike. Lookin' at those Bikes makes me drool, but I remember the reconstructive surgery very well. NO THANKS ! I mentioned being a Teamster, and I remember, too often, the Coroner picking up pieces of bikers splattered along the highway ! Back in '66, in my first year of College, some dumb old bitch pullet her old Ford Station Wagon out of a driveway, right in front of me. Tried to go head first right through her passenger door ! Had the bike repaired, and SOLD IT ! Don't feel safe lessen' I have 18 wheels under me ! Once again, thanks for being my AMIGO ! ( that's IRISH, like me Mum taught me. )
Hey Mike, I love the side car, how does it ride? Had to put the project bike on hold due to my wifes illness, but it will be built. Got to get it ready before John Boyd retires, so we can have a gatherin, you are invited. We are a coupla yrs older, but its all good. RC
