Which means they allow all bikers the freedom to express their affiliation to any group be it the local HOG Chapter, their faith, their veteran status, or any other affiliation. We will have a booth set up there and we ask you to stop by say hi and pick up a copy of the magazine, a DVD or two. We will be having a show special on the DVDs $3 each or 2 for $5 or a t-shirt.

Papillon Puppies For Sale

Hi this is a little bit different use of this blog but Joy and I have two Papillon puppies out of our last litter. They just turned 8 weeks and are very cute and playful. The one whose ears are not all the way up yet is a boy and the girls ears are already standing up. The male is available for $400 and the female for $500. These dogs come with full AKC registration and while I wasn't a small dog fan before these are like real dogs only smaller they are very intelligent and make excellent pets. If you are interested or know anyone who might be point them to this blog or give them my phone number 618-531-0432.

Hot Sweet and Sticky Dance

The evening was filled with more adult fun as we traveled back to Alton for the Piasa Gateway ABATE Chapters Hot Sweet and Sticky Mardi-Gras Style Dance. This is always a great time and I do not believe we miss this. In addition to staging fun events like this throughout the year what ABATE really does is fight the good fight for motorcycle rights. If you are not a member I urge you to please join and help these folks protect our freedom on the roads. Plus next time you see they are having an event like their upcoming TOP Gun Competition at Ted's Motorcycle World on April 24th, be sure and check it out.

Wild Bill's Wild Game Cook Off

Here is a photo showing a small portion of the crowd that attended yesterday's Wild Game Cook Off at Ted's Motorcycle World. In addition to some great food Ted's was serving up some awesome discounts. Watch our calendar for their next event

Words to Live By

Buddy Hackett said "I've had a few arguments with people, but I never carry a grudge. You know why? While you're carrying a grudge, they're out dancing."

Want to Earn Some Spare Cash

The Biking Life could use a few motivated individuals to help us sell some ads. We pay a very nice commission and can use people everywhere. If you think you have the right stuff and not everyone does contact me and maybe we can help each other grow. There is a lot of demand to run with the best and you can capitalize on that.

Sorry About the Lack of Posts Lately

Things are continuing at a whirlwind pace for my staffers and I but thought I'd take a minute today to give you some updates. We are currently working on the March issue which will feature some stories I am sure you will like. Also we are planning our next swap meet. This one will be in Springfield, IL on April 25, we have a great facility, vendors are already lining up to be there. This time we are also incorporating a bike show like you have asked for and the band Hush will be helping to keep you entertained. While there is snow on the ground right now and my bike is in the shop getting ready for the riding ahead, the season is not far off. Soon we will see the trailer queens heading for Daytona and then the Bike Nights will start again. i look forward to seeing you all on the open road and thank you for allowing us to be part of your biking life.

Huge Trade Ins

I was talking to my friend Brad Sabol from Big St Charles Harley Davidson he told me right now is a great time to buy a new Harley as they are giving huge trade ins on competitors bikes. If you have gotten your tax refund back and are wondering about where to put it then I suggest you visit Brad and set yourself up with a new scoot for the 2010 riding season.
