That's true, but it leaves your hands to defend yourself.

Carl (bokobird) should be the leader of the pack. He is the most hard core biker in the gang, with many miles in the saddle.

If it has wheels on it you are welcome to join in the fun. Bike, trike, Honda or Harley, one speed or twenty. We may just cruise around the campground on this first run. Our theme song will be “Leader of the Pack” by the Shangri-Las. Colleen likes the Mutants from Hell name, as she says that’s who we are! And our gang slogan will be “The Bar is the Destination”
Let me just say one thing - you do NOT want to call any motorcycle gang with the word "Hell" in it and don't ask me how I know

How many miles on your MC Carl.

On my 2004 and until 2007 I only put 64,000+ on mine. The dirt ate it. Then on my 2007 for 2 months I only had 2000 on it. I should have rode more.

Unfortunately on the 2007 traveling 55 mph down the highway some idiot in a truck pulled out and broadside me. Just 130 feet later on the pavement, I survived. The idiot ran. Sheriff caught up with him the next morning 'cause my 850 pound MC pulled the license plate off his front bumper. He spent two years of a four year sentence behind bars. Hit and run in Texas is a felony if there is injury or death involved.

I'm up around 50k. Haven't been riding enough during summer months up north the last couple years, not sure why...looking to get a new one this spring actually, need something with GPS, waste too much time figuring out where I am all the time!

Bummer about the hit-n-run, that really stinks. Some people...like everyone, I had my big accident, but I was much younger so healing was easier (head-on with some old lady pulling into a cemetery no less!). Those were some headaches back then! Needed codeine to relieve the stress they were so bad. Good thing the drug co's weren't peddling all their opioids like today back then, I'd be some wicked addict!

Alrighty then. I guess it will be the Mutant Angels. But Carl you still get to be leader of the pack. And Tim and Wayne and Dennis will be the Honorary bouncers. And Barb is our scribe to make sure it all is recorded in the RVM Ancient Scrolls.

Not sure about Wayne or Dennis but Tim don't bounce no more. I do kind of jiggle some.

With Carl in the lead we will really have a time keeping up! I can only peddle fast for about 10 feet. Any more then that and there is no jiggle bounce or any such movement.

A few years back my youngest son got a rather large and fast motor cross bike. He rode it over ( he lives next door ) and ask if I wanted to take it for a spin.

After a short, fast zip across the pasture then up the hill and through the trees I quickly gave it back to him. He ask if something was wrong cause I didn't ride it long or far. I replyed that thing would go faster than I could see! Literally my eyes were watering to the point I couldn't see!
