As bikers we will tell anyone that we ride to be free. I sometimes wonder if we all know what that means. Is it that on our motorcycles we are not caged in like those is cars, or is it something deeper in our soul? This sense of freedom goes way back for me. I say way back because I am getting to be one of the gray haired bikers. I still remember riding my 175 enduro to junior high in the early 70s. I would park at Aunt Ethel’s house two blocks from the school so as not to have to explain my mode of transportation to the pricipal. No matter what kind of day this 14 year old had, I would look forward to my ride home. Not much has changed since then only now it is riding to work instead of school. Road trips on a motorcycle are the true escence of freedom. You are one with your bike and your traveling companions. The people you meet on the road do not know your past and do not comprehend your future. You are truely living in the moment. You are only judged by what you are doing

The Ride for Fallen Police Officers was a great success. By my estimation I guess there were about 600 motorcycles that met at Timpanogos Harley in Lindon and had a great ride to the capitol. Although slow at times I do not think I stopped rolling all the way because we had a couple of hundred police blocking traffic for us. People spilled out onto the sidewalks waving as we cruised by. It was probably one of the most patriotic rides I have ever had the honor to participate. At the capitol there was a great service held recognizing the three officers who were added to the wall this year. I have a special place in my heart for this ride because my daughter is an officer with the Salt Lake Police Department. Here are a couple of pictures of the event: THANKS TO ALL WHO SERVE!

The Honda Motorcycle Blogs has listed their top 100 motorcycle blogs. It is an interesting list and I have been following the posts from some of the blogs. There is something here for everyone from picture ride essays to posts about safety and bike mechanics. Even though the name of the post is HONDA Motorcycle Blogs and I ride a HARLEY we are all bikers at heart and enjoy the company and support of all other bikers. I have never met a biker I did not like – really!
