Our very good friend and honorary member Perry Bushong passed away on Saturday, March 4th.  There will be a memorial service and celebration of life for Perry at the Ft Worth Botanical Gardens on April 1st, 3 to 10pm.  Please RSVP Merry at rsvpforperrybushong@gmail.com if you plan on attending.


Ladies & Gentlemen:

I am coordinating a motorcycle procession for Perry Bushong's Memorial on April 1, 2017. The procession will travel from Perry's Motorcycles and Sidecars (816 South Sylvania) to the Ft Worth Botanical Gardens Theater, 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd. The distance is about 6 miles and I plan to obtain a Police escort for the procession. The schedule is attached below.

I would like to ask you to share this information with your respective members, and encourage them to participate in this procession. If they ride sidecars, please ask them to ride their rigs in the procession.  Please contact me by email at aajjr540@sbcglobal.net or my mobile number (817) 239-8166 if you plan on riding in the procession.

Thank you for helping to honor one of the true Motorcycle Masters and Friend of our passion.

Weather Update:

I have received several questions about the weather impact on this motorcycle procession next Saturday. Here's the latest information that I have. Please share this with your club members.

The weather forecast for next Saturday is "mostly cloudy, with a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms late in the day."

It is my intent to conduct the memorial procession as currently planned. Bring your rain suits just in case we get caught in the 30% part of the forecast! I rode many rides with Perry and a 30% chance of rain showers never slowed him down!

Now, IF we assemble and lightening and hail develop, then we will seek shelter and cancel....

I'll follow the weather forecasts and update as necessary.

From Mike Geng,
I spent the day gathering up pics I had of Perry and the shop. Almost every time I went, I'd snap some pics as I just loved the place, the contents, and the people--especially Merry and Perry. I am not doing this to sell pics, but to be used as a slide show. Click here for my photos.

I am sad to have lost a friend and fellow motorcycle enthusiast. Perry Bushong had a wealth of knowledge about old bikes. Perry was generous, I could always turn to him when I was stumped. He loved German motorcycles and sidecars. He ran Perry's motorcycles and Sidecars in Fort Worth Texas for many years. We were both BMW dealers who moved on to doing what we love most, old motorcycles. My condolences to Merry his wife and all his friends and family. We lost a nice man. I'm honored to have this stunning example of his work. RIP Perry.  By John from Blue Moon Cycle
