The NTNOA's February Meeting
was Sunday, 24 February, at 2:00PM
at Pappas Bar-B-Q
2231 W Northwest Hwy, Dallas
Once again the club was blessed with
the best weather in days. As a result there was an eclectic
assortment of motorcycles and even a yellow Gallardo Spyder
Our VP, Chris Parry rode
up on his less than day old ABS equipped Triumph Tiger. Tony Lewis,
owner of EuroSport Cycle
and one of our club's sponsors put together a sweet package for
Chris. The oldest bike there was a Harley-Davidson Pan Head,
actually a '59 high compression pan head engine in a '52 hardtail
frame. There were more vintage Triumphs than any other marque with
perhaps the oldest being Dean Baker's beautiful '64 T-120
Clay called the meeting to order with over twenty members in
attendance. Clay reminded everyone about the
Spring Hill Country Ride scheduled
for the weekend of 18 April. Our March club
meeting is going to be at Perry's Motorcycles and Sidecars.
Perry and Merry have been a long time supporter of the NTNOA. Bikes
entered in the bike show by Perry at the Lake O' the Pines Rallye
usually win a first place trophy. Our April
meeting will once again be at the Harley Dog Saloon at Hicks
Field in Phil Crane's hangar. This is usually one of the best
attending venues of the year.
Dennis Tackett trailered this year's raffle bike; a '79 T-140
Bonneville Special to showcase the awesome job David Lyles did
polishing the bike. David painted the frame and polished the cases.
He did a remarkable job with both and even the Amal MKII's were
shinning. . Thanks much Dave. Dave has a great website at
Jason Small, owner of Lonestar Vintage Motorcycle Restorations is
painting the gas tank and side panels. Jason did a remarkable job
painting last year's raffle bike. The NTNOA is supporting
Jason by registering a domain name and building him a website.

Dennis also brought a few copies of Denis Manning's new hardcover
book titled, "World's Fastest Motorcycle: The Day The Bonneville
Salt Stood Still." The club purchased a case of the books directly
from BUB. Retail price is $35 but
the club is selling the book to club members for $15. There are only
a few remaining so contact
Dennis if you want one.
