The NTNOA's February Meeting
was Sunday, 24 February, at 2:00PM
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 Lamborghini.

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 Bonneville.

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.  The domain name is

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.
