|More than 40 members and guests
braved the threatening weather and rode to our March meeting and
perhaps the final Spring Erection Party at Peckerhead Motorcycle
Racing's Hq. (see below).
In spite of the ominous clouds and occasional sound of thunder we lucked out and enjoined a rain free and very pleasant afternoon.
Clay Walley called the meeting to order (or tried to) on time and reviewed the club's old business and upcoming events. Dennis Tackett asked for volunteers to lead club rides to various events where our club has been invited to display our vintage bikes. Anyone interested should contact Dennis at firstname.lastname@example.org. The next event is at the Fort Worth Boat Club Car & Bike Show - Saturday, 7 April. Dennis will once again display our LOP raffle bike and sell raffle tickets at the show.
New members included Thomas Moore. Tom rode up on his 1961 Triumph 650 Trophy that many initially thought was one of the new Triumphs. The bike belonged to his dad who chopped it over the years. Tom restored it to pristine condition and rode it to the meeting with his wife Jenni (see picture below).
Mike Vance and Berwyn Henderson rode their new rides, a '07 FJR1300 and '05 R1200RT respectively to the meeting. Mike's ride only had 25 miles on the odometer. Berwyn bought his new RT (he has two) in Tampa, FL and attended bike week at Daytona Beach before returning home.
Immediately after the meeting an employee of Captain Commando's Up N' Smoke Restaurant and Motorsports Bar arrived with plenty of BBQ for all to enjoy - which we did -paid for by the club.

Party" was held in April, 1977 to celebrate the "erection" of my
