Hope everyone had a great Christmas and got to enjoy some
quality time with friends and family. As usual it has been real busy at
the TnT ranch. Thumper's latest surgery went well, the doc says she's
healing pretty well so maybe 2016 will be the year she finally gets back
to her old self or at least as close as possible to her old self. She's
due for some extended two wheel therapy once she recovers enough to spend
time on the bike again.
Mardi Gras comes early this year. To help you celebrate there are two
great parties in this issue to put on your calendar. The ABBA Shrine Bikers
Ball in Mobile, AL is a great party that runs all weekend and wraps up
with a ride downtown for the Mardi Gras parade on Sunday. We always have
a great time at the Bikers Ball and recommend it to anyone looking for
a way to celebrate Mardi Gras in style. The ABBA Shrine Bikers Ball is
February 6th, look for details in this issue. The U.S. Military Vets MC,
Birmingham chapter is holding their 7th annual Mardi Gras Party at The
Bunker. This party is open to the public and gets better every year. The
club uses the funds from this event to support Birmingham area veteran's
causes. For those in the Birmingham area unable to travel to Mobile for
Mardi Gras but still looking for a great way to celebrate, make plans
to visit the Bunker February 6th, you won't be disappointed and you'll
be helping out our local vets in the process. We know you'll have a great
time at either party, don't forget to tell them Thunder Roads sent you.
We wish everyone a bright and prosperous 2016 and look forward to seeing
you all on the Thunder Roads of AL/FL Pan this year.
Thank you all for your continued support
and for patronizing the advertisers who make this "free" publication
possible. Don't forget to tell them you heard about them in Thunder Roads.
As always, thank you for joining us on this
incredible ride. Keep the shiny side up. We'll see you down the road.
