Spring is finally starting to peek its nose around the
corner. We were actually able to take a couple of rides without dressing
like an arctic expedition. Motorcycle events will start ramping up this
month. Keep an eye on the Events page for the latest happenings. The submissions
to the Events page are growing. That's a good sign that plenty of people
are ready to give Ol' Jack his walkin' papers. We are definitely looking
forward to kicking his ass out of town.
February was a very busy month and the crappy weather did not help matters
any. We kicked off the month with Thumper conspiring a "surprise"
party to celebrate the 21st anniversary of my 29th birthday. I say "surprise"
because I think I was the only person in Alabama who didn't know about
it. Yes, I was quite surprised. This was followed by the U.S. Military
Vets MC, Birmingham Chapter's annual Mardi Gras Party. This party is an
outstanding event each year, a great way to shake off the winter cabin
fever and look ahead to better riding weather. Look for more on the party
in next month's issue.
This month we have an article on the Tail of the Dragon in NC/TN. Anyone
planning a riding vacation should consider a visit to the Dragon, you
won't be disappointed. The whole area is biker friendly with plenty of
scenic roads to ride that have enough hills and curves to keep the ride
interesting. We hope you enjoy the article. Your feedback is important
to us so let us know if you would like to see more of these travel stories.
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.
