February is our Thunder Roads anniversary month each year,
so for those wondering about the cover this month, it is our way of saying
thank you to everyone for supporting us since we took over the magazine
seven years ago. Hard to believe it has been seven years already. Seems
like just yesterday we were putting together the premier issue of the
TnT era of Thunder Roads of Alabama/Florida Pan. Amazing how time flies
when you're doing what you love. We look forward to every opportunity
we get to hang out with our huge Thunder Roads Biker family. Your friendship
and your loyalty are a blessing we are grateful for every day. We hope
to remain your first choice for Biker news and information in Alabama/Florida
Pan for many years to come.
Riding events are a bit slim this time of year but not totally gone. There
are other activities to enjoy in the interim. Bet they won't mind if you
ride your bike even if it's not a poker run or other riding event. Mardi
Gras is early this year. There are two great parties kicking off the month
to help celebrate Mardi Gras in style, both are a blast! The ABBA Shrine
Biker's Ball in Mobile, AL is always a great time. This is a weekend long
event culminating with a ride downtown to enjoy the parades on Sunday.
Festivities start on Friday night February 5th, with the Biker's Ball
on Saturday and the ride on Sunday. For those not in, or wanting to travel
to Mobile, there is the Mardi Gras party at the U.S. Military Vets MC,
Birmingham Chapter Clubhouse, The Bunker, on February 6th. Both are outstanding
parties where we always have a great time. We look forward to seeing you
there, 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.
