    CMA
    Howdy my fellow PrayerBikers .
    My wife and I joined the CMA in April of 2005 . That is to say , we signed up for it and got our CMA membership numbers . We had watched the hours and hours of video tapes to become patch wearing members , but never sent in the paperwork for it because our local CMA chapter fell apart . However , our local CMA is back and doing well , so we decided to take the CMA training course over again ( lucky for us the new course is only about 4 hours long. LOL ) and become full patched members .
    One of the things that really got me very interested in the CMA again was the CMA Bighorn Mountains Roads and Trails event that was held on the Bighorn Mountains this year. Until we attended this event , we never realized how much fun the CMA could be. This was the first CMA Bighorns Roads and Trails event and it was a success . We had 55 people registered for the first event and I can't wait until next years. I'm also looking forward to attending other CMA Roads and Trails Events around America . If you haven't attended one of these events , give it a try , it's loads of fun.
    Anyway , I'm glad the Lord has taken me in this direction , I hope I will be able to serve Him well as a CMA member.

    It's been a while since anyone added to the debate on this topic. In it's time, it got just about more replies than any other issue that was put on the forum for discussion (63)! I came across this article in the weekly "gotquestions.org" website, & thought it might be worth adding to the discussion. It contains some thoughtful Scriptural input on the subject of obesity, which is a big problem these days, & getting worse. Thought it might give y'all some "food for thought"!
    Question: "Is gluttony a sin? What does the Bible say about overeating?"

Answer: Gluttony seems to be a sin that Christians like to ignore. We are often quick to label smoking and drinking as sins, but for some reason gluttony is accepted or at least tolerated. Many of the arguments used against smoking and drinking, such as health and addiction, apply equally to overeating. Many believers would not even consider having a glass of wine or smoking a cigarette but have no qualms about gorging themselves at the dinner table. This should not be!

Proverbs 23:20-21 warns us, “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.” Proverbs 28:7 declares, “He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.” Proverbs 23:2 proclaims, “Put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.” 

Physical appetites are an analogy of our ability to control ourselves. If we are unable to control our eating habits, we are probably also unable to control other habits, such as those of the mind (lust, covetousness, anger) and unable to keep our mouths from gossip or strife. We are not to let our appetites control us, but we are to have control over our appetites. (See Deuteronomy 21:20, Proverbs 23:2, 2 Peter 1:5-7, 2 Timothy 3:1-9, and 2 Corinthians 10:5.) The ability to say “no” to anything in excess—self-control—is one of the fruits of the Spirit common to all believers (Galatians 5:22).

God has blessed us by filling the earth with foods that are delicious, nutritious, and pleasurable. We should honor God's creation by enjoying these foods and by eating them in appropriate quantities. God calls us to control our appetites, rather than allowing them to control us.

    Very well said Doc ,
    Love those bible verses . It's true , we look at people who smoke , drink , gamble and say: "Hey , don't do that, it's a sin" , while we ourselves are sinning by gorging on food instead of just eating what we need to survive on. The bible warns us of this in Matthew 7:3 "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye" ?
    Most times it is easier for us to look at other peoples sin , than to look in the mirror at our own sins and faults .
    I could use your prayers in helping me to lose some weight . I could stand to lose 20-25 pounds . ( I'm 6 foot , 4 inches tall and weigh 240 lbs )
    Blessings.

    Hi there JT,
    Checked out the pictures --- some real nice scenery up there in the Bighorns, although I don't think I would be risking the Harley on those trail roads --- they look to be a bit challenging for any bikes not equipped for off-road work! You've certainly branched out in choosing your roads to ride since you got rid of the Gold Wing --- must have opened up a whole new area for you to explore this past year. Glad you had the company of the CMA riders for those recent rides ---- Good company on a ride can turn a good ride into a memorable one! Enjoy the rest of the riding season & ride safe!
    God Bless ---- Doc.


    Hi Doc ,
    This was a CMA "Roads and Trails" event . They had Paved roads for Street motorcycles , dirt roads and trails for Dual Sport , Adventure and Dirt Bike motorcycles , and some rough 2 track routes for ATV's . So there was something for everyone at this event.
    I don't ride the rough dirt roads or trails , just the maintained dirt roads . We really enjoy this motorcycle over the Goldwing . It's given us a lot more places to ride and explore.
    Post some pictures of your next ride , I'd love to see them.

    Hi JT,
    That was a great ride you had, & I enjoyed looking at the photographs too ---- Plenty of open space around you up there, & I bet you didn't have to worry too much about the traffic!
    Did anyone actually live in those deserted cabins up there on the hills, or were they just for summer use when folks were looking after cattle? --- Just wondering. Must have been a hard life if they lived up there in winter!!
    Hope you are enjoying your 18th Wedding anniversary today! Time goes past so quickly, so make the most of it & enjoy the ride!
    God Bless --- Doc.


    There sure is a lot of open space out here Doc , Wyoming is the Least Populated State in America . While riding the dirt roads we seen 3 cattle trucks ( ranchers were branding cows and shipping cattle that day ) and 2 pickup trucks . That's it , that's all the traffic we encountered while riding the back country dirt roads ( well , unless you count the herds of cattle that were in the road every now and then and Cowboys on horseback ) . That's why I love riding them so much . Plus the scenery is mush better . We had never been on this road before and it took us up into Montana . There were plenty of dirt roads off of that to explore to , but that's for another day . In the spring and fall we explore the dirt country roads out on the prairie and in summer we explore the dirt roads in the mountains . It's nice to ride up there where it's a lot cooler in the summer .
    The old log cabins were Ranchers homes at one time. That's what people lived in on the prairie way back when . We came across a few of them , but I don't stop to often to take pictures . Wish I had a GoPro camera for the bike .
    These are some picture my wife and I took at the Outlaw Cave in Wyoming . It's where the famous outlaw "Hole In The Wall Gang" with Butch Cassidy and the Sundace Kid hid out . ( www.atlasobscura.com/places/hole-in-the-wall-outlaw-hideout ) . There is tons of History in Wyoming to explore and it's my wife and I's favorite thing to do .

    Thank you for the birthday wishes Doc ,
    I had a great ride with my wife today . We found this old dirt road and got ourselves lost . Lucky for me , we brought along our GPS and made it home okay .
    Seen people on horseback rounding up cattle and branding them , seen plenty of deer and antelope , Bald Eagles and Hawks , cows and long horn steers in the middle of the dirt road , old log cabin range homes ... It was an awesome birthday.
    We stopped a couple times to rest and I took a couple pictures .
    Blessings my friend.

    Good morning on ya ,
    Doc , glad your weather is improving and your getting some riding in , that's always good for the soul . Good to hear your church services are also doing well . It is fun to see how different countries have their church services . I spend a fair amount of time watching Adventure Riding Video and on Adventure Riding Facebook pages . I love to see how other countries ride and enjoy motorcycling . And if there is one thing I learned is that in most countries the people are very friendly and helpful .
    Well , tomorrow ( May 25th ) is my birthday . My wife bought me a pair of Moto Skiveez and I'm going to test them out over this Memorial Day weekend . I will report back on Monday or Tuesday with a review of them . motoskiveez.com/adventure-skiveez/
    Sunday May 25th is also my wife and I's 18th wedding anniversary . I love her more now then the day we met . The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful woman , wife and best friend , and I couldn't be happier or more grateful .
    Hope everyone here at Prayerbike.com is doing well . May God Bless You All .

    Good morning folks ,
    Yesterday the local CMA held their annual "Run for the Son" ride . We started out here in Sheridan , Wyoming and rode to Leiter , WY to meet up with CMA members from the Gillette , Wyoming area . While in Leiter , Wy , a round of prayers was said and every motorcycle was blessed . Then we rode to Buffalo , WY for lunch at the Dash Inn and back to Sheridan , WY . We had about 20 motorcycles and 2 cars . On of the guys on a Harley had a Transmission failure and had to be trailered home . We enjoyed meeting new people and talking with them , and we had a very nice time .
    I didn't think my wife and I were still members of the CMA because shortly after we joined the CMA ( in April of 2005 ) our local chapter fizzled out . I found out yesterday that we are still active CMA members .
    Hope your all doing well . May God Bless You all .

    Hi to Everyone,
    Congratulations Al, on getting your security upgrades done, & still managing to get the website to operate OK at the end of it all! When I was working, every time there was a so called "upgrade" applied to the system, almost without fail, it took two more efforts to get it to work properly again, so well done! I also think that, as the guy who had the vision to found this site in the first place, you deserve some extra congratulations for getting us to page 500! It has taken 4 years & 10 months to get this far, but what an interesting history those 500 pages hold!
    It's fascinating to read how some peoples lives have changed over that period of time : ----- despairing people who had lost jobs have managed to find new employment, & with that, new hope & direction. Some have added kids & grandkids to the family tree; a few have written Testimonies as to how God's redeeming love has brought them from the deepest darkness of those earlier years, into the light of His Eternal love -- bondages broken by the power of the Cross. There have, of course been some sad losses of past members, & I am thinking particularly of Phil Tolliver, who started page 1 of this thread back then, almost 5 years ago. A few contributors have had to stop riding, for one reason or another: & last, but nor least, we're all a bit older, & maybe even a bit wiser too!
    Recently, there has been a drop off in contributions to this site ----- I'm not sure if that is down to the so-called "social media" such as Facebook, Twitter etc. If it is, that's a real shame, as I don't know of any other sites that offer free hosting to folk who share our double passion ---- a) Jesus & b) Motorcycles & riding. If folk just look, & don't contribute, there's not going to be a chance to get a real dialogue going, so I hope that will change as we move towards Spring, & start to get out more on the bikes.
    Over here in Scotland, we've just had a couple of mild sunny days, so things are starting to look good for riding. I hope all you Brothers & Sisters over there in USA are enjoying life, & hope to hear from some of you soon.
    Ride safe & God Bless ---- Doc.



    I'm guilty of hanging out in social media Doc . All my relatives live 2,000 miles away and a lot of my childhood friends also live there , so it's a good place for me to keep in contact with them.
    I do try to read and reply to post here every time I get an e-mail notice that someone has posted , but it seems dead in here . Even when I do post , there aren't many replies , if any. But that's OK , I still enjoy reading the post and seeing what everyone is up to.
    Yesterday I was able to sneak the bike out for a short putt ( around 20 miles ) and then came back home and put it away , it was 39 degrees F. when I left the house on the bike . This morning everything was covered in several inches of snow again . LOL I have spring fever now , hope it comes soon.
    Have a great day everyone. May God Bless You All.

    JT,

    We are starting to plan a Big Horn Mountain weekend for some time in July or August. Not sure what it will look like just yet, but initial thoughts are to have a cruiser route which does a highway loop, a dual-sport option running a bunch of the forest roads and possibly some two track routes for the quads. Hope to base out of one of the lodges where people can rent a room and others can pitch a tent if they want. Stay tuned as this all comes together.

    Hi Folks,
    It's Saturday morning & the weather isn't too bad over here for the time of year -- T46F, windy, & some showers, but at least we don't have the snow & ice as yet! Have to do some preparation for the early Church service tomorrow -- it's a special "Mums & Tots" service, for all the 3 month to 3 year kids who come to the Church playgroup that my wife helps out. I'm supposed to be doing the opening & the m/c bit + some prayers, but the wife has already warned me to expect chaos! Be praying that we might be able to use the service to reach out to some of the mums who never darken the door of a Church, with Jesus message of hope & love at this Christmas time.
    Hope all you Prayerbikers have a great weekend!

    Good Sunday morning to ya Doc ,
    Praying everything goes smooth for your Mum's & Tots event .
    Thank you for the First Aid Kit Advice , it was well taken .
    Does it rain a lot where you are ?
    We haven't gotten any more snow since we've talked last and the temps have gone back up to more normal winter temps ,however they say we have a 50% chance of snow on Thursday . I'm getting cabin fever , so after Christmas I'm going to buy some leather and horse hides to make some gun holsters and other projects over the winter .
    Hope you've had a great weekend , God Bless ya.

    Good Morning JT,
    Hope you had a good night's sleep! I'm constantly amazed at the amount of information you have on such a wide variety of topics! You should have pursued a career as a researcher --- I'm sure you would have been a star! Until you mentioned it, I had never heard of "Fish antibiotics", although i was aware that fish farms used various chemicals to keep their breeding stock free of disease. I clicked the link you gave, & was amazed at the variety of "fish antibiotics" that were available to order, & I have to say, they cover the whole spectrum of antibiotics available to humans, & the dose strengths they offer also parallel those available for use on humans. It would seem unlikely that any ingredients toxic to humans would be added to the formula, so the main issue around using them in humans, would be the authenticity of the active drug present --- in other words, can you trust the seller/manufacturer to provide exactly what is stated on the label!
    Over here in Europe, it is illegal to sell antibiotics without a doctor's prescription, & anyone offering online supplies (whether for fish, animals or human varieties) is subject to Jail +/- a $16,000 fine! The idea of that law is to stop people self-medicating, & ultimately contributing to antibiotic resistance getting worse than it already is.
    Coming back to your original question, if those "fish antibiotics" have the active ingredients as stated on the label, then I suppose that they would work, in an emergency, although I wouldn't recommend going down that road without knowing a lot about the condition you were treating, + a fair bit about the best choice of antibiotic to do the job ----- not to mention a lot about side effects & inter-reactions with other medications you might be taking!
    Hope that helps!
    Have a good day --- Doc.


    Hi Doc ,
    Yes , your post has helped a lot , thank you so much for your insight on this topic .. I confess I'm not as good a researcher as you think , I got the idea watching a Survival TV show and another show called Dooms Day Preppers , Then I looked it up.
    As I stated , I fully understand the dangers of taking or over taking antibiotics and it's not something I take lightly. But I've been thinking of getting a supply " Just for extreme Emergencies" , and would only be used in the case where something bad would happen and I couldn't get to a doctor. I will research what these antibiotics are for and what they treat , and then print it out to put with my First Aid Kit .We also have some Potassium Iodide tablets in case of a nuclear fallout . www.campingsurvival.com/nucprot.html .
    I'd like to build a comprehensive First Aid Kit , that will cover a wide range of injuries . Any suggestions ? In the mean time I will buy some First Aid books to learn more about first aid. I have taken a few First aid courses in the past , but I've very rusty on them , I need to refresh my memory .
    Personally , I hope I never need these things. But I like to be prepared....just in case ??

    Good Evening JT,
    Just been reading your post about folk being prepared for an an emergency ---- you are, of course right, we should be, but truth is, we mostly aren't, because there's something in human nature that always expects tomorrow to be much the same as yesterday, & the day before that etc. etc. ---- until, of course, something unexpected happens, & then we are full of regrets! .
    Reminds me of that parable in Matthew 25, about the Kingdom of Heaven, which warns us to be prepared : you know the one ---- 10 virgins with their lamps awaiting the arrival of the bridegroom --- only 5 bothered to get the necessary oil, & when the bridegroom arrived unexpectedly, they were the only ones ready & able to be invited in to share the feast in the Kingdom. It ends by telling us to "Watch, therefore, as you know neither the day, nor the hour"!
    I guess no one will catch you unprepared though! Keep on being prepared, brother!
    God Bless --- Doc.


    Thanks for the bible passage Doc ,
    I think the reason so many people don't prepare is they think they can't afford to. But the truth is , they can. Just do it a little at a time. But 2 or 3 extra canned goods when you do your grocery shopping and put them away for emergency. Do this every time you grocery shop and you'll be surprised at how many emergency supply's you can build up. We also rotate out supply's , so they stay fresh.
    Having emergency travel bags made up is also a must. You should have at least a weeks worth ( for every persons bag ) of food and other items in an emergency bag ready to take with you . Items like a water purification straws , or tables , a stainless steel or aluminum cup to heat water or food in and other things. This way if you have to leave your home in an emergency , you can grab your emergency bag as you head out the door.
    I try to convince family and friends to prepare , but most don't want to hear it They think I'm nuts , maybe I am , but I'm prepared
    Anyway , it makes for a great topic of discussion .If anyone would like to share their emergency preparation ideas with me , I'd love to hear them.

    JT
    P.S.
    Doc ,
    I'm well aware of the dangers of taking to many antibiotics , and would never take them unless my Doctor prescribed them for me. But I have a question.
    In an "Extreme" emergency ( something big has happened and you can't even get treatment at a hospital ) , what do you think of treating a wound with Fish Antibiotics ? Many of the fish antibiotics found on the shelves in pet stores are the same as the antibiotics prescribed by doctors. So can you use them in an extreme emergency ? ( I'll have to ask my doctor the same question ). Example : search.campingsurvival.com/mod_search/de...x=15&submit.y=18

    Hi Folks,
    Pretty busy here these days --- Thank Goodness!
    JT : You are a master of internet information! Enjoyed looking at those old pictures on your link to 1978! I guess we all have short memory recall, & think present circumstances are bad, but when we seriously research the past, things were often very much worse --- our parents had to cope with World War, poor transport, no air-conditioning etc. etc. I often wonder if large parts of southern USA would be considered habitable these days, if there was no air-con in summer or plenty of fuel for coping with winter. You're certainly well organised to cope with most of what climate, government of even life itself is likely to throw your way -- that year's supply of provisions is impressive! I doubt most folk over here keep even a week's supply! Hope you never need it!
    Beemer : Thanks for the concern --- To put your mind at rest, my wife got back safe & sound in the coach from Edinburgh, & enjoyed the show she went to see + managed to do some Christmas shopping! No woman worth her salt is going to let a mere gale get between her & some of the best shops in Scotland! Enjoy your Chapter Christmas party!
    Tinker : Hope you had a Happy Birthday, in spite of various family concerns! Daughters seem destined to cause perpetual worries to parents, no matter what their age! My own daughter wasted many years of her life going with guys whom my wife or I could have told her after a few months, were using her, & basically a waste of space --- but of course they never listen to their parents, & we just have to hang in there like a safety net to catch & support them when they finally come to their senses! Mothers' instincts are often right, so praying that your daughter gets her eyes opened sooner rather than later.
    Hope all you other Prayerbikers over there have a great weekend.
    God Bless ---- Doc.



    I'd rather have it and not need it , then need it and not have it Doc. We just add a little at a time to our emergency supply's and over time it has built up. Most of it is Mountain House Freeze Dried Food , that will last 25 years or more. Did you know that canned SPAM has a shelf live of 3 years , but is still good to eat way beyond that. It's starts to loose some flavor after three years on the shelf , but is still safe to eat way beyond that. When my wife grocery shops she buys a couple extra canned items to add to our emergency stock.
    This is something I truly believe in. People wouldn't be so bad off in an emergency if they prepared for one.

    We learned a valuable lessen in 1978 when a blizzard closed the roads down for over a week. Every one had to walk to the grocery store ( no vehicles were allowed on the roads because they were impassable ) and by the time we got there the shelves were bare , no milk , no bread etc... interactives.wpri.com/photomojo/gallery/.../stuck-on-route-128/
    My wife and I have been storing water , food and other supply's so that if an emergency ( natural or man made ) does happen , we'll be safe. If you folks haven't done so , you may want to consider this. Everyone should be prepared for an emergency and have enough provisions to last at least a week or more. ( we have over a years worth ) . You can't control what will happen , but you can prepared for it and hope for the best.

    Good morning folks ,
    Last week a friend of mine in NY ( Zeke ) gave me a strange little rifle. Zeke used to be a gunsmith in the town where I was born in RI and we caught up with one another on FB.. Now before I go any further , he didn't just mail me the firearm. He's has an FFL license and he mailed it to my gunsmith here in town where I picked it up and did the paper work on it.
    Zeke was telling me that in places like Long Island 22 long Rifles can not be used , so Remington developed guns like this for pest control back in the day. They were made to shoot mice , snakes etc..
    This firearm is a Remington Model 514 - 22 Long Rifle with a Smooth Bore Rutledge Barrel designed to shoot 22 long Rifle #12 shot shells. It's basically a little 22 shotgun
    I have a regular Remington 514 single shot 22 lr ( long Rifle ) that shoots 22 shorts , longs and long rifle ammunition . So I decided to put my 514 side by side with the 514 Zeke gave me.
    In the first picture the Remington 514 Zeke gave me with the smooth bore is on top and my Remington 514 is on the bottom.
    In the second picture , the Remington 514 smooth bore Rutledge barrel Zeke gave me is on the left and my Remington 514 with a regular 22 lr barrel is on the right. Check out the big difference in the bore ( the hole in the end of the barrel ) see how much bigger it is on the smooth bore 22.
    Anyway , I find this firearm to be a very good conversation piece and thought I would share it with you folks.
    Blessings my friends

    Good Morning JT,
    Good reply regarding the seasons! Doesn't sound like much is going to phase you, no matter what the weather throws at you! Over here, we are having a gale today -- winds gusts up to 100mph + a lot of rain. Just got back from walking the dogs --- I think they were glad to get back to the house, & so was I! The house is quiet, as my wife has headed out to Edinburgh by coach for a concert, along with a group of friends. Got some work to do,though, with preparation for a couple of services that I am involved in at the Church in the next few weeks, so I'd best make a start to that, as I don't like last minute hassles.
    I had a look at your weather link -- at least you get to see the sun, even if it is freezing, but Saturday doesn't look too promising --- Better get wrapped up --- Brrrrr!!
    Enjoy your day ------ Doc


    Good morning Doc ,
    Weather never did phase me , there was never anything I could do about it anyway , so why worry about it , embrace it instead. I do have to laugh at people who move here from southern states or places like south California . They do nothing but complain about the cold and the snow , well why did they move here in the first place ? LOL
    100 mph winds and rain , wow ! That sounds like it could be dangerous ! Stay safe.
    Is your wife a music teacher ? What are you preparing for at the Church ? Do you guys have Christmas services there ?
    Yesterday I got a look at the new 2014 Yamaha Super Tenere's , all I can say is WOW ! They changed the bike quite a bit and added more electronics to it. It's a really nice machine !
    I have all the heat shut off in the house . We have an attached garage and a door leading from our kitchen into my garage. ( that's where my wood stove is , in the garage ) I leave that kitchen door open and use a regular freestanding house fan to suck the hot air out of the garage and into the house. It's 73 degrees F. in my living room and Minus -17 degrees F outside right now. Love my old wood stove. Here's a picture of it.
    Have a great day Doc. Blessings my friend.
