Good morning all. We got a some clouds today, but so far it isn't raining. We've had quite a bit of rain lately and the rivers are coming out of their banks! At least I got short ride in last evening. It was a glorius evening for a ride!
Have a great day everyone!

Good morning to you too Philt! Always loved riding at night. The fresh air and cool temps made it so special.

Good afternoon!!

I am working this week in Pueblo Colorda. The sun is shining and it is a glorious day!! Of course I am stuck inside so it could be nice to be out and about, but I have a job and it's a good one, so I am still very thankful!

Pueblo Colorado is a pleasant town sitting at about 5000ft. It obviously has a large motorcycle community as riders are simply everywhere.

Good morning all! Looks like a gloomy rainy day today. Glad I got a ride in last night! No riding today. But we have a weekly Bible Studay at a good friend's house today and then we get together with the chapter every Friday night.
Have a great day!

Looks like rain here later in the day too, but the weekend is looking to be great and in the 80s.

We also have regular chapter activity, most recently we all went with our families to see the Rockies play ball, that was my first ball game experience and it was incredible, of course we drew great attention to the Lord while we were there, simply fantastic!!

I understand about drawing attention. When we go as a group to eat or a movie or even to a park and have our colors on, we do draw a LOT of attention. Fact, and this is really bad, we have been turned down at restaurants because of our "leather" and "biker" attire. Talk about discrimination. But, we have bills in the legislature to change this. Send up a prayer that it gets passed.

Wow! That has never happened to us. What a shame. We always get a lot of attention. But it's been positive. Last week we were at a Mexican restaraunt and a guy walked up behind me and grabbed my shoulder. He had obviously had a few beers with his food! He told me that the patch on my back was the greatest thing he had ever seen!
At least he saw it and recognized what I stood for. I will pray for your legislation.

I have never knowingly experienced discrimination yet, well not in full biker gear. We have been to ball games, theaters and restaurants and all sorts, but as yet haven't being told we've been innapropriately dressed. It's actually so far only been really positive. I think I will enjoy riding the wave.

But then in a second flat I would leave my leather on the bike so I could still go in. I know this is not what a lot of folks would do. We (our chapter) and I thought CMA generally, have this plan in place that if we are ever asked to remove our colors, since it is really not about the colors at all for us. I think that is if we're put on the spot about it.

With that said, unless there was something of particular interest to us inside, it might be just as easy to go next door and give that business our business, and maybe from then on!

Yea, if I was asked to remove my colors, I would probably do that. I just probably wouldn't go back to that establishment. But I definitely wouldn't want a confrontation with them on. There are some events over in Illinois that no colors are allowed. But that is so that there isn't any problems with some of the outlaw clubs. As far as being asked to leave for wearing leathers and such, I really don't go to places that care if I am dressed like a biker!

The really active members of our chapter have not been back to that restaurant since the incident and, in fact, many of the bikers in the area have somewhat boycotted the place because of there rule.

It's a shame too. I belong to the American Legion here and they are starting an American Legion Riders in the post. I'm beginning to believe that it may never come to pass because of the attitudes of some of the "older" members. In fact, one of the leadership walked up to someone with the Patriot Guard and told him he would have to take off his American Flag doorag to come in the door. This same man told a young veteran that the way he wore his cap made him look like a n----r, talk about a really good way to ruin membership. I told the Commander that statements like that to the wrong people can start a fight inside the place in a heartbeat and some of the Vietnam vets are like that still. Problem is the older folks will get hurt in the process. So, I just say a prayer and go on about my business.

I've gotten to the point that there are some very narrow-minded people in this world and they just can't accept change or the passing of the torch to the younger generations. The next generation of vets are young enough to be their grandkids and some great grands.

Okay, I'm off my soap box. Let me get some water and calm down. That really gets my dander up. Sorry for the rant.
