maybe.

I stopped by the dealer after work and I saw a bunch of bikes and guys next to the dealer truck and trailer. For those of you in the area who know the people at Cap City I saw "Fast" Eddie, Kerry, Carl and another guy who's name I can't remember and some I didn't know. Eddie yells, "Justin, ya wanna come with us?"

They were all loading their saddle bags with canned and boxed foods to take to a local bank for a food drive. The truck and trailer were going too but they wanted as many bikes to go because, well, it's a motorcycle dealer. We all loaded up and went. We took the back roads so the ride was fun but it was only 10 miles or so.

After we pulled up everyone from the bank came out to see the bikes and to help unload. After we unloaded everything the News 3 team showed up and wanted some footage of us unloading so we all went back in to get an arm full of goods and come out and put it all around our bikes. I told the camera man to get extra footage of the silver bike. He looked at me like he was in a foreign country and asked why. "Because it's mine" I said. He liked that.

Anyway, they got a bunch of footage and than they interviewed the president as he sat on a bike(not mine) in front of the dealer trailer. Everyone from the bank was tickled about the whole deal and we gat a lot of thanks. Felt good.

As we left we saw the camera man was still filming so we all made a loud exit just to show off a little and everyone was cheering us.

Hey, thanks for the heads up guy! I'll check it out. I'll most likely be out a Capital City tomorrow afternoon for a little dog-and-pony show on performance enhancements and (ugh!) winter storage.

Oh, man, I wish I would have known. The world needs to see the chiseled features of handsome bikers.

Yikes, Fast Eddie didn't ride his Buell, did he?

Surely, you jest! Fast Eddie would look like Godzilla riding a tricycle on a Buell.

It was the show closer

As I suspected it might be (I work with TV folks quite a bit, and this one seemed like a candidate for the end-of-show segment). It was mighty short, but it was good press for bikers who care about doing good things. Fast Eddie was shown. Not sure about our own hdmarsh because I haven't met him yet.

I'm glad it was shown even if it was short. I didn't even get to see it because a friend in need called so I left. But, like some have said, anything nice about bikers is a good thing. I might have been on though. Did you see an incredibly good looking ugly dude with a beard and a bike? That might have been me!

I was planning all week on going to the seminar thing today at Cap City but I feel like crap right now. Hope it's not the bird flu!:sofa: Nah, I was probably just over served last night.

Chico, Fast Eddie rode a Road King but he has told me that one of his favorite bikes is a Buell. He dwarfed the RK so I can't imagine him on a little sport bike!


Now, who want an autograph!?:thumbsup:
