Pony Tales Sept 2013

By Lulu

Kids are returning to school. Change of season is approaching. And life perpetually changes. You can’t stop it, even when you want to. A man called this morning in tears over the loss of his brother-in-law in a motorcycle accident this week. I simply had no idea how to comfort him. Bruce Rossmeyer’s grandson was in a motorcycle accident recently and although injured he will be fine. I believe an angel was protecting him. Accidents happen. Being on two wheels without a shield of armor around us, we are fragile. Please ride with care and as if the other’s around us are gunning for us. We as riders are our only defense!


I am so excited about an event occurring the first weekend in October for lady riders. Iron Horse Saloon, J&P Cycles, Twisted Tea and ROAR Motorcycles are hosting a weekend to honor the largest growing riding population, WOMEN. Billed as “Hear us Roar”, I hope that ladies from all over the state will try to ride in to Daytona. There are limited to rooms at the hotel where we will throw a pool party Saturday morning with live music. See Iron Horse ad for the info. When I say limited rooms, I mean less than 40 so hurry and sign up. The La Quinta is the secondary place to stay on the beach and there is always the hotel at Destination Daytona, although since Sunday is the huge Camp Boggy Creek Ride for Children rooms will go quickly there also. This weekend will feature a private Meet & Greet at the Iron Horse Friday night with free wine and cheese, then a live band and it will open up to the men folk. There will be raffle prizes for lady riders. Saturday the pool party will kick off the morning, then a ride out of J&P Cycles who will have some tech tip demos for ladies. The ride will be a self ride through the loop but our Grand Marshalls Jody Perewitz (fastest lady on two wheels) and CEO of ROAR Motorcycles Kathleen Tolleson will be on hand to meet everyone. The ride will end at ROAR, with our final destination to be Iron Horse for their Saturday Bike Night featuring a bike show with prizes, live music. Please plan to stay for the two day event and if you haven’t ridden to Camp Boggy Creek it is a fabulous cause and a GREAT event.

Remember to be kind to those you love, ride safe and don’t forget your sunscreen!
