Time again for our chapter meeting to roll around the calendar. It was a beautiful day and perfect for a short ride from the dealership to Billy Bobs Honky Tonk. 63 bikes rode the parade line this month through the stockyards. The usual raffles and 50/50 took place along with snippets of future lineups for chapter events.
Margaret Burned Her Leg
Margaret burned her leg on my tailpipe while getting off the bike upon arrival at Billy Bobs. I told her not to wear loose clothes but she put on some bell-bottom style pants with tennis shoes. She got the pant leg stuck on the foot peg while getting off. That pulled the pants up exposing bare skin and caused her leg to be pulled into the tail pipe.
While she sat on the curb waiting for me to render aid, I promptly grabbed the GoPro to get video clips. Nothing I could do for her to be honest, I didn't have any first aid supplies. Needless to say, she corrected my irresponsible behavior and informed me that I would never leave her wounded on the street again. "Priorities", she cried! She also fixed up a first aid kit for me which I now keep in the saddlebag. Yea, I was exiled to the dog house for a couple of days for this mistake.
We left a bit early this time instead of staying through until the end. The Patriot Guard riders had a mission that I wanted to attend. After leaving I dropped Margaret off at the house I went to Laurel Land Cemetery and stood the flag line out of respect for another of our fallen veterans.
