Anderson Power Sports Ride..

Eight of us met at Jackie's Family Restaurant for a ride today.  Phil Smith rode his riding mower down to see us off.  After making sure Phil had enough gas to get back home, the other seven of us took off for Chism's Corner (at the intersection of IN 13 and US 22&35) and lunch.

I had planned to lead the guys on a ride around Greentown, and environs, but Billy said he was going to Anderson Power Sports, in Anderson, to order a clutch pack for his T-Rex. I decided we needed to go with him so we could look at all the motorcycles at the store.  I'd never been there before but some of the guys, Larry Burke being one, had bought bikes there.  Off we went to Elwood on IN 13, over east on IN 28 to Alexandria, then down south on IN 9 to Anderson.  The rest of us looked at bikes while Billy ordered his clutch parts at Anderson Power Sports.  They have a lot of outdoor equipment and four brands of motorcycles.

We decided it was time for ice cream, after looking at all those motorcycles, so I led the riders to Gaston and then on to Upland and Ivanhoe's.  The ice cream was great on a hot summer day (95 degrees).  It really wasn't that bad as long as we kept moving and didn't stand outside too long.

We split up for home, after ice cream, and I got home about 4:00PM.  It was a very nice ride and I think we all had a nice time.  Something to remember this winter when the snow is flying! :)

I rode 106 miles.

Riding today was Larry Burke, Larry Miller, Larry Davis (do you see a pattern?:), Jerry Cole, John Nave, Charlie Thomas, and Billy Niverson.

Jerry Cole rode his new (to him) 2006 H.D. Roadking that replaced the H.D. Fatboy that was wrecked.  Really nice bike.
