    Biker/Motorcyclist Support

    I want to give a shout-out of thanks to two establishments in the Mid-South. The Old Airport Club in West Memphis, Ark. and ShakeRag Bar and Grill in Millington, Tn.. Both welcome the motorized 2-wheel rider class. Generally, Iím a solo/lone rider, but I do like rolling into a welcoming establishment from time to time.

    Riding as a Biker

    I like wearing my Stich. But, as of late Iím hanging with the bikers. When I wear the Stich, I get the usual brain dead comments, U an Astronaut or U planning on crashing? Gets a little old. But I like wearing some protection. I like jeans, so I wear Draggin Jeans. Kevlar is heavy.

    I have an old school Belstaff riding outfit. Good old school stuff, wax cotton. The pants were heavy. Found some heavy duty suspenders, Popular Mechanics. Really good stuff. Decided I needed the same for the Kevlar jeans. Got what I thought was the same suspenders, they were Roebucks. They ainít as heavy duty. Get the Popular Mechanics or equivalent.

    Aerostich had a big setup at the National in Springfield. Among their offerings were waxed cotton Roadcrafter suits for the old-school folks. Andy told me he liked the idea so they did it.

    Belstaff > Stich

    Quite a few years ago I met the late gentleman rider John Lyle. At the time he had just purchased a 2 piece Belstaff suit. John was kinda tall and slim, he was impressive looking in Belstaff. He rode all of North America, U.S., Alaska, Canada, Mexico. I ran into him a couple of years later. The suit was in tatters. Patched and duck taped back together. He had totally worn it out. John, U going to get another one. No, I think Iíll get me a Stich. I think that was what he was wearing until he passed. What a Guy/Gentleman. RIP John

    I miss the Belstaff clothingÖÖ.even miss the smell of the peat infused flannel lining from the deeper mud holes on the single-track.

    Never been to the mother country, to ride thru bog single track trails. I have rode thru the Ozarks and Ouchitaís mountain trails on my Beemerís. Probably not even close to the bogs of the British Isles. My old riding buddy Greg got me started riding motorcycles; a BMW R50/5 on those trails, totally crazy, but looking back, it made me a better rider. And most important, I survived to tell the tale.

    Actually now that I think about Greg started me riding trails along the ridges and bluffs north of Memphis; close to the Mississippi River. A lot like the Ozarks in Arkansas. Great memories, glad I can remember it. I was riding GS style, but I didnít know it back then.
