    My wife and I have 3 digit membership numbers. 557 & 667.
    I was wondering how many other 3 digit number members are still active.

    George Unangst aka MTHelmet.

    That brings up another question. How many had CB Radios on their bike, back in the day.

    I have a 5 digit # from 1977. And yes, indeed, Voni and I had CB radios and wired speakers in our helmets. When she was a brand new rider she went first and set the pace and I pointed out any potential hazards I noticed from behind. Now over a million miles later she says she still hears that voice in her head when she sees certain circumstances, like a vehicle on a side road rapidly approaching and a stop appears not to be certain.

    No CBs but I can tell you that meticulously highlighted map folded in half to show 250 miles of a 500 mile day on each side is totally useless when facing a major midwest storm front at 4:00 am.

    CB was a lot of fun. Took me from tubes to transistors to LSI to SMT and being able to construct a reasonant antenna out of most anything metallic.

    No CB on bike but in my pickup. With a 5/8 wave antennae and 20ft of mast on top of a two-story house it would cross 18-20 miles of Dakota prairie and was used for business comms. Replaced by business band radio, and I guess that’s been largely replaced by cell phones. Time marches on, I guess.

    Unless you’re an Airhead, of course.

    I was the Plainsman. Voni was Lady Godiva. Which raised certain imaginations, I suppose.
