Okay a few hotties threw us a curve ball. The DNF’d (Did Not Finish) the race here, but that does not mean we as a group need to fail, roll up and wander off like a whipped canine with our tails between our legs. Quite the opposite. The best revenge is success. Consider the radio station, putting that up as planned, one nail in their coffin, do the bar as planned second nail. trust me they’ll be back. Just their return will be on our terms, not theirs.
There’s a new saying on the road that is of us on two wheels. Once they all hated and despised us. Now they want to be us. It started with a TV show of a father son building bikes in Montgomery(funny how that is the name of their town ain’t it?) New York. They go to Daytona Bike week, with a theme bike, get spotted by a producer of Discovery Channel, boom here comes American Chopper. All of a sudden we saw the entire custom bike world open up, and everybody had to have a big bike TV show. But few were real craftsman. More like parts assemblers. There were a few that really bent metal, Indian Larry, Jessie James,(although he let it go to his head) but in reality it was TV , not pure love of a groovy scoot, wide open highway and warm peaceful weather. All of a sudden, us big bad old bikers were everybody’s hero's and idols. Really, before , most people would run ten directions from any one of us, call us users, retards, perves and worse.
Its just like us Confederates, then and even now. before 1979 and the premier of the Dukes of Hazzard era, southern culture and life, was nothing more than a thought of a population of racists, bigots, and people not wrapped too tight. Although we who are southern either through ancestors or living there still we know different, but Yankees didn’t. The only group really busting tail in preservation of southern culture was us in the Knytes, Hazzard County Radio, was on the air through syndication long before Dixie Broadcasting.com , which celebrates its anniversary of ten years. Hazzard County Radio? Celebrating this month, 25 years planting southern seeds in the heads and souls of America, nationwide. Even before the Internet and computers.
Even then we had domestics here in both twin Falls and even Hagerman discounting us and thinking the combination of guys and gals in a radio studio, on film with a ride, and our efforts were just blowing smoke. When ye old General Lee rolled into Hagerman that entire attitude changed. That would never have happened if we had just rolled over and died like all too many wanted us to do. What we did is grit our teeth, calmed our tempers and turned that fire into passion for what we as a club and many of us as individuals desired and yearned for. As such, the brewing created enough of a raging inferno, that Hollywood took notice, a few members of DOH’s original cast took notice, and look at us now, 15 of us, turned into 50,000 of us nationwide, but that only happened because we said keep pushing. Ignore the doubters and antagonists , and the quitters.
Even years ago, even when I was able to walk around with $2,000.00 in my pocket at any time, I still dressed in my greased grub jeans, T shirt, and had a pinch behind cheek and gum. Sure some conditions have changed. My personal environment changed, but dig this, I am still the same person I was then and now. Only a bit tougher and even a bit more grown up due to service in the USMC, as well as the club all of you helped. I thank you for that, but the bottom line here is we always succeed. Sure we at times need to reach out of our area to get human and other resources , since all too many like this latest group of honeys that pulled up short, think there’s something sinister involved, but who cares? They will be back, they will want to be involved again. But the same attitude of safety is today , that wasn’t years ago. In our early days inviting gals to the house for a recording session with the band(Jimmy Mac and The Black Diamonds) at our(my) house, was not seen as something or a place of danger or fear. They’d come up, grab a brew and groove on the tunes. Today, forget even one gal not getting the shakes about coming into the Lair here(Wolf’s Lair is the place where the Lady the helicopter from Airwolf was kept inside the mountain. Watch the reruns on Hulu.com) Oh no , can’t do that. You think that I was not knowledgeable of that when this latest group of hotties showed up? Joni, went to McDonalds as well as Anchors etc, in her ride(Mandy’s car) because she did not want to be alone with this big bad wolf. Thought is, if you can’t be alone with me here, what about doing a ride all the way to Sturgis on a bike? What about travel to Las Vegas for SEMA, NAB and other events, not to mention being on air here on our radio station? The next question if you didn’t like what you saw the first time, why did you come back not just twice but three times? Its called Yankee fear and its just one of many northern’s faults but what do ya’ll do?
To wrap this so I can catch some sleep before festivities in the morning, lets not even fear these other people, or their desire to quit even before getting into a full run. I say lets finish what we started and been planning for years. Like I said , that will be the best revenge and watching them and all too many eat crow.
See ya’ll at the Monthly breakfast, at the WaySide.
Quote of the Day:
Resentment is like taking poison and hoping the other person dies.
|Matthew 5:11-12““Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”|
