Strange Day
« on: April 01, 2010, 01:27:46 AM »
I took the day off work to roll around a bit. At one of my stops I met a couple of guys who wanted to take some pictures of my C5, Then I answered a bunch of questions they had. That's when they told me they put out a local magazine and wanted to use the pictures and do a small article in a couple of months! I can't believe the attention this bike gets ;D
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

Br. Dannie, if you can find the time between the TV interviews and the trips to Hollywood, I would like to ask you to please consider sending me an autographed copy of the magazine when the article is published about you and your gorgeous Rosie!!!  :D
Long live the Bullets and those who ride them!

Cabo, if they actually do print something I'll be happy to send you a copy, you can hang my picture in your garden to scare away the birds :D, but Rosie always looks good!

I probably know who those guys are.
I bought a blown Bullet engine from a guy that works for a small magazine for bikers in the Little Rock area.
I forget the name of the magazine, but they are based in that area, and they like Enfields.
The guy met is named Robert.

I know who you are talking about, this is a different group just getting started. More of a local intrest type of thing I think. I called the guy about that blown engine, but it was already sold :D

Br. Dannie, I'll hang your picture next to the one of me; it's been hanging out there in Graciela's veggie garden for years!  :D

The guy I met was Rod Lawrence from the Ozarks life magazine, I remember the riding south mag, it was pretty good as I recall.
