It s hard to believe it s been 5 years since I began on this Journey, Owning and working this Magazine. I have met and made a lifetime of Friends as I have covered this State each month selling ads, delivering magazines, covering Events and Rally s. Every day is a different adventure and I never know who, what or where this journey will take me. I believe that is the main reason I travel 6000 miles plus each month inside the State and when You travel as much as I do You will meet a lot of People and some very interesting, but I find that the majority of People I meet are Good People with Good Hearts as they are the ones who show up when someone is in need of help in any way. The People who look for a Ride or Run to participate in and be a part of each weekend and while on these Rides and Runs we are losing our Brothers and Sisters and most cases are because of a Distracted Driver (cell phone talking and texting and checking ) and then we do another Ride for the ones killed on the last Ride. Why are we not riding to the Courthouse when the Rider or their Family goes to court to see the driver of the cage who carelessly ran over the Rider get a ticket for failing to yield or illegal turn or just running over the Rider and the Rider was killed or hospitalized for injuries sustained because someone wasn t paying Attention. The Fine should fit the Crime and until we Stand Together and fight this injustice against Motorcycle Riders we will be the victims and I realize most who read this thinks someone else is going to fight this Fight because they don t have time to protect their Rights. For some reason the District Attorneys and Courts in Georgia are not aware of the Motorcycle Riders being killed for no other reason than carelessness by Automobile/Truck Drivers. These People need to lose driving privileges to drive for life in some cases and shorter time for other cases, instead their fined and drive home while texting their friends the turnout in court. You need to get involved and contact/visit your District Attorney s office and let them know you re tired of these People being fined and ask why the sentence is so lenient. GET INVOLVED and Protect Your Rights, many have died to give you those Rights.. Ride Safe Ride Often Ride Free Jerry Mc Thunder Roads Magazine Georgia 2

5 Remember Through Prayer TRUE FRIENDS Proverbs 18:24 states, A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that stickiest closer than a brother. Pictured in this magazine is a true friend Keith Taylor we have been friends since November of We both have loved motorcycles since that time. He is currently in Afghanistan and left his two Harley- Davidsons with me for a year to keep and ride. How many true friends do you have? I am not talking about fair weather friends but true friends. Jesus Christ wants to be your best friend he is one who will never forsake you. The bible says to have friends you must be one! Prayer for the month: Dear Lord, thank you for always being ther for us. Help us to be genuine and have true friends on this earth. Bless our military their families and all who defend our freedoms. Thank you that we can always depend on you.

11 FIRST TIME There comes that time in everyone s life when you encounter that first time. It could be that first kiss, your first motorcycle or perhaps that first time you tried something different! That is exactly what happened on the First annual Jeannine Run for Epilepsy The Georgia Epilepsy foundation had never tried a Biker event as a means to raise funds. Well! Surprise, surprise, to all that attended and helped with this worthy event. Never before has the E.F.G. raised so much with so little effort. About 125 riders left from Hartman cycles and took a 90 mile ride through the beautiful north Georgia Mountains. Their final draw and some of the door prizes were given at Bo docks bar. Here over 200 bikers continued to raise funds through a bake sale and raffles. Then on to the Custom Riders clubhouse for some live music and final raffle. There are way too many volunteers and helpers for us to list with out leaving some one out! Thank you to all it would not have been possible with out your help. Hartman Cycles and the Custom Riders Motorcycle Club began this benefit to honor the memory of Jeannine Hartman, an Angle taken too soon but Never forgotten All total this first time event raised almost $ dollars. This entire amount will go to help assist those that need it most Thru the Georgia Epilepsy Foundation. Next year let s really nock their sox s off.

24 News Bytes THE AIM/NCOM MOTORCYCLE E-NEWS SERVICE is brought to you by Aid to Injured Motorcyclists (A.I.M.) and the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM), and is sponsored by the Law Offices of Richard M. Lester. If you ve been involved in any kind of accident, call us at 1-(800) ON-A-BIKE or visit NCOM BIKER NEWSBYTES Compiled & Edited by Bill Bish, National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM) CONGRESS TO CONSIDER MOTORCYCLE-ONLY CHECKPOINTS In Congressional action on the federal highway bill, a conference committee has been named to consolidate the House-passed bill H.R.4348 and Senate bill S Language to prohibit federal funding of Motorcycle-Only Roadside Checkpoints is contained in H.R.7, and riders are encouraged to contact their congressional members to urge the conference committee to adopt that wording into the final measure. LEGAL BATTLE CONTINUES AGAINST MOTORCYCLE ROADBLOCKS Although the first round in the battle that the law firm of Proner & Proner is waging on behalf of motorcyclists to prevent the New York State Police and other agencies from conducting motorcycle-only checkpoints was won by the police, A.I.M. (Aid to Injured Motorcyclists) Attorney Mitchell Proner believes the judge s ruling overlooked the evidence that motorcyclists were targeted for reasons other than safety. The challenged checkpoints were set up in proximity to well known motorcycle events. Motorcyclists traveling to those events were forced off the roadway by the police, regardless of any individualized suspicion, and compelled to undergo inspections. Although the inspections were termed safety inspections, the majority of tickets issued at the checkpoints were for violations unrelated to safety and the prevention of motorcycle accidents. The attorneys of Proner and Proner are appealing the District Court decision to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals. On March 21, 2012, Mitch Proner filed a lengthy brief arguing that the checkpoints clearly constitute an unreasonable search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment. Oral argument will probably take place this fall with a decision soon thereafter. Proner has vowed to take the fight all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. As a rider himself and a trial lawyer, Proner is intent on defending the rights of all riders who are being unfairly targeted. Our right to be free from unreasonable seizures was a gift from our founding fathers which must be defended regardless of personal cost. SENATOR KLOBUCHAR HONORED FOR PROTECTING RIDERS RIGHTS Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar has been awarded the Motorcycle Industry Council Chairman s Award for her invaluable efforts in stopping the ban on youth ATVs and dirt bikes, and for saving the Recreational Trails Program. For more than two years, the powersports industry was banned from selling youth sized ATVs, motorcycles and snowmobiles, inadvertently swept up in comprehensive legislation known as the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act -- a law intended to protect children from harmful lead content in toys. When our industry needed a champion, Senator Klobuchar rose to the occasion, worked with her colleagues, and led the effort to ensure that youth ATVs, motorcycles and snowmobiles were excluded from the law, said MIC chairman Larry Little. Minnesota manufacturer Polaris hosted the award presentation and the company s president and CEO Bennett J. Morgan also recognized Klobuchar for her work on a critical amendment to the transportation reauthorization legislation known as the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act. Klobuchar, a first-term democrat elected in 2006, also introduced an amendment that sought to restore the Recreational Trails Program, which benefits outdoor recreation including snowmobiling, ATV riding, off-road motorcycling and other off OHV use. PENNSYLVANIA PROPOSAL WOULD MANDATE SAFETY COURSES FOR YOUNG RIDERS A bill aimed at increasing the safety of young motorcycle riders has passed in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and is on its way to the Senate. The legislation sponsored by Rep. Seth Grove (R-Dover Township) would require anyone seeking a Class M (motorcycle) junior driver s license to complete a free stateapproved 15-hour safety course. The course gives younger riders good fundamentals, Grove said. Anyone under 18 would have to take the course, which highlights areas such as drinking and driving, defensive driving, and proper motorcycle techniques. Experience counts when it comes to motorcycle safety, Grove said. Operating a motorcycle is very different than driving a car, and my goal is to increase the safety and awareness of Pennsylvania s young motorcyclists. Also under Grove s bill, riders on a class M learner s permit and under the age of 18 must complete 65 hours of practical Thunder Roads Magazine Georgia 22

25 News Bytes driving and have held the learner s permit for six months before they can take the junior license exam. Currently, riders have to pass a test in order to get a riders permit, which is valid for one year, and then pass a driving test to get a motorcycle license. A course, called the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program, is optional but is not required. If a rider takes and passes the course, they automatically receive a class M license. DIXIE ABATE PROMOTES SAFETY & AWARENESS Alabama riders gathered on April 28 for a police-escorted high-profile ride to the state capitol at high noon to promote May as Motorcycle Awareness Month; This ride should give us publicity to advertise to the driving public that they need to work harder to be aware of us as we share the road with them this season, read an official statement from Dixie ABATE, one of the newest members of the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM). I want to emphasize to drivers of cars and trucks that GOOD DRIVERS JUST DRIVE, Vickie Rumble of Dixie ABATE told WSFA-12 News. Our goal is to completely eliminate motorcycle crashes, whatever their cause. After the rally, Harley-Davidson of Montgomery graciously offered riders a complimentary lunch, and the Barber Motorsports Museum in Birmingham offered them discounted admissions. Dixie ABATE petitioned the NCOM Board of Directors for membership and was approved unanimously during the recent NCOM Convention in Indianapolis over Mothers Day weekend. NCOM proudly welcomes Dixie ABATE as our newest NCOM Member Group, joining in unity with more than 2,000 other rider groups, clubs and organizations; including Motorcycle Rights Organizations (MROs) from nearly 40 States, and 57 Confederations of Clubs from 36 States and three Canadian Provinces. WEIRD NEWS: MAN SUES BMW FOR GIVING HIM A HARD TIME While an extended state of arousal after a motorcycle ride might sound like typical rhetoric of the two wheel crowd, one man is now suing BMW Motorrad USA and the maker of an aftermarket seat after a motorcycle ride left him with an erection that wouldn t go away. The California man is claiming that a BMW motorcycle and a dealer installed custom seat are responsible for causing priapism -- which thanks to TV advertisements for erectile dysfunction we now know is an erection lasting four hours or longer. According to an excerpt from the complaint; Plaintiff was riding his 1993 BMW motorcycle equipped with a Corbin-Pacific seat. The ride lasted approximately two hours each way to plaintiff s destination, after which plaintiff developed a severe case of priapism. Plaintiff alleges that this condition was caused by the ridge-like seat on his motorcycle, negligently designed, manufactured and/or installed by defendants. The suit filed in the Superior Court of San Francisco County seeks damages for lost wages, personal injury, medical expenses, product liability, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Brandy 1 tsp. Triple Sec 1/4 tsp. Salt 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract Melt butter in saucepan. Mix in brown sugar & corn syrup. Stir until sugar is totally dissolved. In a separate small bowl whisk together the eggs, half & half, vanilla extract, triple sec, brandy & salt. Pour both mixtures into a shallow ceramic dish that you can saturate (4) pieces of 1-1/2 inch cut bread at a time. Get skillet hot on medium-high, melt in 2 pats of butter along with a couple dashes of quality olive oil (this helps with even carmelization). Coat your bread well on both sides and add to skillet. Flip when golden brown. Remove and spread generously with honey butter and warm maple syrup. Squirt on some whip cream to really dress it up. Now, this is the way to Daddy s heart. POP S E-Z CREAMY HOT BOW-TIE PASTA 1 Small Box of Large Bow-Tie Pasta - cooked; reserve 1/4 cup of pasta water 1 Roll of Sausage - Mild or Hot; your choice 1 Small Bag of Frozen Peas 1 Small Vidalia Onion; sliced paper thin 2 Tubs of Philadelphia Italian Cheese & Herb Cooking Creme After you fry off your sausage and onion; drain cast iron skillet, but leave just a coating of oil in skillet. Add remainder of ingredients and then add 1 Tub of Philly Cooking Creme, along with 1/4 pasta water, if everything is coated to your liking, then skip adding the 2nd tub. It s all a matter of taste. Serve with hot, French bread sticks. This is some good eatin and it s so easy to prepare. THE OLD MAN S FAVORITE SIMPLY SWEET STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE 5 Cups of Sliced Fresh Strawberries 1/2 Cup Sugar or Splenda 1/2 Cup Orange Juice 1 Roll of Grand s Buttermilk Biscuits Combine strawberries, sugar and orange juice and just let marinade. Squish up with a potatoe masher just a bit to create more of a thicker mixture. Cook your biscuits and when you pull them from oven, sprinkle all over with coarse, large sugar crystals for a sweet bread type of flavor. Butter the inside of your biskits with honey butter and load them up with strawberries and place the tops on. Whisk together 2 cups of heavy whipping cream, 1/4 cup of confectioner s sugar and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract for homemade whip cream and put giant dollops on top of biscuits. Make sure you get lots of juice on the insides of biscuits. Serve hot and fresh. Totally yummy! FATHER S PREFERRED FLIPPED-FLOPPED UPSIDE DOWN BACON PANCAKE 10 Bacon Strips; Coarsely Chopped 1/4 Packed of Brown Sugar 2 Cups of Complete Buttermilk Pancake Mix 1-1/2 Cups Water Maple Syrup & Melted Butter; combined Cook bacon the easy way. Place bacon strips on a rack pan in a 475 degree oven for 15 minutes until super crispy. Remove to paper towels and sprinkle with brown sugar. Combine pancake mix and water just until moistened. Pour into pre-heated cast iron skillet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes. Invert onto a plate warmed in the oven. Melt your butter down and mix it into your maple syrup. The brown sugar bacon goes so good with the sweet pancake; good contrast. Any man will totally love this giant pancake.
