Ride a Harley, Go to Prison

Which I (kind of) did last week.

The 2013 Florence Prison Run, sponsored by the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, was a blast. It’s all about showing support for brothers inside the “big house” and a bunch of bikers did just that. I can’t say that I know anyone in the custody of the Federal Government at Florence, but did the run anyway.

Wild Hogs

Much like the HAMC Poker Run to celebrate American Legend Sonny Barger’s birthday in October, it was well organized, well executed (sorry…poor choice of words) and welcoming to non-patchholders. Like the previous big-boy ride that I wrote about here, I felt like I should have had a Wild Hogs patch on the back of my cut, though I’m not sure whether I’m the John Travolta or the Tim Allen character. I’d like to think I’m the Martin Lawrence character but know I’m probably not, even though the whole “stay-at-home-writer” thing rings true. My book was published in December though, so I’ve got that on him.

I am comfortable in the fact that I am not the William Macy character, despite my preference for Apple products.

Some pics from the ride…

My bike in the middle. Hanging my helmet on the handlebar after parking, I must admit I felt a little like one of the CHiPs guys. Ponch or John, I'm not sure...Probably John.

There were a couple patch vendors on site, one run by a lovely older couple in their travel trailer. Their inventory was HUGE. I bought this one. $7 that included sewing it on my vest.
