BACK BEAUTY 2 update !

Here is another victim of Black Beauty 2. On the bike is Raul, a long time family friend. Me, Raul and his brother Ruban have been friends since I was about 7 or 8 years old. I finally got Raul riding not too long ago. He spent a good part of the first day just learning stop and goes ( He's the first guy I know to forget to put his foot down when he stopped ). I was a little scared at first but on the 2nd day he was off and running. We even had him out on the back country roads riding. Well as you guessed it he's hooked. He hopes to have his own bike one day. Until then he'll ride BB2 whenever he's in town visiting.

This is BB2's second victim Terry. Terry is a friend and neighbor. Terry was telling me one day that he would like to start riding. When I asked him if he ever rode before he said yes. From the first time he got on the bike you could tell he had ridden. He's a great rider and we have been out a few time on some nice long day rides. We try to ride every Thursday when the weather is good. The next few pics are of the last ride he and I went on. We encountered this very large bird on route 373 just north of Munster, Tx. Luckly we saw him from a distance on the road and were able to slow down and pass him safely. Well I just couldn't help myself. I had to get a pic of a TX size bird ( Everything is big in TX. ). I got as close as I could without pissing off the bird too much. This next pic was taken at Saint Jo, TX. Not much there but it has a neat little town square that's almost like a ghost town . This last pic was taken in Forestburg, Tx. It too is like a ghost town, but at least there is a gas station there. The weather was great and so was the ride. Terry really enjoys riding and he's great to ride with. I'm sure I'll have a lot more pics of rides to come. I might even call it ET Rides ( ET, short for Elio n Terry ). Hey, that just might make for a good weekly ride segment. And we could even have guest riders like... Arnold Schwartzenaeger( but he'll have to get his license first ), Jay Leno, Peter Fonda......... OK, Ok I'll Wake Up. We'll just have to settle for guest riders like Marko, Martha Babe, Mark the Honda man with his side kick : The Marlboro Man (Don), Psycho Gary, The HOOTER Man ( TOM ) and if we can get him to take a day off Henry the ....... ? ( we will soon have a name for him ). So stay tuned for further datails on this new and upcoming segment. If you wish to appear as a guest please write to:

Ok you guys. You keep asking for more BIKES AND BABES pics. So here you go. Hope you like them. This first one was taken at Sneaky Petes. It's on Lewisvile Lake in Texas. During the summer it's a hot place to check out babes! This next pic is of my Warrior ( Oh yeah ! and a very Hot Girl on it ! ) This pic was taken in my garage. The next few pics were also taken in my garage. How I Love My Garage ! The same girl is on one of my friend's Texas Chopper. It's a great Bar bike ! I have had to ride it home for him a few times when he has had too much to drink. At least he calls me when he knows he's had too much. And it's fun to ride. Who knows maybe one day I'll get a chopper or build one. I know you guys are wondering who the girl is. Well, I'll just keep you guessing. And No I will not set you up with her. She's married ( Ok stop your crying ! ).
Here is Mark with a few of the Ticket Girls. As you can see he's trying to look Studly. Lets see, what's your favorite color, yellow or white. Boy, tough choice when looking at this pic.

I can't remember her name but she's one of the girls we go see at Twin Peaks. She's very sweet and YES she loves to ride motorcycles. She once said she would like me to take her for a RIDE ( YEAH BABY ) !
This is Kimberly. She's my Favorite ( All the girls that work there are nice ). I mostly ask for her when she's working. She always gives me a big hug when we show up. And she always has a story to tell. She's up front and we know most of her life story. She's GREAT !
Tom and I at Twin Peaks. As you can see by our faces we are having a good time ( Wouldn't you ? ).
This is at HOOTERS in Fort Worth. I think they wanted me. But I played hard to get ( Somebody please wake me up ! ).

Ok, I leave you with this last pic of Me, Candy, Jackie and ?... ( WOW, I must be getting old if I can't remember a good looking girl's name ). Well I hope you liked the pics. I'll have some more pics on a later day. I hope to get some more pics of the Twin Peaks girls'.
