The NTNOA's April '09 Club Meeting
was Sunday, 26 April at 12:30 PM
at Pappas Bar-B-Q
The time for the meeting
was moved to 12:30
to allow members time to attend either the
All British Car Day
at White Rock Lake or the Spring Car & Bike Show at
Up N Smoke in Keller.
The meeting was perhaps the shortest on record
but well attended. Clay gave an update on the status of our raffle bike.
Dean Baker exchanged the new header pipes the club ordered through
British Only because the left pipe
didn't fit. The new pipes arrived this week and fit perfectly. Dean
also fabricated a new license plate bracket that looks much better than what was
on the bike.
Many at the meeting had just come from the All British
Car Day (ABCD) and were on their way to the Car & Bike Show at Up N Smoke but
most rode from Pappas to the ABCD. The weather threatened and although it
was overcast the entire day everyone lucked out and remained dry. There seemed to be more vintage motorcycles at
this year's ABCD event than in previous years.
Many thanks to Dennis Tackett for setting up the
NTNOA display at the ABCD and selling raffle bike tickets. Dennis has devoted
much of his time trailering the raffle bike to events such as this one. Thanks
also to Chris Parry for helping Dennis pack everything up after the show. Dennis
will display our raffle bike next at the
Emporium's Spring Car & Motorcycle Show on Sunday, May 17 from 11AM to 3PM
in Grapevine. Unfortunately, it conflicts with
B.M.O.A.'s New Ulm rallye but should be
well attended. Thanks again Dennis.
Can you believe that people still run out of gas
while riding vintage motorcycles - just ask our VP.
