2014 January Meeting Recap at Pappas Bar-B-Q 26 Jan.
The weather couldn't have been better with little wind and temps in the mid 70's. As a result this may have been our best
attended meeting ever. Most arrived early to have lunch and look over the various assortment of motorcycles and the one scooter. The king of the show was Keith Martin's 1400cc Vincent Black Shadow which
he kick started for the crowd standing around admiring it. The oldest bike there was a '40 HD Knucklehead. There was also a '47 Knucklehead and a '59 Pan Head.
Clay Walley, our returning president for 2014 started the meeting at 2pm. Surprisingly considering the large number of people in attendance there were no new members or guests present. Clay
announced that Dave Griffiths celebrated his 50th birthday at the NOVA for brunch in oak cliff prior to the meeting.
Clay had Stanley Miller talk about the upcoming National Texas Road Run, April 14,15,16 in the Hill Country sponsored by the Cherokee Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America (AMCA). To signup

Phil Dansby, aka Capt. Commando told a story about trading his '79 Ducati 900 Super Sport that he has owned since he bought it new from Doc Storm for a '79 Ducati Darmah that the owner has owned since it was
also brand new. The only real advantage for Phil is that the Darmah has a little button that starts the motor.
Our next meeting is at Audrey's MotoLiberty on Feb. 23rd.
