Patriot Guard Ride

Bikers assemble to ride to honor a Veteran

Bikers lineup with American flags to honor a

I had good taste of America yesterday. I attended my 3rd Patriot Guard ride today. One month ago I attended the funeral of Army Sgt. David Staats who was killed in Iraq. Yesterday I attended his father's funeral, who was a Veteran. The father was beaten to death when he stopped his bicycle to ask a women if everything was OK as a heated argument seemed to be going on between the woman and a man. The "man" was upset that someone was meddling in his business and beat Mr. Staats almost to death. He died later in the hospital. azcentral.com/arizonarepublic/local/articles/0206wvservices0206.html

I was one of about 100 motorcycle riders who rode in the funeral procession Thursday. Almost all had American flags flying on the back of our bikes. We rode approx. 15 miles. I saw several Americans along the road, standing with their hands over their hearts as our very long procession passed by. I wanted to say thank you to them for being Patriotic American Citizens. The unfortunate death of the Sgt. and then the senseless death of his father are just heart breaking, but having so many Americans show up to show their respect and support was heart warming.

Last days in Quartzsite

Debbie, the Chicken Dancer
and Me, in Algodones, MX.

Debbie and I rode our Harleys
about 90 miles from Quartzsite
to Algodones for lunch and a
little shopping.

My last stop in Quartzsite, AZ is at the Pit Stop.
On a busy day the Pit Stop services 300-500
RVs, dumping their holding tanks and filling their
water tanks.

I'm shooting these pix through my
front windshield.
