I just got back from the Rumble and Roar exhibition. We used it as an excuse for a family day out.
So. Much. Fun. Free beer and chili cookoff, amazing motorcycles, and even more fun when they learn that you're in the market for a new motorcycle.
I think I found my next motorcycle. I've never heard of a Saxon before. Apparently they do custom bikes, but they've got a few that they put out as common inventory.
I also got to see the legendary marines motorcycle. It's "Oh my God" amazing in person.
Some story on this bike...
Motorcycle Bio By Larry Tremblay Sr
I shall never forget that day in April of 2006 when two Marines came to my home to inform me of the death of my beloved son Joey in Iraq. During the two to three months that followed Joey's death an idea formed in my mind to build a tribute to Joey that would make him proud and that everyone who saw it would always remember Joey and all the other young men and woman who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. It is in this vein that the Marine (Tribute-Memorial) Bike was started.The Marine Tribute Bike was built for one,dedicated to a few and in honor of all who have fallen defending our great nation. My son Joey and I used to spend time together watching Jessie James on the Discovery Channel and the Biker Build Offs. We both enjoyed and admired the skill and talent it took to build a motorcycle that I thought this would be a great monument to the son I so loved and missed.
There are many people and companies that have helped this idea come to life. This bike could not have been built without help, talent and support from the following: Powder Teck of New Windsor N Y, RPM Custom Choppers Newburgh N Y, Hannoush Jewelers Newburgh Mall Newburgh N Y,JB Garfix Newburgh N Y, Custom Machinery Newburgh N Y,Dryers Welding Service New Windsor N Y,Moto Insanity Marlboro N Y, Richards Military Exchange Port Jervis N Y, To all those listed above, and to all I may have left out by mistake, my heartfelt thanks. I could not have accomplished this tribute to my son and the many others without you. To my son Joey I know you are looking down from above and smiling. I hope you are proud of the bike,as we are so proud of you. I will hold you in my heart forever.
Until we meet again,
I love you,
Corporal Joseph S Tremblay
Corporal Bryan J Richardson
Both 23 ,both killed by EID Bryan in March of 2006 Joey in April of 2006
I can't wait until spring. It can't get here fast enough for me. I miss my ride. _________________ Opinions? Great! Flames? Oh well. I probably deserve it.
