You ever have one of those moments..... where the spirit of America overwhelms you?

Boy did I ever..... Last Saturday as I was returning from Rock Springs Arizona ( where I had some apple pie ala mode) I was running 90 on the HD softail while open carrying my Ruger Vaquero SS in my cowboy rig. Man, the weather was perfect, the sky was blue..... I felt like it was just me and God barreling down the plains on horse back. What a PROUD AMERICAN moment. Could be the best 200 mile morning ride ever ! Thank God for those times.

Well thank you Happy !
I was starting to worry that my thread on American Spirit and freedom was being polluted by reprimands, rules and regulation.... Lol. Isn't that why we crossed the pond to begin with.
Hookn it on a pie run is fine by me... No harm no foul.

Next thing I imagine they will tell me is my bars are too high and I am supposed to have turn signals... LMAO
God bless

Some times you just need to get your knees in the breeze! There are times that the faster the breeze, the better... and if you are lucky enough to live in a State where you can legally let that breeze blow through your hair, all the better!

Mine come when we go hiking in the black hills or at Rocky Mountain National Park or similar places where there are very few people to be seen and lots of the outdoor beauty made by our Creator

If you want to find out, maybe you should ask that question on an ape forum.
