While riding my Harley, I swerved to avoid hitting a deer, lost control and landed in a ditch, severely banging my head.
Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible pulled up with a very beautiful women who asked, “Are you okay?”
As I looked up, I noticed she was wearing a low cut blouse with cleavage to die for…
“I’m okay I think,” I replied as I pulled myself up to the side of the car to get a closer look. She said, “Get in and I’ll take you home so I can clean and bandage that nasty scrape on your head.”
“That’s nice of you,” I answered, “but I don’t think my wife will like me doing that!”
“Oh, come now, I’m a nurse,” she insisted. “I need to see if you have any more scrapes and then treat them properly.”
Well, she was really pretty and very persuasive. Being sort of shaken and weak, I agreed, but repeated, “I’m sure my wife won’t like this.”
We arrived at her place which was just few miles away and, after a couple of cold beers and the bandaging, I thanked her and said, “I feel a lot better, but I know my wife is going to be really upset so I’d better go now.”
“Don’t be silly!” she said with a smile, while unbuttoning her blouse exposing the most beautiful set of boobs I’ve ever seen. “Stay for a while. She won’t know anything. By the way, where is she?”
“Still in the ditch with my Harley, I guess.”

Five intrepid individuals braved the bitter cold, howling winds and driving rain to head to the far reaches of the Western Suburbs (Addison?) to indulge in a delicious luncheon meal at Muggs-N-Manor Bar & Grill.
Hugh Brandt, George Gauss, Bob Graeff, Bill Homick and I enjoyed a delicious banquet of broasted chicken dinners and perfectly prepared grilled, ground beast sandwiches served with various sides. These delicacies, as well as brewed concoctions hereafter referred to as ‘beer or ale’ were expertly presented to us by Jodi, a very dedicated “Serving Wench” whose enthusiastic devotion made sure our needs for condiments did not go unfulfilled and that our goblets did not fall empty.
As always, good food, good friends and good conversation made for a “GREAT TIME.”

Just returned from Des Plaines Honda where I got to sit on the new Wing. As an observation seat-height feels like it is about 1″ taller than my 2013 and just by sitting on it I can’t tell if it is any lighter than mine. I opened the side cases and they are even smaller than they look from the outside. Dash layout is a lot cleaner looking than mine because there are a lot fewer buttons. GPS screen looked nice and bright and better placed than mine. Also I found the crash-bars. They are under black plastic covers and would only need replacing (the covers, not the bars) if you are rolling when you drop it and scratch them. When questioned they (DPH) told me that they laid it down and just like the previous models no plastic touches and is damaged. Got to hear one run outside and it sounds about the same as mine.

Monday, January 29, 2018, 2:35 PM. I just returned from a drive to Waterford Wisconsin. While you were all snug in your beds avoiding this cruel winter weather, Hugh Brandt and I trekked our way North to The Bunker DMZ to sample their Spam Burgers. We did this to make sure that the preparation of this delicious treat remains up to their prior high standards, so that you, our fellow LRW riders, will not be disappointed and depressed if things have changed and you are served a sub-standard sandwich on your next visit. This is just one example of the lengths we (Hugh & I)will go to so that your expectations of a special and tasty lunch are met.

January 1, 2018, JPC Jack Frost Run, held at the ThornWood Restaurant in Wood Dale starting at 11 a.m. featuring their full menu and a cash bar.
Attached are photos of some of the Cruisers who came out in the bitter cold to party and converse with their fellow Cruisers at this, the first club function of the year.
The event was hosted this year by Janet and Al who, in addition to hosting the 50/50 drawing and awarding of door prizes also announced that later this year (2018) the Jerseypine Cruisers Motorcycle Touring Clue would be celebrating its 40th Anniversary.
We then observed a moment of silence for our recently departed JPC Co -Founder Gary Cooper and our member Tom Kearney.
Cruisers, as always, remember the past, but the JPC family also looks towards our future. We are also excited about the upcoming 2018 events and to the above
referenced 40th anniversary celebration.
Thanks to all who attended.

The Party was held at the Rose Garden Café in their festive banquet room. Restaurant on Saturday, December 9th. After l called every member, 35 guests attended. The room was beautifully decorated and we had a cash bar, a delicious buffet style dinner, and Chocolate ice cream served with a variety of holiday treats from guests.
Before dinner a moment of silence was observed to honor the memory of our two recently departed JPC members and friends, Tom Kearney and Life Member and Co-Founder Gary Cooper.
Party favors supplied to all who attended were handmade cocoa/coffee stirrers. We enjoyed listening to Christmas music and dancing to the music played by our favorite DJ, Lenny. Raffles were 50/50 cash and 3 Holiday Treat mugs.
Lenny again provided his DJ services and there was good food, good spirits, good company and good times had by all. If you weren’t there you missed a good one!
Special thanks to my Co-Chair Bill Mumford, and all the people that brought the delicious appetizers and desserts, and all that attended the party. We all had a great time. Have a safe and Happy New Year.
