Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing the Mt. Baker Chapter HOG members, Harley-Davidson Bellingham employees, owners LJ & Robin Agnew, and new owner Greg Head a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Wreaths Across America

A friend and HOG member from Fairfax Virginia asked us to post the information for this non-profit organization honoring the soldiers who have served their country.

Hundreds of Thousands of Wreaths will leave Maine on Dec 5th heading to Arlington cemetery and other military cemeteries around this Great Nation. Some will show up someplace near your home town. Now What? They need volunteers like you, your family, and your friends to help place wreaths on head stones of our military heroes on Dec 12th. I believe most locations start around 10:00 AM and take only a couple of hours, but this is based on how many Wreaths the location receives and how many volunteers are there to place them. My HOG Chapter will be out again at the Quantico and some of my friends are going to Arlington

This will be time well spent and some of you will have a tear in your eye, when you look back and see what we have done for our hero’s
Other ways to assist:
1.Please go to to locate a local cemetery participating.
2.You can also sponsor a Wreath for $15 and have it go to a cemetery of you choice.
3.Write an email or send this to all you know, to fly flags and wave banners for our current Troops, and take time to Honor the past .
I wish all of you a Merry Christmas

H-D Bellingham Employees After Breakfast

The Mt. Baker Chapter HOG officers cooked breakfast for current owner LJ Agnew, new owner Greg Head, and all the shop employees for all they do for the chapter and taking care of their customers.

This photo is of Gordie, Sasha, and Kelly after they had breakfast and before they had to go to work.

As the past director I helped serve with Lorie, Dave M, Jeannie, Larry M., Mike G. Dave L., and Jan. It was a pleasure to do something nice for the shop and the employees.

An Award for Billie Marrs from Harley-Davidson Bellingham

During last evening's Mt Baker HOG meeting, Angie Haynes presented my wife Billie with an award from the dealership for her years of service to H-D Bellingham. Billie responded that it is the people of HOG that make the organization and she encouraged HOG members to get behind the new owner and chapter officers and make 2010 the best year ever for the shop and the HOG group.

Motorcycle Wisdom

Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.
Life may begin at 30, but it doesn't get real interesting until about 70 mph.
You start the game of life with a full pot of luck and an empty pot of experience. The object is to fill the pot of experience before you empty the pot of luck.
If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.
Saddlebags can never hold everything you want, but they CAN hold everything you need.
The only good view of a thunderstorm is in your rear view mirror.
Don't ride so late into the night that you sleep through the sunrise.
Sometimes it takes a whole tank of fuel before you can think straight.
Never hesitate to ride past the last street light at the edge of town.
Never do less than forty miles before breakfast.
One bike on the road is worth two in the garage.
Young riders pick a destination and go. Old riders pick a direction and go.
Whatever it is, it's better to do it in the wind.
Two-lane blacktop isn't a highway, it's an attitude.
People are like motorcycles; each is customized a bit differently.
The best alarm clock is sunshine on chrome.
A friend is someone who'll get out of bed at 2 am to drive his pickup to the middle of nowhere to get you when you're broken down.
Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt at 70 mph can double your vocabulary.
If you want to get somewhere before sundown, you can't stop at every tavern.
A long ride can clear your mind; restore your faith and use up a lot of fuel.
If you can't get it going with bungee cords, wire and electrician's tape, it's serious.
Never try to race an old geezer; he may have one more gear than you.
Bikes parked out front mean good chicken-fried steak inside.
You can forget what you do for a living when your knees are in the breeze.
Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out the car window.
There are two types of people in this world; people who ride motorcycles and people who wish they could.

We want as many members of our community as we can, to line the route along Main Street.
