If I were to ride today

I'd find a lazy country road where I'd empty out the stuffing of my jam-packed mind

while I refilled my drained soul with nature & Southern Hospitality & images of well-lived-in homes

I'd wander around till I lost the baggage that tends to weigh me down

and find myself more buoyant and less intense, lighter and breathing again, and way more comfortable in my wind-kissed skin

I'd go after some curves and let my pipes roar proud and thunderous

then sneak softly up the drive of a good friend or old kin for a chat and a shared moment in time

If I were to ride today,

I'd look for nothing

and I know I would find all that I need.

Dear Biker Community,

I just want to say thank you for being such an important part of every community.

I have been to many biker related events and they are all, one way or another, about helping people. It is remarkable how a group that does so much good has such a "bad" reputation. The same is also true of lawyers. Both groups do a tremendous amount for those in need of help, and both groups are not well liked by many in society.

Fortunately, we don't do what we do to gain approval from others. We help others because we can and because we care... damn the idiots who yell loud and do nothing! I rode two weeks ago to Legends Pub in Fayetteville to meet with the Bikers For Bikers Foundation members. They were very kind and honored me for my involvement with the group. Honestly, I was speechless. This group helps injured bikers and needy kids, and they were thanking me?  Mickey Carter is the Founder of this organization. There are no paid employees, all of the donations go in to an account to help injured bikers and needy kids. This is what bikers do. This Sunday we set up a tent at Jacks Corner Tap for the Toys for Tots Run organized by Open Road Cycles. About two hundred bikes were involved in bringing toys for the kids in need. This is just two examples of what bikers are doing all of the time. I can tell you there are numerous lawyers and legal organizations doing the same thing. Donating time, money and goods to helping people in need.

I am very appreciative to be a part of the biker community and the legal community.  To all of you who think bikers and lawyers are bad people, I smile and raise my arm to you in a symbolic gesture of giving you the biggest bird of all, the condor.

Happy Thanksgiving  & Keep it Vertical,



...and I Thank You!



It's almost time to enjoy some time off from work. Time to recharge, hang out with friends and family. Time to share some good food and fellowship.

Next weekend will be a busy one. We will be at the 16th Annual Gaston County Toy run on Dec the 3rd and the Charlotte CBA Toy run on Dec 4th. Hope to scoot by Catawba if time allows.
So rest up, and be ready to ride next week....

Happy Thanksgiving to you all and Thank You to all who Support and Read The Carolina Rider and The Carolina Rider Scene!
