RONHIX in the Sunday Paper

If anyone still has a copy of the Sunday 9/18 Daily Hearld, Ron Hix has his pic on PAGE 1 of the neighbor section. There is a blurb about the Christian Motorcyclists Association. At least we are getting some goop press for once!

All hail our new celebrity!!

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

Cool, Ron.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

No pics here, but here is the article.

I have a copy set aside. Let me know if you are going to be up at Strats on wednesday or out this weekend on the "Group Leader" ride.

Goop press is better than no press.......

Congrats Ronnie.

I just threw that paper away yesterday (trash day). If I'd known anyone in the article was a member here, I would've kept it. I hope you can get a copy...

Sorry I just found this thread. I joined after it was up.
