How you found us: CLSB DECAL
           
It's OFFICIAL!

I will be starting the New local Chapter of CLSB in Arkansas.. My last day at Heroes West & in Illinois will be September 4th 2008...

I would just like to extend a great deal of gratitude to all the great members here that I have come in contact with. This site is near and dear to my heart and I look at it as extending the CLSB family..

Thank you to all, I will truly miss you all and hope to visit often or run into you at a track day, race or ride somewhere.. I will always "ROCK THE CLSB" decal.

If ever riding through the Bentonville area "look us up at Beef O'Bradys Family Sports BAr, Bentonville, AR

Please still hang at Heroes West as I will do my veru best to ensure they show CLSB some love.....

Thanks again "SmokinJohn"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.
