Goody

The story with the motorcycle reminds me that there were a number of our brothers who were riders. Like Al Cohen (VT Maint) the motorcycle rider.  I seem to recall a story that to save time & money going to work he purchased a cycle.  Planned his route meticulously, really shined up his new ride & when the special day came he jumped on his bike & took off for work, got about half a mile when he was attacked by a dog. After kicking & scrambling out of its reach he turned around, went home & placed a FOR SALE ad on the bike.  Then there's Helmut Haub (our own Evil Knievel), genius & biker who bought a motorcycle from some Hasidim in Borough Park Brooklyn.  And, Scotty Etheridge who passed much too too soon. He loved his hog.  Our guys are very diversified, it ain't just TV.

And let's not forget Tony Alred (Control Maint.) who bought a shiny new cycle,
built homemade saddlebags out of Plexiglas! and on his second trip to the B.C., he hit a bump and the Plexiglas all came apart and he lost everything he had in the saddlebags! He kept on riding, though... until he got tired of it, then bought a brand new shiny YELLOW Cadillac!
