Congratulations are in order!!!

Harlo and his wonderful gal, Haley got married a few weeks back and us Flatlanders represented with a few of us showing up to drink the beer. Congrats to you both, sounds like Hawaii was a great time!

Hey, you two remember Haley's birthday weekend ealier this summer? Did ya ever see the pic of your menage a trois?

Tumpy's new toy.

It's a roller!
Red Good from Cycle One Mfg. delivered this, in pieces, to our boy Tumpy down at the Boiling Springs Campground this past August where about 30 of us met for a weekend of riding and camping.
Of course with a bunch of chopperheads hangin around drinking beer for 3 days, we just had to see what it looked like altogether!!!

Benefit Auction a Success!!!

The auction we held on TCU forum raised just over $4100 dollars for our friend Justin McMullen's children.

A large group of TCU and members met up in Decatur, IL for the Hunnert Car Pile Up last weekend, staying at a nearby campground.

Saturday afternoon a huge bald eagle was circling our campsite.
Later that night we said a few words about our friend and lit off a sky lantern in his memory.
He was definately there in spirit!

HUNNERT CAR PILE UP - 10th and FINAL year - Sat Oct 8, 2011

This weekend is the Hunnert Car Pile Up in Decatur, IL. It marks the 10th and final year for this highly anticipated hot rod show. A one day event with all kinds of rad cars, bikes, vans, art, etc. Members of,, the HAMB board, ChopCult, etc. tend to make a weekend of it, staying in the area and attending the pre party in Clinton, IL on Friday and then a few of the post parties in the area, saturday night. Guaranteed to be a great time and kind of a final fling before winter decends upon us here in the midwest, when we spend all our time wrenching and building instead of riding. One more day of work and my weekend begins!!!! Are ya ready Flatlanders???

Here are some pics from last year:

Already missin' ya Justin....
RIP my friend
