    Thumbs up Was just thinking this morning......

    What a country we live in...we can go out and get on our motorcycles any day we want. We are free to just hop on and ride. There are no boundaries, no check points, no one questioning us what are intentions are. We can just ride. God I LOVE this country!

    Know what you mean, been riding in Europe for the last year. Each country has little differences that you have to watch out for.

    I hear ya. We can just get on the bike and ride anyplace we want to. Course, the 2 ft of snow here has that on hold right now. I have started college this month and the state is paying for everything but the books and I get to use my GI Bill along with it. Ya, America is a great country. No doubt about it. Hopefully come April, the bike will be back on the road, classes will be out shortly, and then its just ride all summer long. Can't wait.

    Stay ever vigilant, my friends. I fear we are not as "free" as we would like to think. Freedom is a fragile thing. Respects

    @madtanker congrats, currently working on my masters, using GI Bill, Army TA, and student loans. @Tom you are right we must never take our freedoms for granted and stand ever ready to defend them.

    Your right Tom. I never take for granted the freedoms and the rights that our Dads and now we have fought for. I think about it each and everyday. Theres not a day that goes by that I don't think about our warriors in harms way and those standing by to go into harms way. But in the mean time, I enjoy the rights and freedoms that we have.
