You can tell we live in Nebraska - 80 on Wednesday, snow then rain Thursday through Sunday.  
Nebraska - the Good Life!  Not much good riding weather, yet, so we're all still waiting for some.  
The April meeting will be Sunday, April 13th, at Barnstormers in Norfolk, eating at 12:00, with Butch
and Linda Grey hosting.  I had a Sunday dinner ride with Larry and Al - went about 200 miles.  
Good ride and good food.  Our Goldwing membership has been renewed for 2014.   Not much news 
to write about this time, so Happy Easter early and see you Sunday at the meeting. 

'Til then, happy thinking about riding

Hi all Chapter “ C “ ,

How time flies. Another month has passed and I have not been able to roll out the trike 
at this time. The days I have some time, are always the days that are not good weather. 
Up and down as the Nebraska days go this time of the year.

A group of riders from the Fremont Chamber, that have a spring and fall ride, have 
set their spring trip for this year. We are going to the Harley plant in Kansas City. 
There are about 50 Harleys, some BMW bikes, some Yamahas and 2 Goldwings most 
times. My normal position on this ride is at the end of the pack. I like being at the end 
so I can enjoy the ride and not worry about someone in front or behind. I have gotten 
LOST taking this position, because no one waits for the slow guy. Generally these rides 
are fun and we have gone to some interesting locations over the last 10 rides or so. A tour 
of a manufacturing plant or something related to business is always a part the ride. Last 
year a ride up to the Victory plant was scheduled but was cancelled after they found out it 
was mostly Harley riders. I guess they thought we would see some select in their plant.

Well the NE / SD Rally is coming and hopefully as many as possible will be able to join in. 
Again the dates are June 19, 20, 21 in Ogallala. Make your reservations ASAP as rooms are limited.
Hope to see as many as possible at the monthly get together 4/13 .

Safety          
                    Here it is the first of April and time for the annual early spring reminder. It does not
matter if you are on two,three or four wheels, look out for the slow moving farm machinery.
