Mini Road Run:
The Diamond Chapter 9th Annual Mini Road Run was held June 30th in downtown Hot Springs. Rides meeting was at 12:45 and the flag dropped at around 1:00. We had fourteen riders.  We went down Central Ave. due to the traffic on Central I chose to change the route .   
We went to the top of West MT. for a break and let the real small bikes catch up. Then back down the mountain to back roads and then to Gulpha Gorge for the club meet and awards. Only one bike was put on the trailer. We had a great sixteen mile ride and the weather was good.                                                                                                                        
 Meeting was held, see minutes for details.
 Linda  handed out awards. The food was great and the ice cream got a little soft.

Rock City Harley Davidson Grand Opening:   
Rock City Harley Davidson Grand Opening in Little Rock was July 20th. The new dealership is over 43,000 square feet building. I believe it is the largest Harley dealership in Arkansas. Beautiful building, beautiful show room. Go check it out when you can. They had several venders and the wall of death and the globe for entertainment , plus door prizes and lot to do. We had a great day even in the heat.

Closing Comment:
Sure is nice to have weather in the lower 80’s in July. Better do some riding before it gets hot again. 
Again ‘The Antique Motorcycles in the Park’ is only a few weeks away so thinking about it.
Do not forget the sun screen. If you want to ride Let me know, We ride at least once a week.
Ride Em, Don’t Hide Em !
