For those of you who use your roster as a means of keeping in touch with other Angels, I have just been advised that Carroll Johnson has change his e-mail address. If you want to update your records it is now:
June 19th - Ride to PetroUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
Two Bikes........ Two Trikes  .... and a total of 5 riders departed from the Goldfield Chevron at 7 am. This was the first ride Blue had made on his just rebuild Harley. He is pleased with the way it performs and if I may quote... "It will fly, but not off the ground", referring, I am certain, to the video I forwarded this morning featuring the car that flies...
He retrieved his bike from Superstition Harley on Friday and reports that the price tag for the repair was $4,385.68, of which he had to pay $50.00.  Again I quote... "Thank God for extended warranty and Service Manager Scott who made them pay"  Apparently the insurance provider was not going to honor the claim... Blue is very happy to have had both.
Blue led while Red Shirt rode shotgun. Blue set the pace and reports that they never once exceeded 70 mph.
The group returned to the resort at 11 am. Temperature variation from the departure to return was 17 degrees..... 85 at 7 and 102 at 11.
Saturday July 12th - The Cage RideUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).

Blue went in a cage this Saturday because the Harley is in the hospital getting treatment!  Char was able to go too and everyone went to Fountain Hills, Phil’s Restaurant. 

There were 2 trikes, 1 bike, 1 cage, six up.

Phil’s Restaurant was really bad, poor service and food.  Biscuits like hockey pucks.  The server was a real d@#$ h@#$ (that’s a quote from Blue ;)

After the restaurant Blue went on to the national cemetery for a visit with Brother Bill.  It was very hot outside but cool in the cage.

The group left at 7am when it was 88 degrees and was back at 11am and it was 101!  Total miles 135.  Everyone was OK upon return.

Today's Ride to PaysonUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
The Angels went to Payson today to Cross Windows Restaurant.  Red Shirt  lead the way and Blue road shotgun.  There were three trikes, two bikes, with a total of six up.

Blue called the restaurant in advance and Tammy had everything setup with their tables reserved.  Tammy checks in at about 285lbs and is very cute, lots of personality, and loves to hug Blue…

The Angels had great service and food. On the way back they drove through Tonto basin to get gas.  They also stopped in Miami for a water break, then to AJ and home.  Everyone was “OK”!

Departed at 7AM and it was 85 degrees
Returned at 12:20PM and it was 103 degrees
220 Miles traveled

This morning, at 6:30, we met Mike and Sally Craiger at the Chevron for a ride South to Catalina. This time of the year, early starts are important as, even then, it is warm. In fact it was 82 when we rode out of the resort. For us, it was a chance to be with friends and they are working on getting the first 2500 miles on their new Harley. I think they take it in a week or so for service, before they depart on a 3 to 4 week outing.
Today's ride took us down through Florence to the Sunny Side Up. All who ride with the Angels know that is a great place for a morning repast and today was no exception. Mike led down and Wanda and I took the helm on the way home. We came up through Winkleman, then Globe and finally to the barn. As you look at today's photo assortment you will see that on three occasions we were delayed for a few minutes for areas of construction. And there is evidence that Wanda was working to get pictures of the Century Plants in bloom as well as the snowy white blooms of the Joshua Trees. She also captured some unhappy RV'ers as they ran from their motor home as it belched steam. I am thinking they may have had an opportunity this day to ride in one of those really big tow trucks.
It was in the 90's when we returned at mid day. In total, we added 213.4 miles to our travel experience and another 4 hours and 3 minutes of riding time.. Thanks for the invite Craiger's. We are ready most any time....
Al Jeanquart to have surgeryUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
I received this note today from Sandy. Please keep Al in your prayers...
Al will be having knee surgery on July 22, and shoulder surgery on July 31.  He should be better when we go to AZ.  Love Sandy

 About the Blue's Angels

The “Blue’s Angels” was formed in 1995 by John Kelty.  The name of the group came from John’s current 1993 1500 cc blue Goldwing which he  has named “Blue”.   The "Angels" was chosen because all the riders are all such good little boys with their toys, and most of all because we wanted prayer involved as we rode and socialized.
Blue’s Angel's started with six bikes from the Golden Vista Resort and four from West Phoenix.  There are now over 40 active, enthusiastic guys and girls.  Every time “Blue” meets a new person at Golden Vista he asks “why don't you buy a motorcycle?”  Many do!
Blue’s Angels strive for comradeship while doing a fairly dangerous hobby and enjoying every minute of the time we ride.  Blue loves people and wants them all to feel as he does.
In the Spring of 2012, Blue handed the leadership of the group to Bill (Dollar Bill) Barrington who did so with the mutual agreement that it remained "Blue's Angels" and that while he would coordinate the rides and the general direction of the riders, John Kelty remains "THE MAN"

The Angels have no specific restrictions of membership. The only requirement would be that members maintain a safe bike.   All riders are encouraged to complete a motorcycle safety course.  To be an official member one must invest $12.00 to buy a Blue's Angels Cap.  After that huge expense, there are no dues or fees.
The main goals are:
   to keep the group going forever
   to keep it simple and informal
   to keep the prayers flowing for all in need
