 Blue's Angels Updates (Click HERE to see old postings)

July 26th to GlobeUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
I just had a call from Blue with a report on today's ride... Before I give you that information, I need to let you know that Blue had a scare this past week. He was admitted to Banner Heart Hospital mid week for one night. His Doctor thought that Blue had suffered a heart attack and sent him to the specialists and they in turn have determined that it was not a heart attack but cannot explain why he was experiencing the weakness symptoms.  Blue is home now and says he is feeling better but not up to riding. Please keep him in your prayers....
 
So, today there were two bikes with three up. I don't know if Redshirt or BJ lead, but know you know who rode. They departed at 7 am and were home by 10, accumulating 105 miles.  It was 95 at departure and 102 when they rode back in.
 
I will do my best to keep you posted on how Blue is feeling. Right now he is missing his smokes, but has quit and is determined to stay off them... Say a little prayer for that as well..
 
10-4!

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.

 
 

 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
