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

August 16 - Payson AirportUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
Two Bikes, One Trike and a Cage made up the compliment that departed at 7 am for Payson and breakfast at the Airport. BJ, with his landlady (Sue) drove the cage as he has had eye surgery in the last few days and did not feel comfortable on the trike.
 
Tammy was the server and asked that we say "Hi to all of the Angels". While her smile and service were good, the food was not up to par. The biscuits and gravy were way below their standard and while they offered apologies, they did not give any financial compensation.
 
The group came home via Roosevelt Lake and Globe, with stops at Tonto Basin and the Miami Shell Station.
 
Four hours after a 90 degree departure the temperature had risen by 14 degrees and the riders had added 223 miles to their biking experiences.
 
And that's the news from Angle Headquarters...   If any of those not in Apache Junction have rides you want to share, please let Shutterbug know.

Blue called today with a "short report" but was pleased to be able to say that today he was a part of the group. (First ride in 3 weeks). The weather this morning looked a little iffy with a prospect for rain. So, at 7 am Red Shirt led the group (2 trikes and 1 bike) of four riders out toward Fountain Hills. The going out route took them past Saguaro Lake and it was a comfortable 88 degrees. Denny's was the destination and as is usually the case, the food was good and reasonably priced. BJ rode shotgun which left the rocking chair for Blue.
 
They came home on the interstate and arrived back here at about 10:00. It had warmed up a bit but was still not triple digits (only 96 degrees).. Total miles ridden = 89....
 
As I type this report, a storm is brewing. The wind is picking up and is from the East. It is a little chilly at only 93 degrees.. I am betting we will have a storm tonight....
 
Ride safe everyone.

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!
 
 

 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
