Hello riders, well it was a very nice day for a ride. It sure felt good to be riding  again.  Ted Moody and I meet at the  Chevron for a great ride.  We went south to tags and had a good breakfast. There were other bikers there too. They left a little bit after we ordered.
 
Ted and I were going to go south a ways to see if there was a  different way home. We didn't fine one, so we made a u turn and went back to  Coolage  and right on the 267 to Florence. We got home at 10:00 after our side trip, about three hours and 116 miles. The weather was nice and company was great. I hope that Ted will join us more this winter.
 
See you all in the next few months.

Good morning Angels....
 
Just wanted to bring you up to date on some really nice news regarding "Dollar Bill". You will remember that it was just a year ago that Bill suffered a heart attack and died here in Idaho as a group of the Angels were embarking on a ride in this area. It was a sad loss to all of us, as was the passing of John "Blue" Kelty previously.  But the spirit of the Angels persists and I certainly hope that I will continue to see evidence of their legacies posted here. I know that is what they would want.
 
Speaking of legacies, we just received a note from Fran Barrington with news of the birth of a new grandson. William Reilly Barrington was born August 23rd, 2016 (one year from the date of Bill's passing). He arrived weighing 8 pounds 7 ounces and is 21" long. Fran reports he has a fair amount of brown hair and is a "healthy and beautiful baby". She added that Grampa Bill is smiling, and I am certain that is true. Fran is in Oregon with the family but will soon be returning home. I know all of you join us in sending her our congratulations and prayers.

 About the Blue's Angels

The “Blue’s Angels” was formed in 1995 by John H. Kelty. The name of the group came from John’s original 1993 1500 cc blue Goldwing which he 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 in Apache Junction, AZ. and four from West Phoenix. There are now over 40 active, enthusiastic guys and girls. Every time “Blue” met a new person at Golden Vista he asks “why don't you buy a motorcycle?” Many did!

Blue’s Angels strive for comradeship while doing a fairly dangerous hobby and enjoying every minute of the time we ride. Blue loved people and wanted them to all feel the joy of riding as he did.

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 remained "THE MAN"

Unfortunately after over 20 years of riding nearly 250,000 miles, Blue succumbed to cancer on November 11, 2014. Up until his last days he loved to ride and it was his hope, as well as his families, that the Angels remain together and continue riding and loving the open road as much as Blue did.

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
