I am taking advantage of my liberties on this site to share with you a ride we enjoyed this past Sunday. It has been a long time coming, but the weather finally allowed some of the group Wanda and I now share miles with to wear a little tread from our tires.
 
Five bikes with ten up met at 1:30 with intentions of riding to Hagerman where we would enjoy a late lunch. Our route would start us out on the old Highway 30 going east through Filer and then to Buhl. From there we diverted over to the river road that parallels the Snake river and continues on into the Hagerman Valley. I forget the name of the restaurant/bar where we had lunch but know I can find it again and will, as they had fantastic finger steaks and onion rings. We were able to find a table that accommodated us all and our time together was terrific.
 
The return ride took us South of 30 on a loop that included a stop at Balanced Rock. I cannot believe that we lived here for so many years and have never been here before, but I just cannot remember seeing this previously. In any case, it was a good diversion and took just enough time that by the time we rode back into Buhl, a stop at the local creamery for an ice cream cone was in order. Wow! I never should have stopped here as they have way too many choices and I fear I will have to return to try more of the selections. My choice today was called "Elk Tracks". YUM!
 
The group rode back into Twin Falls around 5 pm having traveled close to 100 miles. That was just right for the first ride. Wanda and I are talking about getting out on Thursday. The temperature is supposed to be approaching 90. Our young riding companions will all be working, so I suppose we will have to take our chances on finding our way home unassisted.

 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
