Today I joined up with some of our HOG guys and we participated in a group ride with the BACA group from this area. There was 65 bikes and about 70 riders and passengers. The BACA spokesman gave us the rundown on their mission in this area. We all gathered at 11am today north of Regina Saskatchewan. We all left at the same time and in one group, which was amazing to watch as we rode down the highway. I was very near the rear and the bikes looked like they were stretched out for a good half mile ahead. We rode about 30 miles to the town of Southey where there was a trailer set up with drinks and hotdogs. We spent about an hour there and the different groups of rides introduced themselves. There was a very strong wind a blowing from the SE, at a sustained force of 45 miles an hour, with gusts up to 55. It made for a hanging on and paying attention kind of ride. As we rode down the highway we turned off the highway and rode into 4 towns, down their main streets just to show the presents of BACA . We sure got some looking at as our group of 65 bikes cruised through the towns. So we ended back home with 180 total miles and wind blown, but well worth the effort for a great cause. Hope you enjoy the info and some pictures. Paul A.

May 21, 2016 Ride UpdateUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
Hello Angels, what a good day for a ride. There was 4 bikes and Jay and Dottie. We waited to see if our new lady riders would show up. So at 7:00 we took off. Dennis lead and Max and Linda, and their son Max, then me, with Jay & Dottie in their car bringing up the tail. We headed for Butcher Hook for a good breakfast. Max,s son wanted to see Roosevelt lake. So we gave him the grand tour, stopping at the dam, and then went on 88 behind the dam. I enjoyed that to for I had never stopped back there. We then went to Globe and the shell for fuel. We traveled about 183 miles in 5 hours. There will be a ride Wed 25 and Sat the 28th. But I won't be there, for I have a Doc appointment, and Sat I have to pick up a couple at the airport, Hope to see someone June 1st at 7:00. Road Captain Cowpoke

It is true, you don't ride all year around, and even in the good months, the weather can sometimes be challenging, but we do ride. Today was one where we were a bit wind challenged. The temperature at departure  (8:30 am) was in the mid 50's and the wind gusts may have been a similar number. Three bikes with 5 up rode the Interstate to Wendell and the Farmhouse Restaurant. This is a Basque run eatery and I love their toast. The meals are always more than two people should consume, so Wanda and I shared. Our son Steve and friends Dallas and Tammy rode on to Boise while we rode down into the Snake River Canyon, visiting Niagara Springs State Park and then over to Buhl where we picked up old US 30 and back into Twin. It was not a long ride (63.7) miles but we managed to chew up the majority of the morning. By the time we arrived back here, it was not so windy and in the 70's..  A very good day and I think you will enjoy the pictures.
 
I do hope that some of you who are not in AZ, will report on your outings. I am surprised that not all of the Arizona rides are not being posted on the site. And I am sure that the hundreds who regularly receive or review these postings are disappointed that there are not more pictorial postings.

 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
