Fellow Club Member,

A senior moment keep me from informing yesterdays club meeting attendees that John Kerins, due to medical reasons, has his 2013 R1200RT (only 2,359 miles) for sale. John also has three very stylish Taylor’s Leatherwear and Fur Company motorcycle jackets for sale.

After some double vision issues it was discovered the John has cancer on the muscle that controls his right eye. He has completed radiation and is currently doing chemo. I had coffee with John last week, his spirits are high and he’s determined to whip this. John can be reached at 317-965-6165 for bike, jacket info, or just to “hi”.

Texas Visit

Dee and Mic Reeves visited club members John and Lucinda Cook and Rick Nelson in the hill country of Texas for a week of great riding this January.  Most of the rides involved something like this water crossing, or waiting for cows to move out of the road.

Any other intrepid Indy Club riders are welcome to come visit.

A note from Michelle Clark

Dear BMW Friends,

As our first day of 2016 nears the end, I want to send a special note of thanks. Most of 2015 has past in a painful blur for the girls and me. I really feel that I can not thank you enough for the support you gave us. Financially we would not have made it through. Even after the emergency was past there were, emails, texts, cards and visits showing an abundance of support for Andy and our family. I wish I were a poet or a greeting card writer so I could put the words here. Please know I think you all are very special. I wish you a blessed 2016 and a safe riding year.
Sincerely,
Michelle Clark
