MOA and Hoecakes, Who Could Ask For Anything More?

The BMW Motorcycle Owners of America (MOA) are expecting a crowd of 10,000+ at their 37th International Rally July 16-19. The location this year is Johnson City, Tenn., home of uh, people who live in Johnson City. Those Johnson City-ites will soon be joined by our very own Red River Riders Bob Critcher, David Moak, Charles Jolley and Mark Jamroz. From the looks of things, it is going to be a jam-packed few days in Johnson City with events sponsored by Johnson Wax at the Howard Johnson's. Special awards will be given to those who can recite the names of all the Johnsons who appeared in "Blazing Saddles." As if a great event wasn't enough, MOA proves that they, too, can monkey up a perfectly good bike and make it ugly enough to be raffled off for a good cause. Good Lord Almighty.

If you aren't lucky enough to be able to take in all the sights in Johnson City and environs, go get $5 out of the piggybank and join all the cool people on Saturday, July 18 at the Applebee's on Shreveport's Mansfield Road for flatjacks n' something to wash 'em down with. All the money goes to a GREAT cause, the Cara Center for abused children. It's a wonderful precursor to the third annual Run with the Nuns scheduled for October 24 at Louisiana Downs and will be an opportunity to have a good meal, see friends and ogle bikes, and it's a LOT closer than Johnson City!
