1 S o u t h e r n N e v a d a C h a p t e r, I n c. # The Director s Saddle Well, here we are in November with two special holidays; Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. Thinking about the later, I came across a particular Thanksgiving festivity held way back in 1959, when I was in the 5 th grade. N O V E M B E R, Funny, I still remember many of the kids in the photo! Like my big crush Claudia kneeling at the far left next to the chief. I was thankful for that day, because I was close to the love of my life standing right behind her (yes, that is me). Then, there was Kathy Brooks (seated behind the pumpkin) who was a good friend and a real hot sh-t even back then. She was the only one who knew how much I adored Claudia and was Claudia s best friend. We even put together a song for field trips! Sung to the tune of Tra la la boom di-ay. We are the Highland boys. We are the real McCoy's. We are the biggest boobs in all the TV tubes. We like the Highland girls, who wear their hair in curls, and wear their dungarees way up above their knees! Yeah, there was a lot to be thankful for at the good old Highland School! Today there are still so many things to be thankful for. S.N.H.O.G.

2 Continued from page 1 Director s Saddle...continued The Director s Saddle...continued Regardless of some of the recent turmoil in DC, we still live in a country were everybody else in the world wants to come, whether it be education, health care, or just the opportunity to have a job and a chance. But we have those benefits because of all our Veterans past and present. So each Thanksgiving, I give a special thanks to all those that have served and their families. For in the words of John Milton, They also serve who sit and wait. I give thanks and remember. I remember two special Vets, Sam & Eli. Sam was a career Marine who by the time of WWII had already been seasoned by campaigns in Nicaragua. A First Sergeant, he led his platoon from island to island. Places we all have read about Guadalcanal, Saipan, and Tarawa. After the war, he retired in the early 50s with 25 years of service as a Sergeant Major and became a Security Officer at Brandeis. He spent another career at Brandeis working his way up to the Head of Security for the University. Got married and had a family. In all the time I knew him, he always had a smile, never raised his voice, and never spoke about his experiences and the horrors that he witnessed. Eli was in the Army. Joining just prior to the war. He served as a Medic in the European theater. Marching across France and into Germany, Eli was wounded several times attending the troops during battle. Receiving a battlefield commission he rose to the rank of Captain. He was one of the first to see the cruelty of war on a civilian populace when they entered and liberated the Buchenwald Concentration-Death Camp and saw first hand the inhumanity and atrocities of the Nazi Regime. After the war, Eli spent another 7 years with the occupation forces in Germany, returning home in the mid 50s. Like Sam, he always had a smile, never raised his, voice, and never spoke of his experiences. Unlike Sam, Eli never married. His sisters, brother, and relatives were his family. Simply put his life after the service was a mess. A professional gambler he affected and infected those around him. It wasn t until the last months of his life that it became obvious how the time spent at Buchenwald and all the lives lost in his arms or under his care affected him. Affected to the point that he thought himself to be one of those many liberated prisoners he had tried to help so many years back in April of 45. But Sam and Eli are only examples. Only two stories of the millions of stories from millions of Vets to whom we owe a debt of gratitude and our undying Thanks! I think the Marines have said it in the ending of their poem. And when he gets to Heaven, to Saint Peter he will tell, One more Marine reporting, Sir. I've served my time in Hell. During November, take a moment and thank a Vet. If he s like Sam you ll put a smile on his face, maybe even embarrass him a bit, but if he s like Eli, you might change and save his life. To my Brothers and their Family Thank you for Your Service To All, a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving AJ Page 2

3 Road Captains article By Mr. Larry Preston The fall is fast approaching and now is the time to start getting ready for winter driving and the associated accessories that go with it. Tom has reminded us all several times to check the pressure in your tires during the change of seasons as well as before each ride. The T-Clocks is always the best way to start a ride. T-Tires and Wheels C-Controls L-Lights O-Oil and Fluids C-Chassis S-Side stand (kickstand) the spring is what you are checking Next, it is time to start breaking out the long gloves, heavier coats, windbreaker and probably your ¾ or full face helmets. If you have electronic heated gear, try it out prior to your ride. It is a terrible feeling to start your ride, turn on the heated gear only to find out that it is not working properly. Hopefully you have not stored this gear in your garage all summer. See if you need to put a little leather moisturizer and your equipment to soften it back up and to keep it in good condition. Each fall I try to go through my check list of clothing and accessories to make my ride easier and more enjoyable. I have already had to replace a light, a fuse and will probably add another plug in area for my convenience of the heated gear. If you have space, it can never hurt to carry extra gear for the change in weather. The other day we left with our heated gear in the am and ended up with some great warm weather by the time we returned to Las Vegas. I almost always carry my rain gear anytime we head to the mountains, but we also know it can happen even on the short rides into Utah or any of the close by mountains. If you have any spare space, tools, extra parts or even some spare gas is always nice to have. As you can see, we have a lot to think about prior to each ride and with the change of weather, carrying more gear is really a good idea. Last year I also reminded people of checking the life of the foam in your helmet. Who knew that my favorite helmet which was about 7 years old really did not fit properly anymore and some of the foam was really worn. Most helmets in Las Vegas take a beating with our extreme weather and that will cause the foam inside your helmets to wear much faster. Most helmets should be replaced every 3-4 years for optimum conditions. Both the Eastern and Rainbow stores can check your helmet if you have any questions and as we all know; they have a huge selection of helmets and accessories. Please take the extra time to check your gear, ride safe with the proper equipment and condition of your bike. Ride your ride and enjoy the experiences of riding with SNHOG. Page 3

6 Notes from HOG Member David Chadwick Mario, Just something I put together. Just a letter of thanks to everyone. I would like to thank all the H.O.G. members and officers for letting me join the ranks as a new ambassador. In brief, I have been a member since I took the Riders Edge course to get the motorcycle feel back in my spirit. I didn t think I could afford a Harley but after taking the course it was hard to walk past those glorious bikes and not drool a little. The sales team saw me a-coming and I soon had a slightly used 06 Road King from the rental fleet. I bought the bike and also became a member of the Southern Nevada HOG Club. Riding with the group at first was different as I have always ridden alone but seeing how everyone was in formation and the Road Captains orchestrating our motions I quickly felt a strong sense of community. Being guarded in social skills, it took me a while to associate freely with other members but after going on most of the monthly weekend rides it got easier to talk especially when I was by myself at a restaurant table or booth with other club members that I had not met. As I have gotten patches and pins through the past years my vest has a sense of the journey that I signed up for. My yearly HOG pins, rocker patches and ride/event pins are looking like some kind of story about my beginning adventures. But at the same time I really wasn t getting to know everyone until I was TOLD that I need a name patch on the vest. Well, that did the trick. No one really knew my name so it opened up communication with everyone. I was still a bit socially quiet but had a greater sense of friendship with the group. My 06 Road King was getting more chromed, exhausts, electrical and cosmetic upgrades all the time. I loved that bike. In fact, it was my first Harley. I won t mention the others here but I will say that my first one was a real dream. After attending the advanced Rider s Edge course I was, once again, walking past the shiny bikes and happened to talk with Tom Campbell in the sales area. Guess what! The new 2013 s were in and oh boy they looked good. You know what follows...yep; they saw me a-coming. I settled on the 2013 Ultra Classic 103. I always wanted to have CB radio capability so I could hear what the Road Captains were talking about. Then Tom pointed out I could plug my ipod into the accessory and with head phones in the helmet my whole ride outlook had changed. Listening to the 2 way communication of the road captains is impressive. All the entering, exiting, riding updates and road hazard alerts are detailed in precision. A formidable job was done with finesse. The more I thought about this group and hearing it all happen in monthly meetings and in motion on the road was when I decided to apply for ambassador so I could offer a hand, smile, help or just friendship to the members I have made friends over the past eight years and also offer the same to any and all new members looking to find a friend to talk to before the meeting or the pre ride briefing. I am self-employed, a sole proprietor, with work done by myself so the community experience I get from others in conversation is something I am learning to give back. Thanks to everyone for your support! David Chadwick Page 6

7 2 Million Bikers to DC Event By Chester McQuillen I went to the 2 Million Bikers to DC event. I signed up for information on Facebook with the Nevada group, but also with the Ohio group since I knew that I would be in Ohio when it was time to assemble. I didn't see much participation with the Nevada group which was not surprising considering the distance. I assembled with the Ohio District 6 group on Sep 10 at 0800 hours and we went KU at 0930, one half hour late due to a last minute battery change by one member of the group. The ride to DC was uneventful other than some truck drivers honking to show support. The group split up in Fredrick, Maryland with everyone going to different camp sites. I camped with four others at a campsite that was seven miles from the Washington DC Harley Davidson in Ft. Washington, MD. We arrived at the dealership at There were no spots left to park in front of the dealership. We were jammed in the back near the service area with well over 200 other bikes, and those were just the ones in front of us. The crowd was amazing, in that we were all on the same page with the outrage over the slap in the face to the American people by the group that had planned the march which brought this event to life. A lot of us were Veterans. We realized that we had fought for the right of those folks to march, but we had a voice that we wanted to share also. When the initial permit for the ride was denied, Plan B was put into effect by the organizers. Helicopter surveillance of the 18 mile long 4 deep column of motorcycles convinced the authorities to somehow get control. They offered a permit to have a procession on the DC Beltway for two orbits. This permit was relayed two hours prior to KU for the event. There were some speeches made by the organizers. Each of the riders were given the name of a 9/11/01 victim to ride for. We went KU at 1100 hours and the chaos began. The name I was given belonged to a 52 year old mother/grandmother of 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Cora Hidalgo Holland, of Sudbury Massachusetts who boarded Flight 11 to visit her mother in her old home in San Bernardino, CA. Cora was a volunteer in the food kitchen of the Our Lady of Fatima church. Her two greatest loves were her family and the Boston Red Sox. On September 11, 2001 at 08:46:30, Cora Hidalgo Holland was murdered by Mohamed Atta when he drove Flight 11 between the 93rd and 99th floors of the North facade of the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 440 knots (495 mph) and carrying about 10,000 gallons of jet fuel. We rode because we remember! Page 7

9 2013 Progressive Dinner A BIG thanks to LOH Officer Claudia & her team! This years Progressive Dinner was a huge success thanks to lots of planning and the graciousness of our Hosts & Hostesses and of course our absolutely amazing Road Captains who lead us on once again a very safe trip across the Vegas Valley with lots of challenging Sunday afternoon traffic to deal with! Yes, we do have the most amazing team of Road Captains! We left from RRHD on what could not have been a more perfect day weather wise with over 30 bikes and over 40 hungry members & their guests ready to roll. Our first stop was for appetizers at Phillipe & Deb s house. The house was easy to spot with Phillipe s shiny & spotless bike parked in the driveway!!! And speaking of parking we had an entire school parking lot waiting for us! We enjoyed our appetizers, salad & good conversation before heading on to our next stop. When we arrived at Tom & Judy s I m sure the neighbors heard us coming! Our bikes lined up on both sides of the street. Hungry and ready for the main course, we were very pleasantly surprised to find that Tom & Judy had once again outdone themselves when we learned the main course was filet mignon on the grill, baked potatoes with all the fixings, corn on the cob and rolls! Becky & Don assisted with the grilling of the steaks Claudia also helped out with taking orders for how everyone wanted their steaks cooked! WOW! Not only a great meal with great people, we had an incredible view of the valley! Our last stop was at Cinda s where we all enjoyed LOTS of sweet deserts and some really fun conversations as well as relaxing in her huge back yard while we reminisced over what a fun day we were all having. Birthday wishes were sung to Tony B and Cinda even had a candle for him to blow out! Thanks to all of you who made this such a successful day!!! Page 9
