The Busted Knuckle Chronicles

AllegroFrancois introduced me to Christelle and Stéphane, the owners who are originally from France and are riders.

Stéphane and I talked a bit as he showed me around the B& B. Once I was safely ensconced, Francois headed off to change for dinner.

We went to the Allegro Italian restaurant for dinner and had a fabulous chat about motorcycling and tourism.  I have eaten at this restaurant during a previous visit to the region and while the food was wonderful, the service on this night was rather disappointing.  It seemed like the gal who seated us forgot to tell our very busy waiter that she had brought us to his section. We were on the verge of leaving when he came by and realized we had not been served. It happens, even in the best of establishments.

Hi Ali and Betty,

Reading page 29 and 30 made me smile and I immediately started singing the Beatles song” I’ve jus seen a face”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbKGsEK_T9g

From as far back as I can remember, I recall daydreaming about everything from bicycles, to boats to motorcycles and as I grew older; the perfect relationship, an adventurous lifestyle, to traveling the world, to finding a rewarding career and to enjoy the best that this life had to offer.

The Monkey Report April 3rd, 2014

bad Uncle MonkeyMy friend was down this weekend. As we waited in my garage for a young gentleman to look at Mrs. Monkey old bike he asked this and that about my bikes. I told him about my plans for the missus's new HondaMatic, how it worked, how it would look when it was done. I talked endlessly about the RoadKing explaining how the parts fit together, what my hopes and dreams would be for the bike when it was finished. We talked about Snow White and how much I was looking forward to getting her back on the road in the upcoming weeks.

Paying it forward


Every year our newspaper donates an average of $300,000 in free advertising to the riding clubs and the charities they support.

We don’t do 50/50 costs – we flat out donate it.  All we ask is for a link to our site from the group or charity site.

Why? Because all of us that work at Belt Drive Betty Media Ltd, are riders and we believe in paying it forward.

How to Save the Airlines

Dump the male flight attendants.

No one wanted them in the first place....

Replace all the female flight attendants with good-looking strippers!

What the hell -- they don't even serve food anymore, so what's the loss?

Auto Spelling Corrections are a BIT$#

A man received the following text from his neighbor:

I am so sorry Bob.  I've been riddled with guilt and I have to confess.  I have been tapping your wife, day and night, when you're not around.  In fact, more than you have.  I'm not getting any at home, but that's no excuse.  I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apology with my promise that it won't happen again.

#10... A below par performance is considered damn good.

#09... You can stop in the middle and have a cheeseburger and a couple of beers.

#08... It's much easier to find the sweet spot.

Golf And What It All Means

Golf can best be defined as an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle, followed by a good bottle of beer.

Golf ! You hit down to make the ball go up.You swing left and the ball goes right.The lowest score wins, on top of that, the winner buys the drinks.
