Good afternoon, bikers, patriots and gun enthusiasts! It is the second Monday in April, and spring is in the air – literally (the pollen is floating everywhere)! It is also the time of the year when Racy Sicilian™, and the Grey Beard Biker™, are beginning to lock in the events that we are planning on attending over the coming months.

Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival

The Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival rally has quickly become one of the most popular, and well attended, rallies in the South. This year, with the COVID-19 mask restrictions having been lifted in Tennessee, it promises to be the biggest TMMR ever! Held at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, in Hurricane Mills, TN, it will take place from Thursday, May 20 through Sunday, May 23.

Live music at the Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival

Besides having many vendors, you will get to enjoy some of the best bands you will see anywhere. Here is this year’s list of bands:

  • Billy F. Gibbons and the BFG’s (Billy is one of the ZZTop trio)
  • Tim Montana
  • Rob Leines
  • Georgia Thunderbolts
  • Sweet Tea Trio
  • Stone Senate
  • Tyler Jay
  • True Villains
  • Flying Buffaloes

The Loretta Lynn Ranch offers tent camping and RV hookups. Tickets are required for the Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival and can be purchased as daily passes or full event passes. Hotels/motels are in available in the area, with Clarksville (45 minutes) being the closest large city.

Boone Bike Rally

Boone Bike Rally

This will be the first year that Racy and the GBB plan on attending the Boone Bike Rally. Located in Boone, North Carolina, the rally runs from Thursday, June 3, through Saturday, June 5. There will be plenty of vendors and bands at this event. Some of the bands currently scheduled are:

  • Southern Thunder
  • Problem Child
  • SmasHat
  • Preston Benfield
  • Bad Romeo
  • Throwdown Jones

The Springfield Mile

AFT Springfield Mile

The Springfield Mile is one of the American Flat Track Racing organization’s premier events. It is held each Labor Day Weekend at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on the north side of Springfield, Illinois. This year’s races will take place Saturday, September 4 and Sunday, September 5. Tickets are required.

Bikes, Blues & BBQ

Bikes, Blues & BBQ – Fayetteville, Arkansas

While Racy and I absolutely love riding in the Smoky Mountains and Blue Ridge Mountains (our home turf), there roads nearly as challenging elsewhere. One area that I have ridden often is the Ozarks, of Missouri and Arkansas. In my humble opinion, for sheer beauty and technical roads, you cannot beat the southern Ozarks of Arkansas – and it just so happens that one of the largest rallies west of the Mississippi River is held there: Bikes, Blues & BBQ. As with all rallies, there are tons of vendors, great music – and of course, in this case, fantastic BBQ! The rally is held in Fayetteville, Arkansas and will be running from Wednesday, September 22 through Saturday, September 25. While none of their bands have been announced yet, you can bet they will be worth the price of admission. And while attending Bikes, Blues & BBQ, do not miss some of the great touring roads in the area:

  • The Pig Trail
  • Alpena Ride
  • The War Eagle/Eureka Springs
  • Roaring River Ride
  • The Buffalo River Ride

There is plenty of lodging in Fayetteville and Springdale – and camping is offered in several local campgrounds including Rock Village Court, Rockin S Ranch, Gypsy Camp & Canoe, Elk River Floats and Resort and Hog Valley RV.

After the slew of canceled events in 2020, Racy and The Grey Beard Biker are looking forward to enjoying 2021! Hopefully we will see you at one of these events! Until then, ride often, shoot straight and keep the shiny side up.

Well, Patriots, we are going into almost three months with Joe Biden as our fraudulent Commander In Chief – what a 💩 show it has been thus far. Sniffing Joe the pedo has left the building so to say – he can barely form a full coherent sentence; yet he is the most powerful ruler of the free world. He is dragging us down the commie road faster than I could have anticipated. God help us! 😳

Mister Biden has signed many Executive Orders since taking office, many simply to erase President Trump’s policies that put America First – Biden is China first. Biden is ushering us into a socialist country – destroying our core values one Executive Order at a time. Tyranny now reigns from Washington, DC.

It comes as no surprise that Mister Biden’s focus is now set on removing our Second Amendment RIGHTS – our right to keep and bear arms – bit by bit. The Bill of Rights says our right to bear arms “Shall not be infringed,” yet this is one of the Biden administration’s top goals. 

On April 9, 2021, Mister Biden made the following crazy azz statement: “No amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” Biden maintained 😳

“You can’t yell…‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater and call it freedom of speech.  From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own 🤥. From the very beginning that the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons 😳. So the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution,” he said 🤥

“Gun violence in this country is an epidemic. Let me say it again: Gun violence in this country is an epidemic, and it’s an international embarrassment,” Biden concluded 😳

Well excuse me, Mister Biden – you are the only “International embarrassment.” And our Constitution is an “ABSOLUTE!”  Every amendment has expanded our freedoms, except for the eighteenth amendment, which was the federal enforcement in the Prohibition of alcohol, which was later ratified by the twenty-first amendment, which is idiomatic to all other amendments out of twenty-seven amendments in our Constitution, because it repeals a prior amendment. 

Sig SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace 

What really caught my attention was his call for the banning of “Pistol Braces,” which to be honest I was not very familiar with at the time. I started researching Pistol Braces, which to my amazement are nothing more than a device, which attaches to your wrist with velcro, in order to give the user more stability, thus more accuracy while firing their weapon. Upon first glance I did wonder why anyone would need a Pistol Brace, in the first place, then I thought of people with disabilities whom this device could be very beneficial, which I discovered was actually invented for a disabled combat veteran.

A pistol brace, also known as a stabilizing brace, is an accessory that attaches to the rear of the gun and allows the firearm to be fired one-handed. It basically slips around the forearm of the shooter and, using Velcro, secures to the arm. The goal is to stabilize the gun as you’re firing.

It gained steam, especially among DISABLED shooters, because it allowed them to control and fire AR and AK carbines safely. In fact, the inventor of the brace, SB Tactical’s Alex Bosco, came up with the idea in 2012 after shooting at a range with a DISABLED COMBAT VETERAN and witnessing the struggles DISABLED shooters face.

Despite a certain cool factor, braces actually help gun owners who struggle using full-length, shouldered rifles enjoy AR-style firearms comfortably. (Full article can be found at Pew Pew Tactical)

Pistol Brace

There are many more attacks coming from the Biden administration concerning our Second Amendment RIGHTS – the azzhat has laid out his diabolical plan in what is called “The Fact Sheet” which I find utterly hilarious considering Biden has absolutely no grasp of the facts – I am not sure he even knows what planet he on at this point. This is a complete attack on our Constitution, and to disabled people, which would violate the American with Disabilities Act

I do ask all my readers to consider that just eight years ago Venezuela surrendered their guns – today they are being shot dead in the streets. This is what will inevitably happen here in our country should we ever surrender our guns. We must never surrender any of our God given rights. We are in a battle for the very life of our country so stay strong, Patriots. 

Until next time, Patriots, and friends, keep holding the line. 

God bless America! 🇺🇸
