Every now and then I consider applying to the GPTB for an Honorary membership. I imagine that the most of the initiation would be right up my alley. But some of the requisite gear... well I suppose that it would be hard for me to project the necessary "Cool" image while giggling like a little girl as I imagine would be while thinking "Y.M.C.A." as I walked around. If I walked or rode by a mirror... well... lets just say it wouldn't be "Cool".



I really like most of what I think the GPTB is about. Maybe if you guys could come up with a kinda "Jr Associate Honorary Membership in Spirit" deal with no more than say a Keg of Beer in annual dues and a waiver on the whole bike/clothes/ponytail/tatoo thing... well, I could be down with that!

Why is it that which is desired and denied becomes that much more desired? OK how's this sound: H-Dtm sticker on the Kaw's tank (underneath), a Genuine H-Dtm vest, H-Dtm GPT wig (or a mullet wig if sold out), a few H-Dtm insta-tats AND a H-Dtm dew-rag? One time, NO PICTURES (thinking of the mess Pat Boone stirred up)!? AND Would you guys take my word for it? Honest.



PS I really thought that "Keg of Beer" thing would have closed the deal.

Buzz, you'll never convince me that you wouldn't be LYAO if I were to appear so attired. Have you considered the damage to the GPTB image that my smirking, at best, self would cause? What with all this other gear in addition to my normal riding gear of shorts, T-shirt, tennis shoes and full-face helmet. Where DO you guys find all this stuff?



PS I've always wanted to be the Grand Poobaa of something (now that I think about it) Hmmm...

Re:

WHEW!!! That's a Toughy!!! On the one side the "And this above all other things, to thine own self be true." (or somethin' like that), self respect/dignity stuff. And on the other side (which I'm leaning toward), the whole GPTB deal, and a shot at the Grand Poobaa thing. HMMM...

The Proud new member!

DONE!!!

I can't believe the lengths that SOME GPTB members wanted me to stoop too!

You guys can collect on your portions when next we meet. I guess this means it's Not Buzz's turn on the next round.

Ride for Fun, Ride for Life, Ride till Death! Long Live the GPTB!!!

Re: The Proud new member!

I can see now that this won't be as easy as I thought it would be (keg o' Bud or somethin'). That's OK though, you guys start marching in lock-step too much on anything (well most anything) and I'd be worried.

Re: GPTB membership drive

Brother Martin, I think including Fonzie is an astute observation. I will note that while in negotiation for my membership I was considering the possibility of making a fool of myself by wearing "The Full Ensemble". In fact the "Grand Poobaa" deal is still appealing to me and my first act if so Honored would be a surprise... However... before that became necessary a Senior Member allowed me to buy my way in. I feel no shame is this regard as I'm confident that some could not buy their way in regardless of price, Jankolowoff for one. I thought a "Keg o' beer" (and bottle of Tequila) sounded far more dignified (and enticing) than say $50. Since I am no stranger to buying a round or two when I feel I'm in good company... in my books I got in free!

PS You may rest assured that I observed how eager you (and Brother Buzz) were to have me "Act the Fool" (Sea snake w/rhinestones!)but you know by now I need no encouragement in this area, I'm a natural.

PPS I always thought that the core requirement for GPTB membership is to love to ride AND to have been riding for "Awhile".

Re: GPTB membership drive

Yeah, SURE, I was just following orders and all... I had to do a lot of Soul-searching before joining the Moose (which I let lapse), now the GPTB so why not "The Church of Perpetual Motion"? It's not one of these wacked out, having sex with all the young women, drunken deals is it??? If so, I DEFINITELY want to join.
