Happy Birthday America Palmetto Style After the threat from what appeared to be a strong storm approaching the Cities of Palmetto and Bradenton on the 4th of July the Concert in Sutton Park and the fireworks display we were spared. All I can say is, ‘People--prayers do work!’ After receiving a substantial amount of rain at the house earlier in the afternoon my wife decided she wasn’t going to participate in the celebration in Palmetto. Maybe the real reason was because I was going to ride my motorcycle downtown and not take the truck. Once I was at Sutton Park…

Born To Ride Reviews Larry Bishop’s Hell Ride

Published on July 9, 2012 under Born To Ride
This month’s Movie Review:  Hell Ride   Confusion and chaos pretty much sums up this movie. It is the modern day version of all the biker exploitation “B” movies ever made.
