My Drifter has Emerged From Storage


The time has finally arrived here in the northeast when the motorcycles can be ridden Temps yesterday were in the 70’s and I got the Drifter out of storage and all cleaned up.

Over the winter I did do a few add ons to my bike so today I am happy to show you pictures of how she looks.

I am a lover of the Indian look and have dressed my bike as close as I could to that original Indian stance. I think my Pretendian really makes a statement.






Although my love is ventriloquist figures I also love motorcycles and my very first ride when I got my drivers license was a 1959 Triumph 650. I have always been a bike lover and have had many of them over the years. I even got Helen to go with me early in our marriage but today she doesn’t have the desire to go for a ride so it is solo riding for me.



Due to a couple of schedule conflicts, our Ventriloquist Central Telephone Talk with Tom Crowl will be this Wednesday, April 18th at 8pm Eastern, 7pm Central and 5pm Pacific.

To participate in the interview all you have to do is call in to our conference telephone number, then enter the conference access code. The telephone number is, 712-432-3900 and the access code is, 532161# (your normal long distance charges may apply).

Be sure to listen in for some special news!!!
