Big hello from Az and Solo

Postby AzBowman » Fri Mar 02, 2012 8:44 am



Hello everyone I would like to introduce ourselves I am AzBowman and my partner here is Solo.
We live in Az where we do not have to hide solo from the winter because really we do not have one! :) :D .
We have been together only a very short time as we just met about 2 weeks ago but so far it has been a joy.

Here is a picture of Solo.

Welcome Az and Solo to the site. I am in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and can't wait for the last 18 inches of snow to melt, should be pretty close to riding time by then.

OK guys here goes and I hope I can make it through the telling. Solo's story is one of joy, sadness, and surprise all wrapped up in one. The bike got her name in a round about way from my brother in law who is no longer with us. See he is/was a Marine and an Iraq war veteran, he was one of the many who came home with the type of injuries you cant see. He suffered with PTSD although he was on medication he lost his battle Dec. of 2011 and took his own life well one of my sisters is active duty Air Force and offered to make us all copies of his dog tags as a memorial. Prior to his death we had been talking about me getting a Wing and going for rides together and the like. The song by Toby Keith Red Solo Cup was one of his favorites. fast forward to recently I picked up my bike on a Saturday rode it 50 miles home and parked it the rest of the day to go over it better. Sunday morning comes along and I decide to go for a little ride and put the key into the bike, now i have to mention i parked on Saturday and first thing was to put his Tags on the key ring for the bike, i turn on the bike and turn on the radio the first song on the radio that comes on is Red Solo Cup. Deep in my heart I know that was his way of letting me know he was not in pain any longer and that even in death he is still riding with me. God Bless you Paul and god Bless all the men and women that have or are serving you deserve all the best! so that is Solo's story I'm gonna go now I have something in my eye.
