LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHERS Wow its Mardis Gras time! Whoo hoo! Let’s hope the weather will be better this year. It rained 80% of the time last year for the Mardis Gras festivities and this year its predicted to be beautiful. That means more bikes will be on the road going to parades and parties, and unfortunately it also means more accidents. Don’t be a statistic people! Don’t drink and ride or drive! It’s also Valentines Day on the 14th, so don’t forget to buy your sweetheart a Valentine gift on that day because if you do not acknowledge her, I guarantee you that she won’t let you forget it! For your convenience we have included a parade schedule for you in this issue. And oh, let’s not forget about the St. Patrick’s Day parades and the Italian parades, (my favorite). You will notice that we have changed up and beefed up a bit in this issue! We are including some of our readers favorite “toyz” besides their bikes, so check out the two pages on that inside this issue as well. Also, Rally season is coming up and if you have not purchased your discount online tickets for the Mississippi Mayhem Music Festival and Rally, go do so quickly! Remember this is for a great cause and where else can you party with 17 incredibly talented bands for only $30 for 3 days! www.msmayhemfest.com R.I.P. to all of our brothers and sisters in the wind who lost the ride. Always in our hearts and memories. Andrew and Renee Check us out on the web at www.thunderroadslams.com - Zig Ziglar THUNDER ROADS® LA P.O.
