August 2018 Bike of the Month
« on: August 15, 2018, 01:34:31 pm »
This months winner is a long time Board member and all around nice guy.

As a motorcycle mechanic he has been generous with his time and parts at SGT's. I know this because my brother dumped his Magna and broke his clutch lever in a parking lot on the BRP. He limped back to BRMC, and I was about to head out to Ashville to see if I could find a replacement on a Friday afternoon, when Greg walked up and handed him one of his spares. What a nice gesture.

As far as riding, well lets just say Greg gets his monies worth out of a set of tires.......


So congratulations Greg (Tomuza) your V65 Magna is August 2018's BOTM.

Thanks Michael for selecting my bike for August BOTM. It's been a great bike and given me many a reliable miles and lots of ear to ear smiles... even saved my butt more times than I can count too!  Lean and Believe!!   :pope:

Thank guys very much for the compliments.
I have it on the table now for a long overdue clean and polish so I can bring it to The 15th Anniversary SGT; hope to see you there!

Micheal, Im just glad I had something that could help him!  :beer:

Bill, wasn't I behind you on the BRP at the 1st SGT?     ;D

Malm, I like paint too but,  "polished" doesn't come off!  :thumb

Think I'll take it for a ride down the street and lift the front (a little) to celebrate!   :lol8:

Congrats to a helluva good guy, fantastic friend and a great rider.

Greg is as hard to understand as Hunter, but every bit as generous and fun to be around.  He doesn't think twice about going out of his way to help others.

And if he's not the very best rider I know, he's damn close.  He's so god dang good it's annoying.

See ya at SGT, bud.   :beer:
