Gosh that sorta sounds like something i said when i was 16, and uh,, never mind..
With your permission, I will turn these and save as jpeg, then everyone will be able to see them. Let me know, ASAP.
This was a real pain, and i sure could use the help, any way to turn that image as well...thanks friend.

Without the vest and add a cross
Gregaz You're the man
This was the vest my colors were on when i rode with the Vietnam Vets Motor Cycle Club, You can see the name Edwards which i also have in the HD bar and shield on my left arm. the Vietnam and year patch, (open geezers right arm post) and the big VFW (color guard) patch. the "awards" Ryo, are actually what we call run pins, you get them from diffrent runs, or mc get togethers. Usually what happens with those (least in the old days) is we all get together in a circle and hold hands, and sip a little tea.. Talk about how to end global warming, and how to stop men from being sexist pigs and try to figure out how we can save up the money to buy Honda goldwings..There a lot of fun.
If you want them turned different ways, let me know...
Yep brother, if there is anyway to combine the two (geezers right and left arm) and if you could A) inlarge B) rotate the pics of self and guns.
Believe me i tried to do this, was up last night till 3am, this was just beyond me, and made more difficult by the use of wifes computer that we recieved the email on. I'm going to have to get the right size for my cam are replace it, as i really want to take and post pics of my collection, and wildlife in the area.. Thanks
I think now with Sams help you can see the details.. This was all done under less than ideal circumstances and in a 2 to 3 min time frame. Just wanted to get them up. Now im going to invest in something to actually be able take and post some pics.
Thanks to Samy this is now visable, i wanted to see if you could pick out the sturgis pins etc.. i got this out cause i thought it would bring back
some memorys for you, sure does for me since i can't ride anymore. how was thanksgiving, ours was great.
yep,sure did,nice vest,is that a Las Vegas bikefest pin?Right over the HOG patch?? You got Ryo with the Honda comment,very funny.Sharp photo Greg,now point out the pin for RYO that you got for selling the most cookies....
I just about had it, then they gangsterd me into extra thin mints, and stomped me when i refused to buy them. The bikefest pin, is actually a copy of my old Air Crew wings, but in wrong color. Never did the Vegas run, But my scoot was at Harras in Laughlin when the boys got to cap'n each other. The pin im most proud of is on R under the Sturgis pin, its from 86 when we put up the AZ version of the Nam wall in Tucson. We had Cali Red and White come over to do the escort. And all the three piece patches were hanging out togeter, VVMC, Banditos, Red and Wite, Dirty Dozen before they were patched over. Was pre RUBie and the real deal. I dont remember much of it. cause unlike Bill and before giving my life to the Lord, I DID inhale
Sturgis, South Dakota new retirement destination, giant golf course and amusement park planned
Sturgis will ALWAYS be Sturgis.. The RUBies will get into something else for thier middle age "crazy" thing, and while there may not be as many, the real bikers will always be around..
Damn, this guy looks like the guy in "Mission Impossable" the TV show years back. What say you?
nice vest pal.
If you get a chance check out
the 3/4 version of the wall at
My wife and I had a great time

I could definitely beat you up. I mean come on, man. A vest and no braided beard or tats on your head? Gosh. What a let down. What am I saying? I need a beer. DAMN THIS WORK CRAP!!!!
i could hook you twice before you hit the ground.. My wild days were before i joined the dept. and for real..LOVE TO FIGHT..why i joined, why i didnt make more of my life after the service, I always felt that a night out with out a fight was a waste.. then in the 70's i boxed semi pro, never got good enough for pro.. the one shot i had (little racism here) as a white boy when i trained i got a lot of "looks" and could make a speed bag talk.. so i got a shot.. not ranked but a shot... knocked out in two.. anyway i didnt always win..but even your comment has adrinalyn pump'n.... i can hook son...for a fuckn fact!!
Runaway.................pretty much says it all.
Other names honorable mention
I could beat the shit out of your knuckles with my face. You'd have sore hands for days.
I ran away with your dog then brought him back after I abused him.
Some day freak.....................some day.
Someday the AKC will let me backstage at one of their big dog shows and I'll be a happy man.
We were a 3 piece patch, (had to drop when i joined the agency of course) i was an inforcer.. We got income from a number of semi legal (loan co) and shall i say extra legal sources for collecting debts.. I'm not proud of a lot of this, it happened before i was saved, and ive spent a lot of time on my knees because of what ive done. In the dept. i had incounters to feed my little "habit" on a regular basis. I have a thing about lying, i think you know that. my word really is everything, telling you i have been beat up more than youve been drunk.. I was going to tell you when you lived in palominas about getting stomped at the steak joint in Sonoita, on the way to patagonia.. Matter of fact my "salvage" radiation on prostate cancer might not be happening. they have to operate on the first to see how close scar tissue is to the prostate, apparantly radiation makes urine issues worse yet..anyway that scar tissue came from being stomped.. I wish i didnt have the rush from fighting i do.. i promise you theres nothing normal about it.
screw from the ganster movies. I don't think I'd try to shank you. Then again, if I ever thought I was going to go to prison, I'd have a set of tits tattooed on my back and a pair of green eyes tattooed to the back of my head. I'm woman enough to admit I'd become someone's bitch.
I know I miss the feeling of those close calls downrange and I'm anxious to get back to it. It's an issue the military has taken very seriously over the last couple years, because so many OIF/OEF vets were getting hurt and killed doing dumb shit for a rush. It's almost like those long time convicts. They say they become "institutionalized", where that life is what becomes comfortable to them. While the sights, sounds, and smells of combat aren't comfortable (at least to me. Maybe I just need to do it more?), the rush afterward of knowing you are still around is almost addicting. On every report we do now with a servicemember as a subject, we have to list whether he/she has been deployed in the past 12 months so they can do those studies on the correlation between deployments and criminal activity. Like it takes a college degree to tell that.
If you've ever seen Pale Rider with Clint Eastwood (What real man hasn't, right?) the guy with the two boys who finds the big gold chunk and goes into town and is then killed by LaHood's men? You look like him. Only much more badass. And not dead. And even if I can't kick your ass, I bet I can run faster scared than you can pissed.
usta be a big runner, but to many "slow twitch" in thighs.. great for doing squats, but equally great for screwing up back and always got into ox debt at under 9 min a mile anyway. Could put a lot of them together but never fast.. Ran from folks to brothers all the time down in SV, one time when bufflao sl tr was first built im running south on it.. look back and see a couple troops coming up on me maybe half a click back.. so i pick up the pase..Look back 15 min or so later, and thier gaining so i go right to ox debt. i was pretty lean then and ran 20+ a week, but my max for distance was like 8 a mile, and this was at the BEST! so anyway im trying not to look like im pressing it, and two "wiskeys" pass me, these two are hoffing it, wearing combat boots, and (fact!) talking like a couple of hens about guys and work etc.. They gave me a casual wave, and slowly disapeared.. sheessshh
it's a blizzard outside,i'm starting to get the need for speed,my knees in the breeze,might have to roll the bike out into the driveway,put my snoopy goggles on and howl at the moon.LOL
