    Some great gals here, we have had the pleasure of having a few of these lovely ladies on the show. Congrats on 5 years of celebrating together in Sturgis and decades of riding together!

    Thanks for reporting on the Biker Belles, Cyril. I was not there this year, after having attended the last two.
    Great job on all your Sturgis reporting! Nice to see all that as going on. You always get a good “front row” seat to the action. I appreciate you going above and beyond the press releases as well. Keep up the great work!

    It was a great day and ride and all for a great cause! Laura Klock made me feel right at home and I really enjoyed meeting everyone. Hi Cyril sorry I didn’t get a chance to catch up with you, its been a few years since we met at the Rats Hole show in Daytona. Great coverage on Sturgis though!
