The Resident SOB (AKA Bruce Horn) : RIP Brother

SOB

I was not really close friends with SOB but I knew him well enough to know he was a good guy.  He was very well liked by everyone that knew him.  He was a  very giving person and did give much of his personal time as well as other things in the Bikers Against Child Abuse Organization.  He was a on air personality for the Four Horsemen show BACA Nation. I was invited to the show by SOB one time to talk about the OklahomaRiders.com website and events.  He helped me get a commercial for the site made and aired on the program by him and the other three great guys that ran it.

I know there are many people hurting right now at the loss of a good friend. I pray for his wife and family right now.  Letting them know that he is in an easier place right now.  His suffering in this life is done and God is taking care of him.  Lord please be with his family and friends and help them to remember the good things he contributed during his short time on this earth.  Help ease the hurting they are feeling right now let them know he is with you looking down at the great things his friends are continuing to do for your children.

If I know one thing about SOB it is that he would want people to celebrate his life much more than mourn his loss. Rest easy brother, you will be missed but you will always be remembered by those who loved you and respected you.

This is The Resident SOB we remember.

2012 Reunion in the bag

Well another one bites the dust.  We had a great time this year with Signal 88 who turned out to be pretty good for a new band.  New Dynasty Rocked as usual and Done Deal was new to several people who really liked them.  I know I had seen them several times before at Sparks and they always do a great job.  Thanks to all the bands for putting on a great show.

Weather was not a problem again this year.  I know it scared a bunch of people off but they really missed out.  Got a little rain in the beginning but then everything cleared off and the party rocked.  You guys are going to learn, this weekend was chosen for a reason.  The weather always turns out to be great.  Everyone always doubts it right up until time. (right tank?)

I really want to thank all the people that put in time and money on this party for coming out and making an effort with me in growing the party.  To the folks who came and partied with us, Thanks to you too.  It takes bodies to make the party.  I cant have all the trimmings without the heads coming in the gate.  Thanks to everyone who came out and made 2012 reunion a success.

Sincerely
Metric

OKR Member Jerald Custard went down

This is the story from the Stillwater Newspress LINK

STILLWATER, Okla. — Jerald Custard, 51, of Stillwater is in serious condition at OU medical center after colliding with a deer.

A report by Oklahoma Highway Patrol shows Custard was driving his motorcycle on Coyle Road near 92nd Street when he struck a deer Thursday shortly before 4 a.m.

Custard was transported by ambulance to Stillwater Medical Center then transferred to OU medical center in serious condition with head and trunk internal injuries, the report states.

The report attributed the cause of the collision to an animal in the roadway.

Special thank you going out to all the paid and unpaid (Volunteer Fire Fighters) in Oklahoma.  Many homes and personal property has gone up over the last week but without you so much more could have gone up.  We know you guys and girls are working around the clock doing all you can.  I think I speak for all the people around Oklahoma when I say Thank you so much!
