Single malt and blended Whisky’s

Well, where to start, Bob, Limp, Skull and I, Brass, don’t hesitate to try some of the more ‘odd’ Whisky’s etc from practically all over the world.
Peated ones, double barrels, quarter casks, IPA’s, project X whisky’s, 8, 10, 12, 15, 18 years old and so on. Yeahhhhhh…. and even some blended type’s, like black, double black, green, blue and whatever colour you can imagine. You’ll name it.

And sometimes you begin to think that you’ve tasted ‘enough’ to know the difference between most of them. And then, all of a sudden, a strange one pops up every now and then.

Anyway, weekend was knocking on the door yesterday and Corona shit keeps a lot of us more or less ‘inside’. So, tasting Whisky ain’t such a bad way to fill up your lost or wasted hours.

In my spare time I dig up old Easyriders magazines and scan them onto my computer and save these scans as a ‘sort of’ digital copy. That idea popped up when our former clubhouse burned down to the ground.
And while scanning Easyriders Magazine number 171, from September 1987, I stumbled over an old advert on page 29. I thought I’d seen them all, Whiskey’s that is, – as a matter of speaking of course. In those years I wasn’t that interested into Whiskey’s or Single malt Whisky’s and so on.
That’s why my eyes never got my attention for this above mentioned advert.

By the sound of it, it makes me wonder…. Did he create a Whiskey or a new kind of ‘fish-sauce’?
Anyway, see below what his creation was called in 1987. I don’t think it still exists, and if it does, I’d like to have a taste of it. Ha, ha, maybe I’ll start walking again after a few sips of his brew….. Who knows?

New York Donny (NYD) from Brother Speed and Tammy

In 2014 we celebrated our 35th Anniversary and lots of close friends came over to this event in Opmeer to party together with us. From all corners of the world they flew or rode over to our clubhouse.
Two of them, New York Donny from Brother Speed, Oregon, and Tammy, his girlfriend, stayed at my place.

I can tell you that we had a lot of fun. We suggested to do some sightseeing. And they where all into the ‘old stuff’ like the windmills, old buildings, dikes and so on. We have a small car with only two doors, so to get in the back of the car is a bit of a hassle. So, when my wife Dionne started the car to go to certain places with me also in the front of the car and NYD and Tammy in the back, New York Donny panicked. He started sweating and all and making non verbal noises. So we asked him what was going on ‘back there’. It turned out be that NYD was a bit of claustrophobic, especially in ‘small’ Dutch cars. And also the windows couldn’t be opened in the back of our car and before we knew it, he was standing outside again, next to our car to get his ‘act together’ again. And if this part existed at the Olympics, New York Donny would have broken all records.

We suggested that he should drive the car and that we should give him the directions where to go. NYD next to me in the front and last but not least, open front windows. But driving a car in Holland ain’t the same as driving in America he soon found out. Tight corners, small roads, different rules at the roundabouts and so on…

Now, I won’t go any further into detail, but I can assure you; ‘it took a while before he got the hang of it’. And for Tammy, Dionne and me….. Well, we enjoyed it all the same. All and all we had a great day with perfect weather. What more could we wish…?

Here some more pictures of N.Y.D. Tammy and me.

Big Jos

Last Friday we commemorated Big Jos. Sadly he died four years ago. Yesterday four years ago was his funeral. Due to Corona restrictions these past few years just about almost everything has been going a bit, or even a lot, different.

And of course, at our clubhouse it’s the same as written above. That doesn’t mean we didn’t raise a toast on Big Jos, on the contrary, but without ‘outsiders’.

We all remember Big Jos as a person with two right hands. What his eyes saw, his hands could make. But these same hands weren’t too afraid to throw a few punches if it turned out to be necessary.

Big Jos also build his own boat. The photo below shows Big Jos in 2006 standing on top of his Boat in his ‘better days’.

Ride safe up there Bro,

Chop, Ride & Party Roadbook 2021

For two years in a row Beer and Kim could not present their 5th Roadbook during our RMC Choppershow.

From their Roadbooks, now well known in the biker scene, they again saw ‘Chop, Ride & Party’ roll off the printing presses this year. This year, 2021, both had imagined something different with regard to their book presentation.

But, just like our Choppershow, their dream also went up in smoke due to the still valid Covid-19 restrictions.

But don’t worry, the book can now be ordered online for a few days for € 42.50 via their webshop at at www.choprideandparty.com

RMC Choppershow 2021

Well, for the second time in a row no RMC Choppershow on Easter Sunday. This year it will again be canceled due to Covid-19 restrictions. And yes, the vaccination program is slowly but surely gaining momentum worldwide. The Netherlands still has some catching up to do here, by the way, but that aside.

We, Rogues MC Opmeer and Almere, assume for the time being that the coming year the Choppershow can continue. And to keep you in the mood, here are some old snaps from previous years.

Ride safe and stay healthy,

RMCF
