Rentals xi

  • Sturgis hit with a bang!....the town swelled, people bikes Rv's Rv's with trailers, the beer flowed and the good times rolled. The one percenters rolled into town in force, the RUB's the old skool, and the new skool. Chaz and the gang found it hard to keep up. Seemed everyone and his dog wanted to rent a cheap harley. Within hours they had no bikes left. Day rentals and a few weekly....The  girls were run off their feet between taking orders and doing the bookwork. The kids looked after themselves, and the men worked to make sure the machine was well oiled and balanced. Chaz Michael and Chuck sat back under the awning and drank a few beers.

    Chaz turned to his male family members remarking, We should have done this years ago....I can't believe how popular this turned out to be..No bikes left ceptin our own of course. Thats  a fact dad, said Chuck as he took a huge pull on his beer...and let out a huge burp...smacked his lips and smiled. Michael just nodded his head in agreement. Just then the sound of harley's could be heard coming down the street....The men looked up at the sound. I wonder who this could be...said Chaz...It took no time at all before they saw who it was...7 Harleys pulled into the lot....Michael was the first to comment....They're not our bikes...Of the 7 one bike had two on board...Chaz stood and squinted at the procession....It's the Red and White crew...he said....Chaz walked out into the yard to greet the arrivals...

    The man on the back of the two up Harley jumped off, and stood looking at Chaz as he walked across the pavement. Chaz?....you old dog is that you.....Chaz stopped, and took in the man standing before him....Ernie? Damn me i don't believe it, Ernie Carter...whats it been 25 years?...Closer to 30 I 'd say Chaz...the two men hugged biker style....Boys get over here...said Chaz..i wanna introduce you too an old friend of mine....Ernie pushed Chaz back...Not too old Chaz. and he laughed good naturedly...The remaining HA members just stood around their bikes...Say Chaz...I need to ask a favour...Anything Ern...O'k men said Ernie referring to the gathered Red and White..see y├íll back at camp. With that then HA jumped on their bikes and roared off...leaving the older man with Chaz. Michael and Chuck walked over and Chaz introduced them...Ernie stood back and looked at Chuck...been a long time since I saw you boy...Chuck just looked at him...Ernie smiled..Spose its been awhile I don't reckon you'd remember me would ya...Chuck, looked at the man No Sir, I sure don't...In mock disgust suddenly showing on the mans face....Sir..thats my dad ..I'm Ernie..he said grinning and holding out his hand...the men shook...and this is my son in law Michael...Ernie looked at him, Pleased to meet you Mike... holding out his hand again..Michael took the proferred hand and shook it...So Chaz tell me, said Ernie turning to his friend..Hows Thel....he turned and yelled out, Thel get your skinny ass out here....Arrr Ernie....said Chaz looking at his friend...Ernie turned and looked at Chaz...immediately sensing something was wrong...his eyes searching Chaz's eyes for a hint....Oh no Chaz..say it ain't so? the man said....Thel passed, Bros...Shit man I'm sorry to hear that Chaz...you know how much I loved her...How long.....been almost a year now...said Chaz...Damn...Sorry for your loss fella's...Ernie looked genuinely distressed at hearing this bit of news...Maree and Sheila walked out of the shed and stood...looking at the four men standing in the hot sun....Maree said, Who's he?..to Sheila.... I don't know, she replied...but looks as though my dad knows him.....Sheila called out...would you men like a beer? The men looked over and smiled....Well lets get outa this heat said Chaz...we can have a beer and catch up some.....Ernie broke into a smile, Now your talking Brother!....
