Five members and three bikes met up for a tasty breakfast before heading up to Waldo for some fried bologna and creme pie! – June 2, 2018. Unfortunately we lost on one the way due to bike trouble. Of course he got a new (to him) bike out of the deal…
Please welcome new members Tony and Lisa Dilts. They hail from Springfield and recently joined us on their first ride, the Fried Bologna Run. Please be sure to say hello when you see them on their next ride. They’re the ones on the bench in the picture below with Dee.
Did you miss the Fried Bologna Run? Well, if you did, you have another chance at it. And a bonus! A visit to the Iron Pony motorcycle superstore!

Received today from National. Please keep Rick’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
To all Members of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club. It is with extreme sadness that I am announcing the passing of of our SCRC Founder, Rick Rickster Perry. Rickster was found deceased earlier this evening. Please keep Rickster's family in your prayers. I am at a loss for words, because Rick has been a close friend for many years. Those who knew him, loved him. Rick was a unique individual and it shows through his vision for the Southern Cruisers Riding Club concept. I will be announcing the arrangements as soon as I get the information from his family. Bill Presley SCRC National President

Please give a warm welcome to new member Kevin Massie! He was recruited by Mark Bamberger and has already attended a ride with us.
I’m so sorry to report that I have to cancel tomorrow’s pre-ride to the Blessing of the Bikes. I’m dealing with a family emergency which is going to extend through tomorrow, and I don’t have an alternate to lead the ride. As of now, the Blessing is still on, weather permitting. You can watch the Blessing Facebook page for any weather related cancellation there. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Please join us for a pre-ride enjoying some country roads as we make our way to the Blessing of the Bikes at Kil-Kare Raceway in Xenia May 20, 2018. This annual event combines great food, vendors, live music and what amounts to a Holy Water fight as clergy members bless and sprinkle Holy Water on the thousands of bikes in attendance. It’s a good time, even if you’re not of the faith!
Meet us for an optional breakfast at Cracker Barrel in Middletown at 0800. If you’re not hungry, just be sure to be there by 0845 for the ride briefing prior to the 0900 kickstands up.
The ride ends at the Blessing. You’re free to enjoy the event and leave at your leisure. Admission is $3 per person or $5 per couple.
