Team Adam's Posted August 10, 2009 Share Posted August 10, 2009 This weekend was my chance to get away for a little relaxation. I took Friday off, cleaned up the house, got our stuff squared away, dropped the little one off with the in laws, jumped into my freshly buffed and Americana'd TBSS with our good friends/neighbors and blasted out to Palm Desert to stay at our family condo in the Ironwood Country Club. We spent the weekend shopping, eating, golfing, eating, drinking wine, eating, lounging at the pool, eating, sitting outside at night and relaxing in the hot tub, eating, eating... did I mention eating?? My GOD I think I put on 15lbs this weekend. We had an absolute blast. I even walked out of the Agua Caliente Indian Casino UP $150!!! Anytime you can walk out of a casino with more than you went in with you've had a good day. Side note: there is nothing more hysterical than when your wife and her friend have a little bit too much to drink and insist on challenging you to arm wrestle. So after our gluttonous hedonistic weekend in the desert we packed up after lunch on Sunday and began the drive back home. We stopped at the Cabazon outlets along the way, did some more shopping (OUCH my wallet!!) and shortly after we got back on the highway we were passed by a biker gang. Now this wasn't your "accountant by day, harley owner on the weekend" type of group... these were some seriously thuggish looking dudes. Beards, tattoos, long hair, leather, and skull accessories were in abundance. I made my move over to the fast lane ramped the grocery getter up to a comfortable 95mph and settled in to cruise the rest of the way home. Shortly thereafter a good amount of the biker contingent slowed down, allowed me to pass then moved into the fast lane behind me. My buddy, sitting in the front seat while the wives had girl talk in the back looks at me and says: "Dude, did you just piss off a biker gang?" I swallowed hard and just maintained my speed. Suddenly I look over and there are a few of them along side of me. OH CRAP. They hover along side me for a bit, then I realize that they're all smiling... and they start to give me thumbs up A couple of them revved up and lurched in an attempt to get me to go... realizing I now had a rolling entourage of bikers I obliged and uncorked it.... ran it all the way up to 130mph and they gave chase. I backed it off and returned to crusing speed, the bikers sped up all giving either the "rock on" hand gesture or thumbs up as they passed. This had to be one of the coolest things thats ever happened to me in the TBSS. Wonder if they'll mail me my leather club vest or should I call them to see where I pick it up Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
