His last column had real direction. Any insight as to what the differences of opinion were? Thanks, Bob
    Here you go Bob. Buck's pretty clear on what the issue was on the show http://www.blogtalkradio.com/theroad...s-to-milwaukee

    And to be honest you have to respect Buck for this. He is only 23 years old and stood up for his beliefs. I'm sure it was not easy resigning from that position

    Buck sounds like a reasonable, thoughtful guy, with a simple, clear-cut mission to share his love for old bikes. Unfortunately, he's dealing with a lawyer. Lawyers are invaluable when it comes to hacking, and hewing their way through the legal jungle; the problem is, when they get to the clearing, they don't stop hacking and hewing.

    My son is 16 owns a 42 WLA in his name, loves old bikes, membership came up for renewal this month and he said "let it run out I can just read your mag dad".
    The majority of the "Club" wants an old farts only club so be it, you have taken another step towards it. Enjoy.

    That's really too bad. I don't think you can force someone into old bikes, but your son already has that desire covered. Why doesn't he want to renew his membership? Does he feel the club needs to do more activites that would be more geared to his age, not enough people his age in the club? Bob

    D, all the above.
    Its a dead horse that has been beaten so many times I am tired of beating.
    The AMCA will eventually run its course and die.
    If a business does not invest in new tools, technology or people it also dies.
