Ira (#66) 8-18-12

I met Ira at a rest stop on I75, on the west coast of Florida. I like meeting Harley guys, and Ira is one. He readily agreed to be photographed and said that he has not had a picture made in four years. Now he has.

Five years ago, on this bike, Ira had an accident resulting in over 150 stitches on his face. The plastic surgeon did a good job, I could not see the scar. As a Viet Nam Veteran, he often rides with a club made up of military retirees, including all branches of the service. Ira likes that retired Sargents and Colonels ride together, there is no class distinction.

Next summer he plans to ride to South Dakota for a rally that draws over 1,000 bikes. Yow! Unlike many bikers, Ira has no tattoos.
