Almost 37 years sober -- I am here for you as a sponsor and cheerleader.




I rode my own motorcycle for four years, and began my 12 Step program journey as a young and very scared alcoholic in 1975 (last drink Sept. 1975).

May I help you?

The great love of my life was in a prominent club as a full patchholder. Three years after his death, I met my beloved husband.

I have survived sober just about everything.

Happy belated birthday Kari Ann. Thanks for sharing part of your story. Hope to hear more. Rode over 500 miles yesterday and this morning we will head for the Great Smoky Mountains for several days of fellowship with my brothers in the Combat Vets. Awesome country here in Eastern TN. and Western NC.

Later..............toad the tet vet

May God bless you and all the brothers. I have deep feelings of empathy and concern, although my role as caregiver is in the past. My great hope is an end to war in my lifetime, and my greatest fear is a civil war within this country. The sobriety world is a fellowship, and my belief is that alcohol is a fast acting poison that kills people. Someday society will be so sick of the cost, and unable to afford the cost, that alcohol will begin lessening its grip on our people.

By the way, I am Tennessee means the world to me because of sober friends. Favorite town: Sewanee!
Most hopefully,
Kari Ann

Red face Clean and Sober Bikers Forever in Butte County and Yuba County!!


My late husband and I lived in the Chico/Paradise area, and I remember the fountain in Yuba City!

How can I help the brothers with sobriety support? Anything I can do?


Please remember H&I. In your colors and leathers, you have a better chance than a "suit" in getting through to the kids. I have written short plays about kids' and young men and women in sobriety, from age 10 on. Want to read them? They have been performed at sobriety conferences to applause... I played a motorcycle named Babe.
