    Holloman AFB Wolf Pack Ride

    On Monday 10/6/08 the White Sands Missile Range Safety Riders Group ( Wolf Pack ) took a 140 mile round trip run to Holloman AFB to celebrate BG Rick McCabe's retirement and honor his leadership as General of White Sands ( ps , he rides a K1200). Upon arrival at Holloman we were taken to see the new F22 , by invitation of Col Mike McGee and a photo session. After a blessing from the USAF chaplin , Lt Col Gary Garvey, also a rider, we picked up about 35 or more riders from the USAF safety group (Raptors) and at 90 strong we rode Hwy 54 back to the Oro Grande gate of White Sands ( eastern most gate) and across White Sands Test Area back to post.
    We had a luncheon and a couple of speeches there and the announcement of our new MSF training coarse on post.
    The day was fantastic . The weather was great , lots of nice guys , and all types of bikes were welcome. We had all ages and types of people from the Brigadier General to civilians.






    Thanks , Mike Fifer

    PS , just got this note from General McCabe.

    Just a note to express my sincere thanks to Sammie, Darrell, Randy Grunow, Col Mike McGee, Mr Salinas and all our Friends who made this ride wonderful! I depart with a great memory of a great morning on the road with you all. You have so many more in store as well. Here is to a future of safe fun and comradeship. I could not have asked for a better event for a last ride with the Pack... That is, last ride for now!
    God Bless!

    Nice! I'd almost be tempted to trade my GS for that F22.

    Yup, include me in.
    I'll swap my '07 RT for an F22, no problem!

    I think the fuel consumption and the insurance premiums on the F-22 might be a problem for some of us.

    OH YEAH ! and big ones!
    They are hanging open in the pictures. They look perfect for your Ipod , water bottle , and cruise missile.
