Traveling is awesome! It allows you to live in the now. Not only does it make you aware of the world around you; but it makes you aware of a life or lifestyle you may have thought or never thought of. Traveling not only broadens your mind but teaches you to take things as is. In some cases you will find your local press may be denying you the opportunity to experience something wonderful due to propaganda. Are you ready to leave your comfort zone?
THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME / THE FASTEST NIMBUS IN THE WORLD: LARS NIELSEN
Special Guests: Lars Nielsen, Builder, Bonneville Salt Flats Competitor
For every motorcycle and car enthusiast, the Bonneville Salt Flats hold a special place near and dear to our hearts. The Salt Flats are the home of speed; every year, motorheads from all over the world travel to the state of Utah in an attempt to push their machines and themselves to the limit. Speed is the name of the game, and some of the most incredible pieces of engineering in the world are in attendance to play that game. This week on Classic Chrome, be sure to tune in as we interview our first international guest. Joining us this week from Denmark is Mr. Lars Nielsen, who is in the process of building what is undoubtedly going to be the world’s fastest Nimbus motorcycle. Nimbus motorcycles were produced by the Danish firm Fisker and Nielsen from 1919 until 1960. These machines were powered by a 749cc, single overhead cam, inline four cylinder engine that produced between 18-22 horsepower, hooked up to a three speed transmission with shaft final drive. A stock Nimbus is capable of cruising at 55 mph with a short top speed burst of 75 mph; Lars is in the process of building a rip-roaring example which he will be campaigning at Bonneville this year. Lars’ Nimbus is set into a custom, low-slung frame and the motor comes complete with a supercharger. No matter how fast his machine goes, it will likely become the fastest example of the Danish four cylinder in the world.

TODAY our show will be about the details of the Feb. 13, 1965 speech:
THE AMERICAN SLAVE CODE in THEORY AND PRACTICE: its distinctive features shown by its statues, judicial decisions, and illustrative facts.WILLIAM GOODELL
2.) Free peopled of color may be and continually are brought into Slavery, in this country, in a variety of ways. Some of these ways have been already specified, incidentally, while treating of other topics. Some will be specified hereafter. And they will be clustered together and averted again, in a chapter on "The Liberties of the Free People of Color." In the mean time, the topic demands attention here, in our inquiry concerning the subjects of slavery, and we shall cite some particulars which need not be repeated again. The general fact of the enslavement of the free colors people, of the facility with which it is done, and the indifference, not to say the connivance, of the Southern Courts, will appear from the following: Davis vs. Sanford, Spring Term 1815; 6 Littell's Ky. Rep., 206.
FREE SOCIAL WORSHIP AND RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION PROHIBITED: The Government not only permits the Master to forbid the free Social Worship and religious Instruction of his Slave, at his pleasure, but it also steps in with direct prohibitions of its own, which even the Master himself may relax or abrogate.
"But despite the fact that I saw that Islam was a religion of brotherhood, I also had to face reality. And when I got back into this American society, I'm not in a society that practices brotherhood. I'm in a society that might preach it on Sunday, but they don't practice it on no day--on any day. And so, since I could see that America itself is a society where there is no brotherhood and that this society is controlled primarily by racists and segregationists--and it is--who are in Washington, D.C., in positions of power." Malcolm El Haji Shabazz
Back in 1964 Bob Dylan sang the song, "The Times They Are a-Changin' ". Just how much times have changed since then is absolutely mind-boggling. Technology, education, parenting, attitudes, you name it, it has changed and changed drastically. Today's world certainly is a" DIFFERENT WORLD than where we came from."
Life brings on changes to be sure. We want to know what you think about how and why the times have evolved.

EDUCATION PROHIBITED TO AFRCAN AMERICAN SLAVES BY LAW because if we were deemed as sentient beings with all the HUMAN aspects of life eternal we would know how we came to be, when we came to be, what we were then and what we are now. Eternal in our blackness that we were created in our skins, so no amount of getting on your knees and begging any God for your freedom because it will never come. We the people of this world will make ourselves free. My thoughts are that at all cost God who is the one who created us all knows what we need, but if we do not initiate a desire to change our conditions they will not change, the creator tells me that our conditions will not change until we ourselves change. Open up our minds to what our leaders taught us and use that knowledge. It is to open the mind to the light of liberty to which we so richly deserve, to lavish ourselves in. There is no more pleading, there is only Revolution complet and total change of what the Captors want from us, knowledge is the key. Repartions for all the misdeeds done to us is the only solid foundation of Revolution on which we must stand a complete and total change tothe systems of White, Immperalist state under which we are all being forced to live under. Yet to even Educate our children about Revolution is wrong, this absurd. This day is the day we set aside to morn our loss of our Ancestors of the Civil War "The Colored Soilders". Denied everthig
"In the house of Delegates of Virginia, in 1832, Mr. Berry said: "We have, as far as possible, closed every avenue by which light might enter their ( the slaves) minds. If we could extinguish the capacity to see the light, our work would be completed; they would then be on a level with the beast of the field, and we should be safe! I am certain that we would not do it, if we could find out the process,and that on the plea of necessity."
