Biker Bird

From Mark Lucy: There is an article in the June 2001 issue of Virginia Full Throttle magazine about a Blue and Gold Macaw parrot that has logged over 15,000 miles riding with his “dad” on a motorcycle. I think any Parrothead would find this very, very interesting, especially some of the things that this bird has been taught.

What’s blue and gold and can ride a Harley like nobody’s business? Spike, an 8 year old macaw parrot from Manassas, VA who has ridden over 15,000 miles. Check out this months magazine to learn all about how Spike, with the help of his dad, Mike has learned the true meaning of “keeping the wind under your wings”. Each month our readers will get a “birds eye view” of local events, rides and runs that Spike will be attending. Keep a look out for this amazing biker bird!
