Kevin Cagle - Cathy Coats (pg2) - Photographers 2020
Kevin Cagle - This is my 3nd term as Photographer for our Chapter but have been been a HOG Member since 1994 and a Life Member almost as long and a member of numerous Chapters over the years. I first started out on Mini bikes when I was 11 or 12 years old but my first REAL motorcycle was a new 125cc Kawasaki dirt bike which was soon modified to a 175! Soon after that a 1968 250cc Harley Sprint joined my stable. After joining the Navy in 1974 I bought myself a 1976 650cc 4 Cyl Kawasaki which even went with me on board ship sometimes when we visited other ports. Thru the years I have never been without something to ride whether it was 3 Wheelers, Dirt bikes or Street bikes. A 1990 Softail Custom got me back to riding Harleys again and into HOG and I haven't looked back.

It did not take me long being a passenger with my wonderful husband that I realized it would be much more fun being an operator. I went out and bought my own bike and got my endorsement….in that order. I’ve been riding since 2012. I have had a Sportster and Softail Slim. Currently, I have a Heritage Softail and a Tri Glide. I enjoy riding and the friendship immensely.
I joined the Southern Thunder chapter at the beginning of 2016 and have thoroughly enjoyed the friendships I have made. We were welcomed with love at our first meeting and it’s been a wonderful journey. I love traveling, especially on my bike and with chapter friends.
I’ve been married to James Coats for a fabulous 25 years. We married swiftly 3 months after we met. I have one son who is a Youth Minister in Dyersburg, TN with my wonderful daughter in law and 3 grandsons. I have 2 precious fur babies, Blue and Harley.
When I’m not playing, I am managing owner of a trucking company that hauls U.S. Mail. I’ve been managing the company since 1993.
I am very proud of being a 2 time breast cancer survivor. I am here today by the grace of God and the loving support of my husband.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:1
I am always willing to help and I if I don’t offer, don’t be afraid to ask.
If you act like you know what you’re doing, everybody will think that you do.
