At 55 and still " ridin' like I stole it "............so would like to think !
I started when , can't remember what year it was '66 or so,, but my neighbor bought a MOPED and we ran it up and down the alleyways of our CA. neighborhood as if we were bikers, probably saw "Easy Rider" and still were excited. Then he got a Kawasaki 90 and damn "we" were bad dudes in the alleyways for sure. Then after high school "I" bought a Suzuki 400 that was a hell of a one cyclinder thumper, then a Honda 550 four cyclinder and after that I laid off a few years ( like 5+ ) till I bought a cherry Triumph Bonne 750 from a fireman who got a Goldwing. Ran that about 5 yrs and sold it to a traveling buyer from Az who said his father would love it ( regret I sold that one ). Laid off about 14 yrs "just cause" and got the bug again to ride, wife calls it male menopause/change of life crap, but I say it's livin' ! Bought a '90 Venture Royale from the original owner as I always wanted a bagger ! Was great for about 7+ yrs and started looking at HD RoadGlides which I still gawk at, especially the $$$$ ! So I ended up with a RS
as I always had my eye on them and couldn't pass up the deal on my Silverado besides saving $$ which made Mama happy.
Bottom line is, today at 55, I'm an everyday rider compared to my younger years when it ran just because it sat in my garage. My wife dogs me about already getting a trike, but I tell her only when I can no longer "hold it up between my legs" !
Guys, God be with you when you ride..........
