I want to pose a question here. ...
Why is it that I can sit and write a blog about something, but when it comes to saying something about myself I become completely baffled?Â Maybe I don't consider myself all that interesting but find so much of the world interesting, and sometimes baffling.Â When I was young 50 sounded really old, but as it approaches around the corner, I still feel young except for the normal aches and pains.Â One of my biggest joys besides the family is getting on the bike when I get home off the road.Â BeingÂ an over the road truck driver doesn't leave me alot of quality riding time right now.Â But even though I rode when I was younger, the riding now seems so much more enjoyable.Â Why is that I wonder?Â That seems to be a common thread with alot ofÂ us older riders.Â Maybe we're just past the point of wanting to be considered "cool", and just want to enjoy what makes us happy.Â Or maybe we just know at this point in our lives that it's not the destination but the journey.Â Â For theÂ new members here taking a look, I hope you enjoy yourself and don't be afraid to speak up or ask questions.Â 99% of the people here are good,Â decent, hard working people from allÂ over the world that haveÂ one thing in common.Â The passion of riding.Â Ride hard, ride safe, and keep those knees in the breeze!Â Â Â Â

Interest and hobbies:
Bikes, Reading just about anything I can get my hands on, And football, Pro-college anything football is something I like.
I would like to meet:
Any of the people I've met on CC. They're good people. Not interested in meeting any celebrities, sports stars or politicians. I don't have any heroes, or idols or a leader. I rely on pure inner strength.
Honest and straightforward. Can get along with pretty much anyone as long as they don't try to b.s. me. Will see straight through ya, been around too many truckdrivers ace!
Don't know how to be subtle. Will lay things out in the open, take it or leave it kind of guy. Am sometimes too honest to my own detriment.
Favorite bands and musicians:
At my age there are too many decades to cover and try to pin down my favorites from each genre. As long as it's good I'll listen, and I'm always willing to listen to someone that's new and trying to make a name for themselves. Guys I listen to the most, Travis Tritt, Stevie Ray Vaughn (THE Texas Tornado) and Robert Cray.
Again, too many to list. With 5 decades of movies I can't even think of all of them. The one that I'd watch again and again is, The Godfather.
Favorite TV shows:
Don't watch T.V. It's pablum for the masses. Never believe the news because they're lying to you. If you want to experience what it's like to be a mental patient on thorazine and in a haze, just watch the news or any newschannel. They don't tell you anything.
Favorite books, magazines, and writers:
Like all different books. One of my favorite writers I guess would be Jeffery Deaver. One of his books was "The Bone Collector". Great book and equally made movie. Favorite mags-anything bike related. Could care less about the skin mags. Waste of paper and brain intellect.
Favorite blogs and websites:
and any bike site that's worth a crap.
Favorite games, sports, and teams:
Football-Dallas Cowboys/Denver Broncos
Baseball-Boston Red Sox
Hockey-Detroit Red Wings
My bike, enough said.
What's to be scared of except the stupidity of our government and the idiotic greed of wall street. Other than that, everythings perfect, right?
