After waiting for 34 years, I have finally bought my first motorcycle. 2 years prior was on a 250cc scooter. Made a fairly large jump going from the 250cc scooter (still use it for errands) to the 2011 model 865cc Triumph Speedmaster which I really enjoy. A newbie to the site. I have kept up with technology, but the one's I have avoided are the social sites, twitter, myspace, facebook, etc. Guess this will be my social network since it has specialized in my interest. I have a lot of lost time to make up in the world of motorcycling. Just hope my body holds out for the next 10-15 years.
Enjoy "All motorcycles", ATV's, snowmobiles, boating, virtually any thing with motors for the outdoors. Also like creativity shown in customized cars and motorcycles.
Only a few rules to live by: "Do unto others as you would have them do to you", "every gun is a loaded gun" and never point the gun at anything or anyone you do NOT want to shoot", plus the 10 commandments. Trying to keep life simple.
Ride to Live, Live to Ride
Interest and hobbies:
Other than cruising around, playing racquetball and watching our 2 dachshunds sniffing out critters.
Also believe highly in the 2nd amendment, what my dogs won't scare aware will have to deal with my other friends, Smith & Wesson, Mr. Glock, etc.. If more people carried, then there would be less crime.
I would like to meet:
Other motorcycle riders in the Medford, OR area who like to tour locally around the countryside. Once I get a backrest on my Triumph, I'll be able to ride longer and further.
Best and worst may be the same deciding which side of the fence you sit, I don't tolerate smoking of any type or alcohol while riding or abuse of it.
I'm pretty hard of hearing even with hearing aides on
Favorite bands and musicians:
60-90's rock, some alternative,
Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi, Rolling Stones
(hope I'm still riding like they are touring, albeit a bit slower, but still rockin on when I'm 65)
Men in Black series, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings,
Fast and Furious Series, any good drama mystery action movie
Most important - a movie named "Crash" about being a snob toward others when that person in turn could be the one who saves your life
Favorite TV shows:
Jay Leno, Comedy Central
