I’m, back from the “bash”…they didn’t have Wild Turkey, but they had plenty of Maker’s Mark, so I was fine. I know, it’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it!
As for what I ride, it depends on where I’m going and what I’m doing. My main ride at present is a ‘95 Honda Shadow vt 1100c2, which I have put over 85,000 miles on since I got it. I also have (for puttin’ around town) a semi-restored '71 Moto Guzzi Ambassador 750 - which is a different thing altogether. During the same time I was putting the 85,000 miles on the Shadow, I also put over 50,000 miles on a Honda Valkyrie (sweet!) which I sold to fund another year of oldest daughter’s college (I had a bad year! ).
I’m fortunate enough to live within 15 miles or so of a world-class motorcycle road - The Angeles Crest Highway (Cal state hwy 2), and have been know to burn 50 miles of twisties on an “extended lunch” several times a week.
I love to ride - ideally, in chunks of over 1,500 miles at a time - I’m a fairly regular denizen of some of the seedier dive bars in the Southwestern U.S., especially the Utah, Arizona badlands. Rock ON!
