So how old we're you when you got on you first motorcycle. I was at the tender age of around 7 when the older boy up the block took me around the area for a ride for what seemed like forever. A couple of years later when we moved out to the sticks and the two boys my age had bikes and let me ride and ride and ride. I could never talk my mother into one of my own, (not as long as you live here) so when I had the $$$ and a full time job and a place of my own I found my 77 GL1000 for $1300 and yes that is when I found my way in life. I don't blame anyone person or any film of the open road I just can't seem to get enough of it, the sun the air the rain the heat and the people that love the same thing. Ok how about you how old and why and what makes you just love this stuff. O yes the Perkins get together type stuff is the BEST.
