Ok, is this the uncomfortable silence part. Let's start with everybody's favorite subjects; ourselves and our motorcycles. I'll start.
Originally from Valle Hermoso tamps. Love Mexico AND the US. Grew up dirt poor but managed to get my first bike at 16 sans my mother's permission.
I was a motorcyclist before I even rode one. I'd buy the magazines and dream.
Started on an evil piece of junk Suzuki TM250; I was naive and got screwed on the deal. Went to a 70's XL250 (sweet) and ventured onto the street a bit. Went on to an 80's XL250 (sweeter) which I rode to college eventually adding a 750 Nighthawk (the power!). I was already deep in my career before I got a K100RT, nice-very nice and then the ones currently in the stable; the VFR, KLR, KDX and GS in that order. The GS is my go to bike. I LOOOOOVE that thing.
