On the way to Yukon Crossing September 2016
On the way to Alaska 1971. Bought it new after finishing tour in Southeast Asia. Still have it stored in Oregon desert for respite rides from dark winters here. 72 years young. managed every numbered AK hiway every year since 2013 (retired) including two trips up the Dempster in NWT
Alaska is on my extended bucket list.
55 and still riding and racing dirt bikes.
Jebus! Had a 72 Bonnie for a few years in the late 70's. Great bike but there is no way I could do any extended hiway trips on it now. My hands would swell into balloons from the vibrations.
Every year my wife and I take a motorcycle vacation,the old Honda can carry us very well but anything more than about 250 miles my wife starts to wear out.
So this year we took a different bike and we're all the way up to 325 miles a day
My first new motorcycle was a 1961 Triumph T120 Bonneville. It was a beautiful motorcycle, but I only kept it about one year.
I have a friend that rode the Dempster Hwy this past week. I sure wish that I was on this trip with him.
"short" rides in the desert ... because pretty quick it will break down
Very poetic post and I can relate to all of it (well except for 'Gramps'. Neither of my sons have sniffed the family concept and they are both in their thirties!).
But I can relate to your road racing time because I tried that too (E production in the 60's). I couldn't afford the tires... I re-learned that lesson with both of my sons in AMA motorcycle road racing. But we spent the money, they made their mark, and the experience is irreplaceable... for everybody!
And lastly, my spouse has the same sort of wisdom during emotional events for me. "You may want to, but not today..."
Way back in May of 1974 I bought a brand new BMW R90/6.
It's still sitting in the back of my shed with 172,000 miles on it.
Hasn't been ridden in years. Looking pretty sad.
I'm enjoying my current Goldwing GL1500 so much that I
really have no great urge to restore the BMW.
By the way, at 67 years old, I still enjoy dragging things in
the turns on the Goldwing. Haven't slowed down a bit
over the years.
Sell it to someone so they can make it live again.....
Retired, 68 , lost in the Monashees, weestrom behaving beautifully, eventually will locate road to 3Valley Gap.
65 years old, old fart playing around on Rampart Range Road.
60 years old, outside the bike shop, after buying a new 2016 MG V7 II Stone:
No other pics with both me and the bike in them since buying the bike, I mostly ride by myself.
Congrats on the new bike, it is good to see another Moto Guzzi rider in here.
64 and Guzzi to the core!
That is a beautiful bike.
I've been enjoying your posts for quite a while. Had no idea that you were an old fart.
Thank you! By far the best bike I've ever owned...
