    Just stormed up Independence Pass on my KTM 690 Duke Wednesday. Were those your bread crumbs and apple core on the ground? The Duke was great for passing where I probably should not have been but 5th gear with great torque and I zapped by lots of cagers and 18 wheelers. That bike just rocks!

    Just a punk of 59' here , been riding since before they landed on the moon . Had many bikes over the years and enjoyed them all . Just downsized to a Kawasaki X 300 in May . Many joint getting a bit crunchy and I think my days of 1,000 mile days are over . But nothing keeps me going like a good ride . Funny thing about riding by myself 90% of the time , not too many pictures of me on a bike . Here is a group shot from the 2015 Wallowa Valley Jamboree . Myself on the left , Daniel , Carl and then Brian on the end . Snow level was high and we were at about 7,200' elevation . CIMG0717.jpg

    Had a great, 2 hour ride today. My son plays college football, so I watched the game, didn't get out to ride till after 4.

    My V7 II Stone is 3 weeks old, and has as much mileage on it as I put my Thunderbird from April to August.

    This thread i inspiring. I'll be the big 40 next month, and I've been on two wheels since I was 7. If life treats me as well as you guys, I've got several more decades of adventure.

    56 when I bought this KLR 4 years ago. My only riding before that was when I was 15 or so on a friend's dirt bike. My son wanted to learn to ride and get a bike so I agreed to take the MSF class with him and see where it all would lead to. It's been a fun adventure so far even with a few off road spills. We ride almost all weekends and year round to work.
