I have tried just about everything and found what I prefer. I didn't just decide that I liked old vehicles without trying new ones. But to me there is just no comparison. Old wins hands down. It's not even close. I am not a modern person, and I don't like the modern way of life. I don't even have a smartphone. I got my first computer back in 1993. It had 420MB of RAM. It was fun to play with. This was before the internet. I had no idea what this simple device would eventually evolve into. I got my first cell phone in 1987. It was a car phone, and had to be installed in the car. Nothing but a regular phone that did not require any wires. Again I had no idea what such a simple device would eventually become. I am on the internet because I live alone, and there are forums for people with the same interests as mine. In my whole life I have only personally known one person who rode a motorcycle. I currently know two people who ride scooters. And they are not local. But as nice as having this resource is, it is certainly not without it's problems. Red and scootrboi, I hope things are going well. I have not forgotten this is your thread. I hope to be able to make it down there sometime in the not to distant future (on a scooter) after it cools off a bit, if you are not too busy. I do realize everybody has to make a living.
