    With the hair that used to be, a helmet probably wouldn't be needed. ;)

    I think this picture should fit in here. This is my grandfather taken in 1934.
    He is in the Guinness book of world records as the first trapper in Canada to use an airplane on his trap-line.
    The airplane was a D60 moth it had 60 horse power.

    A Taco mini- bike was my gateway drug too, about 1971. Oldest picture is my aviator of my first street bike, taken in 1983. Motorcycle license before a car license.
