    Stupid Things Beginners Do

    Had A Flat Tire

    Fellow Harley riders came to my rescue. Couldn't salvage the days ride but I didn't have to wait by the road long before I had all the help I needed. Harley riders are great. I'm sure there are nice Honda, Yamaha, etc. riders but they didn't stop that day. Thanks guys!

    I started riding mini bikes at the age of five.

    I soon grew into small dirt bikes. As I got older I went on to ride large dirt bikes and by the time I was twelve I got my first street bike. I have had several street bikes but I always wanted the prize in the window a Harley Davidson. At age forty I was finally able to get the...
