I've been riding a while, I'm 63... As a teen in the sixties, had a few Honda fifties... Friends had Triumph 650's, rode them a bit. I was nineteen I bought a 1952 FL, $300, drove it home... Still have it, runs... More recently have had a few Japanese rockets...
Just bought a 2007 FXDL from a guy, 195 miles on it... Lots of fun.
Got the service manual, Power Commander V, K&N, drilled the mufflers, welded up some handlebars... Starting to feel pretty good.
I work in the entertainment industry, setting up staging for shows, mostly industrials... Have worked in auto machine shop, ten years+, car parts- US, German...
I also have old Ford model A, Flathead V8+ associated junk pile.
