My Story, I have rode cycles of all sorts since I was 7. Then I did the marriage / kids thing. In 1984 I thought we were in the position to buy a bike but when I informed the lil Mrs. I was buying a Harley she said if it comes home we are DIVORCED! 1 week later I rode in on a 81 Lowrider. To make a long story short I now ride a 97 Ultra and she all 115 pounds rides a 98 Heritage. The kids are gone and we have been married for 24 great years. Now the FREEDOM part,, I have been a member of A.B.A.T.E. of Minnesota since 1988 and also the State Rally Co-chair for A.B.A.T.E. If any of you think for 1 minute that your right to ride just happened your fools! It has taken alot of hard work and sweat and money by people in a M.R.O ( Motor Rights Org ) to get those FREEDOMS for you. Please consider becoming a member of one in your state. For those in and close to Minnesota come to our State Rally Labor Day weekend in Regal Minnesota and stop by Lake Chapters Tent. Ask for Vinnie and I will come welcome you to a great event. to check us out click on > www.abatemn.org . till then thanks for letting me post this.
