I'm the Air Force stationed overseas in Japan. Started riding in '96 with a break of 6 years ending in 2002 when I picked up a sportster. Then an idiot pulled out in front of me in an intersection and that's all I have to say about that. With the settlement check I got an '02 deuce. I was in the right place at the right time. Plus, I had the money to take advantage of the situation.
