I was wondering if anyone had a special memory of someone that influenced them in the direction of Harley's. I've owned bikes since I was 15 and I have had quite a few. Not till a couple of yrs ago did I purchase an Ultra Classic, my first Harley. But, I remember my Grandfather rode a Harley. when I was young I looked forward to going for visit because I knew he would make sure I got a couple of rides during the stay. He used to ride Indian Chief's then finally a harley. His last one he purchased in 1965 in Abilene,Tx I believe off the showroom floor. He and my Granmother took a couple of trips to California on the machine. I think he purchased that one because it was the first year of electric start or at least the first for him. I was in Lafeyette, Indiana this year visiting the wife's folks and the dealer there had a 1964 in their showroom. I took several pics. It brought back memories of my Grandfather and his Harley. I often wondered, if he had been around in my teen yrs if I would have had a harley a lot earlier in life. We sure shared the same passion of two wheels.
