I started riding dirt bikes when I was about 8 years old.I ask my oldest brother when I was 15 to borrow his yamaha 650 special for the day. That was a great day and I've been burnin up the streets ever since.I've owned several bikes thru the years (mostly yamahas and never new ones). Then I bought a new 2000' yamaha vstar and loved it. It was a great bike, but what I really wanted was a harley. I started buying older bikes and fixing them up to resale and in 2004' had saved enough to but a new sportster. Man was I hooked!!! Then I bought an old basketcase 78 ironhead rigid to work on as finances would allow. By this time I was wanting something bigger for the wife and I to go on trips with so I decided to check the local shops for roadkings when I ran across an 05' Electraglide Classic that had been traded in and only had 5200 miles on it. The price was right and the same day I decided to buy I got a call from a friend I had only rode with two or three times asking to buy my yamaha. We worked out the details and a week later I was riding home on my Glide. Now I have three harleys in the garage but I still believe its not what you ride its just that you ride and ride and ride!!! RIDE SAFE !!!!
