Greetings
How rude of me. I got into the forum a month or so ago and did not introduce myself. I am Jim and originally from West Allis, Wisconsin currently working for the Army in Germany. My first riding experience was with my Dad. I guess I was about 8 or 10 years old and he was a State Fair Park policeman. His ride was an old Servicar and he would putt around the park on it. There is also a race trak at the park. I think the Miller 400 is run there today. Anyhow, he took me for a ride without telling my Mother and we ended up on the oval mile. I almost sh*t myself, I was so excited. He swore me to secrecy but now he is gone and my Mother doesn't read this forum. Anyhow, Thanks Dad. Gone to a better place but you left an itch that needs scratching. Today at 52, I ride a Road King Classic. Sure did enjoy that Servicar ride, though.

I have a late uncle who caused the motorcycle mania in me. I was 6 or 7 when I got my first scooter ride. All I remember of the bike was that it was a Harley and it was shiny. Welcome to the forum. Post often.

Welcome ! Enjoyed reading your story about honoring your Dad. I'd also like to thank you for your service.
How's the military life there with all the talk about preparing for Sadam?

Welcome, duffysjim!
Many great folks on this forum! (Do I hear an echo! :D )
You'll enjoy the time you spend here!
I've only been here a coupla weeks myself, but am having a great time.
I, also, had a late uncle that bit me with the 2-wheel bug.
He had a '63 BSA Lightning & I was 10 yrs old.
37+ yrs later, I've never been far from Scooterville.
Ride safe & post often!

Welcome duffysjim,
I think most can relate to your great story. Fishin' and bikin', there ought to be a law requiring Dads to introduce their kids to both.
