My involvement with motorcycles began later in life than one might expect. My parents were opposed to my having anything to do with motorcycles. In high school, they even subsidized the purchase of a car just to keep me on four wheels. This may very well have saved my life, however my interest in motorcycles never entirely abated. Soon after moving to California I bought my first motircycle–a brand new Honda CB350. What a blast. I rode that thing everywhere. In the years that followed, one bike led to another and my current ride is a BMW R1100RT. The bike is twelve years old now, but is in excellent condition and suits my needs perfectly.
