I am a Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy and have been serving for 12 years. I started riding motorcycles in 2001. My first bike was a V-Star 650. The salesman suggested going larger, but I thought 650 was too much as it was. However, one week after buying it, I wished I have gone much bigger. So my next bike, purchased in 2006, was the Yamaha Stratoliner- 1854cc; significantly bigger.
I love to ride, but I don’t like cold or wet weather. Spending most of my riding time in San Diego, CA, I get to ride in the best weather almost year round, so I don’t see the need to ride in bad weather. I love to ride with friends and discovering new roads I’ve never been on before. Isn’t that why we all ride- get on the bike, get lost and spend the rest of the day finding our way home- adventure!
I enjoy riding these long distance timed rides. I once did 1000 miles in 21 hours. I am planning another trip that will take me from Mexico to Canada in 36 hours. Of course I think I’ll take a week to come back. I would love to make it to Sturgis one day.
