I have been riding motorcycles since 1972. Our family had moved to Louisville, Kentucky and a bunch of the kids in our neighborhood had dirt bikes. I wound up with a Honda 90 and used to love riding the trails.

I had a few beaters while I was going through school, but my first real bike was a Honda CB 750K. I got my first touring bike in 1988 when I found a 1978 Honda Goldwing 1000 sporting a Windjammer fairing and bags with only 5000 miles on it. In 1996, I rode that bike 1200 miles from Saint Louis, Missouri to Durango, Colorado. I currently ride a 2015 Harley Davidson ElectraGlide Ultra Ltd that I have ridden to both the east and west coasts.
