Started riding when I was 33. I am now 36.

2. What was your first bike?
Honda Shadow VLX (600 cc cruiser - )


3. How do you feel about starting so late?

Biggest regret is that it's too late to begin a career as a factory racer.

Although, if I had started earlier, I may not have lived to be 33.


4. What bikes have you progressed to / thru?
1995 Honda Shadow VLX 600 (taught me the joy of riding, also taught me that I am NOT a cruiser guy )

1998 Honda ST1100 (taught me that the best way to cross the country is on two wheels, also taught me that I do NOT like heavy bikes )
2002 Yamaha YZF600R (best street sportbike ever - period - still own it )

2002 Ducati Monster (okay, its my wife's bike, but I love to ride the piss out of it - still own it)

2000 BMW R1150GS (provides the ability to ride in all kinds of weather/situations - my daily commuter/tourer - still own it)

1976 Honda CB750 (been in my family since day 1, its old school, but I get a grin from ear to ear everytime I ride it! - still own it)
