Better Late Than Never

A friend taught me to ride his Yamaha XT600 on a highway construction site in South Africa when I was 26. I spent the next six months riding all over South Africa. I then proceded to not touch a bike for the next 15 years. At 40 I had a mild mid life crisis and decided it was time to start riding again. Took the MSF class and bought a KLR650 and fitted it out for touring. I sold the KLR with about 16,000 miles on it last winter and picked up a KTM950. Heading up to Dawson City Yukon and then to Inuvik Northwest Territory in a couple of weeks. I try to make one good trip a year and as many day trips as I can in a season and hope to keep going for the foreseeable future.
