Have you ever heard of "slingers"?
Started riding bikes at 13 (honda s90) then late teens raced motox campaigning a Husky 400. In my early 20's raced a Yamaha rd 350 in AFM until a nasty crash set me into street riding until I got married. Recent divorce launched me back into riding again with a 1995 r1100 rsl. In between motorcycles I've restored many English cars mainly Mini's or English Fords (locorts or GT's) with a few Lotus's in the mix. Right now at almost the age of 60 yrs. all I would like to do is enjoy riding a vintage bike any chance I can get before they pry my hands off the steering wheel or handlebars.
