Eh? 30 years in a cage; back on two wheels.



Ok, the title says it all... I been a driver of various and sundry motor vehicles since I was 14, earliest you could get a learners permit where I come from. I got introduced to riding via a former roommate, in my 2nd year in college, and loved doing everything on his motorcycle. 10 minutes of instruction on the controls, and I was off down and around the block. Layed the bike down on my first turn, and slid under a parked car... :-) Picked it back up, and finished going around the block. I was hooked. Phil and I rode that Honda 250 Dirt/Street everywhere. Two guys on the bike and go.

About 3 years ago, my wife and I took the MCSC in California, and both of us passed, but I didn't go immediately and get my license, so, I had to go and pass the written here in Nevada a little bit ago, which was no problem. Then I went and bought an 02 KLR650, put 500 bucks into it, and I've been riding almost everyday.

It's on average 85 plus degrees here in Vegas at 0600 this time of year and 105 by 1200 which means that we ride early in the AM and we've got a couple of good pieces of gear for the heat.

Always been an ATGATT kinda guy, and we've done some fun little rides already. I'm going to Westfest in NM in a bit, but I figured I'd post some of the rides we've done to tune the bikes and the butts.
