A big kid???
« on: May 15, 2015, 06:29:10 pm »
Anyone else think they have an over active imagination or feel like they might never have grown up??

Am I the only one who in their head while riding is in a spaceship..... in a fighter plane..... in a submarine???

Lovely ride home today where I was Han Solo flying the Millennium Falcon doing the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs...

Motorcycling is the only hobby/activity that I have never been, or gotten, bored with.  I have been riding since 5 years old and I still enjoy a simple ride, like my commute to work.  I missed four months last summer due to shoulder surgery, and my first ride after recovery was the coolest feeling ever. 

Never grow up!

Cropbiker,

You are not alone.  I flew fighters for 11 years, ending in 1990, and riding the Trophy is as close to that experience as I have ever had.  I pull my helmet on, start the engine, and put a smile on my face.

Life is wonderful when you always have the heart of a little boy.  :047:

I think a signature line on here reads something like : "Mum when I grow up I want to be a biker, son you can only be a grown up or a biker, not both!"

Says it all really.

Later

Dave
Love, light, and kindness,

You can't be young forever but you can be immature!

I was off bikes for the first 25 years of my current marriage due to her family being in the cemetery/funeral home business and adamantly opposed to motorcycles.  Once my in-laws had passed away my wife relented and allowed me the pleasure of riding again.  Wow, like being in a fighter plane or on the old XLR8 ride at the amusement park known as Astroworld, only with a lot more varied routes and scenery.  In short, 25 on, 25 off, 5 back on and loving it, especially since bikes and tires are so much better than when I started riding.  Love the Trophy!
