Things ain't what they use to be .Fourty Fiveyears ago I was riding a Honda 90 that
would overheat if it ran at high speed to long so I'd stop and let it cool off.
Gas was 40 cents a gallon and riding for 2 or 3 hours was an adventure,we had the
world by the tail.
Today as I climb onto to my 850 pound liquid cooledMC with air ride,cruise control,
satellite radio,digital camcorder,Helmet sound,Bike to Bike Communications,GPS navigation
and on and on I wonder what another few generations will bring in Motorcycles, and I ponder
sometimes whether I enjoy this any more than that old Honda 90,hair straight back, and a big goofy grin.
I guess its all about the freedom of riding that we have such a passion about,but I must admit I would'nt
trade my nice soft sheepskin covered Wing seat for that old Honda 90 bench seat that madea 2 hour ride
seem like a testof indurance.
In two weeks I head out on a 10 day tourcovering several thousand miles.
Am I happy I can do this in comfort...you bet.
But some days I think about how simple life
was back then. Guess I'm just an "Old Timer" in a modern world with a passion for
Motorcycles thats lasted a life time. And thats the truth...." So lets ride!!!"
and don't forget towave when you're out there,we're all in this together.
