She was my first, and I shall never forget her. Small...but formidable, cute, beautiful even... but serious.... she took my breath away! We haunted the Seattle street scene in the late sixties, and took several multi-day trips together, and she never failed me, never.... I am ashamed today because there were times I unaccountably felt inferior with her when around others with their more glamorous companions, and I wish I could make that right, but.... some things you just can't change. She was taken from me one night by some b*stard Seattlelite, a man without honor, a man whose name I never got.... Oh, to be with her today! What I wouldn't give.....

Yes, I had her once, and if my head had been straight, and my face out of a beer bottle, we could've ridden around the world together. My head's straight now, I'm clean and sober, and with my lovely new partner, we're doing the world one chunk at a time, two-up.... All's well that ends well, but that 1966 160 Honda CL -- my first -- she could've done it, yes, she could've done it....

Do you have a dream, youngster? Do it, do it now....find a way, and go.... We are never guaranteed tomorrow. Act, act now.... I am blessed and fortunate beyond belief; a absolute miracle blew into my life, her red hair flaming, and I got a second chance at the dream! Not all of us do....

I know, friend, I know...but it wasn't a post about a bike really, it was a post about almost wasting your life, and second chances! The heaven-sent, blessed, second chances!

Great word of wisdom and encouragement. Sometimes we do get lucky and get not just one, but two chances at a great love. We just need to keep our eyes and our hearts open.

And a bonehead stole it.

I do not think real highly of those who willingly victimize others. Of course 22 years in a legal type profession can do that to a person.

Nice words CJ that paint a picture.

I had a similar run in with her big sister, a 67' 305cc scrambler, still miss her.

Mine had snuff-or-nots ----> great sound.
