What's in my Garage? 2007 Soft-Tail, 2000 Valkyrie, 2010 Kawasaki Voyager 1700 with Champion sidecar, 2002 V-Star 1100 (working it into a bobber), 2004 V-Star 650

I've been gone for a while.

I'm 72 and love to ride BUT it had to take a backseat to other more immediate issues for several years. Long enough that I had even forgotten that I belonged to this site!

Back in 2012, my first wife found out that her cancer had metastasized and of course all of my attention was focused on her treatments. She passed on July 3, 2017. Not a great 4th of July that year. We were married for 48 years so the adjustment to being single again wasn't easy. I was convinced that I would remain single so I got a bike with a sidecar that would allow me to take my best buddy, Blue, along on trips. He loves it by the way. :) I had been a teacher for 32 years before I retired due to a heart condition and a couple of my former students knew me well enough to be concerned that I would isolate myself (good insight on their part). I really enjoyed interacting with one of them and over time it became a much more serious relationship. We were married on July 28, 2018, and I've never been happier in my life. She doesn't ride but knowing how much I love it she supports my going out for a ride whenever I feel the need. She is incredible. Now you know why I haven't been around. Expect to see and hear more from me when things warm up again.
