I got my first bike when I was 15. An older friend had his up for sale so he could start college. The bug bit me pretty hard and I knew I just had to have it so I asked my dad if I could get a bike. He said yes, but there was a slight hitch, I had to get a job. I got one real quick and bought the bike. My dad got it registered and licensed and I rode it the first year without a driver's license. Since that year, I've always owned a bike and been a licensed rider. I pretty much hope I get to kick the bucket on board, not after I've lost the ability to enjoy life. This will be my 52nd year on the road. How many years does everyone else have?
