After taking her motorcycle for a little test run (130+ km) last weekend I came to the realization that I simply could not let her be the only one in our home having that much fun. So ..... this 1400cc Suzuki Intruder joined our family today!

Congrats on the new rides.. Remember 1/2 the cars want to run you over. 1/4 don't care. 1/8 are on the phone and not paying attention. and the rest are just plain stupid,ignorant,morons and you will be fine. This is how I have to ride nowadays. Been riding on the street since 1984 and the people only get worse. Since cell phones came out it got a lot scarier.

Thanks for all your comments guys. I realized as I was riding the other day that it has been almost 30 years since I had a motorcycle on the street ... but was happy to discover I hadn't forgotten how to ride one .

I got my first street bike back in 1970 and rode steadily on the street until about 1992 and drag raced bikes until 1995. Only had one bad accident in 1977 (dumb blonde in a big Chevy got 2 bikes in one blow) that shattered my knee and almost cost me my left leg but a very good doctor managed to save everything except the knee cap.

My wife and I are looking forward to some nice rides next summer.
