Blast From The Past

Heart attach ended my riding. I loved this bike, Harley Davidson CVO Ultra Classic.

Me on million dollar highway to nowhere, Cherahola Skyway North Carolina, 2010. Wife following on her 2003 Road King Classic.

Those pictures are great! Nice bikes. I have always admired Harley's dressed or chopped. I guess I have just not been brave enough to own one. To many accidents where the other guy claims I just did see him or her. To many freeways and to much traffic in general here in sunny So.Cal.

Miss mine too. Hey, we had an old timer in the club we called Cowboy Mike. Road into his 90's. Usually with his dog on the back in a milk crate on his dresser. Later, he needed an oxygen tank to breath. Made a harness and wore it over his shoulder and road. He just passed away a few months ago. Was a great guy!

Nothing should keep you from riding. In my case, was money. But I will ride again!

Great pictures and beautiful looking bikes, I'm surprised you let a heart attack stop your riding. Did you give up driving entirely?

If it was just me, I would be riding...doctor says I can drive a car so I would ride a bike if I wanted to.

Sweet pea said she will never ride again and for me it was all about us riding and being together so if she ain't going I'm not going alone. I know some guys ride to be away from there wives but that's not me.
I rode her Road King a few times after we recovered before I sold it.
Just to prove I won.

Those were some good times I'll bet. Wife and I have been all over the country on motorcycles mostly her as my passenger. She rode her own 1000 sportster; started when she was 40 and rode for a couple of years. Now we're in our 60s and she's not thrilled anymore on riding on the back so I had to buy her a roadster. I ride shotgun with her. Actually there are many days that I'm glad I we're in her car because of the top we can put up the heater we can turn on or the air-conditioner and we have a Bose stereo system. Still have my 95 heritage Softail classic but I mostly just run around town on it.

Just saying, you and sweet pea can still get on the open road to nowhere with the wind blowing through your hair in a little roadster like we did. Advantages: no bugs in your teeth and you've got climate control. Oh and you can understand each other when you're talking.

I rode bikes since I was 10 years old. Gave it up 10 years ago, I'm 58. Had spinal cord surgery, it didn't go as planned. So my legs are weak and had trouble holding up the bike. When I'd get home I would say I made it. It was not enjoyable anymore. But boy I miss, oh the times I had.
