    Love it !

    This embodies the notion of riding for fun better than most.

    Great story @Lake City Larry.

    You, your wife - and the bike - are all true legends.

    Quick edit:
    I just did a quick calculation and by my reckoning, Larry and his trusty steed have done nearly 50 laps of Australia (our Highway 1). That is simply amazing . . .

    Thanks John ! I thought it would be fun to show everyone a couple of articles from years ago ( 1993 & 2003 ) that appeared in Yamaha and Suzuki magazines that were sent only to the dealers and not the general public. Back then there was internet, but not used extensively like today ! I did screenshots of the front page and of the articles but they are somewhat blurred due to the high gloss pages. The articles are similar to what I am today, I just love riding a motorcycle ! AFF2D379-9233-4AED-8161-53917C7AAF4E.jpeg

    My goodness @Lake City Larry you have spent more time on 2 wheels than a vast majority of people do on 4 wheels.
    I think you're getting the hang of it by now...Lol

    The last sentence in the above article says it all about riding for the fun of riding ! When I first started riding it was always about where am I going to,,,,,,,,,,,,,,as the years went by destinations just didn’t hold much importance anymore,,,,,,,,and that’s when the miles started increasing because the joy of riding was more fun than reaching a destination ! Long trips through bad weather on unfamiliar roads in heavy traffic almost made me quit riding when I was young,,,,,,,,,until I found the core of my enjoyment was riding to NOWHERE !! Larry

    My wife ask me all the time..... where we going? I just shrug my shoulder's 75% of the time. Basically decide.....north, south, east or west when we're riding locally.

    I guess it’s time,thanks for asking Iroquois ! I took this pic just tonight by special request ! The miles are starting out slow this year due to the cold and wet weather,,,,,,,,,,and getting older doesn’t help either. Is there any rattling or knocking going on ? Yes, but it just won’t quit ! So I’m not going to either ! C1AEA54E-3734-4C02-8CEF-4A62BFDD06EC.jpeg

    There you go with that 3 letter swear word again Larry!,......If you were at our place you'd get a clip around the ears for that. Steph does not stand for that swear word!:cool::p:D:rolleyes:;),......

    If I sit around and even just say, 'I'm tired',......I get told that is because you're not moving,....go for a walk, a run, a ride,.....GO DO SOMETHING!!!!,......you know?,.......She's right,.....

    Our weather was the same @Lake City Larry . Farmers are 5-6 weeks behind getting things planted.
    Hands of time is catching up to all of us. I hope you and the Chieftain can get more road time in soon.
    Thx for the update.... amazing amount of miles!

    With time I've found your statement to be completely and absolutely true. Your energy gauge is not in empty when you've done a lot of stuff, it's empty when you've been sitting around doing nothing!

    It's amazing how many miles you're piling up. At this rate, your odometer will eventually run out of digits!
