    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.
