It's more than just a way to get around...
Although cars and motorcycles are a lot less important now
than when I was in my twenties, there is still a great feeling to be
had driving down a winding road in a sports car with the top down. I
have always had a sports car, even when we also had family cars over
the years. My "guy" cars were: a 1976 Triumph TR6, a 1985 Alfa Romeo
Spider and my current 1994 Corvette.
I drove a motorcycle in my junior and senior years
of college and in the early eighties in California. I met my wife,
Mary Lou in a motorcycle parking lot. She drove a motorcycle at the
time as well, which made her an excellent passenger when we rode
together. The first picture below shows me and my Honda CB900 in
1980, wearing that cocky 25 year old smirk I used to have.
The second picture below shows my two California bikes, the CB900
and my red Honda 400. The third picture below shows my first
motorcycle from my college days, a Honda CL175. The fourth picture
below shows Mary Lou's bike,
a Yamaha 360.
