I Love Motorcycles

Motorcycles All

I'm a motorcycle nut. I only have three now. I started riding when I was 18, way back in 1969.

Hodaka Ace 90

Trail/enduro. My first motorcycle was a Hodaka Ace 90, I bought it with the earnings of my work in the summer of 1969. It was a "dirt bike" altho it nominally was street legal.

RD350
 

My friend Lloyd introduced me to street bikes, my early bikes were mostly dirt bikes. Once I rode Lloyd's Yamaha R5, I was hooked. I had to have my own Yamaha 350, so I bought a Yamaha RD350.

In a few years, I got into road racing, and did that up through the 1987 season.

New KTM300
I got out of motorcycles, did not ride one again for about 30 years. Then I slowly got back into it. Last Summer, I bought a new enduro bike, a KTM 300 XC-W.

Observed Trials

Trials (or more properly "Observed Trials") is a motorcycle sport that is unlike anything I've done before. Its about balance and timing, not about speed. I recently bought a used trials bike, so I can improve my balance and bike control.
Beta trials

I attended Ryan Young's trials school in Shepherdstown WV at the end of September 2017. He is a great guy, check out his Ryan Young Products website.
