    Default Time has come..

    As much as I hate it, the time has come to retire from motorcycling. After 55 years and well over 1,150,000 miles. I've owned 25 motorcycles, the last two a BMW trike K1200LT, and my beloved 2014 RT-S Spyder. My Spyder... never ridden a better three wheeled Motorcycle. I wanted so to get 200K on it, but was only able to amass 188,503. Only 30K the last three years, 35K the last three years.
    I want to thank all the generous people who have helped me the last 7 years.
    Lamonster. Thanks for the website.
    Blue Knight Mike I only knew a few days in Spyderfest 2018, great guy, knows what he's talking about.
    Buckeye Bleau. Joe got me into this madness, a truly great man.
    My Muscular Dystrophy makes it unable to walk without assistance, my new buyer, brother Ken 6 years my senior runs marathons. He's running the Chicago marathon in October. I think you all will be seeing his progress in continuing my goal of 200,000 miles.
    It's been a great ride.

    And sometimes we think we have problems. Adios Buckeye and I hope things get better for you.

    Chuck, happy trails in your next chapter. At 88 I know my time is not far out and I fight it every time I ride and find the fun zone.

    Bucheye, I commend you for recognizing it's time to let all those miles become part of the history and memories of your life and not deny nor push it to the point you would have suffered a disaster. Good luck and God Bless.
