My Motorcycling Background

My grandfather rode, my father rode, I ride, and my kids ride. I suppose four generations of bikers in the family means that motorcycling is in our blood. I have been riding bikes on and off since 1964 and so far, touch wood, the sport has had few negative impacts directly on me and my family (cross my fingers). There have been several close calls for which I thank the powers that be - for the chance to learn the limits without negative consequences. I have to admit the number of miles I put on the bike each year has decreased significantly of late. However, the feeling of riding is still incomparable and exhilarating and I am looking forward to riding more in the next few seasons.
