Red face Rider since 1957

I got my motorcycle license in 1957 in Ohio. Bought a new Husqvarna 50cc with money I saved working on the farm. Rode it all over NW Ohio and SE Michigan. Still riding today, on my 83 Shadow VT750C, only now in Alabama. Have owned a new 1975 Honda CB750F, new cost $1,500, sold it in 1996 for $2,100!
Also owned 82 Suzuki GL750, 83 Sabre 750, and 83 Yamaha XJ750RJ. Loved them all.
