Wow! How things have changed? This is a picture of me on my first solo ride, I was 4 years old. It was 1974, and don’t you love the protective gear? A snoopy coat, a pair of jeans, and some waffle stomper boots. I have changed my riding gear quite a bit, and my hair is a lot shorter and grayer, but I still get that grin on my face when I am flying through the Idaho mountains on my CR 250. I work for my family’s motorcycle shop as a mechanic and motorcycles have always been a huge part of my life.
