Your Bio

Howdy All,

I am a motorcycle enthusiast, I hate the term biker. I have been riding since 1963, have owned or ridden just about anything that's been made that has two wheels and an engine.

I now have in my stable everything from a Harley Twin cam Road King Classic, to a a couple of Yamaha TW-200's, a hacked BMW R1150GS, a Yamaha YZF-R1, an old 1968 BSA Thunderbolt, 1971 Rokon MK3, and my favorite bike the Ural, I have a stock Gear-Up and a highly modified for off road use Ural that has been turned into the "Predator". So it's plain to see that I enjoy the full spectrum of motorcycling

I will use these galleries to store and to share my photos of my two wheeled-three wheeled adventures. I am not much with computers and I am still in the learning curve when it comes to cameras, so as you view what's here, if you have any suggestions that you feel may help me to take better photos please send them my way. Thank you.
