OH boy, get the Delorian out we are going to do some time traveling!!! LOL
Loved bikes as I grew up, but never had one (poor).
1963 turned 18 and local Harley dealer had an almost new 63 sportster for sale that was perfect.
About $900 and I had the money!!.. Apparently the story was, guy bought it in San Francisco and drove to San Bernardino, traded for larger ride. Had hot Cams and some carb work?? It was fast as heck!!
Well there ya go... Blast down the road and who knew Brake & Shifter were on wrong sides..... Reverse from everything else I had ridden.. Slid into first red light cus I couldnt get it stopped.... Almost died within view of dealer!!!
The beginning of a love/hate relationship that has lasted some 55 years.........
Almost continuously owned a personal bike..
10 years on Police Harley through the 70's.
First cop bike was a kicker ( 58 ).. lol
low man gets the oldest bike......
Been down 3 times, one time on COP bike in a Pursuit (only counts if I get hurt)...
Couple cracked ribs, couple broken bones (foot, hand) some major bruises, major road rash and back pain that turned into my Medical Retirement..
Still love that torque, power and feeling of freedom..............
