This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

Yeah, but the goal isn't end up looking all purdy without any dents and dings, it's to look like you really lived.

Sometimes it does suck to feel that way too though...

I feel that I am aging my body quicker than it shows, but I can still play with the kids and have the energy to keep acting a fool on 2 wheels. There are days I wake up and ask myself "Why does all the fun stuff end up hurting?"

I take it as a sign that I wake up feeling worse than when I went to bed ....You know, that "ewh!, oh!, ouch!, okay Mike move slowly to the edge and let your feet slide off.....the floor is down there somewhere" feeling .....

Thank you as well. Peacetime service is still service. I was an 88M for deployments supporting CIED operations...then I wised up and reclassed to 15T. Such a large family is the only reason it has taken me this long to buy a new motorcycle. I have never owned a NEW bike ever until now
