Ben and I started riding together in 1986. We picked up bikes in Melbourne AUST and crossed town during the 5PM rush hour on a day when it was about 38C. We were so rattled from the street cars, riding on the "wrong" side of the street, learning new machines, the huge unfamiliar city and intense heat, that setting off on our 10 week junket got post-ponned for a few days. Since then, we've put on many miles together. Frequently we've had to take separate trips due to work schedules, dog-sitting etc. I consider myself blessed anytime I roll out of the garage. Were it not for the mental and emotional relief that burning fossil fuels provides, I'd have spontaneously combusted years ago. We hope to meet, ride, eat and swap lies often - in fact, I look forward to it. Meantime, go safe and kill some bugs!
Howdy Everyone. Simona - thanks for your effort at connecting those who ride; it takes time and effort to do a web site and while we all appreciate it maybe we don't say "thanks" enough.
