    I started riding in 1969 on Bonanza minibike. Moved to 1970 Honda Ct70 and Honda Super90. I turned 16 in 1971 and got a 1971 Yamaha AT1, AT1-MX, Bultaco 250 Matador, RT1 all in 1971. 1972 I traded the RT1 for an Yamaha R5 and traded it for a CT2. The CT2 was my first good enduro bike and it was painted similar to the Husqvarna's like my friends rode. I was introduced to a huge Husky camp where I lived in Evansville Indiana. These guys were up and coming great riders and already great riders and just as important, builders. 1973 saw the CT2 traded for a slightly used Husqvarna 450WR. This was my best bike while learning to build a great enduro bike. Indiana was rough, muddy with very tight woods riding and this bike could be ridden through anything if needed. I moved to Ventura Ca after graduate school and bought a Husqvarna 390OR from my friends in Evansville. This was a good desert bike there. After moving to Stillwater OK, I bought the Husqvarna 250WR DBR. Another great enduro and trail bike. Eventually I moved back to Evansville and acquired the Yamaha RZ350 and the VFR700F2 around 1989 and 1994 respectively. This was a great bike building and street riding era for me. The little RZ was a giant killer. Then the VFR can along and the RZ was parked to save for later. I moved back out west and ended up in Idaho Falls Idaho. I acquired the 1998 YZ250 here. This is where the VFR really shined going over mountain passes like Teton Pass near Jackson WY and great western roads. Eventually I moved to Rock Springs Wy on 2001. The street bikes were parked due to very close calls with dangerous drivers. And I got interested in Corvettes. The big booming roads have to be experienced to be believed. The drive from Rock Springs to Vernal UT and south is out of this world for real drivers. In 2010 I got the VFR running again. It the got parked until 2016 when I restored her to full riding condition. 2/17 I did a CBR and VTR modern conversion. The CRF250X Honda was acquired here. It is also a off road mecca. I am in the process of getting the RZ going again. There are so many great roads to enjoy here under constant blue skies.
