2008 Honda Goldwing GL1800P 

She rides even better than she looks......

Riding has been a part of life as far as I can remember. As a very little kid my Dad had a Honda Scrambler and my older brother had a Honda 50. I started late, I was 13 (in 1974) when I started riding friends bikes. I bought my first bike (a 1972 Honda 100) in 1975. Here's the ones I remember, starting with that first one:

Honda 100

Yamaha 250

Bultaco 250

Suzuki 500

Yamaha Virago 750

Yamaha XS850 Special

Yamaha XS1100 Special

Kawasaki 750 LTD

Honda Goldwing GL1000

I took a 10 year break from 1995 to 2005 without a bike. In December of 2005 the call of the road was just too strong, I had to get another one.

Yamaha XS1100

Kawasaki Nomad 1500

Kawasaki VN2000 Classic LT

and now - Honda Goldwing GL1800P

My Dad joined the San Jacinto High Rollers Pasadena, Texas Chapter in the mid '70's. A few years later, he was one of the founding members of the Rainbow Riders M/C in La Porte, Texas, which was a "family oriented" club.

I rode for many years without being a member of any Riding group or Association. In 2006 I heard about the Patriot Guard Riders and the service they provide to veterans families. It sounded like the best reason to ride with a large group. Since then I have ridden with several Riding Associations, VROC (Vulcan Riders and Owners Club), VRA (Vulcan Riders Association), SCRC (Southern Cruisers Riding Club), and now with the TLRRA (Two Lane Road Riders Association).
