Optional Information.




When, how and where did you start riding?


I bought an Arial right after getting out of the service. Although she was almost born on her parents motorcycle, Shirley has had very little experience. Once we were married, I informed her that I needed some sort of cheap transportation since we now lived so far from town.

A Gold Wing seemed like the most logical of choices. (-:
