    Oct'17 MOTM - challenger




    Please congratulate
    Dan
    for being the

    October 2017 Member Of The Month.


    From Dan:


    I bought BeaST, my '05 ST, from Ronald L. Winn on September 1, 2011 and it has been one of the most reliable motorcycles I have ever owned! With it and through it I have discovered parts of the South previously unknown to me and made new friends wherever we have roamed … usually at a higher than normal rate of speed!

    My then 82 CB900C was just not up to the job and a friend in England was telling me about his ST1100. I listened, asked questions, looked around, found an upgraded model ST1300, about fifty miles from home, at MY PRICE, and with the Family I drove one day to take a look. IT WAS SPECTACULAR! I produced the cash, Ron Winn produced the title and I rode her home. The rest is 30,000+ miles of riding enjoyment, excitement, pleasure, and history.

    It introduced me to the STOC Events, which are very similar to the RALLYS that I routinely frequented in Germany in the 1970s and brought back an oh so familiar lifestyle. Sadly health issues keep me somewhat tethered but I do get to make the occasional long distance (for me) run. Once I got the bug I began looking around for suitable routes for what would eventually become DIXIE-STOC. I found several and by varying the routes can keep the interest up in visiting South Alabama.

    My riding days will end sometime buy until then I want to spend them on my ST1300. People often ask me, “How fast is it?” I usually reply 130++. But I add, “It’s NOT how fast the BeaST is … it’s how QUICK? I never think in my mind ‘If I will pass the next vehicle” … it’s always ‘When I will pass the next vehicle!’”

    Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of this group. I am humbled! Rubber side DOWN ...
