    Nov '17 MOTM - Ride52




    Please congratulate
    Danny
    for being the

    November 2017 Member Of The Month.


    From Danny:


    Motorcycles have been an important part of my life since I was 8 yrs old (1966) when my dad bought me a Sears and Roebuck 3.5 HP minibike. To me it was a huge machine and I was a bit intimidated by it for about an hour or so. I promptly rode the wheels off of it and wore out countless sets of clutch and brake pads. From then it was one type of bike or another until about 1998 when my 1991 Suzuki VX 800 needed a few repairs that I put on the back burner....for a long time. It was a long dry spell with no bike, until the kids and grand kids were well on their way, when a co-worker bought an ST1300. I was overcome by the riding bug instantly and had to have one of these beauties. I personally have never ridden anything so smooth and deceptively fast. The term " Canyon Carver" comes to mind. I've had my 2007 only 2 months and I plan to enjoy it at every opportunity. I am attempting to schedule work around at least one of the STOC events in 2018 and would love to meet a few of you fine folks. I appreciate this honor and I am humbled to receive the MOTM for November. Looking forward to riding with you someday.

    Regards,

    Danny

    Thanks guys! Definitely going to make time for one of the meets in 2018. Haven't been getting out much the past 20 or so years and I'm trying to change that. I am enjoying and benefiting greatly from this forum all because of kind and helpful members like yourselves. Hope to see you down the road.
    Regards,

    Danny

    Well done and welcome to the club, Danny! Enjoy the ride...and go to as many STOC events as you can. We are family!
    Oh, and don't forget to get another MOTM to teach you the secret handshake!
