Never.

I always wore proper safety gear riding my Norton, cowboy boots, Lee jeans, t-shirt, Lee denim shirt, maybe light jacket or even Storm Rider when they were quality and it was cold. Brain bucket if the law made me.

It was funny, I rode my bike about thirty miles to work every morning in the predawn when my car broke down. Coldest part of winter and the gear mentioned above was the best I had, not counting the thin leather driving gloves I wore driving a truck. The national speed limit was fifty-five and I added another twenty to that. I passed a state trooper sitting in his car running a speed trap every morning, he ignored me. I guess he figured I really needed to get where I was going to be riding a bike in those conditions with that gear!

A little city cop biker used to come into my place to thaw out when I had a business in town. He couldn't talk when he first came in and we would just prop him in a corner by the heater until he thawed out enough to hold a coffee cup. He had been on the bike twenty years and planned to put in twenty more on it. Wouldn't consider giving up being a bike cop back when they rode Harleys.

Why not?

They mostly still do. Including the uniform division of the secret service.

I wouldn't consider it if they didn't.

Actually i wouldn't consider it anyway. I don't trust LEO.

Safe motorcycling is no accident.

The true danger mostly comes from other drivers, then itís lack of skill.....training on the motorcyclist part. The motorcycle itself is not dangerous.

Skill and training you can improve upon. You can learn to watch out for other drivers. You learn what the situations are that most drivers donít see you and you ride according.

But......riding a motorcycle is not for everyone either.

Harley is still number one as far as I know.

My neighbor is a Deputy Sheriff, rides a Harley.

The customized Road King I totaled was an FLHPI. A police bike.

LOL!

Because I had boots?

I have had three pair of motorcycle boots in my life. One pair was lost in a fire and I still have both other pairs.

One of those pairs was given to me.

Honey? How else would one store instruments?

What do you guys think about the old service Harley 3 wheelers? There has been one for sale recently in our neighborhood. I am guessing something like that is kinda like "riding a fat chick"? Fun so long as your buddies don't see you on it

They are cool.

Meter maid trikes. Not really made for the highway. The rear end isn't very strong so bigger motor swaps are limited.

Fun for parades, events, around town. I've seen some cool customs.

I think they are too. Be fun to cruise around the neighborhood on, maybe use to pick up groceries and do light errands.

If you are not concerned about originality, like collectible, you can find them fairly low priced.

I don't know if they will do 55mph. I know they won't do 70.

I don't about the various years and versions. I am sure there are web sites.

It is always good to pamper one's instrument.

My brother has all the gear but he did sell his bikes.


When I was a kid, my cousin stored an Indian
in our barn. I'll ask him whatever happened to it.

I remember when long long long front forks were in style. Most guys with them pushed their bikes into the parking spots backwards at the local bars. Those that didn't were funny as hell to watch when they came out drunk and spent twenty minutes pushing the bikes back and forth to get them turned around after things were crowded. All except this one guy. He had a 45 engine and tranny out of one of those three wheelers he had made a chopper out of. He would fire it up, put it in rewind and raise his feet! Best I remember those things only had three forward gears but it was a headturner to see a chopper with a reverse gear even before the Honda leadwings had the starter motor reverses on them.

The Indian was old and rusty. Mechanical
with flat tires.

Never saw the Indian shoot a single arrow.
