My first bike was a Suzuki TS 125 I did have a helmet, but ATTGATT in those days was usually levis and a pull-over.
This picture was taken circa 1984 and was just after I rode through a canal; my young son (now 29) is looking on while I try to get it started again. Pulling my kids and nieces and nephews around in the snow.

I took the next decade off from riding, and then got this bike, a 1984 GL 1200 Interstate. Also in this pic is my third bike, a GL 1200 Aspencade. I had the black one for only about a month before getting the Aspencade, and put about 1,000 miles on it. I rode the Aspencade just over 20,000 miles, in the year that I had that one.
This is my forth bike and third wing, a 1994 GL 1500 SE. What a beaut! I got the SE in 2002..I think, and had it for 3 years putting 61,000 miles on it.
The wing is a great bike to tour on, long days are comfy, cold days are...well, cold, but easier to do on a wing than other bikes. Someday I suppose I"ll own another wing.
Somewhere in South Dakota, I had started out in Boston two up, my wife flew home from Niagra Falls, (as per our plans, someone has to work!).
The wing with Beverly's Silverwing scooter. Near Emigration Canyon, Utah.
My daughter took me to lunch for my birthday...
A family trip. Two sons on their Honda Shadow 1100s, Beverly on her Silverwing, Me on the Wing, and a family friend on the Beemer. The Tetons (Wy) in the background. We are headed for Yellowstone NP, then Beartooth Pass.
Beverly, and elk herd across the road in Yellowstone.
Another family trip on the way to Oregon - the "Shoe Tree" on highway 50 in Nevada.
Our destination, Depoe Bay, Oregon.
Three sons, the two shadows and the third is riding the Silverwing.
With a few farkles the Strom is a great touring bike. Two of my sons and I rode over to the Barber Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, Alabama.
