Ending my ride on a high note!
I celebrated my 70th birthday last week, one month after returning from a 4400 mile, 15 day trip. We rode from Northern KY to the Rocky Mountains to Yellowstone to Sturgis. We stopped at all the sites to see like Bear Tooth Pass, Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Iron Mountain, Chief Joseph Highway, Needles Highway. So many places and nice people along the trip. We try and eat at mom and pops and weren't disappointed, I gained 5 pounds! Today I started removing some things from my 2017 Road Glide Ultra. I then dropped it at a friend s house who details bikes. When I get it back I will be selling my Shark. While I am as good a rider as ever on the express or backroads its getting more and more difficult to maneuver the bike when stopping or parking. The bike weighs a 1000 pounds without my fat ass on it! Unfortunately I no longer have 1000 pound legs to maneuver with. I have no regrets or ill feelings only 50 years of great memories spread across 8 Harleys which never left me stranded. I already have an almost new Goldwing Trike for when the wife wants to ride which I'll be switching to on a full time basis. I guess you could say I'm converting from a biker to a triker and I'm good with that. I'll close with a photo when we entered Utah which is a great biker state.
