I am a new member as of 8/31/06 (#1273490). I currently reside near El Centro, California, where I was born and raised. I'm fifty-nine years old; married to Candy for twelve years; two grown step-children. I am retired from the Border Patrol (4 yrs.), for whom I was a patrol agent and a pilot for 24 years.
I've been riding motorcycles for 44 years. My first bike was a 1956 TR-6 Triumph Trophy. I have always been partial toward the older Brit bikes, having owned one other Triumph and two BSAs over the years.
I acquired my first beemer in 1982; a 1980 R-65 with 20 thousand miles on the odo. It's now got 120 thousand on it. It just refuses to die.
I currently own: 1970 TR-6C Triumph Trophy (my second bike ever); 1980 R-65 BMW; 1997 R1100R BMW; and my latest acquisition, a 2003 R1150GS.
My interests include wrenching on just about anything; eg: old cars, bikes, airplanes, helicopters, fishing reels.
My goals for the remainder of my riding career include riding/touring every part of the Western United States, and , especially to ride all the way to Prudhoe Bay, AK. I LOVE MOTORCYCLES.
