Re: Motercycles /Scooters after FIRE

I'm working on FIRE.....ride a 1998 Harley-Davidson FLHTC Electra Glide Classic.....I'm in St. Petersburg, FL.....when I want to go for a nice ride I head north through Brooksville area or Trilby.....but I ride pretty much wherever.....I highly recommend taking the Motorcycle Safety Foundation Rider Course.....and wear a good helmet!

As for boating, I'm in Kentucky right now but next year I head back to Tulsa, Ok and will be boating on Soldier Creek at Lake Texhoma, hopefully in a 26' Sea Ray.

A previous poster noted he rode for 35 years without an accident then had one that was very serious. This reinforces my decision. Quit while I'm ahead.
Miatas........my fav. "cheap" car ever.

Lake Texoma is my home water when I'm in Texas. Keep the boat at Highport Marina in Pottsboro. (The lake is partly in Texas and partly in
Okla.).

Quitting while you are ahead is very useful, in biking and many other
venues as well.
