Are there any bikers here, am I alone?

As you know, I ride a modified Harley.

However, as a fish out of water I also rub elbows with some high-end chefs. You'd be amazed at how many Madsion sous-chefs now scrub their elbows, but I digress.

Any other deviant, long-haired, Harley-ridin' folks here, or am I the only one...

Not a Harley, not yet, at least. I have two chances on a raffle for one. I rode for the better part of 20 years. I gave it and my bike up. because my hips were bad and I could not do what needed to be done. Over the years, I had 5 bikes. No Harley. I could not then, nor can I now afford one. I have two new hips and feel great, hence the chances on the Harley. We do have some dirt riders and some ATV riders here.

Wish me luck on the Harley. Only 600 tickets to be sold.

Nice photos!

I'm a biker too, but not of the motorized variety.

This is the only recent, on-the-bike photo I have...

Me or the bicyclist?

If it's me, I've ridden Dyna Glides (calle Super Glides "in the day") and a few Sportsters all my life. They referred to dressers as "garbage wagons."

I ride for fun now. It helps me decompress from the mad world of sleeping late and working about three hours per day...

I don't consider myself a "biker", not in the true sense of the word as in living the lifestyle. My wallet does not have a chain on it and I wear shorts in the summer (never on the bike though ). I got another Harley last year after several years without. So I just ride now to get the rush when I need to and slow down and enjoy the scenery when I need to do that. I'll try to remember to take the camera with me next time I go riding and get a pick of me on the bike
