1,000,000 miles of motorcycle riding.

This video is a bit of history of motorcycle riding.... in my town and my province in Canada.

I have had several extended conversations with him in the last 10 years since I purchased my bike and visited his dealership looking for accessories, parts and yes, a bike.

His office in the dealership is at the back of the showroom beside the tire display/storage rack and if you walk past his office and he is there he will always come out to talk to you.. My visits with him were later in the business day and some of them lasted past closing time.

He is a true gentleman - as you will see in the video - and at now 89 years young. He was till riding his Goldwing trike last fall when I was last in the dealership.

The original building is still on the farm outside of Olds - now used as a cabinet/woodworking
shop.

Great stories. Thanks for sharing.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
