In less than 8 weeks I will be 80 years old. In addition to several Hondas and another Suzuki, I just bought a 2005 Boulevard c50t. I've been riding since I was 18 and will stop only when I have to, which I expect will be several years from now.

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

Please don't feed the monkey.

I bet you could probably use a buddy. Any interest in a cute little Jack Russel puppy? I know a guy in AZ who's got some.

Music, Motorcycles, and Family... Nothing else really matters in life!

Thanks for the welcome. So far as a dog goes my French Bulldog Peter wouldn't like a new dog in the house. Peter is 14. When he was younger he fought a coyote and won. One of his ears was nearly chewed off in a fight with another dog. My wife sprayed water in his unconscious mouth while I hung him upside down when he had a seizure after he grabbed a cane toad (usually fatal for small dog)s. Six months ago he attacked a large rattlesnake and was bitten 3 times in the face. The vet recommended not treating him since he was so old. He recently had a stroke and now staggers and the right side of his face droops. Peter is stone deaf and has cataracts. Other than that he is perfect, at least for my wife and me.

PS: Whiskey and guitarjim, who appear to appreciate music. I own several fiddles and many guitars, including a 1955 Gibson Les Paul with a Gibson tube type amplifier I inherited from my dad, who was a fantastic musician.

Yup, sounds like you need a new Dog.
Welcome aboard.
We got lots of things that bite, sting, and try to kill you out here in the AZ desert.
Last year one of my fur kids got a hold of a Sonoran toad and spent a few hours hallucinating.
I too have an interesting collection of guitars, though I can't seem to muster the passion to play anymore.

You should have called, I could have put you into an 09 Bully with all kinds of bells and whistles.

Welcome.

Greetings from Indiana.

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

Nice guitar in the collection. Does the Les Paul have all of the original parts on it? I like tube amplifiers. It took a long time but digital has finally caught up and some incredible amp modeling is available. Do you store the instruments or play them?
