Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming...Woo Hoo What A Ride!

After I sold my DT2, a couple of years went by and I got the urge to get another bike. I loved Brit bikes, but was not too impressed with their reliability. I liked the Yamaha 650 Special, because it looked like a typical Brit bike, and sounded like one. I purchased this 650 Special, new from Cycle World on Dundas for $2499. It was a good bike and it served me well. Sold a few years later to a friend.
Since I was very young, I have had a passion for sports cars, motorcycles and boats. The very first car I got was a 1964 Triumph TR4.
I think I paid $800.00 for it, which I borrowed from my parents. I loved that car, and it made me feel I was somebody. It kept me poor, but I loved it just the same. When I had it, I was in high school, and driving it during lunch, made me feel like I was so cool. LOL! Good times!
In my last year of high school, I had a very bad motorcycle accident. I was on my way home from work and a woman ran a stop sign. She T-boned me, and I went sailing down the road. I landed on my head, I was wearing a helmet, but I sustained serious head injuries, concussion, coma, and brain damage. (explains a lot, LOL) My left hand was injured and my left knee also. After the court case wound down, I bought a motorcycle. It was a '72 Yamaha DT2 dirt bike. I learned a lot about bike riding with this bike, and kept it for several years.
