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.
