Hi All..!  It is that time of year again.. well getting close..  Vacation time.. That is, unless my Dr visit next week turns bad.. not likely...  So, I will be off to the Isle of Man.. my racer is on a ship headed that way...

But, thought I would share a picture of my new rider at the TT Races from early June, 2014.  Do ya think we have something in common, besides the bikes..??

Be Well All..!!

    How fun!

    Enjoy yourself! I just took a basic rider course this past weekend. Thinking about getting a bike. Any suggestions on a starter bike? I prefer cruiser styles.

    Advice appreciated.

    (For the first time I feel a little dirty for talking off topic of kidney cancer! Lol)

    Todd, as a starter bike.. I suggest a used small(ish) bike.  Learn what you need to learn then move up.  By getting a used bike, you save all the resale lost on a new bike.  There are some smaller cruiser bikes out there, pick one that fits you.

    Wish I could take a few of you with me...  The weekend of racing is their Relay for Life, and I have already made arrangements to attend for part of the weekend.  FYI, my last year's rider's wife's family is full of Cancer... My rider this year has had Cancer in his life (hence his funding of research).   So, we have a common bond, so to speak..  Perhaps I can come up with a good T Shirt to depict the "Racing for a Cure" on motorcycles theme...  Hmmm.. gives me ideas..

    Be Well All..!!

    Have more fun

    than should be legal, Ron. You are due for an awesome break. Even us riders can only imagine how cool the races are in person. Let alone having a bike in one of them. I'll be paying attention to the internet updates for sure.

    It does sound like fun! We

    It does sound like fun! We have a motorcycle, but haven't had it out yet this year, thanks to many different events happening in our lives right now. But I miss it!! Have fun Ron!

    And Todd - sounds like a great way for you to enjoy something new. Check for local riding clubs in your area. It is a great way to go on different routes and meet new people!

    Hugs,
