Knuckleheads! All of 'em! The kind that when somebody's gotta go, there is a sleeve or sock missing for the rest of the ride. But also the best group you would want to hang with...

i have several friends i ride with .. we look like a motley bunch going down the road..

in the fray are

my v-rod (sometimes the 'Busa)
an R-1
a Victory 8 ball
a 'Busa
a sportster
a night train
a honda shadow
a ducati monster
and a big dog mastiff


these are the times when i dont run to nashville to ride with my v-rod group..

most of the time i ride alone and pick up stragglers along the way .. since i am from the area and many of the military boys arent.. they like riding and watching scenery with some one that knows where the good stuff is

Most of the time I ride alone and end up with a few strangers. There is one buddy who I do try and plan a few trips with, he is a welder like me and rides a Low Rider. This summer, if all goes well, my wife will be on a new Sportster.

Since I have moved around so much, I like to ride with someone familiar with all the back roads. Usually that is someone who likes to ride as much as me. It doesn't matter what kind of bike they have, as long as they don't mind riding with a HARLEY RIDER, Ha. I always love to ride new roads. It's funny how everyone likes to ride with someone on a Harley. We have "panache". :mwink
