I have a 2010 Honda Stateline I bought last year. My wife says I bought it on false pretenses. Looking back that is partially true. She did say I could have a motorcycle! But it was supposed to be a scooter. The salesman at the scooter shop laughed out load when I inquired about me buying a scooter. I guess he may have thought that my poster boy for weight watchers size played a factor on a scooter actually hauling me around. Another words I’m huge in comparison to a VESPA scooter. In the end I bought the Honda Stateline for half what the scooter would have cost. So I ended up with a 1300CC bike that hauls my fat butt around pretty dang good. I love the feeling when riding it. Open space, no seat belt constraints, and wind blowing in my face. All good things for a guy with “ism’s”.
Last week I was invited to ride with a group of contractors from a new store opening to Zions National Park, Kanab and a few other places. It was like Christmas for me. The night before I could not sleep. Like a kid I had my leathers out, helmet ready and all the ancillary items ready and packed. It was a BLAST! It has been a very long time since I felt so munch relieve from my stress and anxieties. The group of riders were great. The camaraderie and conversations was what I expected from these great men. We made several stops along the way not traveling much for than 30+ miles at a time.
I hope I can do a ride like this another time with such great company.
