Philosophy and Motorcycles

Philosophy and motorcycles are two of my favorite things in life. This blog will be bits of wisdom gleaned from a misspent youth and an adventurous dotage. People who like/love wisdom or motorcycles, classic or modern versions of either, are welcome to visit and comment.

I have been married to the same lovely woman for decades. We have one son, two cats, and live in rural Wisconsin, USA. I ride and rebuild motorcycles, and I am semi-retired. Favorite bikes are Yamaha XS650, FJ1200 and Ducati 900SS. My wife is a home care nurse. I am a Myers-Briggs INTP. She is ESFJ. Our son works at the Apple store in downtown SF and is teaching English as a second language in San Francisco, no grandchildren.

I found another motorcycle to fill a gap in my garage. The empty space is a result of selling a 1981 Yamaha XS650 Special. I found a beautiful 1973 TX650 to take its place. I don't have a picture of it but do have a pic of another nice '73 TX. I find the old XS/TX series have a lot of curb appeal. They look good just sitting there. As a vintage motorcycle that can be used daily they are hard to beat. I had one with 104,000 miles on it. A lot of older machines aren't really usable. They are either too valuable, to bothersome, or too unreliable. An XS650 has all the vintage charm and is still a great ride. LN
