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 now have one each of the three primary colors of XS650 Yamahas. The '71 is Gold (yellow) the '72 is Red and the '73 is Blue. The '71 was the most work. It was in a house fire before I got it. I had rebuilt it minimally some years ago but decided to do it right. Now it is basically original or better. A lot of new chrome, new seat, overhauled the top end. Nice machine now. Here is a photo of the three. LN
