Amen to that.

Motorcycles, bicycles, scooters... I love 'em all. Every one of them makes you feel like you're flying.

I feel sad for people who spend all their adult lives on two feet or four wheels.

"moving through the air on a single-track machine"

That's a nice turn of phrase. You should go pro.

Its.......A FACT!

Mapquest says Moab is about 10.5 hours from LA. It is just under 6 hours from me. My similarly aged LA based dirt bike riding buddies plan to meet me there. Pushing (and recently exceeding) 50 has taught us one thing - have fun while you can

One thing the HD guys do well is the social aspect of bike riding. Dirt riding is a bit condusive to that too. Riding and getting a bit lost (thank goodness for GPS) in a new and beautiful place with some good friends on dirt bikes is such a fun adventure. That is priceless when you are an old dude like me!

I will of course take lots of pictures and find a flimsy excuse to post them on here from time to time.

Nah, to turn pro, I'd have to say "wafting through the air..."

I'll make it to Moab one day!

And as a Pro, he's have to get in 'spoon on some sticky buns' and maybe 'snick' the bike into gear...

Only after he thumbed the starter, and while he listened to the burble of spent gasses exhaling through twin exhausts.

Because they hope to get it.... and they might, but not from me. MSRP may be for the US, but supply v/s demand in Australia may not be in your favor.
