    ,,, Larocco's Leap!!!!! I LOVED racing Red Bud and LOVED doin Larocco's Leap = the flight time off that puppy was INCREDIBLE = almost as long as jumpin off the Dune tops at Silver Lake!!!! Gotta admit though,, I have ridden a few two tracks and snake trails on my 1st Gens thru the years but never had the konies to even imagine shootin off Larocco's Leap with one of em,,, ya got a lot of class Dano and more nerve than I would ever have!!

    Early 70's 80cc (not my Pic) I was 9 or 10. Spend hours riding this and as far anyone knows it was only in the fields - yeah right.

    Spent the summer of '84 on a Venture but it wasn't mine. A Friend was deployed and told me to have fun for the summer and man did I. He was a little ticked at first when he saw the mileage.

    1981 Yamaha 400 Special II (again not my Pic) put 45 - 50K on this bike in 3 years al over OH, WV, PA, IN and IL

    Most of these only have old photographs of

    a 'few' RD's 250/350/400 Ummm I was an apprentice Toolmaker and errr 250cc restriction as a learner, but restamped 350 top end as 247cc, then renumbered the crankcase, did the 247cc on the barrels and machined off the bottom fin on a 400 (some cops knew how many fins a 250/400 had). Had a heap of fun on that one.

    All I've owned is Yamaha, but not many.

    86(?) 550 Maxim. Wife & I enjoyed that bike & riding with her parents. Her dad rode nothing but Yamaha. We sold it when we started a family and went without an MC for almost 20 years.

    His Junior year of High School my son bought a 80-something Suzuki GS650. His bike but I rode it some, rekindled the flame.

    2014 or 15 I bought an 06 V-Star 1100 for my wife and I. We had a blast on that bike, I loved it but we wanted something more comfortable.

    2018 I bought my current ride, 07 Royal Star Venture. I was leaning hard toward a RSTD but decided once I upgraded the seat and put a batwing fairing on I'd have more money in it than if I bought the RSV. So RSV it was! No regrets!

    I drove that bike for many years, she really was a great bike. I hate seeing her sitting in the garage, but it was time to upgrade. So last week I picked up this
