I have, at the age of 66, just purchased (like, a week ago) a brand new 2009 Harley Sportster 883L. I just never, never got over "The Wild One."

 

There’s something about
having your head in the wind
instead of up your ass.
 
There’s something about
Going from sun into shade
And actually feeling the change.
 
There’s something about
The smell of newly cut hay,
And the good rich odor
Of newly-spread manure.
 
It’s why I’m out there,
Pushing the envelope,
Fulfilling childhood
Fantasies.
At the age of
66.
 
But I ran the original Route
Of the same number
And it taught me
There are more important things
Than deadlines, and schedules,
like having time
to lie in the sun
and worship
the ocean.
 
So I ride.
I fly.

Dear Wild One II, don't get reckless if I tell you how much
I like this ride on the wild side, but--I like as much or more
the way you tell it. Pat, the writing and the structure of the
writing reveal the hand of a great talent, on and off the Harley.

My oldest brother is 65 and he recently purchased a Harley. Hmmm. Makes one wonder. Love and peace,

If the only option for your head is in the wind or up the ass, I'll take the wind too. I have a great uncle in his late 70s who still rides his Harleys. I wish you many happy miles. Enjoyed.
