percent of the time there is a story that goes the motorcycle, and ninety percent of ninety percent of the time, the has an equally interesting story. I stories, that’s why I’m always the one to arrive at the campsite or hotel.

I was deciding on an older bike for I narrowed the field down to BMW or Guzzi.
