Haven't had a steed in the garage since dying on Scott Rd hill in 2003... My days of being raked over a tank and going fast are long gone now so I've switched gears and gone with something more, ummm sedate?

2021 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom, picked it up last night and sitting at just over 400km today!

Rode Nelson, Kaslo (picked up my Dad), New Denver, Slocan and back to Nelson - Happy Father's Day to me!

Hey Crash-Tested ... holy crap ... were you the person on the BMW (I think) with the handle 'BigWhiteBox' (or something along that line) ... that got smashed at the top of the hill on Hwy 10 and Scott Rd, around ten years ago ... ???

18 years you say ... hoo-ha .... where'd all that time go?? From what I can recall, you were banged up pretty badly ... did you recover fully, over time?

yeah I was messed up for a while for sure!

Now I'd say I'm doing pretty good, I have 2 boys - 16 & 8 they said would never happen and finally back on the horse this year!! Only issue is a wonky back that can put me down for a week over the stupidest things i.e.: picking up a pair of ski boots, sneezing wrong (2x now LOL) - POP ahhhh shit!

Working out 5 days a week and feeling good for the most part!
