Re: Fastest way to board your boat

Wow, that's a keeper. Hope the fella didn't hurt much more than his pride.

As far as riding on the sidewalk, having toured 5 European countries on a motorcycle myself, I can attest that European motorcycles ride wherever they please.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Re: Fastest way to board your boat

I found this link on my Aprilia forum.
Me too.

I'm thinkin' it's time to put away (sell) my silly toy, as I've made it this far, 54 without accident. What am doing with a 180 hp 400# motorcycle anyway. Besides, The funds will help with the new boat.
Big Mistake IMHO. The RSV4 might not be the right bike for you but don't give up motorcycling! LOL I considered the new "4" but am so happy with my '03 Tuono I just can't justify buying one. I'd be just as happy with a dual sporter for the street, especially around town.

I'm 70 next month and plan a track day for my present to myself. I honestly think motorcycling has kept me young. Young in body and spirit. Kept me sharp and alert and allows me to hone my skills on a daily basis.

Observation from 20 years in the business: people who stop riding miss it, a lot. I find many parallels motorcycling/sailing but one main difference is; motorcycling is fun and practical while sailing is fun only. When times got tough for me years ago it was the boat that got sold, I rode the bike every day, put 92,000 miles on that bike. I needed that bike not the boat. Now, times got a little better and I thought the boat would be fun again (and it is.)

'Course that's me and just my unsolicited advice.
