Funny to see Bob's still hangin' out. I used to read his articles in Biker, one of the custom motorcycle mags, in the early 80's. His path parallels my own. Walked away from the Harleys when grungy bike shops turned into Boutiques. I'm glad to be here working on boats and leaving the road behind. I think I get his mindset. I still like his attitude, lol.

The old Lats & Atts bulletin board will not change. This new joint venture between SailNet and Lats & Atts is intended to broaden the respective horizons of each.

And if I know CD, there's more very cool stuff to come for SailNet...

I also came over from bikes to boats. Sailing gives me a lot of the same things I get from bikes.

I wonder how many others on SailNet have come to boats this way?

Same here

I get less broken body parts, also, I had to adjust from 70 mph though unknown open desert to 5kts over open waters and I had to come to terms with the reality that no matter how hard I tried, I could never preloaded a sailboat enough and jump a swell, however, on occasions, I still stick my foot out when I port or starboard tack

In the midst of that myself , Boats have been in my life since i was 15 or so , sea cadets on the praries in Sasketchwan, Canada. Bikes there also in '71 , but the biker thing is getting weird in some ways . Now in 57th yr. the boats are having enormous appeal , Where else can you get the biggest thrill and make coffee at the same time , and still being in your own home ? I've never matched the feeling I had on an old converted 12 meter , doing 14 knots !

Anyone want to buy a Harley? ( mine )

I'm working on going from bugs to boats... I think I would enjoy living and working on boats. I restore old VW's now, Its not like it was years ago alot of lost people have polluted it. I also rode bikes for 20 yrs intill my last one was stolen and I gave up on them.

Okay, now I have to go buy a Harley to be part of this blog. My "hog" stands 16 hands, is a Paint and loves to run cattle. Can I be a junior member?

Yup , burned out biker here too. Sold my last scoot to buy a dream. Sold both a 51 pan head and a 1937 80 inch flathead. Oddly I really don't miss em. Got tired of bikes in the pacific north west. Looking forward to sailing south soon , and having no vehicles.

I still own my bike but sailing gives you a different thrill than going 80 on ashphalt. I try to get on the bike as often as I can but considering on selling it soon. It's not the same as it used to be at one point.

I'd be curious on how may sailors dropped the HOG.
