My signature tells part of my story (current bikes).
Over the years, I've owned 17 different bikes. When I think of all the money I've put into the bikes (bike, maintenance, mods, etc., etc.) I sometimes think I must be insane. Then I realize that actually, the bikes have kept me sane. Like the saying goes, bikes are mental therapy.
I've also had a few boats, PWCs, ATVs, sports cars (currently have an '06 Miata I've lowered for handling and I'm thinking about adding a supercharger or turbo). And my current "toy" that is taking money out of my bank account is my weekend property where I'm just about finished putting up a camp house and doing work on a pond (oh yea, forgot about the other toy, my Kubota B7300).
Now, don't get me wrong; I'm not trying to brag or anything. I consider myself EXTREMELY lucky that my business has brought me what it has. When I was growing up my parents did what they could but we never had a lot. When I was in my early 20s I never dreamed I'd have what I do now. I just wish my dad was still alive to enjoy my weekend place in the woods; he really loved getting out to quite places like that.
