Any other COFA members ride?

I rode for many years with my first bike being a Honda 90 that I leanerd to ride in Siagon while serving there with the Navy in 1967-68. I owned three more Hondas after that little 90 with the last one being a 750. My late wife and I rode the 750 to Niagaria Falls Canada from Baltimore in the early 80's. I sold that bike in 1991 as I didn't ride much as I had a boat to occupy my time on the weekends.

With the gas prices I've been thinking about getting another bike. I prayed about it and sought God's wisdom. I found two bikes, the same year, same price, and same amount of money. I had planned to look at both but woke up last week and felt in my spirit that I was to only look at the one closest to home. I bought that bike and brought it home this week. Its a 2005 Harley XL883 with 3300 miles on the clock. Between the new-to-me bike and my Corvette it keeps me thinking young thoughts, :mrgreen: and I'm looking forward to riding with my son and grandchildren. I plan to check out some of the Christian organizations that ride and promote Jesus.

I have noticed several more motorcycles on the road these days, I bet the gas prices have a lot to do with this. Carroll you notice that out your way?

I think the high gas prices cause more people to ride. I get close to 59 mpg on the road.
