Dad customized motorcycle seats as a "hobby" for YEARS. He went all over the country doing shows. That "HOBBY" put me through graduate school.

When he finally quit doing shows and just did mail orders, and sold his motor home. Then he would just TAKE OFF on random crazy trips with his buddies. This drove us nuts. We're in Alabama for Pete's sake - and he'd call out of the blue from UTAH - I'm not kidding. I had visions of someone killing him on the side of the road or having a wreck. I mean - he was in his 60's at the time!

Finally he sold his last motorcycle. His legs were getting weaker and (thank goodness) he didn't feel comfortable or safe doing the long rides.

Then comes the 4 wheelers - in his 70's. He's a member of two riding clubs and they go places a few times a month - and THAT scares me.

On top of that, he fishes EVERY DAY BUT SUNDAY. We have several lakes and a couple of nice rivers in the area so that's what he does constantly. Also from September through December he goes to LA with his fishing buddies. So there's the ALLIGATOR FACTOR....

It's like having a 76 year old teenager.

It's a beautiful bike, Megan! I love the color. (I know that is of the least importance! It's very pretty, however.)

Thanks. Acually the paint is the main reason I was so badly wanting this bike back. (story coming.....!!)

Story:

My dad bought the bike for me for christmas and hide it in his shop for 3 months before. While he was hiding it from me he took it apart all by himselft and shipped off the tank and fenders (all paint areas) to fortworth then went up there and hand picked the color for my bike. He told me when he gave it to me that he picked the color because my eyes turn that color when I am really really mad (which as a teenager I was most of the time ) so the bike matched one of my eye colors!!!!
