I have lived in the northwest part of Illinois all my life. Today that is the 17th Congressional District, 45th Senatorial District, & 89th Representative District.
I started riding some kind of two wheeled motorize cycle at the age of 8 years. In 1973 I picked up a 1969, 125-CC Harley Davidson, but moved over to a 125-CC Yamaha. In 1976 I pick up a 1976 FXE 1200-CC Super Glide Harley Davidson and have never looked back. Today I have a 1988 FLHTC 1340-CC Harley Davidson that I bought new in March of 1988, with over 320,000.0 miles!! I also have a 1986 FLTC 1340-CC with sidecar with 56,000.0 miles. In this time frame 1976 until today I have owned 12 different Harleys, along with 3 different Yamahas.
