''Nutbars"? You must be from my old hood. Being older than you - as a kid I remember the UNITED NATIONS- Like all of us at that time we thought- great- a united world of mutual co-operation. Decades later all they seem to do is pit one nation against the other and sit like trouble makers on a bar stool- who whisper to the guy on the left that he sleeps with his mother- then whisper to the guy on the right that he is gay and in love with his dog. The two guys beat the crap out of each other as the UN goes through their pockets.
The bike in your avatar..your pick is great- My youngest son just started riding a twenty something year old 650 single cylinder - a real thumper- He was by today and he is so in love with riding...sure wish I was him sometimes...He just did his first long road trip and it was an endurance run....So proud of him for keeping himself in one piece...Never seen a guy so in love with a machine...cheers.
That was my last road machine, a 1974 HD Night Train that I bought new but truth is I ahd a 1970 Bonneville 650 which I regret ever selling. I was into off road then as well and that is one of my hobbies today.
That is a pic of me at 26 and the real change in me now is a bigger attitude.
Tell your son to drive as if he is invisible, he will live to be a lot older.
You ARE him and he IS you. My son is better than I was with more abilities and if I have my way, he will not have to go through the bs I did in my youth.
