Picture found!
« on: June 16, 2016, 09:38:46 am »
Found this picture of my grandfather on his Indian motorcycle


And an old one of me a few years ago...


Guess I know where I got my love of motorcycling from.

My mom couldn't recall and I was simply impressed she knew it was a motorcycle. Ha ha. Apparently he rode it all the time. My older brother said that he thought it was an Indian though a Harley does sound more likely.

awesome picture. i like how the angle and pose in the two pictures matches just enough to make a connection.

BTW - is that the same hill in the background?  Just noticed that.

Check that - not quite the same topography - still.  Neat.

Mooshie, ever played with photoshop to add a little mint chocolate chip to the fairing...?  It could add a nice touch/flair to Dash.

my great-grandfather apparently rode an adler. and according to my grandmother, rode it like a maniac.
my father apparently inspired his uncle to get a motorcycle after he, as a kid, remarked that his horse that he used to pick him up from the train station to spend the summer on his farm, was starting to look skinny. the following year the uncle picked him up on a bike.
