Hi! Frank here from northern Ohio and a new member! Finally joined Honda Twins after perusing it for several years. My current stable holds two Honda Twins, a 1972 CB350K4 and a 2008 CB250 Nighthawk, and a 2010 SYM Symba (aka “Cub”). My earliest experiences riding date back to junior high and high school when two classmates of mine shared a couple of their many bikes with me. First, a Honda CT70 for off-road tiddling and then a 1970s CB200 - my first experience with twins ;) Those days got me hooked. I crashed; got bruised but learned a lot. I’m still in touch with those classmates, one of whom has ridden extensively in the U.S. and Europe. I got back into motorcycling about 10 years ago, as time and funds, became more available. Since then, I’ve been a rider/wrencher, trying to balance career, life, family and other pursuits. I’ve participated in several Mods v Rockers rallies, rode in a couple of DGR events, attended Vintage Motorcycles Days south of here. All great! I‘ve visited the Ace Cafe in London and the Ace in Orlando. I joined their London Club, as well as the nearby historic 59 Club; the AMA and the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club (VJMC). I‘ve visited the AMA Hall of Fame and had planned to visit Barber last spring but COVID restrictions forced a postponement of that trip, as well as visits to other motorcycle museums across the U.S. Now finally retired, I have a little more time to focus on my humble stable of bikes and, perhaps, share any knowledge I picked up with others. I love all types of bikes, but prefer to saddle small displacement types. I find them light, agile and zippy. I can watch MotoGP and Superbike on TV. Phew! I‘ve typed a lot and thanks for reading. Glad to be here!

Hi Frank. You look to be well traveled. Mighty typative too. I'm also from Ohio. I've never been to the motorcycle hall of fame. I would like to go sometime. My friends call me a workaholic. I put jigsaw puzzles together whenever I find time. Usually they run when I get them finished. If not I take it apart and then it's a jigsaw puzzle again.

Nice to meet you! Yeah, sorry ‘bout the long intro. Need to self-edit more.

Hi again Frank. Just wondering what you are up to. I've gotten to a dead end with my bike for a while. Waiting for parts. I'll start a new project while I'm waiting. Basket case chainsaw. That should be interesting and keep me busy for a while.

The museum at Barber is really, really good. If you find yourself in the area with a few hours to kill it is definitely a must see for motorcycle enthusiasts. There are some cars there too, but the bike displays are very well done. I was there 2 years ago first time at Barber, participating in an AHRMA event. A day at "Vintage Days" events (Barber, Mid Ohio, etc) is fun!!
