Thanks. Dad played fiddle and french harp (harmonica) until he started medical school but he did stay on playing the harmonica.

My dad started with the violin at age six. In 1922, he paid $300 for the violin that he toured with. He kept giving me 2/4 violins, hoping I would follow in his footsteps. I tried playing that lil' violin like a guitar. I ended up racing bikes for a living. That was something he feared and distained.

Love the profile of that Harley Cafe Racer, great picture.

Loved that Harley like a family member. My arthritis in my neck and shoulders got so bad I couldn't ride so I finally sold her. I still have my '59 Triumph race bike sittin' in my living room but the Harley needed to be ridden. It was a great bike. I have lots of stories about it. I took it to a bike show once and for a while there were more folks crowded around it than were in looking at the Show bikes. I think the color had something to do with that.

In case you find that last entry confusing, My last avatar was an XLCR Harley painted Porsche guards red!
