Blue Ridge Ride June 2012

A few weeks ago I heard ♫ Long Lonesome Highway ♪ on a local Oldies radio station and it created a flood of memories about those years.  I was 16 years old and riding my first bike when Then Came Bronson came out and I loved the series.  I graduated to a 1969 XLH which I kept and rode until I joined the Air Force in 1971 and went to Southeast Asia.  Hearing the music sent me to the internet where I found JimBronson.com and love it.  This website is a fantastic tribute to a great but short lived show.

That seems to be the pattern in U.S. television, the more intellect is needed to understand a show and the more thought provoking it is, the shorter it runs.  Tight money and the need for a car moved me away from that love for many years, but now I am feeling the draw again to ride.   I purchased a new 2009 883 Sporty, and thanks to JB.com for helping to bring back a piece of my youth.

I plan on making several Bronson changes so check back.
