    After 62 yrs of riding

    thanks Joe... not that far from Orlando... just a ride down 27... I have done a lot of work on the Interstate... If my health was good,,, I would not be worried about making a run to Seattle and back... The bike would hold up better than the rider... I am going to ask 3500 for my bike...
