My name is Jim. I’m a greybeard who took his first cross
country motorcycle ride on the back of a Moped, if you can call that a
motorcycle. I’m not sure how long the ride was but it took about 12 or 14 hours
as best I can remember. It was a long time ago, I was 15 at the time and memory
fades with age.


I was born in Texas, grew up in Arkansas, and followed my
folks to California when I got out of the Army in 1953. I worked part time in a
gas station and attended college 2 years before dropping out to work full time
as a surveyor and raise a family. It was during the time I worked in the gas
station that I became a motorcycle enthusiast. A friend had a surplus WW11 army
motorcycle. It was a 1945, forty five Cu In Harley. What a ride!!

Through that friend I met another guy who soon became a
friend. He had a Triumph Thunder Bird he was fixing up to sell so I bought it
and thus began a lifelong love affair.


I have ridden thousands of miles on different motorcycles.
My first cross country motorcycle ride was on a 58 Triumph TR6. That was a bugs
on the teeth. wind in the hair type motorcycle. It was a striped down version
of the Thunderbird. I was in the saddle from early morning to after midnight. I
thought I was going to freeze to death.


I hope the tips on Cross Country Motorcycle Ride will make
your ride a little more pleasant. Lets ride!!
