About Slowhand
Started riding dirt bikes like most of you in a pasture. Got my first street bike in 82, it was a KZ750 rode the hell out of it across the country till the Chino Hay Company of Chino California lost a load of hay bales in front of me on the interstate. So I have had many bikes from Harley-Davidson's to Jap bikes. Working on getting a NSU that has been in the family for years. I buy, sell and repair bikes as a hobby.
