My First Bike

My First Bike- Jerry (Winter 2017)

“My first bike was a ’73 353 Honda. I purchased it in 1977. It’s the same bike I taught my sister Carolyn how to ride in the GE parking lot off of old Hartford road. My inspiration for getting a bike was my best friend. I rode his, a 1966 250 Harley Davidson. The first bike I ever wrecked I didn’t get seriously injured and fortunately the bike only had a dent on the gas tank. That same friend found me my current bike a 2008 Harley Davidson Fatboy. I have been riding for 40 years. To me riding is therapy. I can clear my mind of all my worries and troubles. Being able to break away from reality for a while and just take a ride is very soothing for me. “-Jerry
