R&L: Tell us about your motorcycle (specs, restoration work, unique items).
David Smith: It’s a model year 2000 motorcycle with only 2,190 miles. It’s still a new bike.
R&L: Do you have a fun/interesting story about the motorcycle?
David Smith: At the auction, it would not start with a new battery, the tires were dry-rotted, and the gasoline had turned to Jell-o.
R&L: What excites you most about owning this motorcycle?
David Smith: I’m an old man and this is not an old man’s motorcycle. I ride a three-wheel Honda trike with 125,000 miles on it. I’m the first owner and my Baby, my border collie dog, is my co-rider.
