    Damn life goes by way to fast.
    In all honesty though I have to admit with my troubled youth and heavy drug use back then I am surprised I turned it all around and made it this far.
    At 16 years old I was certified as an adult and sent away. I thought my life was all but over once I sobered up from the drugs and realized what I had done to myself and others.
    Sadly the hurdles I had almost pale in comparrison to some of the shit today's youths have to deal with.
    I don't think that old saying of kids having it easier with each generation really applies anymore. With the advent of the internet and instant gratification our kids don't get the grounded in reality upbringing anymore because there are too many outside influences now that twist them like pretzels.

    Anyhow I am glad to have made it this far.....

    CHEERS!

    I bought a new Harley and went on a 4-month cross-country adventure. Just a thought.

    Lol

    Got a client meeting tomorrow so I can't even tie it on right tonight.

    On the topic of bikes I would kill myself. I am a speed demon, that would not translate to two wheels very well.
