Hiya, I'm a new guy here. 'Been around the block once or twice. "Old Bikes" is a pretty small community; some of you might even know me from 4,100+ posts on Buzz Kanter's CAIMAG board, as just "Sarge," and 500-some posts on ShovelheadUS. I've lurked here and used the JJ forum as a resource for years; so I just up and thought I'd register to participate. I've been around these internet bike discussions since "AOL Harley Bar," I think, about 15 years ago, at the "dawning" of Algore's internet, here. I date myself.

My last "new" bike offa dealer's floor was a 2000 Triumph 750 I didn't get along with very well, after all, and I got rid of it. My old 3-speed sidevalve v-twins serve my needs. We've been all over the country together. I've been in the AMCA since 1972, judging since 1982. I've known Chris Haynes and some others into 36 ELs since about 2001. I'm also on Facebook as "Gerry Lyons," my real name, if anyone cares to look me up.

I'm boring, cuz I don't have but one complete bike, currently: "Ol' Tex," the 37 UL I found behind a barn in 1970. It was my introduction to Harley-Davidson (if you don't count the engineless, girder-forked Harley 125 I rode down hills as a widdle kid before then).

The whole story of me findin' the UL and throwin' most of it away to make a "chopper," before seeing the light a couple years later and spending the better part of my life and earned-income after that trying to put it back together, is at: http://www.37ul.com.

That website was a little present from my adult son, Ken, the internet wizard (don't we all have one?), to his old man a couple years ago. Much the same story is here: http://rmhparkinglot.com/index.php?section=1&page=14http://rmhparkinglot.com/index.php?section=1&page=18. That's maintained by a member of the newsgroup Rec.Motorcycles.Harley ("R.M.H") for members there. I'll find a pic to put up of Ol' Tex, here.



This little guy, Spot the Border Collie, "owns" the sidecar; he just lets me drive him around. This is him winning a local Founders Day Bike Show/Poker Run last year, a 75 mile run around Lake Apopka, Florida.
