Hello from a new old guy in San Antonio

Just checking in to say hello to all. The old guy part is I am closer to 73 years old than 72, things like that matter now for some reason, like they did in my single digit years, when someone asked how old you were, you would make sure they knew you were 7 and 1/2.
My first "real" motorsickle was a BSA Victor I bought in 1967 for some ridiculous price like $775 brand new. I loved/hated that bike. Have had most all brands and styles, currently on an '09 Harley Ultra which is getting a little too big for what riding I do now. Also in the stable is a 1976 Honda Trail 90 project and a 1955 Cushman 911, lets call that a running project. Pictures to follow.
I am looking forward to seeing what is going on around Texas.

Re: Hello from a new old guy in San Antonio

Welcome to TWT. Sounds like you have some interesting vintage iron in your garage. Lotta friendly folks from the SA area on this board, & they'll step up & introduce themselves soon enough. I'm originally from there, myself (grew up 1/4 mile from what is now the corner of I-10 and West Ave), although haven't lived there since '66.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
