Old hand passin' thru

Hello all.

Over the years, I've often wondered how the love of riding could be so much a part of my soul.

So I had my DNA tested and the results came back confirming the presence of the motorcycle gene. The lab added a note saying they found an elevated level of the Hooligan gene as well.

I have a feeling there are many members here with the same genetic pattern. Maybe we're linked somehow. Ya think?

Current bikes:
2010 V Star 950
2015 Yamaha FZ-07

Previous bikes:
2012 Ninja 650R
2009 Harley XL1200C / Sportster Custom**
2009 Suzuki GSF1250SA / Bandit*
2008 Suzuki Vstrom DL1000
2004 Kawi Vulcan 1600 Classic**
2003 Honda Shadow ACE*
1997 Honda Valkyrie
1983 HD ElectraGlide FLH**
1971 Honda CB750K1**
1966 Suzuki X6 Hustler ~ became everybody's 'learn to ride' bike
**stage 1 = air intake, performance exhaust, carb/rejet or FI controller
* slip-on muffler(s) only

Hi Q, welcome to the forum. Nice intro, we must have gone to the same place to have our DNA tested. My results were the same as yours! I'm thinking we are all linked somehow. Please share some pics of your current rides, we're very visual. Ride em' safely!

Welcome Q! Well I don't have the hooligan gene and it took the motorcycle one 52 years to break out but I'm grateful to have my steel horse [950 Tourer] and I plan to ride till the wheels come off!
