Pan Rider -

I have a soft spot for 59's, as my first motorcycle was (and still is) a 59 FLH. Mostly stock and in need of a major rebuild, after many good years of virtually trouble-free riding. It is on the lift, and will stay until this Winter when I begin disassembly. Picked it up in the early 70's with my Army seperation pay.

:D Great! A '59 Pan and almost-free medical (best in the USA, as good or better than Kaiser-Permanente?) for the rest of your life (although you do somethin' stupid like almost cut your finger off removing an old throttle grip, they'll let you stew in the waiting room for 4 or 5 hours just to give you time to "reflect" on where you went wrong). For two-four years in the military, the best foundation for a scooter tramp you could have.
