In the jungle

Write about your XS650.: Long story short I got divorced last year and with that the house, cars and dogs stayed with ex. I got a backpack and freedom. Since then I moved to Hawaii and lived in the jungle. I’ve had some kind of ride since 1963 (yes, I’m 65) and had to sell my last bike in 2009.

Since I don’t have a place to build anything I did the next best thing and had Voodoo Vintage in Austin build me a bike. Dave gave me a bike that was everything I wanted. Of course it’s not “finished” because they never are, but I love it. I’ve already riden to Louisville, KY and will be heading back to Austin next week. The ride is great and my ass feels better then on my ’99 Road Star.
