Hey, how's it going, Howard? So I heard that you're really into motorcycles.
Ah, yes, I love motorcyles. I've been riding motorcycles since I was
15 years old.
Oh, really. Wow! So, what's the allure of motorcycles?
Freedom. I like the fresh air. I like being out on my own. And I just like
the feeling of riding on a bike. It's like a bicycle without having to pedal
and you go a lot faster.
Yeah, that's for sure. Do you have any good motorcylcle stories?
Ah, about 10,000 of them.
Well, have you ever like taken a special trip on a motorcycle?
I've been all over the East coast of the United States, from
Pennsylvania to Florida on a motorcycle. (Oh, wow) Yeah, I've travelled
many times and many different kinds of roads, and taken all kinds of
camping trips on bikes.
Wow, sounds great. So do you usually travel alone...or in a group?
Almost always I go alone. Some guys like to travel together but
I found I enjoyed it by myself most of all.
Oh really. Oh, wow. Don't you get kind of lonely?
Never, there's always a new adventure on every trip.
Have you ever made any special friends out on the road?
Sure, uh, bikers are like a special kind of fraternity. Every biker
knows each other, and we're all very close even though, we're not close.
