Hi From the Sticks of Northern Alberta

My Name is Brent and I live in the sticks in Northern Alberta....Near Opal.

I am a retired Millwright ( 40 years ) and during the winter I rebuild and repair older bikes.
Over the years I have owned and rode all types of bikes and like them all.
To date I have 2008 KLR 685 / 2011 Triumph Tiger 800 and "Old Blue" a 1979 Ironhead.

I think there is a law that says once you have owned a bike....it is unlawful to be bikeless

Hey Brent. Glad you found your way here. I exchanged some messages with you on the Alberta DS Forum. Actually went through Opal last week and need to make another trip to Westlock, probably tomorrow. Are you right in town? Might have the opportunity to stop by.
