MSTA member Denise Dickenson just hit 200k on her FZ1. And you thought you rode a lot...

FYI: the MSTA server just had a major-league melt down, that's why everyone's post count is 1 or 2.

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly.

A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles.
