I was in the military back in '86. I bought a brand new Honda Nighthawk 650 and got 6 weeks of leave that summer. I was 26 and rolled out the front gates of CFB Petawawa for the time of my life. I toured most of North America. From Yosemite, the Avenue of the Giants in Oregon, the Great Plains, the Rockies, I slept in ditches 'neath the stars, washed in rivers, ate a billion tacos, drank whiskey and racked up 15, 000 miles, all solo.
I will never forget those miles and the smiles.
