Blast From The Past: Loving My Intruder 1400!

1996 Suzuki Intruder 1400cc

After a year of being "bikeless" and finding myself scrupulously getting my jollies off on some rather inferior motorcycle school bikes (I am a whore, I know) I finally have come into a situation in my life where I can happily announce that I am once again a complete and whole "biker!" (Sigh). It was a lonely year, what without the sweet embrace of cold steel on flesh or the rumbling of that oh so familiar V-Twin between my legs. Adding to nostalgia is the faint scent of oil filling your nostrils as you wait at a set of red lights, fists punched out into the air without a thought of anything or anyone in the world. Yes, just thinking about it sends me blushing not unlike a school girl. I make no apologies though, after all, after 34 years I have come to embrace my passions with a fury and motorcycling just happens to be that one passion that supersedes any and all other hobbies or interests.
