A little about me - I`ve been riding since 1966; my first bike was a `65 Norton Atlas I swapped it for a `54 Airel 4-Square (POS), traded back, and then traded it in on a 1967 Camero when I got back from Vietnam in 1968; I learned to ride on Hwy 90 between Biloxi, Mobile, and New Orleans. I got a `74 Honda 750 when I was in Japan (77-80) and really learned defensive riding while dodging the Kaw 900`s.
I have two sons, been married twice, the latest (and last) for 20+ years. I`m retired from the US Air Force (22 yrs) and from the University of Illinois (16 yrs). I have a BA degree in Liberal Arts and Science, I play XBox games (mostly in the Winter months), garden, keep up the house and yard plants. I have about 20 house plants I maintain. I love working on cars and bikes. Had a 1999 Corvette (03-11) that I would drag race at the local 1/8 mile track and attend local Corvette Club functions with but I sold it in Feb 2011. I`ve driven Covettes most of my life having had a 1967 Coupe (74-77), a 1980 T-Top (86-90), and a 1992 convertible (90-03). Enjoy Photoshopping pictures and making videos of events. Life is pretty good, I exercise (mostly daily), health is good, and stay busy just doing stuff. The wife is retiring shortly (Dec 2011) and then we`ll start traveling together (she won`t ride further than 100 miles - so it`s Planes, Trains, and Automobiles).
My Username (JOKE) stands for Joni & Ken (the JO from Joni, the KE from Ken).
