I started riding when I was going to college at Clemson with the mountains only 30 minutes away. Started out with a Bridgestone 200 and then a Bridgestone 350GTR (which I still have). I was lucky enough to ride with Clemson Café, a bunch of motoheads who rode Nortons, Ducatis, Moto Guzzis, etc. I ended up with a '75 Norton Interstate. A move to Atlanta stopped my riding for a while. When I returned to Columbia, I saw a K75 in the paper and bought it. Then I bought a Ducati ST2.
