Hello Mr. Knifemaker. :D

I don't believe we've ever met, but I have ridden in your area of Missouri...

Hello. I actually live in a small town about 50 miles SW from downtown St. Lou. Over the course of my life I kept moving farther and farther from the city.
Now living on a 65 acre lake in what most folks from town would call "the sticks". Lot of gravel roads, twisty county roads, and the 100 foot steep rock driveway is why I traded my FJR in for the Bonneville.

I live in a small town south of Pacific Missouri called Catawissa. Only claim to fame is having like the first female serial killer back in the 19th century.
I do like the Bonneville. Wanted one since high school. No problems with it flying up or down the driveway, where theFJR made me nervous.

And yes, I am THE Knifemaker. ;)
