By way of intro: real name is Rick. The basketcase username is a nod towards some of the motorcycles I've owned.

I’m married with two grown and married children, and three grandchildren. My wife and I live in a quiet neighborhood with nearby access to countless country roads (paved and unpaved) for my mostly therapeutic riding habits.

Key words: former Marine, truck guy, motorcyclist, and teacher/educator.

I’ve loved all things with two wheels since learning to ride a bicycle on a Hale County dirt road at age five. My first motorcycle was a Suzuki TC-90. Since then it’s been Hondas and BMW’s until I bought a DR650 and rode the Continental Divide Trail in July 2010. The VStrom 650 in the photo may become my last motorcycle.

Not much else to tell. Eventually I’ll get out and will make it to some of the organized stuff and meet some of you.

Current rides: 2001 GL1800, 2014 DL650 Adventure; Gone away: 5 BMW's, 4 Honda's, 2 Suzuki's

Welcome back.
Good intro and hope to ride with you soon.
