MAVERICK

dean-maverickMy name is Dean “Maverick” Ambrose.  I was born in California.  The “old guy” here, my love of motorcycles started when I was just five.  The next door neighbor had a Harley with a sidecar and would take us kids for rides.  I loved it!  Wind in my face and freedom of the road. Ah the sounds of a motorcycle.  The local dealership would let me sit on the bikes.  I rode them all over the country in my young mind.  I moved to Idaho when I was 13 in 1967.  What a culture shock!  Things were different here than in California especially in the 60s..  My first bike was a Honda 50 which I rode everywhere.  Then moved up the Japanese ranks until marriage.  Then the bikes were gone!  When the kids were old enough to ride and get a bike, then I road again, in the dirt, not on the street.  When the kids left, then I resumed street riding.  I am now on my second Harley Davidson, a 2014 HD Street Glide Special FLHXS, my favorite bike so far.  Keep riding, keep the wind in your face, and the rubber down.
