Name: Rick Carnagey

Nickname: Some people call me Rich.

Age: 41

Occupation: USPS Maintenance Support

Hobbies/Other interests: Learning about networking, and troubleshooting and repairing computer problems.

Type of Ride: 1996 Honda 750 VFR (Interceptor) Purchased Feb 2005 with 3500 miles on it!

Dream ride: Possibly a Yamaha FJR1300 or a Honda ST1300….. maybe I already have it with my VFR!

How long have you been riding?: I rode for 14 years then took a 14 year break while my kids were growing up and have just gotten back in the saddle again as of Feb 2005.

Miles ridden this year: 15,000 (2005-2006)

What do you like about riding?: What’s not to like!? The merge between man and machine, the exhilaration ofsweeping through the curves and rolling on the throttle, the bond between fellow bikers who love to ride.

Why did you join SCRC?: To ride with and hang out with people who love motorcycles and motorcycling.

What does SCRC mean to you?: A group of friends that look out for each other and ride together. Something I look forward to every weekend.

Rides I like the most: Long trips covering many miles and seeing many sites. I also love the feeling of being in a HUGE formation ride where you watch the bikes a half mile ahead of you crest the hill in front of you and you look in your mirror and see the bikes behind you coming over the hill a half mile behind you!

Dream trip: Alaska to Argentina visiting every country and as many states as possible on the way.

Favorite Quote: Happiness is the reward we get for living to the highest right we know. (Richard Bach)
