Burton Brink, N6USO
I am a Advanced Licensed holder who loves using “HAM” radio from my Goldwing Motorcycle and anywhere else. My first Goldwing was a 1986 Honda 1200 Goldwing Aspencade with over 117,000 miles on it. I now have a 2002 Honda 1800 Goldwing that has my Kenwood 742 radio on it. I have been riding motorcycles since 1976, and have ridden over 400,000+ miles. It is one of the best feelings, riding in the wind.
I participate in many Charity events, such as the Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup relay race, Harley Davidson “Love Ride” (Muscular Dystrophy MDA), and Honda’s “Ride for Kids”, as well as many other Charity events.
I’m a major supporter of “HAM” radio as my Brother, KC6WVL/ Father, KC6WVM/ Wife, KE6SUW/ Father-in-law, W6NUN/ Brother-in-law KE6SUV and the most recent is my Son, Shawn, KG6TDG all have since received their “Ham Tickets”. My youngest, Tyler has shown an interest and hopefully will get his soon.
