      My Harley; a 1980 Low Rider which I had saved for all through my apprenticeship
      and then when I was starting my fourth year I bought it new for cash.

      Sold it to a friend some years later to get the cash for a down payment on my first house.

      He sold it to a friend who 3 months later dumped it one night while half lit and didn't pull through.

      Both he and the bike were totaled.

              1) 1.19 for a gallon of gas

              2) The music (Thanks Sirius)

              3) Not a care in the world. Work, sleep, hunt, fish.

              4) Much cooler cars

              5) No cell phone, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

              6) Rotary phones

              7) My grandparents were all still alive

                  Waiting for summer vacation and the 10 hour car drive to my grandparents house for my 3 month not long enough vacation.

                    All I heard about the 80's is:
                    cocaine, sex, money.

                    Course during that time, I was barely old enough to watch Sesame Street.

                      ditto, but for me that was the early 60s.

                        That sounds more like the 70's, I don't remember the 80's being the cocaine craze..I could be wrong though.

                          The birth of my son.

                          12-15 hour work days, 6 days a week.

                          Was able to afford to buy brand new vehicles.

                              1981, I was 28-years old, our last of 6 babies was finally out of diapers and I started my plumbing business. Life was good and it has only gotten better.
