In addition to playing my dulcimer, I love riding my motorcycle around the beautiful back roads of San Luis Obispo County, where I live.  I'm currently riding a 2007 Suzuki SV 650; in the past, I've ridden a 900 and a 1000 Ducati Monster, and a BMW R65.  Someday maybe I'll get a traveling dulcimer to strap on the back of my bike!

Hi Diane, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
