Four By Four -- Another Meme

Looks like I've been tagged again, this time by Zorph. And this ain't gonna be as easy as it looks...

Four vehicles I've owned:
Kawasaki 100
Honda 150
Yamaha 350
Suzuiki 650
-- Don't ask for years or models, because they have long gone, and I don't remember. I do remember that the Yamaha was my personal favorite -- much more pickup than the mere "350" would suggest...

Four jobs I've had:
Short-order cook
Grocery stocker
Pizza delivery
Auto parts delivery
-- And this is barely scratching the surface. I'm the restless sort.

Four place I've lived:
Trenton, Ontario
Whitehorse, Yukon
Gimli, Manitoba
Kingston, Ontario
-- All military bases (or were at the time -- two of them are now closed).

Four vacations I've taken:
-- Life is a vacation, guys. I rarely plan anything like this (except for one trip to Florida for the opening of Disney World and a tour of Cape Canaveral -- that took two weeks).

Four tags:

Carry on...

Comm. tech, eh? Signals Corps?

...but you're supposed to do this as a post on your own site, then tag four more bloggers to do the same...

Comm Tech--Navy, until the mid 80's we were all crossed trained as operator maintainers. I'll tag a few people as soon as I get my outstanding work done this evening.

I know how ya feel about holidays, as a contractor it's hard for me to book the time.

Nice list of wheels, I started my 2 wheeled life on a much smaller bike than yours - a 10cc Coleman minibike... after working up to a 49cc moped so I could get on the road (I was too young for a drivers license so had to go that route) and then moving through the 100 - 500 range (dirt & street) I am currently restoring and riding a 1982 XJ750.

What I liked about my Yamaha (RD series -- the only one I remember) was the way it seemed to become part of me when I was riding. It wasn't a good touring bike though, which is why I went for the Baby Buffalo.
