Thanks, yes, I did write it. And it's all true, I swear. Well, maybe some of it...



I wrote it at lunch, after downing a 24 ouncer of Steel Reserve, from the Steel Brewing Company, Ft. Worth, Tx. 8.1% high gravity lager.



.99 cents a can at Ralphs.



Really gets those creative juices (*hic) flowing.

Rick is, for my money, one of the best motorjournalists on the planet.



I think the part in the book your refefencing is when he's buying his first bike, the '56 Triumph.



These things did happen, kind of a recap of all my Recycler stories, over the years.



Oh, and by the way, I bought the Honda.



Thanks for the comparison.

There's really no telling who actually did it.



The old seruzawa would have said that it's a neo-fascist coward trying to shut down the opinions of people he doesn't like.



TheNewConvertedInoffensiveSeruzawa realizes that he deserves to be punished for his failure to be properly sensitive to the feelings of others of all races, creeds and (trans)genders.

'Tis better to be moderated downward, than not at all, I say.



Same thing happened to the guy with the Boss Hoss.

If this story had taken place in Kemmerer, Wyoming instead of Sunland I would have sworn that you had been in my wife's Uncle George's garage. The woman would have been drunk and in a nightie, though.

Yes, they did make a "Bighorn", refered to as the "Pighorn" by people who had the unfortunate pleasure of owning one.



I do, in fact, exist, Vinnie. But only after having a few beers.



Thanks.
