Right.



Good Story, I could imagine it all in my mind.



So nice of your Grandfather to take us all along on his way to the coast.



Thanks for The Telling.

That is the best motorcycle story I have ever read and in the top 5 for short stories ever. Excellent. Got any more?

This story would have been so much better if there was a Suzuki M109 in it.



What a waste of 12 bucks!

Great story! Put that journal and the few pictures together into a book, and get that bad boy published

Fook yeah fred. My grandpa rode from Cincinatti to LA on a 1917 Indian Scout back in the 20's. When I was a kid, he disappeared on my mini-enduro (much to the consternation of his wife) for about an hour at El Mirage dry lake. Came back with that same big grin.



Thanks for the memories.
