I really enjoy the "real" Highwayman poem.

I remember the Highwayman and JB etc way back circa '99ish also. Twas a great time.

The 'Highwayman' was posting on many forums at that time. I saw his posts on other forums long before he posted on MO. The guy was a classic for sure! JB wanted to do an MO interview with him, but like KP the reality wouldn't match the fantasy.

Man, that was a long time ago, wasn't it!

How many fringed armchaps have we worn out since those days.

Blip, Brent/Ashley, BLM(JB), Sean.

Man! I need to go ride...

I have some old Motorcyclists by the crapper in the basement. I really enjoy reading the old BLM articles.

I still think The Highwayman was Burns' alter ego.

Speaking of JB, where the hell can I find his articles on MO?

And while we're speakin' of him, anyone know if he is still writing?

Last I understood, he was in the employ of some advertising outfit...

You know, those 'Enzyte' ads have a certain 'zing' to them, don't they...?

Hi Guys,

.....planting the boots on the "forward mounted controls" *BEFORE* firing up the "powerful motor" was a tip-off.....really funny, though. I wish I'd been around when it was posted....

No reprise of his "Bitter Little Man" stuff there, tho.

(from what little I've seen)
