In The Beginning
My Riding really began with the BMW R90S. Bought it new in1976. The salesman tried to talk me out of this powerful bike. Said it was a handful for a novice rider. WellI just thought, what the heck, you don't have to twist the throttle all the way to the stop. Take it slow and learn to manage what you have. I did.
At that time was living in San Luis Obispo, CA. Blasted all over the Central Coast and down to Los Angeles and Southern California. There are a few times when a friend of mine, Joe, would stop after work, around 5PM and ask: "So what to ride to dinner" So we did. Jumped on the bikes, he had a BMW R750 at the time, and we blasted down to Westwood for dinner and a movie. Returning the same night. Now that is bit over 400 mile round trip! We did this a few times.
Youth, you gotta be crazy!
