It's as much about frame of mind as it is the motorcycle.
No disrespect, but I don't think you remember very well...

I'm not certain myself, but I believe the article on his trip to NO was on a Bonneville, and the trip on the Bridgestone 50 was with a friend on his BICYCLE, and I think it was maybe 70 or 80 miles each way.

I just looked through Leanings II and I can't find the first book, so I can't swear to it, but I don't believe we ever wrote about going from Wisconsin to NO on a 50cc...
