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...
Quoting myself to provide an update...

In Leanings (the first book) Egan writes about a Honda 50 (not a Bridgestone) in an article called Because it's Small, published in March, 1978. And the state park he visited with his friend on the bicycle was about 150 miles away.

I guess I didn't remember very well either!
