Late 60's. When I used to ride the 150 miles home from college in the winter, my riding gear was EVERY BIT OF CLOTHING I OWNED !!!!

Those crash bars came in handy as I dropped it twice. The 2nd time it wouldn't start afterwards, I walked around it puzzlin', then noticed that the megaphone tail pipe was stuffed full of grass/mud (it had slid backwards into a grassy bank). Dug it out and off I went !! *grins*

"on the road" isn't that hard of a concept to grasp.

The "road" where one would ride a street bike primarily.

Not "US 129" which is a road.
