Perhaps I should link to this very thread in the blue balls category?
I gotta nominate Makiko Sugino for the "Best ride report posted by everybody except the rider" category
Or maybe just chuck it in "Epics" or the unlikely machine one
Love your thread. A couple of my favorites are already on the list. Didn't see one of my all time favorites. Two of my favorite ADVers, Shogs and KayLR both told me I should read this. How right they were.
It's Crooked Road's transcription of Chas K Findlay's ride from Alabama to Virginia in 1916 or so, when he was all of 16 or so, on an Indian. A fascinating look at what motorcycling and life was like many, many years ago.
