Antique Motorcycles and Horses
Just a quick thought.
My brother in Seattle and I were on the phone for hours the other day yaking about motorcycles. He mentioned a 1939 Brough Superior SS80 so he guided me a site to see one. www.vintagebike.co.uk . Never heard of them before but it made me think of the Rikuo Japanese made Harley from the 1930's. Then of course I went on the net to look at them again. There are few of the machines in museums here in the States. As I was looking around the thought began of looking at other motorcycles sitting around in museums and the thought hit me as a bit sad. You know, these bikes were built to ride and not sit in museums. If I had the fundage I'd get me one of those old vintage bikes and ride that baby around. That is what they were for ... right. You wouldn't but a thoroughbred horse then lock him up in a stall for the rest of his life would ya.
