Awsome article! It's like stepping back in time to an era of when most of the bikes were born, and then some. There are a lot of places in Northern Ca. that I have seen that could be nice to do that in. But you have to put up with a lot of tourists, traffic, and high prices. Too bad you have to travel half the world to enjoy a ride like that.

Fun read.

I often think about owning a vintage bike, but the guys I know that have them are always "working" on one thing or another. They usually are trying to find some part from 1958 and they are much better with a wrench.

I'm afraid when it breaks it will stay broke. Maybe I could duplicate the experience with a 2005 Super Glide.(just kidding)

Now that is an adventure tour. If you've never tried flipped brake/shifting, take plenty of time to get used to it. If you think learning BMW controls is a challenge, boy are you in for a treat. Especially if the shift pattern is reversed too.

Pick up a vintage Duc. They used to have this clever device called a "kick starter". People used to actually be able to start a motorcycle with a dead battery with one of these "kick starters".

Great article and pix ~ love that BSA Gold Star, always wanted one but was too busy raising a family to afford one.



I started riding in 1948 when I bought my first Harley after getting out of the Navy.

I'm stilling riding today and have a Suzuki SV650, which is the most fun street ride I've ever owned. ;)



Oregon has great roads to ride on without much traffic, much better than Calif where I moved from in '90.
