Last year I rode in a fundraising rally for a homeless shelter and most of the bikes (and trikes) were Harleys. Most of the riders talked about all the work they had done to get their bikes running right and all the fancy accessories working. One of them asked what I had done to keep my ‘73 BMW running and I told them “set the points, adjust the timing, check the tire pressure, and get on and ride all season.” His eyes got real big at my answer. He just couldn’t believe that an old (well made) bike would run that well.

I won the prize for the oldest bike at the rally. They gave me a set of wrenches that I haven’t touched yet.
