CANNONBALL WRAP IN CYCLE WORLD

Check it out; I'm busy finishing articles for MCN in England, Café Racers in France, Oily Rag magazine, and of course, a special helmet-eye view of the whole thing for The Vintagent.  Gotta pay the rent, but loyal/patient readers get something special...

For now, my second installment for Cycle World can be found here.

Superb writing, Pablo. I even read some sentences twice, just because they sounded so good. Bravo!

it really puts the expression 'motorcycle emptiness' in context;the absorption of listening to each mechanical nuance when on a log run. nice piece.

I recall doing Oklahoma City to Tulsa after my MGA spent a day being tuned by someone who knew how to do it. It sang. I should have realized that it couldn't last because it didn't. The rest of the haul to Chicago was a nightmare of listening and wondering if the misfiring motor would make it another yard. It did but I still suffer the PTSD! You expressed the feeling perfectly.

Your four paragraphs of 'low point..' convey the 'why' of the Cannonball so perfectly. It brings forward the perseverance and the 'this to shall pass' frame of mind; to problem solve that which maybe view as low point or challenge. At a later time I'd really like to know where your mind when when you realized that there was no current replacement for the cam. Excellent writing as always
