Darn winter does that to me. Anyway, I was thinking bact to my first cycle. It was a black Bridgestone 90. Man I was cool (I thought) riding down the road in black jeans, white t- shirt and black boots wearing my jean jacket with collar up. I remember pulling into a service station (that's what we called them because they serviced your vehicle) when 2 couples pulled in on Honda 50's (you know the ones with the step through scooter looking things). I looked at them , walk over and said something like "What's wrong, couldn't afford a real bike? Too bad they don't make it in a man's model. As I walked away I had one last parting shot at them. You can bet that company won't be around long. Man how things change, huh? Yet somehow they stay the same. I remember many years ago hearing a HD rider talking about a friends Honda and telling him that it looks like he couldn't afford a real bike. BTW his parting shot was I bet they won't be around long. Funny isn't it, how history repeats it's self.


Oh btw this show's just how bored I am with winter. Sorry

I amazes me how many people have some sort of early association with the Bridgestone 90. For years I thought it was just me, but when the topic comes up, I have had many tell me about them.
