I stumbled across this & had to read the whole thing. You have a great writing style, kinda got a southern air to it. Y'all definitely get it rode....
I drove all over the south years ago but I'm thinking I am gonna have to ride back there about next year. Got a friend I went to school with lives in Norfolk & another in West VA someplace.
A lady out here has a Valk trike & she loves it. Makes a lot of the west coast rides on it.
Keep on riding & writing, and I'll keep on reading about 'em.
