And of course the bikes were getting a bit dirty.
Now, THAT brings back memories.

Back in '68, at about 50MPH on my BSA 650 Lightning, the pavement stopped and I was on wet red clay. Down we went, picking up enough of the stuff to almost double our weight.

I still don't know how something that slippery on the ground can stick so well to everything else
