He had his arm in one sleeve of his coat (the ubiquitous olive drab Army field jacket) and I held the other. At first he had his right arm in... throttle control issues, switched to left and towed me home.
Those were the days! The old two stroke would clearly speak it's own language, one we used to sometimes curse back then but now look back on as some of the fondest memories of riding a motorcycle. Memories that kid's these days likely will never get to experience. Wouldn't give back those fun times growing up with that evolving technology.
