Bummer, R.I.P. Robert. :sorry: I bought this book when it first came out back in the mid 70's. At the time I was thinking it was all about motorcycle maintenance. Far from that it's quite the inspirational piece of literature. If you haven't read it do it. “The test of the machine is the satisfaction it gives you. There isn't any other test. If the machine produces tranquility it's right. If it disturbs you it's wrong until either the machine or your mind is changed.” Such a true statement. That is how we can ride and obsess over a basic 21 year old design machine. :2_thumbsup:
