Ed, you may be interested in knowing that your photos were viewed at the men's club of our retirement center yesterday. Brought back a lot of "remember whens" to the group. Several suggested that I might be able to make pictures that well someday. Sigh.

Those small Honda fours (350/400cc) were very smooth. In contrast my 500cc- single cylinder Yamaha...having just one big piston @ 500cc vibrates like a paint mixer.

Big Dawg...those are wonderful pictures, very clear of some epic motorcycles. Being a motorcycle enthusiast I've heard or read about a number of them, but in some cases your photos are the first time I've seen some of them.

Hope you keep on posting, very interesting series.

Great pictures - my wife brought up a good point. In those days there wasn't many roads you would want to do 60mph !

Then there is the vibration-less motorcycle thing. As Harley riders we get jabbed about vibrations but she just smiles and says, "women look at vibration in a whole different way"

Must be working for her, she is 67 and still rides her own. <G>

Back to the Pierce -what a shame it didn't sell better, it's a fantastic looking bike and your pictures could have made for some great Ads for them.

That looks like a fun exhibit. My boys would chuck there scooters in a heartbeat for something like that.

Thanks guys. I'm glad these are bringing out memories and enthusiasm for them. I do promise more but will sort of space them out a little. As for being able to shoot them like that Dr. C...I fell certain you would do as well or much better.
