Moms dont tell you everything?
Good evening everyone.
I recently went on a road trip from Cleveland OH to Elizabeth City NC to visit my folks. Dad retired down there about 5 years ago. I took my LT great ride down and back except for 100 plus heat on the way back but no complaints really.
Back to reason for this thread. I pulled into my parents driveway in the afternoon with some anticipation for a long overdue visit. My Mom says what a beautiful and big bike.(same woman who told me no way in hell am I gonna get a bike as a KID!)
This gets better. My mom is from a small town outside of Munich ( Landshut)(spelling) and moved here as a 20 year old in 1960.
the next day at dinner my mom starts telling me about a story that when she was 14 her nieghbor Hans taught her how to ride a BMW motorcycle. I bleieve she said and thinks it was an R/71 but dont quote me.
So I had to ask?
And what was the reason I couldnt get that 1978 Suzook RM 125 with the Full Floater suspension?
The answer. Do you think I was gonna tell you that when you asked.
I did ask her if she wanted to go for a ride. she said those days are gone but not forgotten!
Have a great evening everyone, hope you enjoy the story!
