What is it about the experience of riding an old bike?
With old bikes, people aren’t amazed you got there quickly; they’re amazed you got there at all. They go, “What? You were on the freeway with this?” So that’s the fun part about it. My Brough Superior SS100 is a V-twin. It weighs maybe 450 pounds, but it’s got 50 horsepower and it’s [ from] 1930. Consequently, it’s pretty quick. But when it’s time to stop, you just find yourself saying, “Excuse me! Sorry!” sailing through stoplights and stuff. You learn to use the accident-avoidance technology, you know?
