I attended the Hebron meet this year, riding about 250 miles on my 1969 Thunderbolt. I say about 250 as the speedo on my bike has not worked since I purchased the bike in 1978. I took this bike at the last minute as my Harley crapped out earlier (thats another story). Everytime we stopped people came up to talk about the BSA. Something about this bike touches a nerve and seems to make everyone interested in starting a conversation.
Of course this is only a secondary bonus as the real privilidge is being fortunate enough to own and ride such a fantastic machine. But still I have put a lot of miles on several vintage machines and part of the fun, of course is meeting people who admire your ride but BSA's really seem to bring out the best crowds. No B.S.
There was a BSA pitstop bulliten board up a few years ago that was great. Some of the regulars were Lannis, Orlando,Whitey,Attilio, and many others, all characters. Are any of you guys still out there.
