Please.....no Tuff Wheels on full on race bikes...original graphite’s only and pre 81 and never on a cruiser for God’s sake
Let me guess you were factory sponsored in

Please no colored tires on race bikes...
So how many years were you a Pro....

Yeah, she’s always been a hottie, but I’ve always been partial to Jane Wiedlin.  The great Jackie Wilson would call her a Reet Petite!

Re: **BEST MEMORY OF THE 80's**

Btw, one of the cable channels (I think it was HBO) aired a documentary about the Go Gos.  I saw it the other day, and it was good.

Ok...so living in Detroit during my early years I have a deep love for all things Motown...Smoky, The Temps...David Ruffin was a God...Stevie Wonder and Martha Reeves lived in the city of Inkster, where I lived once we moved from Detroit...well my cousin moved out to the country..I’ll admit we’re Hillbillies...well I see the older Black gentleman walking up his driveway..decked out like a straight up Cowboy..he says ahh that Old Mr Wilson...his Dad was some singer.. l lost my shit...I told him how much I admired his Fathers talent...and he told me some great stories...One of the great things about this city and why I’m proud to be part of it..
