I’m in the middle of Lancaster county, in front of the Strasburg Country Store (“Soft Black Raspberry – Reputation Unrivalled”.) I’m having a Genuine Motorcycle Experience, having gotten up at the crack of dawn, put on my new elkskin gloves, and ridden out on back roads to the small towns where there are grooves on the right side of the asphalt from the horse-drawn buggies. My GME was completed when something small and easily fixed broke on the bike that I could pull over and FIX WITH MY BARE HANDS! (The speedometer cable came unscrewed.)
…and now I’m writing about it on my iPaq with a wireless Omnisky modem. Take me now, Lord! Take me now!
