c Th at th ese Dream s of mine were already T wo Y ears Old, and ridin g on in to another N ew Season. It was Lab or Day, th e approaching grand finale of Su m mer. I felt some su btle difference in th e air. No, m ore in th e Earth itself. Y eah . Ev en th ough th e days were sti ll hot , that deep inner warm th was leav ing. It was th e early begi nning of that chi ll soo n to p ierce th e dawn air, and that n o leath ers w ill k eep o u t. Th e roadsid e trees wi ll blaze with colors no w , briefl y, for a while yet, th en lose their leaves to Fall 's eager w ind. T hose favo ite blistering and twisting pavem ent s of ours wi ll harden and be slick as glass once m ore. T he wide open di rt will blanket over with frost . Face it! As m uch as we try and han g on to an Endless Su m mer! T hose last year's insu lated ridi ng clot hes are going to be coming down ou t of th e closet. We'll put on our lon gies and th ick gaun tlet g loves. A nd, fo r many of us motorcyclists, th e in evitable snows of W in ter will fo rce our bik es inside ti ll Sp ring. But before we wheel th em to th e garage and cover them up, we'll ride again and again into this Summer's fading tw il ight. We'll grab at th e goo d days and even challenge th e bad. W e'll seek th e lon g Autumn backroa ds that tak e us away from Th e News World and give us a new one, all fo r ourselves. A nd w hen th e big races are over and th e cham pionships wo n, we'll p retend we are Th e W inners. We'll tak e th ese visions South, into packed stadiums, out to fast ice. And we' ll dream of our coming seasons on dirt and pavem en t - w hen it all will happen all over again. N ew chances for everyone! T he kid from th e clu bs will rise u p and star. T he injured p ro will heal and come back again, better th an ever. T he oldtimer w ill han g it u p and tak e on some th ing new. Th ere wi ll be anot h er Sp rin g 's test in g, another Summer's trying and changing and proving, wi n n ing and losing. N ew R iders wi ll become names w hi le Continuing Champs add to legends. And if toe - don 't already kn ow w ho we are and how we ride, we' ll damn we ll find out. W e'll ex perience and g row and endure. Mot orcycles do th is to a body and soul. It comes with the package! Gi ft-wrapped. W i lliam Edga r . .. . Copyright Page 3 Productions.
