Ah thanks. In '68 I was living in the bay area blissfully ignorant of
computers, thinking they were far too complex for my little mind :-)

reminds me of a quote from someone about riding their '68 BSA
Thunderbolt over the bay bridge, wind in their hair, thinking the world
was about to go through some radical changes... :-)

(I once had a '70 BSA thunderbolt. best bike I ever owned. I swear it
would climb 10' walls if asked nicely)

am I off topic yet? :-)
