THE LONESOME LOWDOWN LONG-GONE OUTBOUND SCOOTERTRASH BLUES
Preramble, Disclaimers, and Dedication




When my first book like this, Longrider, went into a third printing, the publisher called and asked me could I do it again. I told him if he'd let me do it two or three more times, I figured I might could get it right.

That resulted in a second book of motorcycle stories. They called that one The Ghost of Scootertrash Past. I wanted to call the first one either On The Road or War and Peace, and the second one More Scooterstories or maybe Roadkill Encounters. I am not allowed to name my books. Everyone is real glad I never had children.

Since then I have rode a few more miles and had several more experiences worth telling about. Beyond new roads and tales, I've managed some introspection here in my dotage. So there are some ruminations and reflections and rants. And there have been a few breakthroughs in the ever-increasing senility that have permittied me to dredge up a few more memories from the long gone by, the distant past, and them bygone days of yore. And the statue of limitations has run out in a few instances.

Be a damn shame if these stories and perspectives were lost to history and censorhip and lack of being told.

Like the first books, this here one is gospel truth. Except of course in the instances where I find myself confessing to crimes that are still pending in certian jurisdictions.

The moral of it all seems to be that The Ride Goes on Forever and The Highway Never Ends. Here we go again.

To quote further from the old song, The Lonesome Lowdown Long-gone Outbound Scootertrash Blues, We're all of us bound for Glory, and some of us have somestories about goin' at it the long way around and takin' the hard way out.
