The article author remembers the joys of motorcycle riding during the good old days. According to the author, she loved her analog odometer and did not like it when gauges went digital. The author claims that, although she is no gearhead, she loved her carbureted engine. The author adds that new riders will only ever know the luxury of having accessories that detach easily, like a windshield and a luggage rack.
