Mike and I spent carefree sultry summer afternoons
Riding the gentle hills of southeastern Connecticut
Mike on his Triumph Bonneville
And I struggling to keep up on my 250cc Yamaha.
Today I meet a Triumph rider in the Berkshire Hills
So full of summer and the tourist onslaught
He heads for the open road, bedroll tied to his backseat
Where did the wanderlust of old vanish to?
And high ideals?
