I've visited your site many times. Great stuff!
I was very active in off-road riding in the 70s and early 80s in New England. I rode an OSSA Pioneer for many enjoyable miles. I loved that machine.
As a New England Trail Riders (NETRA) member, I was on the board of trustees, state trail director, and co-founded a local chapter. I also contributed articles and photography to Bob Hicks' New England Trail Rider Magazine. Bob was an American ISDT Rider (OSSA) in the late 60s, and early 70s). He's into boats now. Very interesting guy.
In 1973, Don Norris (Hicks' publishing partner) and I visited John Taylor (President of Yankee Motors -- OSSA importer, etc.) in Schenectady, NY. We returned to the Boston, MA area with a new OSSA SDR in tow. (Taylor also gave me a factory OSSA race banner which I still have.) Over the next month or so, a few of us took the SDR for test rides and contributed observations and photos for a New England Trail Rider Magazine article.
