What a find! Dain Gingerelli was one of my favorite motorcycle authors way back in the 70s and 80s. The first thing I read of his was a story called something like "Top End City at the Big O", about coaxing the last little bit of performance out of a hot Yamaha two stroke, and I was hooked. Just the name of that article gives you an idea of his big, brash, fun outlook on motorcycles. After that I looked in every motorcycle magazine for the Gingerelli by-line. Seems like Dain wrote for all the rags, from the big boys like Motorcyclist all the way down to the little niche mags like Hot Bike, and I read them all.
After a while I parked the bike and moved on to other things in life, but it was a real nostalgic blast to read Dain again after so many years.
