Cave Of Wonders Found Deep In New Hampshire

The seemingly endless saga of restoring my old GSXR brought my father and I to Drum Hill Cycles in Nashua, New Hampshire- a massive warehouse full old motorcycle parts, basically a Cave of Wonders to a couple retro-moto enthusiasts. Aside from a small banner on the road-facing wall, there’s not much to tip you off…

Crossing The Simpson

Racing atmosphere is full-on.  This ain’t no Friday Night Thunder at the New England Dragway… there…
