Joe on his1958(?) Puch motorcycle, Palo Alto, 1964

About a half-hour after this photo was taken, Joe and his parents' friends' son Mark rode over to Los Gatos to meet the parents. On the way there, while shifting from third to fourth, the clutch disintegrated, locking the drivetrain. We left a very lengthy skid and stayed upright almost to the end. Just a few bruises and, yes, we were wearing helmets. Every parent's nightmare...
