Author that inspired Red Barchetta rides with Neil

There is a great ride story from Richard Foster, the guy who wrote "A Nice Morning Drive", the story that inspired Neil to write Red Barchetta.

Most excellent! \m/

I used that story in our homeschool one day. We read Mr. Foster's story and then Red Barchetta and did a compare/contrast kind of thing. That was fun.

Thanks for this, BBO.

I remember reading that quite a while ago....think an aquaintance lent me a copy, or something. Story was cool, but the song was better.

I agree, but the article/road chronicle is brilliant. http://www.bmwbmw.org/bmwforums/viewtop ... sc&start=0
